USB-C also allows for more amps of power and a such can yield loudspeakers that are noticeably louder than is possible on a conventional Type-A USB 2.0 or 3.0 port. The updated version with a Type-C USB-C plug in the 2nd revision of Creative Labs Pebbles V2 USB-C computer speaker features a special boost switch on the back to take advantage or USB-C's increased power delivery and produce up to 8 watts of audio output. As such, USB-C speakers can be decidedly louder.

Though compact, the dual orb speaker cabinets feature a 50mm / 2 inch driver cone. Additionally, bass radiators at the back of each speaker help deliver improved bass response. And an onboard power/volume knob on one of the speakers gives you control within arm's reach.
