Summary: Lovely speakers. The sound is crisp and clear. It is transparent, so as to say. If you are looking for highly shaded sound, such as those boosting base sounds etc. this is not that pair. Howevery, if you are looking for tight sound, these speakers are there. Also, there is no software to work with. Just plug them in and they are ready to go. You can select output using audio midi controls in mac, to select between built in sound and these speakers.
Summary: - Why you bought it It's the high end of PC-Fi Speaker on my desk. - What you like most about it Good sound. Including USB sound card inside. Remote control. - Whether or not you would buy the product again I have a plan to buy one for B&W headphone.

Summary: Let me start off by saying that there are two things about me relevant to this review; I never review products, and high quality audio has always been important to me. I have mostly been a Bose fanatic, buying their products because, well it's Bose isn't it? Oh my have I ever been wrong! These B&W MM-1's completely triumph over any Bose or similar mainstream 'premium price' speaker due to their full range sound replication and impeccable build quality.

Summary: I don't often write reviews. I read about computer speakers extensively before purchasing these. Don't waste your time reading (though it can diminish some of the angst in paying $500 for computer speakers). This experience is like no other. You will hear music like you never have before. Some experiences in life cannot be described, even by a skilled scribe. One cannot analyze great poetry, great music, or great sex.
Summary: I almost never do reviews but there is so much conflicting information out there on these that I felt compelled to add my two cents to the mix. First and foremost the sound quality. It's why we buy them right? These sound great. Better than great. My first reaction was "Holy S***!!". I couldn't believe how great these sound. These are desktop speakers. I sit in the sweet spot. The sound is rich and the bass goes deep enough that I never feel it's lacking.
Summary: They are small but powerful. And the sound is very clear. I bought them for my husbands computer but we hooked them up to our in-laws TV while visiting and the sound filled the entire family room. Very high quality sound. I love their simple design as well.
Summary: Great sound from small speakers. Easy to set up. Priced lower than by retail companies. Product arrived ahead of schedule. Bowers and Wilkens speakers produce great sound with good, not overpowering bass. They are perfect for at computer listening.
