JBL Duet II speakers that look like silver footballs
The Duets are desktop speaker systems for a computer, laptop, MP3 player or anything that uses a 3.5mm audio jack. The speakers feature convenient volume and power controls, a small footprint and great sound. There’s no subwoofer and the drivers are modest, so there’s a predictable lack of deep bass response; the overall audio performance, however, is balanced, with nice clarity in the mid-to-high frequency. The speakers look interesting, and you shouldn’t expect any extra features like Bass or Treble controls. The cables are all hardwired, which is a major drawback when looking for custom solutions. The JBL Duet II features a Phoenix SE Driver Technology, 6 Watts per satellite speaker, 80Hz-20kHz frequency response and it will set you back by $100.
