If you find the area around your computer too cluttered with wires and cables, then you may consider looking into buying wireless computer speakers.
With wireless speakers, there is a base that transmits electrical signals to the amplifier. These may either be infrared (IR) signals, or radio frequency (RF) signals.
When using IR systems, you have to make sure that there is nothing in between the transmitters and receivers. Almost all physical materials obstruct IR transmission, so when using IR equipment, it is important to place them in such a way that the signals sent and received will not be absorbed or interrupted by obstacles.
There are also certain barriers that obstruct RF signals, but the range of materials that cause RF interruption is smaller. Common examples of these materials are cement, electronic devices, metals, and plastic.
The amplifier is usually part of the speakers themselves. When the speakers receive the signals, they turn them into sound waves and transmit them to us.
Here is a detailed comparison of two high-rated wireless computer speakers: Cables Unlimited (SPK-VELO-001) 2 Wireless Speakers, and the Sony SRS-RF930RK 1 Wireless Speaker.
