Truely amazing little speakers!,
This review is from: Razer Ferox Mobile PC Gaming Speakers (Personal Computers)I ordered these little speakers yesterday and got them today when I asked for two day shipping! I was ecstatic to say the least. I had been planning to buy these for months from the actual razerstore website but when I had tried the site was having an error so I came here and I'm so pleased that I did. The product is amazing. I'm a gamer, maybe not a hardcore shoot'em up gamer but I'm still a gamer and I've been slowly buying razer for looks and function. I love the way these speakers look and they function just fine now that I've read through some of the other reviews. I popped open the packaging and skim read the little foldout book they give you on how to hook up and what the colored lights are at the bottom of the speakers [which I didn't know where there until I bought them]. I hooked up the mini USB's to both speakers and then hooked up the jack and USB to my keyboard's little opens. I put on some music with a little base and let them loose only to be severely disappointed at... Read more
This review is from: Razer Ferox Mobile PC Gaming Speakers (Personal Computers)I absolutely love these speakers!! My son bought these several years back for our desktop computer for his "gaming". These are just the best sounding and functional speakers I have ever used. Instead of having to mute the computer, you can just close the speaker by pushing it down. So much easier than finding a knob to turn it off or using the mouse to mute it. It's instant. When a video starts playing automatically and you don't want to hear it? Just push down the speaker(s). I recently ordered another set for a group that I sing with. We sometimes use a split-track with voices on one side and instrumentation on the other. To get it to play split, we would have go through a cd player and receiver. Now, i can just copy my split track to my Iphone and play it through these speakers. When I want to take off the voices, I just close one of the speakers. Works great! It's even loud enough to use for a small venue performance. Like I said earlier, my son bought the... Read more
A bit overpriced, not great sound, but better than laptop speakers...,
This review is from: Razer Ferox Mobile PC Gaming Speakers (Personal Computers)Okay, these are louder than your laptop speakers, however they don't sound very good. They are adequate, but overpriced considering the quality of the audio and the competition out there.
This might be specific to the set I got ---> You have to push the top down to turn them on, one of the speakers I got has a crooked lid that never really looks closed. Also, one of the speakers makes a popping noise every time you close it, it actually sounds like a pop from the speaker not from the materials rubbing or clipping.
There are blue lights that light up at the base of the speakers, but they are flashing almost all the time which I find super annoying, its like a slow strobe light going off while I'm trying to pay attention to the screen, I wish they didn't exist.
These speakers have batteries built in which is completely unnecessary as I will never use these not attached to USB for power, so I'm not sure why that is even a feature of these speakers... Read more
