abunda_amazon_reviews Upon placing these under my Kali Audio LP-6 monitors I noticed that they were very large, both in width and length. They exceed the width and length of my particular monitors but the quality is top notch. The foam is very dense and there are several height angles you can configure with the 2 different shaped pads. These pads have a brand but the brand is not labeled on the pads, I happen to like this, they are blank and you don’t have to worry about a distracting label brand on the front of the pad. The size of the pads don’t bother me as well, if and when I plan to upgrade my monitors to a larger size speaker, these pads are large enough to accommodate up to an 8 inch monitor atleast. Overall, you pay 20 bucks and change for a very good quality pair of monitor pads that will absolutely last you years givin proper care, highly recommended.;;Reviewed in the United States on February 20, 2019;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Awesome quality pads that accommodate large monitors;;AL Arsenault;;;I'm gonna review these Monitor pads like it's 1999, so sit back and chill for a moment while I reminisce. So I mix tracks for a living...I have like 10 million views just on YouTube from the tracks I've mixed with these bad boys (Yamaha HS8's). Between that and the demos I've recorded for professional song writers, the master tracks I've mixed for myself and others I just know how these speakers sound, and how a mix will translate into other speakers and listening environments. What the hell even is a "demo" anymore? Everything has gotten so good for home studio owners that if you're really good...it is a master. Hell, some "home studio" mixes sound better than ones that come out of major studios. Some major records ARE done with a blend or tracks recorded at home and major studios etc. My point is that home recording stuff has come a long ass way and many times sounds better than the major records heard back in the day. Don't get me wrong, they made some great tracks back in the day too. Queens Bohemian Rhapsody was done on tape and they bounced those vocal parts so many times that they say the tape went CLEAR. That mix turned out amazing and I doubt they had their monitors on pads, but I could be wrong. So it's not always the equipment but the artist and talent using it. That has always been my perspective so for a long time I was hell bent on NOT popping for 30 bucks worth of foam. I just wasn't persuaded that they were the missing secret ingredient in my Grammy Award winning mixes. I've always been a cowboy for the most part and I've relied on my talents, ear, and instincts to get a song done with whatever I had. I just did my best and it usually turned out. I've always done really well with very little, so I have always thought of these kinds of things as somewhat wasteful and costly accessories. Nylons and a wire hanger will get you a popper stopper that's just as good as the ones they sell for 30-50 bucks or more right? In fact, I think they made their own popper stoppers for the Michael Jackson "We are the world" record they made with everyone back in the day. Those are expensive AKG C-12 mics too. My point is...put your money into the stuff that really matters and don't let stuff like this eat into your budget too much if you still need other things that will help your mixes more. Sure they're only 30 bucks but I know how this stuff can add up. Same thing with foam on your walls. Put up moving blankets etc. and spend your hard earned money on the stuff that really makes the most difference in your musical process, like a good Mic and pre....then a powerful Daw like Logic pro X....Pro tools...Cubase...Studio One...Reaper etc. and fill it with Waves and UAD plugs. If you're not there yet, just use folded towels under your monitors in the mean time if you're strapped, and when you get the important stuff covered, THEN move into this kind of stuff. But Just remember, some of the best recordings are done in cabins, and, just crazy places with weird acoustics and sounds. Speaking of which, as a side note, Billie Eilish's brother Finneas who produced all of her tracks talked about how they recorded all of their stuff on an Apollo rack system in her small bedroom with an Audio Technica 2020 for "Ocean Eye's" and over the course of time he got so used to recording and mixing with the sound of that small room that it really screwed with him when they recorded in some big million dollar studios with different sounding environments. It was almost like it was the wrong template, or soundscape for him to create songs in his mind. He was used to the quirks of the room he recorded in. This happened with Dave Grohl too. He bought that Neve board from Sound City when they went out of business because SO MANY amazing records were made on it, and when they put that board in his private studio, it DIDN'T SOUND THE SAME. Sure it sounded ok...but the magic was gone IMHO. I was really disappointed. My point is you get used to a certain sound when you mix on your own stuff in your own environment. And without using any pads I've done that. I've seen monitor pads in more than a few high dollar studios, not to mention in some stuck up studio owners places and I figured they worked, but I think I placed them somewhere along the lines of putting an egg crate mattress cover on your closet walls for a vocal booth. Almost like a gimmick, but not quite. I just figured if your mixes suck it's not because you don't have these pads. They certainly make you look cool, but I kinda pride myself on not going caring what people think, and I hate the expensive accessories and gimmicks people push on audio people so maybe that's why I didn't get them for a long time. I just figured they weren't going to make that horrible song you recorded with audacity and nasty plug ins sound amazing. But on the positive side, if you have some good stuff rolling in your studio to create, capture, and mix your tracks at a high level, then feel free to get these pads because they do help. There are no doubt many great artists and engineers who will genuinely find these pads helpful for their mixes. I immediately noticed the music became clearer and each instrument became more isolated from each other and sat in it's own space in the mix better, as opposed to vibrating through the desk etc which muddys up or interferes with the sound, even with certain frequencies that seem imperceptible until you notice they're gone. These pads seemed to clean up the stereo field and allow for a better sound stage and articulation too. It's pretty surprising honestly. I didn't expect them to help this much. You can adjust these pads a few ways in order to set your monitors at the perfect listening height and angle and that's cool. I'm going to keep making small adjustments over the course of time until i find exactly what works best for me, but even that slight 1.5 to 2 inch lift has changed the sweet spot and how I listen to them...which is good...and bad. Good in that it's cleaner, but with the changes it'll take me some time to settle into them. They thump tighter and better on the low end than before and the bass doesn't create any dissonance or vibrations that compete with the song, or anything that gets in the way of actually hearing your mix. That gives a cleaner sound, and you end up with a cleaner mix. When you don't have all of that mud and buzzing in the sound, it makes room in the mid range and top end to shine through so things don't get lost in the process. It almost sounds like you're listening in a sound proofed room to some respect. I'll have to keep looking into more of this stuff. It's fascinating to me. I would totally do it again and not think twice about it. In fact I wouldn't mix without them now....so that should say something. 30 bucks won't make or break you, but it does seem stupidly steep for foam. But I guess we've all spent more than 30 bucks on overpriced crap before right? Apple anyone? And it's not that they aren't great products, it's just the price for what you're getting seems wrong, and that's how this foam feels. You almost feel like a sucker for buying them. Like they owe me a sandwich or something due to the price. Lol. They should be like 15 bucks, and that's why I pushed back on them for so long. But now that the pain is over and I pulled the band-aid off.....I won't have to do it again. So in the end...Great product, does what it says...no regrets. Don't expect miracles, you still have to know how to mix a track, but having sound pads is something I wouldn't do without after experiencing them and gives you that little extra something. I should have done it a long time ago and I think you'll feel the same way. Wishing you the best of luck with your tracks. Music on.;;Reviewed in the United States on June 1, 2020;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Works better than I thought.;;TheGambler;;;Two points. One, isolation pads are a big, big deal for getting the best quality sound from your speakers. And two, in my experience is that the Studio Monitor Isolation Pads from Vocalbeat are much better than their competitors...I'd say roughly 25% better in terms of producing less muddied/controlled bass as well as more clear, detailed high frequencies. All speakers cabinets vibrate, of course, and are significantly influenced by the material they're sitting on, such as wood or carpet. Isolation pads reduce that negative effect substantially, if not almost completely. If you've never used spiked speaker stands or isolation pads, you'll be amazed at how much difference they make. But dollar for dollar I think isolation pads do more than anything else to enhance the sound and musicality of your speakers. I say this as someone who has been around home stereo system for decades, and who uses isolation pads on 6 of my 9 different sets of speakers. If you can, get isolation pads for your speakers, and pay a dollar or two more to get them from Studio Monitor/Vocalbeat.;;Reviewed in the United States on October 14, 2018;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;These are the best;;Leemore;;;These pads are supporting 19 pound monitors and are very stable and secure. Ive used cheaper foam before and there was soft spots and the speakers would sag or tilt into the foam. These do not have that issue nor do I see them ever wearing out. I also like that there is no logo on the foam. My only complaint is on 1 of the 4 pieces of foam there are a few BB sized air occlusions in the foam, they don't effect performance in any way or even the looks under normal use but it does look a touch sloppy when you look at the naked foam.;;Reviewed in the United States on December 1, 2018;;4.0 out of 5 stars;;Great quality for the price.;;en sabbah nur;;;As I predicted, these studio monitor isolation pads solved my installation needs. My JBL ES30 3-way bookshelf speakers are located on top of the cabinets adjacent to the main desk in my image processing studio. I always felt that they were too low and the bass frequencies sometimes sounded muddled. The VocalBeat monitor isolation pads raised the monitors just enough to improve the delivery of the sound. Also, now that the speakers are tilted upward slightly, the high frequency range of music playback is more detailed and direct to my ears. The isolation feature of the foam pads also improved the bass response by stopping the absorption of the speaker output into the wooden cabinets the speakers are currently positioned on. The difference was noticed immediately after installation. At $26.00 USD these are worth every penny. Sometime in life, the simplest solutions can make a significant impact. I highly recommend this product.;;Reviewed in the United States on May 22, 2019;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Perfect Solution for My Monitors;;John R Aldrich

Great quality for the price.
These pads are supporting 19 pound monitors and are very stable and secure. Ive used cheaper foam before and there was soft spots and the speakers would sag or tilt into the foam. These do not have that issue nor do I see them ever wearing out. I also like that there is no logo on the foam. My only complaint is on 1 of the 4 pieces of foam there are a few BB sized air occlusions in the foam, they don't effect performance in any way or even the looks under normal use but it does look a touch sloppy when you look at the naked foam.

Perfect Solution for My Monitors
As I predicted, these studio monitor isolation pads solved my installation needs. My JBL ES30 3-way bookshelf speakers are located on top of the cabinets adjacent to the main desk in my image processing studio. I always felt that they were too low and the bass frequencies sometimes sounded muddled. The VocalBeat monitor isolation pads raised the monitors just enough to improve the delivery of the sound. Also, now that the speakers are tilted upward slightly, the high frequency range of music playback is more detailed and direct to my ears. The isolation feature of the foam pads also improved the bass response by stopping the absorption of the speaker output into the wooden cabinets the speakers are currently positioned on. The difference was noticed immediately after installation. At $26.00 USD these are worth every penny. Sometime in life, the simplest solutions can make a significant impact. I highly recommend this product.

Awesome quality pads that accommodate large monitors
Upon placing these under my Kali Audio LP-6 monitors I noticed that they were very large, both in width and length. They exceed the width and length of my particular monitors but the quality is top notch. The foam is very dense and there are several height angles you can configure with the 2 different shaped pads. These pads have a brand but the brand is not labeled on the pads, I happen to like this, they are blank and you don’t have to worry about a distracting label brand on the front of the pad. The size of the pads don’t bother me as well, if and when I plan to upgrade my monitors to a larger size speaker, these pads are large enough to accommodate up to an 8 inch monitor atleast. Overall, you pay 20 bucks and change for a very good quality pair of monitor pads that will absolutely last you years givin proper care, highly recommended.

Works better than I thought.
I'm gonna review these Monitor pads like it's 1999, so sit back and chill for a moment while I reminisce. So I mix tracks for a living...I have like 10 million views just on YouTube from the tracks I've mixed with these bad boys (Yamaha HS8's). Between that and the demos I've recorded for professional song writers, the master tracks I've mixed for myself and others I just know how these speakers sound, and how a mix will translate into other speakers and listening environments. What the hell even is a "demo" anymore? Everything has gotten so good for home studio owners that if you're really good...it is a master. Hell, some "home studio" mixes sound better than ones that come out of major studios. Some major records ARE done with a blend or tracks recorded at home and major studios etc. My point is that home recording stuff has come a long ass way and many times sounds better than the major records heard back in the day. Don't get me wrong, they made some great tracks back in the day too. Queens Bohemian Rhapsody was done on tape and they bounced those vocal parts so many times that they say the tape went CLEAR. That mix turned out amazing and I doubt they had their monitors on pads, but I could be wrong. So it's not always the equipment but the artist and talent using it. That has always been my perspective so for a long time I was hell bent on NOT popping for 30 bucks worth of foam. I just wasn't persuaded that they were the missing secret ingredient in my Grammy Award winning mixes. I've always been a cowboy for the most part and I've relied on my talents, ear, and instincts to get a song done with whatever I had. I just did my best and it usually turned out. I've always done really well with very little, so I have always thought of these kinds of things as somewhat wasteful and costly accessories. Nylons and a wire hanger will get you a popper stopper that's just as good as the ones they sell for 30-50 bucks or more right? In fact, I think they made their own popper stoppers for the Michael Jackson "We are the world" record they made with everyone back in the day. Those are expensive AKG C-12 mics too. My point is...put your money into the stuff that really matters and don't let stuff like this eat into your budget too much if you still need other things that will help your mixes more. Sure they're only 30 bucks but I know how this stuff can add up. Same thing with foam on your walls. Put up moving blankets etc. and spend your hard earned money on the stuff that really makes the most difference in your musical process, like a good Mic and pre....then a powerful Daw like Logic pro X....Pro tools...Cubase...Studio One...Reaper etc. and fill it with Waves and UAD plugs. If you're not there yet, just use folded towels under your monitors in the mean time if you're strapped, and when you get the important stuff covered, THEN move into this kind of stuff. But Just remember, some of the best recordings are done in cabins, and, just crazy places with weird acoustics and sounds. Speaking of which, as a side note, Billie Eilish's brother Finneas who produced all of her tracks talked about how they recorded all of their stuff on an Apollo rack system in her small bedroom with an Audio Technica 2020 for "Ocean Eye's" and over the course of time he got so used to recording and mixing with the sound of that small room that it really screwed with him when they recorded in some big million dollar studios with different sounding environments. It was almost like it was the wrong template, or soundscape for him to create songs in his mind. He was used to the quirks of the room he recorded in. This happened with Dave Grohl too. He bought that Neve board from Sound City when they went out of business because SO MANY amazing records were made on it, and when they put that board in his private studio, it DIDN'T SOUND THE SAME. Sure it sounded ok...but the magic was gone IMHO. I was really disappointed. My point is you get used to a certain sound when you mix on your own stuff in your own environment. And without using any pads I've done that. I've seen monitor pads in more than a few high dollar studios, not to mention in some stuck up studio owners places and I figured they worked, but I think I placed them somewhere along the lines of putting an egg crate mattress cover on your closet walls for a vocal booth. Almost like a gimmick, but not quite. I just figured if your mixes suck it's not because you don't have these pads. They certainly make you look cool, but I kinda pride myself on not going caring what people think, and I hate the expensive accessories and gimmicks people push on audio people so maybe that's why I didn't get them for a long time. I just figured they weren't going to make that horrible song you recorded with audacity and nasty plug ins sound amazing. But on the positive side, if you have some good stuff rolling in your studio to create, capture, and mix your tracks at a high level, then feel free to get these pads because they do help. There are no doubt many great artists and engineers who will genuinely find these pads helpful for their mixes. I immediately noticed the music became clearer and each instrument became more isolated from each other and sat in it's own space in the mix better, as opposed to vibrating through the desk etc which muddys up or interferes with the sound, even with certain frequencies that seem imperceptible until you notice they're gone. These pads seemed to clean up the stereo field and allow for a better sound stage and articulation too. It's pretty surprising honestly. I didn't expect them to help this much. You can adjust these pads a few ways in order to set your monitors at the perfect listening height and angle and that's cool. I'm going to keep making small adjustments over the course of time until i find exactly what works best for me, but even that slight 1.5 to 2 inch lift has changed the sweet spot and how I listen to them...which is good...and bad. Good in that it's cleaner, but with the changes it'll take me some time to settle into them. They thump tighter and better on the low end than before and the bass doesn't create any dissonance or vibrations that compete with the song, or anything that gets in the way of actually hearing your mix. That gives a cleaner sound, and you end up with a cleaner mix. When you don't have all of that mud and buzzing in the sound, it makes room in the mid range and top end to shine through so things don't get lost in the process. It almost sounds like you're listening in a sound proofed room to some respect. I'll have to keep looking into more of this stuff. It's fascinating to me. I would totally do it again and not think twice about it. In fact I wouldn't mix without them now....so that should say something. 30 bucks won't make or break you, but it does seem stupidly steep for foam. But I guess we've all spent more than 30 bucks on overpriced crap before right? Apple anyone? And it's not that they aren't great products, it's just the price for what you're getting seems wrong, and that's how this foam feels. You almost feel like a sucker for buying them. Like they owe me a sandwich or something due to the price. Lol. They should be like 15 bucks, and that's why I pushed back on them for so long. But now that the pain is over and I pulled the band-aid off.....I won't have to do it again. So in the end...Great product, does what it says...no regrets. Don't expect miracles, you still have to know how to mix a track, but having sound pads is something I wouldn't do without after experiencing them and gives you that little extra something. I should have done it a long time ago and I think you'll feel the same way. Wishing you the best of luck with your tracks. Music on.

These are the best
Two points. One, isolation pads are a big, big deal for getting the best quality sound from your speakers. And two, in my experience is that the Studio Monitor Isolation Pads from Vocalbeat are much better than their competitors...I'd say roughly 25% better in terms of producing less muddied/controlled bass as well as more clear, detailed high frequencies. All speakers cabinets vibrate, of course, and are significantly influenced by the material they're sitting on, such as wood or carpet. Isolation pads reduce that negative effect substantially, if not almost completely. If you've never used spiked speaker stands or isolation pads, you'll be amazed at how much difference they make. But dollar for dollar I think isolation pads do more than anything else to enhance the sound and musicality of your speakers. I say this as someone who has been around home stereo system for decades, and who uses isolation pads on 6 of my 9 different sets of speakers. If you can, get isolation pads for your speakers, and pay a dollar or two more to get them from Studio Monitor/Vocalbeat.
