    Behringer MS16 Reviews

    MS16 2-Way Active Nearfield Monitors (Pair) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 37.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Compact powered monitors for a PC.. Since getting a newer PC over a year ago, I'd been toying with the idea of checking out some better than average, but affordable speakers so I might actually start enjoying things like You Tube and other audio stuff on the internet.Somehow I wound up looking at Behringer gear, and found these..I took a chance and ordered them, and I'm glad I did; now I'm getting more enjoyment out of my PC and many of the audio things that need amplifying...these are lightweight, and good looking and just the right size with plenty of power.And it didn't break the bank...B and H had a better price than 2 or 3 other places had. I would definitely recommend these...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from More power for the buck $$$ I just bought these to substitute my JBL Pro III's. The foam on the woofers were dry rotted. I was working on a limited budget and in a hurry to find something to use while I recorded and mixed in my home studio. These have not disappointed. Solid, relatively decent bass response for the speaker size and plastic cabinets. I have yet to have to crank them more than halfway (which is LOUD) although I suspect that past that point is were some distortion will occur. Midrange is lacking just a touch of something...not sure just where though. The treble is is excellent, vibrant. The separate treble and bass controls are choice. Aside from studio monitors these make great computer speakers. Easy to set up.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Deal! I purchased these speakers to use with my Korg X50 synth at home. They have been excellent for this purpose, providing a strong lows and shimmering highs. I've used them with my mp3 player, and they produce a wonderfully clear sound. Finally, I used them for their intended purpose: Studio monitors. For this they have outperformed what I'd hoped for. In their price range, they'd be hard to beat. Some high-priced speakers may have a flatter response, but these actually do a very good job at a fraction of the cost.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Sound Purchased these based on extensive review research. I must say they provide excellent sound quality; much better that the small computer speakers I had been using. I can't believe the clarity and richness of the sounds. I am now hearing things in the music that had been lost with the smaller computer speakers. If you are looking for an enrichment to your computer music listening pleasure go pick up a pair of these - you will not regret it!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love these! I bought these to use with my audio technica turntable and also with my computer. They have exceeded my expectations. I would advise to allow them to be worn in for a couple of them to get the optimal sound out of them.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for the cost For the cost, it's hard to go wrong with these guys. Though accurate may not be the best description, they sound d*** good. Easy to transport, I use these for mobile recording to play back to musicians and also for doing any initial mixing. They are versatile and do a good job, but NOT a replacement for any good studio monitors. I recommend these for someone that needs an easily transportable pair of monitors and for video editors that need something more accurate than your typical computer speakers.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crystal clear - great for video editing These speakers are as good or better than others I have used (costing 2-3 times these) in video edit suites in the past. Give great, accurate sound with absolutely no cross talk or hum. Note: nearfield monitors serve a special purpose in representing typical sound. If you are looking for exaggerated bass for listening to music or something, these might not be the right speakers for you.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Studio Monitor Speakers I use these in my small film/video editing suite, and are perfect for monitoring sound. My budget for speakers was double what I paid for these, but found these to be superior to most in the higher price range. I love everything about these. Straight out of the box, you'll recognize the detailed craftsmanship of true German audiophiles.
