PC Speaker System Final Thoughts
If I was looking for a PC speaker system and price was a driving force, I would have the Alienvibes W401 PC Speaker System at the top of my list. It is a stunning system that combines good looks, good price and impressive performance in a well-rounded package.
Each of the components will stand alone as a great addition to your space. When combined you just feel that is like an art exhibit. This system makes the most out of the 2 larger woofers and the 2 3 inch cones in the satellites. The highs are very crisp - one song I was playing has a set of chimes ringing at one point and everyone in the room just froze it was so clear. The bass module puts out a very satisfying thundering when cranked up.
The whole unit is solidly built and should last a long time. Even the packaging was sturdy and all the components arrived looking bright and shiny. Certainly it was extremely easy to set up and had me cranking out the music in no time at all.
All in all I would say that the Alienvibes W410 Speaker System is a great value for the money.
Ineo Alienvibes W401 Conclusion
At just under $90 the Alienvibes W401 2.2 Channel PC Speaker System is a great buy. It has great looks and good performance. The sound it generates is full bodied and has satisfying.
I tested the performance on many fronts. The Alienvibes W401 had solid performance across most of the audio generating environment. It has very crisp and accurate highs due to the 1 and 3 inch speakers and solid speaker construction. The bass in extremely solid. If you are looking for something to shake the room and maximize the discomfort of others in your residence this is it. Not so much when listening to classical or music that depends on the midlevel audio to create an effect, but honestly this is not why you are buying this system. It is to play games and let it rip every now and then
I love the look of the Alienvibes W401 PC Speaker System. The liquid black front offset by the silver coated speaker cones is eye catching and also lets people know this system is ready to play. The controls have been integrated into the design extremely well and merge seamlessly with the overall design.
The Alienvibes W401 system is constructed to be very sturdy. It has wood where wood makes sense and the solid plastic front pieces give strength and good looks. You can tell that the quality of this build is very good for a unit costing less than $90.
Simple. That is what I would like to say about the functionality. There is no messing around to figure out how to do this or that. You want volume - turn it up. Bass and Treble controls are front and centre. It is nice to have this honest, low tech interface. You can sit back and relax without trying to figure out menus and sub-menus.
For a price point less than $90 (Amazon), the Ineo Alienvibes W401 is a very good value for money. You can use it for gaming, general music listening, and hammering the bass off the walls of your room.
+ Great looking speaker system
- Midrange a bit flat
