    Behringer MS20 reviews

    MS-20 - 20 Watt Digital Stereo Nearfield Monitors - Pair is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 15.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Mids and Highs, No Sub-Bass These speakers were bought to mix down drum and bass in a townhouse community without upsetting the neighbors. They exhibit fantastic mids and highs, but be mindful of the 65hz bottom end. The woofer is less than 4 (3.75) and goes ALL THE WAY DOWN TO 65hz with amazing clarity, but the response abruptly ends there (and drum and bass NEEDS to be monitored to 20hz). In an analog setup with a subwoofer or any application not needing intent monitoring of the sub-bass range, these would be an ideal solution. I was intent on using Behringer's excellent on-board DAC, and I cannot use a separate subwoofer in that configuration, and am buying the MS40s with a listed response down to 25hz, which is hopefully as true as the MS20's 65hz claim.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Value I was really pleasantly surprised by these monitors. I had been looking for an affordable set of near field monitors ...Keep in mind, they are actual near field monitors, meaning flat response, neutral bias. If you have a good mix, they sound fantastic. If your mix is off, they sound horrible. And don't be put off by the 10W per channel. They are LOUD! and have plenty of headroom which is great for mixing.Size wise, they fit neatly on my desktop and the dual input is quite handy. They look great (all my edit gear is black so they fit right in)Also, remember, these speakers are made in China. When they arrived, the left speaker was buzzing like crazy, so instead of returning them, I decided to open them up and discovered quite a bit of sawdust/woodchips inside. Once they were cleaned out, they sounded great. So be prepared...All in all, great value for the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oh WOW! Better than my Bose. Clear, crisp, uncolored. Pure sound. They are full-bodied at low volume, but you can also crank 'em.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just okay paired with Epson MovieMate 62 Bought these to use with an Epson MovieMate 62 during driveway movie nights for the kids. B&H filled order quickly. I didn't want to spend alot of money for speakers that get limited use for family movies, so I thought these were a good compromise. The sound quality is more than adequate. Since they are AC powered speakers, I thought they would be louder. In my case, I have the speakers about 20 feet in front of where the kids lounge. With the volumes full up, they were audible but definitely not loud. Set up with the Moviemate was easy. I ordered the inexpensive digital coax cables from B&H although it comes with a 6 foot cable to pair the two speakers. Overall they do the job but there is no WOW factor.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sounds great we use this in our mothers room at church so mothers can hear the sermon. THe sound is great, they are powerful enough to be heard in our 25x25ft mothers room. they have a clear sound and the sound is clearer in our mothers room than in the main sanctuary. had tehm for 3months so far and no problems at all.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for the price These aren't Yamaha NS10s, but attached to my video editing computer these are just about perfect. There's plenty of power and the DA/AD converters work very well (I'm using a TOSLINK connection). And these can get plenty loud -- and that means plenty of headroom which is important because for good editing you don't need loud.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for the money; not best for pros I wanted a pair of <$100 monitors for my bedroom for playing music from my computer. 95% of the listening is from iTunes and net radio. The other 5% is bedroom DJing. These are perfect for that. The digital inputs are a plus. If you are mastering serious music or vocal production, you'll want something with better response and more punch. But for computer audio with rich sound, these are great.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product for good price Behringer's MS-20 Monitors are fairly powerful. Simple setup, both analog and digital outs, and good bass response make them reasonable for a small studio. If you're out to recreate Electric Ladyland, these probably aren't the monitors for you. If you're out to convert you garage into a home studio, it would likely be worth considering them.
