Decent versatile monitors for starting out
Padraig D., 23.07.2014
These were my first monitors and I used them for playing studio recordings and practically everything else on my PC too. I even used them once on stage, inside an 'empty' upright piano, with a CD player while pretending to play piano. And it sounded very convincing. This probably also demonstrates the sound level of these speakers. If you have a small studio space, these will be more than loud enough. Ok, so real studio monitors probably shouldn't have treble, bass controls on them. However, if your use is more casual hobby than critical application, then these's should suffice. The tone controls means you can use them for playing movies, music etc. as well. And these will last you a long time. I had them 2 years without a problem. I then upgraded to different speakers.

Really Impressed
07.09.2015
I wanted basic active monitors for my little bedroom studio, but didn't have a high budget. These guys were actually the cheapest I could find! So I wasn't particularly expecting much.

Thats why I was so shocked by how good the sound quality and volume actually is. The bass and treble EQ's work very well, and the volume the speakers allow really surprised me.

They are quite handy to connect to a mixing desk, and a mic/guitar can easily go through them! Very happy.

Was expecting a bit more
Bob Katsionis, 08.02.2021
I use them as monitors on my desktop iMac.
I tend to check my studio mixes when coming home and also listen to some music while working. For some reason, I was expecting a bit more soundwise from them.
Pros:
-Connectivity
-Price

Cons:
-They are a bit muddy on the lows. Not much "kick" from them and if you raise the bass, they only got muddier. However, the "treble" has to be on 10 so it's pointless to use it anyway.
