    Better than I expected

    I use these in my office with my desktop computer. They are small, but sound terrific. I do not use them as studio monitors, but they could be, no problem.

    Great for cheap monitors

    Wow! Great neutral sound. The high end is crystal clear and reveals lots of nuance that would otherwise go unheard. The bass response is pretty nonexistent, as indicated by the frequency response specs, but then using a subwoofer between them is a simple fix.

    Whatever you do don't underestimate these speakers, they would do great in most any home recording environment and are an awesome upgrade if you've been using mediocre headphones or multimedia speakers.

    Good Value for the Price

    Recently got these and I'm very impressed with the sound quality you get for the low price of these monitors.

    Don't Let Size Fool You

    These Monitors are very detailed for the price, decent low end an the top end shines. The mids are little fuzzy but still I great value for the musician or composer on a budget. SWEETWATER ROCKS!!!!!!

    Accuracy on a Budget

    Basically what I would expect from a pair of monitors at this price. While, lacking a bit in the low-end department these little guys give pretty good mid and high range definition. If you are a broke college student like I am and need a stepping stone to a better set of monitors or you need a cheap set for your secondary setup these will get the job done. They are plenty loud and fairly bright.
    Aux input and headphone out on the front panel is useful and they aren't huge but pass the weight test, in my opinion, so if you have limited space this is another benefit.
    No speakers are 100% honest and listening to mixes (and commercial recordings) on multiple systems is important, take notes, know your monitors. Your listening skills are more important than how 'accurate' your monitors may be...for ninety-nine bones these ain't bad. I've had them for about half a year and no fuzzy anomalies yet (fingers X'd) I've heard stories of Samson's QC but no complaints from this purchase. Sweetwater had it to me in two days.
