Price: It is the best set of speakers one can get at that price range.
Features: They work best in a small room that where resonation is liminal. The switches behind the speaker allow one to adjust control room and high trim which are very useful for calibrating the speakers to the room.
The volume knobs behind the speakers are very useful too. The speaker can go very loud and I usually keep the volume knobs under +4dB and control the volume trough my audio interface. To not damage the speakers and avoid pops or clicks when turning the speakers on, turn them on after opening your interface.
Sound: The sound is good for mid-high range frequencies and can go quite low. Do not expect a Genelec level to bump clean low-frequency levels with a lot of dynamics. But the overall sound quality is fair for the price.
Quality: I have them for almost a year and they still perform very good. Had no issue at all. I produce different styles of music and they perform best for tracks that do not require high-end sound design, orchestral compositions or low (27-40Hz) bass dynamics.
Extra: The led light on the speaker is aesthetically pleasing when the lights of the studio are dimmed.
So I use this speakers at home instead of a Hi-fi system. I decided to go for studio monitors mainly to avoid external amplifiers and compared to commercial compact systems, audio quality is off the roof.
Sound is really clear and sharp. Nothing feels overpowered, there is a good frequency balance and it feels flat indeed. I used different inputs so far with all having the same performance. Direct connection to a Mac with a basic stereo cable, connected to a mixer and then to a Mac and a turntable and also with a TV. I also tried them in different rooms. In a small apartment base can be too much and you will probably need some sort of base traps. In bigger rooms on the other hand, base can be lost. I also tried them in an outdoors space where base was almost non existent. I have to say, these speakers are loud. All music genres where well received and the same goes for movies.
They look really really good. The illuminating Yamaha logo looks awesome. Built quality is really nice, they feels strong and durable. They are quite heavy but that's expected.
Pros: Great sound Great quality and looks Very descent price
Cons: Not magnetically sealed and it's possible to get noise interference from cellphones Air canals are in the back meaning you can't place them against a wall All controls are located on the back and it's not ideal to turn them on and off everyday.
All in all I highly recommend these if you have the space and the money. I'm not a producer so I can't talk about performance in a professional environment, but as an audiophile I love these speakers.
