Desktop speakers are, generally, underpowered affairs. After all, it rarely makes sense to blast your eardrums into oblivion while working on that website layout or sorting all the marketing letters from legit messages in your inbox. Still, a nice pair of speakers will be great when you want to listen to your Spotify playlist while hard at work or to check out that funny clip you got via email. The Nocs NS2 Air Monitors should prove ideal for the job.
With each box measuring just 5.5 x 4.3 x 6.3 inches and weighing 3 kg, it’s as compact as any standard pair of desktop speakers, ensuring you probably have enough space in your desk for them right this very minute. That doesn’t just make it easy to find a place for them in your work area, you should have a relatively easy time placing it elsewhere around the house or office, too.
Despite the compact stature, the Nocs NS2 Air Monitors packs some serious audio hardware: 32-bit digital signal processor, 3-inch Kevlar woofers with dual magnets, and 0.75-inch silk dome tweeter that performs at a peak power of 70W. Hand-built cabinet is constructed from MDF, decked in a rubber coating for a durable and lasting finish. Designed for connoisseurs of Apple’s products, it features integrated Airplay support, allowing you to stream audio from your Mac, iPad, iPhone or PC with iTunes 10.2.2 over WiFi. There’s also a 3.5mm jack for more conventional enjoyment of your tunes.
The Nocs NS2 Air Monitors are available now, priced at $449.
