Nylavee RGB Computer Speakers Review
The most important feature for any speaker setup is that they sound good. With that in mind, I’m happy to state upfront that the Nylavee RGB Computer Speakers (SK400) do indeed sound good, with clear audio and just enough punch for a simple two-speaker system with no separate subwoofer unit for bass.
My computer setup is a bit unusual in that it’s centered around a nice SteelSeries Arctis 7 wireless gaming headset. It’s great for when I want to listen privately or, especially, game. As a nice bonus the little SteelSeries control box, among other features, has a 3.5mm audio output. This means I can plug in speakers and the SteelSeries will automatically switch back and forth when I power on and off the headphones, respectively. It’s incredibly convenient but does require using increasingly hard-to-find 3.5mm speakers that fit a smaller space.
I’ve been using some cheap Logitech S120s that get the job done for basic audio, but don’t have a particularly nice sound profile. That’s where these Nylavee come in. For less than $50 you get USB-powered speakers – which is more convenient versus the AC power of my previous speakers – with the aforementioned higher-quality sound profile. It won’t blow you away, but I will say that these make me reach for my headphones far less often for more casual listening.
In a further nice touch, these Nylavee speakers can switch between six RGB lighting profiles, including breathing and solid colors. It’s a simple tap on the top of the right speaker (the one with the power/volume knob) to change modes. It would be nice to have a mode that’s reactive to the audio input, but that’s probably a bit much to ask at this price point and likely something I’d personally rarely use anyway.
At about 7 inches high, 3 inches wide, and 4 inches deep these don’t take up a lot of desk space either. Overall, if you’re looking for no-fuss, basic 2.0 speakers, these are a fine choice.
