I have been looking at portable bluetooth speakers as a more compact option to use as PC speakers via AUX in and interested to see if anyone else might be doing similar or have any recommendations.
Trying to find something compact with respectable sound for music and games (I have headphones if I want better sound). I've seen there are some PC soundbars available, but these can be long and don't always seem to rate well for sound quality vs price. Obviously I'm not expecting amazing immersive sound that you'd get with some 2.1+ PC speaker sets.
For this purpose, the speakers will need AUX in and the option to disable auto-off. AUX seems to be ditched from some newer models of bluetooth speakers, so it's starting to limit my options.
I've been looking at Bose SoundLink Color II, Anker Soundcore Flare 1, JBL Charge or Flip Essential, maybe even the IKEA Eneby (it's not clear if these have AUX in and might be a bit large).
Does anyone have experience with any of these speakers? Any recommendations for which might be viable as a PC speaker?
The Anker Soundcore Flare 1 looks great for the price, but not sure how it stacks up against the others for sound quality, if it's better paying the extra for the Bose SoundLink Color II?
