I've had these monitors for about 2 years now and have absolutely no complaints. I run them through an RME Multiface and use them for mixing, home multimedia and even live sometimes to add a little reverb when singing and playing with my acoustic band.
They're responsive at all volumes and frequencies. I keep the Bass and Treble controls at 12 o'clock when mixing, but those controls are useful when listening to something not of the best quality on YouTube, perhaps. They lose no clarity on low volume and turning them half way up is enough to hear them in the whole house. I haven't tried any louder.
Comparing to other monitors; I had a pair of Genelec 1020's with subwoofer. They were so accurate that if I moved my head just half a metre in another direction, the sound changed! All I could hear with those things was reflections of walls, furniture, etc. Unless you have a custom-designed, professional, sound-proofed studio they're pretty impractical - in my opinion! I did mixes with those that sounded terrible on other gear. The Behringers? Well, you could probably play these in an empty indoor swimming pool and they'd still sound the same. The mixes I've made with them sound great in the car, on cheap headphones and even the club - I had a techno 12" vinyl release which I mixed on them. The only slight negative a can find is that I had to get the soldering iron out to make two cables with RCA jacks if I use my analogue old mixer in front of them.
In conclusion: Great speakers, no need for a subwoofer, super versatile and outstanding value for money. Highly recommendable.

Great value

I bought these speakers in 2007 . Since then I have used them along side KRK rokit speakers and a pair of yamaha speakers. I find these great monitors! Perfect for a studio of a limited size. At very very low volumes these speakers work well in my apartment, for mixing without disturbing my neighbours. But also are loud enough to listen to a mix from other rooms.

I record bass and guitar mostly, and these speakers seem to have a nice sweet spot for my precision bass. I keep these on a desk next to my monitor screen, and they are shielded magnetically, so no colouration on the screen and no interference noise on the monitors.

I use them, plugged into my sound card. the bass and trebel knobs work well.
at 40 watts I have never needed to turn them up past 5 or 6. I mainly use the headphone output on my soundcard, but having an extra headphone jack is always really handy, for when monitoring my friend when he records acoustic guitar, so we both have headphones.

I love these speakers, and will definately buy another set. slick design for a small studio, and active speakers (no preamp) is definately the way to go for beginners.

A few years back, these could have been a starter's choice.

Nowadays, every pair of average desktop speakers sound the same, (if not better), than these.

If you're looking for monitors, go buy a decent pair. If you're looking for a little better sound than your tiny portable speakers, there are literally hundreds of cheaper and better sounding options to get around.

They sound ok, they have many connections, including spdif, they look more "professional" sitting on your desktop, and that's as far as they go. They deteriorate pretty fast, and they are not worth being serviced.

Does the Job ! Real German Quality !

Very simple to use ... The sound is great.

Since buying it , had no issue with it ... works fine and is reliable.

i did not owed a studio monitor before i 'll not be able to give a big comparison. i had a normal 2.1 before and it makes a difference buying this MS40 !

Worth the price, although a little misleading

Given the price, the sound is not bad at all. At the same time, these monitors are in a sense an imitation of real high quality studio equpment. Even their immediate predecessors?Rolands and Edirols?were pronouncedly better built.

In reality the monitors _do not_ look as smart as in the picture. Speaker rims and pot knobs are made of cheap plastic. Pots are sort of loose. The white membranes of the speakers are somewhat grey and not as pleasant to look at as those by Yamaha.

Initially I was in two minds whether to keep them or send them back. Ok, I've kept them for three reasons:

- The sound is still ok.
- Price is great.
- No real alternative in terms of my input/output requirements.

Also, I happened to see some reviews saying that the headphone input jack tends to produce a rediculous whistling sound when under acoustic pressure from inside. Maybe it is for this reason that the speakers are now supplied with a small plastic pluck to close the headphones jack when the headset is unplugged. Mine do not whistle even without the pluck.

Cheers!
