JBL Jembe 2.0 Multimedia Speakers
There is a lot to like about these speakers from JBL, but you need to be sure it will work with where you plan on using your laptop. The two speakers give you excellent 2.0 sound, which means it has two satellites but no subwoofer. This setup can play loudly and offers great audio quality thanks to 6 watts of power to each satellite. With that tremendous sound, however, you also end up with two larger speakers than some other models on the market.
You certainly cannot just put these speakers in your pocket and go, but they’re still easy to transport since they are less than six inches tall. You also need a power cord and outlet to run these speakers, so you cannot use them while sitting outside under a tree or on a road trip. As long as you plan on using your laptop near an outlet and do not need optimal portability, then these are a great option. Some owners of these speakers have complained about them turning off during use, but as long as you keep your laptop master volume up, this should not be an issue. The metal grills on these speakers help protect the sound drivers and you get a one-year warranty on them.
