The HS7 Monitor is designed as a true reference monitor with exceptionally flat response. If your mix sounds good here, it'll sound good everywhere.

The elegant white-cone speakers used in the HS-series monitors deliver superlative audio performance that is further enhanced by a carefully engineered mounting system. A system of screws and a specially designed mounting ring eliminates spurious vibration and resonance, allowing the speaker to deliver its full sonic potential.

Another feature that boosts woofer performance is a magnet selected to produce accurate, solid low-end response. The tweeter frames employ an advanced smooth-contour design that minimizes losses so that high-frequency details come through with remarkable accuracy. The extra thickness of the tweeter frame also minimizes resonance that can interfere with high-end clarity. The overall result is extraordinarily smooth, accurate response throughout the audio spectrum.

Optimum Response In Any Room
Speaker response can vary greatly depending on the size, shape, and surface acoustics of the room in which they're used, as well as how they're placed within that environment. The HS50M and HS80M give you extra room-matching and speaker placement versatility with ROOM CONTROL, MID EQ, and HIGH TRIM response control switches that are specifically designed to compensate for common acoustic deficiencies and monitoring needs.

The ROOM CONTROL switch, for example, can be used to compensate for the unnatural low-end exaggeration that usually occurs when speakers are placed close to walls or in corners. The MID EQ switch gives you subtle midrange boost and cut options in addition to flat response, while the HIGH TRIM switch offer the same type of response-tailoring capability for the high frequencies.

Large Magnets in an Advanced Magnetic Circuit Design
One feature of the HS-series monitors that you'll hear but are not likely to see is the extra large magnets. In combination with an advanced magnetic circuit design these magnets provide a powerful, uniform, tightly controlled flux field that results in exceptionally smooth response and dynamic capability over a wider frequency range.

  • 2-way bass-reflex bi-amplified nearfield studio monitor

    Comments about Yamaha HS7 Two-way 6.5" Active Monitor (Single):

    The Yamaha HS7 Two-way 6.5" Active Monitor (Single) is a great and durable monitor! The accurate frequency response on these is so close to the real thing you will think you paid a lot more for these. They may seem pricey for just one speaker, but they are very much worth it!

        The HS7 monitors are an incredible quality monitor from Yamaha. They give a true representation of the music so that you can mix accurately. I've been to a few professional studios that use these as their reference monitors. For the price, they are one of the best studio monitors available.

          Comments about Yamaha HS7 Two-way 6.5" Active Monitor (Single):

          The new HS series from Yamaha is based off the old yet still popular NS10 bookshelf series monitors. A single 6.5" woofer and 1' dome tweeter provide a surprisingly accurate frequency response from about 43Hz - 30kHz. Wirth 60W to the woofer plus 35W to the tweeter its a bi-amp system for a total 95W of power in a single speaker gives more than enough power to really test out your mixes. Overall a very impressive speaker.

                  The HS7's are BIG sounding without being tubby. Lots of available low end but not dominant. This is for the discerning producer that strives for sonic clarity.

                    The HS Yamaha series is based on the legendary NS-10 of yesteryear. That model was known for a specific mid-high frequency drop that let one compare mixes accurately. The new models are equally as specific and cost far less in addition to being active and not passive.

                    Comments about Yamaha HS7 Two-way 6.5" Active Monitor (Single):

                    All I can say about the Yamaha HS7 is you'd be missing out if you purchased something else in this price range. These are the caliber of monitors you can just close your eyes, listen, and be wowed. What I like about the monitors: 1. Clarity - Very nice high, mid, and low. Well balanced. The tweeter is very crisp and clear, but not stressful on the ear.
                    Nice one Yamaha!
