I've used the 305s for an offsite art installation, they are great value, I would use them againWhen I read the thread title, I thought well, JBLs for sure, but no reason to post because someone else has surely posted already. So anyway... glad to be correct and just another vote for JBLs. I think whatever your budget is, JBL tends to win that price range. The 305, 306 are great for the price, and we have a couple pairs of 308 that I think are fantastic.
Yamaha now has HS5, HS7, and HS8. In my home studio, I have the HS5s with the HS8S subwoofer, and it works very well. My only complaint is that my HS5s can't sit too close to the iMac or there is interference.Yamaha HS80m (with accoutic treatment). I don't know the newer version, but I think it is discontinue.

My answer is generic: if possible, I'd suggest doing something to improve the acoustics. Can you describe your room and the issues?
There are simple things you can do to improve the situation - but bear in mind that you can also do more harm than good by listening to 99% of the advice you'll get on the Internet.
Well, what doesn't sound right? Too much reverb, muddy... ?It's a small bedroom with a window and a pretty low ceiling. Maybe it will *fare* ok, but I'm new to having monitors as I've only used headphones before, so I wouldn't know.
