The sound is amazing for near field monitors - very neutral - and the highs are brilliant (due the the X-Art tweeters) - Although these speakers are active and have their own amplification, when combined together with a decent DAC and additional amplification, they really shine. For the price performance, they really offer studio quality levels:
