    damn ugly, but hey cant complain with that price.

  • +1 vote

    can't go wrong for the price but reviews are middling at best, though keep in mind these reviews were with the regular-ish price in mind.

    should be fine as long as you don't need them too loud!

          Now I think about it, the speaker does look slightly phallic… Eh, she'd enjoy more because it looks phallic.

          Looks like a giant 'plug'.

    •  

      Because cheap and quality.. hopefully

  • +1 vote

    Thought about those ones and revision II but after reading the reviews (dated back 2009) decided not worth the investment.
    Instead, picked up a pair of JBL Pebbles from DSE for under $60 with quite good and relatively recent reviews across all web channels.
    I know, it's 3-times the price but you gonna listen it every day after all.

    I have a set of the Creatures from many years ago.

    What would be better?
    Duet or Creatures?

    Are the cables (including 3.5mm input) hard wired to the speakers?

  • +1 vote

    They are great speakers but honestly it's not a huge bargain. There are eBay stores selling them for $50 for sometime now. JBL Speaker prices go down massively when they're about to introduce a new model of the same series. This one was introduced in 2011. But if for $24, great value for money. Worth buying..

    Will this work on the TV if it has a PC audio input?

    • +2 votes

      Uhm, your tv will need output, not input, to support external speakers. Look for a headphone output. Many modern tv's don't have those anymore, in which case you can get a converter from optical to analogue out (e.g. this one ), and plug your speaker into that (your tv would need optical or SPDIF out, and you need an optical cable which costs a few bucks from HK). I have one of those because my stereo system does not accept optical-in. That particular converter has very good sound quality.

      •  

        I see, yeah, the TV has a headphone output and a coaxial S/PDIF output. Awesome, thanks for the advice, looks like this is perfect for the TV with the headphone output.

    how's everyone's delivery going for Melbourne?

    •  

      Got an email from Toll saying it should be delivered today. I'll know when I get back from work.

    • +2 votes

      Got mine at lunchtime, set them up and they sound good.

      Compared to my Z623's which I paid $99 for and are 2.1s so not really a fair comparison as these only cost $17 and are 2.0, but RRP of both sets are similar.

      The JBL's are slightly better at producing the high frequencies but I still prefer the Logitechs as they sound better overall, the Z623's aren't perfect either and when they fail I will most likely replace them with the Klipsch Promedia 2.1.

      Having said all that for $17 these are very good value, definitely worth purchasing. Thanks once again OP for posting.

      • +1 vote

        I have the Z623's as well and was planning to upgrade to Klipsch Promedia 2.1 too! what a coincidence :)

        The wife doesn't like the Z623 in the living room so the Duets will replace them :(

      • +1 vote

        I haven't tried the Klipsch Promedia 2.1 yet, but used Klipsch GMX-A 2.1, Altec Lansing MX5021, Altec Lansing CS21. I believe they are in the same class and worth to pay for.

        The JBL Duet III with RRP $150 makes me confident placing the order but it turns out not worth. $17 for an electric speaker if we don't have anything to listen to, that's it. Will not expect so much next time at this price :)

        •  

          Are they really that bad?

          I had mine delivered at 7pm on Friday night and still haven't taken them out of the box. If the sound quality is that poor then I will probably gift them to someone who doesn't really know sound quality, but will reciprocate a gift based on RRP ;)

        •  

          @c0balt:
          You can try yourself and put them back as the box has no seal :)

          To me, its sound quality is not so bad, equivalent to those of 30-40$ speakers, say Creative T3130. My own problem was too high expectation due to brand name JBL @20W speaker with RRP 150$ :))

        •  

          @com930:
          I agree, I also expected much more given the RRP and being JBL.

    •  

      the wife just received mine, first time buying from OO, very impressed with turnaround!

  •  

    Mine arrived today - not bad, however the right speaker at the 500hz frequency seems to resonate so I definitely would not pay the RRP for these as I don't think the quality is worth it. Other than that, pretty happy with the purchase.

  •  

    Mine arrived today as well, I thought there was something wrong with the speaker when bass was all weird (turns out that I should've peeled the plastic that covers the back). My sentiment is in line with the norm here. The speaker is definitely worth $17~25, probably not worth the RRP.

  •  

    got mine today too :)

    they've got nothing on my cheapish creative t20s (~$80), that rrp is ridiculous!

    Mine arrived on yesterday and very happy with the purchase.. It's more bigger than I expected for 25
