KRK Rokit 5 G2 : theaudioandvideoguy's user review
"didnt like them"
The KRK Rokit 5 G2’s are a monitor that get a lot of good reviews. I can understand why they get a lot of good reviews too. I think its mainly because of the listening sound of these. Most people mistake listening sound with mixing and mastering sound. If you listen to music with these they will bring you great joy just because they have a full thick sound. But when it comes to mixing and mastering your work with them I don’t recommend it. They are very low end based and they seem to have too much natural bass for me. It was difficult to really get the bass right in mixes with them. This is not true for all KRK monitors but just the G2’s didn’t work to well for me .
As I stated they low end in these didn’t work good for me. The KRK 8’s most people think have to much bass and can get muddy but I think its all how you have yours set up. I hated how I got a muddy sound in these G2’s. I don’t feel like monitors this small should pump out muddy bass when turned up.
Overall, there are way to many other monitors in this same price range that can give you better quality than these can. But as I stated if you are just listening to music then this will sound great. They remind me something for a college kid who is doing some DJ type of stuff with is laptop they would be great for that. But as far as trying to get a master piece of quality and mixing with the KRK G’2s they didn’t work for me. The response just wasn’t flat enough or maybe just wasn’t what I was use to since it really helps for you to understand your monitors. I didn’t take the time to get to know these.
