      You are correct Mike but the video reviews are the closest you can know about the sound of the product while searching online. You can always go to your local stores for sound test before you buy speakers from them(if they allow).

      Soo..... wouldn't any video review of speaker sound be limited first by the quality of the microphone used for recording and second by the quality of the speakers you're listening to the video through?
