3DWars heeft een review van de Monsoon MH500 neer gemikt. Dit flat panel speaker setje bleek wat betreft 3D positionering een verassend goede performance te leveren:
As far as the 3D sound on these speakers goes...wow! The MM line from Monsoon has been known to have very nice 3D positional sound. The planar focus technology forces the sound to be extremely directional. This however, creates an upside and downside for an audiophile. For starters, this directional sound makes for great 3D positional audio, since it is so easy to position (makes sense, one direction = one position). Yet, this is bad for having speakers 'fill a room' with sound. The sound will bounce off of objects, but will maintain its general wave structure, not allowing for much flexibility. Now, here's the part that will show you why these speakers are so nice. Since the MH-500 has a hybrid design, you get the best of both worlds. The conventional cone allows for very nice 'room-filling' sound, while the Mylar Membrane gives you superb 3D positional audio. This is by far, an excellent design and has great performance.
