Bought as a second pair/reference and I *really* like them. They surprised the hell out of me. A hell of a lot of monitor, for little monetary output. Nice smooth FR, tight/controlled bass, and a fantastic sweet spot. I like them so much in fact that I am getting another pair for the record studio(I have a proper mix room but have been renting time for tracking..not so anymore, we have our own space, getting it set up) Bowled over. Highly recommended.
