Best budget computer speakers
While the Logitech Z313 speakers do not impress with their sound quality, the low price makes it an excellent upgrade to built-in screen speakers.
Advantage: Very inexpensive, easy to configure, includes a subwoofer
Disadvantages: Mediocre sound quality
The Logitech Z313 speakers may not measure up to more expensive speakers when it comes to sound performance, but they do compensate for any sound issues in value. With such an affordable price, the Z313s are de facto choices for budget computers. Although they do not reach the quality heights of the Klipsch, the low price and simple setup of the Z313s make them worth considering.
For the price, you get a 2.1 system, which means that there are stereo speakers on your desk and a subwoofer below. Everything is wired, but with only three wires between each of the components, cable management should not be too difficult.
In terms of sound quality, the Z313s are best summed up with “good value”. The satellite speakers are pretty thin and the subwoofer does not reach too deep into the lows. The system also does not get loud with a total power of 25 watts (five for each satellite and 15 for the subwoofer).
The errors appear most when you try to play music loudly through the speakers. Logitech tries to pop the sound that comes out of the satellites when the subwoofer gets loud, which gives a shaky effect when listening to bass-heavy music at high volumes. These speakers are best used when listening to low volume music or, for example, watching YouTube videos.
Despite their sound limitations, as a replacement for your monitor’s built-in speakers, the Z313s are good, especially for how cheap they are. However, if you are interested in high quality sound or just want to browse music, you need a little more.
