works great for half the price By:
item was delivered early and works perfectly. I have 7" speakers on them with about 2 extra inches
Nice pads isolate sound and keeps monitoring in the monitors By:
Nice foam pads keep my monitors from walking and isolated the sound from resonating through your desk or shelf. You can trim them if you want with scissors to fit smaller monitors. Works great.
Fair price and effective solution By:
They fulfill their product claim. This is a simple design and solution that provides an economical, functional and aesthetically pleasing enhancement. I was previously using sections of 5/8” top shelf carpet pad. My wife now complains less about my audio set up and speaker array.Now mfr needs to produce a size to serve as a layer of additional cushioning for underneath my turntable (12” X 16”).
great isolation pads By:
bought these for my new klipsch sixes monitors. solid foam construction, does the job very well. slight angle helps point the speakers upwards to ear-level as well.
Works as intended By:
Great Product
As expected By:
They work well and as expected.
Pads work as well as more expensive ones By:
these are exactly as described and work very well at isolating monitors from turntable platter and tonearm
Works great! By:
Easy to put up, came quickly!
High quality foam & positive effect on sound of monitors By:
First pair of isolation pads I've ever owned so this is not in comparison to anything but the quality of the foam is very firm and seems high quality.Putting my monitors on the pads makes a considerable difference in the quality of sound. I'm happy with the purchase & would purchase them again for sure.
Excellent pads By:
Perfect isolation pads for my center channel.

Expensive not always a good thing. THIS affordable isolation Foam is IT... By:
So this was my last hope, I originally bought a Pyle which cost me $37 for one. and the quality was just not even close. Yes it has the foam METAL then Rubber for better isolation but the quality is a joke. So expensive is not always the best... glad i found that one i want.
EXCELLENT By:
Great product, great price shipped very well I purchased this for a pair of Presonus E3 .5 speakers. Good fit. Foam is great… Sturdy foam very very good customer service.
great! By:
perfect size and sound
These work! By:
Exactly what I needed! These are perfect for small to midsize monitors. Sound is clearer but now I realize just how much I need a sub!
Great product! By:
I love the little paper that comes with it showing all the different ways you can use these isolation pads. I bought them to use with the PreSonus Eris 3.5" monitors and they're a great fit. Love it!
Really nice and thick studio monitor stands. By:
These stands fit my Presonus E-4.5 Studio monitors like a glove. Really like the look of them and keep my monitors from rumbling and rocking across the wooden desk. I'm really happy with this purchase. Thank you,Gary
No complaints at all By:
These pads are cut very precisely and look nice. They do a good job of isolation and elevation for a very reasonable price.
Love these for my small reference monitors By:
These work great with the small monitors I purchased. Perfect size and density.
Cost effective solution to aim bookshelves By:
Good solution to raise or aim up down your speakers. The foam seems to be good isolation too for my bookshelves. Can't beat the price.
Heard the difference right away By:
I have a BIC FH6-LCR and it was just sitting in the TV stand. It's capable of doing 50hz, however, it was resonating through the cabinet. I would listen at 120hz instead. After adding these pads, the resonance was noticeably gone pretty much right way (watching some dude on CNN with a deep voice really pointed it out.) I set the crossover back down to 60hz and it really seems to sound the way its supposed to now.I've had experience with sound isolation in the past. Each of my SSF-7000 front speakers sit on home made isolation pads (just boards with long screws at each corner that keep it just above the carpet). I've always known my center channel had this issue but it wasn't until actually getting it on some proper pads that I realized how bad the issue actually was.It's hard to explain the sound difference. It's like I'm no longer listening to the center channel in a bucket? I don't know. It's just so much more clear in the 120hz-60hz range.

Good Pads for Small Monitors By:
These isolation pads are good for small monitors or subs under 30 lbs..
Works to angle a center channel By:
I used two of these angled pads to decouple and slightly angle my center channel so that it is now below the TV but pointing to the listening level. They worked like a charm and the multiple configuration options were great! Very high quality foam as well.
Great product, Adfordable price! By:
Great product. Does exactly what it is made to do. Would recommend these to anyone who needs isolation for their monitors!
High quality By:
It really works absorbing vibrations. Not a cheap material that flattens from the weight of speakers. Glad I got them.
amazing pads, they work great and don't collapse with heavy speakers (JBL308) By:
Really awesome speaker pads, great foam density that won't collapse with heavy speakers. I use them with JBL 308's and they also hold Yamaha HS-8 with not a problem. They isolate like no other pads I've seen (comparable to Auralex), and they are super affordable. A must for truly isolating speakers from vibrations.
Glen Fricker Approved By:
Good quality and a lot cheaper than the competition
Great product! Absolutely! By:
Excellent Product and price!I bought these to use with a pair of Yamaha HS8 ref. monitors I had recently purchased for my home studio.They look and feel well made, good foam. Less expensive than the name brands and they work just as well!I would buy again and recommend to others for sure.Sound Addicted - Studio Monitor Isolation Pads suitable for 6.5'', 7'' and 8'' Inch Large Speakers | Reduce Vibrations and Fits most Stands - Pair | SMPad 8
32 years in the recording business they work great, but what do I know By:
I like that I can set my monitors flat or at an angle.I finally replaced some I had for about 12 years after moving to a new location.
Great Product By:
I've had a home studio for some time now, these pads are extremely durable and feel great to the touch. The added slice that lets you angle the speaker is also an awesome feature. Here is my video review of the pads, again, thanks sound addicted!

These wont fit KRK6 By:
Get a bigger size for KRK 6. They still work I just bought the wrong size. Great product.
Perfect for monitors... By:
Delivered on time and perfect fit for my studio monitors. Sound feels firm with these.
Makes a difference By:
Definitely notice a difference from being directly on the desk.
Worked Perfectly By:
Theses are simple pieces of cut foam that have a certain density, to be able to hold a speaker off the floor. The sound improvement was immediately noticeable, especially the bass which seemed better dispersed. They fit perfectly under a Sonos Play5 in the vertical position and turned 180 degrees. Well worth it for the sound improvement.
Excellent Quality Isolation Pads By:
These are exactly what I was looking for. They do exactly as expected. I have my monitors on stands and the pads absorb the vibration from being transferred to my wood floors. I am very happy with this product.
Fit my M-Audio AV40 speakers By:
Nicely separates my speakers from my wooden desktop. Great size for my M-Audio AV40 speakers.
perfect size for household use of digital piano By:
The speakers have worked out perfectly with my new digital piano and the additional purchase of two 1/4" TRS to 1/4" TRS cables.
Works as advertised By:
Works as advertised
Get's the job done By:
I just set up the monitors with the pads underneath and it fixed the sound problems I was having. No more rattle on my desk or unwanted sound reflection.
Great fit for my JBL LSR305 By:
Great fit, nice angle to them, a nice size for my 5 inch monitors that dont have any extra foam, probably great for 6 inch monitors too
