speak up!

by Grace Bonney

When it comes to all things audio, I relinquish any decision-making to our home’s resident audiophile, Aaron. My husband buys headphones like I buy paper goods (frequently), so when I built this office desktop speaker roundup for my guest series on MyLifeScoop, I felt like I was encroaching on his turf. Rather than attempting to capture all of the speakers he would pick, I chose to focus instead on what I love: desktop speakers as stylish as they are functional. This morning I’m sharing 25 of my favorite speakers that promise to rescue your desktop from a lifetime of boring black boxes. xo, grace

Suggested For You


  • Aaron’s annual guys’ stuff roundup isn’t too far away anyway — early December, right? I guess we can patiently wait for his two cents!

  • I’m in love with the dog speakers, although the black orbs are pretty rad – only hope I can convince my techie husband… He’s so far unwilling to compromise function for form, hence the ug black monsters marring our otherwise crisp white living room!

  • wow, those MUJi speakers are the best i’ve seen in a long time! To bad they’re only for computers, though the idea of wrapping up our hifi stereoset speakers in cardboard is kind of tempting now :)
