Pro Loud, full and accurate sound
These monitors are great if you have a large studio and you want to fill it with sound. The HR824mk2 speakers are able to pump out a lot of volume without losing any clarity.
The sound is also very accurate. The highs are very clean and airy, revealing every detail of the music. The mids are warm full and very natural while the bass has great depth and punch, but does not get overpowering.
Pro Vertical connectors
These speakers can easily be mounted flush against the wall if that’s what your setup requires. The cables do not stick out from the back of the speakers horizontally. Instead, the cable connectors are vertical, so there will be no cable obstructions between the wall and the speaker.
Pro You’ll be able to get the optimal sound for your room
It’ll be easier for you to get the most accurate audio performance from these speakers regardless of your room setup. There is an Acoustic Space switch at the back of the speakers which correspond to how you position the speakers. Each setting has an illustration at the back of the speaker, minimizing the guesswork as to which one is best for you.
Pro Audio output can be adjusted
You can tweak the sound according to your preferences. You get switches for Low and High Frequency trims so you can reduce the bass if you find it too boomy or increase/decrease the highs to your liking.
Con Cabinet is large and heavy
You might have difficulty positioning these speakers if your studio space is limited. The speaker cabinet is large and heavy so setting these up optimally can be a challenge.
Con Bass is slightly boosted
Some consider the bass to be a bit too powerful for their tastes. You can reduce this by using the Low Frequency Cut switch.
