    I never thought about it, as the internal speakers always sounded good enough to me. And that any external speakers wouldn't be worth it for me.

    But I was on vacation checking out an Apple store and they had the Bowers & Wilkins MM-1 hooked up to an Air, and it just sounded amazing.

    I use the soundfreaq sound platform connected to my MacBook through Bluetooth. It's really a great solution for my room since I can connect just about anything to it. It sounds amazing too!

    i do ;)

    but i went for a different route:

    internal speakers and an "TwelveSouth BassJump 2" attached to the MBA,...
    ... amazing and super portable!!!!

    if at home and listening to music, i stream to our entertainment system via an airport express or atv2

    do yourself a favour and give that BassJump a try,... in my opinion its well worth it!!!

    Your internal speakers will never be able to compete with externals, but when you don't have externals available, Boom will give your internal speakers a boost. Of course, I still prefer using my stereo speakers via AirTunes.

    I use a decent set of headphones instead of external speakers.

    The Logitech 700n lapdesk.
    Speakers sound great.

    I use Soundsticks from Harman Kardon, not the latest ones, but the ones before that,.. they have a great sound.

    On the road I use a AiAiAi TM-1 headset.

    +1 The BassJump connected to my iMac adds depth for gaming w/o adding much to the desk in the way of clutter or cords. For music, I stream to the in-wall speakers in the den.
