Ever since the 1970's the iconic white woofer and signature sound of Yamaha's nearfield reference monitors have become a genuine industry standard for a reason - their accuracy. Unlike studio monitors with added bass or treble frequencies which may sound more flattering at first, HS Series speakers were designed to give you the most honest, precise reference possible, providing an ideal sonic platform to build on throughout the mixing process. By combining acquired knowledge and expertise with state-of-the-art sound technologies, Yamaha's speaker engineering team have examined, then optimized, every aspect that has contributed to making these monitors the most trusted in the business. The second generation HS Series also adds a new 6.5" model to the lineup, bringing its exceptional accuracy to an even greater variety of recording environments

You get what you pay for when it comes to monitors but these Yamaha's sound a little better then what they're priced at. I bought these to replace my NS10's because my amp was giving me problems and I wanted a more clean, compact setup. Definitely don't sound like the NS10's but still a nice second reference monitor next to my Adam A77X's

Very good NS-10 replacements. Just like the NS-10s they are unflattering and unforgiving. If you can get your mix to sound amazing on these, your mix will be amazing when played on other systems.

Best monitors ever !!! They look small at 1st glance then you go to pick them up , they are quite heavy for their size, each monitor is independently powered. trust me they pack a punch, a must have in any studio. with the room control feature its very nice especially if you have less than 4 feet of distance between ur speakers n the wall. with a simple flick of the switch u can removed tht overpowering fuzz effect created from wall proximity and keep working without having to knock your wallsdown haha. I give the hs5 a 10 out of 10

These are a very good set of studio monitors. Good highs and mids; the bottom end is non existent. Great product; you will not be disappointed.

Just picked the hs5's up a week ago after quite a few months of research. I have to say, amazing monitors for the money! Not because they sound like a million bucks, although they don't sound bad at all. But because they are the truest representation of my mixes I've heard so far! I can pick out every instrument in the stereo field in perfect clarity. Theses monitors are just what I needed, honesty. My opinion? Don't spend a cent on hyped "nice" sounding monitors. Your mixes will suffer. Get your songs sounding tight on these guys and they'll sound great on everything!

I'g assuming these are the new HS line. I owned a pair of KRKs Rokit 6s before these, and i like the crystal clear highs and solid mids compared to the muddy boom of the KRKs. They leave something to be desired in the low end, so I will have to grab a SW10W. Overall .. I'm very impressed!
