Today I am going to check out the Audyssey Lower East Side Speakers. This is a small stereo speaker set the promises big sound in a little package. If you're looking for a compact set of speakers on a larger budget, the Audyssey Lower East Side Speakers could be perfect for you. Read on for all the details.
Each of the little Lower East Side speakers in the pair measures 4.9-inches wide by 6.8-inches deep by 9-inches high and the set weighs 7 pounds combined. The speakers come with the power cable, a 3.5 mm audio cable, and the speaker interconnect cable. Inside each of the satellite speakers is a .75-inch tweeter, a 3-inch woofer, and 4-inch passive bass radiator. The speaker also has a headphone input and a line input. You can purchase the speakers for $249.99 right now.
Unpacking the speakers was very simple, as was setting them up. All you have to do is unwrap the two speakers along with the power cord and speaker wires. One wire connects the left speaker to the right speaker is included. The 3.5 mm patch cable plugs into one of the speakers and into the back of your computer or your other device. Then all you have to do is plug in the power cord you ready to listen. My Windows computer recognized the speakers right away and configured itself to use them.
This is a rather expensive set of speakers considering that they don't even come with a subwoofer as a separate piece. Typically, when we are talking about set of speakers at this cost they have a component subwoofer included. I will admit I was a little bit skeptical of getting decent bass out of a set of speakers lacking an external subwoofer.
My skepticism wasn't needed and as soon as I fired up the speakers, I knew right away that these had more bass than most speakers that include an external subwoofer. The bass the speakers has was deep and sounded great. These speakers offer the sort of bass that you would consider room filling and you can hear and feel it.
The speakers are as at home listening to music as they are watching a movie or playing video games. I use the speakers quite a bit for listening to audio from Netflix streaming movies. I watch the Red Baron on Netflix and the explosions and machine gun fire were very realistic. Audio quality for the spoken words and other sounds was top-notch as well. The speakers are expensive, but if you want something that sounds good and doesn't take up a lot of space; the Audyssey Lower East Side Speakers are an excellent choice.
- Room filling bass
- Great overall sound quality
If the slightly under $250 asking price doesn't scare you away, this is an excellent set of speakers that will leave you extra space on your desk or in the entertainment center.
