We've been blasting the best PC speakers all day and all night to find out if they've got what it takes to earn a place on our desks. Sure the best gaming headsets will give you a more intimate immersion, but there's nothing like blasting everyone in earshot with the best PC speakers. Whether it's the thrum of your engine in F1 22 or the crack of the Kraber unleashing hell in Apex Legends, the best PC speakers will fill the entire room with your favourite game's resonant goodness.

Deciding on the best PC speakers isn't the simplest task. First you need to figure out how much space you have to spare on your desk. It'll give you an idea of the kind of speaker footprint that's feasible for your setup, or whether you need to get tidying in anticipation. If you have the space under your desk then you should go for the typical 2.1, left/right speaker setup with a subwoofer on the floor. For our money, the best PC speakers are the Logitech G560, they deliver great sound, and look pretty funky while doing it, too.

But there's also PC soundbars, which have made a punchy comeback recently that puts excellent depth of sound and positional audio on your desk, but stays neatly tucked under your monitor. Some even come with a subwoofer to really get the bass going. Razer even offers a soundbar with head-tracking and beamforming to produce headset-like audio quality, the Leviathan V2 Pro, but it's so pricey we couldn't in earnest recommend you actually buy one.

The best PC speakers aren't always cheap. Thankfully, though, I've earmarked a couple of decent budget options during my extensive testing. These are my recommendations for loud, reliable PC speakers and soundbars for your desktop.
