At $500 you would expect a pair of speakers to deliver studio-quality sound. Luckily, these Bowers & Wilkins computer speakers do just that. Packed with technology, the MM-1s sports features found in high-end recording studios, like the tweeters are designed after the same speakers that are used in the famous Abbey Road studios in London. Sound is carried from your computer to the MM-1s via USB so the audio is uncompressed and raw, allowing for the best possible sound. Trust us, the $500 is well worth it.
