Very impressed - First studio monitors
Lehel, 05.05.2020
I use these studio monitors for multimedia and some casual music production. I am willing to buy a synthesizer so it will be at a good use.

Pros: Clear sound, crisp highs, good mids and great bass (I wouldn't have thought that it will have such detail in sound - it is a new level for me, since these are my first studio monitors, no wonder I am impressed by them :)
Very powerful speakers, I am using them on approx 10% volume with an M-Audio Air 192
4 (every knob set to middle on each speaker).
Love the front power indicators, they have a nice blue color but not that distracting at night.

Cons: A little bit tall speakers. Other than this nothing to complain about.

Each speaker comes with a power cable and 4 little pads on which it stands.
Probably the power consumption is higher compared to other speakers with Class-D amps, because these come with a Class-A/B amplifier, but this does not bother me.
Using the TRS connectors with balanced cables, all good.
I do not recommend the use of RCA connectors, because they are unbalanced and anything can interfere with the signal, which results in a heavy white-noise.

Almost parfait
Gregman, 20.10.2020
Très bon son pour ces enceintes, moins criardes que des Yamaha HS8 ou des Adam T8V et avec un bas du spectre présent et bien défini.

On ne regrette que la qualité de fabrication (tout en plastoc) et ce bruit de buzz présent dès l'allumage même sans cable audio de connecté, que plusieurs utilisateurs ont pu constater. Ce buzz est nettement moins fort que sur les Eris E7 XT mais présent tout de même. Personnellement j'ai préféré choisir ce buzz auquel on s'habitue et qu'on finit par oublier, plutôt que de sacrifier la qualité de l'excellent son de ces enceintes pour en choisir un modèle concurrent.

Aucun regret.

Sehr gute Sound-und Produkt Qualität für diesen Preis
medusasound, 22.01.2021
Mein Anwendungsbereich für die Monitore ist die Musikproduktion sowie Mixing und Mastering. Es sind meine ersten richtigen Monitore und ich war von Anfang an sehr beeindruckt. Ich konnte bereits bei Thomann selbst viele andere Monitore vergleichen, jedoch sind mir diese besonders aufgefallen, da sie einen wirklich klaren, neutralen sound abliefern.

Die Regler auf der Rückseite sind ebenfalls sehr hilfreich (z.B. steht mein Schreibtisch nah an der linken Wand des Zimmer, wodurch die Linke Seite mehr Bass liefert - durch die Regler kann man das jedoch wieder ausgleichen. Insgesamt ist die 8 Zoll Version meiner Meinung nach Perfekt für ein "normal großes" Zimmer geeignet.

Die Verarbeitung wirkt auch hochwertig - Nichts wackelt, keine Kratzer / Flecken. Die Knobs auf der Rückseite sind ebenfalls angenehm zu bedienen (Nicht zu einfach zu drehen). Die Power Leuchte auf der Vorderseite ist auch ein kleines aber sehr nützliches Feature, damit man immer bescheid weiß ob man die Monitore auch ausgeschaltet hat.

Insgesamt kann ich diese Monitore sehr empfehlen, besonders in meinem Anwendungsbereich (Rap Produktion / Mixing) erzeugen sie einen sehr neutralen Klang.

Mains hum when idle but sounds fantastic
SonicPeasant, 14.09.2019
I use these as monitors in a small studio for recording, mixing and mastering. I previously used a pair of Alesis M1 Active mk 2 for 20+ years. After calibrating the SPL with pink noise (Eris E8 XT were around 12 dB louder than the Alesis at their unity gain notches) they still made a huge difference in definition. With the Eris I could hear everything with much greater clarity. Bass, electric guitars, vocals as well as cymbals and hi-hats at the very top. My impression is that everything separates itself from the "mush" so you can make much more educated mix decisions. Stereo imaging is way better. I really love the way they sound and they were a significant improvement of my setup.
The only downside is the quiet, but clearly audible, mains hum when not playing anything. This hum was also present in a pair of the predecessors (Eris E8) I've tried before, so it seems like a design issue. I find the hum rather annoying since I was used to the completely hum-less Alesis monitors. But since the sound quality when actually playing music through them is so amazing I decided keep them anyway.
