Overall, I am impressed with the Microlab B-77 speakers. They perform very well, delivering high volumes of accurate sound in a small package. However, they are not perfect.
The bass response isn’t quite as impactful as one would hope and turning up the bass dial on the back of the speaker can result in a muddier sound with subdued mid tones. To be fair, the B-77 speakers lack a dedicated driver for bass- something that can be found on the much larger (and more expensive) Solo 8Cs. In addition, there is no subwoofer either so all things considered, these speakers perform about as well as you could expect.
While the B-77 speakers are not the largest I have had on my desk, if space is an issue for you, then you might be better off with a smaller pair of satellite speakers that you could tuck behind your monitor. Logitech has some popular options in its Z-series of speaker systems.
Now pricing and availability can be scarce inside of the UK. Right now some Amazon resellers have them in stock starting at £54.99 and going all the way up to £74.99. Alternatively, Scan has them in stock for £38.84, which I feel is a pretty good price for speakers of this quality.

- Decent sound quality.
- Plenty of volume.
- Solid build quality.
- Bass and Treble dials are not easily reachable.
- Lacks the bass response that a 2.1 system would provide.
- Will take up quite a bit of desk space.
KitGuru Says: If you can grab them for under £50, then I would say that the Microlab B-77 speakers are worth buying.
