Does the job!!
DawMan, 06.05.2020
I use these as alternate monitors in my project studio and they sound just fine. They have a decent bass response and I can hear the low frequencies quite clearly all the way up to the high mids. They have a bass boost switch in case your room has you struggling to hear the low end, but you can also cut all the low to get the bass out of the way and give you a more accurate picture of your mix.
They are connected by one balanced jack which links the other speaker. This seems a bit cheap to me but they probably managed to cut some cost to bring the monitor's price point lower. They are quite light also. Most people will see this as a red flag. For the price however the sound response is quite accurate and does not exaggerate frequencies too much. This also depends on your room size, treatment etc.
I have mixed on these and found I was able to achieve an overall balanced sound without too much mud in the low mids. You could also look at these monitors like the old NS10's in that if you can make your mix sound really good on these then it should easily translate across to other monitors.
There is no posturing here, these monitors do a decent job but of course their price is an indication of the build and quality of the parts. If you are mixing in your bedroom you will find these a worthy consideration. These monitors are not Genelec but they are also not trying to be. They can also get nice and loud when you need to drive the signal a bit more.
Overall a worthy choice for any style of music. you could pair them with the HD9's or HD10's and switch between the two to make sure your getting an even balanced mix.

Hard to beat at this price range
Mixter, 05.03.2021
Was looking for a decent pair of monitors without breaking the bank. I couldn't ask for more at this price range. I feed them with a UMC1820 which is hooked up to my main computer by USB, as well as my synths by their line outputs.

VERY powerful bass, which is probably what most people prefer, but personally I think it's just a tad too much (even with the bass boost set to OFF), so perhaps a little boomy for my taste. But no problem really, just use EQ to cut the bass a tiny bit and have no other complaints on the sound, well balanced registers and quite clear sound. Very powerful overall, I rarely turn the volume knob up more than to about 9 o'clock, or about 20-25%.

Pros: Balanced line inputs, as well as unbalanced RCA. (Note, do NOT plug in both RCA and line jacks at the same time, even if only using one at a time, because the circuitry amplifies the signal way too much, which means you could probably blow the speakers.)

Heavy and sturdy, which is a pro in my book.

Built-in transformer.

3.5mm headphone output on the front, with all other connections at the back.

Cons:
I personally would prefer a 6.35mm headphone output instead of 3.5mm

All in all, great value for not much money!

I cannot believe how good thee are for the money!
pieman, 08.09.2017
these monitors are amazing for the money! they give good stereo spread and (in the room I use them in) get very loud indeed!

the headphone out on the monitors is handy and they sit on my Glorious Workbench as if they where made for it.

Very , Very happy with them.

As a side note, the monitors arrived faulty and I contacted Thomann for a replacement.

I'd just like to say that I live in the UK so if your worried about aftercare don't be. the customer support is astonishing. Absolutely no problem, they sent a returns note (that even had instructions for the post office counter clerk) and they informed me that my replacement set was set aside for me before I had even returned the faulty ones.

I cannot recommend Thomann enough, the best selection of products and the best customer support I have ever experianced,

Support them...you'll be glad you did

Good Monitors for a production/ music student
José Lobo, 04.01.2021
It's a fair price for these two monitors, since they perform well and have a good pair of adjustments that can make them sound better in different environments, although the switch button being in the back still makes me mad. The transient response is okay, expectable from the property of the cones. I think they are suited for beginner students looking forward to the studio life, or just mixing alternate support monitors to review your mixes.
