Volume is important. I feel sorry for your friends that have to listen to 1 mm drivers instead of that 18 inch subwoofer at the house party.

Frequency response listed by any reputable company is done ±3dB, which means that across the listed range there is only a deviation of 3dB either louder or quieter. For example, my JBL HLS610 (1x 6") are rated 55Hz - 20kHz ±3dB. Yes they can physically put out down to 20Hz, but there's such a huge loss of output that it's practically inaudible.

And bringing up IEMs it just plain stupid. IEMs or headphones, despite having drivers, don't function the same as freestanding speakers. Take them out of your ears and hold them 1m away from a calibration mic. I bet it won't do anything below 500Hz ±3dB.

Oh, and if you think the ±3dB condition is dumb, then read this.

The design seems to be form over function. Apparently there are people that will buy audio equipment because the look appeals to them rather than the audio quality. They still look horrible to me.

feel free to call me told, but none of that makes the speakers any good.

For $60 and a 1 inch driver that is actually a decent sound range. You are a complete fool if you expect any real bass out of a portable system such as these and expect to be let down for the rest of your life. If you want super small speakers that sound amazing then go buy a set of Gallo Sphere's. Expect to spend an arm, leg, and first born child as they can run well over $2,000 for a set.

Please keep your arrogant and terrible comments to yourself. At least they are trying to offer a decent product to the mobile community.

Edit : Good lord man do some research before you speak. I have read your other posts and you know nothing about audio equipment (comparing, adequate frequencies, etc.) Most speakers CAN produce sounds down to 20hz. The issue is how well they can do it and at what volume. Quality of audio is also highly subjective. What is good to you may be terrible to others. I have personaly tuned systems that cost over $35,000 for just the speakers, sub, amp and receiver. If you do not have the ear for equipment of that caliber it will sound no different then a system costing you $1,000.
