Erg goede monitors voor deze prijsklasse. Zoals in andere reviews genoemd laat de bas soms te wensen over. Maar wat verwacht je ook van deze maat woofers? Zelf ben ik erg tevreden met deze weergave, als ik sub-heavy dingen wil mixen grijp ik toch snel naar mijn koptelefoon, wil de buren wel een beetje te vriend houden.
Kortom, fantastische monitoren, met een goed, eerlijk(!) geluid. Absolute aanrader mocht je net dat stapje verder willen met muziekproductie/mixen. Wil je gewoon alleen muziek luisteren? Dan zijn er allicht betere opties, ik zie dit vooral als thuisstudio-monitoren, en daar zijn ze echt goed in.
Irritated after 3 years
07 Dec 2019
Bought them 3 year ago... used them... I noticed though, that after 3 years, I never ever ever listened to music, good music, 16/44.1 stereo files ALAC or FLAC, for more than 20 minutes... They seemed very clean speakers, very clear, very transparent, very neutral, specially when you A/B est them with other like KRK that has so much fake bass eq, JBL that sounded moody... When I tested the YAMAHA HS7 with those, the yamaha seemed so much clear, so much better quality, so much flat eq... Now, after 3 years using them, I can tell you that these speakers have an exagerated high mids, and low highs and highs, specially around the 1Khz frequency, they are bumped there, and the bump is big. I have software to EQ them, to make this effect much smaller, I make a little eq, max -3db from 650hz to 8Khz... then irritation goes away a lot, but then they sound moody, they sound like a JBL really... Specially, when I remove the EQ that I do, the flat sound from them is terrible really. Very unpleasent, you don't notice it, but you just wanna stop the music for a moment, just after 3 songs, or get your headphones... Then, the rear port for the bass, not very practical for small spaces, so if you have to put them near a wall, like 90% of people have to, there is a small reverberance, but becomes very very noticeable at low volume, so when you are just watchin youtube... the voices are less clear, that moody reverberation from the bass port on the rear, also makes you want to reach the headphones... Apart from that, great build quality for the price, better than most, great rear heatsinc, great level adjustment with notch on the center, decent little integrated eq for room that is not enough at all to combat the defects of the rear port of the irritating treble. Very well built, great aesthetics... I would have prefered power switch, porst and level wheel on the front... Also low low bass not there really, they can punch bass, but... the over trebeled sound signature kills the bass.
