Logitech Z533 Multimedia Speaker System : A little disappointed

They are small and smart which i love, but the sound and volume they give out is amazing – love, love, love – thank you logitech :-).

Very decent for the price range. Bought these a few weeks ago to replace my defunct z-2300s. I won’t be comparing these to a proper audio setup, that wouldn’t be fair, so i’ll talk about these according to their price (£79. 95 on amazon as i type this). Crank the volume past 50% and you start to hear that it’s a bit thin and tinny for music, but for gaming these are really good. The subwoofer is really pretty bad, though. It doesn’t purr the bass as opposed to pumping it, and it tends to rattle on certain frequencies. I don’t put the bass slider higher than 55%/60% to avoid this rattle, so if you’re a basshead, i dare say you will have to look elsewhere. But remember how much you’re paying for this system and you really do have to let that slide. The control pod is pretty good. I like the weight of it and the on/off action is nice. The bass slider is bad, it’s in a terrible and awkward position. Still, it’s at least better than the bass control being on the back of the sub itself, which most are. I put a bit of blu tack on the of the control pod side so i can feel the middle position of the slider without having to look at it.

These speakers sound real-to-life, clear highs, expansive mids, and bone rattling lows. I’ve cranked up the bass and treble with an equaliser for my pc and it really brings out the best in these speakers. There’s no struggle or loss of clarity/treble when the bass gets heavy either, even with my equaliser.Got these for a steal price too, £47, but even for £80 they seem like you’re getting a deal. Here are the specifications for the Logitech Z533 Multimedia Speaker System:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Powerful sound: 120 W (60 W of RMS power) of powerful yet balanced acoustics; produced by 2.25 inch (5.7 cm) full-range drivers designed with sound directivity to completely fill a room
  • Bass you can feel; experience rich, dynamic bass with a front-facing subwoofer that immerses you in your music, movies or games
  • Play what you want; 3.5 mm and RCA inputs mean this speaker works with almost any audio source – computer, tablet, smartphone, game console or TV; just plug in and start listening
  • Control at your fingertips; place the wired control pod wherever you want for access to power, volume and bass controls, as well as an extra 3.5 mm jack and a headphone jack
  • Experience you can trust; for more than 30 years, Logitech has created high-quality audio products that bring your sound to life

Alot of people complain about a ‘high pitched noise/humming’ but i have yet to hear that. Incredibly loud bass, i feel sorry for the neighbours.

Brilliant sounding system for the price, it has lost two stars because of two things, one star because the speaker leads are too short and i have now got to spend another six pound to extend them, and then another star is deducted because the wired remote control is permanently attached to the subwoofer. Edifier can make the remote unplug from the subwoofer so logitech, why can`t you?.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Sound quality is great for the price and setup (I have it hooked
  • Very good speakers, well built and good sound!
  • Logitech Take Note

Very good speakers, well built and good sound. I was scared to buy this given the ‘buzzing’ noise many people mentioned in the review, i can’t say i really notice it much, as the computer is not in the bedroom, i guess if it was, i would hear it, but to be honest i am reviewing it based on my experience with it, which is, as expected, an excellent sound, good amounts of bass (not over the top like some speakers) and good clarity, the volume never needs to go more than a quarter as this thing is loudreally good, and would recommend.

Great item works perfectly, well worth the money. Perfect service also thank you.

Initially good quality, but developed a hum. Initially we thought this was amazing, but after about a year it developed a hum. Not sure whether this is a common fault, so only downgrading the score by one star. Original review below:we were amazed to find that you can get such good sound quality for this price – i guess electronics just get cheaper and better all the time. Initially we were put off by the lack of instructions – all you get are some illustrations on the outer packaging. But it turned out that was all that was needed. It was super easy to set up; i think it was about five minutes flat between starting to open the box and actually playing some music off it. The dial feature for the sound is kind of neat – it seems to sense heat or something from your fingers, and translates that into volume control, as if it were an actual mechanical dial. No effect on the sound quality of course, but it’s a nice stylistic detail. The only downside is that it doesn’t seem to support bluetooth (at least, not out of the box, as supplied).

300 watts but it is very loud. I love how there is a seperate volume slider on the volume circle just for bass. You would be wasting your money if you purchased a bose equivalent. These are brilliant for the fraction of the price. Very stylish too and not tacky.

Honestly the best speakers i’ve ever bought. . For the price (£30 amazon prime day) these are hands down the best speakers i’ve ever bought. Amazing sound quality, they look the business and they’re solid build quality too.

Excellent, i’m quite happy. . Very nice sound quality for this size. I’m quite happy with the speakers. Bass adjustment and audio jacks on the volume knob is also great features. Volume knob itself has a thick cable, which may limit its placement.

But it was such a good deal i took the chance and bought it. I read a lot of reviews before ordering this speaker and was worried about the constant hiss that many had commented on, but it was such a good deal i took the chance and bought it. I have to say that either my hearing is impaired or others have super sensitive hearing because my speaker is excellent and i recommend them to anyone.

Speakers are great, sound quality is brilliant and they look good. Speakers are great, sound quality is brilliant and they look good. My only issue is that the cables could be a couple of feet longer as they are quite stretched placed either side of my desk.

However if its working fine then the speaker is great especially for the. The sound is fairly decent and if you’re in a room it is definitely loud enough to block out any other noise from other roomsthe aux cable works perfectly however the bluetooth is occasionally a bit iffy.

Replaced a logitech z-2300 system that cost more than twice as much. Really good sound for the money. Bought with bluetooth adapter that works surprisingly well.
