Best Reference Monitors in this Price Range
MrTesla, 13.11.2017
Buying a reference monitor for a home studio is a simply yet daunting task. I've been researching for the past 9 months and have tried out countless studio monitors including the Yamaha HS7, Adam A5X, KRK's and other stuff in this price range. The thing that does these monitors for me is that they have room correction EQ and amazing clarity. Reference monitors aren't supposed to sound good yet these sound both revealing and amazing. Their room correction EQ doesn't help you clear out specific issues like flutter echo but it helps you get rid of big problems like bass build-up. This is by far the best reference monitor in its price range.

Focal Alpha 50
JuKe808, 19.12.2018
This are very good sounding speakers, better than any in their price class. Smooth highs, solid bottom end , unique for speakers in this size, flat frequency responce, good instrument separation, but build quality is like a lottery, you should double check them for minor flaws like side panel rattlings, loud amplifier noises when idle using balanced cables and weakness of hf and lf knobs adjustments(they should move tightly), proper units should not have any of this issues. Customer support of Focal is below average level. Very good speakers for electronic music production. Finally, its french made, so deal with that.

Never thought they sound so good
Vecinu, 30.06.2020
I did lots of research before I finally baught them.
Packaging of shipment was really protective and it took me some time to open it.
Wasn't sure if I will get the flat sound I was looking for but as soon as I fired them up I was blown away !
Played some songs on youtube and there were lots of subtleties I never heard until I had these monitors.
The studio I use them in has about 18 square meters and I did some basic acoustic treatmant ( bass traps in corners and some foam on walls in first and second points of reflection )
So if you have small bedroom studio and want a really good value for money studio monitors you should definately get them but make sure you do the minimal acoustic treatment of the room.
P.S I baught them with the milenium supports that I mounted to my desk.

Great sounding monitors
Mr. Tee, 30.03.2020
I only had these for few days, since one of them was defect.
Soundwise, they sound excellent. Bass is really an strong point for the size of these. It goes low, and it stays together.

I did read that there may be build quality issues, and I was one of the unlucky ones. Other monitor was defected electrically and the front baffle on both had glue residues.
May just be bad luck too.
