One of the most balanced near-field monitors on the market
Crosslinking, 15.02.2018
I am using these monitors in my home studio, producing techno-house-electronica and some commercial projects like soundtracks, foley-making for movie projects. I use them to form an equilateral triangle with me with a distance of 1.2 meters.

Sound is pretty clear and balanced or so called "flat" that I didnt bother calibrating them for the room or the positions. Lets speak with the numbers; checked them between 40hZ-31.5khZ range (limits of the calibrated device). Deviation from the flat line was not more than 5dB for at 50hZ out of 110dB. This is almost magic for this size. Around 2000-3000hZ there is a seems to be less than 5% deviation and till 14khZ deviation never reaches 1% again. This accuracy could be considered as very successful for its money and size.
I am using them with Sub8, therefore as they are comfortable on the high end they are also handy in low end and very satisfying with their sound.
The only drawback comes into my mind is potential fragility of the X-Art tweeters. Mine are in perfect condition. However a friend told me as if they have a very small touch they deform. Therefore you have to be careful when you are transporting them or using them in an environment where children can approach the equipment.
These monitors are very cost effective and promising with their sound. I would recommend it for a home user looking for a 5" speaker that has extreme clarity on high-end of the frequency scale.

good monitors with one but ...
Evgeniy Krivoshein, 29.04.2019
sound very decent, functionality at a height, convenient volume control and switching on (all on the front panel), commutation cable included (albeit unbalanced, but still) the build quality is good, but as the volume increases, phase inverters start to flicker, it is expected from such a small designs and it is better to use them with a subwoofer that should be considered when buying, and so I am very pleased
