    Comments about KRK ROKIT 5 G3 Powered Studio Monitor, Silver Black Limited Edition:

    I purchased a set of the special edition KRK 5s about two weeks ago, and I absolutely love them. I played various genres to "break them in". They sound incredible, and for their size, extend well into lower frequencies. The mid and high registers are outstanding. The LF, HF, and volume knobs are sturdy and precise as well. It's important to adjust them to accommodate room acoustics. I produce music using Logic and Ableton, and have had no issues with fatigue. Make no mistake about it, if you produce bass heavy tracks, you will want a sub to fill in the lows. The best advice I can give is to listen to different brands for yourself and then decide. Everyone is different, and so are their respective tastes in speaker preference. Listening is subjective, and for me, these are a win. The reviewer who had various sound issues must not have the same monitors I have because mine in no way sound remotely like what he/she described. I use a focusrite interface with the KRKs and the sound is clear, clean, and precise...plus the silver cabinet and black woofer color scheme match my iMac. I definitely appreciate their overall freshness.

        Comments about KRK ROKIT 5 G3 Powered Studio Monitor, Silver Black Limited Edition:

        They are just literally trash boxes. I have never heard a worse speaker. I'm not even an audiophile. I'm just a dude who makes music and likes to listen to tunes. I can't even.

        My ears have started to hurt so bad since I have had them. I have the db all the way down and windows volume is at like 4 and still it's unbearable.

        I will be fixing this mistake of going with this monitor. However I should note that I'm in an untreated room and have let the speakers "break in" with a few dozen hours on them. Still sound terrible. Made my mixes fuller than when using headphones but also much muddier. Still after eq'ing that problem I just don't like the sound they produce. Headphones, car stereo and Iphone the mixes all sound better than out of these things.

        Comments about KRK ROKIT 5 G3 Powered Studio Monitor, Silver Black Limited Edition:

        These sound great for my little home studio set up and they were reasonably priced. I had a tip from my last producer to look at JBL because there was something he said was comparable in his opinion but he had a pair of these for his small speaks in his studio. I was pleased to see them on sale for the same price as the JBL's

        On my computer workstation #3 these sound great! They are my 4th set of 5s and the best yet. The cabinets are big for a 5 inch speaker and that might be why they hold the bass so well.

          Comments about KRK ROKIT 5 G3 Powered Studio Monitor, Silver Black Limited Edition:

          I use these speakers in a small studio setting to practice mixing and recording. I also do sampling and editing for video stop motion animation. They are awesome for EDM and Dance music as they are more bass heavy. I've played classical music as well as all types music across the board and they sound fantastic!

            Bought these to connect with a audio technica record player I got for my girlfriend unfortunately we cannot figure out/find the necessary cords to connect the record player>both speakers direct. Will probably be returning them to look for something with a little less struggle.
