I tried these USB-powered computer speakers — and they're a steal right now at $15

A cheap and easy fix for the crummy speakers built into your monitor or laptop.

Here's a pro tip: The speakers built into your laptop or monitor aren't very good. That means you're cheating your ears every time you watch a YouTube video, join a Zoom call, play relaxing background music and so on. Good news: an inexpensive pair of computer speakers can make a huge difference. And right now you can score the surprisingly versatile Jeecoo M20 USB/Bluetooth speakers for just $14.99. That's after clipping the 10%-off coupon and then applying promo code XS8V9YYG at checkout. Note that this price is available only for Amazon Prime subscribers.

A great improvement over your laptop or monitor speakers, plus they glow pretty colors to boot. Note that only Prime subscribers will get this price with the on-page coupon and discount code.

At first blush, the M20 looks like a soundbar for your PC. That is indeed one possible configuration: These are indeed two separate speakers (joined by a cord), but they can slot together to become one. If you have a crowded desk and the only space available is beneath your monitor, this is a great option.

Otherwise, pull them apart for proper stereo separation. They can sit flat or stand upright; either way you get nifty glowing LEDs in your choice of several colors or a rolling gradient. To cycle through the options, you just press the large dial atop the right speaker. That dial also controls volume, of course.

To use these with your PC, you just plug them into a USB port — no drivers necessary. That port also supplies power. If you want to use these as Bluetooth speakers, you'll still need USB power; Jeecoo doesn't include an AC adapter. But you can use just about any USB AC plug you've got lying around, or even a power bank if you want to pair them with, say, a phone or tablet while traveling.

OK, but how do they sound? Let's be honest: No one is going to confuse these for, say, Klipsch ProMedia 2.0, for many years the gold standard in computer speakers. But are they decent? Pretty good, even? Yes! And they're a vast improvement over any laptop or monitor speakers, just by virtue of being larger and pointed in the right direction.

And did I mention they're $15? Here's hoping you're able to jump on this deal while it lasts!
