Drop BMR1 Nearfield Monitors are available for preorder on January 31

SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 4, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Drop, an innovator in audiophile products, announced the new Drop BMR1 Nearfield Monitors to offer audiophiles customizable, high-quality desktop speakers to elevate their desk setups for work and play. The Drop BMR1s feature a signature, holographic sound quality that creates a natural soundstage and excellent imaging capabilities, all in a compact size and market-leading price.

Retailing for $129, the Drop BMR1s are designed around balanced mode radiators (BMR) coupled with force-canceling passive radiators, allowing them to play audio loudly, without distortion and with a wide dispersion so the speakers sound great no matter how they are arranged. They offer an organic and natural tonality, so the speakers are true to the source without sounding overly harsh or bright. If a more low-end output is preferred, the Drop BMR1s can easily connect to a subwoofer for better bass and audio depth. The speakers also offer Bluetooth compatibility for connectivity to mobile devices and computers, as well as include a headphone output and aux-in so they can be connected to virtually any source device.


“We consider our community members knowledgeable enthusiasts who are passionate about their gear and curate optimal combinations of performance and design-focused products for their setups,” said Jef Holove, CEO, Drop. “With that in mind, we sought to design speakers worthy of our first entry into the category, and we drew inspiration from our mechanical keyboard community to incorporate the customization and personal expression elements in the speakers, which are so essential to enthusiasts.”
