Auralex MoPADs Studio Monitor Foam Stands Reviews
Great addition to the studio. The mopads make it easier to judge the bottom end within a mix. Such a simple solution for a very fair price!
The mopads are a simple & cost effective acoustic solution for your studio monitors.
They really do make a difference by isolating them from the resting surface and tightening up the bass end as well.
A must for anyone who is setting up their home studio.
James, I've just purchased AV40s. Sound seems great on the solid desk I use. However, I'm interested improving the quality so did the MoPads fit ok?
Before I purchased the MoPads my Studiophile AV40\'s were resting on wood and the resonance was awful. Ruining what i was hearing.
I got the MoPads and the sound is very very clear. I use them in my home studio and creating mixes is a lot better now.
The price? Hmm...worth it i would say because i don\'t feel cheated.
cheap cardboard egg boxes filled with expanding foam do exactly the same job...
but to be fair they do exactly what they are marketed as.
I\'m what you\'d call an amateur when it comes to recording. Songwriter who\'s doing his best to make decent demos maybe, so I\'m probably not the best authority on this however...
I thought, christ a bit of foam, £40 (at the time)!!! Not a chance!
But the bass freq. feedback you get from your monitors sat on a desk without these things is horrendous!
Well worth the money. Cleans up your mix to get accurate results.
Word about Dolphin service, second to none. First time buyers, delivery is slightly pricey but the customer service is sublime! well worth it. I\'ve made about a dozen purchases and only had one problem which was resolved within 24 hours!
So I bought into all the hype and got a pair of these to isolate my new monitors from my desk. (No room for stands in my student accommodation)
They do an excellent job at isolating the monitor, being curious I used some of the foam that came with the monitors to compare and there is a fair amount of difference between the foam!
I would give these 10, but I feel they are slightly over priced.
These are good for what they are, and they do help to reduce boomy bass from your monitors.
Using actual speaker stands would sound slightly better, but these are cheaper. They can do a good job as long as your monitors are moved away from the walls and corners.
The MoPad\\\'s are very good in my opinion, they give insulate the speakers very good. I have tested it on my wood table and it gives out a not very nice punchy sound. These have really helped me to actually get a good listen to the music. All in all there very good and a need for speakers/monitors.
I bought these along with my LSR4328P monitor speakers. While I normally use the speakers on stands (see my review for the LSR4328P) there are times when you want to put them on some other surface, and these Auralex pads do a great job of isolating them totally from vibrating other things around them. They do make a real difference, and when you are mixing, it is important that you are monitoring well. A big plus for me is the way you can choose different angles for the speakers - from level to two different angles facing up, and another two facing down. Perfect!
Initially I bought a copied version of the Mopad to save money but they were rubbish. My mate had the real thing and they really made a difference, so I ate humble pie and coughed up for the real thing..
Wow...! These made my speakers sound tighter instantly and really brought out the best in my room setup.
If you spent the money on decent speakers you need these!
...and i don't give 10s. I will go as far as saying, you don't have monitors until you have them properly decoupled from the surface on which they stand.
These really have brought things in to focus, its made hearing whats going on simpler. Superb value for money
I noticed an immediate performance boost in my monitors when using these isolation pads, the sound was much more solid and detailed. Before i had them resting on a desk table and the sound was boomy and forced,the table was resonating a lot.
These pads arent just normal foam youd expect in packaging. its more denser and a solid construction, proper acoustic foam. It comes in a neat little package which includes 4 pads (2 per monitor) to float your monitoring system, and also comes with 4 wedges which you can put on top of the other ones in order to give you different angles to float your monitoring system at (8 degrees up,0 degrees flat, etc)
I use alesis active m1 mk2's in a project studio with these wedges underneath and one port per speaker plugged and i must say i am amazed. the pads really work and 'do what they say on the tin'
'nearly 40 quid on some foam?!' i hear you ask. Just make the purchase and see for yourself. The amount of resonance it reduces is incredible and believe it or not reduces that muddyness and over boomy lows from your mix
I had been reading up on these pads for quite some time and finally decided to wipe the dust from my wallet.
I was initially really concerned about spend £40 on some foam to rest my monitors on ,but boy was it worth it.
I noticed the difference in my monitors performance instantly. The bass is indeed far more direct than previously and the overall sound is much crisper.
I was also pleased at the fact the pads had raised the monitors to the perfect height in comparison to before.
The fact that you can also position the monitors at various angles may come in handy in the future.
I am so pleased with this product that I may invest in another set for isolation of various pieces of hardware.
Thank you very much Auralex and Dolphin Music !
I'll be spreading the good word.
