Don't waste your money! Here's something way better for a similar price.

Summary: This is the second pair of consumer-grade powered M-Audio desktop monitors I've owned in less than 4 years. The amp inside the first pair died after only 1 year, and the amp inside this pair also died after 3 years. The amps don't simply die all at once -- they gradually fizzle out over time in noticeable ways (one or both speakers will develop volume/static/clipping/hum).
Summary: Sound quality was great when they worked, but I'm not an audiophile by any means. These were my first "real speakers" after having cheap logitechs throughout high school and college. I did research for about 2 weeks before I decided on these speakers. I really liked the price point for what they offered. I never had issues with the sound quality despite having them slightly below ear level.
Summary: I like to get into DJ projects as a hobby only and didn't want to purchase anything to expensive or elaborate, but I didn't want to compromise quality either. M-Audio is a high quality brand and the manufacturer stands by its mark. I feel i was fortunate to be able to purchase them at such a great price. I don't have any complaints about the shipping experience either since delivery was on time and the product was damage free.
Summary: These are my first studio monitors so I don't really have anything to compare them too, but they sound great! I had old computer speakers prior to these and I needed something more updated for my recording studio! The difference was immense! It sounds incredibly clean and flat. It has a nice sleek look. It gets loud, and it does its job very well. My one tip for people who buy this though.. is to make sure that you position them the right way!
Summary: Hey everyone these speakers are for music production, they are flat tuned for a reason. When in music production you dont want extra heavy bass or any other frequency modification, so don't buy these if you plan to rock the party. These speakers are for music production studios. I just got a pair for my home recording studio and they are great for the price.
Summary: People, these are studio monitors. These are not just speakers, if you want something that would be good for house parties and stuff like that, this is not what you are looking for. But, as a music producer of many genres, I love them. I've only used one other set of monitors costing $300 before, and I think these are just as good if not better.
