I gotta say, Previous reveiwers are correct about these making my monitors sound so much better!

It was like night and day! I put on some music for reference, listened for a bit and then picked up my monitors and put them on the pads. INSTANT IMPROVEMENT of sound! The little woman came even came into the room to see what I had done to make it sound so good all of the sudden!

I went back and retracked some earlier demos I hade recorded and they came out so much more better now that I can hear some of the differences!

I also listen to a lot of music trying to learn parts as well, I found these pads made my sound in the monitors so much more clearer that I was able to pick out Bass and Guitar notes that I just was not hearing before!

You have some good/decent or great Studio monitors? You are NOT getting your moneys worth until you get them on some isolation pads!

I like the fact that these isolation pads provide ways to angle the monitor speakers up, down, or level. But while they do provide some noticeable sound isolation, they don't truly eliminate vibrations from my work surface, even at moderate volumes.

        I hated to spend this much money for "some foam", but I could not believe the difference in my monitors! Everything seems so much clearer and defined. Had to totally remix my latest project, LOL.

                Comments about Auralex MoPad Monitor Isolation Pads:

                I am a musician, but have only been producing music for approximately two years. I HIGHLY recommend these isolation pads to ANYONE who wants a clearer, more accurate depiction of their music. I was weary that I would hear a difference after applying these to my monitor setup. I noticed the difference IMMEDIATELY. I was shocked at how much these actually helped to improve the way I heard my music. I noticed tighter bass, punchier drums, and discovered that I could hear elements of a song or a mix much clearer than previously. These are essential for any producer's setup and I highly recommend them to anyone who may not produce music but has a nice speaker or hifi setup. For this price, the improvement is unbeatable! If you value being able to hear an accurate depiction of your music, or mix you might be working on, as much as I do, you will not be disappointed.

                The price sucks, but these do exactly what they're designed to do. No doubts about that.
                Yup, does exactly what it's supposed to do. Great stuff.
                It's foam...for a price. So ya know, it's great, but still.

                Comments about Auralex MoPad Monitor Isolation Pads:

                I'm now a believer. I added some supplimentary smaller monitors to my mixing setup, and had them directly on my desk. The resonance was awful. So I sprang for the Mopads, and as soon as I tried them on the smaller monitors I was amazed! They sounded like completely different speakers altogether. In the end I rearranged the foam pieced and used the main supports for my large monitors and the extra wedges for the smaller pair. The angles they offer are perfect, and I'm still in awe of the clearity they revealed in my system even though my mains were already on isolation stands.

                      Comments about Auralex MoPad Monitor Isolation Pads:

                      I was deliberating getting new monitors because my KRK Rokit 5s just sounded too boomy for my 10' x 10' studio. They were resting on my workstation desk adjacent to my computer monitor. After reading other reviews that the Rokits aren't that boomy, I decided to give these a try. I wish I'd bought them with the monitors. The sound really has improved immensely, much tighter and more neutral bass - I couldn't be happier with the results.
                      Additionally, I stacked two high under each monitor to raise the monitors to a better listening level; an added bonus if your monitors are not too wide.
                      Considering how much time I spend listening to these, this purchase was a no-brainer.

                                        The MoPad's create great Isolation you can tell a different for sure! You also have to take in the fact how your room is setup, such as speakers not too close to walls also helps with tone and EQ.
                                        I have mine set on the platform spaces of my Argosy Dual 15-803 they fit perfect and raises the speaker about 2" speaker cone and tweeter right where they need to be.
                                        Great product if you are serious about what you do you will need these!

                                            I use in my desk, with some Tannoy Reveal 502 monitors. It's not a thing water becoming wine, but it's a small and reasonably cheap solution for monitor positioning.

                                                  Dang, I sound good!
                                                  Well ... maybe not, but with the MoPad Monitor Isolation Pads my recordings sound much better than without. Without understanding all the science behind it, it is much easier to direct my attention to individual tracks, tones and EQ's. This makes the recording/mixdown process faster and more enjoyable due to less need for tweaking. This is by far the least expensive purchase with the greatest impact that I have made for my hobby recording studio.
                                                  Note: Previously I had my monitors, Alesis Prolinear 720's, sitting directly on a set of tower stereo speakers at the correct height and pointed correctly. The only change made was the addition of the MoPads.

                                                    This is my second set of MoPads. I'm adding a pair of not-so-flat speakers to my home studio for use as a backup for mix checking. My mixing desk is a bit cramped with my main monitors, so I've decided to place the second set on top of the first. The MoPads are light but effective and the extra wedge pads allow me to aim the new speakers to the correct elevation and they isolate the new speakers from my mains.
