Having the best stereo speakers for your gaming rig might be just the thing it needs to give you the immersive experience you are looking for. If I were to show you a scene from a horror movie without the sound and then with it, you would certainly feel the difference. Same applies to the games you play — the more sensors you engage in the experience, the more immersed you get into it.
While headphones provide great sound for gaming, sometimes you might wanna have a break. It is really tiring to wear headphones all the time, and that is why you might want speakers. The best stereo speakers for gaming will let you not only hear the sound but also feel it, bringing gaming to the next level. Unfortunately, it is not easy to find the best stereo speakers for gaming. Here are our top 5 picks:
Logic has always been our favorite when it comes to stereo audio systems, and that includes for gaming too. The Z623 is a 2.1-channel THX-certified speaker system that precisely tuned to the exact audio parameters required for the ultimate experience. It accurately produces a crisp-clear sound for your games, or movies and music.
The Z623 delivers 400W (200W RMS) of peak power while staying simultaneously connected to three of your devices, allowing you to quickly switch between each other. It has optical, headphone jack (3.5mm) and RCA inputs. The power switch, as well as the volume and bass controls, are located on the right satellite speaker.
The Genius SW-G2.1 is, as its model name might suggest you, is a 2.1-channel audio system with a total power output of 45W RMS. It comes in four different colors and looks amazing!
Not only does it look amazing, but it also sounds just great! the SW-G2.1 features an ultra-rigid MDF wooden cabinet subwoofer that makes the bass deep and rich. The satellites have an amazing design and sound crisp-clear. The volume and bass are adjustable. It features dual 3.5mm headphones input jacks.
Maybe you aren’t looking for something very powerful on the bass side. The Edifier R1700BT might be just the right solution for you. They stand more on the premium side, as they are quite pricey but it is well worth it. They come with unique Digital Signal processing and Dynamic range Control that limit the distortion almost entirely!
If cables are not your thing, then you would gladly enjoy the Bluetooth pairing capability. If not, then the standard 3.5mm to RCA cable will do just fine (included). The device has a small remote, tiny enough to fit in your pocket. The total RMS power output is 66W.
The Cyber Acoustics CA-3810 is greatly optimized to fill your room with a rich and deep bass. It comes with 80 W of peak power (40 RMS) with an excellent acoustic optimization — perfect for rooms of any size. The controls are located on a standalone control pod and, unfortunately, it isn’t wireless. You can connect it via a 3.5mm headphone jack. The contorl pod has a headphone jack output if you ever want to listen in your headphones without having to change cables on your device.
The GOgroove BassPULSE comes with a great design, available in three colors, as well as a wireless and 5.1-channel models. It features 40W of peak power (20 RMS), so it falls under the more quiet category. It is not as great acoustically optimized as the Logitech, but it definitely does more than good. Besides its stunning illuminated colorful satellites, don’t expect it to be anything special in terms of sound and loudness.
