Studio Monitors for Sale on Reverb

Studio monitor speakers are designed for a relatively flat frequency response and transparent sound, meaning that what you're hearing coming from them is the most accurate representation of what's happening in your mix. Having a solid pair of studio monitors is immensely important regardless of where you record, from a home studio to a professional space, in order to guarantee that your mix is the best it can be before translated to the outside world.

Active Studio Monitors vs. Passive Studio Monitors

Active studio monitors (or powered studio monitors) are a plug-and-play solution that feature a power amp built right into the speaker cabinet. The all-in-one quality to active studio monitors make them really popular choices for studios of all sizes.

Passive studio monitors, on the other hand, require the connection to a power amp of your choosing—like older hi-fi home stereo speakers you might use with your record player. There are plenty of passive studio monitors well-worth the money (the Yamaha NS-10s are a popular choice), but the need for extra gear is still a worthy consideration.

Choose the Right Studio Monitors

Of course, there is no universally "perfect" speaker, and all of them have their own unique footprints that make them sound different in different environments. That's why it's important to find a set of monitors that not only suits you and your ear but also a pair that suits your room, your mixing style, and finally, your budget.
