    Low cost, high quality materials, fantastic sound, and a customizable experience all combine to create one of the best systems money can buy right now. I cannot recommend it more, and I can’t see myself switching this speaker system out any time soon.

    Look, you can have pretty rainbow colors and every feature under the sun but if the performance and sound quality is poor, in my eyes, it's all for naught. Luckily, the KRATOS S5 absolutely pumps quality sound for music, movies, and most of all, gaming. It's compact yet completely fills my large office with solid audio.

    The Kratos S5 2.1 speaker system is an ideal audio solution for your gaming PC. It can go from detailed quiet moments to a cacophony of gunfire, roaring engines, and explosions in an instant without losing any precision. That makes it another easy recommendation.

    We love the Sound Blaster Kratos S5 for its rich wooden sound, clear mid tones and punctuated highs. The flexibility of connections is unmatched in this price range and provide multi-functionality for one price. The Kratos gave us more heart pumping gaming action that we’ve seen in years. Leave it to Sound BlasterX to roar in with a set of speakers to make you love that heart pumping gaming sensation again!

    I feel the product is worth the price and my system has been significantly upgraded to the point where I used my headset only when competitively gaming. If you are looking to upgrade your PC speakers, I would highly recommend taking a look at the Creative Kratos S5 gaming speakers.

    At this price, you’re getting a solid set of speakers with a great build quality and impressive sound. They’ll take whatever audio you throw at them and if you’re into all of the crazy lighting, they’ve got you covered there too.
