Hercules Monitor 5 review
Alan Roberts, 08.04.2021
Before buying these monitor speakers I was using some cheap Sony desktop speakers for making dance music.

The difference in the sound since recieving these has been excellent, I'm hearing parts of my songs that weren't there before.

The only reason I haven't given 5 stars in all areas here is because I'm getting a hissing sound from the speakers due to audio interference. I believe this is because this cable to hook it to my desktop with a 3.5mm connection.

the sssnake YPK2030

I'm waitingn on new cables to arrive and hopefully then all will be good. You need balanced cables for these monitors the cable I bought is unbalanced, it would be handy to explain this in the add for the monitors.

The build is lovely, they are a good weight and feel like they'll last for a long time.

Also if buying from Ireland or UK, maybe mention that you'd like UK plugs as mine came with European plugs.

Overall I'm happy with speakers and would recommend them for the price, my friend has the KRK Rokits and they're very similiar.

Gute Monitore
zill950, 09.03.2021
Der Sound ist klar und präzise. Ich vermisse nichts an Klangqualität oder Frequenz, der Bass ist auch mächtig genug.
Die Verarbeitung ist einwandfrei und daß der On/Off Schalter hier an der Front plaziert ist, ist ein klares Plus.

Wow, quel son !
FanOfClash, 06.02.2020
Utilisation
Cette paire d'enceintes a révolutionné mon home studio. Comparé à mes précédentes enceintes, c'est le jour et la nuit : j'entends désormais le son avec la même précision qu'avec mon casque, même à faible volume : le rendu sonore est irréprochable.

Quand je les ai reçues, elles n'étaient pas rodées, donc à la première utilisation, elles sonnaient dures, froides, moches, mais après les avoir laissé tourner 24 heures d'affilée à faible volume, puis 2 heures à volume modéré, elles sont devenues si fidèles que je n'ai pas entendu ailleurs un rendu aussi clair et neutre.

Avantages
- Super son : elles restituent la totalité du spectre audible, n'atténuent ou ne grossissent pas de fréquences, c'est parfait pour du home studio, et un son vraiment clair est vraiment reposant,
- Connexion pratique : XLR + jack 6.35 et RCA,
- Réglage simple : 1 volume et 1 On/Off a l'avant c'est bien mieux que les délires de réglages avec LCD qu'un fabricant a intégré sur un modèle similaire,
- Event à l'avant : elles sonnent clair même près d'un mur alors si l'évent est à l'arrière il faut tenir les enceintes éloignées du mur pour éviter les résonances,
- prix : elles sont à un prix très bas pour leur qualité sonore.



Inconvénients :
- je ne vois pas l'utilité des 3 réglages à l'arrière (Bass: +2dB / 0 dB / -2dB) (High : +2dB / 0 dB / -2dB) (Low cutoff : 56 Hz / 80 Hz / 100 Hz), les basses et les aigus sonnent mieux à +2dB, et si on n'a pas de caisson, cas courant en Home Studio, on coupe les basses le plus bas possible, à 56 Hz.
- une cavité pour les soulever aurait été pratique, parce que je les transporte de temps en temps.

A l'arrivée, c'est de la bombe et je suis super content de mon acquisition.

Professionelle Musikboxen 2Paar
Sven5332, 22.03.2021
Die Lautsprecher von Hercules sind High End. Man könnte das Mischpult mit einem XLR Kabel (Links/Rechts) + Klinke Kabel (Links/Rechts) gleichzeitig verkabeln sodass am Lautsprecher XLR und Klinkenanschluss belegt sind. Man hört jede Feinheit der Musik heraus über die Musikboxen - natürlich nicht vom Internet, ich rede von Bundesliga von einer CD. Die Boxen haben eine sehr lange Lebensdauer. Nicht vom Internet streamen! Kauft euch CD´s!!!
