Listening to music and watching movies on our PC’s has become something we do on a daily basis, and how that sound is output is very important. The audio should be crisp, clear and undisturbed by distortions caused by speakers. The Logitech Z-4, an award winning product, promises crystal clear sound deliverance in a sleek retro design with advanced driver technology.
Sound Test List
- Staind – Right Here
- Velvet Revolver – Slither
- Gorillaz – Feel Good Inc.
- David Bowie – As the World Falls Down
So now that everything is set up and ready to go I load my music and begin my initial testing. I used several different songs with a unique tone to them, a variety of pitches and instruments, as well as vocals. When I first looked at the speakers I did wonder how the sound would be with that weird rubber over the speakers, but when I turned the music on I was impressed. The sound was perfect, it came out crisp and clear.
Happy with the results of normal volume and bass setting I crank the volume up. Full on my windows settings and on the volume dial… pure… loud… ear rattling. Yet… no distortion from the speakers what-so-ever. No crackles or fizzles, not one. They are fantastic even when it was blasting my ears into bits and rattling the windows. Perfect audio through and through.
Feel Good Inc. was fantastic in the bass test, for the bass level set at high brought out the rich deep tones in the song, with no distortion from the subwoofer or speakers.
I listened to music all day with these speakers and the sound quality just won me over. They carry sound fantastic not only when your sitting at your PC, but also when you get up and walk out of the room. Standing in my kitchen preparing some lunch I got to listen to my favorite tunes in clear audio, and gaming… loads of fun when the sound is clear and alive.
As stated earlier on the wired controller there is a plug in on the bottom for a headset and an plug-in for other music media. I didn’t get to test out the auxiliary plug-in, but I did get to test out my headphones, which worked fantastic. Plugging them in right on my desktop was so much easier than having to go around on my PC and plug them in. A handy feature for sure.
The Logitech Z-4 certainly impressed me, it is a great set, where quality and style meet with capable function, and can see why the Z series speakers have won so many awards. One can tell the quality of this set just by touching and listening to them, for seeing and hearing is believing. The sound is superb and the set itself is very stylish. My desktop certainly looked rather dull until I put these on it. And so I give the Logitech Z-4 a 9 out of 10, and an Editor’s Choice award.
The current price listed for this fantastic audio set is $129.95 CAD (About 109.45 USD) Well worth the investment. Thanks to Logitech for allowing us to review this extraordinary product!
