Good for begginers

I use these for my music production, mixing and mastering, and of course listening to music.

Pros:

- Good quality in sound, you can adjust the highs and the lows at the back of the monitor to fit your rooms reverb/dampening.

- You can make them loud and i mean LOUD.

- the colours are nice, they blend in with my desk i ordered ''Glorious Workbench white
Producing Workstation'' very nicely, doesn't get dirty at all, no finger prints or anything of the sorts, easy to maintain. ( though i can imagine the holes for bass get dusty after a long time )

- The body of these is quite strong and would probably survive a fall from a small height but no more than once. ( i don't recommend trying that out though)

Negatives:

- The lows are sadly barely there with the cutoff at 45Hz you can hear barely any bass with some of the tracks that reach that low bass zone, in this case my music doesn't sound as good sometimes because i'm missing that ONE frequency. i suggest just getting a subwuffer or buy bigger version of these monitors, either 6 or higher if you want that loud bass.

- The speakers them selves are very delicate so if you have children or a cat/animal that can get to them they can be easily damaged suggest keeping at high points away from reach of anyone other than you.

- One of my KRK rokit 5s came scarred with a big mark on one of the corners so i suspect someone has dropped it before it was packaged, so like i said, the body is strong, the monitor still works, but the mark will stay there forever now. the small plastic logo with he light inside it as well, came out when i unpacked it.

Overall:

it's a pretty good product, for beginners only though, if i were to replace these i would go with the 6 inch or above ones because the bass really is needed here.

KRK RP5 RoKit G3
Anonymous 13.10.2016
I'm using the KRK RP5's in my own little studio @ home.

They have excellent stereo image, great sound clarity for material that's excellently done (Sting, Toto, Mylene Farmer, Janet Jackson).

Once you get a song sounding good on these speakers, after hours of working on them, the song will definitely sound excellent on all other references, because they're very linear.

The general sound of these speakers is very crisp (except somewhere around 180-260 hz in the low freq area where I can feel a slight amplifiying in these speakers). This is a good thing because in that area there's usually a build-up in frequencies in songs, accumulated from all the present instruments / channels, that if not take care carefully, your song can sound bad on other reference or non-reference speakers.

Because the low-drivers are 5'', you cannot hear the sub-bass that much (as in 6'' or 8'' woofers).

The sub-frequencies are actually audible, but you really need to position the speakers perfectly in your studio room, with at least 60-80 cm distanced from you, at your left and right, so the low frequencies can have space to reach your ear.

For this budget they are excellent, have knobs in the back for room adjustments and they also auto-shut-off, when the signal is not present for 30 mins (when you're not working).

There are better speakers on the market, but these are a good choice if you're on a budget. Match them with a good studio acoustic, and they will Only issue I'd flag is that I've found the noise floor to be quite annoying at times - I'm sure you could find quieter speakers elsewhere. It's typically not been an issue though.

Great for a Project / Home Studio
Anonymous 25.06.2015
If you're in the market for a cheap yet high quality small monitor then I would highly recommend these.

After seeing a mixed bag of reviews surround these monitors I decided to give them a try myself. I would add that I am most certainly not disappointed. Incredibly sturdy and aesthetically pleasing.

They aren't perfectly flat with regards to frequency response, with a small boost of 1-2 dBs in the lower mids. However with the useful addition of upper and lower mid controls on the back, they can be tailored to suit most rooms.

Plenty of connections on the back so there are many ways to easily set them up.

Fantastic for a home or project studio with either a low budget and or space restrictions.

I use these KRK in my home studio

The only disadvantage - sleeping mode, sometimes it's hard to get back to work without any delay.

A good place to start!

Bought a set of these as my first studio monitors. The frequency response isn't quite as flat and transparent as others in this price range and the bass can be pretty "boomy" at times even with the front ported design, and placement of these speakers in your room seems to be pretty important in getting them to sound right!

The added EQ and level controls on the back panel is pretty useful and helps tailor the speakers to you room easier.

All in all, a decent monitor for the price!

Decent for the price

Although I don't have much experience with many different monitors, I think these are quite alright. They sound fairly flat to me, not to shrill, not bassy. Well, they aren't really capable of reproducing substantial bass, nor are they meant to. What bothers me about these monitors is the amount of hiss they produce. While it may be my fault (grounding, or lots of wires or whatever) I don't think it is, since I did everything I could to eliminate things that could produce noise and it is still there. It is not terrible, but certainly noticeable. Other than that I like everything about Rokits. The design, the feel of the knobs, the sound. A solid lower-budget option I would say.

Good speakers for the beginning producer
Steven S 14.11.2018
I bought two of these one year ago and these are very good entry-level speakers.

The sound is very neutral and can go quite loud. High and mid range are crystal clear. It also shuts itself down after a while if it does not receive an input signal, but pops right back on when it does. Good for energy savings.

I was able to compare them to the RP8s and noticed that the depth of bass was lacking in these speakers. The 45Hz cutoff seemed like a minor something when reading up on human hearing, but the difference is there. This is unfortunate as I notice myself turning to my headphones to listen if the bass comes on well. I will probably have to buy a subwoofer to compensate for this. But, given the price I paid for these speakers, this is only a minor detail.

Be careful if you buy these in a bundle with stand-alone supports. The speakers are heavy (though sturdy) and any clumsy friends or family members could knock them right to the ground. Also, make sure you power them on and off properly to avoid crackles which can damage the speakers.

One big disadvantage, the power cables are very short, so it is not in your best interest to have you sockets far off.

Very good studio monitor. 1 little negative point is that te basses are boosted so the sound is not always "real". Advisable monitor for house producers though.
