What customers say about "Size & Weight"
KEF Q150 Bookshelf Speakers (Pair, Black)
  • These are very impressive for their size. The base output is much stronger than expected.
  • They are small and they are basic and lightweight overall.
  • They are bigger than they look because these speakers are very deep.
  • These speakers are much bigger than I had in mind. They're too big to be used as desktop computer speakers which is what I bought them for.
  • Build quality is solid and heavy. I was upset because of their heavy weight.
Klipsch RP-150M Bookshelf Speaker - Ebony (Pair)
  • I am completely blown away by the quality of the sound that comes from these very small speakers.
  • What I do know is that these little speakers punch above their weight class.
  • You can NEVER go wrong with Klipsch. They didn’t skimp on a thing when they made these awesome bookshelf-size speakers.
  • I am impressed with the bass these little book shelfs make.
  • Klipsch still provides "big" sound in small package for fair price.

What customers say about "Audio"
KEF Q150 Bookshelf Speakers (Pair, Black)
  • I was actually surprised at how good these speakers sounded. The sound quality is impressive. They sound very clear. The highs sound perfect.
  • The speakers are rear force and distance to the wall behind is a determining factor in the lowland sound. The mid-range and highs are excellent.
  • The highs are crisp and crystal clear. The mids are clear and warm. Then there's the bass.
  • The sound if very clear through the whole spectrum with the sweet spot in the upper mids. Soundstage and imaging are fantastic and doesn't sound overly bright.
  • It lacks deep bass and really doesn't handle them well.
Klipsch RP-150M Bookshelf Speaker - Ebony (Pair)
  • These speakers light up the room. They are powerful, deep, clear and are classically what everyone is looking for when they think, "I want the best sound money can buy." No complaints.
  • The highs and mids are unbelievably clean and clear. The bass is rich, full and punchy.
  • No matter the volume level or type of music these speakers deliver spectacular sound.
  • This speakers are still blowing me out of the water. Perfect for listening to music, movies, or general TV.
  • These speakers sound pretty good to me and far better than the minipods that I replaced.

What customers say about "Features"
KEF Q150 Bookshelf Speakers (Pair, Black)
  • The perfectly sharp edges and aluminum woofer give it an elegant and modern look.
  • The woofer is assembled perfectly and looks sophisticated with the aluminum material and waveguides.
  • You'll be very pleased with their performance for most types of music - classical to vocal to techno, they have a fast, dynamic sound and are very revealing with source material.
  • Terminals on the back seem solid and they come with foam cutouts to put in the ports if you’re looking to scale the bass back.
  • The build quality of these is nice. I like them better than the Elac's, which isn't as smooth. They are made out similar vinyl finish.
Klipsch RP-150M Bookshelf Speaker - Ebony (Pair)
  • The tweeters are extremely clear and sharp without being overly harsh.
  • I like that the speaker grills are magnetic so they look clean without them - although the copper woofers can be distracting if you leave the grills off.
  • These are really excellent. Be aware that they don't go deep into bass, but they don't claim to. What they do cover is really clean.
  • The box appears to be one solid piece and shines like a star on my desk. Obviously the sound is great too. But with the piano black version, the looks are truly amazing.
  • They're connected to my living room stereo, which is a good sized room. Plenty loud enough. I'm definitely hearing things in songs that I've never heard before. Go for it.
