Can you recommend me studio monitors for my setup?

    I have an electronic drumset and some guitars/AXE-FX2 which I usually play through headphones...but would it sound much better if I got some studio monitors? It would be for a small apartment bedroom, about 14x14 feet, and I probably wouldn't blast it at full volume so I don't bother the neighbors too much. Can you recommend me a good pair of studio monitors, and tell me if you think it would be better than playing through headphones? I don't mix music much...just play live. Thanks. As a side question...are studio monitors good to use for PC gaming as well?

    I use Rokit 8s...they're not too bad for what they are. Plus, they are pretty good for gaming. I use mine for Skyrim.

    Equator D5 user here. No complaints at all. Though they are the very first monitors I've ever owned so I can't compare/contrast to anything else.

    And I play a good amount of games through them; sound great.

    New Jbl Lsr305, no contest. They get more and more rave reviews with each new day for a reason. Of course, audition them in person if possible with a material you know well. I have them at home, like them a lot.
