    So, I have a set of Logitech speakers I've had maybe more or less around four years, and recently it's beginning to develop an odd and annoying static/crackle when when I adjust the volume and listen to music with the volume halfway up. At first I thought it was my headphones, tested them on various devices, nope, they're even older than the speakers and still work great. It's almost like a faint humming/slight crackling and it's very annoying, I can hear it even when no sound is playing, volume max or all the way down, it's always there. I tried unplugging it, plugging it back in, tried plugging it in the front audio port on my computer tower, no dice. My previous Logitech speakers lasted ten years before they finally bit the dust, but four years, I expected maybe one or two more, you know?

    That said, I don't need anything extravagant, but at the same time, I don't want to go super cheap either, so a middle ground, maybe $80-90 max, as to what brands are really good, I don't know.

    Features I'm looking for:

    2.1 with a decent subwoofer (80-120 W) with bass control
    Headphone jack that doesn't get loose over time (which I don't think is helping)
    Has a button to power on instead of a control knob that clicks on

    Essentially, a set of speakers that doesn't have the issues my current model, which
    is the Logitech Z523

    Maybe something similar to this but I'm not sure plonking down 120 bucks for speakers would be prudent, as it is a bit steep, thought I'd run this by first :P

    I really just want good speakers, but don't break the bank either, thanks ^_^

    80-90$ Max? Sheesh if you were willing to Splurge I would recommend Some Audio engine A2+'s but that is WAY beyond your budget.

    I would just get another set of Logitech's.

    Have you tried cleaning your jack on the speakers? The male end, you can get oils and dirt on there making static or one speaker working, then not.
