    The characteristics (and price ...) of MS40 are salivating. Too bad that these speakers are still not outputs (1 year their output is pushing!), Even if they appear to the catalog of several online vendors. Can not be purchased at this time.

    I bought them as low-budget monitor speakers when I started doing computer music.
    To this day I use them connected to a Presonus AudioBox 44 VSL soundcard.
    I still use them for computer music with Nuendo.

    SOUNDS

    It's true that these speakers have lots of lows, but fortunately there are two knobs at the rear that allow you to adjust the low and high frequencies The ON/OFF switch is also practical.
    It's obvious that these speakers don't have the precision of professional speakers, but if you listen to them regularly, you can easily make good use of them, always taking care to listen to your mixes on other media (headphones, speakers), so you can find the right balance between the …

    When I read that some people say the sound isn't good, I can't believe it. I think the bad sound they get is due to their soundcard or bad settings of the latter. Personally, I never crank them beyond halfway and I never have distortion.
    The dynamic response is good.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've been using these monitors for 6 years.
    I've had the opportunity to listen to other monitors in a studio, but they are out of my reach. At home, I use the Behringer MS 40 as main monitors, but to check my mixes I also use a couple of Hi-Fi Tensaï speakers connected to my '80s JVC amp a pair of Beyerdynamic DTX 910 headphones, plus a pair of AKG cans whose model I can't recall. I also use my Phonic P620 to listen at loud volumes.
    From my point of view, this product is a great value for money and it features intelligent connecting possibilities, frequency controls and an ON/OFF switch on the front panel, as well as an LED indicating the power status.
    You need some time to get used to them and not let yourself be mistaken by their major defect, which is to highlight the low end.
    I wouldn't hesitate to buy them again.
    I must point out that I'm not a pro of computer music, it's only a hobby for me.

    multiple purposes

    Behringer MS40Published on 12/16/12 at 23:18
    The Behringer MS 40 monitors are very inexpensive and have a great frequency range with a flat response. I used these for over a year and had some isolation pads under them on my workstation. I had these facing inward at ear level to give me the best possible mixing experience. The difference between these monitors and most others is that it gives you options on it to plug in your MP3 player or keyboard right into it without having to go through an interface to hear the sound. This comes in handy if you want to use your monitors just to listen to music through or take them with you for your keyboard but it is a feature that I did not use too much so it did not matter to me either way.

    SOUNDS

    The sound was pretty good, the response was pretty flat and you can turn these all the way up and not have to worry about losing any sound quality. Because these are so cheap it is great to have a pair of them so that you can use them for multiple purposes down the road if you need to.

    OVERALL OPINION

    There are 20 watt amps built into each monitor but that is not enough power to really get a huge sound. But for the price that these cost you can not expect a much better sound. My favorite feature of these speakers is that there are treble and bass knobs on them so that you can adjust them accordingly. These feature is really only good for when you are listening to music through your mp3 player or using them with your keyboard. Because when using them for mixing you never really want to mess with the bass and treble because that can affect your mix terribly on the high and low end. You will love this monitors because they have multiple purposes but if you are looking for a big sound then these might not be the best option for you.

    Good small speakers!
    Home studio using Cubase or work in nearby (to me, each side of the screen). I needed small speakers proximity (just 30 cm cabbage) that do not get tired listening but with a its still okay to avoid nasty surprises on my boulot.Je can not really put hard to work in the evening (tjs not want to work with headphones).
    This is a good quality / price ratio I explain = 125 €, an optical or coaxial input 24-bit/192Hz for a direct connection to sound card), a second RCA grafted with 2 independent volumes which is ideal for monitoring, a 12 cm woofer + tweeter and a "small system" bass-reflex), a small bass and treble EQ which also correct the headphone jack.

    SOUNDS

    The sound is good for the price with a good dynamic (they have the juice for the size!) Although with a slight coloration in the midrange and bass a little blurry (have not seen the + dream config!). C '+ is that correct for this type of speaker.
    To summarize, it is not monitoring speakers! (= 12 cm woofer, 2x 20w) and no hope to the mix or sound recording with pure (+ it's not what I wanted with this material & I already have the gear for that!) but to work with his grandpa still worthy of the name (qd is even something that small multimedia speakers) + is honorable!. The settings on the front (+ headphone jack) are also practical in that direction.

    OVERALL OPINION

    So, I put 9 / 10 for the price / quality ratio!
    (Ps: they do not seem frail at all, even if the knobs are plastic ...???... actually I'm not sure that the reputation of unreliability of Behringer products is justified?! Only downside the range of little ones my mini-racks, mini mic, mini-comp etc ... but they are only 40 € uros, yeah compressor 40 € uros + is not Christmas! !)

    - The stereo image is good?
    Very good stereo image.
    - The sound is clear and precise on the spectrum?
    Two adjustment potentiometers, severe acute, the sound is clear and precise especially in the high end, low home his powerful little push button to more serious causes of parasite 3am on the speakers. Adding a subwoofer multimedia with a bass and low medium that eliminates the saturation and provides powerful bass. The lower midrange speaker of the more serious the box gives a really accurate and powerful in the bass.

    - The dynamics are respected? ...
    Very good dynamics, converter looks very good. The headphone and enjoy the converter is changed by adjusting the EQ. With my monitoring headphones the sound is really improved.

    Compared to Prodipe entry that I could listen to these speakers + subwoofer are well above in terms of clarity and dynamics.
    7 to the sound without the subwoofer (bass shy), know that the speakers saturate if the volume button is pushed beyond 2 hours (but these speakers were not purchased (and presumably designed) in order to push too much volume)
    9 with the subwoofer (total budget: 170euro including shipping with a cable to connect the subwoofer.) With a bonus headset for the converter.

    OVERALL OPINION

    - How long have you use it?
    2 days. I would put this notice up to date if defects appear to me to use.
    - What is so special that you like most and least?
    Plus, the dynamics and the headphone jack
    Minimum, low confused.
    - Have you tried many other models before buying it?
    Only two, it's just a booster to hear the mix as an amateur.
    - How would you rate the quality / price?
    Excellent
    - With experience, you do again this choice? ...
    Impossible to say for now.

    C The big worry in sound, they sound "hollow" if you know what I mean, serious lack of definition in the midrange, a nasty bump in the lower medium, around 150 Hz, the treble is potable, low current relatively low range, but blurred and exaggerated.

    In short for me totally impractical for either the design or sound for recording or to the mix. I tried "retrapper of the EQ is so correct, but that suddenly it sends certain frequencies in the clip without warning. As against the stereo image is good. No noticeable noise.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Note that I have nothing against Behringer, I ultrafex2 the ADA8000, the ULTRAPATCH in the past and still other things I have no qualms about brands, but there the MS40 It was at the point where it bothered me, no way to get used to, even my best-sounding records all sounded bad on it. In short I strongly recommend, to 120 € the pair are no miracles on c, but in my opinion are ptites stereo or multimedia speakers for the same price that sound better ..

    I do not use that for mixing and I begin to know them a little. The comparative soundtracks by other means at my disposal HIFI satisfy me completely.

    I am not a specialist of frequency curves ... However, I made a little adjustment once and for all by reducing a little low and increasing the treble a bit, and it suits me. The stereo image seems excellent, the sound is clear enough (I did not use more than 50% of volume) and the dynamics of live is respected for my taste.

    I find the value very suitable (Thomann). I am also quite a fan of Behringer, which meets my needs without being too expensive.
    Upon request, I can make you play tracks laid on the canvas for you to judge the final rendering.
    With experience, and above all with the same wallet, yes, I do it again this choice. With more than beauicoup in, I think I can do better in the € 600-700 ...
