I see no reason why these shouldn't be used for pure joy of listening
paparapa, 05.12.2019
Full disclosure, this was my first experience with a decent pair of speakers I have ever had. Previously I was using aux input of a cheap 13-year old LG DVD player with 2 tiny speakers and a 'subwoofer' that wouldn't go below 65Hz. I do own HD598, which I don't like, but I could wear them forever and M50X, which I adore. Also, SE215 SPE for on the go, so It's not like I jumped at BM5's straight out of the cave, but when it comes to speakers, you may say so.

I was looking for a pair of speakers for listening (I'd rather avoid Hi-Fi wording and on top of that, I'm not being sold on audiophool stuff thankfully), so the natural choice for me was a decent pair of active ones. I chose Thomann for its huge reputation and their added value services. In fact, I didn't even consider these for a long time, thinking their naming came from 5" woofer size, and I was sold on A7X until recently when I figured out that these have a bigger woofer than A7X, and extend lower (unfortunately, ADAM specifies lower limit at -15db!!!).

Sound: Natural, full sounding and non-fatiguing throughout the audible spectrum (with ISO-155). You might need a sub for hedonistic intents only.
I listen to Hardstyle & Hardcore and there's a lot of fundamentals between 30-60Hz, so I do get the impulse sometimes for that extra sub-bass grind that subwoofer provides. Otherwise, you should be fine, just find a decent position in the room. I'm still getting amazed every time I use them. So much clarity. Imaging together with depth is still surprising me. Like the sound is reaching towards me and shifting all around. Then again, I have no point of reference.

Quality: Dynaudio!

Features: Sufficient, just added 2db at the low end for the current positioning (suboptimal in every way). Mids, highs flat. In love with the auto-standby feature.

Very nice and detailed sound, good stereo, flat linear sound. Quiet without signal, no noise. Strange xlr female connector, but it works normally. Im satisfied. Really recommend!

Best monitors in this price range.
MichaelGlotov, 14.10.2017
I write electronic music and before I stumbled upon these monitors I thought of buying Adams AX or maybe Yamaha HS (as I wanted to save some money).

I want to say that these monitors are incredible for this price. The bass is tight and doesn't rumble too much even in my not so well acoustic treated room. The whole mix translates really well, mids and highs are clear enough, even though the last one seemed to be a little bit dull, so I boosted hi freq on the rare panel. Also, need to notice that monitors are compact and don't take too much place.

Please be aware that these monitors are no longer shipped with ISO acoustics stands, unfortunately.
