I see no reason why these shouldn't be used for pure joy of listening
paparapa, 05.12.2019
Full disclosure, this was my first experience with a decent pair of speakers I have ever had. Previously I was using aux input of a cheap 13-year old LG DVD player with 2 tiny speakers and a 'subwoofer' that wouldn't go below 65Hz. I do own HD598, which I don't like, but I could wear them forever and M50X, which I adore. Also, SE215 SPE for on the go, so It's not like I jumped at BM5's straight out of the cave, but when it comes to speakers, you may say so.

I was looking for a pair of speakers for listening (I'd rather avoid Hi-Fi wording and on top of that, I'm not being sold on audiophool stuff thankfully), so the natural choice for me was a decent pair of active ones. I chose Thomann for its huge reputation and their added value services. In fact, I didn't even consider these for a long time, thinking their naming came from 5" woofer size, and I was sold on A7X until recently when I figured out that these have a bigger woofer than A7X, and extend lower (unfortunately, ADAM specifies lower limit at -15db!!!).

Sound: Natural, full sounding and non-fatiguing throughout the audible spectrum (with ISO-155). You might need a sub for hedonistic intents only.
I listen to Hardstyle & Hardcore and there's a lot of fundamentals between 30-60Hz, so I do get the impulse sometimes for that extra sub-bass grind that subwoofer provides. Otherwise, you should be fine, just find a decent position in the room. I'm still getting amazed every time I use them. So much clarity. Imaging together with depth is still surprising me. Like the sound is reaching towards me and shifting all around. Then again, I have no point of reference.

Quality: Dynaudio!

Features: Sufficient, just added 2db at the low end for the current positioning (suboptimal in every way). Mids, highs flat. In love with the auto-standby feature.

Great sound quality - great price
Matus_, 30.07.2020
Very nice and detailed sound, good stereo, flat linear sound. Quiet without signal, no noise. Strange xlr female connector, but it works normally. Im satisfied. Really recommend!

fantastic set of monitors
ellibes, 03.02.2021
I mostly work in orchestral music, and having seen that these monitors have been used by the likes of BBC and spitfire studios, I decided to go with them. I am very satisfied by the quality of these monitors.

Pros:
Good neutral sound. I had to place them close to the back wall so the low end is a bit accentuated on their default setting. However I managed to to get them close to perfectly neutral just using their inbuilt analog room filters. Did the last fine tuning of around +/- 2 db by using sonarworks.

Cons:
The auto standby feature does not work very well if you use the monitors at very low levels for everyday use. Sometimes the monitors will automatically go in standby if you are using them at low volume. However this doesn't bother me much, as I just turned off the auto standby and all is good.

Would definitely recommend!

Bright vocals
Reinaldofialho, 04.07.2019
The midrange on those monitors is very forward, it stands out. Listen vocals on those is very pleasant. However the low end is not enough in my opinion if you work electronic music on those like techno or house music. If you are going to work rock music or so they are perfect, if you are on house or techno, you better complement with a subwoofer or choose another monitor
