As to the ongoing conversation regarding the manufacturers identity and pedigree--if these speakers actually were designed and produced in Germany as alluded to, they sure as hell wouldn't be selling on MD for $180!
Next point: it's pretty much a given these days that if some product "X" wasn't specifically manufactured in some country "Y", then it most likely follows that product was probably built or assembled in CHINA--so get over it. Further, if these speakers were built in somewhere in South America, using components sourced from somewhere in Asia what difference would that make to the product's function? Again, especially at the price offered?
Now to the important issue: does anyone actually own a pair of these (with the proper plug for their country), and can anyone attest to the operability and the sound-quality of these things? I wouldn't expect them to be JBL beaters, but it would be nice if they actually worked, and sounded acceptable.
Anyone...anyone?

Ray I own 2 pair and also bought one of their hubs that allow you to stream music to both at the same time. They have great power and great bass. I am thinking of buying a 3rd since the other two I paid 299 ea on Amazon.

Well, that's the sort of info we're all looking for here--the straight dope! I saw them on Amazon too and the reviews weren't bad. I might spring for a pair to use in the bedroom or even in the bathroom for showering or shaving.
Appreciate the feedback!

Have you contacted the manufacturer - they really have great customer service. I bet they would send you a plug immediately

Now I find this quite hellarious, the vendor limits it's shipment to the US and they ship you their Australian export version and I live in Australia and can't get in on it. 🤨

Really need to put photos on the drop page showing all of the back photos. Also a link to an owners manual wouldn't hurt. I shouldn't have to scroll the discussion to find those details. Massdrop seriously needs to review the review process they use before drops go live.

0 chance of that. I've been pointing out various errors and omissions for years now, and MD cares little about fixing them (some errors remain in drop titles/descriptions) or making sure that errors do not occur in the first place.

well maybe you can tell me the right word to use when a description from a product said "German Enginered" and the true is that they are desing in the U.S. and manufacture in china. because for me that is cheating, just as the dictionary describes it: act dishonestly or unfairly in order to gain an advantage. but well I give you the chance, to tell me the right word, and I can change it, so you don't feel insulted...

'Even Apple does not manufacture one product outside of china.' Looks at Mac Pro 'Made in USA'.

Honestly these look pretty bad. Although I tend to not trust any drop that doesn't post it's frequency response with it.

Does anyone know how would these compare to Edifier R1850DB?

The kugel has double the wattage in RMS 140 vs 70 watts on the R1850DB Also it has a 6.5" driver vs a 4" mid range One other point is the bi- amp one for the Highs (treble) and one for the deep bass. Most individuals feel that a subwoofer is not necessary for great bass
