Gearank Recommendation

The BM5 mkIII appeared on our recommended list for Studio Monitors from September 2020 until February 2022.

Although this was previously on our recommended list, there are now more highly rated options available which you can see in our guide to The Best Studio Monitors.


The Dynaudio BM5 mkIII improves upon its predecessor by putting out more power, a wider frequency range, and higher SPL without distortion.

These improvements result in a clearer sound, better dynamic range, and less distortion at higher playback volumes.

The low-frequency extension is present but can be hit-or-miss depending on your room and how well standing waves are treated.

If you want a transparent and natural sounding monitor that won’t fatigue you while making long mixing sessions a joy, the Dynaudio BM5 mkIII is a great pick for your studio.
