Great Speakers - Sound Quality, Clarity and Detail Meet Expectations

Not likely to find a better sounding speaker for the price.

Customer service is excellent. A brief on my experience:

Purchased speakers through Amazon and left them unopened for 30+ days. After setup, there was no sound from the left speaker. I contacted Fluance, they agreed to return both speakers and Fluance paid return shipping. New (replacement) speakers have been working as expected and I am happy customer that will return to Fluance products.


Why 4 stars? Nothing and no one is perfect.


Bob C. March 29, 2019 Nebraska, United States

Love it. Haven't had time to give them a good workout yet, but what I've heard so far is very impressive!

Tom S March 29, 2019 Utah, United States

I had not planned to getting these but I decided to try them out for the 30 day trial. The bamboo cabinet and white face is a very attractive look.

These are for my bedroom where I listen to music playlists from my phone all night long.
I compared these to my existing Bluetooth speakers. While the Ai40's are 2½ times the price of my existing pair, it probably isn't a fair comparison. The bass on the Ai40's was different, better, tighter, satisfying, almost boomy at times but not really. I don't know the adjectives to describe it. The difference is dependent on how each tracks recording was engineered. Some the tracks low end was dramatic, others weren't.

It was difficult to get an exact a/b comparison since I had to stop, un-pair and re-pair, then play. The Ai40's bass response is what sold me. If I don't keep these I will try the Ai60's since I changed my mind and wanted them but the Ai40's had already shipped. Fluance makes quite a broad line of products. I might be trying/buying other equipment from them in my future.

Paulg March 27, 2019 Washington, United States

I found that these speakers just plain get it right. The bass is tight and doesnt crowd the Mid range, which is where most of the magic happens in my music. Its just an amazing speaker for the price.

Timothy March 20, 2019 Florida, United States

The ai40's are awesome speakers. The sound is very good nice equalization the build quality is great l ordered the lucky bamboo with white face looks beautiful. I did order a thicker speaker wire just because it had banana plugs pre attached the wire that comes with the speakers works fine and the remote functions well. All in all l am very happy with my purchase and will buy from Fluance again.

Charlie K March 8, 2019 California, United States

I purchased these for a bedroom, to pair with my Lenovo Smart display. The bamboo finish on the speakers match the Lenovo's bamboo finish perfectly. The only problem is that the Lenovo lacks the ability to pair with external Bluetooth devices. I didn't know that until I tried to set it up. The speakers are outstanding for the price/size. Great low end for a small driver in a sealed cabinet. Very impressed.

Jeremy February 24, 2019 Illinois, United States

These speakers have met my expectations both with looks and sound quality. The bluetooth feature is really great as that allows me to have more options with music playback. I really love the white fronts of these speakers. They provide a great finish that is bright and light.

Stacy Bensa February 13, 2019 Quebec, Canada

Simply Amazing !! After watching two excellent reviews about Fluance Ai40 speakers, I decided to give it a try. OMG! I was blown away by the deepness of the sound and clear high pitch) that came out of these speakers. At that price, no other can even compete! I'm actually keeping myself from buying another pair for the living room to replace my 600$ Samsung Bluetooth speakers. Not only they look good, but they fill out the room perfectly. If you're thinking about buying a sound bar, you should definitely consider giving these a try. For all other music lovers, you could add an equalizer for more control, but for the normal human like me, you will be craving for them. GOOD JOB FLUANCE! I didn't know you guys, but now, you are on my top list! Fast delivery, great product, low price, man... you got me :)

Andrew D January 26, 2019 Michigan, United States

The white and bamboo speakers have such great sound and bass and also look fantastic. There is that break in period which is well noted. Can’t beat the price.

Chris D January 24, 2019 California, United States

The speakers sound great, especially for the price! Build quality seems excellent. The bamboo and white enclosure is gorgeous.

Tom January 7, 2019 Saskatchewan, Canada

Excellent highs and mids. Could use a sub out for extended bass. Excellent Bluetooth range. Great value for the price.

Nomel P. January 7, 2019 Ontario, Canada

These speakers sound great. Minimalistic approach. Not too boomy but bass is definitely there. I didn't have any problem connecting it to different bluetooth devices. They are currently connected on my TV, loved them!

These babies arrived at my front door earlier than expected ETA on tracking website. Well packaged. I'd wish the courier had rang the door bell instead of just dropping off the package. (not Fluance fault)

Peter Y January 1, 2019 California, United States

Awesome set of speakers right out of the box. I was surprised by the quality of sound coming out of speakers at this price point. Excellent highs and lows.

Steve A January 1, 2019 British Columbia, Canada

Very pleased with these speakers so far. Have them hooked directly to an Audio-Technica AT-LP60 for vinyl listening, and paired with my MacBook Pro via Bluetooth for streaming audio.

Bluetooth pairing was instant and remains reliable. My small collection of vinyl sounds fantastic, and I cannot wait to try all sorts of new and old LPs through these speakers.

These speakers look amazing in bamboo with white fronts. Build quality is second-to-none, and the included speaker wire is perfect.

One surprising feature that has been really handy is the ability to use the remote to pause and skip the Bluetooth source.

In all, really happy with these, and I'm pleased to support a Canadian company making quality products!

Jonny B December 31, 2018 Idaho, United States

Initially received a defective set of speakers and returned them. Fluance went above and beyond what I would of expected. The speakers sound great and having the built in DAC is awesome in instances you need or want a smaller setup with minimal fuss with amazing sound quality. Bluetooth feature works as advertised as well. Amazing speakers from an amazing company.
