Little size, big sound
As nearfield home studio monitors, these are nothing short of awesome. They're relatively flat across the freq response curve, which is great for hearing all the subtleties in your melodies that might otherwise be drowned out by boomier freqs. But down discount the bass in these either, they slam like the big boys and really let you hear the dirty lows you're kicking out. Built-in isolation pads are another big +, no need to worry about your speaker bouncing across your desk and muddling up everything. If you're considering them, BUY THEM.
decent tracking monitor
the krk rokit 5s do live up to their reputation of being bass monsters (as of 12/30/15)
they're definitely fun to track and produce on but they are not something i could ever accurately or comfortably mix on, always felt like i was striving to hear frequencies that bothered my ear.
KRK has redesigned its wildly popular Rokit series of studio monitors, providing a broader frequency response, a new cabinet design, an adjustment in power for better balance, and several other enhancements. It features a front-firing port that provides low frequency extension without boundary coupling, an improved speaker voicing for even more accurate frequency response, a 1" silk dome tweeter, and an Aramid 5" glass composite woofer. They are lightweight, low profile and are offered at a price that makes professional-level monitoring affordable for even the most humble studios.
Other monitors have ports on the back of the cabinet. These rear-firing ports tend to create bass coupling with walls and corners amplifying low frequency information which will color your mix. The KRK Generation 3 Rokit studio monitor's design includes front-firing ports, which are just the right shape and taper to reduce port turbulence. You'll appreciate the clean and accurate bass performance this approach delivers, even at high SPL's.
A great-sounding monitor doesn't stop with a great cabinet and custom drivers. KRKs true bi-amplified amplifier system provides discrete low-distortion power for each driver. While the active crossover systems provide smooth and accurate frequency response, and again, accurate diffraction control.
