Should I Buy Speakers or Headphones? An Extensive 2020 Guide


Since I can remember myself, I was always interested in excellent audio quality. I have literally spend hundreds of hours listening, testing, and reviewing headphones and speakers. Recently I realized that more people are trying to decide if they should purchase speakers or headphones.

If you’re one of them struggling folks keep reading because you might find exactly what you’re looking for 🙂 : 

  • If you low on budget, value mobility, or if you want to experience music at the greatest possible detail, then you should buy a set of headphones.
  • If you want to experience more emotion or you enjoy playing loud music, you should buy a pair of speakers (or even better a pair of studio monitors).

That was the short answer. Of course, there are a lot of details to cover! Stick around if you’re curious about learning what the best headphones and speakers are. I will also reveal to you the 4 reasons you should buy headphones and the 3 reasons you should buy speakers! Enjoy!

4 Reasons You Should Buy Headphones Instead of Speakers

Okay, I have created a list that will help you decide if you should buy headphones or speakers.

1) You Should Buy Headphones If You Value Portability

Portability is the primary benefit that headphones have over speakers. If you want to listen to music while you are at the gym, commuting, or when outside walking, then headphones are what you want.

  • I don’t recommend purchasing earbuds because most of them have low quality and may damage your hearing after prolonged usage! However, if you absolutely must buy a pair later in this article, I will list a few models that I find to be way superior to most commercial earbuds out there. 

2) You Should Buy Headphones Instead of Speakers If You’re Low on Budget

Because headphones are a lot cheaper to manufacture, $250 headphones offer much higher quality compared to $250 speakers or studio monitors.

But there are a few exceptions to this rule such as the KRK RP5 G4 (click on the link to visit Amazon) 

or the Yamaha HS5 

(click on the link to visit Amazon). These models lean more towards the $300 mark, which is a great deal for the value and clarity you get.

So if you have about $300 to spend I would buy wither the KRK or the Yamaha. And if your budget is smaller than that (and saving is not an option) then you can’t go wrong with a pair of headphones. Have a look at the best headphones bellow. 🙂

3) You Should Buy Headphones If You Want to Start with Music Production

Headphones are not a must for music production, but they are handy though.

I should mention that I always advise beginners to learn to produce on studio monitors (speakers) and not on headphones, but that may not always be possible. Maybe you cant play music in your house, you may have a low budget, or maybe you travel a lot. These are valid reasons not to buy studio monitors. Yet if you can, buy both a set of studio monitors and a set of headphones.

Headphones are easy. All you need is your laptop and a DAW (the music software you will use). With studio monitors, you will also need an external sound card and cables to connect everything together.

Buying a set of cans is much cheaper and easier.

If you want to learn how to start producing/recording music with less than $100.

4) You Should Buy Headphones Because They Sound Better Than Speakers

The main reason why headphones sound better than speakers is because there is no room interference. You see, when you use speakers (or studio monitors) listen to music, you’re not just listening to the speaker itself but you’re also listening to the room of the speakers are in.

Each room has reflections and other characteristics that affect the final sound. Reflections occur from hard surfaces such as walls, tables, windows, etc. Therefore, we always want to balance them out by placing material that absorbs sound such as a couch, carpets, curtains or books. On some occasions and if it’s not possible to change the layout of the room, we could use professional sound absorbers such as studio foam or bass traps.

3 Reasons You Should Buy Speakers Instead of Headphones

Okay, I have created a list that will help you decide if you should buy headphones or speakers.

1) You Should Buy Speakers If You Want to Feel a Lot of Emotion in Music

From my experience, the Biggest advantage speakers offer is emotional transfer.

When we use speakers, we are not only able to feel the musical vibrations, but the psychoacoustics is also enhanced. This is because of the left and right channel blending together, creating a visceral effect.

I don’t say that headphones are bad, but its a fact that they do lack emotional transfer.

2) You Should Buy Speakers If You Enjoy High Volume

The other advantage speakers offer is high-volume. Yes, you can crank up the volume on your headphones; it will sound great, but trust me, when I turn up the volume of my Yamaha HS5 or my Behringer Truth monitors, the whole new musical dimension is added.

I remember when I was a child, I used to place my speakers left and right of my bed, directly over my head; then I would then lay in my bed, close my eyes, crank up the volume, and enjoy my favorite music. This was a great experience (for the time) bud bad for my hearing, I don’t recommend placing the speakers so close to your ears (!).

Anyway, I still sometimes feel the need to turn up the volume to enjoy my favorite songs!

3) You Should Buy Speakers If You Are Serious About Music Production

It is true that you can produce music with only your laptop and a set of cans, but using studio monitors is wayyy more enjoyable! 

Whether I have the choice, I produce music on my speakers, not on my cans. I like it better that way. I still use my headphones when I’m outside when it’s late at night, and for critical listening.

I also use my headphones just listening to my fav songs, A LOT!

A Recap: Headphones VS Speaker

As you can see, there is no clear winner. Both speakers and headphones have their flaws and benefits. Nevertheless, here is my verdict:

  1. Are you low on budget, or do you want to experience all the details? Go for headphones.
  2. Do you want to experience more emotion and enjoy playing music loud? Go for speakers (or even better studio monitors).

1) Headphones: Headphones offer better quality for the same price. Investing about $250 for a set of cans will place you at the top 1% of the headphone users. Acquiring headphones of this quality will open up a new world for you. 

For less than $100 you will have a set of cans with good audio quality such as the AudioTechnica listed bellow.

2) Speakers: Speakers (or studio monitors) offer the benefit of added emotion because of their size. This is even more true for larger models that have a good low end, such as the KRK RP7 or the Yamaha HS7. Both listed below.

1) TOP HEADPHONE CHOICE Under $100: Audio-Technica ATHM40x

DESIGN

Comfort Level: 7

I love these headphones! The upgraded ATH40x comes with more comfortable earcups and headband. Also, the padding he was very soft and won’t press your ears.

These are excellent headphones for either gaming, music listening, or even music production, but still, I would like the ear pads to be a bit more comfortable.

It is not uncommon for a lot of users to replace the earpads with high-quality ones. A popular choice is the Audio Technica MSR7 earpads.

 They feel softer and more luxurious than the ATHM40x earpads. That said, for most people, the original earpads will be just fine since they are not bad at all! If you decide to purchase these headphones, I suggest you give the original earpads a try, you can always upgrade them later.

Durability: 6

The ATH40x will likely last a long time, but they feel a bit cheap, you can tell the difference in build quality if you compare them with premium cans. However, they are still one of my favorite headphones. 

I can guarantee that you will forget the somewhat “cheap feel” once you hear those cans sing! Their sound is really good!

Keep in mind that there are a lot of consumer headphones that have great design, cost three times as much the ATH40x cost, but don’t sound half as good!

A nice and welcoming upgrade is the replaceable cable they have added, this alone significantly extends the life expectancy of the ATH40x!

Sound Quality: 6

Frequency response: 15 Hz to 24 kHz

As I said, the sound quality of the ATH40x is very good. They have a nice low-end spectrum and good highs. Nothing fabulous here, but it will satisfy and cover the needs of 90% of the buyers.

In more detail:

Low-Frequencies

The ATHM40x offers a good low end, however, there are some od harmonics present that mud the lower frequency spectrum bit. 

Also, don’t expect to hear a lot of punch. However, what’s good about these cans is that the low end is not artificially and changed; thus, they offer much more natural sound. That is something I like.

MidFrequencies

There are only positive things to say about the mid-frequency spectrum, as they are very clear and well balanced without annoying frequencies! 

High-Frequencies

The ATHM40x has good highs with the occasional added “bite” that could bother you sometimes if the tracker listening has a lot of high frequencies in it. This is not very noticeable, but it is unknown to me a couple of times.

SUMMARY OF THE ATHM40x

The M40x is a solid choice, especially for the price they are selling for. If you have a small budget, these are the headphones you want. I recommend them!

2) TOP HEADPHONE CHOICE Under $200: Beyerdynamic DT 770 32 Ohm

Frequency Response: 5 Hz-35,000 Hz

Image found at: Head Fi

DESIGN

Comfort Level: 9

Okay, you’re in for a treat because these headphones are the most comfortable headphones I’ve ever tried. Seriously. The earpads are VERY soft and velvety, giving a great feel, and I can wear them for lengthened periods of time, and often I forget that they are on my head!

The headphone’s band sits on your head very well; also it is covered with good quality leather. The DT770 come with a 9.8ft (three-meter) chord that allows you to move easily without agonizing about the length of the cable.

Durability: 8

The DT770 are very durable, and they should be for the price. If you treat him well, that will stay with you for many years. On the side of the headphone are metal forks that make you look stylish when you were them. Also, I must mention that the pads and the letter around the band are easily replaceable.

If you look online, there is even a wide choice of materials and colors for you to choose from, meaning you can “pimp them up” according to your style and preference.

Sound Quality: 9

The Beyerdynamic DT 770 has outstanding sound quality! You will experience a clean and open but also a spacious and gorgeous sound.

It is no secret that the DT 770 equivalent with much higher-end headphones close to the $800 value.

Low-Frequencies

The DT 770 comes with a natural and un-boosted low end that is accurate and precise; I didn’t experience muddy lows, which was the case with the ATHM40x, at least occasionally.

The DT 770 also has a small lower frequency boost meaning the sound is purer. This is not a good or a bad thing; however, I enjoy it—the flatter the sound, the better for me.

When I compare the DT 770 to the DT 990, I find that the DT 770 has a much more enjoyable low end -even if the DT 990 has a broader peak around 60Hz. (a peak is similar to a boost).

Lastly if you want to track sub-basses and kicks, you’re in luck! The DT 770 is excellent for low-frequency tracking since they go as low as 5Hz. 

Mid-Frequencies

The mids are also very well-balanced, offering an accurate representation; they are great for hearing footsteps (for the gamers out there) and producing music. I would like them to be a tad more detailed, but that is not possible due to their closed-back form.

High-Frequencies

The highs are crisp and clear; they truly shine in this department.

The clarity of these headphones makes bright distortion and over-limiting very obvious!

SUMMARY OF THE Beyerdynamic DT 770

The beyerdynamics DT 770 are solid. They are closed-back headphones that you can use in both very quiet or very loud environments. No matter if you are producing music playing games simply want to enjoy your favorite artists, the Beyerdynamics DT 770 is a great choice!

WARNING: The DT 770 Comes In Three Versions 

  1. The 32 Ohm version.
  2. The 250 Ohm version.
  3. The 600 Ohm version.
  • The main difference between the three versions of the DT 770 is their output signal level. 
  • For the 250 and the 600 Ohm versions, YOU NEED an external sound card or a headphone preamp to use them properly. If you don’t have one, the output signal (meaning their volume) will be very low. Typically the 250 & 600 Ohm versions are NOT recommended for listening to music on smartphones.
  • But the 32 Ohm version is “plug and play” and does work great with phones, tablets, and any other device. Also, you won’t need any additional hardware for it to work properly. 

I advise you to grab today a pair of the DT 770 and experience the highest sound quality for a great price.

2) Top Headphone Choice at & Above $200: AKG K701 & AKG K702

This is the frequency responce of the AKG K701

Image found at: reference-audio-analyzer

All the headphones I recover in this article are great for music production, mixing, and music enjoyment. But if I had to choose one (and only one) set of cans, I would choose the AKG K702. I even like them better than the DT 770 covered above.

Because both the K701 & K702 are so similar, I decided to combine both reviews saving us both some time. I will address the minor differences as we proceed.

FUN FACT: A few years back, Quincy Jones in partnership with AKG launched his signature headphones, the AKG Q701. As the name suggests, the Q701 was inspired by the K701.

Apart from the fact that the Q701 came in different colors and that there was a small boost in the lower frequency spectrum, these two headphones are completely identical! Unfortunately, the Q701 was discontinued leaving us with the equally good K701 and K702 models.

DESIGN

Comfort Level: 8.5

I find both the AKG K701 and the AKG K702 to be very comfortable. They offer soft paddings and a comfortable headband. There are mentions that for some, the headband is not that comfortable, but this is not my experience. I can wear them for hours without feeling any pain on my scalp or getting warm years. I really love these headphones!

The leather headband is real, not an imitation. They are quite big – almost 8 inches across and nearly 8 inches tall. The cans are oversized and enclose the ear completely. Each earpiece is about 5 inches in diameter. 

They offer an open back design that is perfect for mixing purposes.

Both models have equal dimensions and weight.

Durability: 9

Again very similar. Both the K701 and K702 will last for years if you treat them right. Don’t drop them and don’t use them outdoors, their open-back design allows sound to escape and this will likely annoy others. 

The main difference is that the AKG K702 has two advantages over the K701. The K702 has a detachable cable and replaceable ear pads. These two features will likely make the K702 last longer. 

The adjustable headband in both the K701 and the K702 is prone to damage by wear and tear. This is something that you cant avoid since wear is inevitable. That said, it is possible to replace the headband if necessary.

Sound Quality: 9.5

With one word? Marvelous. 

Both models offer pristine and crystal clear sound. Their audio frequency bandwidth is from 10Hz up to 39.800Hz. This is great, but the human ear can hear only up to 20.000 Hz, nothing wrong with the 19.800Hz extra, it is just you won’t hear them. 🙂

If you read the reviews at Amazon, you will notice that almost all of them have something positive to say, I read one review where someone said that the AKG 701 is like L-S-D, they open up a new world!

Here is the Amazon review (please ignore the grammatical mistakes)

“These headphones are a lot like L-S-D, it’s pretty hard to describe just how eye-opening and reality-altering these beautiful cans are for a producer like me.

I have obsessed over audio production for years now using any equipment I could get my hands on, and after a couple weeks with these I have seen my projects go from amateur to mainstream quality.

The first time I put them on they were very soft-sounding, but after a half hour of letting my brain adjust, I could hear every trick being used, every eq curve, every compressor and filter. They made some of the independently produced songs I used to love sound unpolished, but they made those amazing few sound so good it brought tears to my eyes.

Without a doubt, if music is important to you and you’ve never experienced true hi-fi, these headphones will be a life changing experience for you.

Also, I wouldn’t worry too much about buying them used, they can take a beating and the noise floor actually lowers with age. Super tough cloth padding and hard leather strap, very attractive and strong enough to throw in your backpack.”

  • Both the AKG K701 and the AKG K702 were created for professional studio usage. 
  • However, they can be used without an audio interface or a dedicated amp. Most laptops and smartphones are powerful enough to power them.
  • Mixing engineers and mastering engineers use these cans a lot for critical listening. Also, audiophiles praise these headphones because they offer a new dimension of clarity without added coloration. This means that they reproduce music pure, exactly how it was intended.

Low-Frequencies

The lower frequencies are accurate and well balanced. The K702 has a better and more robust lower end compared with the K701. Also, with the K702, you will experience a stronger kick and more punch. That said, they both have a solid low end; it’s just that the K702 is a bit better.

Mid-Frequencies

The midrange in both models is exceptional, but the K702 is a bit better. A good midrange is what allows instruments such as guitars or pianos to shine. 

High-Frequencies

The highs in both models are very accurate; this is where they truly shine. Some find the highs a bit too bright. I don’t. 

SUMMARY of the AKG K701 & the AKG 702

  • Both the AKG K701 and the AKG 702 are extremely well-crafted headphones. 
  • They are very durable, comfortable, they offer pristine sound quality and are even endorsed by the legend himself, Quincy Jones! 
  • Their strong point is that they faithfully reproduce every sound source without adding too much bass, mids or treble.

That said, if analytical/uncolored listening is not your goal, then these headphones are not for you. You should instead seek out non-linear headphones that do give you a “colored” listening experience. 

But if you are like me and you want a pure listening experience, then the AKG K’s are 100% right for you!

If you find yourself lingering between the DT 770 and the AKG K701/K702 I suggest you order both from Amazon, carefully test drive them for a few days and then send one of them back.

Personally, I find the AKG K701/K702 headphones better and well worth the extra $$! They are a true audio- treasure, and I really enjoy listening and producing music to them.

  • Both models offer extremely accurate balance across the audio spectrum, tight bass, neutral coloring, superb imaging, no distortion, and a full natural dynamic range.
  • If I had to choose between them, I would go for the K702 just for the tighter lower end, the detachable cable, and the removable earpads.
  • I can honestly say that the AKG K702 offers the best audio experience I have ever had. Period.

Watching Movies With The AKG K701 & AKG K702 

The AKG K701 and the AKG K702 are also great for watching movies. You will hear a lot of details that previously when unnoticed, such as murmured conversations behind closed doors. 

The way these headphones are built is they offer a truly spacious sound, which is particularly noticeable when watching movies or Tv series.

A Word of Caution Before Buying Headphones!

  1. If your only exposure to music has been through colored headphones and over-compressed music such as the Beats by Dr. Dre then you might not like the models I recommend in this article. 
  2. If you decide to go with either the K701 or the K702, give yourself a few days to get used to them. With these headphones, it’s not “all about the base” but all about unique crystal clear sound quality.

The Difference Between “Bad” Consumer Headphones and Quality Neutral Headphones Is…

The frequency response of consumer-grade headphones typically looks like a smile. 🙂 The lows and highs are artificially boosted by the headphone’s particular design. This makes most consumer-grade headphones unsuitable for critical/analytical listening because the amount of coloring can be difficult to judge. 

  • Most, if not all, “bad headphones” boost the low end significantly (+5dB), dip the upper mids by (-5dB), and sometimes also boost the high frequencies. 
  • You could say that consumer-grade headphones purposely alter the audio spectrum in the low, mid, and high frequencies. 

I throw around a lot the phrase “bad headphones,” but in reality, there is nothing bad about them. They are just adding (a lot) of their own character.

It’s like watching a movie with a filter that alters the colors, some like it others don’t. I prefer my music ( and my films) to be as close to the original as possible! But that is my opinion, and that’s how I do it.

BONUS: TOP EARBUD CHOICE under $100: 1MORE Triple Driver In-Ear Hi-Res

With over 5.000 reviews on Amazon and voted by Cnet as “The best $100 headphone you’ve never heard of”. It’s easy to see the value that these earbuds offer.

DESIGN

Comfort Level: 8

I find the 1More Triple Driver in-ear to be comfortable. I can wear them for prolonged periods without hurting my ears. They also come with different sizes of silicone and foam ear tips for you to choose from, I use the large version. 

While working out, I found my self adjusting them from time to time; this is something I experience with most headphones. However, most of the time, the 1More staid in place. A trick I used is placing the cable behind my ear; this gave me extra stability and comfort.

Durability: 8

With their finished aluminum cover and Kevlar reinforced cable, they seemed very durable, when I hold them, they feel not cheap at all projecting a premium feel. They also have a three-button remote and microphone, wich both are compatible with Apple and Android devices.

Sound Quality: 8

Their sound is detailed and well balanced.

This is one of the best $100 sounding in-ear headphones I’ve ever had the pleasure of using.

Each side has three drives (a single dynamic driver and two balanced drivers) with a total of 32 Ohms. Don’t let the high 32 Ohms scare you, My Huawei Mate 20 Pro and My Lenovo tablet have more than enough power to crank up the volume.

Low-Frequencies

The lower frequency is a bit emphasized, but for most songs well balanced. The 1More will satisfy both the bass lowers but also the ones who enjoy a natural balanced sound (like myself).

Mid-Frequencies

The midrange is not as detailed as I would want it to be but still detailed enough to satisfy most users. 

High-Frequencies

I found the Highs to sound good, sometimes a bit harsh, but then again, I can be quite picky. If you have an equalizer on your phone, you may want to decrease a bit the 5K-10K frequencies. Other than that, I have no complaints!

SUMMARY OF THE 1MORE Triple Driver

The 1More offer very good sound quality, especially for the price and, is a massive upgrade from the standard earbuds most phones come with these days. If you want high fidelity sound on a budget, these are made for you!

P.S. Something important I want to mention about these earbuds. 

Beware of counterfeits! 

Unfortunately, “fakes” exist, especially for popular products such as these earbuds or the Beats by Dr. Dre. To help you avoid being scammed, You can easily identify the fakes by their muffed sound and “wrong” packaging. I also included a few pictures found from trusted Amazon reviews that show the difference between the real ones and the fake ones.

 

There is nothing to be afraid of, just once you get them, double-check them. That’s all!

The Best Speakers (Studio Monitors) for Everyday Music Listening, Gaming Music Production ,Mixing and Watching Movies

Tannoy Reveal 502

(click on the link to visit amazon)

This is a great budget option that offers a wide sweet spot and excellent quality for the price. They offer good bass but don’t expect to hear the same bass magnitude as the Yamaha HS8 or the Behringer B1031A.

The Reveal 502 comes with:

  • 5-inch woofer
  • 1-inch Tweeter
  • 75 Watt Bi-Amp (50W + 25W)
  • 3,5 mm Stereo-Mini jack AUX (input for Smartphone or Tablet)
  • EQ with the options “high boost,” “neutral,” and “high cut.”

KRK RP5 Studio Monitor, Black (RP5G4-NA)

(click on the link to visit amazon)

You might’ve heard of the brand KRK, they are very popular and a great choice for music production and everyday music listening. The KRK RP5 i is a mid-budget speaker that will surprise you with its power and detail.

The new generation Rokit’s (Gen 4) offer a flatter frequency response, and a bigger bass compared to the older Rokit Gen 3. 

KRK RP7 Studio Monitor, Black (RP7G4)

(click on the link to visit amazon)

The KRK RP7’s are a solid choice and the bigger brother of the KRK RP5’s. 

These are some of the features that come with the RP7

  • A 7-inch cone woofer and a 1-inch Kevlar tweeter
  • 55 Watt output power
  • Full Frequency response of: 43Hz – 40KHz
  • A Graphic EQ with 25 different settings
  • The KRK App, Room Correction Tools
  • Onboard LCD Visual driven EQ

One feature that I find really exciting is the LCD screen on the back of the KRK Rokit series! This screen is designed to help you get the perfect sound for your room.

As far as I know of KRK is the first company to insert an LCD screen on studio monitors! 

They have also created an app for Android and iPhone, which is quite fun to use and will guide you through the process of proper speaker placement.

What Type of Studio Monitors Do I Need for Music Production?

If your main goal is producing music, then you have hundreds (if not thousands) of studio monitor choices. Luckily I have already done the research for you and identified the best studio monitors (speakers) on a budget.

At this point, I want to make clear that high prices and well-known brands do not blind me. That’s why the products I list here are not only “hidden gems,” they are also reasonably priced. When I buy something, I never want to overspend; instead, I am looking for the best price possible, I imagine you want the same.

What Studio Monitors (Speakers) Are Best for Me and My Music?

If you’re a beginner and unsure if music production/songwriting will become a permanent hobby for you, I then recommend purchasing the PreSonus Eris 4.5. They are inexpensive, reliable, and offer good quality for their price range. 

However, if you want to step up your game and buy a pair of studio monitors that will last you a lifetime, then I suggest you purchase the Yamaha series. Either the Yamaha HS5

 or the Yamaha HS7.

The HS5 and HS7 are identical, they offer the same audio and build quality, the only difference is that the HS7 is bigger (7-inch) than the HS5 (5-inch) and the HS7 has a fuler low end.

How to Decide If You Need 5-Inch, 7-Inch or 8-Inch Studio Monitors?

If you decide to go for the Yamaha series, then you should (a) consider the price difference and (b) consider if hearing the sub frequencies is important to you or not.

If Price Is Not an Issue, Then My Suggestion Is to Buy the Yamaha HS7 or The HS8

If you’re planning on producing bass-heavy music, then, the HS7 is what you want. The HS8 is a great option, and they are identical to the HS7 and HS5; the only difference is the size.

If, for some reason, you don’t enjoy the look of the Yamahas, you can always choose the KRK Rokit G4 series. KRK offers the same monitor sizes as Yamaha does. Thus, they have 5-inch and 7-inch monitors available, choose according to your needs.

On the other hand, if you find that the 7-inch models are beyond your current budget or if you don’t produce bass-heavy music, then your best option is a 5-inch model —either the Yamaha HS5 or the KRK 5 Rokit G4 studio monitors.

A Recap: These Are the Best Studio Monitors (Speakers) for Music Production

1) Best Small Size Monitor: Yamaha HS5

(scroll up to see the link to this product)

The HS series offers the best bang for your buck, and they are great for both beginners and experienced musicians. I guarantee these monitors will surprise you with their surgical precision. These are the best 5-inch monitors you can buy and is what I currently use.

2) Best Big Size Monitor: Yamaha HS7 and Yamaha HS8

(scroll up to see the link to this product)

Same as their little brother only with a deeper low end, these 7-inch and 8-inch monitors are a solid choice and the best you can buy at this price range. Buy them If you must hear the sub frequencies while mixing or producing.

3) Second Best Small or Big Size Monitor: KRK Rokit G4 Series: 

(scroll up to see the link to this product)

This is your alternate optionIf, for some reason, you don’t enjoy the Yamaha HS series, have a look at the Krk Rokit monitors. They are very popular, especially among music producers. Just pick your preferred monitor size. That said, I still recommend the Yamahas. Period.

4) Best Budget Monitor For Very Tight Budgets: PreSonus Eris E4.5: 

(scroll up to see the link to this product)

This is your budget option. If you’re on a tight budget, these 4.5-inch monitors are your best choice.
