As a owner of the previous LSR305, I bought this second pair blindly.

Sound wise, they are as great as ever and maybe even better. Zero complain here.

There is still the same hiss. Quite annoying, can be reduced by lowering the volume to get the best compromise noise/signal.
An auto standby mode shuts the amp completely after some time so no more hiss when unused. That's better than nothing, but I would have preferred a reduced hiss.

However the real pain with the LSR305P is a new permanent coil whine.
It doesn't come from tweeter nor the woofer. It comes from the back, the power supply to my guess.
It's pretty high pitch and faint so I tried to just ignore it but after three days there is still a few moments of the day when I find this ringing way too annoying. Even at 2 meters away.
Unplugging every electronic device in the room did nothing. The only way to remove that ringing is to power off the speakers.

Great for the price
epasym, 05.01.2021
As an inexperienced user of such monitors, pretty much my only complaint is the glossy finish on the front that collects too much dust.
It sounds great and is very feature rich for how cheap it is.
However, if you don't have a lot of space you should know that they are much bigger than you'd expect if you have never bought monitors before, and I'm assuming a lot of potential buyers have not.

I use my pair for listening to and mixing music primarily. I have them connected to a scarlett 2i2. At first they sounded extremely bassy, but after a quick look through the manual, I realised all I had to do to fix that was flip a switch on the back, so do read the manual if you don't know what you're doing.
They're very easy to set up, but you will need to have the equipment to connect them to your device, so look up what connections you need and get the proper cables, or you might end up with a big bulky paperweight.
For first time buyers, do keep in mind that you need to buy them individually, meaning if you order one from here, you only get one speaker.

Finally, one thing that annoys me slightly from time to time is the low hum they make when on max volume. I always have them on max volume and control it through my interface, but you can probably just use them differently and not have that problem.

Excellent value for money
audiouser, 03.01.2020
Excellent value for money, with a strong sound stage and a good amount of bass - not completely flat so perfect for casual listening - music, movies, etc. They also work well in larger rooms as a portable audio system as they're not too heavy so you can carry them around on your shoulder in the Gator G-STUDIOMON1 bag also available here if you don't want to buy a full PA system.

They do have a noticable hiss which is fine in my use case but you will be able to hear it in a smaller room when nothing is playing. If that bothers you seek a different product. The hiss is constant at all volumes. Also worth noting don't try turning these up to 10 and play films through without normalization, if you hit something that peaks the audio output like an explosion the speakers briefly cut off and the driver restarts. 6-7 is the sweet spot for me, but will depend on your audio source.

Build quality is okay but don't expect anything premium, things aren't glued flush for example. These speakers are much more about the sound for the price than overall build quality.

Works well with the JBL LSR310S subwoofer if you want extended bass response (or added earthquakes) in your setup.

A bit disappointed from the sound
Konstantinos V, 05.02.2021
I usually play the piano using headphones and was very satisfied with the sound quality but I didn't like the feeling after a few minutes of playing (pressure on my head-ears) so I decided to go for studio monitors.
Once in a store I listened to M-Audio BX5, just some tracks from youtube and I was impressed. After some research and good reviews I thought that JBL would be a little step up. Many say that Jbls are the cheap alternatives of Yamahas HS5.
Listening to even the same tracks, playing the piano and comparing to my headphones I am very disappointed. Tried the configuration highs and lows but still is a no from me. My audio interface that I use is Scarlett 2i2.
My conclusion is that You should try yourself first and then buy.
