Summary: While the speakers provide a fantastic, full sound, the bass is just lacking. If I could add a subwoofer, they would be great. I tried them at home, at work and in a conference room - same response from everyone that listened with me: Sounds great but bass 'punch' is missing.
Summary: As a previous owner of B&W products, I was expecting the best in sound quality from these mini speakers. Have no fear, these little things provide crystal clear sound. Bass is more than OK (some reviewers complain about their "lack of bass"). Sweet spot is quite wide so as long as you position them side by side from your monitor, you will get the best sound around. Great speakers, especially for office use!
Cons: As all the others have mentioned.... PRICE. Still its B&W, so do not expect cheap products from them. Also, their DAC can handle ONLY 16bit files higer rez files become truncated.... their Society of sound files come at 24 bit / 48 / 96 khz.
Great for B&W fans as long as you're not looking for big bass at low volume

Summary: I'm a big fan of the sound of B&W speakers, and these do not disappoint. They are accurate and detailed and the soundstage is big for such a small pair of speakers. The USB support works very well, too. The reason this is a 4/5 star rating is that, while they have a full sound at higher volumes, I wish they had a bit more bass at the lower volumes I usually use.
Summary: The B&W MM1s are extremely impressive for the amount of sound and range they throw from such a small footprint. They sound very modern in a tasteful way. Scooped EQ with extended highs and lows, and a massive and immersive soundstage that almost has a pseudo surround sound feel to it. For the size, I was impressed with their bass response, but I am used to a 2-channel setup and rarely listen with a subwoofer. There are no tone or DSP controls.
Pros: small and light, large frequency range, massive soundstage, good for multimedia sources
Cons: hookup on bottom of unit seems as though it could become unsound with repeated break-down and set-up, borderline flashy and modern tone and eq
