Best All-rounders for the price.
letters teko..., 12.03.2020
My Emes Waldorf monitors were up for replacement. These were over twice the price when new, so I didn't expect a fair comparison but hoped the Adams would be acceptable. Much to my surprise though, these Adams had deeper lows and higher highs than the Emes did! Moreover, they provide such a wide frequency range without becoming boomy or shouty. This gentle behaviour means the mid-range isn't pushed away like often happens with cheaper speakers.

Compared to the Yamaha HS5/HS7, the midrange is less expressive, which can be tricky when mixing guitars and vocals. But the overall frequency response is much broader, allowing for more 'air' to be heard in the mix. Also, the Yamaha's can be very tiring to listen to.

The T7V has even deeper low-end and provides more punch for bigger rooms. However, the T5V is slightly tighter in the midrange and more suitable for true near-field monitoring. Looking for Hi-Fi speakers in the living room? Get the T7V! looking for really transparent monitors in a small studio? Get the T5V! Truly the best all-round monitors for the price!

Downside: No power indicator light on the front, so it's hard to tell whether they're on or off.

Great monitors.
Sorts, 06.04.2019
I use these mostly for metal music and some electronic stuff etc. I have had these monitors about 4 months. Good time to write review.

I always was intrigued by Adam monitors ( I had null experience with ribbon monitors) , till now Adams have been little out of my price range. First I was going for Tannoys for my new monitors but Adam in this price range, I had to have these. Where I live there is not much opportunities to listen before buying so all monitors I have bough, I have bought based on reviews so I hope this helps you to decide. I am mostly home recording-song writing enthusiast. I have done it also professionally for some time but as soon as the fun part was gone and I decided to keep it more as a hobby and fun. I use pair Adam T5V in my home, no special room treatment etc. Recording, production, composing etc. you name it. In the past I have had Behringer, Yamaha and M-Audio monitors. So far Adam T5V have been the best ones. I do not know much of monitors, I just have bought the ones I could afford and felt decent monitors. So why Adam T5V are good IMHO. First and in my mind best thing, they do not fatigue ears. Yes they have been advertised that with ribbon tweeters you can work much longer period of times, and they are totally right. I have done long session 8-10 hour sessions and ears are not tired. With other monitors I have had, 8 hour session was already kind a pain. Second thing, they sound natural and "warm" ( I apologize if this is not right term but that one comes to mind). You can hear everything but it does not sound "harsh" if I am making any sense :). I do not have any experience with these monitors with dance/rap/ etc music with very deep bass so I cannot comment on that but If you are into rock/metal/ambient stuff, these work very well. Perfect for home or small studio. So if you are looking for pair of new good affordable ribbon monitors (of course there is cheaper and good monitors but with ribbon tweeters I have not yet come across) you cannot go wrong with these.

The packaging is too bad.

It's coming a long way, but the packaging was so poor that I didn't feel good.
But the sound is good.

''Your first Adam Studio Monitors''
Ben x_x, 19.04.2018
I'm using these monitors to listen and produce music, mostly House/Disco/Hip-Hop, they are set on acoustic foam on top of a pair of Gravity stands to optimize the sonic experience.

Before, i had the opportunity to listen to other monitors such as Adam A7X (wich are awesome, with a great definition in the whole frequence spectrum, if you can afford em just go for them), JBL LSR 305 (wich are truely amazing considering the price, just slightely less clear in the highs and lows than the Adam F5 or T5V), Yamaha HS7 wich lack bass imo and KRK that in this case, had too much bass... just a matter of taste i guess.

Its been about half a month i have them and i have tried several sources on them like different kind of music coming from my computer and synths and drummachines coming from a mixing desk.

So far they sound really great for this ratio price/quality, no doubt about that, build like a tank, they provide very clear highs, an awesome stereo image reproduction (pan) and tight yet deep bass. The only thing i could complain about are the mediums, i just wish they could be a little more present, on some tracks im listenning to, when it comes to pads/violin/keys, i often need to gain the mid range a little +2 or +3db on the EQ so it sounds the way i want, again, maybe thats just a matter of preferences, my ears are a bit picky now, despite this, they are really impressive you can listen to them for hours without any fatigue as the brand promise, and as they say on their website, these are the perfect choice for you if your looking for your first studio monitors, no matter what kind of music you're listenning to, you won't regret it ;)

Cheers!
