What customers say about "Key Specs"
 
Audioengine A2+ Wireless 60W Powered Desktop Speakers
  • That's plenty loud enough when sitting two feet in front of them, and I think that you could sit anywhere in a small room and never run out of power.
  • No hassle, goes into power saving idle mode if no input for a period of time.
  • Powerful, well constructed little speakers with great audio qualities.
  • I can highly recommend these very powerful little speakers, they are absolutely amazing for playing music and video games at my desk.
  • Personally I'd like to have the option of a removable grill so I can be allowed to prioritise protecting the drivers.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
 
Audioengine A2+ Wireless 60W Powered Desktop Speakers
  • I have a massive hi-fi on the living room and it's easy to compare. The size is perfect.
  • Good looking, powered desktop speakers. Very impressive sound for their size.
  • Small size and bright enamel means they probably look a lot cleaner and better than the speakers they are replacing.
  • So far the sound is great and they are the perfect size to blend into a room without taking over.
  • The speakers are reassuingly heavy, but it's well built and with quality connections.

What customers say about "Audio"
 
Audioengine A2+ Wireless 60W Powered Desktop Speakers
  • Clear, quality, punchy sound in games( RTS/MMO) & music is equally so, picks up all the little backing lyrics/sounds really well.
  • Powerful bass and mindrage and treble area razor sharp for a very contained dimensions. Whorth the money.
  • They do what I wanted them to do, which is give a wider range of frequency and stereo sound for things like movies and concert videos/broadcasts.
  • The speakers are actually really nice - they look great and the mid and high level frequencies sound in line with something you'd expect from a set of proper studio monitors.
  • The weakness of deeper frequencies manifests as a lack of 'spaciousness' to the sound.

What customers say about "Features"
 
Audioengine A2+ Wireless 60W Powered Desktop Speakers
  • Good quality feel, sturdy, solid weight wooden cabinets.
  • I also appreciate the straightforward, no-nonsense design and quality materials and construction.
  • The speakers can connect to your computer via USB so you can control the volume via the computer controls.
  • Volume control is somewhat awkwardly placed on the back of the power speaker.
  • The only slight niggle is that the power/volume switch is on the rear and therefore isn't as handy as one would like.
