What are the different ways to derive the best sound experience while listening to music on the computer?

Music is a form of expression. It has the ability to uplift your mood and calm you down. Many of us like to listen to music in the background while using the computer or laptop.

In-built speakers

Many desktop computers and laptops come with in-built speakers you can use to listen to music. However, most of the time, the clarity offered by the default speaker is not the best. The sound may be really low and when maximised, it may get patchy. If you are someone who is okay with listening to music at low volume and don’t expect the best clarity, the n the in-built speakers should be enough.

External/Bluetooth speaker

More often than not, many people buy external speakers or Bluetooth speakers to listen to music or watch videos on the computer. An external speaker is usually connected to the computer using the port in it, while a Bluetooth speaker can be connected using either Bluetooth or auxiliary (aux) cable.

These speakers can also be used with other devices such as the television.
