Setting up a modern studio is nothing without a pair of studio monitor speakers, and if you’re a beginner, you don’t want to be investing a lot of money on just any piece of equipment. If you’re building a home recording studio or really just want to upgrade your current speakers, you’ve made a great decision (I remember I used laptop speakers and cheap headphones for the first 2-3 years of my production life and although it wasn’t necessarily “bad”, it definitely came to a point when I needed to get more serious). Studio monitors are the perfect solution to have just “better speakers” but also attain a certain quality only musicians will appreciate — a flat response, clear sound, no jumble in the high or low-ends. This combination will allow us to simply make better music, or just enjoy what we listen to more fully. Let’s get into some details before we recommend you some picks.
