    A versatile 2-way stereo speaker system for home studio of personal monitoring.

    The BEHRINGER MS16 is a compact 2-way stereo speaker system for home studio or multimedia applications and instrument or vocal monitoring.

    2 high-power amplifiers drive the 4'' woofers and the high-resolution tweeters. The front-mounted volume control and individual bass and treble controls make accurate sound adjustments a breeze.

    Magnetic shielding and compact size make these speakers perfect for placement near video monitors or computer displays.

    Features
    • Compact stereo speaker system ideally suited for home studios, multimedia applications, keyboard and vocal monitoring etc.
    • Powerful 4" woofers and high-resolution tweeters powered by 2 - 8 watt amplifiers

      I can't see why people were complaining there was no bass response when I first set them up I had them on my coffee table and a cup of water on a coaster, the bass was so loud and just on an apple loop that it was vibrating the water. If you can EQ it yourself (granted it takes a while) then you should be fine. This is a great start to a studio and you won't be dissapointed. Don't use it one time like these people have and say oh it has no sound or bass, because I turned the volume up rolled the bass about 5 and the trebles from 5-8 and it sounded just like the models were supposed to so I can't complain, hope it helps, it's a good price point for a good quality piece of studio equipment.
      It has everything you need, i was even surprised when it came with the cables to hook it up to my Macbook. I figured I would have to spend more money to get the right cables, so I was greatly appreciative. I wanted a good set of speakers to record and monitor through Logic Pro becuase the labtop speakers were just not very good at all. Get both stereo speakers, two mixed inputs (say computer and Ipod) and it has dedicated EQ and volume on the unit which is a plus.
      They are friggin heavy!! Way more than I expected, German's have always made good speakers and these are no exception, big heavy magnets and a great build quality, no complaints so far.
      Awesome, all I needed was a little more punch to monitor my bass response on the songs I'm working on and make sure the EQ was right where I wanted it to be. I was surprised when it inspired me to do even more and I was able to tweak the EQ to exactly where I wanted it, so to me it did everything I asked it to and more, it gets loud, really loud and the cool thing is if your playing say the drums and bass as a loop, then they come more out of the right speaker and the mids (guitar) that I'm playing comes out fo the left. Everything is clear and easy to hear it's perfect, I can't imagine any more expensive one doing more.

      They are inexpensive speakers, what did I expect? I'll admit I was disappointed by the lack of bass response, but others have mentioned it, so I should have been ready for that. These are basically plastic computer speakers, so if you're looking for more than that, do a little more shopping.

        These monitors are an excellent value. Sound is very decent. I bought these to play and record from my laptop. These will do fine for what I am needing them for.

          Very versatile little monitors and a very good value as well. I replaced a set of Roland M-8s which were virtually identical to these which I used for 16 years. I have found this type of product to be very useful in recording, practice, and even performance in smaller, quieter venues.

          Comments about Behringer MS16 Active Personal Monitor System:

          Very good value. For their size: strong bass, clean highs, balanced mid-range. If using with a computer you have to know how to adjust your computer settings to "external speakers" to get the correct sound. I have no complaints and would buy these again for my uses: boosting my computer's sound, mixing a high-quality amateur album, listening to my mp3 player. There is some background hiss from the power source, but I don't notice it once the music plays.

            Before purchasing i read the reviews and noticed a few bad comments concerning bass response.I mainly record Reggae,dub and ska. I am not having a problem with bass and those are bass heavy genres. They are clear and tight sounding ,weather i am using bass guitar or synth generated bass sounds ,these speakers can handle it!!
            For the cost versus quality, i would endorse these as a great addition to any home studio setup.

                I travel on business a lot. I needed a small, light, quality, sound system to attach to my computer to watch netflix movies, to listen to web casts, and to attach to my I pod while I'm in a hotel room. This is perfect. I have plenty of bigger, heavier, better quality sound equipment at home...but that won't fit in my suitcase.

                Amazing sound quality from these Monitors

                Comments about Behringer MS16 Active Personal Monitor System:

                I'm extremely happy with these monitors. They sound fantastic.
                These monitors have features that typically appear in more expensive monitors.
                The sound quality from these monitors is simply amazing.
                The price vs performance of these monitors makes them a better value than any monitors that come even close to this price.

                Nice sound, don't expect miracles with the bass.

                Comments about Behringer MS16 Active Personal Monitor System:

                Wouldn't be my only pair of monitors, but a great second set for reference, djing, or for impromptu laptop setups.
                This had all of the features I was personally looking for. I currently have 2 krk rp8's and wanted something smaller to reference with and also put directly over my decks so I can mix late without having to wake the neighbors up.
                It's ok. The weight of the left speaker is extermely light (sans power), so it gives you an idea of the size magnet used. The sound is quite flat though.
                Great for my needs.

                Terrible sound quality and build quality. Awful. NOT worth the money. Buy another set of monitors, any other set, but not this set. Garbage. Sometimes Behringer gets it right. This is not one of those times.
