그러나 가성비 매우 우수

I use these awesome speakers for DJing [radio too sometimes] & checking out music I've made or other producers have live in my studio they're tight crisp sound are pretty awesome when I krank it up they hold the bass & tones pretty well...


09/22/2016

Excellent value for money! My music has a new life


09/17/2016

nice frequency balance and sound, however the highs are a little bit on the dull side however the overall sound of these monitors are awesome.i don't regret buying them for mixing.


08/22/2016

Work on the low end.

One sounds great, the other distorts at F and F# across the spectrum of sound.

Easy to set up. like the +6db/ 0db sensitivity switch.

I completed the 20 hour recommended burn in process and am still within the 2 or so week period of usage, to allow the monitors to fill out in terms of sound reproduction.

I have noticed some weird "plastic snapping/clicking" sounds that came from the plastic side cheeks, during the intial burn in period. I traced the source of this sound buy flattening my hand on the side cheeks and applying gentle pressure to reproduce the "snap/clicking" I heard. I'm not sure if this is normal, as the monitors settle into their new environment, or if something is actually "cracking underneath the hood". I will keep an eye/ear out for this issue, but wanted to register my product and mention this asap, so this can be remedied if it posses an issue in the near future/within the warranty period (which I read is 2 years). The best way to describe this sound, is almost similar to the plastic expanding or contracting due to temperature changes?

Other than what was mentioned above, I love these studio monitors. The bass extension and definition is amazing and the stereo image is incredible. At first I thought they lacked a bit in the high end frequencies, but nope, everything is there, the sound is just so clean and open compared to my other references monitors. The Alpha 65s may be slightly attenuated in the high frequencies from what I'm use to, but this helps reduce ear fatigue. I also haven't tried the +/- 3db high freq adjustment yet, so there is room to adjust if need may be, but for now, it was pretty easy to get use to the amazing sound quality.

Well worth it if you want a flat response product which displays the spectrum of sound you need to hear when referencing.


04/20/2016

One speaker had a faulty tweeter on delivery and had to be returned immediately. Odd sound (whistle/rattle) at around 40 Hz on both speakers (F#0), ill fitting panels and trim. Not owned active monitors before so unable to comment on that. As a product...disappointing for the price.

Hi Joel,

I am sorry to hear that.
You're right to contact your dealer to return the monitor and fix this issue quickly.

Detailed, flat but musical. Best bang for your buck!


04/9/2016

Lovely monitor. Neutral sound and crisp bass. Great for the price, only issue is that I have had to replace them a couple times due to hardware issue within the monitor.


04/2/2016

thank you!


04/1/2016

Excellent speakers. Thank you!


03/20/2016

Great Sound


03/15/2016

A bargain!!! Good Job!!


02/14/2016

I'm extremely satisfied with these monitors. I love them, and if lost or broken I'll but new pair right away. And if I ever decide to upgrade, Focal products will be at the very top of my shortlist.


01/15/2016

One of the best sounding speakers in this price range hands down


01/10/2016

I would give 5 stars, but after four months one of the monitors low/mid speaker starts sounding like distorted at 80Hz.

Very good monitor. Fully satisfied with sound quality and design.


12/21/2015

I like it very much. I recommend it in home studio.


12/8/2015

Excellent monitors! I was surprised by how low these monitors actually go for their woofer size. And this is where (I think) they perform best; the lows are extremely clear and detailed. Great monitors for their price!


11/6/2015

Awesome!!! My Rough Bounce Became my Premix. I enjoy listen to music in my rest time. Beautiful sound!!!


10/13/2015

Great speakers for the little time I've had them!


09/20/2015

A great sounding monitor'detailed and controlled.


08/13/2015

Premium Sound Quality!


07/27/2015

GREAT SPEAKER


07/27/2015

AWESOME PAIR


07/27/2015

PERFECT DETAILED AND AN AMAZING PRICE POINT


07/19/2015

I'm missing the lower register for playback enjoyment; Alpha 65s are pretty good as near-field monitor speakers in their price-range, compared to the usual competition. I'm cringing at the overprice-tag for Focal's CMS Sub (subwoofer). Looks like they don't make one for the Alpha Line.


07/15/2015

Beautiful sound. 5 Stars


07/8/2015

Thanks Focal for making a such great monitor affordable for musicians and DJ's, very detailed, clarity, punchy, great stereo image...


07/7/2015

Alpha 65 is a Godsend monitor for Musicians...


07/4/2015

The Alpha 65 provides the most 'punchy' bass of this range and has a sense of great power and good clarity. I have done a comparison of the whole range on my blog:

07/1/2015

This speakers sound amazingly good!!! I really love them, the only thing that botters me is a very soft him/whitenoise coming out of the tweeters when i'm not playing audio through them.


06/22/2015

EXCELLENT NEUTRAL SOUND


06/22/2015

I love these monitors!!


05/29/2015

My purchase didn't come with the sticky rubber feet. How can I get these?

05/29/2015
Hi Doug,

Exellent


05/1/2015

After listening to the Alpha 80s in a music store in Austria I was blown away by how good these sound! Since the 80s were too big for my room I decided to buy the 65s and I am currently a happy customer. I will for sure look for other focal products after this first purchase :)


03/23/2015

VERY IMPRESSED. CLEAR AND DETAILED SOUND


03/19/2015

Bought a pair of these to sit alongside my old Celestion Ditton Studio Monitor 66s. The Ditton's are a great "musical" speaker, but perhaps lack a bit in accuracy in the upper end (not to mention they are hungry for watts). These 65's sounded great, and I could afford them. Getting used to, and enjoying, the new soundstage and transparency, and since they are still in the 20hr break-in period, am looking forward to how the sound changes. As a side note, these are some sexy looking monitors.


03/10/2015

After spending 2 months with these, I'm in love! Thank you for making such an incredible product that's also affordable for home studio owners. Quality is superb - I'm a customer for life.


03/2/2015

Awesome!


02/17/2015

Love them!!


01/24/2015

Fantastic!


01/15/2015

A must-listen-to if you`re looking at a monitor in this price range. Easy choice for me vs. the KRK Rokit`s. in muy home studio.


10/12/2014

These are so incredible! Thank you!


09/20/2014

Amazing Quality


09/19/2014

Excellent studio monitors! If anyone is interested in home studio recording, whether it be for rock, electronic music, or both, these speakers will be your one and only needed purchase. The frequency range is outstanding and the stereo imaging is so good, you feel like you can reach out and touch it. Thank you Focal!


09/3/2014

The feeling when the first note hit the speakers was truly amazing.. The sound is perfectly balanced and the amount of power is just astonishing. Keep up the good work!


07/29/2014

Truly awesome set of Monitors... Waited for over 4 months for these to come in, tried many other speakers before and these are by far the best in their price range. Untouchable, perfect for DJ monitoring and Dance/ Electronic music production. A great investment, well done Focal.
