halfway point to be the sweet spot for me, though I could crank it to full volume without any detectable distortion.
The sound quality was more disappointing. The speakers tended to flatten whatever dynamics a recording had no matter what I listened to. The absence of a woofer also meant that although a song’s bass was clear it had virtually no oomph. I found the sound quality could be modestly improved using equalization software, but generally speaking every track I played through these sounded just as lackluster as it did coming out of my PC speakers, only louder.
