I'm familiar with the IK Multimedia brand, as I use plenty of their products in my home studio. Initially, I didn't even know that IK manufactured monitors. I checked out some YouTube videos and read plenty of reviews, but the selling point to me was the size of the monitors, and how highly some Award winning engineers spoke of them. I decided to give them a go. I am honestly floored by the low end on these speakers. They don't look like they pack much of a punch, but trust me they do. It's perfect for my specific style of mixing/mastering (Hip-Hop/R&B). It's also easy to transport due to the compact size. They're so loud, I usually don't crank them to 100. I've even hooked them up to my TV and played video games. They're very versatile. They can double as home speakers due to the Bluetooth functionality. I would recommend this to anybody who needs a efficient sound at a decent price. Definitely will buy again.
