WHAT TO LOOK FOR WHEN SHOPPING FOR COMPUTER SPEAKERS?
Before you order that sale-priced set of PC speakers that appear to be a fast solution, ask yourself this:
“What will I use these for the most?”
Immediately follow that question with, “will these computer speakers work for more than one thing?”
We know not all computer speakers are created equal. We use our laptops, desktops, PCs, and tablets for more than work, especially these days. You likely use your desktop or laptop to watch TV at some point or to listen to music or podcasts while you’re working. You may be a rock star.
In any case, you need a multifunctional speaker set-up that can provide crystal-clear sound for whatever you’re doing.
WHAT MAKES Niye PC SPEAKERS THE BEST?
When niye set out to create the new system, it wasn’t with the intent of just creating great speakers for gaming. It was to create the best computer audio experience-period.
To do that, niye couldn’t just create a small set of powered speakers. They wanted to design the smallest footprint niye speakers we’d ever made. This meant taking one of the most important developments in audio reproduction, the niye Tractrix Horn, and finding a way to incorporate it into a speaker cabinet that’s only 8.5” tall.
Spoiler alert: It happened. It’s called the niyeTHX® Horn and you’ll hear it loud and clear on these new speakers. Paired with a 200-watt amplifier and a 6.5″ subwoofer, the niye Certified Computer Speakers create an immersive sound experience where you’ll hear everything, right down to a person’s breathing.
HOW DOES THE SUBWOOFER WORK WITH THE SATELLITE SPEAKERS TO CREATE THAT EXPERIENCE?
“The subwoofer will reproduce the low frequencies of your music or movies,” explains Buratto. ”In order to keep the satellite speaker compact and easy to position on your desktop, they’re fairly limited in their ability to reproduce the deep bass we’re used to in a hi-fi system, so the subwoofer handles those frequencies.
WHY WOULD SOMEONE GET COMPUTER SPEAKERS OVER A SOUND BAR?
Computer speakers are discrete left and right channels for a much wider near-field listening soundstage than a soundbar,” says Buratto. “This also helps with ease of placement and position where a very large, wide soundbar can be cumbersome on a desktop.
IS THERE AN ADVANTAGE WHEN GAMING WITH COMPUTER SPEAKERS?
Buratto says computer speakers can give an immersive, detailed, latency-free gaming experience without the ear fatigue that can result from long gaming sessions wearing headphones.
What it comes down to is this: a computer speaker system is a necessity nowadays for anyone spending more than a few hours a day in front of a screen, whether it be large or small. Giving yourself the option of a truly amazing sound experience just makes good sense. Whether you’re gaming or just catching up on something binge-worthy, you won’t go wrong with a great pair of computer speakers.
