Listening to music on these speakers is thrilling. I’ve been waiting 20 years to hear big monitors sound like this.
Producer/Artist (Kendrick Lamar, Thundercat, Cartoon Network)
Ocean Way monitors sound great in my studio and when I finished a song, I listened in my car and it was perfect. Now I know what I’m hearing in the studio is what I’m going to get wherever it is played.
