MSRP: 13.45 € (excl. VAT) / US$ 15.45
Street Price: Not listed

On July 9th 2010, Arctic Cooling launched the Arctic Sound S111, their very first 2.0 speakers. These speakers are marketed mainly towards laptop users. Not only are they compact and portable, the Arctic Sound S111 seeks to enhance the overall multimedia experience by offering better sound quality over the stock speakers of the laptop.

Seeing as they are USB-powered, the Arctic Sound S111 speakers should not add to cable clutter because they do not require an AC adapter. According to Arctic Cooling, pairing these speakers with a USB power supply, such as the Arctic C1 Mobile, would make an excellent sound system for the person on the go.

With its small price tag of 13.45 € (excl. VAT) / US$ 15.45, the Arctic Sound S111 looks to be quite a bargain. Does it deliver in terms of sound quality? Read on to find out.
