Corsair Gaming Audio Series SP2500 Review, Serious Speakers
If your reading this then you are likely looking to buy a high end PC speaker system that not only lives up to the hype but justifies that over $200 price tag. While these speakers are geared towards gamers they should do the job for any other audio task including music, movies, and much more.
If gaming is your primary activity on the PC and you are really serious about just gaming then I suggest a headset such as the HyperX Cloud II Gaming Headset with virtual 7.1 surround sound.
Either way you can buy speakers as well as a headset but if you can only get one and want speakers then that is a fine choice as they are more versatile. Today I am going to help you decide whether or not this speaker set is a good fit or a bad fit for you. SO without further ado…

Product: Corsair Gaming Audio Series SP2500 High-Power 2.1 PC Speaker System
Cheapest Place to Buy: Amazon.com
My Personal Ranking: 92/100
So I know and can tell you that Corsair has made some pretty quality products over the years. Some of the things you are going to want to know about the SP2500 are: How is the overall sound quality? How much / how good is the bass? and Are these speakers worth the price tag? Why are they better then some of the lower end PC gaming speakers out there? I will do my best to go over the features and all the jazzy gizmos this speaker set has to offer and then answer those questions.
2.1 Satellite Speakers and Subwoofer
Your getting 2 satellite speakers that each contain a 1 inch tweeter and 3 inch mid range. These utilize the digital bi-amplification technology Corsair has developed which generates great performance. Each has a 6 foot cable so you can place them as you please around your PC.
To pair with the satellites is an 8 inch subwoofer made with quality rubber in a side mounted box designed for thumping hard. All in all we are looking at a total of 232 watts or awesomesauce and carnage. In other words… not too bad of sound. haha
The Controls On This Honey Make It Even Sweeter
There are lots of control options the first of which being the ability to switch between preset equalization curves. Like you have seen before this will automatically adjust the highs and lows depending on the mode you switch to. Of course this will allow you to easily switch to game mode or pick different setting depending on what kind of music you are listening to.
ModX is another option you can enable and is great for enhancing your Blu-ray and DVD experience.
One of the cool but lesser knows things you can do with the Corsair SP2500 is to set it into quiet or night mode. This will automatically transfer a lot of the bass sounds to the satellite speakers so your family and/or neighbors wont be disturbed. Pretty nice.
Alright so I threw out these questions in the beginning of this article… lets get to them. As far as the sound quality goes these babies will compete with any 2.1 system out there. The highs are great, the mids are cool, and the subwoofer kicks like a football player(either type). The possibilities are endless.
Imagine the volume is cranked up on Battlefield Hardline, bullets whizzing past your head, team mates going down left and right, then suddenly a mortar drops near you taking out your buddy to the left and not only do you hear it and see it but you feel it.
You won’t experience distortion, static or interference at virtually any sound level which like I said earlier is great for gaming especially and really good for cranking up those tunes.
Normally I kind of throw this topic into the end of an article very briefly but for these speakers I wanted more real estate. The truth of the matter is that this speaker set is top of the line. With top of the line comes top of the line pricing.
Now is $239.99 out of line? My answer would be a simple: No. If you are looking at buying these computer speakers then you are a person who likes quality. Top notch. You are more worried about sound quality and game experience then dollar signs. You like to pay a couple bucks extra to get a product that is going to last you a long time. Am I right? Is this speaker set for you?
Here’s what I think and first of all thank you for reading my Corsair Gaming Audio Series SP2500 Review up till now! If you got the scratch for this PC speaker set then by all means get it. I do not think you will be disappointed at all with the quality of sound you are getting. If you are using them just for gaming or perhaps for your entire multimedia setup (at your computer) they should work for you. Of course at the end of the day only you can decide but I hope I helped you make the decision. That’s why I’m here!
So I gotta know your thoughts on this speak set? Are you planning on making the plunge? If you have any questions or comments please feel free to drop me one anytime at the bottom of this page. Likes, shares, tweets and +1’s are greatly appreciated as well.
