Creative Pebble V2 USB Powered Desktop Speakers Review

First off, I would like to give a huge thanks to Creative for sending me the Pebble V2 to review! This review is kind of ironic because I was using a Bluetooth speaker as my desktop speaker. And let me start by saying I was getting really tired of having to recharge that speaker. So when I knew I was getting a set of the Pebble V2s to review I was a little excited to say the least. We all know how lame built in monitor speakers can be and how sound bars and systems can be a little much for just some simple work tasks. Sometimes all you want is some subtle music in the background. Sound has come a long way since the old days of desktop speakers. So I cant wait to see what kind of sound profile these Pebble V2s have. I am going to hook these up through my output on my monitor that way I have sound for what ever device I have going. I will also be using a wall charger rather than USB power just because I want them to work when my computer isn’t on. These speakers have a couple of cool features that we will get too, so without further delay lets get to it!

We are taking Pebble, one of our favorite 2.0 desktop speakers, and making it even better! Introducing Pebble V2, a successor to the popular Pebble speaker – we are keeping its minimalistic design, and giving it USB-C connectivity for higher power output! If you are using older computers with USB Type-A ports, not to worry, a USB-C to USB-A converter is included for you. Pebble V2 also has a built-in gain switch to help amplify your audio so you can turn up your music and it will still be nothing short of astounding.

I would like to thank Creative for providing this review sample! Let us see what they have to say about themselves on their website:
