I have had the 305's for a few years - reliable and on the surface sound good. I cant say a heck of a lot more as my room which is my converted lounge has so many peaks and dips that it stops me having a definitive assessment of them. On the day i bought them , I'd heard Hedd, Focal ; and Genelec Ones, ATC 25s and Adams in the recent past. Not saying they are definitely in the same league or better , just saying they floated my boat on price/performance enough to purchase. The larger 307s are impressive but too "full' in the bottom for mine particularly given the acoustic stuff I'm mostly involved with and the foibles of my room. Hope that helps a little.
