"M5i: Although there’s no disputing their fine appearance, this standmount failed to convince, with a lack of punch and warmth through the bass and lower midband. M16i: A bit of a mixed bag sonically. The mid and treble is smooth and neutral, but under our conditions the bass alignment had slightly thumpy tendencies and lacked punch"
- Striking design
- Detailed and articulate performance
- Bass from the M16i can seem lacklustre
- Overall performance can 'lack punch'
