great components in low cost cabinets
intrancewetrust, 09.06.2019
The sound of these monitors punches well above its weight in terms of cost, Focals experience with 6.5" cones is probably unparalleled , and cheaper overseas manufacturing brings them down to low cost studio levels. The place where the cost cutting shows through is the cabinets, which produce annoying buzzing and rattles from the bass port which I would assume is some sort of resonance inside the actual box escaping through the rather generously sized reflex ports. This is something I have also observed in really cheap "studio style" monitors, however since the Focals are front ported its quite prominent.
It's probably something that can ignored once you are used to it, and the sound is really fantastic 99.5% of the time. The controls aren't exactly comprehensive but they are good enough. I have decided to hang onto them despite this slightly irritating habit which probably says a lot about the sound quality! Its good and cheap enough to earn them some brownie points for sure.
Now I know that if you are fussy, it would have been better to spend maybe 2-3x the cost to get something in the next tier of price/quality where the manufacturer has the financial allowance to iron out all the creases.

Better than Yamaha HS8...
eiresound, 12.04.2019
which I have tested before. These monitors replaced my Gibson LP8 in the studio which I found were too expensive just because of the look and name. So I sold them at a really good price and for one third I bought these Focal Alpha 65.
First choice was everybody's darling Yamaha HS8. Didn't got into the sound which was lifeless so to say.
I'm already using Focal Professional Studio Headphones so I read on the internet that these A65 should be kind of an insider's tip. Ordered a set at Thomann and yes, they are great. Very linear sound as it should be and great bass response. They deliver more than they cost.

Highly recommended!
