"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."

These are really enjoyable. I was using higher end computer speakers at my computer, realized that I actually listen to quite a bit of music there and prefer not to use headphones. The i40's are a substantial upgrade, audiophile-grade sound and I have the flexibility to use them elsewhere as bluetooth speakers.

Tim D June 25, 2019 Intermediate Listener - 3 Years Ohio, United States

I use these speakers for movies and for PC gaming and they are perfect for both. For movie watching I have them hooked up to my Apple TV via Bluetooth. Dialogue during movies is crystal clear and environmental sounds are engrossing. I have the speakers connected via wire to my PC for games. Using the remote, it takes just one push of a button to switch between the two. Games sound excellent with very rich and realistic sounds. The highs and mids on these speakers is spot on. The lows aren’t as punchy as I like but they are more than adequate.

Bryan S. June 23, 2019 Intermediate Listener - 20+ Years California, United States

Love it, great sound, and easy set up. Keep up the good work, Fluance!

Bradley G June 22, 2019 Advanced Listener - 20+ Years Illinois, United States

Amazing bookshelf speakers. Easy pair with Bluetooth. Great value for the money.

michel June 3, 2019 Intermediate Listener - 20+ Years Quebec, Canada

J'ai acheter via Amazon and vraiment contant de la performance. Le son est riche and j'ai connecter ceux-ci avec mon ordinateur via Bluetooth donc pas de fil et j'ai pu les mettres a l'endroit ou je les voulait. La telecommande controle meme mon ordinateur (pause / play/ next). Pourquoi regarder ailleur. Fier que ce soit fait au Canada!

Luis h May 29, 2019 Audiophile - 12 Years California, United States

The bass is insane for the size of speaker they sound great. Midbass is great highs are okay. Only issue is that I do get noise from the rca when plugged in directly into my pc. Its ground loop so I doubt that its only the speakers though since they work great on bluetooth. The sound quality is so good that I'm willing to look past the noise issue.

Jack.K May 10, 2019 Advanced Listener - 7 Years Pennsylvania, United States

The quality of the speakers are out of this world for 200$. My mind was blown when I heard these speakers a because I thought, how are these 200$ and how are they making profit from this .

Ian D. May 2, 2019 Advanced Listener - 20+ Years Quebec, Canada

I have a very good set up in my living room. I was searching for something decent (no need to be powerful) for the open room (kitchen and dining room). After reading few reviews about Fluance products, I ordered the powered bookshelves ai40. What a blast!!! I broke them in for a day with soft music to soften them up from the morning to the night. The second day, I was off, so I was cooking in the kitchen and I put some jazz. I put Blue Maqams (Anouar Brahem w/Dave Holland, Jack DeJohnette and Django Bates). Wow!!! What a blast!!! A lot of details, basses are deep and realistic, no need to put it loud to hear everything.
At this price, nothing beats it. And on top, when you buy this product, it’s from Canada!!! Don’t even try to find excuses, just give it a try!

Samantha G April 25, 2019 Intermediate Listener - 16 Years British Columbia, Canada

Completely amazed at both build quality and performance of these speakers. Beautiful product that looks amazing in any room.

Chris April 2, 2019 Advanced Listener - 20+ Years California, United States

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 Advanced Listener - 20+ Years 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 Audiophile - 20+ Years 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 Advanced Listener - 20+ Years 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 Intermediate Listener - 20+ Years 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 Audiophile - 20+ Years 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.
