I do not like being negative, but I just do not understand people who say "These are one of the truest near field studio monitor[s] I have heard in a longtime ... Awesome!!!!!" and then giving this superb product two-and-a-half stars. Weird. Anyway, these monitors are simply essential for any professional or home studio. I had a pair of - supposedly "legendary" - 5-inch Tannoys. When I substituted the Yamaha HS7's for the Tannoys, I felt like switching to a top-end Lexus from a low-end Chevy. These monitors are all-round winners, so detailed and transparent is the sound. Very clear and clean, very accurate from lows to highs without any noticeable frequency band "preference". Smooth, very smooth. I am very pleased with their overall spectrum balance - they do not sound "tired", they give me excellent "view" of even most complex mixes, which is incredibly important if you record and produce a lot of electronic/electroacoustic music, as I do. I would recommend these monitors to anyone and everyone. I am not going to say silly things like "great for the price" etc. They are great, period.
