I own the 2200 version and for all purposes it is the same but looks different.
As speakers they are great. They lack a little in the bass response but everything else sounds crystal clear. The only thing that bothers me is there tippy. But for that price they are defiantly worth it. I think I may have payed $60 when I originally bought mine about a year and a half ago.
These conversion units:
Dimension (L x W x H) Satellite Speaker: 11cm x 6.5cm x 22.5cm
Dimension (L x W x H) Satellite Speaker: 4.331” x 2.559” x 8.858”
Look too weird?
Are these like pocket speakers for a cell phone conversation with Elvis?
WOOT, are you trying to tweak my timber here? Or do these just have some mysterious, cosmic synchronicity with shapely sets of electric blue earplugs?
I also have the 2200 and paid at least double what woot is selling the 2300s for.
Sound quality is decent at lower volume levels. Bass is lacking, but if you’re looking for that thump that resonates in your gut, odds are you’ll be wanting something much beefier for the inevitable higher power levels.
Good luck finding that powered sub from creative. Maybe someone else sells one that’s appropriate.
The TONE adjustment reminds of a crappy boomboxes from twenty years ago. It’s best left alone.
The headphone jack spits out sound at a depressingly low volume.
The volume control pot got scratchy in a bad hurry. I find that “cleaning” it by rotating it back and forth a few dozen times helps for a little while, but I’m sure that’s just accelerating the wiper’s inevitable failure.
For the price they’re allright so long as you acknowledge that these are not the perfect set of speakers, but will do great in situations where you want some inexpensive decent-quality speakers … such as a location that occasionally sees a laptop parked nearby or to bridge the gap between headphones and a speaker rack … tending more towards headphones.
Centimeters are the units of measure that, by law, we should have begun using in the late 1970's. (Google "Metric Conversion Act of 1975")
You picked up a few significant digits, there, didn't you? Let's just say they're 4.3" x 2.6" x 8.9".
Imagine a pair of pretty black of ritz cracker stack tube thingies sitting on your desk. They’re fairly small, in my opinion had pleasent mids, acceptable highs, and a slight touch of bass. They’re very easy on the ears and look fashionable to boot. Good for personal sound… especially if you have whiny apartment neighbors or roommates. Fry’s and/or best buy might have them in their listening stations. I’m sure you guys could check out the klipsch 2.0 pair if you want something more serious without serious bass, but for $25+5 this is not a bad deal for sound clarity.

Who cares how low it can go if it sounds like poo? Also, most humans can’t hear anything below 20Hz.

Ya, they do work as computer speakers.
Actually “feeling” can occur at 20Hz, but definitely not “hearing.”
The I-Trigue speakers from Creative are pretty good. They are by far no where near an audiophile’s dream but they are a heck of a lot better than your normal laptop speakers. I don’t own this pair but do own the 2.1 system and have enjoyed them for the college life for about 4 years now.
