At the end of the day, these monitors are ideal for anyone looking for a pair of high-quality speakers without breaking the bank. At just €159 each, it is tough finding a competitor in this class.

In use, the standout quality of the 802s rushes to the fore with a pleasingly punchy bass response, with an extremely rounded tone. For the size and price, I was particularly impressed by the consistency and weight of this bottom end; these speakers really have been designed with low frequency clarity in mind. (…) Things just got a lot hotter in the active monitor department at this price point.

"The Tannoy 402's (4" woofer) aren't for everyone; the standard sizes for recording-studio monitors are 5, 6, and 8 inch monitors, assuring that they can handle a robust bass in your music. Tannoy recognized however, that there are lots of folks like me in homes, dorms and garages, who are recording and mixing music in relatively confined spaces. (…) The Tannoys have fit in well with my MO, and have completely met my studio needs. If you have the space and the budget, go bigger with 5 or 8 inch monitors. But if you want a more economical form factor, the 402's will not let you down.
