    Power, frequency response, the fact that it is pre-amplified.

    I used them several years to monitor recording studio and make mixes.

    SOUNDS

    The frequency curve is quite balanced and we can easily modify to suit the listening environment is full of handy switch behind each speaker.

    The sound is clear, relatively accurate, except that the bass is powerful but messy.

    The stereo image is good, the dynamic is good and respectuée.

    The big worry these speakers in sound in my opinion:
    - Messy problem of low (but not unpleasant)
    - Perhaps a little too much treble
    - Made it much too flattering to the ear-cons absolutely suitable for studio use!
    If you want a dance party …

    If you want a dance party and it pulsates, it is the ideal choice.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I used them for several years. Before I was mixing on small hi-fi speakers fairly neutral.

    I love the sound that tickles the ears pleasantly.

    For the same reason I do not want it to record and mix.

    The ratio Q / price is very good.

    No I do not do it again this election for the studio.

    The Behringer Truth B2030A's are a set of studio monitors designed for use in home studios. The monitors are advertised as being suitable for any sort of use in the studio, but I probably wouldn't recommend them for everything as Behringer would like you to believe. The monitors are active, so you don't need an external power amplifier, which is always a nice thing. The monitors have both 1/4" and XLR connections, which is also nice as it gives you some flexibility there. In terms of size, the B2030A's are about average, as they aren't huge but they definitely aren't the smallest studio monitors I've used.

They are to be used as near field monitors, but you could probably use them as mid field if you wanted...

    SOUNDS

    The sound of the Behringer Truth B2030A studio monitors is about average at best. They pick up frequencies starting at 50 Hz, so they don't have the greatest low end response, but still pack some punch down there. They have a pretty good mid and high end response as well, so in general they are pretty well rounded and do give you a good dynamic response as well. While I wouldn't say that these are perfect for mixing, you could do it if you knew them well enough and didn't have anything else to use, I'd just highly recommend checking the mixes on better sounding monitors when possible. I'd say that they are best suited for other types of uses like for monitoring and editing, but I guess you could mix with them if you wanted to...

    OVERALL OPINION

    The price of the Behringer Truth B2030A definitely makes up for all of it's short comings, but even so I'd probably recommend shopping around before making a choice. While these monitors will most likely be fine for most smaller home studio owners looking for a budget pair of monitors, I wouldn't recommend them to anyone looking to put together a legitimate studio where you could bring in clients or anything like that. These days we have a ton of different monitors out there to choose from in this price range, so while these will seem pretty enticing, I'd do yourself a favor a do your research to insure that you're getting the best possible monitors for your money.

    I actually had these in a studio I used to work in for awhile. I didn't buy them, they were just there so I used them quite often. These are self powered monitors so they require no amp. We ran these off of a M Audio Fast Track interface with a Mac Pro running Logic 8. These were our main mixing monitors until we upgraded to some JBL's.

    SOUNDS

    The stereo image was actually fairly good and was very accurate when we would test the final mixes on other gear. The dynamics were good enough for our small studio, but after we got the JBL's, we noticed a few things. One, the bass response on the Behringers wasn't very good.

The dynamics were good enough for our small studio, but after we got the JBL's, we noticed a few things. One, the bass response on the Behringers wasn't very good. They also were not as flat as the JBL's and when we redid some of the last mixes we did with the behringers on the JBL's, they came out much cleaner and more balanced. There are no effects on these monitors.

    OVERALL OPINION

    What I liked about these monitors at the time was they seemed decently flat and balanced, but after using the JBL's, we realized that these were not as good as we thought they were. I think the studio paid around $400 for the pair. Personally, I don't care for behringer stuff when it comes to audio (as opposed to midi) applications so I wouldn't have paid that much. I give them a 7 out of 10 for sound quality. They worked fairly well for us for the 6 - 8 months that I used them. Yes, I have used Events, Jbl's, wharfedales, Mackies, etc... and the behringers are very low on my list. NO, I would not buy these and wouldn't recommend them to anyone.
