I was really excited to try out these Samson MediaOne BT3 Active Studio Monitors with Bluetooth and they have totally lived up to my expectations and then some. The built in speakers in my laptop of course are not the highest of quality and I figured these would be great for when I want to play music or watch movies through my computer to give a nicer audio experience. From the moment I took these out of the box and saw how sturdily made they were, I figured the quality was going to be what I was hoping for, and I was definitely right. They are extremely easy to get set up. In the box are the two speakers, an AC power cord, and speaker wire. The speaker wire connects the two speakers together, using the standard wire clip type plugs on the back of each unit. The power cord is plenty long to run behind a piece of furniture.
There are a few options to connect the speakers to a computer, TV, or mobile device – there are RCA inputs on the back of the right speaker as well as a headphone and audio out jacks on the front. In addition, the really cool thing is that these speakers can use Bluetooth. There is a small button on the back of the right speaker labeled “pair” with the Bluetooth symbol next to it. All I had to do was turn on Bluetooth on my laptop and press that button and almost instantly my laptop recognized that there was a new device available and paired. A light flashed on the front of the speaker to show that the pairing was successful. That’s it – now the speakers are handling all the audio for my computer.
I immediately opened up my iTunes library and chose a classic rock song with complex instrumentation. When I hit play I was so impressed with how good it sounds! As my husband said, “These will really fill up a room!”. There is a great balance of bass and treble from the onboard woofers and tweeters. The volume dial on the front of the right speaker easily controls the level of sound – even at the middle of the dial the volume is fairly loud.
All in all these are a really fantastic quality set of speakers and I know we’ll be getting a lot of use out of them in our house.
