Phenominal Speakers - Best I've owned so far
I thought BOSE sounded fine and never really tried anything else (figured that I wasn't missing out all that much) and any speaker considered 'good' would cost $2000+ and required a larger cabinet to fill a room. I always wanted to try a set of studio monitors for listening to music and decided that...

Enjoying my new setup - thanks to some helpful users on r/audiophile for recommendations! Music has never sounded better!
The first time I listened to an album (Opeth's "Sorceress") was like hearing things for the first time, as I was making out so many more details in the songs, and the sound was just so much more powerful and dynamic. Not shown is the other JBL 305p MkII, serving as my left channel, and the SVS PB-1000, under the desk (which, wow, sits at volume knob of 2 for now, given my apartment living).
The hype is justified but make sure to use a truly balanced preamp
Jumped on the MKIIs Thanksgiving sale ($90 each) for desktop use with my PC as source. I was skeptical of the incessant hype for the SLR305 predecessors, chiefly cause none of the youtube AB sound demos (for what they're worth) wowed me at all, and I read issues of hissing and Class D treble nasties...

Best Studio Monitors for the $
I should preface by saying these are my first pair of studio monitors for my own personal use, but I have used the LSR305's in a different environment before. That being said, I chose these over the competing monitors in this price range (Rokit, Yamaha, Mackie) because of their incredible low end re...

JBL 305P Mk2 review - Higher Hz
Besides that minor issue, we felt that the speaker was well designed. I/O and controls 5.0 On the back of the JBL 305P Mk2, you’ll find balanced XLR and TRS inputs, a volume control knob, as well as several tuning options to cater to your room and placement correction needs

Beyerdynamic DT1990 for fun, all-around listening?
I have no problem with the treble but can understand people who do. But i consider this an EQalizeable issue. For music production i would actually save the money for monitors such as the "JBL Professional 305P MkII" there nothing better in this price range.

A Perfect Two-Way Speaker
At normal listening levels -- below pain/OSHA hearing damage threshold -- this speaker is fantastic. On-axis performance measured from six feet away in a room with a hard floor followed a Harman target small room curve. Individual near field measurements of the tweeter and woofer were flat along the...

Review: JBL 305P MKII - AudioGearz
Its price to value ratio is simply impeccable and difficult to compete with. If this is potentially your first pair of speakers, you will make a great investment that will serve you well for years to come. If you’re at the very beginning of your path as a music producer, the JBL 305P MKII speakers will give you a lot of insight on mixing your tracks, due to its stereo imaging properties
