I'm thinking about picking up a set of speakers for my dorm room (Budget <$100). At this point I have a pair of Sennheiser HD 280s that I use while I'm in the room, but with my glasses and the clamping force that the phones exert, they get to be uncomfortable after some time. I also have Sleek Audio SA-6s that I use while on the go, which do not have this problem, but can be uncomfortable during long sessions due to moisture/heat buildup inside my ear.
A little about my computer setup and room. At almost all times I have no open USB ports on my laptop (Dell Precision m4400), although I could purchase a hub if necessary. The desk that I have is fairly small by my standards, and I can only put the speakers on a shelf above my laptop if I want the speakers to actually be to my left and right. The shelf is a foot deep at best, but has no ceiling (besides that of the room). I'm not to concerned about having a sub as long as the speakers have decent bass, but having a sub is always a bonus. I use my computer to watch movies, play games, as well as of course, listening to music. Again my budget is $100.
