The thing I like most about these speakers is how balanced they are. I'm always so extremely analytical about what I'm hearing and think "The bass sounds a little hyped..." but I realize it's actually the way the audio in that particular song had been engineered. These speakers are all the best from Focal in a price range the thrifty professional can access (especially if you catch them on sale!) A note on the high frequencies: I have heard Focal's entire range of consumer studio monitors in their near- field models and, yes, there is a noticeable difference in clarity between these and the next step up: Focal's "Shape" line. However, everything on the Alpha's is noticeable, natural, and balanced. I also wondered if there was a lack of mid-range dynamics yet again becomes noticeable that it was the engineering choices in the song I'm listening to which defined how much was happening in the mids. Seriously, these speakers are great. Nothing to complain about.
