Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still look spacy great, still sound awesome These are the best computer speakers you can get. By design this futuristic stix III desktop speaker system sounds every bit as good from the first model to the most recent stix III . I look at others but all pale in quality, design, and sound. It has it all, good looks, style, performance and beauty. I never tire of them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from <3 Always a fan I owned the original Soundsticks for about 10 years. As before, the sound quality and design are amazing. I can't speak on the tech details and definitions about it, but I can say the audio is so clear even at low volumes. I love the new cable shielding, it looks like it can take a beating which is great because ...things happen >_> . I have no complaints about cable length. I love the subwoofer. I have always been amazed with the subwoofer, It's so powerful and distributes smoothly. Hey, was the external cover of the speaker thinned out? I'm actually kind of surprised they haven't added a remote control by now, since we're now on version 3. But even more important than that..... I'm not entirely sure I like this bluetooth feature. I think it interferes with wireless internet signals, so you may notice a drop in speed. As well, I live in an apartment now and sometimes neighbors randomly connect to my speakers via bluetooth. It makes me cringe to think what my neighbors could be watching/listening to. Please fix this! Or better yet, just get rid of the bluetooth altogether.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this system and design. Love the clean and minimalistic design. Very well thought out all the way down the to the color matched braided cords, nice but subtle details that can be appreciated. Sounds great, Sub has more than enough thump for games and movies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the look. Love the sound. Purchased a refurbished Soundsticks III. Arrived in a couple of days. No packaging or delivery issues. Unpacking and setup was easy. After slight adjustment to the sound angle for the speakers I cranked it up. Great sound for a 2.1 setup. Bass is better the adequate. The high and mids clarity is impressive. More than enough power for my home office. Then there is the design! As an engineer appreciate the unique design. Very impressive. Even passed my wife’s approval! Looking forward to years of great sound!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I loved these speakers unconditionally ...and then they died. These speakers brought incredible sound to my desk. BUT, one of the plastic speaker housings popped open within the first year and had to be glued back together. Yes, I should have returned it under warranty—hindsight is always 20/20. Then, just over 3 years after purchase, the speakers just died for no apparent reason. Am I expecting too much from a product? I'd like to think that this didn't involve planned obsolescence...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Distortion free ! These Soundsticks are awesome. They came very well packaged, and perform as advertised, if not better. The volume that comes out of the satellite speakers is hard to believe. It is clear and well defined with no distortion. The same goes for the subwoofer. No distortion and accurate tight bass. I love 'em!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worked for 30seconds then failed. I Purchased the soundsticks III last week, they arrived, and I set them up this afternoon and after 30seconds of music, the satellite volume control failed. I worked through the troubleshooting, and no change, sound to the subwoofer and nothing to the satellites. Touch control on the satellites either failed, or a loose connection internally. Years ago (maybe 2004) I had the original soundsticks they lasted me about 10years I seem to remember and were awesome. Not so for the new version. I have requested a refund, as I expect higher quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still great after all these years I own a pair of the original USB connected SoundSticks and they continue to sound fantastic and are honestly the best investment I have ever made in a set of speakers. They have a solid, clean, sound. No boomy quality--very neutral for all kinds of music and crystal clear highs thanks to the forward facing sticks and their 4 small tweeters. Very highly recommended!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Decent sound quality for price I have for 4 years already, and they start to break, one speaker got splited to two parts, cracks are start to appear on the plastic, I must state that they have never got hit or fall, they staied always on the same place with enough space for air flow. Cables are very short and limit you with placing the speakers. Subwaffer design is problematic and bat, the whole for air flow let tings to get inside very easy if something fall in there

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The sound, the sound Always wanted a pair of these. Formerly in the recording industry, I knew that these recover the sound "as it was recorded". If you are an audiophile, you'll love it. Deep and rich, clean sound. Secret: If you have hardwood floors, place the bass unit on the floor, to boost the resonance!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product, Great Price This is a Harman Kardon Refurbished product. Came at a great price. So far they are working perfectly. I was skeptical at first.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've had mine for 17 Years:) To the best of my knowledge, I bought my set of sound sticks in the year 2000. These have lasted near decades worth of use. They sound great and I want another set. The ones I have are USB only. Surprisingly the still work on the latest Mac OS. This is the only reason for me needing to purchase another set.. Mine will end up at moms:)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional Masterpiece I bought this in late August and have used it just about everyday. I am a fanatic for base and love the sound. The sound sticks let me enjoy my music on another level producing clean, crisp and mind blowing base and sound. Not only does it produce amazing clarity but the design is very stylish

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Quirpy From the start, I had problems with the speakers. At first they just didn't work and I was upset. I then began to move them around and grabbed the right speaker at it's base and cord and pushed down, and the volume increased and they started to work, so I left them alone. They worked for a while then one day stopped again. I had to repeat but the second I time was more involved then above. I feel like returning them but have too much going on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply awesome! I purchased a refurbished SoundSticks system to replace a system that was failing (developing static). I was simply amazed by the rich natural sound of this system. My previous system was very boomy in the bass response. These are very balanced across all of the frequencies. The only issues I have are a the lack of a power switch on the sound sticks instead of the sub woofer and tone controls would have been nice, although not entirely necessary. They do look really cool and sound great. I highly recommend them !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent choice! I am extremely pleased with the Harman Kardon sounds ticks lll. The order came expeditiously and was simple to set up. The sound quality is awesome, even at low volume. I use the sounds ticks with my computer, so watching movies brings an added pleasure, the speakers have a full rich sound and the bass tube has a volume control to add or decrease the bass. Excellent choice, I would recommend this product with out question!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Sound, Great Look The sounds is really great on these, and the look is unparalleled. That said, I do wish there was a way to tell what the volume level was at *before* you played something. Also, being able to know where in the volume range your touch (on the right side control) was at would also be of help (either through small LED indicators or something - even software monitoring controls would be helpful). It would also have been a MUCH better design if the cords were all simple jacks, not integrated. Makes it difficult (if not impossible) to replace, should any get damaged (and at the cost, replacing cords is a MUST! *VERY* disappointed in this aspect). Despite that rather critical failing (which all lower-priced 2.1 systems I've seen also have), I decided to go with this because of HK's reputation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superlative. Highest recommendations Wife got me this for as present. Used professional monitor speakers (DAW) and Logitechs (no complaints). Huge classical music fan and professional violinist. Composition dabbler. Superb sound- very warm timbre, crisp, truly room enveloping- not overwhelmed by complex symphonic polyphony. Highest recommendations.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound from my computer Bought these to upgrade the speakers that came with the monitor. Glad I did! While these are not stereo/theater system quality, they more than suffice for my computer system. Crisp highs and a booming low balance the speakers nicely. A true audiophile will miss some of the mid-low range, but the speakers are not tinny in any way. I read a review that complained the wires were too short. I found that I had more than enough length to place them above a 28" monitor with a 34" desk height (sub woofer sits on floor beneath desk). My only complaint is not having an on/off switch on one of the satellite speakers (on the back/bottom of the sub woofer). I did a work around by plugging into switched strip that I shut off from the side of the desk.
Date published: 2016-05-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The bass is what I was after, and these deliver. When I first hooked them up, I had a hard time figuring out how to boost the volume. It took me a while before I realized the right satellite driver has a touch sensitive volume control. Otherwise these things are pretty powerful and look cool. Perfect desktop speakers for whatever you need them for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blown Away!!! I like to listen to my music loud enough to drown out any other sounds in the house... never had a system that cranks as awesomely as this one! Everything sounds GREAT, full highs and lows deep thumping bass that can rival woofers of larger sizes. No distortion at all, just a clean, premium sound I have been unable to find in any other products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exquisite (my first attempt to review got frozen, and when i hit Escape, i lost everything, so I hope this is not being redundant) I liked my Sound Sticks so much I gave my set to my sister and bought a second for myself. Then i decided to buy a third set and hooked up two sets for my own listening enjoyment (via a Y-adapter). If my sister were an audiophile herself, I'd buy an extra set for her as well.

My wife and I play cards in the kitchen and blast the music from the computer in the office. There is no distortion.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Why stop with great sound? As many have said, terrific sound! But HK misses an opportunity to integrate these into the OS (Win or Mac). These would be perfect if they could be controlled from the OS environment. Either with their own program or full integration into the OS. I'm thinking power, sub-woofer volume, moving the volume control off the speaker and fully into the computer. Maybe SoundSticks IV?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HK - SoundSticks III Previous owner of HK computer speakers which sounded great and lasted almost 20 years! How could I go wrong...? These HK SS III are not only the best bargain in computer speakers, they match up on sound with anything out there. Definitely worth it!!! Only downside is the standard audio jack interface/input is kind of old school. Probably should upgrade that.
Date published: 2014-09-18
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fantastic apperance but . . . Having had the Soundsticks III for a while now and being a bit of an audio buff I am reasonably competent to review them. Firstly, Everyone loves their amazing appearance and generally they sound great for their size. The pluses are: 1) Excellent transient response and they are reproduced with a lot of bite. 2) A reasonable amount of bottom-end bass for the subwoofer size. Minuses are: 1) At high volume I feel that the small power supply cannot keep up with the demands made of it and there is noticeable 'pumping'. 2) I always want the touch sensor volume at maximum and to control the volume with my PC. When I shut down my system the speakers are completely powered off and after a couple of days or so, when I power them back up, the sensor volume reverts to a much lower factory pre-set volume. I have to again adjust the sensor up to the maximum level. They should store the volume setting in non-volatile RAM. My other system runs a older Logitech Z2300 2.1 speaker system and at a similar price there is absolutely no real comparison.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Harman Kardon Sounsticks 3 I love these speakers so much!!! My dad has the Sounsticks 2 and I have the Sounsticks 3. The audio is so crisp and clear with no distortion its unbelievable! The bass is really good too but I wish the speakers would automatically be able to turn its bass down when the speakers can't handle it. But don't take this the wrong way because I love being able to turn the bass up and down. Tho I'm always having to constantly minuter the speakers to make sure that they don't rattle when the speakers can't handle the bass it get tiring. it rattles pretty loud and is pretty noticeable to hear it when it happens. I Love bass, I can never get to much of it. Hopefully soon you come out with a Soundsticks 4 with way better bass!!! Please, it would make me Soooo happy. I have already recomended theses speakers to so many of my friends and will continue to pass on the word of how great these speakers are.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Unbeatable sound for the size and price. Since I couldn't demo these in a store before purchasing, I was a bit hesitant. However, I am thrilled with the speakers. They have amazing sound for something this size and price. My only dislike is the same that most others have noted - the on-off button is on the subwoofer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Sound!!!!! I have had a set of Cambride Sound Works from 2004. Don't get me wrong at the time they were the best you could buy at that price point, but I was starting to get a lot of feed-back from the speaker wires. The Haman set-set up is so easy and the speaker system sounds great. I believe they have a little more pick me up than Cambridge! I am really happy with my purchase!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sweet Speakers, one flaw Love the sound quality and volume, they look great too. Sometimes I wish I could turn the light in the sub-woofer off while listening but it's not horrible. One problem is that they sometimes stop working when I use the volume control and I need to cycle the power to get them working again. Not sure why this is happening.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great PC Speakers; one minor complaint Beautiful looking; beautiful sounding desktop PC speakers. Only issue is lack of even a simple tone control (treble/bass) on a desktop control. (There is a tone control/power switch on the sub-woofer. But, that is placed on the floor under the desk.) The speakers are great as desktop speakers. Do not have unrealistic expectations of room filling sound without distortion at high volumes. But, for what they are, they are great speakers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound! Before this purchase i read many other reviews and found that so many people really don't know what they're talking about when it comes to sound. They don't know where to place the speakers, or how to adjust the subwoofer, then they talk about audiophile quality......$165.00 doesn't buy that! However, i don't think you can find anything better at this, or a little higher, price range.......Great Job!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Aesthetically Pleasing, Awesome Sound Quality Product looks awesome, sounds awesome, and is compact. Mine arrived faulty with a crackling sound from the two satellites as if they were blown and I am replacing them but even with the crackling I could still tell the quality of the speakers, which is why I am sticking with the product and model but exchanging them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great look, even better sound, but ... I've enjoyed the SoundSticks with Macs for several years, but with each upgrade to OSX, the SoundSticks get buggier and buggier, not wanting to work at all without jumping through a bunch of hoops. The hardware is fine, as they always work if I connect to an older computer with an older version of OSX. HK really needs to come up with a fix to their USB driver so these can be enjoyed with current Macs. If / when that happens, they get the 5th star back. Thanks for looking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tasty Tunes Being an audiophile, I strive to find products that satisfy my appetite for crisp sounds and clean bass. HK SoundSticks III sate me. You can figuratively taste the music
