"They get more than loud enough, it's a super flat frequency response... I don't know what else you can ask for when it comes to speakers, for me, these are the holy grail when it comes to speakers."

Barclay, V May 19, 2020 Arizona, United States

These speakers look and sound fantastic: tight, crisp bass with great channel separation and a soundstage is most definitely created!

John K May 14, 2020 Illinois, United States

First Fluance purchase. I think they are very nice looking speakers, solidly built, great sound for the money. Much better sound than soundbar, they really improve the TV sound with a much bigger soundstage. They Rock! my vintage CD collection. Play quite loud for little speakers without a subwoofer.

Sean B May 5, 2020 California, United States

Great speakers for the $. Very good sound and quality build. Bluetooth could have better range.

Dylan May 5, 2020 British Columbia, Canada

Very good quality sound, deep base

Chris S May 3, 2020 Virginia, United States

Wow, these sound amazing! So glad I decided to spend a little more to upgrade from my pair of Edifier speakers. As an added bonus they also connect to my phone via bluetooth.

Cameron E April 29, 2020 Ontario, Canada

I love these speakers!
I have them hooked up via Bluetooth to an AppleTV and RCA to a turntable and the sound they put out on both inputs is incredible.
Not only do they sound great they look gorgeous!
For this price I regret not buying them sooner.

Jacob R April 19, 2020 California, United States

I can't believe these are only $200, but can push out such incredible sound. I just listened to Alabama Shakes 2nd album Sound and Color which an amazingly well-produced album and these speakers did it justice. Full, vibrant, warm and deep. Perfect bookshelf speakers and they look amazing too. Makes me smile every time I use them.

Josh B April 8, 2020 Kentucky, United States

I ordered these based on online reviews. I am very satisfied with these speakers. Plenty enough sound to fill a larger room. Great all range speakers. Cannot best for the price.

Chuck K April 4, 2020 North Carolina, United States

Love my Ai40's. The highs are clear, voices sound fabulous, and for the size, the bass is great. The overall sound is well balanced,warm, and natural. I love the small size. They are fantastic in the kitchen or used as a sound bar in my den, and they are powerful enough to fill my living room with sound. I use them for jazz, classical, Broadway, and '60s & '70s rock. The fullness, the natural sound, and the warmth of these speakers goes beyond anything I could imagine from speakers this size at this price.

Thurman C March 26, 2020 Texas, United States

My sister-in-law performed the planning for my daughter's wedding and made it the best day of her life! I gave her these speakers as a thank you gift. She loves them!

Benjamin March 7, 2020 New Hampshire, United States

They sound good but it doesn't matter with the Bluetooth as unreliable as it is. Most of the time I can't connect to it, from Mac, from Windows, from anywhere.

Look somewhere else. It isn't worth the gamble.

Martha C February 5, 2020 Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada

Beautiful sharp looking speakers, haven't broken them in yet at a moderate level but will soon. From what I've heard from them so far I think they are awesome, hookup was pretty straightforward and the remote is a nice bonus! I have them hooked up to the Fluance RT80 turntable via RCA and also paired them with my IPod without any issues. I can report NO hissing or pops as some other reviewers have. I love the bluetooth capability as they will later be paired with a smart TV when our basement renos are completed. I didn't buy these on Amazon, ordered these directly from Fluance where shipping was pretty fast.

Thomas W January 29, 2020 British Columbia, Canada

I ordered a pair on Amazon. I was very excited to get these after hearing all the great reviews. I got the Ai40's to use on my desktop with my PC. Unfortunately the ones I got where defective. There was a very loud hissing and crackling noise, it was not drown out by the music either, it was very much in your face. I tried several different high quality connectors and different audio sources, nothing stopped this noise. After working with tech support who was by the way very helpful and easy to deal with it was determined that the power supply may be faulty. After I got off the phone I realized that there was even more wrong with these speakers. The speakers sounded blown and the volume output was very low. They where a complete dud, I think the quality control department needs to be re evaluated. I am awaiting a refund and planned to get another and see how it goes but after hearing that so many people have this hissing some worse than others I may look for something else. I have to sleep on it and re think my purchase choice. I have had 2 different sets of quality desktop monitor style speakers none caused any sort of hissing or noise and where silent even at full volume or you could not hear anything over the PC fans. With the Ai40's the hissing is so loud it drowns out the sound of the PC fans and cuts into the music.
Very disappointing as I had high hopes for these speakers.

Paul H January 14, 2020 Quebec, Canada

Beautiful sound and appearance. I'm hearing the whole production now and not just some static and background noise.

Steve G January 8, 2020 Quebec, Canada

It is so much good and at so killer price for the performance (overall articulation, low bass and ease of use), that I bought a second pair. Forget any sound bars or anything below 500$. This is really it and nothing else.
