Summary: Garbage for the price, Wouldn't consider these when you can get the JBL LSR305 (pair) for only $200 by an authorized dealer if you look around. I demoed the MM1, dont get me wrong the mid range is great, treble is okay, and the sub bass is muffled.
Summary: Loud, static hiss doomed these speakers for me. I run a silent computer environment and at 3-4 feet away, I can easily hear the static from the speakers. It is loud enough to be very annoying. I accept that all computer speakers will have some level of baseline hiss but the MM-1 is far too loud.
Output is mediocre, firmware updater doesn't play well with Windows 8

Summary: I purchased these as a replacement for my 7-year old Logitech Z-10's, which finally conked out on me. In terms of sheer volume, the MM-1's have nowhere near the output that my Z-10's had, which is disappointing, considering the price difference.
Excellent sound but problematic if repairs are needed

Summary: I have no issues with the sound, appearance, or remote control device with Bowers & Wilkins MM-1 speakers. I do not believe that my experience with them is representative - in any device there is always some possibility of malfunction. My issue is with Bowers & Wilkins' repair policy.
Summary: Bought these from Crutchfield after reading review after review of how great they were. In short, they don't live up to the hype. Mids and highs sound clear and wonderful, but they've got very little bottom end (say, below around 150Hz).
Summary: I can't really understand why such expensive and quality speakers are doing white noise when no media or music are playing. It is know that mostly all speakers have their level of low white noise when plugged, but the MM-1 can be hear from 3 feet away very easily in quiet room.
Summary: These speakers produce very good quality sound. Have had my set for around 4 years and still going strong. Remote control works well and I am mostly happy about them. However, one huge oversight by B&W is the fact they have a substantial amount of white noise/hiss when there is no music on.
Summary: Doesn't work well with El Capitan on Mac. Worked fine on Yosemite on my MacBook Pro (latest model) but after upgrading zu El Capitan I loose sound about twice a day. Have to turn the speakers off and on a few times to get sound back.
Excerpt: За 20 000 руб. я могу предложить с десяток альтернатив, которые будут звучать круче, чем MM-1. Кажется, эти колонки купят только настоящие фанаты марки, остальные же пройдут мимо. Да, звук яркий, четкий, но плоский. Нет обволакивающего стерео-эффекта. Да и заявленных 70 Вт не чувствуется совсем.
