Buying guide to the best computer speakers
Sound quality and specifications
Most speakers come with a detailed description of its specs. The best way to determine the quality of the sound from the speakers is by using your ears. The best computer speakers have a balance between the upper or midrange treble and lower bass frequencies to produce a good sound that is rich and full. This calls for going for speakers that have big drivers since the ones with small drivers will not be able to reproduce lower notes. One should be careful to note that some vendors tweak speakers so that their output can have a high bass frequency. If one has the need for deep controlled bass than they can have the speakers that have big woofers. One can also consider going for speakers having low frequencies but have accurate sound.
Some speakers have one audio connection which will limit one to listening to sound from their computer only. If one is considering using the speakers in other devices, they should consider going for one with several inputs. Most speakers nowadays come with a second jack that one can use to connect their other sources like phone or iPod.
Controls of the speaker
Most PC speakers do not have controls. One has to use their computer’s volume control to adjust the speaker volume. It is best if one goes for a PC speaker having its volume controls that will allow you to make adjustments of the bass and volume to your satisfaction. The controls should be easily reachable may be on the right or the left speakers or better still they can be having a remote control.
