Can do better for the price.

  • Summary: I always find small computer speakers lacking somewhere. These are no different. I heard them in a store and they sounded better than the other ones I heard, but once I got them home they seemed to Lack the bass I heard in the store

Hype

  • Summary: So I saw these at the Apple store, and wanted to give them a go at home where I could actually listen to them over some dude Face-timing his mom on the computer next to me. I get home, do some research on Amazon. Glowing reviews...Mazerati....cool product demos.

Great speakers, poor customer service

  • Summary: First the good: The speakers have excellent, clear sound. They are superb for skype, with much better clarity than my old logitechs. The bad: They only come with a 3' cable to connect the two speakers.

B&W MM-1

FrancisM, Crutchfield
23 August 2012
  • Summary: Great highs and mids which are very clear and spatially full. It is definitely, and quite disappointingly, lacking in low frequencies, even for classical and jazz.. The system would benefit greatly with a sub or the ability to add sub, or a more substantial woofer.

Nice Sound - Not much Bass

Speaker Now or Forever Hold Your Piece, Crutchfield
3 May 2012
  • Summary: The speakers are beautiful and sound great in the high and mid ranges BUT they have very limited bass which is very unsatisfying. Paired with a decent subwoofer it would be ideal but the option is not available with my computer.

Another perspective on the MM-1 speakers

  • Summary: Okay, I know these speakers get a lot of love here. If you've been reading the other reviews and are trying to decide whether they're worth their considerable cost, let me offer another perspective.

Compared with Klipsch Promedia 2.1

Amazon Customer, Amazon
22 May 2011
  • Summary: Ok, so I just got these and also the Klipsch Promedia 2.1 and did extensive comparison testing using all kind of music on these two using both the miniplug and the usb plug on the MM-1s. Here's the skinny: MM-1s Very nice, clear, detailed sound, from the highs to the lows.

Sexy look, sound is just OK

  • Summary: I'm a mid-level audiophile, and I tested as many powered 2.0 speakers that I could find to replace my broken (by the way, excellent sound on the Klipsch but the quality isn't so great).

3.5 stars

  • Summary: I REALLY wanted the BW to be fantastic, and to significantly outperform my current traveling speakers, the Bose MusicMonitor. They do outperform the Bose Musicmonitor, but not significantly. (Yes, this is a subjective term.

Need to be significantly improved to justify premium price

Snoopy, Amazon

  • Summary: Having recently purchased the Creative GigaWorks T20 Series II for my laptop from Amazon, I am able to do a direct comparison with the MM-1 speakers which I also own. The good points with regards to the MM-1's are that for near field listening, they are very good. Build quality is superb.
