Most of my work is done on in proper studios with JBL M2s and B&W Diamond series monitors. The 305s obviously do not compare. However, they stand head and shoulders above anything else I've heard in the price range. I needed something to keep mixing on at home and the JBL 305P Mkii were the perfect fit. I own 3 for checking LCR mixes at home. A huge number of my ultra-geeky audio friends have 305s or 308s because they get the job done! If you can afford Genelec 8030s (another 5" monitor) then go for it. If your room can handle a bigger monitor then go for it. If you need a cheap, small and great sounding speaker, this fits the bill.

Let's start by clearing any biases etc. Usually when buying your first pair of studio monitors, you will hear a love it or hate it review for any model. If you hate it, people on forums will usually say you set them up wrong or that your room sucks. If you're through the roof with excitement over $200 speakers, it's probably because you upgraded from computer speakers or have no idea what great monitors sound like. I myself happily owned a pair of quality JBL LSR2328's for nearly 4 years. These speakers were amazingly clear and well balanced. The only reason I sold these is because even after acoustic treatment, my room is just too small for the 8" speakers. I thought moving into another set of JBL monitors with smaller speakers would be a good bet to keep some familiarity but boy was I wrong. These speakers are horrible. Lack of low end under 75-80hz is expectable for small speakers, but it seems like in it's place there's a swamp of terribly unclear lo-mid range response. On top of that, the mids are boxy and cloudy, the high end isn't overhyped but these speakers are so unclear and poorly balanced that I can't even focus on the high end. They remind me of computer speakers honestly, JBL definitely tried to make these look good to hide the fact that they're cheap and low quality monitors. Features are standard as you'd expect from the wide range of monitors available in today's market, that is the only good thing I can say about them. Save your money, buy a better pair of monitors.
