These make all the difference
Paul Davies, 07.09.2014
I purchased these as part of a home studio build. I had KRK Rokit monitors which despite being very good at re-producing sound had background noise and the bass levels were subdued. I read many reviews about various methods to limit the amount of vibration in speakers which in turn change the overall sound of your mix. By far the most positive was the Auralex Mopads. However due to budget constraints (I was spending allot on the keys and PC for the studio) I purchase a cheaper brand of mopads. They made almost no difference and in fact allowed my monitors to slowly move toward the edge of the shelf and almost fall off. It became clear that to get quality even in something as small as this, you have to buy a good brand. I received the mopads quickly from Thomann (always very good on shipping) and they made an immediate difference. They come in two bags (one for each set) and as well as the main pieces which the monitors sit on, you have various wedges which can be added to change the angle in 5 different ways so that the monitors are pitched towards your ears at the right height. The quality of the foam is fantastic, with my monitors staying in place. But the best thing of all is the sound. Bass is tighter, high end is crisper. I heartily recommend these. However, one negative is that if you clean your monitors with a yellow cleaning cloth, the foam pulls bits off them and is hard to clean afterwards.

Inexpensive Instant Studio Upgrade!
Soundguy99, 06.02.2019
Bought a second set for the second pair of speakers! These are truly an inexpensive, yet an effective way to quickly improve the sound of your studio monitors. Besides helping to isolate your speakers form your desk, they also come with a set of wedges to help find a better angle of listening for more accurate focus.

Great for dealing with desk vibrations
Ciasteczka, 20.05.2019
The moment I started using these under my studio monitors, overall image of the sound got a little bit clearer. My desk stopped vibrating so much, effectively reducing the unwanted low-frequency boost it was generating.

The wedges are great if your speakers are lower/higher than your ears. The difference of having your head on correct axis with monitors (with twitters directed to your ears, not to your chest or over your head) is huge, whether you believe it or not.

?The Holy Grail? of acoustic treatment for speakers
Pavlin - (default vibration studio), 09.01.2019
Very well recognized as ?the Holy Grail? of acoustic treatment Auralex is the Brand for these kind of stuff. If you have the choice to spent a little bit more just DO it. MoPADs are not just the regular cheap foams. We purchased a pair for the main monitors in the studio and totally will purchase another pair of the MoPAD for our second monitors. The biggest advantage: they are tougher, denser and much more solid than the competition ? that?s why they can hold 2 or even 3 times? heavier speakers (up to 44kg).

Better sound, Better angle, Better Support!
Young-Bin, 19.02.2018
Better sound, Better angle, Better Support!
My small 4 inch monitors sounds so much better with these and gets rid of weird vibrations and sounds from sound travelling through the desk.
Doesn't look "cool" enough for my tastes though...but works as it should

Great for studio monitors
12.02.2017
I'm using a set of these Auralex Acoustics MoPADs underneath a pair of Yamaha HS 7 studio monitor speakers, and these products work very well together! Improved bass response and reduced vibration through to the stand. You can place the foam wedges in various configurations to achieve the best angle for the speakers. Recommended!

Nice pads
A. Lee, 17.07.2018
I've been using them since I bought my monitors so I can't tell the sound improvement. But it does it job well, I like the design of it which allows me to tilt my monitors at 2 different angles.

pads almighty
Dominic7747, 27.03.2015
these auralex acoustics pads are very good, they seperate your speakers from the surface on to which the speakers are placed, and stop any nasty vibrations and buzzez.
in the box there are 4 sets of wedges per speaker so if you have any angleing issues the wedges will sort that out.
with the wedges in place under your speakers you will be free from any buzzing from the speaker and they really do seem to help with the bass frequencies.
a must have for any studio.

Amazing resonance killer!!
16.04.2016
Helps a lot of the decoupling,I highly advise you to use stands with these pads,instead of putting them on you desk.

On Desk they help 75 percent,but thats the best you will ever find and the cheapest.


On Stand they help 98!! percent.

Excellent decouplers.
09.03.2015
Although they are a bit pricey, I am very pleased with them. My monitors sit on my desk, so decoupling is essential and these do a wonderful job. I can clearly hear a difference when using and when not using them. These are the first I have ever owned so I can't compare them to anything else. But they do what they are suppose to do. If the price is an issue one could go with something cheaper from a competitor.

Audio standart on monitor iso pads
Mike Kampitakis, 03.08.2018
I had no other iso pads before so I can't fully compare, but it does what I wanted to do, isolate the speaker from the stand, clean up lower freqs, and also it allows me to tilt a little bit my speaker downwards to eliminate direct horizontal reflections on the walls (my room hasn't audio treatment yet) and for that price, is the best you can get.

2 Pads are better than 1...
basement102, 02.05.2017
Getting a pair of heavy Active studio monitors into exactly the right position is a lot easier with two pads per speaker.
Price is a bit high.
Quality good but could still be better
Lets see how they perform over time.

perfect monitor adjustment
Giuliano B., 24.08.2015
You can use it in various positions even "firing" versus the ceiling. Each monitor is supported by two pads and thoose can be spaced accordingly to your placement requirement. Each pad is complemented by a triangualr wedge that can be used to angle the monitor in the vertical space

Auralex MoPAD
Josh G., 30.11.2014
Since setting up my studio and getting hold of my new Adam A7x monitors I noticed the bass frequencies were resonating the desk giving me a false interpretation of the sound, so these pads have solved that problem completely giving me the great sound that I was promised from the Adams.

Great isolation
Robert9504, 25.02.2015
These MoPADS are great, they decoupled my monitors from my desk at ease, i really like being able to chose how to angle the monitors using the extra foam pieces, helps when placing the monitors.

Perfect for use with your monitors! Indeed these are a must to avoid vibrations to and from other equipment. This will help you keep your sound clean. Foam can be used flat or tilted? good versatility! These will fit perfectly with Adam A7X speakers. Highly recommended!

The difference it makes
06.11.2016
It cannot be stressed enough that the environment in which you produce/listen to music is the most important factor among all the other variables.

The difference these MoPads made by lifting my monitors and making them point right at my ears is really noticeable. I can assess the bass better now and the stereo image has vastly improved.

I'm very happy about my decision for getting these and can only recommend them to anyone that is considering it too.
