How to upgrade the sound of your Mac 

You've got a great Mac, like colorful iMac or an M1 Pro/Max MacBook Pro. Or you may even have a 4K monitor for stunning visuals. But what about sound? 

Your Mac will sound better and be louder if you connect a dedicated set of speakers to it, rather than relying on the internal speakers. While super simple to install, external speakers can make your favorite movies, music, video games, podcasts, and more come to life. Any of the best Mac speakers listed above are going to help you turn your Mac up to 11.

It's hard not to love the HomePod mini. Its compact size and sleek looks are a bonus; Apple engineering puts out some fantastic sound. Of course, it's much more than a speaker. It's a whole-home assistant, virtually the embodiment of Siri. In fact, I probably use mine more often as a Siri device than I use it as a speaker. You can buy just one or get multiple HomePod minis for a room (or an entire home) filled with sound. Since in comes in five different colors, you're sure to find one that fits your decor to perfection.

On the other hand, if you're just looking for something compact, portable, and inexpensive to boost your sound, I'd go with the NUBWO Portable Bluetooth Speaker. This little cutie comes in a few different colors to go with your decor, and it looks sleek next to your Mac.
