Yamaha HS5

Since the 1970s, the iconic white woofers and distinctive sound of Yamaha nearfield reference monitors have been the original industry standard for a reason - their accuracy. Unlike studio monitors with added bass or treble frequencies that may sound better at first, HS Series speakers are designed to give you the most honest and precise reference, providing an ideal sonic platform to build upon during the mixing process. Combining acquired knowledge and expertise with state-of-the-art sound technology, Yamaha's team of speaker engineers has examined, then optimized, every aspect that contributes to making these monitors the most trusted in their field. The second generation HS series also adds a new 6.5" model to the lineup, bringing its exceptional accuracy to a greater variety of recording environments.

  • 2-way bass-reflex bi-amplified nearfield studio monitor with 5" cone woofer and 1" dome tweeter
