Amazing Value and Bang for Buck
Stephen662, 10.02.2020
I'd done the research, read the reviews and bitten the bullet.

Little did I expect such a great pair of FRFR Speakers when I plugged them in and connected up. I'm driving these from a GR-55 guitar synth currently (soon to be joined by an SY-1000), so the range of tones goes from deep bass to sparkling tops. And these speakers just handle it beautifully. I have yet to power them up to full volume, and using them at home, volume setting 2 seems loud enough, without thinking about turning up to eleven!

There ae no buzzes or hisses or strange atrifacts: just what goes in comes out pristine. Clear and uncoloured.

It's nice to see the extra inputs on the back, so I can accomodate a jam partner, or indeed connect extra inputs for myself, like a looper or drum machine / synth.
Ditto for the output to PA or other gear. I have not touched the EQ switches as I found no need, but will experiment in due course.

The build quality is above what I expected for the price, and I have these not in my studio, but in the living room sat under the TV shelf! They are just about the same size as a pair of domestic Hi-Fi speakers and look sweet. I believe you can remove the Headrush logo from the front grille, but I'm OK with it.

Worth mentioning is I have these on the floor in the upright position: since I'm not going to use a lot of volume using at home this sounds fine. Of course you can mount these on a pole if you are gigging with them: suitable for small to medium venues I reckon. For a larger gig, they can be put horizontally on the floor and are angled up towards you, so great for monitors, with the output feeding the house PA.

They are of moulded contruction, so should take the road nicely. I'd get a cover though or keep the great packaging they arrived in from Thomann (double boxed). Obviously, I can't comment on reliability as these are brand new. But, I think in all honesty, they will provide years of service if not abused.

Total rating; 10 out of 10... which I reckon is rare!

price renders the sound quality
Bubr77, 06.01.2021
I have connected it to my Zoom G5n and the sound was... muffled and undefined. It is advertised as an FRFR speaker cabinet for guitar multieffects, but in all honesty this unit feels like a low quality hi-fi monitor. It is very heavy on the bass end of the sound spectrum and it's difficult to EQ it out. Unfortunately, I AB'ed it against the Atomic CLR and these two felt worlds apart. Headrush FRFR sounds as if someone smothered it with a heavy blanket. I think it is not worth its price - as you will never come close to a good guitar cabinet sound. I believe it's better to invest a little more and enjoy a better quality sound if you're after using it with a guitar modeler. For other purposes it maybe ok I believe, sth like connecting it to PC and watching YT, but for the guitar modeler sounds - no. The marketing then is misleading. Thumbs down.

Good enough for my needs
Zanek, 22.11.2019
Pros:
- lightweight
- loud enough
- simple to use
- low noise
- two combined XLR/Jack inputs with separate volume regulation

Cons:
- resonance in low frequencies when laying on the floor (stand solves it)
- loss of clarity in high volumes (but it is not intended to be used as PA for big crowds)
- it is rebranded Alto monitor which can be bought for lower price

Overall: good as monitor for Headrush Pedalboard, perfect for home use at low and mid volumes. I can definitely recommend it.

GregSnow, 11.11.2020
it is much worse (boomy especially) than Harley Benton FRFR-112A, which costs the same.
