Conceived by world-renowned designer, Neil Poulton, the LaCie Bobourg USB Speakers are a stylish smart pair, perfect for your computer. Hidden underneath one of the speakers is a built-in USB cable that connects to your computer. With this tidy setup, your computer both powers the speakers and carries digital audio to them. The USB connection ensures that your audio is digital so that you don't experience the same loss or distortion of signal that can happen with analog audio. Since the speakers are plug-and-play, you can start using them as soon as they're connected. No installation software needed. In delivering your sound, each speaker utilizes a high-excursion, neodymium 2" driver, and for managing that sound, these speakers feature two volume touch buttons. If you're looking for a minimal-chic set of computer speakers, Neal Poulton and LaCie just might have you covered.
