Great Monitors, Even Better Once You Learn Their Sound
I use a pair of these (as anyone looking for monitors should) for my home studio running Logic Pro X. They have proven to be extremely helpful to my mixing process and have fostered better sounds and creation abilities from me. That being said there is, in my opinion, a learning curve with these as there is with any set of monitors that once mastered, can put these at a genuinely pro level but until then, can be problematic. I'll hit that con first and then mention all the overwhelming pros.
The Con: Bass Response. A big draw to these monitors specifically is that as far as "budget" monitors go, they have a very flat, unhyped, true-to-source response. When you are listening critically to make improvements, this is key because if a mix can sound good on unflattering speakers, it can feasibly sound good on anything. However, one of the realities of budget gear is that you can't have your cake and eat it too. Because of this natural response, they do not have a large amount of bass extension. This poses a problem because most standard grade stereos in this day and age have hyped bass because it's what people want for popular music. If you think you have the perfect amount of bass with these monitors, then when someone plays your mix on a bass-heavy stereo you will be surprised with something ranging from a little bit of boominess all the way to a muffled, muddy mess. This is why I say there is a learning curve. Once you know the limitation, you can mix with the knowledge that a little less bass than perfection on these monitors will yield actual perfection for the average listener. End Essay.
Stereo Imaging/Sound Space - These give an amazing stereo response that instantly makes you feel immersed. When I pan any vocals dead center, I feel like I can reach out and touch them on the computer screen. For this to be true though, you definitely need to be sitting in the sweet spot.
Sound Quality - As long as the mix was made well, these are also just enjoyable monitors to listen to music on. They are loud and crystal clear, and I've never heard mine distort.
Response - Other than the slight lack of bass listed above, their response lets you hear exactly what was recorded. This makes for a much-improved ability to mix well.
Affordability - Will a $2000 set of monitors sound better? Of course. Even a $700 pair? Most likely. But for any home studio, this $300 pair (at time of review) will not disappoint. I would actually be confident taking them into a higher-than-home studio situation, as long as I knew their response tendencies and wasn't mixing a music genre where I needed to hear very deep bass.
I would recommend these without hesitation.
