Not all audio companies that make USB powered speakers make USB *ONLY* speakers for PC or Mac laptop or desktop computers. Most USB loudspeakers have a SEPARATE 1/8" audio cable, so you really have to shop carefully to insure you're buying an all-digital 1-cable solution. But we've done that for you, as all items featured on this page are single-cable solutions.

Far more common, you'll find the majority of USB only loudspeakers available still use a conventional rectangular USB Type-A plug. You can use a USB-A to USB-C adapter if needed to use on any desktop or laptop computer old or new. These speakers tend to max out at about 3 Watts of sound power.

USB-C Only PC speakers

We're seeing the emergence of the new slim and oblong Type-C USB-C / Thunderbolt 3 connectors on a few of the latest USB only computer speaker systems. These can deliver more milliamps, producing 3 or more times the wattage of early generation USB 1.1/2.0/3.0 connection ports. You can use these on older ports with a USB-C to USB-A adapter, but they won't be as loud as they would be natively on new USB-C ports.
