nEar08 classic

8" Studio Reference Monitors

Intended as a more affordable alternative to the highly successful and award winning nEar08 eXperience studio near field reference monitors, the special edition nEar08 classic provides a good monitoring solution for musicians on a budget.

With an extended low frequency response and a good quality 8" driver, the nEar08 classic delivers a decent punch in the low-mid frequency. nEar08 classic, as the larger sibling of our popular nEar05 classic, also provide frequency response adjustment controls, allowing you to tune the sound, specific to the needs inside your studio environment. The monitors are featuring ESI's cross over control technology that is perfectly optimized and upgraded to provide perfect output level and frequency response properly matching the installed drivers and cabinet design. nEar08 classic is of course magnetically shielded for desktop operation next to your other electronic equipment without causing interference.

Unlike nEar08 eXperience, nEar08 classic have been available as a limited edition only via selected retailers and not through our regular sales & distribution network.
