What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Harman Kardon Soundsticks III LED Desktop Wired Speaker System - Transparent
  • The wires that are built in to the sub and pair of satellite speakers are really well built and great wire size with a silver braid around em, again not flimsy!
  • They sound great! Able to fill up a room the size of a 2 car garage nicely. They're great value for the price and I'd definitely choose these again.
  • Subwoofer is not overwhelming in size, fairly light in weight, allowing the set to easily be transported to a different area with ease.
  • These speakers put out a lot of sound for their small size.
  • The bases of the speakers are heavily weighted and rubberized, so they don't move at all.

What customers say about "Audio"
Harman Kardon Soundsticks III LED Desktop Wired Speaker System - Transparent
  • It does not distort at high volumes nor does it get in the way of the other frequencies at low volumes.
  • They do not distort at high frequencies, even at high volume, and the bass is not muddled. The highest frequencies are crisp and delicious taking your listening experience to the next level.
  • I gotta add that the volume controls on the speaker is touch sensitive!
  • The sub has great frequency response and delivers surprising rich, deep bass.
  • Although the initial presets are great, I recommend increasing the mid-level frequencies using your iTunes equalizer by a click or two.
  • I could easily complain about how certain frequencies are slightly off but honestly, nothing is perfect.
  • You can adjust the volume easily with the sensitive touch buttons on one of the satellite speakers, and mute it by touching both buttons at same time, but you don't know how high or low are they (for me is not a real problem but for people that need visual indicators should be).
  • Only downside is that there is a slight hissing on the left speaker, i think this is normal and is due to the high sensitivity of the speakers themselves, sometimes it's there sometimes its not.

What customers say about "Features"
Harman Kardon Soundsticks III LED Desktop Wired Speaker System - Transparent
  • Great sound for a 2.1 channel.
  • Hook it up is easy. Require one power outlet for the sub that's it.
  • The most striking piece of the set is the sub, and it's a powerful little guy considering its modest 20W power rating.
  • The speakers are easy to set up, using the basing 3.5mm interface (AUX cable).
  • Only thing so far that has made me irate..umm the 3.5mm cable is too short..its a struggle to plug my macbook into it and like sit comfortably i wish it was longer.
  • And whenever i unplug the 3.5mm jack from audio sources it makes a god awful wretched noise.
