    "literally blown away"
    Wow, must be seriously powerful to actually loft your entire body off the ground

  2. Blaster118 on July 25, 2020 at 8:21 pm

    This made me get the creative A250s and I love them! The bass is just the best, it even adds to music you don’t think they would because of drums, it’s great in gaming, when I listened to my old 2.0 speaker system again it sounded like I was listening through a tin can! It may be because I’ve dropped them a few times but the sound quality is on par with my $100 Arctis 5 headphones, and I sometimes prefer listening to music on my speakers instead of headphones!

  3. Dev Shah on July 25, 2020 at 8:22 pm

    Logitech Z200 costs 180$ on amazon india -_-

  4. MrSuperStarGr on July 25, 2020 at 8:23 pm

    i did buy the a250s and they are AMAZING they are loud clear and the bass is out of this world for the price . i had friends when i plugged them for the first time and even they where blowin away and they where like are you sure they are 30 euros only ?

  5. karabo Tshehla on July 25, 2020 at 8:23 pm

    I have the creative a250 2.1 n I want to upgrade to 5.1,so I dnt know which to choose between trust vigor 5.1 and logitech z607.pls help

  6. vidisNE on July 25, 2020 at 8:26 pm

    "Testing …" – 😀 😀 so… where is testing? 😀

  7. chopiz063 on July 25, 2020 at 8:26 pm

    We require V2 of this! Please

  8. he's the Master on July 25, 2020 at 8:27 pm

    The Z200 speakers could be used to replace horrible HDTV speakers.

  9. bugs bunny on July 25, 2020 at 8:27 pm

    i have all of those speakers and more…but my rosewill 2.5 speakers are far superior to all of them and there isn’t a single review anywhere :)…they do still make a 2.5 speaker set but there different idk if there as good as there old ones

  10. Ian on July 25, 2020 at 8:28 pm

    How do I switch between my headset to my speakers seamlessly?

  11. Milton Waddams on July 25, 2020 at 8:29 pm

    Left out Edifier which seems to offer better quality for the same price. Logitech crap dies early and even when it works, it’s not great.

  12. Spase Mumky on July 25, 2020 at 8:29 pm

    who the fuck would want a dedicated subwoofer on thier desk it looks like ass

  13. E. Stark on July 25, 2020 at 8:33 pm

    The Creative A250 do NOT have tweeters.

  14. FPS on July 25, 2020 at 8:33 pm

    Pls do a 2020 update

  15. David Boggs on July 25, 2020 at 8:36 pm

    I don’t like systems with subs. I feel like their is too much of a seperation from the sound as a whole.
    I prefer nice, powerful drivers doing it all.

  16. Neophobic Nyctophile on July 25, 2020 at 8:40 pm

    Wish I already had speakers so I could hear this…

  17. JDubz on July 25, 2020 at 8:40 pm

    what kind of port do the cyber acoustics go into

  18. Bryce Dayton on July 25, 2020 at 8:41 pm

    Love my A250s. People are always impressed when the come over and watch movies.

  19. Kyle avery on July 25, 2020 at 8:41 pm

    Geez, the creatives are now $65-$90

  20. Tobbe on July 25, 2020 at 8:45 pm

    I would just go with z333

  21. JohnSams on July 25, 2020 at 8:45 pm

    Creative’s are the best, they did make one of the first real sound card after all.

  22. DEEDS_NOT__WORDS on July 25, 2020 at 8:45 pm

    Wow I’m conveniently watching this a year after upload

  23. ethan nielsen on July 25, 2020 at 8:47 pm

    imagine not doing a sound test

  24. 426 SUPER BEE on July 25, 2020 at 8:48 pm

    just get a stereo system be done with it. A computer will handle any thing you put on it

  25. Pakistan Cricket on July 25, 2020 at 8:50 pm

    Can I just say the tone and sound of your voice is really good it’s so calming and your it doesn’t sound as if you’re shouting.

    (Sorry if that’s a little weird)

  26. Fred Blair on July 25, 2020 at 8:50 pm

    I like your voice, relaxed but not lazy, you have a good energy balance

  27. Rohat KAYA on July 25, 2020 at 8:50 pm

    My english is bad. Which is the best quality sound?

  28. Quettesh on July 25, 2020 at 8:53 pm

    I’m looking for budget 2.1 speakers and what do I find, a review from someone who actually know what he is taking about and not just a random John reading the box marketing material.

  29. alxnd_r on July 25, 2020 at 8:53 pm

    Just buy some used system. Logitech z3 is like 30$ and its much better than 100$ Razer Nommo. MUCH BETTER.
    Or buy some wooden satelites from genius 5.1 systems that are atleast 15w each but they have real tweeters and when you connect them to a sub they will give better sound than most 50-100$ systems for 3x less money.

  30. Rich Espiritu on July 25, 2020 at 8:54 pm

    Watching this, then forgot I have no speakers

  31. CARLOS on July 25, 2020 at 8:55 pm

  32. Melvin The Rooster on July 25, 2020 at 8:59 pm

    4:50 i have that sub woofer and it is killer, it vibrates my floor at max volume… surprised i havent blown it yet lol

  33. Hyf5 on July 25, 2020 at 9:00 pm

    i bought my creative a250 back in like 2016 and it was a huge upgrade from my crappy tv speakers. i still use them to this day and i couldn’t be happier with them.

  34. Dylan Richards on July 25, 2020 at 9:01 pm

    Now the question is … Creative A250 or Pebble Plus? There is a £7 difference right now.

  35. Quettesh on July 25, 2020 at 9:05 pm

    I just bought A250 and I am really surprised how they sound. I use them in ~12m^2 room and they get loud more than needed. I wanted tu buy Logitech Z333 but they are really huge in comparison and the reason for that is that they have fake tweeter. They are more powerful with better connectivity, but the size is just too unnecessary. Not mentioning that A250 are sold for much less. I was worried that they are plastic speakers, but they somehow managed to get rid of the plastic resonating sound which plagues cheep plastic speakers.

  36. Alek on July 25, 2020 at 9:06 pm

    My Z200’s died in 9 days 🙁

  37. Lowlife on July 25, 2020 at 9:07 pm

    Why do wish adds exist

  38. TheChosenOne on July 25, 2020 at 9:07 pm

    Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 is a little on the pricey side but I’ve never needed anything else and it doubles as a homes theater. The speakers mentioned on this video are all decent. I’d say, get the $20 ones and save up for something with a sub, like the ones I have or the z906. Whoa…I know, expensive but you won’t need anything else until you buy your first house.

  39. fleemos on July 25, 2020 at 9:08 pm

    Thanks for this review. Most reviewers leave the people with limited funds out of the scope of their reviews. I’m picking up an A250 soon now that I found this great review looking for more info on the Z200.

  40. Kind Old Raven on July 25, 2020 at 9:09 pm

    The a250s are like 32 bucks right now. That’s… pretty damn cheap.

  41. Rainbow Cookie on July 25, 2020 at 9:09 pm

    creative a250 is the best speakers i had i realy reccommend them

  42. L Monty on July 25, 2020 at 9:09 pm

    6:18 Rest in peace. 😇

  43. The Emo Emu on July 25, 2020 at 9:11 pm

    $20 isn’t affordable. It’s broke ass.

  44. Initrox on July 25, 2020 at 9:14 pm

    How do you set up a subwoofer for gaming?!!? Above the monitor?

  45. Ross Kelly on July 25, 2020 at 9:15 pm

    Off topic, but you have a great voice, articulation and friendly, confident narration/delivery.
    This almost qualifies in the category of "accidental ASMR" -… almost.
    But you could have so many future paths you could take; more of this, or more conventional radio and TV, audiobook narration, or"voice over" to documentaries, etc, etc.
    Not to mention teaching in all its guises.
    Just saying:)

  46. Coletta Hughes on July 25, 2020 at 9:15 pm

    Well made commercial, not that I’m in the market for a cooling fan, but it was still clever and non corporate sounding… So I let it play through. Hey sponsor give this YouTuber another fish head and bowel of rice lol :p

  47. Chocolate Gutiar on July 25, 2020 at 9:17 pm

    Anythings affordable when you got the money

  48. Ian on July 25, 2020 at 9:18 pm

    How do I switch between my headset to my speakers seamlessly?

  49. Kevin Schaefer on July 25, 2020 at 9:18 pm

    Where did you find the Logitec Z200 for $20?

  50. Dudeless on July 25, 2020 at 9:18 pm

    creative pebble or creative a250?
