Just curiosity hitting me. I see some near field monitors but also higher end midfield monitors. Anyone actually using the midfield? Do you like them any perceived advantages?

There's some interesting discussion regarding near vs far-field here:

https://www.gearslutz.com/board/so-much-gear-so-little-time/896950-near-field-monitors-vs-far-field-vs.html

There's a difference of views, as is often the case.

The thread refers to a scientific paper from Philips Research Europe on the matter, repeated below in case the thread ever disappears:

Headphones/earphones still probably provide the sound experience least coloured by room, or device resonances.

Thanks Voip I'll dig in!
Odd really anymore my KRK almost never get used. I either use the DT880 or my QSC K10. The KRK always made my ears ache after a few hours. I never figured out why. I just assumed it was because with the QSC they are positioned ten or more feet from me but the KRK are less then three feet away. The KRK never bothered me when I just has some music playing and I was across the room but they were not the best for that purpose.
