How to choose the best studio monitors for any home recording setup?
Choosing of equipment is not an exact science. It is difficult to assess which of the studio monitors are the perfect solution for you, even comparing their characteristics. But fortunately, there are several options that have achieved an excellent reputation and are used in pro studios, being in the middle price range.
Talking about brands we can stick to the following classification:
Generally, they are quite linear but still have a good bass response. Therefore, you may consider them to be a universal option.
A happy combination of classic sounding and modern technologies. They have a very flat frequency response across the entire spectrum comparing to the monitors of similar price.
Adam, EVE, HEDD
Adam is a colored and massive sounding, while EVE and HEDD are more transparent.
Not so transparent sounding, but still good all-rounders.
They don't go too low, but they are ultra-transparent and revealing. They have a very flat response, equal or better than 2 dB across the spectrum. Very good multipurpose option.
Mackie, Monkey Banana
These speakers go more low than others, but less precise in linearity. Very good for heavy club music.
