It’s hard to find good computer speakers. You don’t want them to be too large, but you want them to carry a good sound. Sony’s VAIO computer speakers are a great example of the kind of quality computer speakers that budget-minded people will be looking for.
First off, the speakers are pretty average looking. They’re about the size of normal computer speakers and have buttons for volume and power on the front of the right speaker. One slight annoyance is that they aren’t terribly portable. They’re large for speakers and they have to be plugged into the wall. If you use a laptop instead of a desktop, you might want to opt for something else unless you have a lot of outlets.
If you have a desktop, however, they’re great. They have a ton of power for their size. The music comes out crisp and clear. There’s none of that tinniness that you get from cheap speakers. It sounds as good as any stereo speakers I’ve ever heard. It can even handle music with heavy base without getting too buzzy. Also, they can be incredibly loud if you want them to be. They’re a great choice for someone who wants sound quality above portability. Plug them into your iPod and you have a 600-song boombox for when you have friends over. The sound quality beats out the portability issues hands down.
Overall, these are great speakers and I can’t recommend them enough. You can’t take them places very well, but as long as you keep them stationary, you’ll be satisfied.
