Amazing speakers with a few drawbacks

Colin, Amazon
18 August 2014
  • Summary: So I'll start by saying that these studio monitors sound amazing. They produce frequencies of sound that I did not know were present in the music and sounds I was hearing until I played them through these speakers. The bass is full and deep. The middles and highs are crisp and clear.

Very good speakers that stand the test of time.

Matthew Sweet, Amazon
10 February 2014
  • Summary: I bought these over a year ago as a Christmas present for my son to hook to his iMac. They are very solid, and to my ear, very accurate. They won't blow you away when you first hear them, but you will think "yeah, those sound pretty good".

Good Speakers - but be aware of 'break in'

Blake Carpenter, Amazon
6 December 2013
  • Summary: Thankfully I saw a review on amazon that mentioned to let these 'break in'. Out of the box they sounded horrible and I felt I had made a huge mistake. After a few minutes, my opinion changed as they started to improve. At this point I feel happy with the purchase.

Good Speaker System

WALDO812, Amazon
18 July 2012
  • Summary: Lets face it, finding quality speakers that can deliver the goods and not break the bank is almost a fantasy to many of us. As a musician I'll say upfront, don't get sucked in to the hype. These speakers are by no means studio grade.

Great for apt. living

Living bicoastal, Amazon
19 October 2008
  • Summary: I'm not an audiophile but for a chick who lives in an NYC apt they're perfect. My walls are thin, my floorboards too and my neighbors used to hate the heavy bass they felt from my old sub woofer. These speakers don't have a sub woofer and I don't mind a lot at all.

Strong performance

Sammy Clemens, Amazon
3 October 2008
  • Summary: Use these speakers as they are intended to be used - as desktop speakers for your computer, or for a small home studio at your mixing board, etc. - and they perform very, very well. As others have said, if you need lots of huge, shake-your-lungs bass, etc. - get a subwoofer system.

They need to be EQUALIZED!

robwi "Rob", Amazon
17 May 2008
  • Summary: Out of the box they are much too Boomy and Bass-heavy. Blaze Audio offers a free trial for a ten band equalizer. I tried it, it worked, I purchased it for $14. PERFECTION! I was listening to the Bob Dylan 30th Anniversary Concert Celebration, Stevie Wonder, Blowin' in the Wind.

Great speakers for the price, 4.5 stars

Josh G., Amazon
5 April 2008
  • Summary: This is an honest review from someone that owns these speakers. First of all, when I opened the box, I noticed how heavy these were. It was great, I am a fan of the weight because to me they feel extremely solid.

2.0 Speaker Comparison Result: Tied for First!

Severian "Severian", Amazon
25 June 2007
  • Summary: My old Logitech Z-560 developed a short in it creating nasty crackling noises over one channel. The Z560 was a rare beast, a $140 400 watt 4.1 monster that Logitech built to really high standards to create a strong foot forward into the PC speaker market.
