Speakers, Headsets, Digital Pens, and Microphones at Future Shop
There’s a good chance you use your laptop or desktop computer for more than just browsing the web and word processing. Do you like to play games, watch movies, or listen to music? Would you like to use your computer to video chat with friends and family around the world? Have you ever thought about how cool it would be to record your handwritten notes and diagrams, along with audio commentary, and store them in digital form on your computer?
It’s simple to add all of this to your laptop or desktop, or improve what you already have, just by adding some computer speakers, a microphone, a headset, or a digital pen. With a wide selection of products at Future Shop, you’re sure to find a peripheral to enhance your computing experience.
Most laptop speakers will get the job done, but when you’re looking for high-quality audio for your music, movies, and games, you’ll need some dedicated computer speakers. (Desktop computers don’t come with speakers at all, so separate speakers are a must.) The variety of speakers available ranges from simple, basic speakers to full 5.1 surround sound audio systems that immerse you in stunningly sharp, realistic audio.
Headsets and Microphones
Whether you like to do video chats with your relatives in another country or you’re starting your own podcast, a microphone or mic-equipped headset is a must. These accessories will provide the clear audio quality that make you and your grandparents sound like you’re all in the same room, rather than on different continents, and will ensure your podcasts have professional quality audio.
Digital pens, also called smartpens, are an interesting technology that gives you the best of both worlds: you can jot down notes and diagrams on special paper, and the smartpen will automatically record it all so you can upload it to your computer later. Select models can even record audio and sync it with your written notes, so you can tap on a word in your notebook and the digital pen will start playing the audio that was recorded when you wrote that word down.
