If you ever listen to audio from your computer, the speakers that came built into you machine simply won’t do. In fact, even the cheapest set of desktop speakers will blow away the best ones built into a laptop.

We’ve previously polled our readers on the best gaming speakers, and Lifehacker ran a Hive Five on desktop speaker sets all the way back in 2012, but it seems like enough time has passed that it’s worth asking again. So check out the rules below, then head down to the comments to nominate your pick.

1) Your nomination should contain:

  • The specific name of the product, not just a brand or series. Why you think this item is the best. A link where the item can be purchased. An image of the item.

2) Vote by starring someone else’s nomination.

3) Please do not duplicate nominations.
