Product Review : Which Monitor Is The Best?

 

Mackie CR3
Built with high-quality components and thoughtful design, the Mackie CR3 series reference monitors pack heavyweight punch in a small form factor. Pumping out 50W of clean stereo sound from two 3" woofers and two ferrofluid-cooled 0.75" silk tweeters, these babies have a broad frequency response range of 80Hz–20KHz; serving plenty of volume and smooth clear sound dispersion at every listening level. Ideal for beginners just starting up a home studio or trying their first hand at production.
 

PreSonus Eris E 4.5
The PreSonus Eris E4.5 2-way active studio monitors give you a high-quality, high-value alternative to "computer" speakers.  Offering controls for flattening frequency response to facilitate accurate mixing, the Eris monitors deliver a smooth and accurate frequency response so they reveal what’s really in your tracks and mixes. Bundled together with a suite of acoustic tuning controls to let you adjust their response for the acoustics of your room, the PreSonus Eris E4.5 are monitors for all seasons, perfect for the producer branching out to the next step, looking for something a little bit more serious.

JBL 305P Mkll
The JBL 305P MkII probably is the truest near field monitor speakers out there today. Its innovative Image Control Waveguide works in concert with refined transducers to deliver a well-defined and incredibly dimensional stereo image. The 305P Mkll also has a broad sweet spot, which means there's less variation in what you hear when you're not in the perfect position. Great for mixing music in your DAW software, editing video, or any other task that requires monitoring accuracy, the JBL 305P Mkll is ideal for the intermediate producer looking for precision and accuracy.

Yamaha HS7
The Yamaha HS7 has an ancestry that descends directly from the legendary NS10, so it definitely is no pushover. The current cream of the crop when it comes to monitor speakers, the HS7’s scientific arrangement of screws and a specially designed mounting ring eliminates unwanted vibration and resonance, letting the speaker realize its full sonic potential without distortion or coloration. Already enhanced by this sophisticated mounting system, the Yamaha HS7 also boasts room-control and high-trim response controls that let you tailor your monitors to your environment for optimal response may it be in a control room on in the field, ideal for the professional producer working on the go.
