Usage & Final Thoughts
I have been using the Razer Nommo Chroma speakers for a few weeks now. As I mentioned I am moving from another 2.0 speaker system so it was not a massive change. Typically when I am in my office working on reviews, posting news, or just generally on my computer I listen to music via speakers. I really only use a headset when I am gaming, but I decided to do some gaming using these speakers as well.
Listening to music and watching videos on YouTube using the speakers was a real joy. Sitting at my desk these speakers are more than loud enough, but if I would happen to get up, take some product photos, or work across the room I did not feel like I had to turn the speakers up all that much. So I would say for most typical size rooms (office, bedroom, etc) these speakers will definitely get the job done.
The sound quality is really good for 2.0 system. Previously I was using the Logitech MX Sound 2.0 speakers and these are far more crisp. I can hear and point out things in different songs I did not hear before. Also depending on what you are listening to you can pump up the bass. Say I am listening to a hip-hop song I’ll likely pump the bass up, but if I am listening to something like EDM I might turn it down a bit. I really like that the controls are on the speaker base, it just makes is so easy to adjust things. I decided to turn the speakers all the way up to see if there was any distortion, which is was not all that much, but the bass did feel a little empty, which is because there is not a dedicated subwoofer. For people who do like a lot of bass these speakers definitely has some of the best I’ve heard out of a 2.0 system. When it came to gaming the sound was very clear and again I could adjust the levels without having to leave my game.
Like everything these days we do have RGB lighting, which I think is a good thing. We spend so much time making sure our PC Setup looks great and adding some cool lights will add to your setup. Razer’s Synapse software is some of the best out there and makes it easy to configure the lighting as well as change the EQ settings on the speakers.
Right now you can pick these speakers up for $135 at our favorite online retailer. If RGB isn’t your thing the non-Chroma version which is not USB is $99. Overall ThinkComputers gives the Razer Nommo Chroma Speakers a 9 out of 10 score.
