  1. Joel B. Shields

    Amazing valueThese speakers provide a neutral, detailed, yet very full sound. If anything is off in your mix, you’ll hear it. I was also enjoying listening to music on there because you hear things that normal stereo speakers won’t highlight. Which is delightful if you have a well-engineered recording. I put on U2’s Joshua Tree the other night and I heard the delays on The Edge’s guitar like I’d never heard them before – amazing. I can’t believe these things are only $100 each.

  2. Mark J. Hedgemond

    Great for Studio workBought this of Apple side of recording. Nice upgrade in sound.

  3. pjetur patterson

    Sounds goodInexpensive and does everything I need it too. Sound is just fine for a novice like myself.

    Necessary for producersAs far as monitors go this is my first pair. They were pricey but bought on sale. No regrets whatsoever. They’ve helped my mixing and producing skills immensely.

    They sound great!After using budget monitors for a while ( well technically these might fall into the same price category at the sale price) these are a world apart, the overall sound response is superior to anything else I have had up til now, great bass levels and clearness, they are pretty big and heavy so use some speaker stands and plan for enough desk area to place them. best deal at the current sale price, Can’t recommend the KRKs enough!

    Great Studio MonitorI ordered this for use with a drum machine, and it does a very good job of that. The sound is very good and the speaker is well made.

  7. john degiacomo

    These sound very goodThese speakers do not have a “flat” frequency response. Almost, but there’s a 1-2db boost at 2.6K and again at 4K and above. It can easily be dealt with with an equalizer. That said, they are good enough to mix on if you adjust the mid-range and they do sound good. You’d have to spend twice as much to get something even a little better.


    Great set of speakersGreat speakers especially for those of us who are new to home recording.
