    Before going into the details of the review it’s important to point out that these speakers are actually designed as “near-field” monitors, not home-audio loudspeakers. I’ve seen a handful of complaints about lack of bass reponse, hollow sound etc. Near-field monitors are designed to reproduce sound with a *flat* response to give an accurate, faithful reproduction of the original audio without enhancements. And the name implies their intended usage, to be listened “near” to the speaker itself at low-to-medium volume levels, not from 10-20 feet away with room-filling sound. By contrast, “loudspeakers” are used for home audio and they typically have boosted bass and or treble response (low and high frequencies) to make the sound more punchy and colorful, especially since nearly all consumer audio sources come from highly compressed MP3 sources where much of the dynamic range of the original music track has been lost. The PreSonus Eris series are all designed to be professional near-field monitors used for making critical mixes for audio or film/video production, and in that intended usage the Eris 3.5’s shine. The response is definitely flat with a little more low-end punch than I would have expected for a monitor this size. In fact I’m outright surprised how much low-end (bass) comes out of this small-ish pair. The rear-porting coupled with being close to a wall provides ample if not a tad too much bass reinforcement. I think for future design evolution having a front-ported enclosure would most likely make the bass response a bit more accurate, however I’m totally pleased with the output they provide. One thing that sets this pair apart from the competition other than it’s accurate sound reproduction, is that they have both a high and low-end tuning knobs on the back of the primary unit (left side). All others simply have a volume or output level adjustment, but no way to actually TUNE the speakers to the environment. That’s a big plus and normally only found on larger and pricier units. Although these are monitors and not loudspeakers they do provide a ton of physical sound output, far louder than I would have expected for such a small near-field monitor. (Remember, near-fields are designed for up-close low-to-medium volume levels.) I considered several different models at this size and for the money you can’t get or expect a better pair of monitors, they rock! Mine haven’t even broken-in yet (new drivers need a break-in period to maximize their potential) and I’m already in love – it will only get better with time. As long as you clearly understand the difference between what a loudspeaker and a near-field monitor is supposed to do then you’ll be amazed at how good the Eris 3.5’s sound. Get a pair and enjoy!!! I definitely am.Read more

    (this is a review of the PreSonus Eris E3.5 model) Good: – Sound is neutral – Very accurate sound stage – The ‘acoustic tuning’ it’s called allows you to adjust for environment – aux in on front – professional look that isn’t flashy and full of leds trying to call attention to itself. Cons: – Cables you get are pretty mediocre – Cabinet build quality feels cheap A quick background. While I’m no audio engineer and I wouldn’t classify myself as an audiophile I do have several headphones in the $100-$300 range and a headphone amp and dac. I was looking to upgrade my 15 year old set of pc speakers that work but I knew I could get better. Sound wise these are called “Multimedia Studio Monitors” and by that definition these are really accurate. I also primarily have headphones with a flat response curve so these very much sound like headphones in that regard. They do have bass but it’s not going to rock the place. I’m going to skip getting in to details on audio since other reviewers have done a great job already and I agree with all of them. But if you are looking for accurate speakers for a computer just get these and you’ll be happy. I would not recommend them for a television or something where you are trying to fill an entire room with sound. The rest of this review is for people that do buy them and it’s their first pair of “studio monitors”. First off while they seemed to use excellent components for the monitors the cables they give you are pretty mediocre. I included a picture of what’s included (power cable is already plugged in and not pictured). The speaker wire that goes between the two speakers is about 6 feet and almost look like 18 AWG wire. I ended up buying 14 AWG wire but knowing what I know now I’d have just got 16 AWG and it would be a little easier to work with. I then connected them to pc using an 1/8″ to RCA jacks. The cable they give you is around 5 feet and my computer was further away so had to buy a new cable for that. Any of the 1/8″ to RCA should work fine. The power cable is a standard IEC7 non polarized connector and was maybe around 6 feet. Some setup tips. First off the full manual is not included but can be obtained from presonus.com and searching for eris e3.5 and going to downloads. This explains far more about placement and adjustment than the quick start that’s included or even what I say here. The manual explains the details but the volume on the monitor should be around the 11 o’clock to 12 o’clock position in most situations. Once you set that don’t touch the volume control on monitor, adjust the audio from the source. With the monitors set to 11 o’clock the signal coming from the computer was too hot (too loud). I would have only been able to turn the volume up to 10% and it was really loud. RCA attentuators will reduce the volume by a certain amount just before entering monitors. Oddly amazon doesn’t have them, or they were really overpriced. Search online for “Harrison Labs 12 dB RCA Line Level Attenuator” and it should be in the $30-$40 range as of March 2018. This allowed me to have a greater working range on volume. I now typically listen at around 40% level on computer but occasionally turn it up or lower it. One last thing I bought wereWellcn 26 Pcs Ferrite Cores – EMI RFI Noise Filter Clip for 3mm/ 5mm/ 7mm/ 9mm/ 13mm Diameter-Black . Place those on the power and RCA cables a couple inches before they connect to monitor. I got some occasional crackling sounds and those removed it. I also put one on the aux cable I use to connect my work laptop to these when working from home. It’s not needed on the speaker cable going between the monitors but also won’t really hurt anything. **See update below on how I’ve changed this** From where you are normally positioned there should be an equilateral triangle between you, the two monitors, and the space between the monitors. Meaning if you’re head is 3 feet from front of monitor they should also be 3 feet apart and then be turned to face you. If done right you won’t see the sides of monitors. You want your ear to be lined up with the small tweeters. Because mine are mounted on a wall a little high I have them tilted down and also on their side, which these monitors support. If you do this make sure to mirror the monitors. Meaning have the tweeters on the outside to get a larger sound stage. Once this is all setup don’t touch the equalizer or “acoustic tuning” as they call it. Just listen to music for a few days to get used to them. There also may be a little bit of break in needed. Only after a few days should you make small adjustments to the acoustic tuning options. It’s preferable to turn down a setting than boost it. If you’ve edited photos you may have noticed trying to boost the brightness on a dark image looks worse than darkening a bright image. Same idea here. So if it sounds to tinny or harsh you want to turn down the highs slightly. This reduces the highs and thus the lows will be more prominent. Initially it sounded tinny but after a couple days it either went away or I got used to it I haven’t had to touch mine. One last thing I’d recommend. Since these are fairly portable, but all my wires are routed around desk I don’t want to undo them if I decide to take monitors with me somewhere. I bought me an extra power cable and then use the 1/8″ to rca cable and speaker cable they give you and put in a small ziplock bag. Now all I have to do is disconnect everything from monitors, grab my ziplock bag of stuff and I’m ready to go. I know that was a lot of information but I hope you found this information helpful and enjoy these. (update: December 2018) So far these have been holding up well and have had no issues. In fact considering buying a second pair to have over by my workbench. Since writing above I changed my setup so now I have a Maker Hart Loop Mixer < https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01M68UK38 > that I connect my computers and to and then audio goes from there to PreSonus. It lets me adjust levels and I still have some inputs open so I’ve done things like be on a conference call but also have music playing while I’m waiting for them to start. I also got rid of the RCA Line Level Attentuators. May buy more but only -3 or -6db as the loop mixer doesn’t get as loud.Read more

    Stopped working within two days. They sounded great and worked fine up until then.. I went outside for an hour and left them on. When I came back in I heard a rustling noise upstairs. It was the passive monitor. Turn on some music and find the passive monitor doesn’t work period. Mind they were working just fine before I left the room. Unplug it from the from the interface and it still makes the sound. Plug it into my laptop, same issues. This product makes me really question if checking review ratings on amazon products even means anything because a quick google search will show that the issues i’ve posted about are common, and I likely have to ship them back for maintenance or replacement. You’ll barely find evidence of that here in the reviews.Read more

    Le utilizzo come monitor per studio di registrazione home, con tastiera yamaha tasti pesati scheda audio fucursite 2i2 e librerie suoni di FL studio Cubase e Studio one, posso dire che la resa è altamente qualitativa utilizzata in un ambiente domestico, suoni bassi, medi ed alti molto bilanciati e soprattutto ”puliti”. La possibiltà di poter modificare i bassi ed alti in uscita nel retro della cassa principale è un valore importante in più che le rivali della stessa fascia di prezzo non hanno. Molto buona la potenza, a metà volume suonano già forte e anche con suoni ensemble molto bassi e pieni non hanno mai avuto distorsioni. Comodi i comandi frontali di accensione, ingresso aux e ingresso cuffia. In dotazione cavo doppio rca rosso/bianco (uscita cassa principale) ingresso jack3,5 stereo, 8 pannetti quadrati autoadesivi (per assorbire vibrazioni) da attaccare sotto ai monitor. Assolutamente consigliate, rapporto qualità prezzo eccellente. Se vi è servita questa recensione cliccate un riscontro positivo sotto. GrazieRead more

    Ich muss zugeben, die ersten 5-10 Stunden war ich nicht 100% überzeugt von den Boxen und war am überlegen, ob ich diese umtausche und wohl oder übel doch wieder auf meine vorherigen Audioengine A5+ zurück greifen muss bzw. diese erneut kaufe für knapp 500€. Der Bass war der Grund, wieso ich nicht ganz überzeugt war. Ich habe jedoch das Gefühl nach 5-10 Stunden Einspielzeit und korrekter Positionierung der Boxen im Raum kann man für unter 100€ wohl wirklich kaum was besseres kaufen. Der Bass ist nach wie vor nicht optimal und könnte kräftiger sein aber er ist ausreichend. Die Höhen sind wirklich TOP, klar und sauber! Meine Audioengine A5+ waren zwar nochmal in allen Belangen 2 Klassen besser, besonders beim Bass aber dafür kosten diese auch 4-5mal mehr. Ich habe mich dazu entschieden die Presonus zu behalten und kann diese auch wirklich empfehlen. Wenn man wirklich einen Bass rumoren hören möchte, sollte man hier jedoch darüber im klaren sein, dass man wohl auf einen extra Bass zurück greifen muss bzw. diesen extra kaufen sollte. veoRead more

    I don’t do many reviews tbh.M, but these are something else. I purchased these and the famous Pioneer DM-40 dj speakers to compare side by side. The Pioneers apparently are more suited to edm music and the Eris3.5 best as monitor speakers for clarity. Looks – pioneers win Weight – pioneers win (does heavy mean better ? ) Branding – pioneers win Size – pioneers bigger Value – Presonus easily Clarity – Presonus easily Functions – Presonus – filters on rear for if the highs seem to high. Bass – matchs if not exceeds the pioneers There are not many reviews out their comparing the 2 but it’s safe to say, save £50 and buy these. They are thumping value. Balanced inputs and clearly produced by using r&d and not just thrown out their and a brand name thrown on them. The pioneer is 4” and the Presonus is 3.5” but don’t worry about it. Also the Presonus has a better quality tweeter and bigger which makes a difference. Overall full marks based on the cost V quality. Be realistic with what to expect from something this size and price and be prepared to be amazed.Read more

    Le pongo 1 estrella para compensar por el hype, el marketing deshonesto y las tonterias que lo comparan con altavoces de 300 euros y cosas por el estilo… Antes de comprar recomiendo conectar el cerebro y hacerle mas caso al sentido comun que a las reviews. Para empezar, no son unos monitores ni de referencia, ni de “estudio”, a no ser que se refieran a estudio de ceramica o estudio de manicura. Por mucha imaginacion que uno le eche. Son unos mini-altvoces multimedia, o altavoces desktop, o altavoces para PC… como lo quieras llamar. Con su wofer de 3.5 pulgadas no se le puede pedir gran cosa. Resonantes alrededor de los 110Hz, lo cual hace que entre los 80Hz-140Hz suenen mas bien retumbantes, faltos de definicion… Por debajo de los 80Hz los bajos te los tienes que imaginar, porque directamente son inexistentes. Asi que olvidate si los quieres para mezclar musica. Digamos que estan en la categoria de los tipicos altavoces de 25 euros del Carrefur, solo que un escalon por encima en cuanto a calidad de sonido (un escalon, no dos). Subjetivamente diria que suenan el doble de mejor, y cuestan el triple, lo cual es… razonable. Tampoco son monitores activos. Los monitores activos se les llama asi porque llevan crossovers activos, y etapas de amplificacion independientes para cada uno de los conos, o tweeters que tenga el monitor. Es decir. 2 monitores de 2 vias (wofer+tweeter) = 4 etapas de amplificacion. Los monitires de estudio son siempre monitores activos (en un 99% de los casos) por ser mas eficientes con un sonido mas claro y nitido. Los monitores pasivos llevan crossovers pasivos, y una sola etapa de amplificacion para todo el altavoz, situada antes (no despues) del crossover. Normalmente el amplificado va a parte, salvo en este caso. Los Eris 3.5 son monitores pasivos con un pequeno amplificador integrado en uno de ellos. Aptos para: – Ver videos de Youtube, juegos, peliculas. Edicion de videos… Uso general donde la calidad del audio, o una respuesta plana, no sea la principal consideracion. – Escuchar musica en una habitacion pequena a las 2 de la manana y no preocuparte si molestas a lo vecinos. – Ponertelos a ambos lados de la cama para escuchar musica relajante mientras te quedas dormido. – Instalarlos en la cocina para escuchar musica o la radio mientras fregas los platos. – Ideales donde el espacio sea muy limitado, el escritorio, una estanteria en el garaje etc… No aptos para: – Escuchar musica en el salon, o habitacion mayor de 20m2… y disfrutarla en todo su esplendor. Directamente no llegan. – Para hacer mezclas, graves inexistentes por debajo de 80Hz, y Respuesta poco plana. En resumen, unos altavoces que no son terribles por el precio que tienen.Read more

    Viele, die vor der Entscheidung stehen, welche preisgünstigen Studioboxen sie sich zulegen sollen, werden – wie ich – am Ende zwischen diesen beiden entscheiden. Vielleicht kann ich dafür ein wenig Entscheidungshilfe geben. Einsatzzweck sollte der Anschluss am PC und parallel einem Echo Dot sein. Für leise Hintergrundmusik die man bei Bedarf aber auch mal ein wenig lauter machen kann, als Ton beim Videos schauen (YouTube etc.) und beim Videoschnitt in Resolve. Ich hatte mir zuerst die Edifier Studio R1280T 2.0 bestellt und aufgebaut. An sich war ich zufrieden damit, wenn da nicht die Bässe gewesen wären. Irgendwie dröhnend, undifferenziert. Und zwar so, dass es mich tatsächlich störte – auch in niedrigen Lautstärken – obwohl ich mich nicht als audiophil bezeichnen würde. Daher habe ich noch die PreSonus ERISE3.5 bestellt, um beide im direkten Vergleich hören zu können. Die Entscheidung vorweg: Die Presonus durften bleiben, die Edifier gingen zurück. Im direkten Vergleich zeigte sich der bessere Klang der Presonus ziemlich deutlich, das war am Ende dann auch der ausschlaggebende Punkt. Pros und Cons: Edifier: + Schicke Optik + Gute Verarbeitung + Anschlussmöglichkeiten / Paralleler Anschluss (und Wiedergabe) mehrerer Tonquellen möglich + Fernbedienung mitgeliefert (wenn auch keine besonders gute) o Tonqualität: Im Großen und Ganzen in Ordnung, wenn da nicht … – … der “breiige” Bassbereich wäre Presonus: + Nicht so schick wie die Edifier, aber optisch dennoch gut / in Ordnung + Buchsen an der Front (Kopfhörer und 3,5mm Aux-In) hin und wieder ganz praktisch + Volume Knopf an der Front etwas praktischer als beim Edifier, wo man auf der rechten Seite etwas schlechter rankommt +++ Klang: deutlich brillanteres, detaillierteres Klangbild, mit trockenen und trotzdem satten Bässen – keine Fernbedienung Was einem wichtig ist, muss am Ende jeder selbst wissen, für mich war der Vorsprung der Presonus in Sachen Klang zu deutlich, um bei den – zugegeben schickeren – Edifier zu bleiben.Read more

    I don’t do many reviews tbh.M, but these are something else. I purchased these and the famous Pioneer DM-40 dj speakers to compare side by side. The Pioneers apparently are more suited to edm music and the Eris3.5 best as monitor speakers for clarity. Looks – pioneers win Weight – pioneers win (does heavy mean better ? ) Branding – pioneers win Size – pioneers bigger Value – Presonus easily Clarity – Presonus easily Functions – Presonus – filters on rear for if the highs seem to high. Bass – matchs if not exceeds the pioneers There are not many reviews out their comparing the 2 but it’s safe to say, save £50 and buy these. They are thumping value. Balanced inputs and clearly produced by using r&d and not just thrown out their and a brand name thrown on them. The pioneer is 4” and the Presonus is 3.5” but don’t worry about it. Also the Presonus has a better quality tweeter and bigger which makes a difference. Overall full marks based on the cost V quality. Be realistic with what to expect from something this size and price and be prepared to be amazed.Read more

    Le pongo 1 estrella para compensar por el hype, el marketing deshonesto y las tonterias que lo comparan con altavoces de 300 euros y cosas por el estilo… Antes de comprar recomiendo conectar el cerebro y hacerle mas caso al sentido comun que a las reviews. Para empezar, no son unos monitores ni de referencia, ni de “estudio”, a no ser que se refieran a estudio de ceramica o estudio de manicura. Por mucha imaginacion que uno le eche. Son unos mini-altvoces multimedia, o altavoces desktop, o altavoces para PC… como lo quieras llamar. Con su wofer de 3.5 pulgadas no se le puede pedir gran cosa. Resonantes alrededor de los 110Hz, lo cual hace que entre los 80Hz-140Hz suenen mas bien retumbantes, faltos de definicion… Por debajo de los 80Hz los bajos te los tienes que imaginar, porque directamente son inexistentes. Asi que olvidate si los quieres para mezclar musica. Digamos que estan en la categoria de los tipicos altavoces de 25 euros del Carrefur, solo que un escalon por encima en cuanto a calidad de sonido (un escalon, no dos). Subjetivamente diria que suenan el doble de mejor, y cuestan el triple, lo cual es… razonable. Tampoco son monitores activos. Los monitores activos se les llama asi porque llevan crossovers activos, y etapas de amplificacion independientes para cada uno de los conos, o tweeters que tenga el monitor. Es decir. 2 monitores de 2 vias (wofer+tweeter) = 4 etapas de amplificacion. Los monitires de estudio son siempre monitores activos (en un 99% de los casos) por ser mas eficientes con un sonido mas claro y nitido. Los monitores pasivos llevan crossovers pasivos, y una sola etapa de amplificacion para todo el altavoz, situada antes (no despues) del crossover. Normalmente el amplificado va a parte, salvo en este caso. Los Eris 3.5 son monitores pasivos con un pequeno amplificador integrado en uno de ellos. Aptos para: – Ver videos de Youtube, juegos, peliculas. Edicion de videos… Uso general donde la calidad del audio, o una respuesta plana, no sea la principal consideracion. – Escuchar musica en una habitacion pequena a las 2 de la manana y no preocuparte si molestas a lo vecinos. – Ponertelos a ambos lados de la cama para escuchar musica relajante mientras te quedas dormido. – Instalarlos en la cocina para escuchar musica o la radio mientras fregas los platos. – Ideales donde el espacio sea muy limitado, el escritorio, una estanteria en el garaje etc… No aptos para: – Escuchar musica en el salon, o habitacion mayor de 20m2… y disfrutarla en todo su esplendor. Directamente no llegan. – Para hacer mezclas, graves inexistentes por debajo de 80Hz, y Respuesta poco plana. En resumen, unos altavoces que no son terribles por el precio que tienen.Read more

    Viele, die vor der Entscheidung stehen, welche preisgünstigen Studioboxen sie sich zulegen sollen, werden – wie ich – am Ende zwischen diesen beiden entscheiden. Vielleicht kann ich dafür ein wenig Entscheidungshilfe geben. Einsatzzweck sollte der Anschluss am PC und parallel einem Echo Dot sein. Für leise Hintergrundmusik die man bei Bedarf aber auch mal ein wenig lauter machen kann, als Ton beim Videos schauen (YouTube etc.) und beim Videoschnitt in Resolve. Ich hatte mir zuerst die Edifier Studio R1280T 2.0 bestellt und aufgebaut. An sich war ich zufrieden damit, wenn da nicht die Bässe gewesen wären. Irgendwie dröhnend, undifferenziert. Und zwar so, dass es mich tatsächlich störte – auch in niedrigen Lautstärken – obwohl ich mich nicht als audiophil bezeichnen würde. Daher habe ich noch die PreSonus ERISE3.5 bestellt, um beide im direkten Vergleich hören zu können. Die Entscheidung vorweg: Die Presonus durften bleiben, die Edifier gingen zurück. Im direkten Vergleich zeigte sich der bessere Klang der Presonus ziemlich deutlich, das war am Ende dann auch der ausschlaggebende Punkt. Pros und Cons: Edifier: + Schicke Optik + Gute Verarbeitung + Anschlussmöglichkeiten / Paralleler Anschluss (und Wiedergabe) mehrerer Tonquellen möglich + Fernbedienung mitgeliefert (wenn auch keine besonders gute) o Tonqualität: Im Großen und Ganzen in Ordnung, wenn da nicht … – … der “breiige” Bassbereich wäre Presonus: + Nicht so schick wie die Edifier, aber optisch dennoch gut / in Ordnung + Buchsen an der Front (Kopfhörer und 3,5mm Aux-In) hin und wieder ganz praktisch + Volume Knopf an der Front etwas praktischer als beim Edifier, wo man auf der rechten Seite etwas schlechter rankommt +++ Klang: deutlich brillanteres, detaillierteres Klangbild, mit trockenen und trotzdem satten Bässen – keine Fernbedienung Was einem wichtig ist, muss am Ende jeder selbst wissen, für mich war der Vorsprung der Presonus in Sachen Klang zu deutlich, um bei den – zugegeben schickeren – Edifier zu bleiben.Read more
