I think the only way would be 3.5mm stereo to 6.35mm mono, something like this:

amazon.co.uk/3-5…MK/

Unless somebody can correct me...

Mmm would just love a pair of these... unfortunately the recession is not yet over in my household!

Hot from me, I've seen a lot of positive reviews of these speakers.

Hot Deal... I have the B2031A's for producing and general listening.. and they are impressive for the price.. These are the next model up .. dammm tempting to get these aswell.. Usually well over £240 brand new... HOT

thanks all great help but cant risk so will stick with dalisensor

Does anyone else get that cold sweat just after buying something like this off the cuff?

Thanks to OP... I think.

Yes, but honestly... this is pretty much the price it costs for one of the speakers... even if you don't like them you'll be able to sell them on for a bit of profit. Parcel Monkey says it'll cost £13.19 to send them which is pretty damn good for considering it's so heavy.

But it is worth stressing, they are monitor speakers. Aimed more towards music production, etc.

Bl&^*y hell!

thomann.de/gb/…htm

More money to spend!!!

Cheers OP lol

Been looking for a pair of smaller active monitors for ages, not what im after but so bloody tempting at this price. Heat!

It's a decent deal but they're Behringer...

Behringer have a nasty habit of taking other people's designs, back-engineering them then re-making them with cheap components. My studio experience has led me to the position of "don't buy behringer". Their products are very much a false economy and you're usually better off spending more unless you're on a very tight budget and willing to take a risk.

I'm not voting this up or down as a result, I just felt it fair to warn people what they might be buying!

Hot. I really wish I could afford this, but I need to save the money for a projector...

Never heard of this low-end make...prefer Bose

Absolute bargain, brilliant reviews, thanks very much Mamboboy

Would you say these reach anywhere near reference-quality in terms of using for audio mastering?

bah, amazing price but they too big
SHMBO would go mental...

Are these better than Beats?

sold out, lucky! (really tempted, always been listening to monitor speakers and even my Hifi has monitor speakers but can't afford these - would've meant total skintness!)

These are for people/producers making Music. I have a usb mixer and a Usb Sound Interface and they are quality!

Forgot about Bose;)

Just went to order when there were 5 left & by the time it went through they'd sold out!
Well that saved me £162.50

Sarcasm isn't working for you.

Congrats to those who got a set! I was staring at them in the basket for an hour before I posted them up. As somebody said... they are a little big, especially for a desktop. Figured I'd need to buy a new table or stands for them and couldn't be bothered with the effort.

I wonder how many will end up straight on eBay? (_;)

HAHAHA I do hope you're kidding...

Bose are for the uneducated who like to pretend they know about audio. On top of that, these are studio monitors, a completly different beast to the home audio Bose make.

Had you said Bang & Olufson then you might have had some credibility.

But I'm hoping it was sarcasm!

£325 / 2 = £162.50

I suspect that someone had mistakenly put up the price for a single monitor instead of a pair. Monitors are quite often sold in singles so this is a reasonable suspicion.

"31KG in weight so make sure your nans not in to collect them when they arrive."

Brilliant

Just don't use them when Politicians are on, I suspect they'll meltdown!

Couldn't have said it better my self! I've been doing for 15 years and the amount of sub standard Behringer product I have saw is unreal, I would strongly recommend not buying any thing Behringer!!

The Truth, I can't handle the truth, at least not at £370.50 - price now.

Behringer is a well known brand in the music production world. Bose is for home listening, totally different market.

Good price, extremely good bass extension (50hz). But bare in mind these are *monitor* speakers. They will make badly produced music sound much worse, as they are supposed to.

For something similiar, but probably a bit more musical, I have a pair of ESI nEar 05, for about £160, which are superb. I've owned Dynaudio BM15s before, and these aren't a million miles away from that level of clarity, without being harsh on the ears (biggest difference between good/bad monitor speakers in my opinion).

Really happy with my 10-year old beautifully warmed in mission 780SE's.

Happy with my B&W 805's, they seem pretty accurate to me

wow! cant believe I missed this what a cracking deal these speakers are decent.... been waiting for some studio monitors to come on here, gonna have to end up shelling out for the krk's

Spend a little more and get a set of KRK Rokits 5's over these. As ppl have said you will regret buying behringer. They are basically cheap copies of something decent.
