PC Speakers, $100-$200

So I already have a decent headset, corsair 1500's, and my dad decided he wanted his JBL PRO speakers back, so...I am speakerless.

I considered the idea of re-using some BOSE 401 floor-standing speakers we have, but they are huge, and with my desk layout(i share a desk with another PC), there would be no where to really put them, and there's no room for a receiver really, so I'm thinking I'm just going to stick with PC speakers rather than go the Home Theater Audio route.

Also, I don't really have room for a 5.1 setup either, so I'm sticking with 2.1. These speakers will be used mostly for gaming, with occasional music and movies.

So, here are two sets of speakers I was considering:

Logitech Speaker System Z623:

Corsair Gaming Audio Series SP2500:

Any thoughts on the two? The corsair looks a bit better and I'd be willing to spend the extra on it if it's worth it.

Any other sets I should consider? I've heard good about the Harmon Kardon Soundsticks...

EDIT - Forgot to add, is a sound card a good purchase to go with these, or will on-board be fine? I have on board and a really old Turtle Beach Montego DDL Wave soundcard.

  1. It's a little over our budget but the Bose companion 3 speakers are pretty nice. They also don't sound boomy when the base is on full. I saw them as a demo at Costco once and ended up buying them.
  2. I like my bose pc speakers.
    Bose® Companion® 3 Series II Multimedia Speaker System - 2.1 they were like 200 ish

    Bose does make a $100 set of pc speakers that should fit your limited space.

    Of your original 2 options I would go with the Corsair speakers.
  3. I've heard that newer BOSE speakers are good, but severely overpriced.

    But I haven't looked into these specific ones, maybe I'll see if they have them at my costco or best buy and listen to them.

    After many more hours of research, I've decided to go with the Corsair SP2500's, and will be purchasing either an Asus Xonar DX or D1 to go with them.
