Radiant Audio, Designed for the Desktop

If you’re like many of us here on Drop, you do a lot of listening at your desk. You might use headphones, IEMs, or studio monitors; or you might be searching for something else—an elusive, desk-sized sweet spot. Stop the search: you’ve found it. Meet the Drop BMR1 Nearfield Monitors: sleek, streamlined speakers with ultra-expressive sound, designed specifically for the desktop. Monolithic in both sound and style, the BMR1 Nearfield Monitors get their name from their small-but-mighty wide-bandwidth drivers, which leverage a technology called Balanced Mode Radiation (BMR) to deliver powerful, full-range audio in a compact form factor. Perfect for placement on any part of the desk, these BMR drivers are tuned to deliver a holographic, natural frequency response ideal for movies, music, and more. Stand the BMR1 Nearfield Monitors vertically or horizontally—and easily bolster the bass with a dedicated subwoofer output. No matter how you listen, you’ll hear the difference. Get your desk the audio it deserves.

Streamlined Form Factor, Expansive Soundstage

On any desk, size is always a concern—but it shouldn’t be a compromise. When designing the BMR1, we made it our mission to create a compact pair of speakers that didn’t cut corners on audio quality. Committing to a small footprint, we knew we had to find class-leading drivers to deliver distortion-free sound that punched way above its weight class. That’s why we recruited the team at Tectonic Audio Labs, who have developed ultra-compact drivers equipped with a technology called Balanced Mode Radiation (BMR) to all but eliminate breakup and beaming by using a balanced disc (rather than a cone) to push air and create room-filling sound. In the BMR1, this technology is actualized in a pair of 2-inch, full-range BMR drivers combined with a pair of force-canceling passive radiators that fire in opposite directions to cancel out unwanted vibrations. Together with our meticulous, transparent tuning, these components give the BMR1 an expansive soundstage with detail and loudness to spare. It’s a pair of speakers that fits anywhere—and impresses anytime.

More Ways to Connect & Listen

A good set of speakers should excel in a wide range of setups. Beyond its expressive, expansive sound, the BMR1 packs a lot of connective convenience into its compact form factor. We’ve already mentioned its 3.5 millimeter output—but beyond that, we’ve also outfitted the BMR1 with a subwoofer-2.0-to-2.1 switch, which attenuates the bass emitted from the BMR1 itself for more synergistic listening with a subwoofer. (With this switch activated, you can also turn up the BMR1 a bit louder, due to the tamed bass.) And with a 3.5 millimeter input, users can also connect the BMR1 to a wide range of additional audio sources, such as turntables, tape decks, CD players, and more. For extra convenience, we’ve also equipped the BMR1 with Bluetooth 5.0 (and support for both AAC and SBC codecs) to give listeners a stable, great-sounding wireless option. Connect your way, with incredible audio in every configuration.

Interchangeable, Personalized Grilles

Your desk is precious real estate. If you’re like most members of our community, you need it to be as functional as possible—and you want it to reflect your personal aesthetic. With a compact footprint and convenient adjustability, the BMR1 is the definition of functional. It’s also customizable. That’s because we’ve paired it with intuitive, interchangeable magnetic grilles so you can switch up your look whenever you like. Right now, the BMR1 ships without grilles—as many Drop users love its spare, industrial style—but you can add classic Black grilles to your order right here. Also available are five alternate colors, which you can explore below. In the future, we’ll be making new grilles with colorways based on some of our most popular keycap sets—as well as input from you.

Question
Will plugging in the sub out kill the bass coming out of the monitors or will they still play along side the subwoofer?

There is a mode switch on the rear of the speaker that can attenuate the bass from the speakers for better pairing with a sub. This will also allow the speaker to play a bit louder than it does in...Read More
