Product Description

Auralex MoPAD Monitor Isolation Pads provide sonic isolation between your monitors and whatever your monitors are resting on, instantly improving the accuracy of your entire monitoring system.

No matter how good your mixer, mics, preamps, cables, and other pieces of gear that you've invested in, you're not truly hearing what your recordings sound like until you isolate your monitors from their environment - here's why.

Everything has a resonant frequency at which it vibrates like a tuning fork. Everything in your studio that vibrates contributes artifacts to your sound, so why would you let your monitors acoustically couple to a shelf, a rack, or the meter bridge of your mixing board?

Once you've bought the best gear and acoustically treated your room, what's left? Improving your monitors' accuracy. Your loudspeakers are the most critical components you use to verify the quality of your work.

This is where the Auralex MoPADs come in. MoPADs provide sonic isolation between your monitors and whatever your monitors are resting on, instantly improving the accuracy of your entire monitoring system.

MoPADs are affordable, easy to implement and really effective at decoupling your monitors from your room and all its contents.

This package includes four MoPADs, two for each monitor.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (23 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "An effective, but pricey, solution to monitor isolation"
Sound: This, for me, is the most important part of the review. The quality of the sound is why we pay money for these products. I am pleased to say that the MoPads made a big difference immediately upon placing my studio monitors upon them. The most noticeable difference came in the decoupling of the speakers from the desk upon which they had been resting. The desk was causing reinforcement of the vibrations at certain frequencies (especially bass frequencies) and just generally rattling. The MoPads stopped almost all coupling to the desk, except at the lowest frequencies (I'd say below 100 Hz by ear). The desk no longer vibrates, buzzes, or reinforces vibrations and the result is much crisper cymbals, clearer mids, and no more boomy bass. Of course, I still get boomy bass from the walls, but that's for another day... Feature: Well, the product is just four blocks of foam, but it does allow one to choose from 5 different angles for the monitors depending on the way a wedge of foam is oriented on the MoPad. Quality: I can't really tell what a well made foam would look like. It certainly seems that foam would be a good choice of material for this application. Value: I give the value only a 4, because even though the product works, I feel that $30 is a bit steep. This foam may not be much different from that used in Auralex's wall treatments, which is only $3 a square foot. If these were included with a roominators kit for an extra ten dollars on top of the regular roominators price, I'd say the value would be better. Manufacturer Support: Haven't needed it. The Wow Factor: definitely sexy, I'd made sure to have the auralex logos facing the room so everyone can see how much I paid for good sound! Overall: I am satisfied with this product, it did what the "hype" said it would. I plan to purchase further products from Auralex based on my experience with the MoPads. If you have problems with monitors vibrating their stands or a desk, these are a good, albeit expensive, solution. A block of rubber might do the trick more cheaply, I don't know...

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great for your monitors!"
Overall: I have the BIG KRK 10's (3 way monitors) these things are 55lbs each speaker! The bass is crazy loud which has tons of vibration! I have these monitors on my workstation desk of course (they don't fit on stands) and without the pads things on the desk hop around..For example, if I set a water bottle on the desk without the foam pads, that water bottle falls over, no joke. With the foam pads, the water inside the water bottle doesn't even shake! I had fun with this, almost like the termpur pedic bed things with the wine glass! Overall, these are great..A bit pricey considering you can buy a block of foam from thefoamfactory.com for only $20 and cut it yourself but hey, if you want to spend the money on these it is worth it! I suggest these to anyone with large monitors/sub woofers! It also helps with the sound, everyone knows vibration kills your audio! Get these, you won't be dissapointed! Visit my youtube channel for reviews, I will have a video on these very soon! youtube.com/bonezproductionz

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
