Great speakers for the price

TetsujinUlm, 28.04.2017
Features: These speakers have an onboard USB sound interface, which is amazing in many conditions. Especially if you are traveling, you would really love to bring these with yourself without carrying one extra kilogram of a sound interface.

Built quality: is unbelievable. You feel like they could survive a war. Classic old AKAI robustness (similar feeling to MPK25). Finish feels higher quality than what you pay.

Sound: First things first, do not expect the performance of a 2000 euro home studio setup. However what you will get will definitely be 10 times more than what you could expect from this kind of a small device. After comparing the sound with some main monitors, I have seen that activating the "Bass Boost" actually gives you a better sound (closer flatness to an expensive studio monitor).

Pros: Great sound quality for the size and the price, Built in audio interface, Sturdy body that could resist environmental effects, Very suitable for traveling with equipment, Inexpensive.

Cons: Do not expect wonders if you are trying to listen below 60Hz, No color options (white would be nice), Wouldn't be the best choice if you are listening in a room which is larger than 40m^2 and having your monitors more than 2 meters away from your ears in the listening triangle
.
To conclude: For listening rooms smaller than 30m^2, I would definitely recommend this one. Or if you are always on the road and trying to get some video or audio project sorted out go for it. Also would be a good place to start if these will be your first equipment in audio production.

Lack punch

25.03.2014
These served me well and I thought they were really good until comparing my mixes on other monitors. The mids and highs are very clear but the bass is so lacking - kind of expected from such small cones - useful for road situations though as they seem very sturdy!
