Seriosly go with something from Grado, AudioTechnica, or AKG. Beats will get you nothing but over the top bass with muddy mids and highs. Seems like all anyone cares about is heavy bass.

put me on speaker systems
hey guys, i am looking to improve the speakers i have for my tv. currently i have 2 small speakers that hook up to a subwoofer that my dad got from work. i am planning to upgrade because i want better sound when i play xbox and watch dvds. please recommend me some brands and places that would get me a good deal. i am looking for the same thing, 2 speakers with a sub but greater quality. maybe even set up a surround sound with speaker stands?

thanks

Using studios, i love em.
I guess i could of got better soundquality for the money but they look alot better then some ugly ass sennheisers.
Sound quality is perfect imo, noise cancelling could be a bit better.


1. doap contradiction
2. headphones aren't all about fashion better soundquality > looks

i'd rather have a better quality pair of jeans that fit slightly sloppy then meh quality wit a good fit

You guys are talking about the aesthetics of cans? Lets not forget the purpose of headphones in the first place. Might as well go for IEMs if you care about looks....

Sure you can go ahead and get a Logitech 5.1 computer speaker set, but you might want to look into getting a soundbar as another alternative.

there are home theater in a box systems that are pretty cheap but it kind of depends on the TV you have. i have a panasonic SA-PT770 5.1 system for $40 and have it hooked up to my Sony TV with a optic audio cable. The TV automatically detects the surround sound system and turns it on when i turn on the TV then switching audio to the external speakers. I never have to touch the surround sound system remote/controls since I can control everything with my cable/tv remote. sounds good too

nah, not worth it, I have em and in all honesty, they arn't worth their price. good for gaming and movies for sure, but for music? mediocre. the mids are barely there, highs are really really thin, the bass isn't tight, a tad too boomy. no on board EQ (which would fix a majority of the issues) and plastic housings for heavy speakers. but for their price and size, its good for a bedroom media center, you just have to find the sweet spot for the Sub. I would've never bought these if the Edifier S550 had a built in decoder and accepted digital connections, or if creative still sold and made their mini DACs.

for the OP, Creative and Logitech make good cheap "surround" sound systems. A majority of them are not true surround since they only simulate surround with a stereo signal. with that said, you're really better of getting a surround sound bar with a sub. For true surround you should opt for anything that accepts toslink/digital coax, which is rare now a days for PC speakers, and for that, you'd need to have a bigger budget.

keep this in mind when buying anything audio related, you get what you paid for.
