My only insight is that I have the Genius ones and they are amazing. The one flaw them (if you can even count it) is that the LED light is ridiculously bright. One tiny strip of electrical tape later and the flaw is removed.
No experience with the other speakers, but I highly doubt they would actually be better as I've had more expensive speakers not as good as these.
Just got the Creative Series II T40's and they are BEAST.
They are 2.0 speakers so are perfect for those not looking for booming sub bass. --- Asus Sabertooth z77 - Core i5 3570k @ 4.5Ghz - Hyper 212 Evo - G. Skill Ripjaws X 16 GB Ram - EVGA GTX 680 - Xion 1000W PSU
Green-Thank you for the input; how long have you had them?
fool-Thank you for the suggestion, but those speakers are twice the price of the ones I'm looking at. --- Steam & XBL - xNo L1m1tZx, Origin - xNoL1m1tZx Currently playing BF3, Recon only, go ahead, cry some more.
