Product Description

The Yamaha HS8 Powered Studio Monitor yields remarkably flat response from an 8 inch and 1 inch tweeter that have been redesigned by the engineers at Yamaha to deliver uncompromising response so you can perfect your mixes! The HS8 active monitor is ideal for studios that want accurate low end response without an additional sub.

Professional and hobbyist producers and musicians all over the world love Yamaha HS series monitors because of their flat response that doesn’t boost any frequency. The bottom line is, once you get the mix to sound good on these, it will sound good anywhere!

Yamaha HS8 Powered Studio Monitor Features

  • 2-way bass-reflex bi-amplified nearfield studio monitor
  • 8 inch cone woofer and 1 inch dome tweeter
  • 38Hz - 30kHz frequency response
  • 75W LF plus 45W HF bi-amp system for high-performance 120W power amplification
  • ROOM CONTROL and HIGH TRIM response controls
  • XLR and TRS phone jack inputs accept balanced or unbalanced signals
When choosing reference monitors for mixing and music production, accuracy is the prime consideration. Speakers that sound good on first impression may not necessarily be accurate. What you really need is an honest reference for your mix, rather than monitors that have been tweaked or colored to deceptively sound impressive.

The Yamaha HS8 active reference monitors have been created by Yamaha's studio monitor engineering team to deliver exceptionally flat, accurate response that you can trust. Unlike monitor speakers with exaggerated bass and treble that make a good first impression but can't be relied on for accuracy, the HS series were designed to be true studio reference monitors in the tradition of the legendary Yamaha NS10M.

Newly Developed Transducers
The Yamaha HS Series studio monitors feature newly developed transducers that achieve astonishingly smooth response over a wide range of bandwidth. These transducers utilize an advanced magnetic field design that regulates the flow of magnetic response to provide seamless, natural sonic transitions. Each component's materials and design were carefully re-examined, then optimized, to drastically improve the accuracy of signal reproduction throughout the audio spectrum.

What is your opinion of this product?
I hear everything now. I mean everything. It's so flat it's often unnerving. I've cleaned up mixed I knew were perfect and am doing less work during mixing and tracking than ever before.

Best studio monitors for the buck!
What is your opinion of this product?
I've owned a wide range of studio monitors, from the very cheapest to some of the most expensive. For most mid-level home studios and smaller commercial studios, these monitors give exceptional performance for the typical budget. Many use the Yamaha HS5 monitors these days as replacements or substitutes for the famous NS10's. They do sound very similar. But if you'd like something with a bit more low end, the HS8 is the perfect choice. The best way I could come up with how to describe how the HS8 monitors sound is "transparent". The HS5's are good. The HS8's are a step up and they almost "disappear", allowing you to hear the music in its purest form. For the $$, of course. Yes, $2500 monitors (and up) will sound better and be even more transparent, but for this price range, the HS8 monitors can't be beat. They are now my "A" monitors in the studio for tracking, mixing, and mastering.

Best bang for the buck
What is your opinion of this product?
I absolutely love these monitors, I use them at home for producing, djing, and parties, these monitors put out plenty of sound for parties, tbh they can be to loud in a house setting. I've taken these monitors to the lake and other outdoor areas to play some music and they were more than sufficient for what I was doing. On top of all that american musical's payment plans are amazing and the customer service is the best I've seen, they will always answer your calls and have good information on hand... highly recommend the monitors and american musical, I will definitely be doing more buisness with them
