A Fantastic Monitoring Solution!

JBL LSR305 active studio monitors are a great solution for any serious audio engineer or music producer. They're great for mixing music in your DAW software, editing video, or any other task that requires precise, accurate, detailed sound. JBL designed the LSR305 with advanced features acquired from their flagship M2 Master Reference Monitor, earning the acclaim of renowned engineer Frank Filipetti. An innovative Image Control Waveguide creates a well-defined and incredibly dimensional stereo image. Ask anyone at Sweetwater: from surprisingly rich lows to smooth highs, you'll find it easy to make great-sounding productions with JBL LSR305 active studio monitors.

JBL LSR305 Active Studio Monitor at a Glance:
  • Incredible stereo imaging thanks to an innovative waveguide
  • Ported design means more accuracy at low volume levels
  • Wide sweet spot equals a better studio experience
Incredible stereo imaging thanks to an innovative waveguide

JBL applied innovative elements from their flagship M2 Master Reference Monitors to give the LSR305 incredible sound. The Image Control Waveguide design is one such feature, and it helps the LSR305 have a deep sound stage as well as great detail. Put another way, you can both clearly hear everything in your mix, and make accurate sonic judgements.

Ported design means more accuracy at low volume levels

Checking your mix at low volume levels is a great way to confirm your overall balances, but many monitors will suffer in the bass regions when monitoring at low levels. The JBL LSR305 uses JBL's patented Slip Stream low-frequency port for accurate bass response at low playback levels. The double-flared port shape also reduces the turbulence some ported designs suffer from, meaning that bass response remains pure when you turn the LSR305 back up.

Wide sweet spot equals a better studio experience

We're engineers, musicians, and producers, too - we know you don't spend every second of your studio time in the perfect mixing position. JBL LSR305 monitors have a wide sweet spot, which means there's less variation in what you hear when you're not in the perfect position. Especially if you have clients in the room, you want consistent sound throughout your studio, and you'll like what you hear from the LSR305.

JBL LSR305 Active Studio Monitor Features:
  • Bi-amped active studio monitors with 5" LF driver and 1" HF driver
  • Exceptionally wide frequency range for more accurate mixes
  • Image Control Waveguide creates a detailed and dimensional stereo image
  • HF and LF trim controls let you fine-tune the speakers to your room's acoustics
  • XLR and TRS balanced inputs give you low-noise performance with your studio gear
  • Sold individually
The JBL LSR305 is a great mixing solution for any studio!

Speakers like being at a live concert

These JBL LSR 305 speakers have the best sound that I have ever heard from a computer. I listen to you-tube performances of classical music a lot. And the sound is just like I was at the actual concert and for many You-Tube performances it is just as if I was sitting right next to the performer. Like I said in the review for the cables that went along with these speakers, I am a newbie to sound production. My expertise is getting beautiful sound out of a piano. I had no idea what speakers to get for the Creation Station I just got. But that was no problem --if you do not know ask and you have an answer. Anyway I really thank Sweetwater for helping me set up a real music studio. Soon I will be doing recording of my own performances and compositions. Thanks so much Sweetwater for making my journey to producing music possible and actually relaxing and fun

What a value!

Based on all the reviews here, including those from professional sound people, I decided to purchase a pair for my home-computer DAW. I could not be happier. The bass response is the best I've ever heard in this size of monitor: crisp and punchy and unmuddy. And there is a noticeable transparency through the higher frequencies that allows me to hear every instrument more clearly than before.

Simply amazing!

I needed to get a good pair of reference monitors but didn't have a big budget. At the advice of a good friend of mine, as well as Matt Adams from Sweetwater, I went with the JBL's. I am simply amazed by how great they sound! Tight lows, crisp highs, and everything in between, with great stereo separation. I would highly recommend these if you are on a budget. You won't regret it.

Monitors that translate!

I just bought a pair of the LSR305 monitors for my home studio and could not be more pleased with them. I have been having issues in the past with my mixes not translating and didn't realized before I bought these how much my old monitors where inhibiting my mixes. With these new monitors what you hear is what you get. these monitors are loud and clear and accurate. Based on reviews I went the 305s instead of the 308s. I'm mixing in a 10' X 12' room and these monitors sound great. Even for a 5" monitor the bass sounds great and I can get an accurate mix. If you're concerned about the power rating 41W LF/41W HF, don't be. These monitors a much louder and clearer than my old 75W LF/45W HF monitors. The imaging is fantastic. Not only can I mix better with these monitors but I can also mix much quicker. I can't believe how inexpensive these monitors are, I got my in Feb 2014 when Sweetwater had buy one get one 1/2 off sale. I was saving up to buy a pair of $1500 monitors but so glad I held out and got these. If you have a home studio and need monitors that can translate your mixes but don't have a big budget these are definitely the monitors to get!

Just what I needed

I listened to these JBL's, KRK 5's, and even the yamaha HS5's, and the JBL's are fantastic especially for this price range. The bass is tight and doesn't have the mid boost like the yamahas. A clear winner out of the three in my opinion

Sweetwater Advice

Derek Senestraro

The JBL LSR305 monitors are fantastic - and a great value. I like them so much I just bought my wife a pair for her office!! They translate mixes well and just sound legit. Tight low end and very accurate mids. Hard to believe they are so inexpensive!

Cody Kraus

No single addition to my home studio has made a greater impact on the quality of my mixes than JBL LSR305 studio monitors. They deliver an accurate representation of low end that I can trust will translate to consumer playback systems, like my car and home theater setup.
