Audio manufacturer Altec Lansing has revealed a new set of speakers designed for plugging into your computer or laptop. The VS4621 offers a pair of drivers and a subwoofer that deliver 2.1 audio.

The speakers feature down-firing 3-inch mid-range drivers, which aim soundwaves downward onto a hard surface. Those soundwaves then bounce off evenly before spreading around the room. There's also two 1-inch microdrivers in each channel, which deliver the treble.

On the floor, there's a 6.5-inch side-firing, long-throw woofer providing the bass, and there's the option to fine-tune the bass or the treble, should you so desire. If you have an MP3 player or anything else that can output to a 3.5mm jack, you can also plug that into an auxiliary slot for listening through the speakers.

The Altec Lansing VS4621 will be available from 20 April from a bunch of places, including Amazon, Staples, Play and Maplin. It's yours for £60.
