WELCOME TO FLATLAND!

By Mixing Penguin

from Lakewood, Ca

Comments about Yamaha HS80M 8" Powered Studio Monitor - Each:

These are the monitors to live by they are true frequency by frequency. After using these speakers i have gotten way better at my mixing and the fact is that if it sounds good on these it will sound good on anything.. the results are amazing it has a tight low end responce with a clean high section and a punchy mid's not like other monitors that color the low end and lack on the high's these puppies are what you need to finish your set up.. yea you can spend more money on expencive monitors but why when all you need are these.. easy on the ears and an amazing back panel what more can you ask for i do this for a living i sit in front of these for 10-12 hours/day best investment ive done to date... get these cuz if you dont then dont even try to mix anymore....

True Sound

By Earl

from Bronx, New York

Comments about Yamaha HS80M 8" Powered Studio Monitor - Each:

I've had these monitors for a year now and I am very pleased with them. There is no guessing when I'm Mixing tracks, what you hear is what you get. I also own a pair of BX5s, I percused before the HS80Ms. They sound good, but when I played my mixes back on other Systems, the mix would have too Much Bass. I think these monitors have a very flat and true response. Great Buy !

Hissing sounds

By Raffy

from Las Vegas NV

Comments about Yamaha HS80M 8" Powered Studio Monitor - Each:

There is an audible hiss that can be heard from the HS80M and a lesser hissing sound from the HS50M. If you play music, the hissing sound goes away and the sounds that come out of the speakers are awesome.

There is some hiss, nut it almost unnoiteable

By Yoav Cohen

from Israel

Comments about Yamaha HS80M 8" Powered Studio Monitor - Each:

Very good sound, even in low volume. Good bass, mid and high. (Even better than BM5A or ADAM A7 that I checked before buying) Good resoultion. Low price. There is a hiss, so I always need to play something if I don't want to hear it.

Frequency response

By JCortes - A.K. from Philly

from Philadelphia, PA

Comments about Yamaha HS80M 8" Powered Studio Monitor - Each:

As a music producer/engineer, I brought a reference cd with Salsa music to Guitar Center in Cherry Hill. Anyone who knows about music will tell you that Salsa music is the hardest to engineer and sounds great on a small radio box. So I took my reference cd and tested out all of the monitors they had on display. The second best choice besides these were a pair of JBL monitors. HS80M held their ground with ultra flat response and delivered clarity when comparing them with 16 other pairs of monitors.

Awesome!

By Storm Kiernan

from Gilbert, AZ

Comments about Yamaha HS80M 8" Powered Studio Monitor - Each:

I did a lot of shopping around before making the decision to purchase these two. I compared them side by side and there was nothing that beat them. You would literally have to go into 1.5k+ range to start getting a better quality monitor.

Best Monitors BY FAR

By Nathan

from San Diego, California

Comments about Yamaha HS80M 8" Powered Studio Monitor - Each:

These monitors are truly amazing. I run them through a PreSonus central station and couldn't be happier with the results. The quality of my mixes have improved drastically with these monitors. There isn't one reason you shouldn't buy them if you're looking into it. I upgraded from krk's rp8's and never realized how badly colored the krk's are. These are flat and sexy. BUY THEM

NS10m have grown into a new model for the millenium

By ELi

from Boston, MA (JP)

Comments about Yamaha HS80M 8" Powered Studio Monitor - Each:

I have to say when it comes to accuracy and precision, Yamaha is truly an exmaple of great studio equipment. NS10m were and in some studio they're are the industry standard studio monitors. HS80m have taken that into a higher level. More accurate sound. I highly like them better than the VXT8. Steinberg and Yamaha, what can I say. They're Germans and Japanese, nothing but quality and technology. I love them, bottom line, I truly love them!!!!

Simply wow

By SUBFREQ

from CALIFORNIA

Comments about Yamaha HS80M 8" Powered Studio Monitor - Each:

I almost got myself a pair of the KRK's. I am so glad I didn't. I listened to the different pairs in my price range and this was by far, hands down, the best. The response was nice and flat. I found that the KRK8's were over-enhanced bass and the 5's were just weak. I took my new monitors into my studio and all I could say is WOW. Beautiful resolution at high and low levels. Remember that walls amplify bass. If you get a monitor that has a lot of bass you will naturally EQ it out making your mix lack the bass you want. ENJOY.

Great Monitors!

By Diego Zapata

from NY

Comments about Yamaha HS80M 8" Powered Studio Monitor - Each:

Ive had these monitors for over a year now! You can tell that they have a flat response and that are very "true". But the only problem is that they are to noisy! when you are not playing anything you?ll hear a hiss sound coming out of them! It can get annoying sometimes!! But apart form that they are great monitors.
