Finding quality speakers for your portable audio device, computer, tv, or gaming system can be tough, especially when you’re on a budget. When I decided to upgrade my sound system on my computer, I really only had about $30 to deal with, but I still wanted something decent…so I immediately began looking at Logitech’s offerings. Logitech has a long history of making affordable priced, quality computer accessories, and I have had good experience with them in the past. After extensive research, I decided to purchase the S220 2.1 system, at just below $25 from Amazon.com.
My very first impression was, “Wow, these are kinda small!” Even though the set includes two satellite speakers with immersive sound as well as sub woofer, everything fit into a box that just barely filled up my small backpack. Once I got the system unpacked and on to my desk, I was impressed by its sleek looks and the cool wired remote that gives easy access to volume control and headphone/mic jacks. Of course, it wouldn’t matter how good it looked if it didn’t sound good, so I wasted no time setting it up…which, by the way, was super easy.
Once I actually got some tunes pumping through the system, I was blown away at what I had received for under $25. The bass on this little system won’t get you kicked out of your apartment, but it’s snappy enough to enjoy your favorite jazz songs, and it’s got plenty of power to enhance your gaming and DVD watching too. The highs are crisp and clear, and midrange ain’t too shabby. In terms of volume, it might not be great for a large living room, but the Logitech S220 has plenty of juice for filling your dorm room, home office, or small den with better-than-decent quality sound.
The Bottom Line
The Logitech S220 2.1 Speaker System offers a hard to beat combination of affordable sound quality, attractive design, and unique features. Starting at under $25 at Amazon.com, it’s a must buy for the college student looking for a sound system on a budget.
