Are the Logitech Z-5500 speakers any good? What about the Creative GigaWorks G500?

Z-5500's are awesome! I can't say anything about much else, I've had my Z-5500's for at least 4 years now. They have very good sound quality and major bass and even better when matched with a good sound card and configuration.

+1 hard to beat.

Thanks for the feedback. :)

However, anyone heard the Creative GigaWorks G500 speakers? How do they compare to the Logitech Z-5500?

I have heard of them, they are very close to the 5550s in everything but price. For the money you can't be the logitech's.

Logitech and klipsch systems are entry level..

since no price tag requirements have been mentioned:

that's their cheap set. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v212/fastredponycar/forums/smilies/cry.gif

But considering how long we keep speakers (they really don't get obsolete) and the fact that sweetwater has a nice no strings attached 3 payment plan. The price tag isn't really that absurd.

So no only will your explosions and gunfire in games sound good, your music will actually sound good as well (which the logitechs aren't really engineered to do)


Even my much cheaper Adam A7 monitors sound much better in games than my 5500 system (that my brother now uses) as well as my klipsch pro media 2.1 setup hooked up to my wife's system.

I'd take a nice 2.1 setup over a lesser quality 5.1/7.1 system any day.
