Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bass response and amazing stereo field I bought to produce my songs and I know I have a pair of the best monitors I could buy in its price range and even more expensive ones would not be as suitable for my needs (EDM/Urban). And yes, there is a hiss that is just normal for professional monitors and they are inaudible as soon as any audio signal comes from them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great price The price was good on sale as much as the 305's. I like that the volume knob has the bumpy stages that way a pair can be accurately synchronized to the same volume. The highs and lows frequency adjustment switches are also a life saver since my room is not sound treated. They sound great honestly, they really shine when playing music but as a multimedia speaker for live tv they arent as good. I used them for my tv and everything sounds better but in movies dialogue is always much louder than any of the mids in the background. There are a few issues but not gamebreaking. 1. there is a hiss or fuzz thats audible when you get up close to them, this doesnt bother me b/c i sit far away (5-7ft). 2. There is no mesh screen for protection and that means you have to make your own. 3. The rear port looks really underdeveloped, what i mean is that the port is basically just a hole. When i shined a flashlight i could see everything on the inside. The tweeter is super exposed so if you have kids make sure they never get back there. Also the tweeter is not isolated from the bass in there so there could be distortions caused by strong bass. The tweeter also looks really simple from back there like it didnt cost much to make and install. Anyway im still very satisfied and love the jbl quality of being confident in turning up the volume without fearing of cracks n popples. I would recommend for their next iteration to add a second tweeter or a mid range tweeter. Make it a 3-way speaker to blow up all the mids to be as strong as the highs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Precise and dependable! It is said that “You are as good as the tools you work with” and I couldn’t be happier with these monitors. As a passion, I do remix work in my home studio and for the first time I am able to listen to my projects and hear amazing sounds I didn’t hear before. My work has improved so much more because of all the details these monitors provide.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for the money!! I bought these a few weeks ago, and these have to be the best bang for the buck. The sound even across frequencies, bottom end is tight for a small near field, quiet operation, and light! I’m very satisfied, and would absolutely recommend!

Product Q&A

I was wondering if a pair of these would be good to plug an iPod in direct for music&nbsp;

Asked by: Bo2484
Yes I use an 1/8 inch stereo headphone jack split into 2 male XLR's and play music through the JBL's from my computer or directly from my phone and they sound incredible. No interface needed. The JBL's will take either XLR male or 1/4&quot; male inputs. Both sound great and you can buy those cables at Guitar Center for $15 to $20. I have the LSR 305 JBL's on my desk and they are amazing. So good I bought a pair of them as a gift for a family member.&nbsp;

Are you able to plug a dynamic mic directly into the monitor and use for a small meeting?&nbsp;

Asked by: Htxsw89
Great question! I have a compact 4 channel Mackie mixer board that accommodates two wireless microphones and two 50ft corded mics. You must have the proper cables and adaptors to make it work for you. You don't need a degree in audio enginerring to set this up...try it today....thank me later.

Is there a way to control the volume of both of these speakers with one control i have purchased two of them for a turntable and to also use as computer speakers

Asked by: AJP1103
The best way is to set a static level on the speakers and control the volume from the source.
