Quality speakers that perform well in a variety of scenarios; built-in DAC could be better though.
are digital, the stepping is smooth so volume swells and bass adjustments aren’t jerky. The LED lights double up as an indicator to show the level of volume and bass selected; the left speaker shows the bass levels while the right speaker shows volume. It’s a pretty elegant and visual way to see what adjustments you’ve made, even out of the corner of your eye.
Considering how clean it looks, the Nommo Chroma that if you place them on a monitor stand, but it seems like an extra purchase that you don’t necessarily need.
So how� does� it sound? There’s actually two parts to this answer. With the Nommo Chroma, you can either use the built-in DAC or the aux-in as the source. The obvious choice is that you should use the USB connection for the best possible experience, no? Well yes, and, no.
With the USB connection, the Nommo handles most genres of music, as well as environmentally engaging games like� PUBG �well, but it’s also not the best representation of what the speakers can do. The builtin DAC is a limiting factor, especially when it comes to music. I really am nit-picking here, but the separation could be better, and there’s a slight hint of brittleness in places.

For $229, the Razer Nommo Chroma is on the pricier side for fairly basic speakers. Essentially, you’re paying for the sleek, compact form factor and it’s ability to sound big and boomy without needing a large subwoofer added to the clutter. You can also save some money by going the non-Chroma route, which knocks a cool $60 off the price to forgo the lights and built-in DAC.
Speakers re directly forward, which means they sound best at ear level.
These minimalist speakers have only two physical knobs for controlling volume and bass.
