    Logitech's MX Sound 2.0 Bluetooth speakers are the audio offering in its latest desktop accessory range, which includes the MX ERGO mouse and CRAFT keyboard. Like most stereo speakers around the $99 price point, they're positioned as a decent upgrade over typically lifeless-sounding integrated monitor and laptop speakers.

    The company says it focused on design quality and audio performance when developing these spherical units, so I was intrigued to see how they compared to the likes of Creative's acclaimed GigaWorks T20 Series II speakers, which have garnered an impressive fan base over the last decade.

    I still have two sets of the Logitech V20. It gets its power as well as audio connection from USB-A, which is freaking awesome. The thing doesn't even have a 3.5mm jack. That means I get to plunk down my MacBook, hook up a single USB connection and be done. I find bluetooth... fiddly.

    Some monitors have speakers built-in, however macOS doesn't allow you to use the volume keys on those. The V20 are controllable through macOS like usual.

    They don’t have BT 5.0. And yet they were talking about audio quality

    From my experience, Logitech makes good, cost effective computer accessories that serve their intended purpose well. Some of their products work better than others but that is true of Apple, Microsoft, Google, etc.

    I’ve never had an issue with Logitec speakers . In fact still have my speakers I hooked up to my G5 Mac Pro.

    Nope. Have loved their products for years and years. Your experience is just that, your experience.

    No thanks, they are Fugly, and if I need speakers for my Mac I would get some decent studio speakers.

    Right now I have two huge (About 1 Meter high, 30 cm wide and 40 cm deep-60 Kg each) custom made reference speakers next to my mac.

    Why is it "the worst company on earth"?

    I second the question, I find they make good to great products and have consistently good service.

    I'm afraid I could never use a speaker without hand gesture recognition.

    Also, did the… reviewer describe these as "spherical"…?

    Oh, I didn't know. I guess it's time to ditch my MX Master mouse and switch to something MUCH better. Perhaps, the well designed, ergonomic marvel - Magic Mouse?

    I've owned several logitech speaker systems, three logitech keyboards, logitech wireless mice, bluetooth head phones.
    My experience has been consistently positive with their products

    Good to know. You're right, I'll go telephone my custom speaker maker and order some bespoke three foot tall speakers to put on my desk.

    I was going to just order this basic set of speakers, but they were 1) not gigantic enough and 2) cost way too little money, and 3) were too easy to get. This solves those problems nicely.

    They are next to my Mac, I didn't say on my desk.
    Custom made partly by myself, as in I built them myself but they are reference speakers.
