Anyone in the market for a great pair of desktop speakers knows that it can be tough to find a quality pair without breaking the bank. There are a lot of cheap options out there, but they usually sacrifice sound quality for the sake of price. The Monoprice DT-3BT multimedia speakers offer a happy medium, providing impressive sound quality and features at a very affordable price.
The Nitty-Gritty behind the DT-3BT’s Quality
The DT-3BTs come in a heavy, high-quality ported enclosure that minimizes vibration and resonance. They each have 3″ polypropylene cone high-excursion woofers and 3/4″ silk dome tweeters. The frequency response is 75Hz ~ 20kHz. They’re also individually amplified, so each speaker and driver gets its own 20 watts of power. In terms of inputs, they have RCA, 3.5mm TRS, and balanced 1/4″ TRS. They also feature Bluetooth connectivity for wireless connectivity. And if you want to use them for personal listening, there’s a 3.5mm headphone jack.

Perfect for your PC, TV, or game console
I was really impressed with the sound quality of these speakers. They have great highs, mids, and lows. The bass is tight and well-balanced with the rest of the frequencies. I tested them out with a variety of music genres, and they sounded great no matter what I threw at them. I also watched some movies and played some video games on my PC, and the audio performance was excellent across the board. My three-year-old also enjoyed the “big sound” (as he called it) while watching his go-to Disney+ shows.
Bluetooth or Wired: The Choice is Yours
The DT-3BTs are incredibly easy to set up—just plug them in and you’re good to go. But if you want to get more advanced, there’s still plenty of flexibility thanks to the various input options. And the Bluetooth functionality is great for wirelessly connecting your phone or other devices so you can play music or audio from any source you want.
Priced Well Within Reach
At only $99, the Monoprice DT-3BT multimedia speakers are an absolute steal. You’d be hard-pressed to find another pair of speakers with this level of sound quality and features at such an affordable price. Besides being great for an immersive gaming experience, the speakers would be a great starter monitor set for aspiring musicians. I wish they had been around when I was younger and forging my singer/songwriter path in college!
If you’re looking for a great pair of affordable desktop speakers, the Monoprice DT-3BTs are an excellent option. They offer impressive sound quality, easy setup, and plenty of input/output options. And at only $99, they certainly won’t break the bank.
