Buying Guide

Quality

The quality of the speakers is the #1 priority. Nothing else matters if the audio from the speakers doesn't sound good so this is the most important factor by far.

However, we also considered quality of the materials as well and how durable they were. There is no point in purchasing expensive speakers if they don't last long so this is another very important part.

Power

Power supplements quality well. Quality doesn't mean much if you can't hear it, but it certainly boosts the audio experience when pure, crystal clear sound is able to be as loud as you want it.

We judged this factor by not only how loud the speakers can get, but how loud it can get while maintaining quality. 

Style

A bi​g thing to consider is the visual aspect of speaker. Sure, this won't actually affect the sound that it produces, but having great, but unattractive speakers isn't always worth it. Although this isn't the number one factor, it is something important to consider.
