One of the most important things about these speakers is at first sight when you look at them you will fall in love with the contemporary design and that was one of the reasons why I bought these in the first place. The speakers are one of the most innovative product designs. HK Soundsticks were made to synergize the look of mac and they pretty well do. I own a mac air and response between the two machines is amazing. These speakers are made for each other, I have never experience the sound quality so rich that I hear all different kinds of frequency which used to get lost in my earlier purchases. The frequency response is a little bit uneven. The tweeters are all very small speakers, 1.25 inch wide, with one woofer unit. Since there are no mid-range speakers, the mid range is compromised. It is not all bad though. The best feature is great top end response from these little tweeters. Above 8K hz and 16K hz, the sound is very crisp and clear. As I generally like good meaty bass, with high crispness, that really good. The clear plastic bass unit is great to look at, Unfortunately the bass has an unnatural high spike about 120 hz. Also the output below 60 hz is virtually not there. Overall I find these speakers are really worth buying in this price segment. Yeah one more thing, after using these speakers I really don't find the need of using subtitles as the vocals and the music/background has pretty wide difference. I bought these speakers from infibeam.com.
