The SBS250 speakers are very much aimed at the entry-level market, priced
at only £14.99. What do we get for this sort of money? Well, lets first
take a look at the aesthetics of these speakers first..
With their matte black finish and general stylish shape, these will look
good next to most PC's.
A headphone jack on the front makes it easy to plug in headphones
so you don't disturb people - although with a lowly 2.5watts RMS, disturbing
people might be a little difficult. These speakers are amplified through the
use of a 9v DC adapter. Luckily, these speakers are magnetically shielded
- so your monitor is safe from interference.
This 2-speaker setup uses the standard 3.5mm jack that most
PC speakers use, but there is nothing stopping them from being used with a
CD or MP3 player. There is a nice length of cable between speakers, around
Using the SBS250 speakers, bass response was not too bad at
all due to the inclusion of rear-bass ports. But in general I found songs
lost the warmth I was used to with my DTT3500's. It was more tinny, losing
the mid-range tones and carrying too much on the top. It couldn't handle the
crash of the cymbals very well.
These speakers will suffice for anyone who just needs a cheap
pair of speakers for occasional music listening and multimedia use. They aren't
anything particular special at all. But at £14.99 and with a pretty
sleek look - you can't argue.
