As stated, these are "reference" monitors. You will find no enjoyment listening to your favorite hip-hop artist through these. But as reference monitors (flat, being able to compare it's sound across the board to something else) and for the price (99 each now) you can't beat the deal. I love, love, love peeking into some college kid's little home studio and seeing a pair of Rokits perfectly positionied for listening pleasure. I hate to tell you this but if you use a "name brand" to perform a job, your next mix is going to sound like mud in your first fan's car stereo.
These monitors sounds so much better than their size. Didn't imagine it can produce such amazing sound.. Are good looking and great built. Highly recommend to anyone!
