    LOWmendous (tremendous)

    I was on the fence between purchasing the gen 8010 or krk vxt4. Although i never got a change to listen to the krk vxt4s I am blownaway by these lil mofos... im into hip-hop and r&b music. i use logic pro 9 and my mpc 2500 to create. getting back to the 8010's the LOWs are tight and punchy. the mids and highs are crispy and the overall sound is powerful. no exaggeration, i put on a beat and went into the br to shower and i heard every detail of the song IN THE FRIGGIN SHOWER... the kik drums sounded amazing. do yourself a favor and take a listen to these speakers... treat yourself dont cheat yourself.

    absolute upgrade for intermediate producer

    I gave away my Yamaha monitors, which are about four or five times the size of these new Genelecs.

    the Genelecs cost twice as much as the Yamahas, but sound twice as good-- according to my calculations, anyway. I don't mean to make unfair comparisons, though... it's just that this is a personally significant upgrade.

    I am stoked. these monitors appear to reflect the whole audible spectrum, including lows. I'm not even running a sub yet and the sound I'm getting is noticeably less thin than other monitors standing alone. (I can't pretend to be an expert sonic physicist, so take my opinion with a grain of salt.)

    one more remark: these monitors make music sound really, really good. they sound like expensive open-ear headphones spread across your desk. if you have the money to blow, just buy them. I think that Genelec had budding producers in mind with these monitors: they are the cheapest offering from Genelec, which affords us a taste of the big-league equipment; they are small, therefore pretty easy to throw on a desk or in a backpack (please don't throw them)... they are awesome... so awesome, in fact, that I felt compelled to ramble about them on the internet.

    Compact Powerhouses!

    While I was expecting these to be excellent nearfield monitors for my small voiceover studio, I was very pleasantly surprised to hear just how well they performed! When properly set up, the stereo sweet spot sounds almost 3-dimensional, just hanging out in front of you. While I could go into the highs, lows and midrange quality individually, suffice to say....amazing! The thing that you don't necessarily hear from these is the build quality: these monitors are meant to last, and are designed to be portable. One feature I love is the ISS; it is a nice touch that works seamlessly. Finally, at this price point, the 8010's are a real deal.....IMHO, you won't be disappointed.

    Big sound !

    Don't let the size of these monitors fool you, they have a great balanced, flat, and full sound! They have a detailed mid range that even bigger speakers from competitors can't seem to reveal in such detail as the 8010s can. Highs are clean and not hyped, thus ear fatigue has not been an issue. Imaging is just as good as much larger speakers due to their patented cabinet. Low end lacks a bit as you would imagine but not nearly as much as I was afraid they would be. Being familiar with their larger siblings I had high expectations and a bit of doubt to replicate the Genelec quality I love and trust when mixing or creating music. I was not let down one bit, everything you would expect from the 8000 series is present in these little guys. If you are looking for pro sounding monitor(s) for a great price your money will be well spent on these!
