The best speakers I've worked with!
Mokushi, 08.02.2019
I have been a sound designer and music composer for more than a decade and it took me a while until I could afford the Genelec class speakers. I've worked with headphones and Yamaha HS series for quite a while though, but the 8040 BPM series are a game-changer.

The sound is very clear, I could even hear noises of compression, something that I could barely detect on my old speakers and even headphones.

The bass is so clear, I barely have to equalize or touch it afterwards.

The options on the back that allow for bass and treble tilts are also very useful and can help in finding the perfect balance for your room.

The price is pretty high, but so is the quality. All in all, I am really happy with this purchase,

There Genelecs of course their good
Gumpert, 26.04.2020
Built quality is superb your really buying into a serious brand with the 8000 series genelecs I used to own the 8030’s and mixes were instantly better you could hear in great detail if things were over compressed or sticking out in the mix which I couldn’t hear on cheaper monitors the 8040 sounds identical but has more power and deeper bass, if your not used to the lower frequencies you need to get your ear in by listening to music similar to what you will produce, there not hyped, and highs are smoother to the ear more than Adams for example some would say a little hifi but there is no doubt they are clear I love these !

Very good quality monitors
If you are mixing these will help a lot as you can hear all the details in the mix. They are smaller than Krk Vxt8 for example ,which i also own,but they have more bass and also sound better.By sound better i mean the genelecs are more flat and they dont color the sound.. "they reveal more details" its the right words for this monitors
Pros: Good price ,quality,good looking monitors, flat , nice round bass .the best at this price range probably
Cons: I personally found that i canot mix on this monitors for long period of time as they are making my ears fatique if i mix more than 40-60 minutes on them.

Perfect sound
Valtteri B, 23.12.2018
I bought these Genelec 8040s for my studio and it was the best choice i've made.

Pros.
The sound is great, very good frequency response, good 3D and stereo image when mixing. Its built very strong and sturdy. Great Finnish quality!

Cons.
Only con is that the power switch is in the back.

Get it and you won't regret it!
