Not all laptop speakers are created equal. Companies sometimes skip on high quality audio in order to keep the overall cost of the laptop down. To get around this issue, the good people at GOgroove are currently having a sale on an external laptop speaker so that you can clip to your computer allowing you to improve the audio. It’s called the GOgroove SonaVERSE USB soundbar and it’s on sale for only $18 via Best Buy’s marketplace. It’s normally $24 (which still isn’t bad) but they’re making it that much easier to get yourself a little something useful that doesn’t require more than $20.
The speaker has a frequency range of 100Hz – 20kHz and, as the name implies, plugs into your computer via the USB port. Doing this redirects the audio from the speakers or the audio jack, through the USB allowing for a cleaner experience. Probably the coolest thing about it is that it doesn’t have to be a separate stand-alone speaker and can actually be clamped to your laptop in various orientations.
The soundbar is compatible with most, if not all laptops and manufacturers including Dell, Asus, HP, and even MacBooks. As long as your laptop has a screen where you can clip the speaker to then this will most likely work for you. It comes with a 3-year warranty and even free shipping so that’s even more money that stays in your pocket.
It has some decent reviews over on Amazon getting a rating of 3.8 out of 5 stars. For the price, it could be considered a pretty solid bang for your buck product. It weighs about 8 ounces and has an audio cable of 3 feet so you might need to tie the excess wire, but that’s about the biggest issue you should have. If you’re tired of your stock speakers (and have $20 to spare) make sure to pick one up before the deals up.
