Best Computer Speakers in 2021
Updated 13-02-2021 – Mia Cohen
A good audio setup can elevate your day-to-day computer usage to another level and this is why we made a list of some of the best computer speakers for the UK. Sure, you can get a great monitor to have a better visual experience but most people ignore a good pair of speakers when purchasing their new computers. So if you are feeling the need for rich sound, impactful bass, and clearer dialogues, you’ve come to the right place.
There are a ton of great computer speakers for the UK, and it can be daunting to select the ones best for you. We tried to include a wide variety of different speakers with varying price points so everyone can find a setup that suits their needs. Some people only need basic audio to get by, some need to fill the whole room with immersive sound and some just need great speakers for gaming.
The best computer speakers are only best if you use them. However, if you always have company over or your significant other is a light sleeper, we recommend that you also invest in a good pair of headphones. This way you won’t be deprived of good audio and no one else will be disturbed. However, if you don’t have any of those restraints, go all in and enjoy a better soundstage that is immersive and impactful.

1 Edifier S3000Pro Hi Res Audio
The Edifier S3000Pro Hi Res Audio speakers get loud, like really loud. However, despite being loud the quality of the sound never drops. This is thanks to several factors, the pretty wooden enclosure, the 6.5-inch aluminum drivers, 107 mm planar tweeters, and 256 Watts of RMS power. The speakers are exceptional at providing an expansive sound stage.
On the connectivity side, there are a lot of options available as well, from standards wired ones to Bluetooth. Even the Bluetooth on this unit supports higher quality Qualcomm aptX HD codec. We like how the right and left speakers are connected wirelessly, which makes placing them super easy to do. There is even an infrared remote controller included that gives you almost every option in your palm. There are 4 already constructed equalizer profiles available, you can switch between them with ease.

The large soundbar is fitted with a tri-amplified, 5-driver design that is amazing when it comes to big sounds. Each driver also comes with its own chamber and can deliver crisp and clear audio.

This is a 5.1 channel surround sound for watching movies or playing video games.

10 Creative Sound BlasterX Kratos
This one is for gamers who want to play video games on their computers. The Creative Sound BlasterX Kratos has punchy explosions and the gunfire sounds phenomenal on it. Not to say that it isn’t great when it comes to watching movies either because it is. However, we wouldn’t recommend it if you were only watching movies or listening to the news, you’d be better off getting one of the less pricey options for that.
However, if you are looking for a good sounding 2.1 speaker system, the Creative Sound BlasterX Kratos has you covered. Despite the flashy and “gamery” sounding name, the actual speakers and subwoofer are fairly muted in design. The only splash of color other than black is red and that too very restrained.
- Good quality explosive bass
- The speakers sound great during video games
- Work well with action-heavy movies as well
