I bought these for a few reasons.
#1 - I wanted something that had a pretty flat responce. If it sounds like crap on these speakers. It will sound like crap everywhere. Which brings me to #2
#2- If it sounds good here. It will sound good everywhere else too.
The bass repsonce is smooth and accurate. Along with all other frequencies. This speaker is deadly accurate. And for the price, I recommend getting a pair.
I did a lot fo compairing and reading reviews and more importantly, I listened. Now listeneing is very subjective. What sounds good to me, may not for you. Let me be clear. These speakers aren't here to colour your music so that it sounds sweet. They'll give you a VERY accuarte representation of what your mix sounds like.
These monitors are for professional studio use and for the home studio that wants to upgrade to pro gear.
You can't go wrong in getting these. I'm going to use the word Industry Standard here.
