But a few insist they will never use them for bluetooth music streaming because, as we all know, bluetooth (even with aptx) sti...  Read More

I’m pleased with the quality and performance of the speakers.

This is bass in quality, not quantity.

This is just unacceptable functionality and a shame since the dac is of pretty ok quality.

A few reviewers have said otherwise, that the quality of bluetooth music from the hd3s is actually quite good.

The output quality is that good and my concerns are few given my experience with class a and a/b designs.


They responded quickly with a pre-paid shipping label to send the speakers to them, and cross-shipped a new set to me the next ...  Read More


The packaging it came it was pretty high quality too, with nice little sacks to hold the speakers.

Audioengine does a good job on packaging their products, speakers/cables inside the box are protected by microfiber bags, and a...  Read More

I got them hooked up in about three minutes and played the same track i'd just been listening to on the a2s.


This is my first time buying an audioengine product.

I swapped to these from the larger audioengine a5+ and i much prefer these, particularly in a small area for nearfield use at a desk.

I did so choose, and paired them with a 10-inch sub that i recently retired from my home theater setup.

If you want better performance you can use an external dac (i'm using a schiit modi multibit / schiit vali headphone amp).

    The bass isn't that much but good enough for near-field listening, ambient sound in games feels more alive, immersive, you can tell where the sounds come from.

    People having audio input delay via usb is never a problem to me, maybe audioengine fixed that already for their later ones.

    If you're looking for back teeth rattling rock and roll sound, better go somewhere else.

    The first pair of these i got worked for about an hour, then the left speaker cut out and stopped making any sound.

    However, i found that using the speaker's built-in crossover left them feeling somewhat disjointed from the sub, probably because sounds above 80hz are localizable, so that range of sounds between 80 and 100hz was audibly coming from a different location than the speakers.

    In the end, though, i decided that audioengine's customer service earned them that star back.
