Last updated on September 25th, 2020 at 10:57 am

While close to half the KitGuru audience listen to audio on a headset, the rest of you love speakers. There’s something about the chest-rattling drive from a solid bass set up that is hard to replace with a pair of headphones. Then there’s the statement of style. Check our shortlist of the best speakers we’ve seen to date.

Edifier S3000 Pro 2.0

Edifier has a new flagship speaker - the S3000 Pro 2.0. With 6.5in aluminium alloy diaphragm bass drivers alongside planar diaphragm tweeters, the S3000 Pro promises great sound and comes priced to match, with a £589 asking price...

AirPulse A100 Active Speakers (Phil Jones Design)

Edifier's AirPulse A100 speakers are exceptionally well made, with a distinctive red cabinet design. They feature ribbon tweeters, ensuring better transient response and extended frequency range compared to a traditional tweeter setup, and overall you'd be hard pressed to find similar quality in other bookshelf-sized speakers at this price point. They simply offer an exceptionally clean and clear sound which makes the A100 a joy to use.

Razer Nommo Pro 2.1 Speakers

On top of that, there's plenty of connectivity options including USB, analogue, optical and Bluetooth 4.2, alongside a single control pod that acts as a volume wheel.

AirPulse A200 Speakers (Phil Jones Design)

The A200s are definitely a darker, more 'fun' sounding 2.0 speaker system - with plenty of emphasis on the bass and mid-range, while the treble rolls off quickly. This may not appeal to everyone, but we simply loved the mid-range presentation offered by these speakers. For those looking for a speaker system to simply enjoy music with (instead of listening analytically) the A200s come highly recommended.
