I have never heard a cleaner sound in my life. These are everything I have looked for, very well built, you can just feel the quality. With built-in EQ for highs and bass, you can find your own perfect setting for your room. They also support both XLR and 1/4" jack cables, which is a big plus as well. At the start I was a little bit surprised by the size, as they were a little bit bigger than I expected, but that wasn't really a problem for me.

If the few extra bucks are not a problem for you, go with the HS8 over the HS7, in case you are in a dilemma between the two. Although HS8 are bigger, are consequently more powerful, detailed and deliver more lower bass frequencies.

I would definitely recommend the Yamaha HS8 to anyone who has a 500 euros budget for the speakers, as a pair of better speakers than these would cost you three times as much. But if you have a small room, take a look on the dimensions, measure it for yourself and know where and how you're going to set these up. You won't be disappointed.

A couple decades ago I once owned a set of Yamaha NS10M's in my old studio. A few years back I built a new home studio, and got some 8 and 5 inch monitors (Behringer and Mackie respectively). After recording and mixing one album through these, I found I was not pleased at all.

I finally decided to give these HS8s a try, and I'm glad I did. They have a solid bottom, rich midrange and crisp highs. I'm expecting future mixings to sound much better and these monitors will probably be much less fatiguing during long sessions than what I had been using.

In the end, I wound up dumping both the Behringer's and Mackies. I'm not totally sure these sound the same as NS10M's, but they do sound really great. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase them again, and I did seriously consider also getting a set of HS5's to A/B with, but wound up buying some 5" JBL's just to have a little "difference" in comparison.

The HS8's sound good, look really sharp (pay a very close homage to their NS10M ancestors), and are a great value for the price.

These speaker are very good value for your money and will please the most demanding of any home studio user.

Amazing

These monitors sounds amazing. More detailed than KRK Rokit RP8 g2 and Yamaha HS 80 i used before. I'm using them for mixing and beatmaking at home. They give me what I need. I have HS 80 in my studio and going to change them to HS 8. For the sound get i think there is no need to buy a subwoofer. Because lows are extremely good and detailed. There are many controllers that allows you to adjust it's sound exactly to your room, studio. You can cut highs or lows using High trim and Room Control functions. If your room is small try HS7 or 5.

I cannot believe how well mixes on these speakers translate on to other systems. You have to work hard with them, but after two hours doing my first mix, on a song with about 50 separate tracks, the results were absolutely awesome. I had roughly mixed the track in pro quality headphones, and lived with it for a while, but the mix on these was light years ahead.

They are slightly scooped in the mids - which only makes you fatten up your mix even more. They are slightly harsh on the very high end - which is good for me because it forced me to tame my highs a bit - resulting in a much more professional sounding song.

My mixing room is about 6.5m by 5.5m, and these have the power, bass and balance to completely fill the space. I may at some point add the yamaha sub, but not because I need one - I'd just like to have it.

The build quality is exceptional.

The room control is very useful, but after moving my desk (and hence these speakers) about a meter from the wall, I found that I didn't need to use it. If you are right up against a wall and don't have any bass trapping behind the speakers, I would suggest using the room control. I wouldn't buy these if I had a small room.

Needs space

Finally, I have my first studio monitors! My choice was a pair of HS8 speakers. They need space... in every aspect. Firstable, they are huge. This is not a problem of course, but if somebody can not estimate from the pictures, I can tell they are big for a normal table.

The second aspect is the sound. I have to sit far from the speakers to enjoy the full range of sound. And it goes deep. Really deep in sub range. There is no need of subwoofer at all.

Sound again: They are LOUD. 120W makes the room alive. There is great power in the system. In the same time they precisely represent an ideal frequency range for advanced monitoring situations. (Between home and professional use).
Although, you have to take care of room acoustics!!

There are several controls on the back. I use room control to show mercy to neighbours. XLR and TRS is really useful. The housing and construction is beautiful!

I recommend!
