How much are you looking to spend? Do you want bass too?
Good quality 2.1 speakers for $58
Ok, I was going to say I got the ones below from Walmart, $12 i think and am using them on my Macbook, I mounted them under the desk, I have a glass top desk and it worked out well, just used some tie wraps, but if you want bass you will need something with a subwoofer.
This is what I got...
For bass maybe check out something like these...
I think these are wireless but not sure.
I originally got these for my eeePC and I was very surprised at the amount of sound it puts out...
Portable and very inexpensive also!
If you also like listening to music for the pure enjoyment by itself.
I bought a pair of those and have loved 'em ever since
(I'm LF from Brandon in the review there)
Wireless Thread Here...although it diverged.
Price range is key. I'd recommend the Altec Lansing FX6021 over the sound sticks.
There are more...MRoogle is your friend.
PC Magazine's Editors Rating rated the Harman Kardon Soundsticks #2 and "excellent" of all computer speakers. CNET had them at #7 overall and also "excellent". The Altec Lansing FX6121 was rated "very good" in PC Magazine's review and not an Editor's Choice. I'm not saying the FX6021's are bad, but for pure musicality over loud sound effects, I'd go with the Soundsticks. And they'll cost you half the price.
Idn. Guess the grass is always greener on the other side. I had the Sound Sticks', but wished that I had bought the FX6021s... Oddly, I thought the bass on the Altec Lansing was the more appealing part. I thought the mids were cleaner on the soundsticks. But, I just went off the deep and went the monitor route.
I think what you're saying is true. The Soundsticks have crisp and transparent mids and highs, and that's why they're preferred for those where musicality is top priority over loud bass sound as part of a sound effects package. But the subwoofer on the Soundsticks is no slouch either if you want to crank it up for games and the like.
Meh. The mids were better on the soundsticks, the highs were different, I'm almost completely music listening, I'd take the FX6021s if I had to go down that route again.
