Small Sized Monitors for Editing

The Neumann KH120As are unbeatable. They are pretty small in size (I'm pretty sure they only have a 5.25 inch woofer) but they certainly don't sound small. The soundstage is absolutely gigantic and the bass extends well below 60hz. They translate better than almost any monitor I've heard and my mixes have never sounded better since switching to these. After using them for a few years now, they are, without a doubt, the best investment in gear I have made in a long time. They are awesome for casual listening too.

I realize this may be the wrong forum (high end), but the JBL LSR305 are really good. They're small and light. I've done some good mixes with them.

In my opinion, the BM5 and BM Compact are bad. They are just too noisy and they seem to pick up interference. They're notable for also not using grounded plugs (compared to the rest of the Dynaudio line.) You have to start with the BM6 and above there.

I would suggest the small Genelecs and the KH120A however, honestly, open-ear headphones from Sennheiser (600 and up) or the like are a much better choice if doing editing and not mixing. You'll have a better chance of catching any issues and they'll be comfortable. Much better frequency response than any small speakers (better for catching noises while tracking.) Pair with a good headphone amp which hopefully has a crossfeed feature to shift the soundstage to a more speaker-like image and you'll be hard pressed to find anything better.

I have the Pelonis 42 and think they are brilliant for low volume editing,mixing.
I don't want any bloated low end,it's all about the mids.I love using these for vocal sessions
and the ability to position them easily is nice.

Lately i have been using the internal mac book pro speakers as well,kinda crappy in all the right ways.
