Greatest value / price
Daniel_G, 25.02.2019
I bought 2 of these without any tryout, only based on Youtube comparisons with a studio headphone (included in the Focusrite studio set).

I am very satisfied with the sound and the stereo imaging of the speakers, actually I love just to hear music on them, not just for studio work.

Many of reviews were about lack of bass, but even for just listening to music (pop, rock, metal, southern rock, modern metal etc, blues, jazz), there is enough bass I can confirm that.

For my taste these speakers are very natural sounding, round and the notes are very understandable. Hearing them from 0.5-1m, the result is perfect.

I have currently no time to make music on them, but I can imagine full mixing and mastering processing on these ones. Of course for super-lows mix I would prefer a good studio headphone, and at the finalisation hearing your music on different speakers and headphones is always a great practice.

I recommend these ones, they are loud and great!

So cheap and so good!
MarkZhero, 26.08.2019
As a music producer I can confirm that this is a great alternative regarding near field monitors: Precision, smooth bass and general accurate frequencies. They are ideal for small rooms and able to deliver everything that an experienced producer needs to produce professional audio. Deserve 5 stars.

My first but they'll stay.
Jarolukas, 23.05.2020
Always used to mix and 'produce' on what I could find. Since BX5D3 came to my world it's like a day and night, meaning we have day now and it's sunny and warm. Best spent money this year so far, I am well satisfied.
