Computer speakers may seem like an innocuous piece of technology. However, take a few minutes to consider how your speakers contribute to your computing experience. Whether it's listening to music, watching videos or movies online or mixing sound files, a high-quality monitor may be the heart of any media you consume, but the speakers are the lungs. Therefore, purchasing the best computer speakers possible is of paramount importance to achieving the highest quality multimedia experience possible.
Enter the Sony External PC Speakers SRS-A3/BLK. These speakers are not only compact, sleek and portable, but they also produce excellent sound and consist of high-quality components. This type of quality product is exactly what we've come to expect from a company such as Sony.
When all is said and done, the Sony External PC Speakers SRS-A3/BLK are at the top of their class. They're not perfect; their frequency response is a bit shallow on the bass end. The speakers' design, size and price more than compensate for that, however. They're simple to connect and provide excellent sound quality. We have no reservation in recommending this product as the best in the computer speaker category.
