Product Description
Back before high quality audio was a standard, Swan was one of the first companies to put studio quality sound in a compact, complete package that fit easily on a desk. The once and future kings of multimedia speakers, Swan continues their desktop dominance with the X3, a pair of twin speakers that pumps out as much clarity and power as units double their size Read More

They're only 3" woofers, fixed, lossy grilles, and a thinnish plastic housing, so don't expect miracles. Deep bass will be completely absent, and even mid-bass will be partially missing, and what's there will be blurred by cabinet resonant noise.
In a small bedroom on a desk they could sound "good", _in theory_, if not pushed hard, but they're just too small to really excel. The real question is whether they sound good enough to fork over US$320+, and I think the odds are stacked against them, design-wise.
Also there's a note in the copy to add a subwoofer if you want bass, but there's no sub out on these, so you'd need a sub with its own crossover inputs and outputs to do so, and not all subs have those, especially the cheaper ones.
For me I'd rather spend $400 on some used, larger Genelecs (or Mackies, Adam, even KRKs...).

die cast aluminium build, not plastic.
This is a video of the x6 which is about $1,200 I think and shows the insides which is probably similar
also as for the sub, you simply plug the speakers from the input into the output of the subwoofer and the intput connects to the source

I'm not say swan makes bad speakers, I'm just saying that their "discount" that whey work with massdrop is not low enough and the price of shipping :( You could find as good or better speakers for a bit less or a lot less depends on deals and were you live .

Oh yeah that is true, I found out the shipping price from an Australian supplier and the shipping is only about $15 for these speakers which is about $20 more than buying from here at its lowest price and you get faster shipping.+

These are freaking outrageously expensive. They kinda reminded me of a Genelec design. I wonder how they sound?

I think it's meant to copy genelec's design; that's what made me click-through. however, on that note I wonder how they sound. if they were able to capture 90% of genelec's quality, it's still a decent deal

I have absolutely the same impression about the look. I wonder how they sound though.
