Way better than what you pay for

02.06.2014
I heard these at a retailer in germany and was immediately sold. They are possibly the best monitors you can get for the price, and the 8" version is really impressive with its deep low-end but still clear and distinctive middle-range, that is without the slightest hint of getting muddy. The highs are crystal clear and really neutral.

I've played a bunch of different tracks through these (including my own), and the impressive resolution at which they articulate different instruments is in its own class. It feels as if I can pick the drums, guitars and vocal tracks from the air with my hands.

And all this is treated with an easy sound to listen to. They don't make your ears tired even after longer sessions of listening, and this is something that can't be said of many proper monitors. Read: unlike monitors, HIFI speakers are usually easy to listen to, rendering them not good for monitoring and not really honest with the sound if you ask me - where monitors often are a little rough on the ears if used for longer sessions.

If you get these, remember not to place them near a corner, though. Doing so will muddle up the sound completely and boost the bass ridiculously. This is mostly due to the rear-firing reflex port.

Superb!!!

10.03.2016
Top quality service & delivery from Thomann once again.

The product itself is just top class for the price range.

Excellent clarity of sound with a deep punchy bass and impressive, funky, retro, red look.....

Would definitely recommend these speakers for any type of studio setup.
