Treat your room!
Jordgubb 24.09.2021
When I first got these monitors I felt quite bad because I literally couldn't hear the C3 frequency. This was because the sound bouncing on the wall canceled out the sound coming directly from the monitors. I had 4 mattresses lying around so I built a little half cubical around my desk and this made the sound not drop out at important frequencies. Of course the frequency dips in some places but nothing drops out completely.
If there is something I would have wanted it would have been a little more precise settings on the speaker for room treatment. I have it set on max boost on the low frequencies and max decrease on the highs. And I think I would have turned them even more if I had the chance. I guess I just have to treat my room a little more but I am satisfied with the sound now

As a side note I really enjoy not wearing headphones all the time. There is a big difference between headphones and monitors, but in my humble opinion I feel like you can't go wrong with headphones (despite the annoyance of wearing them and not being able to play sound to other people in the room). You might not hear the bass all that well through headphones and you will certainly not feel it but the sound is much more accurate through headphones (if you have good ones). I sort of feel like playing music through my speakers muddies up the sound a bit. The stereo difference is also big and I feel like the monitors brings more warmth and emotion than the very accurate ( and robotic, if you will,) sounding headphones might be doing. It feels like I can pinpoint right where the sound is coming from somewhere between the monitors while in mono and the hardpanned sounds are not as hardpanned! I've been using the DT 770 PRO and i still use them when I want the sound to be more "accurate". If you can afford monitors I would recommend!

A problem I had was the sound of my computer. It isn't loud, but it brings this hiss to listening through monitors that my headphones would have blocked. I sort of solved this issue by strapping my computer to the underside of my standing desk. This mixed with the fact that I have matresses for walls and a matt on the floor makes the computer hard to hear and it is ideal for monitor listening!

Best monitors in the price range without a doubt but...
BramVB 08.05.2018
These are some amazing studio monitors for the price I have to say. The sound is very clear and punchy. Low end is tight and sub heavy, highs are crisp and smooth. I have been using these for about a month now and I'm pretty happy with them. The build quality is decent as well. But they do have some things that I really dislike in terms of design itself.

#1: On/off light is on the back, not the front. What's the point of this light if you can't see it? Really annoying that I need to go to the back just to check the status. Many other brands in the same price range have this. It's Just a stupid decision imo.
#2: When turning the volume knob on the monitors it lightly crackles when playing music through them. This is on both units so I'm sure it's the same on all of them.
#3: Back ported bass ports. All Adam's previous models have been front ported, why change now? Their PR rep claims it's to keep costs down? This doesn't make sense because all their previous research and development has been with front ported models. Changing now does not make sense 'to keep costs down'. Their previous 'budget' model the F series had this, so all the PR talk about doing this to keep the cost low is simply not true.
#4: Only one balanced input. An extra TRS input would have been nice. They keep saying this is to keep to cost down, fair enough. But why can a lot of other companies that make models in the same price range do these things but not Adam Audio?

So all in all, great monitors sound wise. But with some ridiculous design decisions for sure. Their previous 'budget' series (F series) had both front ported bass ports and an essential on/off light on the front so it's really stupid they decided to drop these features. I would have
easily paid ¤50 to a ¤100 more for these (imo) essential features.

Great "Hi-Fi" speakers, poor studio monitors
bencyl 27.02.2020
I bough this monitors for my home studio and I create mainly country/rock/metal songs. I was picking between these and Yamaha HS 7 in this price range, which I know very well since my friend owns them for a long time. We compared them and they are very different; here is why.

Features:
Points Im about to make are expressed in many online reviews, so Im going to be short. Speakers are kinda bulky in size, compared to Yamaha, but they also have 0,5" bigger speaker. Volume knob is in the back, and 0dB position is on a weird spot (like 2 o`clock) and with NO NOTCH, so its difficult to know where you are. There are HF and LF +/- 2 dB corrections and a power on light IN THE BACK, which is just not practical.

Quality:
Very well build, no problems here.

Sound:
Here we go. A lot of people find this monitors to be more like Hi-Fi than monitors, and I agree. When you compare them to Yamahas and listen to some produced music, they sound lively and not dull in comparison. But when you mix music and compare to Yamahas or different speakers (car, headphones,...), you see that Adams portray mix much nicer than it really is. On them, guitars sound rich and full, bass is just at a right spot, drums are very articulate and so on. But other sources show that guitars are dull, bass is to low because Adams project too much bass, drums get covered up and so on. Yamahas show all that, and those corrections in the mix would be possible listening on them.

So in conclusion, Adams are great for producing to give you a nice feeling when composing. For mixing, I wouldnt pick them over Yamaha HS7 in this price range. Feature flaws are kind of embarrassing for company like Adam, but the build quality is very nice. Maybe EDM and hardbass guys find these monitors usefull due to extended bass range, but for a guitar/drums/bass/vocals music I dont reccomend them.

RE
Sounds like it should cost a lot more than it does.
Radio Engineer 19.07.2018
I bought a pair of these monitors as replacements for my KRK Rokit 8 Gen 1s. The difference in sound quality really is very impressive. The T7Vs sound accurate, controlled and extremely detailed, allowing you to hear absolutely everything in your mix.

The signature Adam tweeter gives you the distinctive 'silky' highs, and the woofer delivers tight and accurate bass. The mid-range detail is superb. Placement of sounds on the stereo sound stage is rock solid, with a clear phantom center. I could not hear any unnatural lumps or dips in the frequency response.

They really can easily compete with much more expensive speakers. I had that experience of being able to hear things that I could not hear before with my KRKs (and they even appeared to beat my AKG headphones for detail). At work I use Neumann and Genelec speakers, and these really do compare favorably with those top end models.

Build quality is excellent as far as I can tell.

Downsides? Well these do a great job on the bass, but you may want to add a sub if you work primarily on bass-centric music and want to hear the ultra low end clearly.

The bass and treble room correction EQ controls are quite rudimentary; you don't get any of the advanced correction features of higher end monitors. Not a problem for me, but if your room requires lots of correction then you may want to consider different models.

I didn't have any problems with the rear bass reflex port, but some users may experience issues if they have to place these speakers very close to a wall.

In short, top-end monitors for a low-end price.
