Behringer MS16 Computer Speaker/ Monitor System Review 2021


I came across the Behringer MS16 which are designed for use as monitor speakers but I also found that they are quite good for use as computer speakers.

✅ Best Behringer MS16 High-Performance Active 16-Watt Personal Monitor System

They Work Great – If you use the the1/4″ mic input on the FRONT, THEY SCREAM, and the bass, treble & volume controls have NO effect. The mic volume level DOES, as well as the controls on whatever you are running it through DO.

The lower frequency response is 80 Hz, this isn’t too great – I’ve been listening to music and if you turn it up the bass is not what I would call booming, however, it is a monitoring speaker so technically you wouldn’t want it too bassy.

Unlike other speakers, it is not audio enhancing so it does not make music from your computer’s sound any better than it does on your average Joe’s PC.

Positives

  • powerful, cheap and standard speakers suitable for multiple uses.

Negatives

  • quiet hum, isn’t magnetically shielded from mobile phones.

You’ll see reviews from buyers who complained ‘i cant use these speakers at all as the reading they give is so very wrong’ but after being an owner of the speakers I would say in reply to that, it seems you are used to speakers for the listening, not monitoring which requires no effects. Of course, there are two knobs that you can adjust the bass and treble if you need to; this is useful if you are using these as computer speakers because they can help improve your listening experience. It also has a direct microphone input and headphone input, the microphone input lets you mix vocals with a stereo track.

The Behringer website states that you could even plug your Electric guitar into the microphone input and then plug in your headphones and play in privacy. Haven’t tried that so I can’t really comment on what it’s like. So far the speakers are quite appealing, with 16 W of power they are quite small and easy to transport if need be. You can’t really complain, at 60 quid this is a steal, especially since there’s a three-year warranty so even if it did break you’re covered.

One of the things I would point out is that on the Behringer website it says ‘Magnetically shielded for placement near computer monitors’, so how come when every time someone walks past their mobile interferes with the speaker? Not good enough Behringer! You can’t advertise a feature that it doesn’t have!

Overall I’m impressed with the value for money, it’s good, verging fantastic. It might be fantastic if they didn’t lie about how it’s magnetically shielded, however, I do believe it is genuinely a great multimedia speaker which has more than one use. They do leave a quiet hum, but if you forget to turn them off I can vouch that it is easy to sleepover so it’s not really a problem.
