Accurate, spot-on midfields at a ridiculous price
These are fantastic monitors. I've been using them for over a year now. At first (I thought) they made the bass in my mixes sound way to muddy and the high end sound just awful... then I realized that was the way my mixes actually sounded.
When KRK says they're good down to 30 Hz. they're not kidding. I don't know what made me think I could ever mix a tight low end on my old 6.5" nearfields. Even KRK E8s (which I love) don't translate low end as well as these. The high end seems a little harsh because you REALLY hear everything, but now I know that when it sounds good, it really IS good.
Be aware that although the literature describes these as nearfields OR midfields, they're really midfield monitors. I mean you've got 10" woofers - they've gotta be placed far back enough (5' at least) to hear the low end properly. Inevitably room reflections come into play, thus phase cancellation problems, etc. I had to to treat my room for sound - big time - before I was truly comfortable with what I was hearing. Of course I would have needed to do that for any midfields. But I saved so much by buying these that I was able to afford the sound treatment, too!
