Wherever you hang, your music and movies follow! At just three-inches square they’re personal and portable, ideal for home, on your desk or on the go! Available in brilliant fashion-forward colors they look as fabulous as they sound on custom brushed aluminum stands. It’s one look and “I want them!”
You’re gonna love their small sleek footprint, iconic design and big dynamic sound; they create a wide stereo image so everyone can enjoy music and video! Just plug the speaker with the USB connector into your computer’s USB port and you’re ready to roll! UCubes... for U
We designed UCubes with equal parts science and art. DSP-controlled power supplies and DSP-equalized signals for the very special BMR Balanced Mode Radiator driver deliver an astounding 170 degrees of stereo image so everyone can enjoy the experience. UCubes are artful too; their gorgeous custom aluminum stands put them at just the right angle for listening, and their smooth, shiny surfaces and beautifully curved sides look iconic, elegant and awesome!
Plug 'n Play
All-USB signal and power delivers vastly improved sound and supreme portability with a minimum of cabling and no external power supply. Connect the speakers with the cable provided, then plug the left speaker into your computer’s USB port and you’re ready for music, movies or video wherever you are. UCubes will in most cases self-install, but if not check the UCube Tech Zone!
Digital Signal Processing
While USB ports are limited to 5 volts UCubes’ “smart” DSP-controlled power supplies store energy during quiet passages allowing the class-D amplifier to reach a full 15W equivalent power output for clean, dynamic sound that won’t break up when you pump up the volume. The audio signal is also DSP-equalized to perfectly match the UCube’s special BMR driver and enclosure there’s no need for a crossover.
The advanced-design BMR Balanced Mode Radiator is a full-range, flat-diaphragm driver that delivers vastly improved off-axis response of up to 170 degrees, true room filling sound. Casually place UCubes wherever convenient, or place them both sides and equidistant from your computer facing straight ahead, then slowly turn them in towards you. Find just the right balance between their awesome focus and the positively huge listening area. You’ll be surprised to hear that the sound doesn’t come from the speakers but from the space around them!
high is a bit harsh, mid is a bit mud and bass is a bit thin
sure you can't expect too much for such size but it does delivers quite a sound pressure though it's extracting power from usb 2.0, more than enough if you're listening at close distance.
easily positioned as well. The BMR drivers do project sound equally and evenly at wide angle, so they're not picky in positioning, really could place wherever you want
though my first sentence sounds negative, I actually quite like them for casual listening (I'm a violinist playing in a few orchestras for many years so I listen to classical a lot, all other kinds of music as well. A very serious listener I'd consider myself. I also own ER4 and K240s)
but for that price I guess I'll look for the similar ones from Cambridge Audio as well
