How to choose a speaker for your computer?
Computers also need speakers, but when buying, you need to consider where and for what purpose you want to use them. At work, in the studio or at home? Listening to music, watching movies or playing games? Maybe for mixing? Before purchasing, let’s take a close look at the market, get information from professionals and it is definitely recommended to test the sound quality during a trial listening. Create the ideal acoustics in your studio or home by using the right acoustic elements so you can be happy with the sound of your audio devices.
The most important things to consider when buying a Pc speaker are:
What do we want to use it for?
When choosing the type of PC speakers, you must first decide exactly what you want to use them for: listening to music, watching movies, or playing computer games, or maybe you need the right sound for your work. It’s worth mentioning here that we don’t really recommend PC speakers for professional music mixing, as we may not get the results we expect. We recommend more professional speakers for these purposes.
How much space do we place the speakers in?
Of course, the size of a particular room also affects what and how many speakers are worth getting in order to sound ideal. We can also place it on a desk or on the wall, according to our possibilities.
Size of speakers:
It doesn’t matter how big a room we can place the speakers in. For example, if we place it on a desk next to a monitor, there will obviously be size limits. For smaller speakers, performance will be more modest.
Should we buy wired or wireless speakers?
We definitely recommend wireless Bluetooth speakers. Nowadays, Bluetooth is one of the basic functions of almost all hi-fi and audio devices, making it extremely easy to connect to our devices.
Do you want surround or stereo sound?
- The stereo speakers consist of 2 speakers
- 2.1 types from 2 surround speakers and 1 subwoofer
- 5.1 systems consist of 4 surround speakers, 1 center speaker and 1 subwoofer.
For stereo speakers in general, the larger the size, the better the bass, but of course the performance and sound quality also depend on the make and model. You can choose between active and passive speakers. Active speakers have a built-in amplifier, but passive speakers require an external amplifier. 2.1 system speakers are usually designed to even be placed on a wall. They play an important role in the treatment of medium and high frequencies. With 5.1 speakers, you can go to the home theater level.
Suitable sound card
The right sound card is essential if you are looking for optimal sound. For computers with an integrated built-in sound card, the internal noise of the machine is often heard, so you may want to consider using a separate sound card for a clearer sound.
Have input jacks on the speakers
It is definitely preferable to choose PC speakers that have multiple input connections to your headphones, MP3 player or iPod.
The exterior also matters
Depending on the room in which you use the speakers, appearance also matters. You can also get modern, sleek or more classic style speakers so everyone can find the right tools for their taste.
Value for money
Not necessarily the most expensive speaker provides the best performance. There is a very wide range of PC speakers on the market, there is no need to spend a fortune to be satisfied.
Whether we use speakers in our workplace or at home, the headphone jack is very useful for the peace of mind of colleagues and family members! This is also something to consider when buying speakers.
Did you know that…
Where does the name “Bluetooth” come from?
Harald Blatand, king of Denmark (from 958) and Norway (976-986), was nicknamed Bluetooth, which means “blue tooth”. He probably got this nickname because he loved blueberries, which caused his teeth to turn blue. He united the rebellious Danish, Norwegian, and Swedish tribes without fighting or bloodshed, mediating between them — which is why this great wireless connection method got the name Bluetooth.
