Best PC Speakers $110 budget

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
i need the best i speakers i can get for around $110.
This is going to be strictly for MUSIC ONLY, no games or movies on it whatsoever.
Bass is important, but i dont need LOTS of bass. I living in an apartment right now, so i dont want all the thumping, i just want clear sounding music, and good clean bass.

go for some good headphones,


or

much better quality than the speakers for the same price, you wont regret it, and consider a sound card or DAC if you want

Also, my current setup is great for the price, I got a xonar DX for $70 and a pair of senhieser hd-428s's for $50, sounds amazing, but eying some more stuff

well for that budget you wont get much in the way of speakers, I haven't found any good ones for below about 250, and those are just speakers, no amp or receiver included

I had the same question a while back and almost every single person said Klipsch Promedia 2.1. They were okay when I had them to test the sound but I still find the CA-3602 to be the best sound quality under $150.

I got a set of Promedia 2.1's off eBay for like 70 shipped. Had a blown fuse for the left side speaker, easy and cheap fix. I really like them.

it would be very helpfull if you could tell what kind of music you like and what you want the speakers for (ie: listening in an office or all around your home) and the bitrate of the songs you'll be listening to

These are the ones I use, had them for about a year and a 1/2 now. They're pretty good, includes 2 inputs (RCA and 3.5mm jacks) but the speaker wires are a bit short if you're planning on having the sub somewhere besides underneath your desk. Does come with a RCA to 3.5mm cable too. They do require a bit of tuning using the built-in equalizer to your tastes, but I find they work for what I need, gaming and music.
