It’s time to review the Creative Pebble v2 Desktop Speakers.
Here is how Creative are describing the Pebble v2:
“We are taking Pebble, one of our favorite 2.0 desktop speakers, and making it even better! Introducing Pebble V2, a successor to the popular Pebble speaker – we are keeping its minimalistic design, and giving it USB-C connectivity for higher power output! If you are using older computers with USB Type-A ports, not to worry, a USB-C to USB-A converter is included for you. Pebble V2 also has a built-in gain switch to help amplify your audio so you can turn up your music and it will still be nothing short of astounding.’
What’s in the box?
The box contains the speakers and a USB-C to USB-A dongle, and some paperwork.
A Closer Look
The Pebble v2 desktop speakers are small and lightweight so they don’t take up much room on your desk.
Connecting them to your computer is simply a case of plugging in the audio cable and then connecting the USB-C for power. If your computer doesn’t have a USB-C port on don’t worry, Creative have included a USB-C to USB-A converter in the box, so just use that.
Once you’ve done that all you need to do in turn the volume dial to switch on and select your desired volume. There is also a gain switch you can use to activate high gain mode, if you wish, which provides peak power up to 16W.
The speakers themselves are angled to 45 degrees so that the sound is aimed more at where your ears are rather then around your mid section like normal desktop speakers. This really adds to the experience and was a good design choice!
The sound quality on the Pebble v2 is very good and if you are looking for a reasonably priced set of desktop speakers then you should look (or rather listen) no further!
The Creative Pebble v2 Desktop Speakers are available now priced around £22.99.
