Auralex MoPAD - Monitor Isolation Pads for Pair of Speakers (4 Pieces per Side)

You Pay: $31.12
Product Highlights
  • For Pair of Studio Monitors
  • Wedge or Horizontal Placement

Sometimes cheap and easy solutions provide benefits that far outweigh the cost. In this instance, isolating one's monitors from what they are standing on, be it speaker stands or the meter bridge of a console, can provide an instant improvement in bass response and stereo imaging. The MoPAD Monitor Isolation Pads from Auralex provide sonic isolation between monitors and whatever they are resting on, instantly improving the accuracy of the entire monitoring system.

MoPAD Monitor Isolation Pads are affordable, easy to implement and really effective at de-coupling monitors from the room and all its contents. No matter how good the mixing desk, microphones, preamps, cables and other pieces of gear that have been patiently accumulated, one is not truly hearing what the recordings sound like until the monitors are insulated from their environment. Depending on how the monitors are oriented (level or tilted), not all of the eight pieces will be used.

Made of proprietary, high density foam
"Tightens" and increases sonic detail of studio reference monitors, particularly low frequencies
Lightweight and ready to use immediately
Offers five angles for optimal monitoring

      I just got this set of Monitor pads to have my monitor speakers to be place on it. They can form in few ways, depending if you are tilting up or tilting down your speakers towards your ear. It is very important to have speakers aim towards your ear for good "Stereo Image" or "Sweet Spot"The pads can be arrange to let your speakers point straight too.
      It can isolate the speakers form vibration on your table which will lose the sound accuracy.
      These pads are wide enough for most size bookshelf monitor speakers.

      These are great... if you have phatty monitors. I have little Blue Sky EXO2 monitors. You need the pad to compress by 10-15% under the speaker to get proper isolation. Too little and the foam transmits vibes, too much and the vibes go straight to the stand/desk. I ended up cutting what I needed(1") from the length of the pads and using the rest for my sub. I measured the depth that my monitors compressed into the foam, found what that was 15% of, then subtracted a small amount and it came to 1" then cut them with a bread knife. Look up my monitors to get an idea of what to expect. The fact that you have to do this to get the whole story is rediculous. There should be a wight to compression ratio in the description. You could DIY something much cheaper and precalculated to work with YOUR gear.

          I like not worrying about spills or waking up anyone when the bass goes a little too hard with the volume down at night on my 8" monitors.Love that I can use them to angle my monitors when my setup changes too!

            I got these isolation pads for my boyfriend's birthday, along with some Eris speakers. He is absolutely thrilled with the quality of the pads, as well as the versatility. They do not interfere with the purity of the speakers and provide great angles for diverse listening experiences.

            These are great. Isolate our speakers to keep from hearing bass resonating that is not really in your project. You'll be amazed at how much bass resonates through your desk or workstation.
            B&H has the best price and service on these.

                I spent a long time avoiding buying these. $ dollars for just foam seemed like a bit of a stretch, but I think the improvement is worth it. I performed a not-so-scientific test of playing music through my monitors and feeling the shelf they are on, before and after the foam. It definitely decreases the transfer of vibrations.

                Prevents low freq from going down your speaker stands. I havent exhaustively tested it with a mic and looking at freq response but by just listening I feel my speakers sound less boomy. My stands are on hardwood floor so its good for those scenarios.

Def to buy again from here and I recommend these auralex mopads just the best in the market!!!!

                I use my MoPADS under all my bookshelf speakers. They completely isolate speaker vibrations and allow you to angle the speakers for the best sound. This is very helpful when setting up your surround system.

                  The pads are being used for my JBL LSR 2328P 8" Studio Monitors. Currently set up on my desk top while I await monitor stands to allow more distance between the 2. The additional wedges are great for angling them so as to point the tweeter directly at my ears as recommended by monitor mfgs. I have Edirol MA-15D's in another room and will be getting another pad set for them so evidently I'm pleased.

                    They won't turn bad speakers into good ones but definitely help to reduce low frequency distortion from the surface they are standing on. If your speakers are standing on concrete blocks or granite, even steel or glass you may be alright using plastic eraser as cushion. I placed my speakers on a wooden board and those pads do help to reduce vibrations, thus they improve overall sound. There is more to it however, just clap your hands where you listen to your speakers, if you hear an echo/reverb of your hand claps you have a much bigger problem and need more treatment that just those pads.

                      I stuck these under my KRK RP5s and they helped to remove quite a bit of desk rattle. The low end is a little tighter now and things are less muddy overall. I know some people squawk about the price, but if you factor in the time it would take to cut foam to the right size and so forth these really aren't a bad deal.

                        I couldnt believe how much these Mopads cleaned up the sound coming from my relatively inexpensive yamaha monitors. Even my wife, who scoffs when i mention subtle differences in audio quality, noticed the difference.

                        These are decent for the money. I definitely prefer primacoustic in general and/or isoacoustics if you have the money.

                        This is probably the best acoustical treatment you can get for under $50. They isolate the bass, though not completely. They look nice. Can't ask for more.

                          Bought these to isolate my studio monitors at my desktop. Before, the speakers thumped a bit much, and caused unwanted vibrations. Tried some rubber feet which did dampen the vibrations, but seemed to weaken some frequencies. Always saw these and wanted them. Glad I got them. Fixed all my issues, and like upgrading to a top-of-the-line studio monitor. Assorted wedges allow for upward or downward projection. So impressed I am buying the Gramma for my floor speakers in my home theater setup.

                          Your speakers need to be large/heavy.

                            These are great... if you have phatty monitors. I have little Blue Sky EXO2 monitors. You need the pad to compress by 10-15% under the speaker to get proper isolation. Too little and the foam transmits vibes, too much and the vibes go straight to the stand/desk. I ended up cutting what I needed(1") from the length of the pads and using the rest for my sub. I measured the depth that my monitors compressed into the foam, found what that was 15% of, then subtracted a small amount and it came to 1" then cut them with a bread knife. Look up my monitors to get an idea of what to expect. The fact that you have to do this to get the whole story is rediculous. There should be a wight to compression ratio in the description. You could DIY something much cheaper and precalculated to work with YOUR gear.
