When planning your gaming PC setup, don’t be quick to get powered bookshelf speakers or headphones, get a soundbar. Headphones are great, but if you’re a marathon gamer who spends many hours in front of the screen, they will frustrate you real fast. They will squish your ears, get hot, and make you very uncomfortable.
On the other hand, bookshelf speakers are harder to set up than soundbars and more expensive. If you want a simple setup that will work well for music and movies, they won’t do a great job. Soundbars are easier to set up than bookshelf speakers.
TaoTronics soundbars take up very little space on your desk but deliver big, powerful sound. They are more compact than home theater soundbars but work the same way. Get one and say goodbye to annoying outboard speakers.
Fed up with your PC’s poor sound quality? Get a TaoTronics soundbar. Whether you use your PC for work, to watch movies, or for gaming, the sound quality affects your enjoyment. A soundbar will change your listening experience.
Here are some of the best computer soundbars for your home or office setup.

Top 5 Features to Consider When Buying a Soundbar
1. Center Channel
The center channel ensures voices sound loud, clear, and distinct. It does most of the heavy lifting where voices are concerned. Most of the action and conversations in a movie are reproduced by the center channel.
Most soundbars equipped with center channels are named 3.1- or 5.1- channel soundbars. This means they have a subwoofer. Many budget soundbars don’t have the center channel.
2. 3D Audio
If you’ve bought new audio equipment in the last few years, you’ve probably come across the term “3D Audio.” 3D audio reproduces sound the way we hear it in the real world. It’s nothing unlike the mono and stereo audio we’re accustomed to. 3D Audio makes sound come from every direction, including above.
DTS:X, Dolby Atmos, and MPEG-H are the three main 3D audio standards. They use object-based technologies to render sound, giving the impression of it surrounding you. 3D Audio enhances music, movies, gaming, and VR/AR experiences. But your device’s built-in speakers must support 3D Audio for you to enjoy its immersive benefits.
3. Night and Voice-Enhancement Modes
If you don’t live alone and don’t want to wake up your housemates as you watch late-night movies or play games, get a soundbar with a night mode. The mode compresses the dynamic range of the audio, allowing you to hear the action without ear-popping gunshots or room-shaking explosions.
A voice-enhancement mode enhances whisper-quiet dialog, letting you hear everything that’s said. Soundbars with night and voice-enhancement modes have buttons for both features.
4. Support for Media Casting Standards
If you want to stream high-resolution audio from your PC to your new soundbar via Wi-Fi, get one that supports your favorite media casting standard—Chromecast, AirPlay 2, or Roku Streaming.
Many mid-range and high-end soundbars support Google’s Chromecast and Apple’s AirPlay 2 standard. A few soundbars support both protocols. The two allow for multi-room audio setups. This means you can play music on other Chromecast or AirPlay-enabled devices in other rooms.
5. A Simple Design
If you’re planning to place your new soundbar in front of your PC, check how tall it is. If it’s a little too tall, it may block the bottom edge of your PC. The good news is most soundbar manufacturers design their units with a low profile.
