The SoundSticks ii are an incredible set of speakers. Sound quality is phenomenal with everything from ground shaking lows to intense highs produced flawlessly. Volume is controlled via small touch sensitive pads on the right speaker, and sound is muted with the push of both pads simultaneously. I wish it came with a remote, but the current set up works fine.
The SoundSticks ii are solidly built with no cracks/openings in the plastic, even after several months of use. Each speaker has a reinforced metal base which not only stabilizes the setup, but lets you change the angle of the speaker. The sub woofer is mostly hard plastic, with no metal base, but it still holds up well.
The overall design of the SoundSticks is very modern. Both the speakers and sub woofer are clear plastic allowing the consumer to see the inner workings of the set-up. All though this might not appeal to everyone, the interesting design fits in perfectly with the futuristic technology of today.
The SoundSticks ii help create the ideal audio set-up, and are highly reccomended. These speakers are the best you can get for this price.
