JBL 306P MKII Reviews

So clean you could eat off the soundwaves

By Kyle

I use these for video editing (paired with a Scarlett 2i2) and the sound is crisp and clear with supporting, but not overpowering, bass. The sweet spot is perfect for a large desktop setup.

Great for the studio.

Perfect fore the studio, great range and output.

Great sound, great price

By Leroy

Currently these monitors are on my desk, horizontally configured, with signal coming from a SMSL M200. Sound is what I was expecting after reading numerous reviews on monitors. The bass at 0dB (not dampened with the switch on the back) is quite robust, all sounds are punchy/clear, and imaging is great. These were bigger than I expected, because I initially was going to buy the 305p's and didn't read the dimension specs. When they arived, the boxes for each speaker was about the size of an AC window unit box. I probably could get better sound if my desk was larger and I was further away from them. My desk is 48 wide by 24 deep and if it was any smaller I wouldn't be able to fit them. Standalone speaker stands or a couple of tall nightstands could help someone get around that. I use Ableton and produce House music, listen to some funk and rap, everything sounds how I would want it to. There is little audio bleed to its sides or rear, which is great since I have a few roomates and little sound isolation in my room. I have not tried to really push them. I mostly keep the volume nobs on the speakers at 50%, and the DAC at -20dB. It's plenty loud for me at this point and I don't hear any artifacts. Another option I should consider is dropping the bass response to -3dB and then turn the DAC up to -15dB for more focus and clarity in the mids/highs for Classical, Folk, or other genres while minimizing noise pollution.

Great sound

Monitors arrived fast and intact! They sound great in the home studio we are building in the spare bedroom! This is a powered speaker so if you buy a pair both have to be plugged into an outlet.

I hear no hiss

By Jack

Just chiming in on this since I've read the negative reviews. I've had these for about a year. I hear no hiss. I am a pro video editor with 30 years experience and thousands of mixes. I've used just about every common studio speaker either in my studio or with clients over the years. Newsflash, these are not as good as the ones that cost 5x as much, but they don't cost 5x as much. And the difference is not 5x, more like .5x. Can't imagine not being satisfied with these in a home studio environment. The whir of your computer and GPU fans will drown out any appreciable noise (of which there is not a noticeable amount). Not sure anyone is mixing albums in high-end soundproof studios on these...on the other hand people are going to listen to that album on sucky bluetooth headphones or speakers, so maybe get over it?

Terrific speaker for the price

I have been listening to these for several months now, and remain very happy with them. You don't have to look far to find favorable reviews of the 300 series, and with good reason. Very, very strong for the money. Pay close attention, though, to the rear panel proximity and X-over switches - they will make a significant difference in at least some installations.

Buzzes--among other things

By Patrick

As others have said, there is a very noticeable buzz with these monitors. In addition, they are very quiet. I realize they're not loudspeakers, but my last pair of studio monitors were smaller but put out at least 3x the sound level. I can turn these up all the way and still not be heard two rooms away. My computer speakers are much, much louder than these. One of the very few products I have bought from B&H that I would NOT recommend.

Incredible value, great sound

By Joe

I consider myself an audiophile and have two decades of studio experience and sound engineering. After reading reviews here I made the decision to give JBL a shot as I was just building a small home studio and couldn’t spend thousands of dollars on monitoring. I feel this package is worth a few thousand in sound. The speakers are beefy and the sound is crisp and seemingly flat, not overly colored. The mixes that I have that I know are warm, are warm. I’ve heard these mixes on top of the line studio monitors and am seriously impressed at how they sound on this system. You can’t beat the value you get here for this price. I plan on taking great care of these speakers and hoping for a long life, but can’t comment on their longevity until I’ve had them for several years. The sub pumps out warm low frequency. The kick sounds I’m getting are very accurate to what was recorded and how the drums sounded in the room. Go for it if you’re thinking about it!

How do these speakers sound without the subwoofer? Asking for video production.
Asked by: Andrew
The JBL 306P MkII Powered 6.5&quot; Two-Way Studio Monitors are very popular monitors that are commonly used for recording and video production without a subwoofer. The 306P MkII includes a 6.5&quot; woofer and 1&quot; tweeter, and has a frequency range of 39 Hz to 24 kHz (at -10 dB). If your audio has a lot of content in the frequency range below 39 Hz, then you may want to use a subwoofer along with the studio monitors.

Can you buy a single spearker as a center channel?
Asked by: Michael
You could use it as a center channel in a compatible surround mixing set up, but you would not be able to connect it to a home AV receiver for the purpose of watching movies.

What monitors is this compatible with?
Asked by: Bradley
This kit consists of two studio monitors, which can be used on their own for mixing in a studio or home-studio setting. It is always best to use the same model if you are mixing in surround sound. JBL LSR310S 200W Powered Subwoofer B&amp;H # JBLSR310S is the corresponding subwoofer for this JBL series of monitors.
