Having your speakers in your room hits differently compared to sharing them with your family or siblings in the living room. More so, when these are speakers for your PC.
Whether working or playing games or listening to music, it’s sometimes better to use the speakers instead of your headphones or earbuds. Why? Because there’s a different kind of vibe that speakers offer compared to earbuds and headphones. There’s just the way the low thumping of the bass resonates through your computer table and then in your entire room. The way music fills the corners of your space is just different in a relaxing kind of way. Of course, you will worry whether whatever is playing on your speakers will seep through the walls and door of your room. But they’re close enough to you that there’s no need to amp up the volume–especially when you have speakers that are loud enough even when the volume’s low.
Who this is for
Students and businessmen and women alike working from home–even gamers–need good speakers for computers to stimulate the brain. Good speakers, aside from having the right gaming headphones, even for gamers, hype up the game! This way, you won’t get tired easily from doing office work or homework because good music from great speakers helps comfort you.
How we picked and how we tested
As always, we made sure to gather enough intel on these and their specs. These speakers undergo a few procedures, and we’re happy to say that the results are more than we initially expected.
Best Wireless Speakers for Computer
Logitech is one of the few brands popular among gamers. Logitech ensures high-quality gaming from PC monitors down to the tiniest bit of the PC part, the mouse. Of course, Logitech doesn’t have any plans on getting behind the times and have manufactured their own speakers best for gamers. Among the speakers they have, Logitech G560 rose above the others.
Logitech G560 consists of three speakers–two satellites and one subwoofer. The speakers’ satellites weigh about 3.94lbs in total, while the subwoofer weighs about 12.1lbs. The satellites measure 5.8 x 6.5 x 4.6 inches, whereas the subwoofer’s dimensions are 15.9 x 10 x 8.1 inches. Logitech G560’s connectivity supports a 3.5mm audio jack, USB, and Bluetooth. So you can choose whether to have it plugged directly into your computer or take advantage of the Bluetooth connectivity to avoid cables tangling.
The good thing about these speakers is the immersive light syncs RGB lighting. The volume is great for those who want to set it low, but the sound is still loud. It is most likely because of the speakers’ built-in DTS:X Virtual Surround Sound.
Logitech Z407 weighs lighter than the G560. However, both consist of three speakers with two satellites and one subwoofer. Logitech Z407’s satellites and subwoofer weigh a total of 8.8lbs only with the dimensions 13.46H x 10.71W x 8.35D inches.
While G560 supports USB connectivity, Logitech Z407 supports micro USB instead. The speakers still support a 3.5mm audio jack and Bluetooth connectivity, as well. The speakers have a total of 80W of power with a relatively booming bass sound.
What makes the Logitech Z407 different from the G560 is the wireless control knob. You can easily control your music with smooth spins from the knob.
Weighing a total of 7.7lbs per pair, Ruark MR1 is a good buy with its size. Ruark MR1 consists of only two cubic speakers with the dimensions 6.6 x 5.1 x 5.3 inches. They are easy to set on your computer table by putting them on each side of the PC or beside one another.
Ruark MR1 supports a 3.5mm jack and Bluetooth connectivity. Speakers are easy to install and a literal plug-and-play for most. The sound quality is also good, but the Ruark MR1 isn’t suitable for gamers. Although the sound quality is easily on par with wireless speakers of its kind, the Ruark MR1 is the best fit for casual use, such as Spotify music playlist and the likes.
AudioEngine A5+ Wireless
The AudioEngine A5+ Wireless has quite a premium price. AudioEngine A5+ Wireless consists of two rectangular speakers in portrait position. Each of them measures 10.8inches in height and 7 inches wide. The left speaker has a deeper depth because it is where the buttons and connections are. The right speaker weighs 9.4lbs, while the left one weighs 15lbs—the AudioEngine A5+ peaks at 150W of power with a frequency of 50Hz to 22kHz.
On the back part of the left speaker, you’ll see all of the necessary buttons and power outputs for it. The Bluetooth antenna is even visible and also the pairing button. Unlike the usual wireless speakers, the AudioEngine A5+ needs a direct connection to a power source instead of charging it to play independently for a couple of hours.
As for the speakers’ sound quality, the sound is rich and clear with thick bass and smooth treble.
Harman Kardon Soundsticks 4
The Harman Kardon Soundsticks 4 has quite a pleasing appearance, especially with its default color. However, most people agreed that the Harman Kardon Soundsticks 4 looks more like a jellyfish or a UFO. These speakers consist of two satellites that stand long and one dome-shaped subwoofer. Each satellite measures 10.6 x 3.3 x 3.3 inches, and the subwoofer at 10.9 x 9.1 x 9.1 inches. The overall power of the speakers is 100W, and with the combined system, it reaches 140W with a frequency of 40Hz to 20kHz.
The Harman Kardon Soundsticks 4 have a Bluetooth connection of 4.2, which is still as seamless as a Bluetooth 5.0. There were no connection problems on iPhone 8, according to test results. So we can say this is still pretty useful in 2021. The sound quality isn’t something to laugh at, as well, because the speakers deliver a clear and crisp sound with just the right bass.
Klipsch The Fives
Klipsch’s The Fives has a handsome design and is considered “bookshelf speakers” due to its ergonomic design. The speakers consist of two measuring 12 x 6.5 x 9 inches and weigh a total of 22lbs. The left speaker, which is the main speaker where most of the buttons are, weighs 11.8lbs. The other one weighs only 10.7lbs. The total power of these speakers reaches 160W with a frequency of 50Hz to 25kHz.
As for Klipsch’s The Fives connectivity, it supports Bluetooth 5.0, HDMI, and optical.
The sound quality of the speakers is worth its price, with a low thumping of bass and treble smooth enough to feel it resonate on your desks. Although, with the size of these speakers, you can either place one on top and the other on the floor or make sure your computer table is sturdy enough, considering their weight.
AudioEngine A1 is a powerful pair of Bluetooth Speakers and is as wireless as wireless speakers can get. Compatible with most devices, from Android to iOS, these speakers are sure to cater to your PC needs.
Each speaker measures 6 x 4 x 5.3 inches and weighs 6.7lbs, which makes it easier to set them on your computer table without worrying whether the table is sturdy enough for it or not. With a total of 60W of power, AudioEngine A1 has a frequency of 65Hz to 22kHz. If the speakers’ level bothers you at some point (the drivers’ angles are not upward), you can opt to purchase a desktop stand specifically for these speakers.
The speakers deliver balanced sound. Nothing too deep or thick–which means adding a subwoofer to the party will create a deeper rumble. Hence, these speakers best fit casual PC users who don’t rely too much on heavy bass and want something simple.
House of Marley Get Together Duo
With an eco-friendly design, House of Marley Get Together Duo is the best choice for those who aim for an aesthetically pleasing theme for their computer desks. One that’s pleasing to the eye and relaxing even when work is somewhat full of pressure. It’s just like getting a breath of fresh air from the speakers’ appearance and sound quality, as well.
The Get Together Duo is not for heavy gamers and only suits casual users. Each speaker measures 7.8 x 5 x 4 and weighs lighter than other wireless speakers. The materials used for these speakers are eco-friendly. The front panel is bamboo and black fabric of reclaimed cotton and hemp for its side panels.
Unlike the bigger speakers, House of Marley Get Together Duo’s speakers have RCA outputs, each compatible with 3.5mm audio jacks. The speakers’ full power comes with 20W.
House of Marley Get Together Duo’s playtime is 20 hours on moderate use and is compatible with a 5.0 Bluetooth. The speakers also support the SBC Bluetooth codec. For the sound quality, it’s clear and rich with the right amount of bass.
Razer Nommo Pro
The Razer Nommo Pro consists of three speakers–two satellites and one subwoofer with a total weight of 27.6lbs and a total measurement of 14 x 17 x 22 cm.
These speakers have Bluetooth connectivity of 4.2, which isn’t necessarily bad, especially when its purpose is for PC use only. The Razer Nommo Pro has fantastic sound quality that doesn’t forget to enhance the bass to give the right amount of thundering bass that will blow you away!
The Razer Nommo Pro has a plug to connect it to an outlet for power. It doesn’t need to be charged, unlike other Bluetooth speakers for PCs.
Edifier E235 Luna E
The design of these speakers looks a little bit classier and sophisticated compared to other PC speakers. Edifier E235 Luna E consists of three speakers–two round satellites and one round subwoofer. These speakers only have one color combination, and that’s red and black–with the entire body black and the speaker drivers black.
The speakers weigh 3.6kgs and measure 4.8 x 8.35 x 8.74 inches. Edifier’s only supported connectivity is Bluetooth and still has audio outputs with a 3.5mm audio jack. On the back of the speakers are USB cables for charging purposes. There’s also a remote that makes it easier to control your media.
With a total output wattage of 234W, Edifier E235 runs at 20 hours of battery life and is still usable while charging.
The sound quality of these speakers, despite their classy design, is quite good, especially in the bass department. There’s a good thumping and satisfying rumble. But we don’t recommend it to gamers or bass enthusiasts.
There are a few questions that many frequently ask about getting their wireless speakers for their computers. We have a list below for these questions and answers with the best we can give to help clarify yours, as well, hopefully.
Do I need speakers with many features?
That depends on what your main purpose is for using a computer. What you’ll do with your computer is crucial to the kind of speakers you need. You can get a pair with a remote, so it’s easier to press next, preview, play, and pause when working while passively listening to music.
Are wireless PC speakers better than wired ones?
Not really. In terms of sound quality, both wireless and wired are on par with one another. Although the battery life for some wireless PC speakers is a shot in the dark, some are still usable even while charging. It solely depends on whether you’re willing to go through the process of making sure your wires are tidy or opt for the viable option where there are fewer cables.
Wireless Speakers for Computers are an advantage, especially when you have pets or kids at home. You won’t have to worry about the cables getting gnawed at or snapped in two. It’s also easier to arrange them on the computer table whenever you want because there are no wires to hinder you from doing so. As in some wired PC speakers, their cables are short and difficult to set up onto the PC. It is best to keep your interests in mind so you can confidently choose the right pair for you.
