I know it wasn't much information, but I don't have any other monitors to compare with. I use these and a pair of Bayerdynamic DT990s for mixing / mastering.
@flavigula having heard quite a few tracks of yours made with them, makes up for the lack of detail. your mixes sound good to me. And, I think are of a broadly similar range to the sounds I make.
Thanks (regarding the mixes)!
Let me know your opinions if you end up getting them. Also of the Mackie. I have a pair of Mackie in ear monitors (I forgot to mention them) that are also amazing.
@luka @flavigula @eid i have pair of Yamaha HS5 and a JBL lsr310s sub, and i like that setup. i bought the speakers first and can attest there’s no low response on the HS5, they roll right off where the specs say they do and i had to get the sub right away to fill it in. not sure how the HS7 do in that respect but they might still need a sub(?)
other than that hard to compare as they’re the only ones I’ve owned but i now like them very much. took me a bit to get used to (continued)
lastly, a pair of oddities - they have a slight hiss when on, only really audible when nothing is playing through them. does not bother me. not sure if that is a thing with all actives or just mine. and if i set my phone atop one or too near one, it can cause a bit of crackle, so like, that’s sorta weird but again doesn’t bother me, and i keep my phone away from them.
