Incredibly good sound ...
Bought a pair of Creative T10, but had to leave back then I was unhappy with the sound. Got these instead, and how satisfied anywhere. The only negative I found is that it takes about 5 seconds before the speaker starts to make a noise after you sat on them.
Very clean and clear sound but for the money I had expected a lot more, base does not exist and sounds tinny in the lower frequencies.
I was going to give them one month inna I reviewed them but I could not wait. They have överaskat so good that I could not hold me.
+ Yes sound so clear (deep bass and do just fine over the high notes)
+ Connector for analog cables
- The size
I've been looking speakers for a while now and since I wanted to avoid an external sub, I chose these above HK SoundSticks. I tested both at Media Markt and the sound is not as good in T40: na as SoundSticks: a but not far away. I can pump them up to almost max and they lose hardly anything of sharpness or depth.
As for build quality, I can not answer on that, but given that I had six different creative products and no torn apart Mp3 ROM that I dropped into the water so I expect nothing more than that I'm still listening to these ten years.
Just after I unpacked and plugged in, I thought frankly they sounded boring & cheap tinny, a sharp resonance around 100-200 Hz ruined the experience. Airy and fine treble and powerful midrange, good spatial representation but right hollow in the base, that is.
Though this seems to have fixed itself after using the speakers for a while so the speaker elements had a chance to loosen up properly. Now let the fantastically nice especially beyond the immediate near field when the base seems to come more into its own and gives the impression of a good small stereo system. A tad sensitive placement as noted by others but perfectly manageable.
The soundstage is extremely comfortable even at low volume, rich and full of detail. Fills easily a hotel with high-class euphony which was my main purpose for the purchase. Want really good sound with me when we travel and therefore got a little foam rubber padded aluminum case to the speakers to make them easily portable. The bag can hold speakers and power supply, just exactly as large as needed. Everything is pre-wired in the bag so I put up the plant in half a minute.
Wonderful feeling of quality in these speakers, perfect if you can sacrifice a little of the deepest bass to avoid 2.1-clutter and get a lot of portability in the bargain. For my purposes, these speakers a spot 10: a Had I needed heavier deep bass there are other options for the price but not without that I'd had to give a lot of the nice midrange and treble, and the "soundstage" as T40 II produces.
Update 2011-03-26: if possible, even more pleased with the speakers after using them extensively as a speaker to the computer for some time. I run them through an external Aueron Dual USB, inexpensive way to get really ok sound. Usually also use a good headphone amp between the sound card and T40 to get even higher transparency.
