I guess you're feeling about these monitors will depend on the type of music you're producing. I work with R&B and Hip-Hop and, while I appreciate the highs and midrange production of these monitors, the low end leaves a lot to be desired. I watched videos and read reviews of these before I purchased and I thought they would work for my set-up. Indeed, they work well at low volume (even on the low end). But, as soon as I turn the volume up at about 15-20% the highs do what they do and the lows begin to bubble and muffle at times. And, other times the low end rides the bottom of the track with very little punch and distinction, more like a hum than part of the track. I've also had some issues with clipping which I was able to somewhat mitigate but, it's still an issue that I need to be aware of. Again, it will depend on the type of music you're monitoring and, probably your expectations. For me, I got caught up in the discussions regarding their size and the output associated which is indeed remarkable. Unfortunately, these MTM's proved to me that size CAN indeed matter when it comes to low end monitoring. That said, I'm going to keep them because, as I stated before, at lower levels these monitors are pretty good. Keep in mind, I have the iLoud Micro Monitors and, at low levels, they are pretty good too!
