Decent versatile monitors for starting out
Padraig D. 23.07.2014
These were my first monitors and I used them for playing studio recordings and practically everything else on my PC too. I even used them once on stage, inside an 'empty' upright piano, with a CD player while pretending to play piano. And it sounded very convincing. This probably also demonstrates the sound level of these speakers. If you have a small studio space, these will be more than loud enough. Ok, so real studio monitors probably shouldn't have treble, bass controls on them. However, if your use is more casual hobby than critical application, then these's should suffice. The tone controls means you can use them for playing movies, music etc. as well. And these will last you a long time. I had them 2 years without a problem. I then upgraded to different speakers.


amazing studio speakers

Pros-nice sounds clarity and controls in panel helps in time
Cons-Designed like computer speakers
I really recommend this product due its portability and sound quality


Really Impressed

I wanted basic active monitors for my little bedroom studio, but didn't have a high budget. These guys were actually the cheapest I could find! So I wasn't particularly expecting much.

Thats why I was so shocked by how good the sound quality and volume actually is. The bass and treble EQ's work very well, and the volume the speakers allow really surprised me.

They are quite handy to connect to a mixing desk, and a mic/guitar can easily go through them! Very happy.


Good for the price

These are not professional speakers by any means. But as basic speakers for home studio monitors or for pc speakers, they do the job.
Pros. Cheap, decent sound and don't take up too much space.
Cons. Only RCA speaker connectors rather than 1/4" jack's so needed to buy a jack to RCA cable. But not a big issue.
Overall good value for money.
