    Ive been DJ'ing in the bedroom for about 6 months now and am soon going to upgrade my equipment.

    I have a question about monitors... I know they are built and used for producing music, however what I want to know is, can I use these speakers to just listen to my music normally? (ie, connect to laptop and play music from itunes through them)

    From what ive briefly read, monitors pick up glitches or bad sounds which is useful for producing, but what are they like when just listening to "normal" music?

    Thanks!

    It depends on what you want really.

    For pure listening, I prefer coloured speakers, leaning towards warm tbh.

    Well Id say their use would be maybe 50% producing, 50% listening.

    What do you mean by coloured speakers?

    Normal speakers tend to be 'coloured' in that they don't reproduce a flat sound, they essentially EQ the sound.
