When you play your favorite games, it's natural to listen to the game audio in all its glory. Gaming computer speakers help you achieve just that. These let you enjoy immersive audio, and the best part is that you do not have to wear restrictive headphones or earphones.

Top 5 Computer Speakers for Gaming

Computer speakers are not just limited to game audio. You can watch videos or movies and get to enjoy every detail. And yes, you can also play with the built-in lighting that comes with the speakers.

If you want to keep your gaming headsets a rest, here are some of the best computer speakers for gaming. But before that,

1. Logitech G560 LightSync

The Logitech G560 LightSync is one of the inexpensive speakers on the list and yet brings a slew of features to the table. It bundles a sub-woofer and RGB lightning. On top of that, it delivers impressive performance with rich and immersive sound. From vocals to music and rich sound effects, you'll be to hear them all in detail.

The folks at Tom's Guide opines that the bass is strong that you feel the effects in your gut. Woah, right?

The design of these PC speakers is simple and minimalistic. They are small and roundish, and you can easily place them beside your gaming monitor, and they will blend seamlessly with the rest of your accessories. Since the G560 Lightsync is wired, you will have to focus a lot on cable management, especially if you are one for clean, clutter-free looks.

At the same time, the lighting system completes the circle. There are four distinct lighting zones that you can configure using the Logitech Gaming Software. There are a few customization options, and you can tweak the surround sound settings or the EQ settings.

One of the demerits of this speaker is that it's tightly wound to the subwoofer, and there is no way to turn off the subwoofer without switching off the speakers. However, for the price, the G560 Lightsync brings a compelling bargain to the table.

2. Creative Pebble Plus 2.1

The Creative Pebble Plus 2.1 addresses one of the major limitations of the Logitech Lightsync—it lets you turn off the sub-woofer. Cool, right? And for the price, Pebble Plus 2.1 delivers a clear and rich sound. The build is solid, and the affordable price tag makes it a compelling speaker.

The speakers are circular, while the subwoofer has the typical rectangular shape. As we all know, it's the minor details that play a big role in speakers. In this case, it's the drivers' 45-degree angle, which ensures that the audio hits your ears straight.

Like the one above, you'll have a large mess of cable to sort out. There's no built-in RGB lighting.

As noted earlier, the audio is clear and crisp. The folks at PC Mag tested the speakers and found it to deliver a praiseworthy low-end bass for the 'Silent Shout' song. As you may already know, quite a few speakers fail to deliver the right bass for low-bass songs.

3. Razer Nommo Chroma Gaming Speakers

The Razer Nommo Chroma looks a lot different from conventional computer speakers, all thanks to its spot-light-like appearance. And if you are someone who loves to give a distinctive look to your gaming desk (and do not want to compromise on sound quality), you can't go wrong with the Nommo Chroma.

Again, these are wired computer speakers. There's no separate subwoofer, yet it delivers gaming-oriented audio with heavy bass. The sound is clear, and whether it's the game conversations or the intense audio, you will be able to listen to all in their glory. The long cylindrical design helps in the proper resonance of the bass.

These gaming speakers are simple plug-and-play devices. The drivers install on their own, and you needn't waste precious time hunting for the right software.

Like most gaming accessories, these Razer speakers also bundle RGB lights. There are a few customization options, and you can switch between colors, light effects, and speed.

4. Razer Leviathan Gaming and Music Sound Bar

Another Razer soundbar is the one named Leviathan. It's not a conventional speaker. Instead, it's a soundbar. The highlight of this product is that it can interface directly with gaming consoles like Xbox One and the Sony PlayStation. More importantly, this Leviathan delivers a decent audio quality with heavy bass, all thanks to the subwoofer.

Unlike the speakers above, there are a few additional connectivity options. For example, you can connect your phone to the soundbar via Bluetooth.

One of the main strengths of the Razer Leviathan is its subwoofer. It helps in delivering an intense and thumby bass and makes the game audio come alive. It's a versatile soundbar, and you can also use it to listen to music or watch movies. However, the movie audio is a tad underwhelming.

However, the Razer Leviathan is expensive and costs a little more than its counterparts above. If you are looking for a versatile speaker and love the thump of bass, then it's worth considering.

5. LG Ultragear GP9

For the best possible sound experience while gaming, you can consider the LG Ultragear GP9 soundbar. The highlight of this soundbar is its portable form factor. It is designed for gaming and lets you chat with your teammates via the built-in mic. Woah, right?

If you must know, none of the speakers above comes with built-in mics. The mic has intelligent noise-cancellation tech that distinguishes your voice from the rest of the game audio. And thus, your voice will be transmitted without any noise or loss of clarity.

The main highlight of the Ultragear GP9 is the built-in battery. It's powered by a 2,600 mAh battery and can last up to 5 hours on a single charge. And when needed, you can plug it into the power outlet. And yes, you can also connect your phone via Bluetooth.

The Ultragear GP9 delivers strong audio. Game audio sounds punchy and immersive. And whenever you need to tone it down, you can always lower it via the large knob at the top.

But this LG gaming speaker is expensive. But as we said above, if you want to splurge on gaming accessories, then it's the best pick.

Game On!

Game audio is equally important as the gameplay. And when the audio is not at par with the rest of your system, it takes away the magic of gaming. Unless you are into hard-core competitive gaming, these computer speakers prove to be a great buy. The best part is that most of them are easily affordable and deliver a good value for the price.

So, which one of these will you buy?
