More often than not, new computers don’t have an impressive sound, but we’ve remedied that with speakers. However, laptops have a pair of speakers that create a pleasant sound, but it is not an authentic stereo sound. Mostly, these built-in speakers are not ideal for listening to music or watching videos.
Computer speakers come in many varieties and go well with our PC. Bluetooth speakers are the best of the powered-audio options to pair with our desktop. Most speakers only connect to a computer with a USB connection, though. The others can connect wirelessly to our smartphone and computer devices. Connectivity options increase the speakers’ cost, but good connectivity and better sound are also available.
Bose Companion 2 Series III
Most people will find the Companion 2 to be among the best computer speakers in its price range. However large the 7.5 x 5.9 x 3.1-inch satellites may appear, they fill the room with a powerful, full sound. We will not be wasting money on this unit, and it will be worth the higher price compared to lesser models. Remember, even though Bose is expensive, keep in mind that we are paying for the reputation, too. A 6” bass driver has a more powerful midrange and treble sound than a 12” woofer to produce more overall bass and has better voice quality.
There is only one volume knob on the speaker, and it also has a headphone jack so that we can enjoy the music interrupting no one else. These speakers have an excellent tonal balance, but there is no way to adjust the bass or treble.
If we are a headphone wearer, Audio engine A2+ is the best for our desktop. These 6-inch tall, 5-inch-by-wide, 2-inch-thick compact-profile speakers produce clear treble, ample bass, and excellent midrange with no subwoofer. So, they use 15 watts per speaker and make the best sound when we turn them up. It looks good on our desk. We will receive a good quality sound if we purchase this product.
This device includes an audio 3.5mm connection, making it compatible with almost any kind of computer. But depending on the smartphone, our chances of successfully connecting it to this speaker are lesser. And if we have limited floor space, we will appreciate the absence of a subwoofer.
If we love the sound of bass, this speaker suits us. This model features a deep, powerful subwoofer that produces powerful bass. With its 7.7 x 4.9 x 4.6 inches of volume, the two satellite radios create a full sound. We can connect via 3.5mm, RCA, or with an optical audio cable. These speakers are proficient for those who like the low end, as they are among the cheapest on the market.
While the Z625 is more expensive than others, some might argue that its included subwoofer makes it worth the additional cost. However, we are also getting many features we can’t find in less expensive models.
Harman Kardon SoundSticks III
It has been fifteen years since the SoundSticks first debuted on the market, and they remain as innovative as ever. Nothing else looks as good on a desktop. The sound is just as impressive as it was ten years ago. It features the 10.8-inch domed subwoofer and the 2-inch drivers, delivering top-rate sound for full-range vocal reproduction.
There is a striking futuristic look, minimalist design to the system, but it is remarkably uncomplicated. There are two touch-sensitive volume controls on the right speaker and a knob on the back of the sub for bass. Our desktop sounds good as it looks good. The addition of a music mixer allows anyone who helps produce a professional or semi-professional capacity.
Logitech G560 Gaming Speakers
Serious gamers will want to get the Logitech G560 computer speakers. To the best of our knowledge, the G560 produces sound whether we are playing a game or listening to music, and the built-in subwoofer enhances it. If we like to play hard, we will enjoy this system. It has a sophisticated lighting system that uses four colorful, programmable LEDs. Software is required to set up the lights, adjust the sound, and program settings for different games.
A valuable feature of the G560 is that it works with smartphones. So, it means we can play almost anything, and we can easily pass the playback controls on to someone else. The G560 will handle all our power demands and even supply an incredible light show while we are enjoying the music.
If we want to upgrade the computer sound, it is time to move on to a smaller or more compact speaker. Computers already have excellent sound capabilities, taking our sound experience to the next level. The good thing about cheap desktop speakers is that the superb sound quality will surprise us compared with our laptop’s sound.
