External Speakers for Desktop

My parents just purchased a new HP desktop, but they need some external speakers. Any reccomendations? They don't need high quality sound. Mainly they get emails with some audio in them. Looking for cost effective options for them and thought you guys could help. TIA

Already tried antifreeze and a burning aids tree. No luck.

You don't need high quality and you want cost effective? You just want some sound and that's it? Then go to walmart or target and buy their cheapies. They make sound just fine.

Pick up a set of LG speakers. You can get a little 3 piece stereo set up for $30. If they don't need or want anything specific, then just stick with a name brand, spend what you wanna spend and call it a day.

This is a good thread to ask something I've been wondering about for a good while... am I the only noticing that laptop speakers are CRAP now?

Years ago I could get a laptop that halfway rocked out when I listened to music, but the last two I've had including this HP is CRAP.

Good stock speakers have died out, why is that... is it just to sell the aftermarket plug-in stuff?

It's the same exact issue plaguing LED TV's: The slim profiles don't allow for speaker depth and size. Every LED TV in our home has a sound bar and sub woofer because the TV sound is quiet and thin. Same for a laptop.

It will continue to get worse, as there's no way to accurately respresent sound when a computer or TV is centimeters thick.

Actually, I have Focal Solo 6 Be's with the matching subwoofer, which clocks in right at about $5k.

I bought these (except mine are silver) for 275 almost a decade ago and they are still one of the best sounding sets I've heard.

If you're looking for something very basic, but with good sound - give these a shot.
