Anonymous 's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" like really bad monitor"

Behringer MS16
characteristics not so bad on paper
Very cheap, use in a network order (talkback).


Regarding the sound is bad: messy, confused, absolutely not neutral in short, unusable. Probably great for listening to online radio in the kitchen but to make her ...


I use network order to communicate with my artists. In this role is perfect for the price EXCEPT that the basic design is bad, the transformer (hp right) is just behind the grave.
At the start you have a nice 50hz, discreet but present.
The price of the pair that is not a surprise, but the manufacturer speaks shield ... There is a real problem of radiation.

I removed the transformer and have deported with 2 meters of cable in a junction box classic. Since no worries, it is used in network order and mod enters the original box simply by transferring polystyrene above.

I am not an anti Behringer, I have two pairs of Truth B1031A listen that I love and have a real quality with a quality / price excellent.
But frankly for MS16 of "monitors" or "tapping" ...

What characteristics have motivated your choice?
needs a listening conparative more of my Alesis M1 MK2 Actve

For what purpose?
studio ... and studio! I would not do anything else with, I prefer the alesis recess!

What amp / What configuration?
home ask about Alesis


The frequency curve is sufficiently neutral?
Not at all! but it is for her that I've snuff ... useless to hope to own with a mix! eventuelement to sound in a synth, or listening to music ...

The dynamics are respected?
everything is relative! with sub sound is less loud. and therefore sounds more round. otherwise it is the acute and medium ... with the impression of zero dynamics :/

The stereo image is good?
surprisingly yes! I find them very well in this field (I done dub) and my delay effects passing from right to left are well reproduced.

The sound is clear and precise across the spectrum?
it is not perfectly flat perfect xD basically have to push the bass to have a little pressure equilibrate its ...


How long have you been using?
2 days

Did you try many other models before buying it?
yes a number xD

What is so special that you like most and least?
rendering sound completely colored

not symmetric input

How do you rate the quality / price?
Worse ...

With experience, you do again this choice?
without hesitation for the comparative listening ... not the main listening!

jolycorentin's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" not bad"

Behringer MS16
very competitive price for use of extended listening
directly connected to my pc.


The sound of the speaker is not neutral, however the little power can do well "spit" the speakers and it gives the fishing!


2 years, this is my first pair of speaker "Monitor"
the +: the small size and powerful nomad
the -: be somewhat fragile

value for the price is right

with the experience I would not buy behringer music to work, but the prices are very practicable for the simple or extended listening.

victhebig's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" good pair for small mixer amateur!"

Behringer MS16
The price has guided my choice!

This is a Chinese copy of Edirol active speakers,
with less components onreux: plastic instead of wood, cabinets etc. .. so good


baffles fairly neutral, with good doses of bass and treble


the quality is average, but given the price.
I was able to mix multiple tracks with the final report as fairly neutral.

As I pass the IDAL yamaha HM50, for the costs the Behringers are dsastre even if it has a little power, the dynamic is quite zero.

lapiculteur's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" great for the price"

Behringer MS16
I had to buy the home behringer 20 ms and as I found them good, I wanted to buy these ones for my wife who does voiceover.


they blow a bit but nothing serious the stereo? yes, the price is great the sound is very good about multimedia speakers but we can not do with the monitoring, the lower are quickly blurred, the sound a little more metal. short, nothing too terrible and can not exceed the middle of the volume but for a small room is already more than enough.


me to have them for a week. hercules before I had 2.1 and the difference is énorme.juste I regret the subwoofer.
+ what I love, the price delivered on 44 Roros e bay connectors, and then frankly the sound is clean.
the - well, as the sound could be better but of course it's not the same price.
speakers for pc, yes of course I would do the same choice
I made a tutorial if you notice that your left speaker vibrates.
for 44 euros, I find them really good ...

Menestrel de malheur's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Behringer MS16
I needed a little powered speakers near neutral and cheap to register a model without pretension.

Pregnant do anything that lasts over time, but not professional equipment.


So when you plug these speakers for the first time (by putting all the settings at noon) we noticed a swelling in the lower, but the rest of the spectrum is relatively neutral, surprisingly.

It will suffice to lower the bass a notch or two for neutrality.


I use them for two years, and frankly I am satisfied.

To make it simple and straightforward: These are not studio monitors itself (they boostent a little low) but they are good speakers has to do everything, rather durable and cashing relatively sound accidental shocks.

Maintenent I use them for computer music (Reason Cubase) very good forum for movies, I also use a keyboard arranger korg m50 and the sound is very good, only the chattering too powerful bass speakers are crackling ( several times I thought I had blown it but hold out for now)

Voila, good value for the behringer is surprising, for total neutrality could use some work but the front two bands equalizer with a bearing problem.

Otherwise very good speaker has everything to keyboards for PC, with attention to the bass drum machines, groove boxes and synthesizers and a little fat.

Speaker who clearly have their limits, but very good value for money.

Behringer MS16
Ultra compact
2 band EQ.
general volume
headphone and microphone.


It sounds cold, it was a breath visible.
Well, I dare not 'users in the home studio behringer cf'est: D it's great to amplify against my playstation2.

basically these are the speakers HP PC amliors.

The sound is not disastrous anyway: D



EQ low efficiency.
breath (slight)

Price 69 public, I have had personal cado;) for the price again moves to behringer leader apparently ...

nikel is for very small budjets.

Beat Hohmann's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Behringer MS16
Trs compact, multifunctional and practical (cinch, MiniJack STREO 3.5 mm microphone)
My company grew recently bought 9 pairs as in miniaturized sound dmonstrations audiovisual (but not for a rgy!). This shows the intellgibilit silent speech more important than quality "high fidelitquot; music.
The extremely favorable price silent a strong argument (no financial risk ...).
Moreover, all the electronic is in the right speaker, the left is passive.
There are always some noise in indoor mcaniques shock when these small speakers. These sounds may also be excited by the vibrations of the membranes of chassis low frequencies.
At least in the left speaker there is nothing (either in absorption)!
While these speakers have wasted the extreme t ...


According to my tests, the highlight is the ffective (yield: the thundering noise level with the 8 watts of power). Sound a little hard intlligibilit increases of speech. For music, you have to use the adjusters Tone (amplify the low frequencies, rduire a bit high), but you get faster to the limits of the System.
It seems to me that the acute suffering some rsonances: rduire treble does not disparatre the hardness of the sound.


I would not call it a forum for monitoring, because I would not judge a record on the basis of which is radiated by the MS-16.
For me, these are ultra-compact loudspeaker systems whose best quality is the efficiency:
- The electro-acoustic efficiency (performance, intellgibilit)
- The efficiency with respect to the price / usefulness that they provide for 100 CHF / 70 Euros!
A typical application is the amplification of sound from a notebook at the front of a public audiovisual prsentations up to 30 people (if they are quiet ..)
Taking into account these limitations, once again the price / usefulness of this product is thundering Behringer (ok, produced in China, but meanwhile is also Mackie).
Behringer has announced powered speakers a little larger: the MS-20, but it takes ...
