If you are not satisfied with the speaker that is included with Mac Studio, you can find plenty of alternatives. These are the best speakers you can buy right now.
Apple’s Mac Studio is one of the best Macs out there right now, offering the M1 Ultra chip, macOS Ventura, and more. It is expected that this desktop computer does not provide a mouse, keyboard, or display. So you will have to get them separately. And although it includes a built-in speaker, many users may not be satisfied with its performance. After all, dedicated speakers tend to perform better when compared to built-in speakers. To help you out, we’ve put together a list of the best Mac Studio speakers currently available.
Apple HomePod mini
The Apple HomePod Mini is an affordable Siri-enabled speaker that offers plenty of neat smart features, including temperature and humidity monitoring. However, you should only get one if you are in the Apple ecosystem.
Creative Pebble Speakers 2.0
The best value
If you want to add a basic set of stereo speakers to your setup, you can’t go wrong with the Creative Pebble. They can be powered using USB, offer a clean design, and provide a surprisingly good audio experience for the price.
Sony SRS-XB23 EXTRA BASS
Better water resistance
This Sony wireless speaker comes with IP67 water resistance, so it will not only clutter your desk with wires, but it will likely survive liquid spills. Its battery lasts up to 12 hours on a single charge.
The best smart speaker
Sonos speakers are pricey, but they provide excellent stereo sound, offer a number of features, and can be used either independently or in a pair. Sonos Era 100 is a small speaker that you can put anywhere.
Logitech G560 Lightsync Speakers
Logitech’s 2.1 speakers deliver great sound, especially if you play a lot of action games, thanks to a dedicated subwoofer and RGB lighting. However, it does not support virtual surround sound on Mac Studio.
JBL is a great brand of Bluetooth speakers, and the Boombox is one of their best products. You can use it through both wired and wireless connections, and it offers an IPX7 resistance rating, so you can take it with you to any gathering.
Apple HomePod 2
HomePod 2 comes with a big body, loud sound, wide touchscreen, and more. It seamlessly connects to other Apple devices and offers room temperature and humidity sensors.
Amazon Basics USB Plug-n-Play Speakers
And very affordable
If you want to spend as little as possible, Amazon Basics has a solid pair of USB speakers. It comes in two colors – black and silver – and still looks elegant and luxurious with blue lighting.
Our picks for the best Mac Studio speakers
As our list reveals, there are a lot of different dumb and smart speakers that work with Mac Studio. So no matter your budget or needs, you’ll likely find an option or two. I recommend the Apple HomePod Mini because not only does it work with Mac Studio wirelessly, but it also connects to other Apple devices flawlessly. So you can use it with your iPhone and iPad, as well as with your Mac. The larger HomePod 2 is also great for those looking to spend more for a louder sound. Though, if you are an active Android phone user, you may want to avoid HomePods altogether, as they are only supported on Apple products.
If you don’t like the HomePod, there are plenty of other different options for your Mac Studio. You have very affordable ones from Amazon Basics and Creative. Don’t expect these to look as cool as the high-end options though. If you are looking for a better audio experience, you can look into Sonos and JBL speakers. Not to mention, there are portable picks from Sony and JBL for those who want to use these speakers with other devices on the go.
Apple Mac Studio
Mac Studio packs either the Apple M1 Max chip or the powerful M1 Ultra chip. It’s only available in silver and starts at $1,999.
