Grab a new pair of Samson MediaOne M50 studio monitors for a low price of $97.70 at Amazon. These speakers normally sell for around $120, and we have never seen them drop this low before. The speakers were first introduced back in 2019 and haven’t seen a lot of price drops since then. The same M50 monitors are $115 at B&H and going for as much as $130 at Best Buy.
The monitors are powered by an 80-watt studio-grade amplifier. This is what separates “studio monitors” from standard “speakers.” While speakers might be loud, they do not have an amplifier in there for dynamic, rich, detailed sound. If you want to actually judge the music or other sounds you’re listening to, edit them, or otherwise get more in-depth than simply listening, then you need an amplifier.
You can also bump up the lower frequencies with the Bass Boost EQ switch that’s simple to use. The speakers include Stereo RCA and 1/8-inch inputs, headphone output, and a stereo 1/8-inch sub output.
