These are my fav's.
Simon889, 04.11.2020
So, I have bought multiple speakers to check which ones were the best suitable for my ears, and my room.

I have a 5m x 2.3m room, and this room is properly treated, ready for mixing/mastering/production.

So I have summed down to 5 brands out of 11, the other 6 speakers were just desktop/casual listening speakers for me.

so they were all 3-3.8 inch woofer types with small cabinet builds, I have a small room, so smaller speakers meant it would be a better suit for me for both my studio and my ears, these 5 were the ones I was satisfied with, so here are my opinions about them, number 1 being the best, and 5 for the least best.

Adam A3X's - LOWS 9/10 - MIDS 8/10 - HIGHS 8/10
Eve Audio SC 203 - LOWS 8/10 - MIDS 9/10 - HIGHS 7/10
Genelecs 8010AP - LOWS 7/10 - MIDS 8/10 - HIGHS 6.5/10
Swissonic MM3 - LOWS 8/10 - MIDS 6/10 - HIGHS 5/10 - only 79 euros!
Iloud micro monitors - LOWS 9/10 - MIDS 7/10 - HIGHS 5/10

The Adams killed it, but the rest was good too and were closer to the best than any other 6 that I left out in the same size & cabinet comparison.

Small but powerfull
Antipinoff, 25.06.2018
I bought it to replace my Yamaha HS5. And.... I have no words.

They are small. really. But my room is small too.
I had an ability to compare them with the same tracks on some top near and mid-field monitors in the professional studio.

Impressions? Detalisation and deepness of stereo field. On this monitors it almost the same like on top models.
But bass on that monitors is poor. But it hasn't to be cool, look at the size of woofer. For EDM music they need a subwoofer.

Pros:
- Detalisation - 100%
- HiFreq - 100%
- Volume knob and power button on the front
- Great ability to manage a stereo field

Cons:
- Has no TS input. I think it would be not so difficult to attach this.
- One of my monitors (I have bought pair) about one week had a strange interferences. I change cable, outputs - the same. But now has no. Maybe needed a little develop or heating, I don't know, but another works well from the begining. 8/10.

In my oppinion, may be one of the best little near-field monitors in its class. Whant to record some Hard bass music? Right away add a subwoofer to your cart.

Amazing Sound!
Kosta V., 13.02.2014
I am doing professional audio related work in Germany since the year 2000.
During that time i had the opportunity to audition several more or less expensive
studio monitors in several price ranges. I bought these nearfield monitors three years ago for my home studio, and really enjoyed them since then.
Despite the small size, the woofers can reproduce frequencies down to 80 Hz without effort, with a gradual rolloff towards 60 Hz.
The tweeters sound amazingly good with exceptional good stereo field localization. The midrange is also very pleasant and accurate.
Compared to some much more expensive monitors they sound awesome. An absolute recommendation, especially for the price.

Nice
Muckily, 07.09.2020
Perfect for orchestral and surround stuff, I'm a fan of the 4.5-inch, it's space-efficient
Could always add a sub later
10/10 best value if you like the tweeter and a solid heavy construction
