Harman Kardon Soundsticks III Review

 

These interesting looking speakers might look great, but do they sound great too?

The elegant, curvy visual appearance of the Soundsticks III is a little at odds with the aggressive sonic tone. However, the sound from the set was patchy, and some elements of the design weren’t as clean as we’d want from something so visually...

Harman Kardon SoundSticks III review: Harman Kardon SoundSticks III

 

Harman Kardon SoundSticks III

The ; 2.1 speakers equip music lovers with four drivers in each satellite and a large subwoofer to pump extra bass.

There's no external jack for plugging in headphones, the bass controls are mounted on the subwoofer itself, and there's no way to turn off the translucent lighting without powering down the entire system.

The $170 SoundSticks III speakers offer light cosmetic upgrades (and unfortunately retain a few irritations) from the previous model, but if you're a fan of the iridescent design, this speaker system won't disappoint.

Harman Kardon SoundSticks III

 

The Harman Kardon SoundSticks III is mainly a cosmetic upgrade of previous models, and a subtle one at that, but this 2.1-channel PC speaker set remains our Editors' Choice.

Excellent audio performance. Unique—and now classic—design. Powerful, with strong subwoofer. Improved cable quality.

No remote control. Bass volume control is on subwoofer itself. Semi-hardwired cables—if cables fail, system needs to be repaired or replaced.

Best value 2.1 computer speakers

 

The futuristic, see-through design of the Harman Kardon SoundSticks (now part of the permanent collection of New York's Museum of Modern Art) has impressed critics since it debuted a decade ago -- and so has the clear, full sound. The latest...

Clear, detailed sound, affordable, no distortion at high volumes, museum-quality design

No headphone jack, no volume indicator on volume buttons, no remote, no way to turn off the glowing light

HARMAN KARDON SoundSticks III 2.1 PC Speakers - Clear

 

Well designed and constructed speakers that feel very sturdy, this set of speakers was designed by the same man who also designed many apple products and actually has a place in an art museum (the more you know). The sound quality and clarity is second...
