My first pair of monitors were ROKIT 5’s back in 2012ish. Then upgraded to HS8’s around 2017. I was happy with both monitors while I had them, for where I was at musically (at the time). But eventually I evolved to wanting even more detail (2020). I highly recommend these if you’re serious about music production. The detail is what I needed now, but most importantly, they don’t fatigue my ears the way the Yamaha’s did, when I need to turn them up. Again, these are for serious level production. You can craft a bass line or a kick with confidence on these without any added colourization. Also, the tilt function is so key for aiming these at your head. Love these. I made the right choice. There’s a reason why David Guetta and Avicii use(d) these. Definitely recommend.
