Output is mediocre, firmware updater doesn't play well with Windows 8

J. A. Thomas, Amazon
7 May 2014
  • 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

Easton Reader "Easton Reader", Amazon
25 February 2014
  • 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.

White noise

Jean-Philippe C, Apple Store
4 November 2011
  • 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: i bought these for my office at my production building as i loved the design. a few days later i was in an electronics store and took a listen to the Bose system 5 as it was almost the same price. the Bose comes with an subwoofer which sits on the floor under my desk while the B&O are only desk top.

Not Worth the Money

Scott N., Crutchfield
19 December 2010
  • 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).

Only Half Done Job

WJ, Apple Store

  • Summary: This is a really good speaker set for computers. The reason is that it contains an excellent DAC. So, if you are going to use the set only with computers, it is worth the price. However, if you are also going to use ipod, you have to use the audio input jack.

Great Sounding Speakers with an annoying problem

hectorthedog, Amazon
28 February 2011
  • 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.

User Review

Malosiev Arthur, Yandex

  • 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.
  • Pros: Дизайн
  • Cons: Плоский звук
