Show seasonal allergies who’s boss

If you suffer from seasonal allergies, now is when they are at their worst. Stock up on allergy season’s most important products to keep your home, classroom, and office allergen-free. Start with an air purifier to strip the air of allergens like pollen and pet dander and replace existing air filters for improved air quality. Frequently dust, wipe down hard surfaces, and vacuum carpets and furniture to help eliminate pollen tracked in from outside and dander left behind by pets. When leaving the house, check the pollen count and bring a face mask to help filter the air you breath outside.

No matter what you do, it’s unlikely that the symptoms of seasonal allergies can be avoided entirely. Make sure to have over-the-counter cold and allergy medications on hand to battle symptoms, and stock up on facial tissues so you’ll always have one available when you need them.

Spring (Cleaning) is in the air

Spring cleaning and decluttering is a tradition meant to refresh our spaces for the year ahead. Staples has everything you need to clear out the clutter, store and organize your belongings, and all the right cleaning supplies.

Clear out the clutter

Start by preparing a checklist and make sure you have all the necessary supplies. Use storage bins and a label maker to make sorting and organizing easier. Prepare extra boxes for donations and trash bags for the things you no longer need. Look for decorative boxes & baskets that will compliment your home’s décor and use them to organize. You can also use closet organizers and storage drawers anywhere they are needed.

Start with the basics

An all-purpose cleaner, cleaning brush and microfiber cloths will clean most surfaces. Use a duster to remove unwanted dirt and furniture polish to revitalize wood surfaces. Upgrade your broom, dustpan, wet mop, and vacuum to make cleaning any type of flooring a breeze.

The nitty gritty

Spring cleaning doesn’t stop there. There’s so much you can do to reset your home:

  • Improve air quality and eliminate pollen and pet dander with a new air purifier and an air freshener with a scent you love.
  • On a sunny day, take the opportunity to clean your windows – you’ll need glass cleaner, a bucket, a squeegee, and paper towels.
  • Have a step stool or ladder on hand to access hard-to-reach places like the tops of cabinets and overhead lighting.
  • Replace broken light bulbs and check the batteries in your smoke detectors.
  • Use drain cleaner to clear up sink and bathtub drains.

Best computer speakers of 2023

A good pair of headphones can help you ignore your coworkers while at work, but why bother with headphones if you’re at home? Plenty of people just let their computer speakers do all the work, but a good pair of computer speakers can drastically improve your audio experience at home. Whether you want some background music, plan on gaming, or just want better quality sound for all those cat videos on YouTube, any of these will get the job done. These are the best computer speakers you can get right now.

Editor’s note: this list of the best computer speakers was updated on June 15, 2023 to fix links, add mention of the Razer Leviathan V2, and update outdated information.

Computer speakers are important for almost anyone that spends most of their time at a desk. We get that you don’t really have too much control over the speakers you use at work, but if you come home and still spend a good amount of time at your desk then any of these will get the job done. If you do happen to have a choice as to what speakers you use at your work desk, then why rob yourself of a good experience? Whether you’re a gamer, someone looking to do some at-home audio production, or really don’t care about quality and just want your audio to be louder than the built-in computer speakers for when you’re showing friends and family those videos from your last vacation, then these are for you. Trust us, you won’t realize you want them until you need them for something.

The best computer speakers are the Audioengine HD3

When it comes to what the best option is, it’s hard to argue against the Audioengine HD3. The speakers are slim enough to fit on even the smallest desk, and won’t look out of place in a home office or a student dorm. The design isn’t going to blow you away as they’re just small boxes that sit on your desk, but they do look pretty sleek with or without the grill that magnetically snaps onto the front of the speaker.

9. 1

Audioengine HD3

The Audioengine HD3 speakers emphasize lower notes, but the mids sound fantastic. If you want to sing along to your favorite songs while cleaning the house, these are for you. The speakers sound good, but they fall short when compared to some other high-end studio monitors. So, why is it our top pick? Well, besides being able to hardwire these directly into your computer, these come with Bluetooth connectivity with aptX for higher quality streaming (or AAC if you’re on an iOS device). Switching between your computer and a friends smartphone is seamless and makes using them for fun that much easier. The downside to these speakers is pretty obvious, and it comes in the form of the price tag. But if you have money to invest, these won’t let you down.

If you’re looking for a step up from here, the Audioengine A5 offers a similar experience, just cranked up to 11. larger drivers, more features, and even a bamboo casing option all make for a more credible—and more expensive—step up to our pick.

For the money, the Audioengine HD3’s are hard to beat if you’re looking for a good pair of speakers for your desk or bookshelf.

If you’re a student, you should probably get the Creative Pebble V3

When students are looking for something like a new set of speakers, price is usually the main consideration, but it’s not the only consideration. It’s important to get something that’s compact, easy to throw in a backpack or fit in a dorm room—that’s why the Creative Pebble V3 speakers are worth a look.

These small speakers measure just 4.4 inches wide, and connect with a single USB-C cord—no additional power cord required. These aren’t audiophile-grade speakers by any means, but for the price and convenience, they sound pretty good.

The Creative Pebble V3 is costs around $40 USD and brings 50% loud audio compared to its predecessor, which was a little on the quiet side. It supports Bluetooth and 3.5mm input connections (though it will still depend on power from USB), and comes with a USB-A to USB-C adapter if you’re worried about what port to plug it in.

If you do want the best sound, then step it up a notch with the PreSonus Eris 3.5

Where most speakers are either cheap or absurdly expensive, the PreSonus Eris 3.5 toe the line right in the middle perfectly. At around $99 for the base 3.5″ model, you get an great set of studio monitors that are perfect for work or play.

Overall, these speakers sound better than you’d expect. Though higher frequencies could be more detailed, and the bass a little over-emphasized out-of-the-box, acoustic tuning controls allow you to adjust the sound of these speakers according to your listening environment. Connecting to these speakers can be done through the 3.5mm aux input, or using the two 1/4″ TRS inputs at the back of the left speaker. For less than a hundred dollars, these speakers are a great option for the casual media consumer, or for an aspiring bedroom producer.

The best speakers for gamers are the Logitech G560

Gaming is a huge industry and one company that is known for making gear specifically for gamers is Logitech. The company makes everything from headsets to keyboards and controllers, but it also has some really good speaker options. The Logitech G560 LIGHTSYNC brings a lot of different features aimed at gaming needs, offering a platform for even more speakers.

The speakers sound good, with two satellite speakers and one subwoofer. When connected to a PC, they also support surround sound using DST:X, and offer RGB lighting that reacts to what’s happening in game. The Logitech G560 work with just about everything, supporting 3.5mm, USB, and Bluetooth connections, though surround sound wont work on MacOS. They may be a little pricey, but these speakers offer a truly comprehensive suite of features for gamers.

If you’re really trying to save some cash, go with the Cyber Acoustics 2.1 Subwoofer Speaker System

The Cyber Acoustics 2.1 speaker system is nothing fancy, just a simple setup with two satellite speakers and a decent subwoofer. Still, it gets the job done for around $30. There’s not a lot too them, but if you’re looking for something in this price range, you probably don’t want much.

This speaker setup comes equipped with a handy control pod that allows for volume control, and lets you plug an input in via the 3. 5mm jack. The control pod also features a headphone jack. These are pretty large speakers, and they look basically like big black boxes, but for the price they sound decent and they’re easy to use.

What you should know about the best computer speakers

Obviously, this list isn’t exhaustive, nor is it going to satisfy anyone looking to shovel out some cash on the last speakers they’ll ever buy. However, we felt it was more important to meet the needs of most people rather than merely list the absolute best of the best. Truth is, these options will get you most of the way there, and there are plenty of alternatives to satisfy those looking for something a little more expensive.

Do you need an amp?

You’ll be happy to know that if you buy one of these speakers, you probably won’t need to spend any more on a dedicated amp. You can learn way more about amps by reading our explainer piece. In short, amps are used when the source device (in this case your computer) can’t provide enough power to the headphones or speakers that you’re listening with. After all, these are electronics and require a sufficient amount of power to drive them in order to work properly.

Although there are certain audio products that benefit from amplifiers, we chose picks that don’t require them in order to keep costs down for the best computer speakers.

Luckily, all of these speakers need to be plugged in anyway, meaning they have their own amplifiers inside—so you don’t have to rely on anything but the sound from your source device. Though it’s worth mentioning that the Audioengine HD3 speakers we mentioned do have a built-in 24-bit DAC and a pretty decent amp. So if you do have a high-end pair of headphones that need a little more juice to power them, you can just plug them into the speakers.

Do you need to buy new cables?

You do not need to buy replacement or “better” cables for your speakers unless you don’t like the way they look. Really, the only reason you’d ever need to buy cables beyond the ones included in the box would be if they broke or weren’t included. Beyond that, you could even use a coathanger if you wanted.

In general, as long as the analog cables can satisfy the power requirements, and the USB cables aren’t broken, you’ll enjoy the best sound you could possibly get out of that system. You don’t have to overthink it.

What’s the deal with Bluetooth codecs?

A few of these speakers support Bluetooth so that you can connect to other devices like a smartphone or tablet. Now, it’s worth mentioning that Bluetooth has a bad reputation. And there are plenty of pros and cons to it, but it’s still an option that plenty of people would find useful. The problem is that sound quality over Bluetooth isn’t the greatest. One way to find out if your audio is going to sound good over a wireless connection is to check the Bluetooth codec.

Represented is the max transfer rate (kbps) of each respective Bluetooth codec (greater is better). Each waveform depicts a transfer rate of 100 kbps.

This can get a little complicated so for a full explanation make sure to read our full codec breakdown, but if you’re pressed for time here’s the gist of it. A codec encodes and then decodes digital audio. This means that both the source device and the audio device need to have compatible codecs.

Think of it as a language. If the speakers can’t understand what the source device is sending it, they aren’t going to decode it properly. All Bluetooth speakers or headphones have a standard codec that they can understand called SBC. You can think of it like hand gestures. If you’re visiting another country and don’t know the language, you can probably still find a way to ask a store owner where the bathroom is just by using hand gestures. It isn’t the most nuanced form of communication, but you’ll get the point across.

It’s the same with SBC. It isn’t the greatest quality, but all devices understand it and you’ll still hear your music. If you know the language, you could probably ask where the bathroom is and order your favorite coffee and a snack while you’re at it. That’s basically what the better codecs do. They allow two devices to send more information to each other, resulting in better sound quality.

What about streaming services?

Unless you’re going to be plugging in your record player and have a damn near perfect collection or playing high-quality files that you have stored on your computer, chances are you’re going to be listening to music via streaming services. There is a good amount to choose from, but they’re not all created equal. Some are better than others and depending on what you’re looking for, it might be worth looking into what some of the perks of each are. We have that breakdown for you here, but hopefully, this chart will help you out if all you care about is pricing (and who could blame you?)

What you should know about Bluetooth

When it comes to Bluetooth streaming, it’s not all good news. While it’s come a long way since it was first introduced in audio products, it’s still not as good as wired is when it comes to sound quality. We did some of our own tests and found that quite a few Bluetooth codecs just don’t live up to the standard of high-res (including LDAC). That said, if you have an iOS device you will find that AAC does a pretty good job with streaming music wirelessly, but that’s only if you have iOS. When streaming on Android devices data that would otherwise increase quality in the high end gets lost. Of course, if you do prefer to connect wirelessly and want the convenience of being able to pick up your speaker and bring it with you wherever you go, make sure to check out our list of some of the best Bluetooth speakers around.

Notable mentions

  • Bose Companion 2 Series III:  For a hundred dollars, you’re getting Bose’s premium sound signature at an affordable price. This features a frequency response that’s more balanced than found on most computer speakers, wrapped in a desk-friendly enclosure that will suit any user’s workspace.
  • Fluance Ai40: These bookshelf speakers deliver a neutral frequency response that will suit music listeners and movie-goers of any genre, complete with Bluetooth connectivity and aptX support.
  • Gogroove Basspulse WirelessIf you don’t want to spend too much but still want something eye-catching and unique, check out the Gogroove Basspulse Wireless because who doesn’t like LEDs?
  • Grovemade Wood SpeakersWe loved these speakers when we got a chance to check them out. They sound good and the build quality is amazing. The reason they didn’t make this list is mainly because of the high price tag, but if you can afford it you won’t be disappointed by this work of art by Grovemade.
  • Harman Kardon SoundSticks III: This speaker is both eye candy and ear candy, combining industrial design with powerful drivers to deliver impressive sound—all from the comfort of your desk.
  • Mackie CRX-3: Mackie’s offering has been considered a worthy adversary in the realm of sub-$100 studio monitors, offering decent sound quality at an accessible price.
  • PreSonus Eris 3.5 BT: This speaker offers all the features of the Eris 3.5, equipped with Bluetooth capabilities.
  • Razer Leviathan V2: Soundbars are an interesting prospect for computer speakers, and Razer’s Leviathan has a lot of cool things like spatial audio added in. While we don’t usually recommend this form factor for a computer, Razer knows PC gamers.

Why you should trust

SoundGuys

In addition to the fact that this site is all of our day jobs, both Adam and Chris have several years of reviewing consumer audio products under their belts individually. Having kept a finger on the pulse of Bluetooth speakers for several years allows us to be able to figure out what’s good, and what’s best avoided. Considering Chris’ burning hatred for all things Bluetooth, if he approves of something, it’s damned special. In a similar vein, Adam has reviewed tons of these speakers over the course of almost three years, so he’s heard the best (and worst) of what the category has to offer.

Chris boasts countless hours of testing consumer audio products over many years.

We should also state that we regularly update these lists as items become available. However, we only add them if there’s a really solid reason for doing so. Usually, we have to use it first—unless there’s some mind-meltingly awesome feature or price-change that would deem a test or re-test unnecessary. As you can imagine, that doesn’t happen often.

These best lists may not always reflect your experiences, but they are our earnest attempt to get the right product onto your wish list. We do this because we genuinely want you to be happy with your purchases—none of our writers see a dime from partnership deals or referral purchases—and nobody here is allowed to benefit from steering you towards one product or another. While this site does make money from referrals, the individual writers are paid based on their work regardless of whether or not people clicked that “buy” icon. They’ll never even know if anyone did, though I suppose the site going under might be a good hint.

Frequently asked questions about computer speakers

Computer speakers are typically marketed to consumers, providing a pleasing, bassy sounding profile that will suit the needs of the casual listener. Meanwhile, studio monitor type speakers are primarily designed for professional audio applications, prioritizing a flatter frequency response, with the listener positioned directly in front of and in between the speakers. This is to achieve an accurate reproduction of sound that is less colored by the room’s acoustics.

Conclusions

When choosing a modern computer speaker system, you need to pay attention to the following points:

  • the frequency range of the front speakers, the total power and the availability of additional interfaces are key indicators that require increased attention from the buyer;
  • the materials used should also be taken into account – it is better if the acoustic equipment is made of wood, but elements made of strong plastic are also allowed;

How to choose speakers for your computer: getting into the details

A banal question: which speakers for a computer are better to buy? Here are some important features to look out for.

Strictly speaking, if you have a laptop, you can connect any wireless speaker via Bluetooth. The same can be done with a PC (you just need to buy a module), but we’ll leave battery solutions for entertainment. And for the computer we will select a full-fledged multimedia acoustics. That’s just what? Let’s take it in order.

Wired or Bluetooth?

Computer speakers can also be connected wirelessly. And, as a rule, it is duplicated by wires. Moreover, there are models with an SD card slot – this allows you to record music on the card and turn it on without turning on the computer. For example, such a function is available in the following Defender model:

Regardless of the type of connection, acoustics is a component set of two or more speakers and a power amplifier, which can be built into the case of one of the speakers or separate. Depending on the number of components in the system, multimedia speakers are divided into ten types, which are indicated by numbers, for example, 1. 0 or 5.1 .

  • The first digit indicates the number of columns in the system. There are two in system 2.1.
  • The second digit indicates the presence or absence of a subwoofer – a special speaker for reproducing low frequencies. Again, there is a subwoofer in the 2.1 system – the music on such speakers will be with deep, rich bass.

Which speakers are specifically designed for the computer? As a rule, multimedia speakers of types 1.0, 2.0, 2.1, 3.1 and 5.1 are sold in computer stores. Let’s talk in more detail about each of them.

  • 1.0: Monocolumn
  • 2.0: stereo speakers
  • 2.1: stereo speakers + subwoofer
  • 3.1: fronts, center + subwoofer
  • 5.1: Dolby Digital
  • Additional options

Format 1.0: monocolumn

Speakers of type 1.0 with a computer, as a rule, are not used. The sound in such a column goes through one channel to one small speaker – like in portable ones. But, unlike them, it is not designed to be carried.

Portable speakers connect to a smartphone, laptop or player via Bluetooth, and a 1.0 computer speaker via a 3.5 line-out. And it is powered by the mains, and not by a battery – thus, it makes no sense to carry it somewhere.

On the other hand, 1.0 speakers can play up to 10 watts of sound – much louder than portable ones, but cost about the same. For example, such a speaker Logitech costs like a good portable mono speaker JBL Go but louder.

Format 2.0: stereo speakers

Well, this, on the contrary, is the most popular format for computer speakers. Two speakers are connected by a wire (called a strip) to reproduce stereo sound. One of the speakers has a built-in amplifier. The entire system is powered either from the mains or from USB, and connects to a PC either using a 3.5 mm line-in input, or (attention) using an analog RCA connector, which is more common in DVD players, stereos and TVs than on PC sound cards – pay attention to this when choosing!

In the case of a pair of speakers, it is no longer just about power, but about the total power. The two speakers together can play up to 60 watts of sound. There are two niches on the market in this regard:

  • single-way speakers with one pair of speakers and a total power of 5-10 W – a kind of analogue of portable stereo speakers like JBL Flip. For example, here is a model from SVEN :
  • two-way PC speakers with two pairs of speakers with a total power of 40-60 W – in fact, classic 2.0 speakers for a stationary PC. For example, GMNG OK-603 has a total power of 50 watts. By the way, it has not only a wired connection, but also wireless via Bluetooth. You can also listen to FM radio stations: the tuner is also available here.
  • Format 2.1: stereo speakers + subwoofer

    If you often listen to music or you want the sound of your virtual shotgun to sound as realistic as possible, take speakers of this type – that is, models with a subwoofer.

    Like 2.0 speakers, 2.1 systems are characterized by a total power output (from 25 to 65 W), which includes the combined power of two speakers and a subwoofer. The speakers can be single-way or two-way, and the power of the subwoofer determines how much the sound will “rock the dance floor” – if this is important to you, choose a kit with a more powerful subwoofer.

    2.1 systems are mains powered only and can have either 3.5mm or RCA audio output. Whenever possible, we generally select models with a 3.5 mm jack, so as an example of a great 2. 1 audio system, let’s take this 45-watt Defender as an example, which looks cool and sounds good:

    3.1 format: front, center + subwoofer

    More precisely, two front, one center and a subwoofer. These speakers not only allow you to play only music in stereo, but also create directional surround sound when you are at your PC, so they are highly recommended for gamers. Specifically, the two front speakers are usually mounted on the sides of the PC, the subwoofer is at the bottom, and the center speaker is at the top, so if you get blown up by a grenade in a game, you will not only hear it, but also feel it in some way.

    The system is powered by the mains. The total power of speakers 3.1 can be from 30 watts. From the 3.1 speakers begins the reign of the analog RCA connector, which is not supported by standard sound cards. We found only one 3.1 model from CROWN (very good, by the way) that connects to a PC via a 3.5 mm jack:

    RCA – at least like this.

      Best Bluetooth Speakers for a Cool Party

    5.1 Format: Dolby Digital

    This type of speaker is entirely designed for gamers with cool soundtracks and sound effects. The audio system includes two front and two center speakers, as well as a subwoofer. Thus, it provides playback including five-channel surround sound in Dolby Digital and DTS formats. These speakers often come with a physical Dolby Digital or DTS-II decoder.

    5.1 speakers allow you to turn your computer into a good home theater – only for this, of course, you need to connect them to it. It is extremely rare to find a 3.5 mm output here, much more often – an analog RCA output, a digital optical or coaxial output. Outputs vary in cable type and connector shape. The advantages of one type or another are almost imperceptible to a non-specialist, so there is no point in dwelling on them. You just need to buy the appropriate adapter for the sound card.

    There are budget options in the 5.1 world, but they can’t compete with true home theater systems. For games, this one will be quite enough:

    There are also cooler layout options: 6:1 and 7:1. But to feel the difference with 5.1 will not be easy.

    Additional Options

    What else might influence your choice of which speakers to buy for your computer?

    • Microphone input . Many PC speakers have a microphone input, so if you’re into singing or karaoke, choose a model with one or two inputs.
    • USB or battery powered . Small computer speakers may not require an electrical connection, but be powered by your laptop, power bank or batteries. If mobility is important to you, pay attention to it.
    • Magnetic shielding . Don’t overpay for this feature! It has not been relevant for a long time. In short, shielded speakers do not distort the image on old TVs and CRT monitors with their electromagnetic field.
