I've been producing music both at home and in professional studios for many years and can honestly say these speakers work surprisingly well in the small home studio environment. OK, so I have a pair of serious JBL monitors too, but for everyday work on Cubase and even for rough mixing on my PowerBook or PC, they do a very creditable job.
The clarity and stereo reproduction is excellent, they're pretty loud and produce very crisp sounds. The tone controls aren't the most dynamic and yes, as most other reviewers mention, the bass doesn't boom, but once again, they're perfectly good enough for most home studio needs. And the truth is that when it comes to final mixing, I don't even use the JBLs but always reach for my Sennheiser headphones instead. Or go and reproduce the whole thing in a pro studio. So it's horses for courses.
In my view, the Behringer MS16s are your best option unless you can afford to spend £300++ and go for some professional studio monitors. But do you really need them for home use, or is it just vanity like having a never-gigged Marshall stack in your bedroom? I'll share a salutary lesson I was given some years ago. I proudly took my latest CD into a record producer's studio which was filled with enough equipment to raise the Titanic with monitors the size of monoliths. But the producer took me out to his car where he played my CD through his stereo so he could hear it in the same way as others would. That's why you'll also find the best studios have a standard radio sitting somewhere on their desk so they can play the final mix through it - and you'll be surprised how many times a mix gets changed because things have been overproduced and over-EQ'd to the point of getting lost when it comes to playback 'back in the real world'!
Remember, a great song will always stand out. And these speakers will certainly not stand in the way of you producing great sounding music and excellent demos. So yes, I would recommend them for desktop home studios.
I've had a pair of Behringer MS16 speakers connected to a Joggler running Squeezeplay OS in the kitchen for the last 2 years and they have performed well. Best sound for my particular location was with a touch down on the bass control, a touch up on the treble. Good punchy speakers with way too much volume if we wanted it. However, about a month ago the sound started deteriorating with a decrease in volume and an increase in hum and distortion on both channels. So, I opened up the main speaker (5 screws) and first surprise was that the power switch is on the secondary of the transformer, so the transformer is always energised. Not a real problem but it does mean that the speakers are always drawing power, even when 'off'. We have always switched these off at the mains so no issue, but if left on it would be running up the 'leccy bill by a small amount. Second surprise was the main amplifier board was connected to the auxilliary board containing the volume and filter controls by a multi-way cable which was unscreened - An obvious entry point for hum. Moving the cable changed the amount of pickup so this could be what some users are experiencing, depending on their particular build. The cable is soldered at one end and plugged at the other, and I found that moving the cable restored proper operation of my speakers so think that the connection here was at fault. It proved impossible to remove the amplifier board to solder the connections as this was mounted rock-solid to the back of the case so I slightly bent the exposed pins and re-plugged to provide a firmer connection, reassembled the unit and all is back to normal. All in all, I'm very pleased with the Behringers but think the design could be improved by fitting a 'proper' on-off switch, screening the signal cables and using a more secure connector to the control panel. There again, refinement costs money.
Despite being called a 'Monitor System' and being labelled as 'Monitor Speakers', these are *not* studio monitor-grade speakers. However, if you are not using them for music production, what they are is actually a really good pair of computer speakers for not a lot of cash.
Paired with a decent discrete sound card, or even an on-board sound card on a higher-end motherboard, these speakers will beat most offerings from your traditional companies (Logitech, Creative, etc.).
The construction is plastic and, while some people may prefer wooden cabinets, this does not detract from these speakers in the slightest. The bass port is on the front of these speakers, meaning you can have them closer to the wall if you use them on a desk or on wall mounts. Many 3-4" speakers have rear bass ports, which can cause a 'boomy' effect when placed closed to the wall.
If you're using these for a computer for listening to music or watching movies, then you'll want to dial in the bass and treble dials (I set mine to just under 3 o'clock treble, and just under 2 o'clock bass) and then download a computer program called Equalizer APO and another called PEACE. This will allow you to adjust the balance between the frequency bands.
I find the bass on these a little muddy, but the rest of the spectrum is fairly decent for the price. I find them to be, again for the price paid, very clear and leagues ahead of any traditional PC speaker I have used when it comes to listening to music.
I got these for an excellent price on Amazon, and I am extremely happy with my purchase.
Ho un altro paio di questo modello che funziona bene da ca 7 anni. Quelle ricevute recentemente suonano un po' "vuote": fortunatamente si possono aprire svitando le 5 viti che le tengono insieme. Sgradita sorpresa: all'interno sono totalmente VUOTE, vale a dire senza alcuna coibentazione. Kazzoni di cinesi! Comunque, essendo esperto di queste cose (posseggo un impianto hi-fi ragguardevole) le ho "trattate" con piccole strisce di pannelli bituminosi ( si usano sempre nelle casse di pregio) ed ora suonano come si deve. Tanto per vostra informazione.
I can't claim to be an audiophile and my ears are getting on in years, as is the rest of me, but I have been extremely pleased with these powered speakers. I needed some speakers for my computer and spend hours researching reviews of 'computer speakers'. Most of them seemed to be adequate but a bit disappointing unless you spent a small fortune. Eventually I discoved these Behringer MS16 powered monitor speakers and the reviews were extremely favourable so I ordered them, whilst still wondering if they would be good enough. When they arrived I was delighted. They give excellent sound when playing music. or games, and have virtually zero hum when no sound or music is being pushed through them. Connecting is simple enough. There is one cable with a mini plug, to plug into your computer/phone/TV headphone socket, at one end and the other end is two phone plugs which connect into the back of the main speaker. Another wire plugs into the back of the main speaker and also into the second speaker to connect the two speakers. This lead is about 2 metres long. Finally plug in the UK plug and you are done. Overall I would throughly reccommend them to anyone who would like to like to have powered speakers for their TV, phone or computer. I am very pleased with my purchase and will probably buy a second set for my TV rather than buying a TV soundbar which I suspect would cost a lot more than these but not be anything like as good as these are for providing clear voices, rumbly basses and an excellent stereo effect.
Was sceptical with such a low price, and they kinda feel a bit cheap out of the box, but they do the job great! Ive been mixing single-mic drum recordings (so pretty low quality) with drumless multiracks to record covers and it was such a chore on my old speakers - spending days tweaking, exporting, transferring, and listening on different devices. One afternoon with these and I got the mix and master sounding great across multiple outputs - speakers, phone, t.v., car stereo. Advice - the speakers come with bass and treble volume knobs. It seems as if the default position should be with them in the middle pointing up, not bottom left. There is a "click" in the middle and they just sound perfect. I had them all the way down at first and was v disappointed.
For my laptop, I set out investigating a set of speakers with controls on the front for ease of access, and with a built in amp. The idea was to avoid using PC speakers because even the expensive ones are generally crap. In recent times I am also shunning 2.1 and 5.1 style systems because in the same guise I tend to feel these are widely and exceptionally substandard offerings generally too.
Glad I did so, for the price these are a thousand fold better than any PC speakers I have ever used. I ummed, I aahed. I finally bit the bullet and now I'm very pleased. They sound just great.
If you want genuinely high quality Hi Fi speakers, then your looking at least £200 outside the relevant price bracket. I wanted cheap, but decent. These are exactly that, cheap but thoroughly decent.
