Best Studio Monitors (Speakers)

Sound quality and sound balance of a studio monitor are the main factors to produce a high quality mixing music tracks. Due to that, we need to choose it very carefully according to our requirements and budget. In this article, I divided these studio monitors into two categories which are budgetpremium and Amazon recommendations. Budget studio monitors are for beginners and home studios. Premium studio monitors are for people who can afford a big amount and for people who are working as professionals.


I did not write detailed paragraphs about studio monitors but I listed all the key features about studio monitors that we should consider before buy. Also, in this article, I listed affiliate links from trusted sellers in the following tables according to the countries and regions. Studio monitors are listed according to their sound qualities. I am a sound engineer and please note that all of these ranking and reviewing are done according to my own 10 year working experiences in the music composing field. I do not recommend buying a single speaker even it is a good brand and it has good reviews because I believe that the music composer must do the balancing with the stereo width. Due to that, I always recommend buying a pair of speakers. Also, there are some more good brands in today’s market that I didn’t mention in this article because I am unable to find trusted sellers. So, I will try my best to update this article every month when the arrival of competitive new products and trusted sellers.
