Review: Logitech Z213 Sound System

Follow up from my previous post.

Logitech Z213 is a 2.1 sound system which includes 2 satellites speakers and a subwoofer. This is an entry-level system that delivers quality sound across different usage be it music, movie and gaming.

Back of the subwoofer

Considering the price tag of only SGD39.90, I was very impressed by the rich bass that the subwoofer has delivered while watching music video on YouTube. Unlike other active subwoofer, the sound don’t seem to be too boomy. I guess the down-firing driver has certainly helped in spreading the bass across the room.

The compact size fits nicely on my study table. I can free up more space if I put the subwoofer on the floor but it took me a while to tidy up the wiring behind the table.

 

Although I like the rich bass that it delivers, the low power output has its limitation and this is more evident while watching your Hollywood action-packed movies. The diffused bass is pretty bad while you turn up the volume.

These days we have many entertainment contents stored in our phone. Having Bluetooth in the sound system will a big plus as it saves the hassle of plugging in and out of the 3.5mm plug. You can solve this problem by getting additional Bluetooth adaptor.  Still, I believe consumer is very willing to pay additional 10 to 20 bucks just to have Bluetooth integrated with the system.

Likes:

Cheap and reasonable sound quality that will be best use in room. It is hard to find system with such quality at that kind of price range

 

Dislikes:

Bad bass for movie and gaming given the low power output. No bluetooth and it is cumbersome to plug in and out from the 3.5mm jack if I would like to listen music stored in my phone.

 

Recommendation:

As an entry level system, it is a buy for people who is looking for simplicity that compliment with their home computer.
