Portable laptop speaker review

Updated on August 18, 2014

I love listening to music on my laptop!

If you love listening to music on your laptop, you deserve the best set of speakers you can afford! Me, I love listening to music on my PC! I am always listening to YouTube videos of various artists on my laptop. But sometimes your regular old factory speakers just don't cut it.

So, for my birthday last year I received a $25 Amazon gift card. And guess what I spent it on?

I bought this Logitech Z205 Portable Computer Speaker. You can see my review just below.

[Image is a photo of me using my laptop, with the speaker attached]

This is the speaker I bought - My Logitech Z205 Laptop Speaker really enhances the sound of the music I listen to

My speaker connects incredibly easily: you just plug it into one of your USB ports - and voila! You have amazing sound... all for under $30.

My Logitech speaker clips easily onto the top of my laptop, so the sound is focused directly towards me. Boy does it make a big difference having this speaker. I can actually hear the bass in the songs now!

This speaker works with Windows and Mac computers. It also has a volume up/volume down button on top of the speaker so you don't have to open any software to adjust the volume.

For under $30 I couldn't be happier with this laptop speaker.


This is what my laptop speaker looks like, attached to my laptop! - If you look closely, you can see both speakers.

Please ignore the smudges.

How does this sound on your current speakers?

This is Elvis Presley singing the Simon and Garfunkel song "Bridge Over Troubled Water."

If this doesn't sound amazing on your current speakers, then perhaps it is time to upgrade.

Four minutes of Elvis... and one of the best songs ever written. After hearing Elvis sing his song in Las Vegas, Paul Simon is reported to have said that everyone else recording the tune "might as well all give up now."

And one more song to test your speakers with!

Yes, I know this was originally a song by the Rolling Stones - but their version wouldn't take your speakers near their limits like this one would. So here is Guns N' Roses singing the Stones' song "Sympathy For The Devil."

Now try your speakers with this song

This sounds amazing on my speakers! This is " What Would You Say" by Dave Matthews Band.

So how did your speakers sound?

      I normally don't use other than what my PC has but my son attaches 3000W Intex speaker at times and there is a lot of noise.

      It'd be nice to hear Elvis with a little more bass, I think. Hello Santa... are you listening?
