Well made product By:
These are well made and are excellent for sound
Works Great for Small Speakers By:
These worked great for my shelf speakers. They isolate them from the shelf and the two-piece configuration with angled base makes it easy to position the face of the speakers at optional slight angles up & down, or straight ahead.
Awesome quality pads that accommodate large monitors By:
Upon placing these under my Kali Audio LP-6 monitors I noticed that they were very large, both in width and length. They exceed the width and length of my particular monitors but the quality is top notch. The foam is very dense and there are several height angles you can configure with the 2 different shaped pads. These pads have a brand but the brand is not labeled on the pads, I happen to like this, they are blank and you don’t have to worry about a distracting label brand on the front of the pad. The size of the pads don’t bother me as well, if and when I plan to upgrade my monitors to a larger size speaker, these pads are large enough to accommodate up to an 8 inch monitor atleast.Overall, you pay 20 bucks and change for a very good quality pair of monitor pads that will absolutely last you years givin proper care, highly recommended.
Perfect for SVS ultra center channel. By:
Works like a charm. Also for those of you who own the SVS Ultra center channel speaker these pads budded side by side fit under the center speaker perfectly.
Nice Budget Monitor Pads By:
Does the job. I use JBL LSR308s. They are the perfect size for these monitors.
Great product! By:
Helped reduce the vibration from the bass and they don’t even look half bad doing it.
Pricey but effective. By:
I bought these for my studio monitors and they do actually make them sound better. They're a little too big but the smaller ones would've been too small. Lol! I thought about trimming them down but I just left them there way they are. Not bad
The BEST By:
worked great... for isolation of speakers.

You get what you ordered. A great product. By:
You really get what you ordered. Great product of great quality. Foam is sturdy and dense enough to hold a speaker. Fits the size of a 5" monitor. I use it with ls305p mkii (lsr305 newer revision).
Quite dense foam By:
Bought 2 brands and this is the denser of the 2 in a "squish" test.
Great quality By:
Does exactly what its suppose to :)
Awesome! By:
This is an excellent product! Isolation pads bring out the best in your studio monitors and Sound Addicted is offering them at a "shut up and take my money" price. They contacted me after sale and delivery to make sure I was satisfied. I will be buying 2 more sets. I love the color (dark charcoal / black) vs. the competition's generic grey 5🌟+
speaker pads By:
Terrific value. Improvement in sound quality from Rokit5s was MUCH better than expected. After getting these I am listening to my whole music collection over again just to experience the improvement.
Makes my speakers sound way better!! By:
Easy to use :)
Nice By:
Did the job
Beginner to music / recording By:
I’m a Beginner to music / recording, and these pad did the following. 1. I instantly noticed the sound is more vibrant and a bit clear. 2. The bass going to my neighbors and my room toned down. I have these on a glass desk with 3.5 in speakers and they are perfect. They are large enough to fit a 5-6 inch speaker ? Maybe even 7. These are sturdy and definitely look good.Also the fact that they have no logo on makes them very clean! Props to the company for not putting an ugly text on them!

Improved sound quality & imaging. By:
Purchased these to both raise the speaker several inches and angle the front up slightly due to the listening position. They are each two pieces of interlocking foam that can be stacked in different configurations or used alone depending on the desired height and angle. Using these with JBL P308 Mk2 8" monitors and they fit perfectly. Exactly what I needed for a fair price.
Good product, maybe a little big for HS7s By:
They seem to work great but they're a little big for both the On-Stage SMS6000 stands and the HS7s. It's not a deal breaker for me, just not as sleek as it is with out the pads.Otherwise they seem to perform as expected!
Lift and Separate ! By:
If it works for breasts it must be good for your speakers !
Stronger than I thought By:
When I received these, I thought they'd be too soft to hold up my 40 pound Velodyne DF-661's. I was mistaken. No sag at all, and a noticeable increase in sound quality- they seem to suck up cabinet resonance almost as well as a sandbag- without the battlefield deco effect. Not as black as depicted- they actually have a slight sparkle to them where the opened foam cells reflect light. Regardless, it meets the wife acceptance envelope, so it's not an issue. I'd buy these again- but I probably won't have to.
Pads work great for isolation of center channel. By:
I use these pads on 2nd lower shelf of a TV stand to place my center channel speaker. They both angle the speaker up to the listening position and help isolate from the glass shelf it sits on. A great product to complement your home theater.
Great product By:
These were set up with my new speakers within 15 minutes of receipt. They are sitting on a large area rug on top of hard surface floor. Used to pitch the speakers upward directing sound to viewer position the 2 piece design is perfect installed both of the thick end of the wedges to the front (driver) side of speaker the curb at the rear will keep the speakers soundly (sic) in place. This includes one pair of pads (4 wedges. Enough for 2 speakers. Speakers can be set up canted up or down, or level depending on how wedges are configured.Would buy again.
100% recommended By:
Great product. Don’t see a reason why to pay top dollars for if this one works great.

Great product By:
I wasn't sure what noise pads to purchase for my Kanto yu4 speakers,but these are the right size and give a few options how to configure your speakers.They help alot with vibration and look good as well.
Excellent Isolation Pads By:
These pads are much denser than others I have bought. They also have a perfect slope for angling the monitors up or down. Other pads that I have purchased didn't have much of a slope at all which hindered their effectiveness.I'm buying another set for the DJ rig.
Great product at a fair price By:
I bought these because my bookshelf speakers (micca pb42x) would vibrate my desk when in use. It wasn't a major issue but definitely was effecting the quality of sound. It would also be fairly annoying. Once I installed these foam blocks, the resonation of the speakers was greatly reduced. I'm not an audiophile by any means but for bookshelf speakers these are a steal at this price. This are compared to the more expensive product, auralex, and perform just as well for half the price.
Works great By:
So far the product has worked as intended. No rattles or movement from the speaker.
THEY WONT DISAPPOINT! By:
THE PADS ARE PROFESSIONAL GRADE.FIT MY EDIFIERS PERFECT! HONESTLY ENHACES APPEARANCE & SOUND!I SHOULD'VE BEEN CLUED IN BEFORE NOW!GREAT PURCHASE!
WYSIWYG By:
Just what I was expecting for my new desktop monitors! They do exactly as they are supposed to.
Get the job done By:
They’re a little large for my NHT superZeros but they work well and you can get any angle you want.
Perfect By:
Exactly what I was looking for for my bookshelf speakers. Mostly I just wanted to angle them up from better clarity.
