Waaaauw
Blessyotrap, 04.02.2019
Ive always been a KRK guy, and stayed away from these monitors, but i must say im stepping to the other side. Super clear and clean sound. The high freq are just amazing and very true sounding. Mids are present and even the low frequencies, when hearing it in your sweat spot, are really good. Its not a boomy sound, it will not have as much warmth as other monitors, but this one will give you a very honoust sound of what you are actually listening too, which can be very good for when you are a producer or engineer. If your mix sounds great on these, it will sound great everywhere! Do keep in mind that the low freqs arent super present, so a dubbelcheck with headphone or other monitor is recommended when using for mixing/producing. All in all great addon to my studio setup.

Main monitors in my studio
Vincent Black, 27.07.2016
The control room in my studio is approximately 7 meters long and 5 meters wide and I use the Yamaha HS 5s as my main monitors paired with a sub-woofer which I occasionally use to check the very lows. I absolutely love the Yamahas for mixing and they give me a very clear representation as to what is happening in my mixes. The bass response is great for a 5'' speaker and I could probably even get by without the sub which is more of a safety net for me. I used 8'' speakers in my room together with the Yamahas in the past, at the moment I don't have the larger speakers anymore and, to be honest, I don't even miss them. The mids are very pronounced and clear and if something is wrong in the mid-range the Yamahas will let you know that for sure. The highs are presented very well too allowing the listener to judge the overall balance of the mix. If you work on these monitors for a long time, pay attention to the listening level as the very present mid-range may start fatiguing your ears. If I come up with a balanced sounding mix on the Yamahas, the material almost always translates really well on other systems too. I recommend the Yamaha HS 5s to anyone looking for quality near-field monitors - these will not let you down.

Great Budget Active Monitors
02.03.2017
First set of active Monitors, previously relied on my ATH-M50x's, these were a bit if a revelation to me. For perspective I use these to make electronic music, running through a Focusrite Scarlett 6i6.

Fantastic sound, they feel very accurate, and are a joy to work with. I feel like there may be a slight lack of depth at low frequency making it sometimes difficult to mix and master low frequency instruments, but I have no other reference monitors to confirm this, only a few other similar opinions online.

Build quality is fantastic, not sure of the exact material but its solid. All inputs and knobs on the back are great quality and feel like they would last as long as a caring user will allow.

Overall I recommend these for anyone looking for a decent pair of nearfield monitors based off the legendary ns10's, without breaking the bank.

Yamaha HS5 Review
William269, 05.02.2014
Firstly the speakers came secure in the packaging containing protection. The reason I bought these speakers was mainly because of the compact size, the breadth of frequency response for the size and also the flat response.

These speakers cope will with all tasks I have thrown at them. From mixing delicate acoustic tracks to full rock bands. The speakers also stand up well to electronic styles also. Everything sounds great through these speakers!

I am really impressed particularly with the features of the monitors. The option of room control by cutting lower frequencies is great if you live in a flat or apartment. Definitely consider these speakers if you want that control of now disturbing your neighbors!

All in all they are great and I couldn't recommend these more for the home studio enthusiast.
