Amazing Studio Monitors
agim lubonja, 24.03.2020
Received today the package from Thomann. Way to enjoy these amazing monitors these sad days of quarantine mostly inside the house. Great package like a rock. Very good quality build as I have checked to watch and listen on YT before I decided to have also these monitors in my room. Connected them to my soundcard through balanced ins and outs. I did optioned for the +2 db in the HF Trim and the sound came in very very good quality and I could not believe to my ears how good is their response to the signal. Also my first thought was to read carefully the instructions and by this, I did not move the Selectable input Sensitivity switch and I left it where it was from the factory, at -10 dbv. The sound came perfect. My soundcard has a +3 dBu max. output level. The JBL switch goes to +4 dBu. For this time I'm running them to -10. The last thing. I have read also the reviews here before I did the purchase and went and became a little hesitant reading about that hizzzz that some people did complain. No sir! They don't hizzz. So glad I did choose JBL. Highly recommend. Thank You!

Excellent value for money
audiouser, 03.01.2020
Excellent value for money, with a strong sound stage and a good amount of bass - not completely flat so perfect for casual listening - music, movies, etc. They also work well in larger rooms as a portable audio system as they're not too heavy so you can carry them around on your shoulder in the Gator G-STUDIOMON1 bag also available here if you don't want to buy a full PA system.

They do have a noticable hiss which is fine in my use case but you will be able to hear it in a smaller room when nothing is playing. If that bothers you seek a different product. The hiss is constant at all volumes. Also worth noting don't try turning these up to 10 and play films through without normalization, if you hit something that peaks the audio output like an explosion the speakers briefly cut off and the driver restarts. 6-7 is the sweet spot for me, but will depend on your audio source.

Build quality is okay but don't expect anything premium, things aren't glued flush for example. These speakers are much more about the sound for the price than overall build quality.

Works well with the JBL LSR310S subwoofer if you want extended bass response (or added earthquakes) in your setup.

Better than people think
Gary H, 01.09.2020
I looked at a lot of budget monitors which eventually led me down the road of researching the JBL 30xP series. I found a really in depth analysis which the consensus was that they are the best bang for your buck;

I actually looked into the history of JBL and how the name actually came to be; James Bullough Lansing was a pioneering audio engineer who contributed greatly to loudspeaker manufacturing.

It turns out they're owned by Samsung which probably explains the affordability. Still, pretty cool stuff.

I initially bought the 306P but for the room I was placing them in, they are too much. Bass traps are much more apparent than the 305P and very audible from the other side of my house. Therefore I coupled my 306Ps with my Yamaha HS8s in and what a combo they are! When you go from listening to both of them together to each of the pairs individually, wow you realise how flat the Yamaha HS8s are. Also the JBLs aren't perfect but there's much less noticeable dip in clarity through the spectrum when I listen to each of them isolated.

Totally recommend

Totally worth it!
Colm McDonagh, 09.05.2020
I have purchased these monitors back in early March and was amazed as soon as I opened the box. Crisp, clear, and reliable from day one.

Pros:
Sleek and stylish design suitable for anywhere.

Wide compatibility for any interface with XLR and TRS inputs.

Independent LF and HF control to tweak the monitors to the acoustics of your room.

Durable Build wich will last for years to come.

Cons:
I can't think of any!
