You need the if...

By Studio 139

from Kalamazoo, MI

Comments about Auralex MoPad Monitor Isolation Pads:

If you have a mixing desk with monitors on a shelf, or on monitor stands these will help isolate the monitors from the desk or floor. It may not be a night and day change, but anything that makes your monitors more accurate is worth the price. It tightens up the sound for a small investment.

A must for recording artists.

By Rokib

from New York

Comments about Auralex MoPad Monitor Isolation Pads:

We have been recording for our band. As we added the Mopads to our Monitors we experienced a huge difference in sound. The sound quality and clarity increased. My annoying neighbor stopped complaining about we are being too loud. I was so impressed with this that I actually went and bought 1 more set for my Home Theater System and my systems are sounding sweeter than ever. For sound isolation for Monitors Mopads are the best.

WOW!! HUGE Difference!! Worth the $40!!

By Tadric "TracksAllDay" Robinson

from Centreville, VA/Saginaw, MI

Comments about Auralex MoPad Monitor Isolation Pads:

I really didn't think they would be so great, but wow, I'm surprised. These little pads make a great difference. I even had to turn down the volume a little because my monitors are more accurate and I can hear more clearly. Don't second guess yourself, BUY these. I own a pair of M-Audio BX5a by the way. Makes them sound a lot better.

Can't believe the difference

By Paul

from Rochester, NY

Comments about Auralex MoPad Monitor Isolation Pads:

I purchased 2 sets of the Auralex MoPad Monitor Isolation Pads for my quad setup at home, and 4 more sets for an eight-channel cube for the studio. Besides being able to hold heavy monitors, they can be tilted 3 ways (great for the eight-speaker cube since there are quad fields above and below the sweet spot). They REALLY tighten up the bass frequencies of my monitors! Well worth the money!

A little goes a long way...

By Misconduct2K

from San Diego, CA

Comments about Auralex MoPad Monitor Isolation Pads:

When I placed my monitors on these pads, I could tell the difference. The bass was tighter, and the mids were more clear. Now, I know that these don't make a huge difference, but in the world of mixing a little goes a long way. By isolating your monitors from the surface they rest on, you will get a more true sound and be able to make adjustments more accurately. Definitely worth the money!

What a difference!

By Steve

from NYC

Comments about Auralex MoPad Monitor Isolation Pads:

I live in a 'cave,' an apartment that was carved out of a piece of concrete. Needless to say it's acoustically "live." When I had my Bose 301's on the floor the sound was horrible. Put them on the MoPads, and wow! A cleaner sound with lower volume! I can only imagine what they'd do for performers who have to put their amps and monitors on whatever surface is available.

These Pads are essential to have for your Monitors

By Dave

Comments about Auralex MoPad Monitor Isolation Pads:

The salesman suggested these and Wow I'm glad I bought these. The pads angle my KRK Rokit 6 powered monitors perfectly and provide the needed isolation to the surface the monitors sit on. Perfect!!

    I have several Auralex monitor isolations pads in my studio, which I use on both active and passive monitors. You can't go wrong. The price is right and the purpose is precise. Highly recommended.

    Great monitor isolation pads

    By SRR

    from Sun Prairie, WI

    Comments about Auralex MoPad Monitor Isolation Pads:

    Ok lets be honest, they are not going to make you the worlds best engineer, cause that is me :-) JK. But they do help reduce the vibrations that transfer from speaker cabint to whatever it is sitting on. This helps the bass and midrange clear up ever so slightly, allowing for a better mix. And their ease of setting up or down angles or straight ahead is a very nice added bonus. I highly recomend these.

    Perfect for Subwoofers on the ground!

    By Cesar Lima

    from Framingham, MA

    Comments about Auralex MoPad Monitor Isolation Pads:

    I own a pair of M-Audio BX8a & the M-Audio SBX 10 subwoofer. Well long story short, my subwoofer was really vibrating against my wooden floor so I was using old heavy books to hold it down because my only other solution was physically holding the subwoofer down lol so I did my research and found these bad boys (pads) and bought em. My concern was more for my subwoofer but I figured hey minus well buy two sets of isolation pads. Did this a few weeks ago, the first pair for the monitors and the second to lay my subwoofer on. Really loved the extra pieces cut out that they come with the pads so you can choose how to best angle your monitors and subwoofer. And so, they solved my problem! Subwoofer really does play appropriately and like the info on the pads say they really do make your monitors sound like "they are playing while floating in the air!" These really did what they were meant to do. very well worth it, for a cleaner more accurate mix. Just make sure you get used to the monitors being angled slightly different. Very worth it, and remember buy two sets if you have a subwoofer laying on a solid floor! Btw the look on these bad boys make your monitors look a lot more pro!

    More accurate reading of the bass especially because I'm working on an old metal and wood desk that reverberates a lot when you tap on it.

    These are affordably priced which is what attracted me to them in the first place. I don't understand why made them 4 inches in width. You have to place two together for the width you need. Other than that I like them.

    Comments about Auralex MoPad Monitor Isolation Pads:

    I have a pair of beringer TRUTH monitors. These monsters weigh about 33 pounds each. Lesser foam would crush under the weight of these massive things. But these pads are fantastic. They are strong and thick and I had immediate results in bass decoupling after installation. Very satisfied!

    Comments about Auralex MoPad Monitor Isolation Pads:

    I built a simple (updated) 'recording 'desk' and had my Rokit 5s sitting directly on the shelf (the Rokits have an isolation pad on the bottom of the cabinet but I was not convinced that it was very effective). I knew that I was hearing more bass resonance than I should be and felt that the speakers were a little nondescript in their sound (muddy in the mids and weak in the highs). I considered that it might be the room acoustics (as I had just re-oriented everything in the room) or my aging speakers. Aware that the cabinets were sitting in a new environment I also wondered if isolating the cabinets from direct contact with the desk would make a difference. After reading reviews for these and the more and less expensive alternatives I ordered these pads hoping that I would notice the difference. I have to say that I am now hearing a balanced, full range (within the capability of these monitors) of sonic delivery - that I had not heard before using these pads! I am not a 'heavy' listener of loud, complex types of music so I don't know if my needs are as specific as others. The primary function of my equipment is to produce clean, balanced guitar and voice recordings. I do use the monitors in my general listening/watching of non-critical subject matter (movies, youtube vids, etc.) and I have to say that I have noticed a very pleasing difference - much more 'natural' sound in every scenario. I almost purchased the newer version of these monitors because I thought that these Gen 2s were 'losing' their sound. But, now, I no longer have an excuse to buy the Gen 3s! LOL! I still may do that 'just because' (geared syndrome) and if the newer monitors ARE better, these pads will allow those characteristics to be heard and appreciated. The bottom line is that, for me, these pads make a noticeable difference and I will not use monitors without them in the future.
