One of the many perks of writing for the geeks are sexy website is the cool stuff we get to review!
A few weeks ago, we received a complimentary set of Monoprice DT-5BT 60-Watt Desktop Speakers with Bluetooth for an unbiased review, and we tested them out for you, dear readers. They also have three separate lines of the desktop speakers with different classifications to fit your unique space and sound needs. Please note that we have a promo code at the bottom of this post that will get you 15% off on the speakers!
Featuring a 60-watt Class AB amplifier driving a 5,25″ polypropylene woofers and 0.75″ silk dome tweeters, the DT-5BT is engineered to deliver fantastic sound for near-field listening and it does deliver! In terms of connectivity, the DT-5BT features a 3.5mm stereo input jack and a 3.5mm headphone jack on the front panel for easy access, plus a stereo pair of RCA jacks and a stereo pair of 1/4″ balanced TRS jacks on the rear panel, allowing you to connect mobile, consumer, and professional audio equipment.
To begin, these look amazing! The sleek design can fit into any decor. We loved that they did not look too modern, nor too old-school, but were very versatile in any type of styling. Being Monoprice, they are designed to be democratic, to fit everywhere, whether your house is steampunk inspired or an old country house like mine.
They were easy to set-up too! With so many kids running around, it had to be a quick install with a simple set-up.
Once we connected my iPhone to the Monoprice DT-5BT 60-Watt Desktop Speakers wirelessly through Bluetooth – the sound quality was spectacular! With so many people in our household, we listen to an amazing array of musical styles, ranging from classical to metal with a detour through dubstep thanks to the kids. These speakers are calibrated for general listening. I must admit being a bit disappointed that I couldn’t play with the tuning directly on the speakers. Sometimes, a song deserves more bass or more treble. Fortunately, some music playing apps will allow you to tune your sound software side.
As for near-field listening, it does deliver what it promised: a great sound for listening in close range. Living in a small house, these speakers are perfect for an intimate gathering, a fun, close-knitted dance party or just listening and singing while doing the dishes!
Aside from the (very) minor detail of calibrating your own specs, the sound is outstanding. And for the price of $180USD, it’s well worth it. If you’re looking for wireless speakers at a budget but expect high-quality sound, the Monoprice DT-5BT 60-Watt Desktop Speakers with Bluetooth are perfect for you.
