  3. Looking for decent 2.1 speaker set up.
2 years ago#1
So my current speakers are showing their age a little bit recently. I'm looking for a decent 2.1 set, preferably with a headphone jack on the satellite or control. Wireless would be really nice, but it's not a necessity.

I'm using them for gaming, music and films, so I'm not looking for anything specific in that sense, just a good all-round speaker set.

Price isn't much of an issue, and I'm in the UK if it matters.

I could also do with a new headset, if anyone has any advice on that too. I don't want anything over-the top expensive there though. I'd tried an Astro A40 set before and ended up sending them back as I didn't feel they were beneficial over most other headsets I'd tried. Definitely not for their price tag!

Thanks for any help.

Creative T20 maybe? I've had them for a couple months now and they're pretty nice, and not too expensive.

I'm not too sure if your really looking to go this cheap on a pair of 2.1 speakers or not TC, but, these are the speakers that I am currently using:

I am very satisfied with them too.

Yeah I was looking at probably a bit more expensive than that. I mean, I wouldn't turn down something cheaper if it also has quality. I'm a believer of "you get what you pay for" though.

I had been looking at these:

They're ~120 on Amazon, and from what I've read seem to be pretty good. I don't know if there's anything better around the same price mark though?

Now i do not know from experience, as i dont have these and tbh dont know much about this sort of thing, but the Corsair SP2500s are supposed to be really great.

Check them out and look for some reviews, see what you think.
