Good, but only lasted 3 years
One Man Band 03.08.2021
Pros:

These are indeed a pair of nice casual monitors - it wouldn't be sufficient for all your mixing/mastering needs, but it works fantastically as a pair of tracking monitors or playback speakers for your virtual instruments. They are superb for watching movies at your home studio.

Cons:

However, they only lasted 3 years for me. Strange noise started to appear from one week ago, which sounds like a piece of paper placed directly on top of the speakers that resonates and vibrates with the speakers when they are playing any sound. Then, a couple of days later, a constant high-pitched coil whine appeared, even when no sound is being played back and all the cables disconnected (except the power cable of course).

It seems very strange to me: the monitors look very sturdy, and since I keep them very close to my ears, I have never played any overly loud audio through them. I have in my studio way cheaper and less sturdy-looking gears that have already been used daily for more than 5 years (shoutout to t.bone and Behringer).

Conclusion:

Anyways, this is definitely not your buy-it-for-life kind of product. The guarantee expires after 3 years, so consider it as a 3-year subscription to an entry-level studio speaker that looks nice on your desktop. I am looking into getting a pair of more professional monitors - the Eris will serve you well until you graduate from the entry-level class.

Fantastic studio monitors
K.Kay 09.03.2020
I wanted a pair of monitors for my small home studio, and I’m very happy that I choose the eris 3.5.

These monitors provide excellent clarity during mixing due to very detailed midrange frequencies. There is some adjustment on the back for the low and high frequencies to adjust the sound based on your room space which is a feature that you can find in more expensive studio monitors.

The sound is very organic thanks to the Kevlar 3.5 inch woofers. I cannot find any flaws both in sounds or in construction as these are pretty solid. They slightly lack on low frequencies due to smaller main woofer but the bass they provide is very detailed without being muddy. This is a matter of personal preference but those who need more bass they can go with the eris 5 or buy a separate subwoofer. Personally I love how they sound l wouldn’t change anything.

Those who have a small home studio that they don’t want to invest in large and expensive monitors this is the right choice for you.

Great monitors considering the price
Jimmi G 26.08.2021
They're great for small spaces and apartments where bigger speakers might be overkill and result in noise complaints from neighbors. There's still plenty of volume for regular listening, and the bass is present without becoming overpowering or leaking through the walls. I like that they come with the same size tweeters as the bigger, more expensive Eris models, resulting in excellent resolution and stereo separation for the price. Sometimes I feel they're slightly harsh and peaky at certain upper mid-range frequencies, but considering the price and compact size, that's forgivable. Also I'm not a fan of the bright blue LED that shines in your eyes when they're powered on, I put a piece of black tape over it.
If you're mixing a lot of bass heavy music, you'll probably want a pair of decent headphones to double-check the bass/sub-bass.

Eris 3.5
Angus Old??? 24.10.2021
Great little desktop monitors.
Loud if they need to but also very usable at low volumes.
Banced sound and elaborate acoustic tuning possibility for room acoustics.
Unbeatable in this price segment
