Best monitors in $100-$200 range

Hi all,

I've moved into a new office. It is small (8 by 11 feet), right next to a busy road, and is surrounded by other office cubbies with very little sound isolation. Plus, it is a fairly reverberant space. Not ideal for critical listening by any stretch of the imagination.

So...what would be a good, cheap pair of monitors to use in such a non-ideal space? I'll use my home office for critical listening. The monitors at the new office would primarily be used to avoid straining my ears with headphones. No need for anything too fancy, just something that is decent enough value for the money.

Thanks for any advice.

Hi Sean, I use the M-Audio AV40 and they're quite good for the price. They are a hybrid between studio monitors and Hifi computer speakers.

They're around 150$.
