"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."

Nick, C June 5, 2020 Audiophile - 6 Years California, United States

For the money, you can't get much better. Bass struggles at low volumes b/c the woofers cover mid and low frequencies, but not an issue when you crank it up. Decent separation and clarity.

Erik j June 4, 2020 Advanced Listener - 20+ Years New Jersey, United States

The fluance ai40 R one of the best Speakers out there period...

Barclay, V May 19, 2020 Advanced Listener - 20+ Years 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 Advanced Listener - 20+ Years 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 Audiophile - 20+ Years California, United States

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

Dylan May 5, 2020 Novice Listener - 1 Year British Columbia, Canada

Very good quality sound, deep base

Chris S May 3, 2020 Advanced Listener - 10 Years 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 Intermediate Listener - 1 Year 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.

Mike J April 23, 2020 Audiophile - 15 Years Michigan, United States

Love them. I do a lot of streaming, gaming, etc. and I was looking for a solid speaker, as I have about three two channel systems and a home theater in the house. These are perfect for a desk top speaker. I put them on a 9" speaker stand and it's the ideal height.

john April 23, 2020 Audiophile - 6 Years Texas, United States

Got them brand new and didn't work since day one..piece of trash don't buy .didn't even work the first day I got them

Jacob R April 19, 2020 Intermediate Listener - 10 Years 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 Intermediate Listener - 15 Years 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 Advanced Listener - 20+ Years 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 Advanced Listener - 1 Year 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 Intermediate Listener - 10 Years 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.
