Amazing Monitors
HappyCustom, 31.01.2020
I've had the Shape Twins for a month now, can finally give a fair review.

The build quality is excellent and the monitors look fantastic. There is a real attention to detail in the monitor design, as you would expect from Focal.

Sonically the monitors are fantastic, however, it is not a flat monitor - It has a specific character. The low-mids are forward and the high-mids to top end is very sweet if not slightly under-pronounced. Making the monitor very soft on the ear and you can work for long hours without fatigue. The stereo imaging is really amazing and you will be amazed when re-listening to your music library at how well you are able to pick out details in the music.

The passive radiator is my favorite thing about the monitor, producing well controlled solid low end without any artifacts and allowing you freedom to place the monitors closer to the back wall.

The only thing that could be improved is the low and high frequency control knobs. At first I though it would not be a problem but the fact it is not indented makes it hard to set both exactly the same and it can accidentally be adjusted when you switch on the monitor.

Taken me to next level
Duke888, 02.06.2018
You know when they say the most important part of your setup is the monitors? Well I understand it now.
Im coming from cheaper monitors. Since swapping to these the difference in my mix quality is night and day. They give great feedback. I find myself needing to reference on other systems a lot less now. If I mix on these, then I know it will translate well. It's saved me so much time in my productions.

The speakers are sensitive, show up all transients and details. If your interface is low quality these will really show it. So think about what you are pairing these with to get the best out of them and use good quality XLR cables.

I didn't want to drop the star on quality. The speakers are very handsome and functionally nothing wrong with them. Some people complain about the auto power feature but I had no issues, its very convenient.
But there are just a couple of niggles.
1. The EQ filter knobs have no click at all, not even for 0. It forces you to go around the back of the speaker to line up properly. Even a small adjustment does alter the sound so it would be nice to have a few notches.
2. The screw in feet are a bit of a fiddle. They are just screws with rubber on the end and the head is not fixed. The speakers are tall and heavy! So adjusting the feet is a bit of a pain and l I had one of them fall over.

Really I would say 4.5 for quality and I wouldn't hesitate to buy them again.
