Upgraded from Focal Alpha 80s which were probably too big for my room. These speakers are more pleasant to work on in comparison, they don't go as low so when it comes to the low end but honestly I've not missed it. A very warm and natural sound that translates well - recommended for producers, these speakers are obviously not for mastering engineers.

HiFi look, Studio sound

If I have to choose one word to describe the sound of the Shape 50s its will be the word warm. I can listen this monitors hours with no fatigue. They work very well, even with low volume. I already made 5 mixes and all they translate well. The noise level is very low, almost identical to Yamaha HS50. Some people complain about auto standby, but it doesn't bother me. if you are in small room i strongly recommend using the monitors with the Low Shelf filter to -4db.

Pros
-They look very cool with the flax woofer and front wood finish
-The sound is natural and warm
-The mixes translate well

Cons
-A bit pricey
-The auto standby switch its located inside of the monitors.

very good speaker
mariusluk 17.08.2017
very good speaker, i have also focal CMS 40. and comparing them to shape 50, shape 50 have a lot of clarity and bass but they sound unnatural. maybe i am used to the sound of cms40 but listing to a jazz concert I've attended the cms 40 sound was closer to the reality even if the shape have a lot more fine detail.

Excellent sound

I'm a professional musician but not an audio engineer. I won't try and be too pretentious or even attempt to be articulate in this review.... But for me, in my small studio, these sound fantastic. I'd highly recommend them.
