I chose them over the Rokits 6, which, on paper, have a better frequency response in the lower end. Why? Even with a low freq response going down to "only" 52Hz compared to the KRK's 38Hz, the bass feels noticeably tighter. Also, I felt as if there was a veil over the mids compared to the Adams...their sound is clearer, that's for sure. I'm not saying I didn't hesitate though. As some other member pointed out, you have to listen before you buy. I was sold to the KRKs on paper (read: reviews & specs) but when I listened to the Adam F5 it was a whole other story. Yes the adam will lack a little sub-bass but you could as well wait a little and get the Fsub in the future.
