In fact, there are users who take this almost to the extreme and when they are designing the budget for their equipment, they choose a monitor with integrated speakers so they do not have to buy some speakers apart (or so they don’t take up space on the table). However, not everyone has a monitor with speakers, or even if they settle for something basic, they do prefer something that sounds a little better. If this is your case, you are in the right place.
Good, nice and cheap PC speakers
Well, really some models may not be so “pretty” because this depends a bit on the tastes of each one, but below we are going to recommend some models that we consider to be quite good and that of course we can consider cheap. Now, don’t think that tiny 6 Euro speakers are going to give you a decent sound, we do what we are going to recommend because it is going to give you a really good sound (but don’t expect them to sound raucous either, they’re still cheap speakers).
At present, the model of PC speakers that seems to us to have the best quality / price ratio are the Woxter Big Bass 95a pair of 2.0 stereo speakers that have the peculiarity that they integrate a passive subwoofer, so that low sounds will not be in the background as they do not have a dedicated subwoofer.
These speakers have 20 watts of RMS power, which means that you can use them at a fairly high volume without distortion. They connect to the PC via a 3.5 mm minijack connector (yes, you need to connect them to a power outlet for them to work as well) and have a volume knob on the front, another for the bass level, and an auxiliary input of 3.5 mm (in case you want to connect an audio source directly) and headphone output.
These speakers provide really good sound quality for their size, and also in this case the price goes along with it.
Now, if the price of these Woxter speakers seems too much for what you had planned to invest, there are also cheaper ones but they provide quite good sound quality (not so good, yes), such as the Logitech Z120small-sized stereo speakers that have the advantage over the previous ones that you don’t need to connect them to the electrical outlet, since by plugging them into a USB on your PC they will already have all the energy they need (this makes them ideal for computers laptops, by the way).
Of course, these stereo speakers have a power of just 2 watts RMS, so they are not much better than the ones that your laptop can incorporate from the factory. They are speakers to simply “have sound” on the PC if you don’t have anything else, and if you don’t want them to bulk up a lot. In addition, they only incorporate a volume wheel that in turn serves to turn them on and off, neither more nor less.
These speakers are cheaper, but they are also quite inferior when it comes to sound quality. As we have told you, they practically go “with just enough” to have sound on the PC, so we cannot exactly expect a marvel.
