Drop announces rotatable desktop monitors with ‘Balanced Mode Radiation’ technology

Drop claims their new speakers deliver audiophile sound in a compact package

Audio and keyboard manufacturer Drop has announced their newest product, the BMR1 Nearfield Monitors. An inventive pair of desktop monitors, the BMR1s are named after “Balanced Mode Radiation” (BMR), a technology utilized by the speakers’ wide-bandwidth drivers that, according to Drop, allow them to deliver “holographic, natural frequency response ideal for any genre of music.” Coupled with force-cancelling passive radiators, the BMR1s can play as loudly as desired while maintaining low distortion.

One of the most intriguing properties of the BMR1 Nearfield Monitors are their ability to be positioned either vertically or horizontally, taking whatever form you deem best for your personal environment or desired audio profile. Drop also claims that the monitors create a natural soundstage and have excellent imaging capabilities. Connectivity options will not be an issue, as the BMR1s feature Bluetooth, an aux-in, 3.5mm headphone output, and subwoofer connectivity if you desire added low-end.

Taking a page from their mechanical keyboard line, customizable mechanical grills are also available for the BMR1s for added personalization.

“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.”

The BMR1 Nearfield Monitors retail for $129 and are currently available for pre-order. Shipments are expected to arrive in late February or March.
