Looking for some decent but cheap speakers for my PC

Post by Hawq » Wed Dec 08, 2021 9:27 pm

The ones I had have finally died, after a few months but thats OK Amazon are doing a refund, so now I need a new pair. These ones an Amazon https://www.amazon.co.uk/SPKPAL-Speaker ... 89&sr=8-20 seem resonably priced & have decent reviews but I figured why not see if anyone knows of a better pair. Still not sure if USB powered or mains is better as my previous ones had a plug & lasted many years but most seem to be USB powered nowadays, guess its headphones til then if I want sound though

Those look alright.

The Amazon Basics speakers might be worth looking at as well.

I was about to suggest a set of Logitech Z623. I picked up mine for $98 (or 52 pounds) in 2018, But I checked now and they're going for $260!!! FUCK THAT.

If you can find a set for 50ish pounds, they're a damn good speaker for that price. Even at around 80 pounds I'd still call them good for the price. But any more than that, and they simply aren't good enough.

All my other speakers are either old, expensive, or old and expensive so I can't help further on something DECENT and cheap.

good luck either way.

Work gave me these when I asked for speakers, they're alright and work off of a headphone jack. I've left them on for a year or two straight and work pretty well for music through the day.
