For some, form and function are both important – it’s not about one or the other, and for those people, the Hercules XPS101 2.1 Speaker System may be of interest. Hercules is already well known for their digital audio systems and Webcams, and the company’s newest line of PC speakers feature a pair of curved, black speakers for your desk surface and a shiny black subwoofer to go under your desk. All of the components come in piano black with a lacquered finish. Also included with the system is a wired remote that allows you to tweak volume, bass, treble, and other speaker settings. Hercules promises that the XPS101 delivers high-end sound to match the attractive design, and the speakers feature an auxiliary jack so you can connect a digital music player or game console as a secondary audio source, and a 3.5mm headphone jack so you can connect headphones for more private listening. The XPS101 will be available later this month, retailing for $249.99.
