    Studio monitors are loudspeakers specifically designed for audio production applications, such as recording studios, film-making, television studios, radio studios and project or home studios, where accurate audio reproduction is crucial, whereas reference monitors are loudspeakers generally used to gauge what a recording will sound like on consumer-grade speakers.

    They come in various shapes, sizes, configurations and can be passive (requiring an amplifier) or powered (built-in amplifiers.)
