Comments about Yamaha HS80M 8" Powered Studio Monitor - Each:

I bought me a set of yamaha sh80m because my friend own a pair, and it sounds great for mixing. You can sit there for hours and your ears won't get tired compare to my other studio monitor. If you record any thing it will sounds exactly the way it sounds in real time that help me a lot to make decisions for the right amount EQ I set in every single track or master track. Do not expect extra bass or extra high on this monitor they are made to me more for mixing. If you are think to get one of this via online make sure tell the seller that you want it well package because they break easily, the wood are not pure wood.

    The sound coming out of these speakers is super accurate. As soon as I plug it in and started listening to some of my beats I felt like the happiest man on earth. Worth the money.

          Comments about Yamaha HS80M 8" Powered Studio Monitor - Each:

          Musician's Friend comes through once again. I had a pair of Yamaha HS80M speakers for about 9 years. Suddenly, one of them went silent. The light was on but no one was home, no sound. Speaker was not blown but it simply stopped working. Ran it through all checks, different tests and cables, and it was simply dead. I love these monitors. They sound incredible. Figured I got my money's worth after 9 years. Checked around for the best price, called Musician's Friend and they beat everyone hands down. Ordered another HS8OM on a Sunday evening, got the new speaker by 12noon on Wednesday. Sounds amazing. Great service, great products from Musician's Friend. A happy customer...again.

                  As default those monitors are good, but only after modding (changed caps and OPAMPs) it where its really shines. Now they are over $1000ea (no kidding).

                  Best studio monitors i have used so far great features and sound and really helps with mixing and mastering. Plus they look professional and i can't say enough on how good they sound and better than my behringer truth monitors. Great buy for the price and would buy another pair if i could!!

                  better buy than KRK rockets

                  Comments about Yamaha HS80M 8" Powered Studio Monitor - Each:

                  overall they are a pretty accurate monitor for the money. i would recommend them.
                  these have all the features i need. i have everything set to flat and they sound true for the space i use.
                  quality seem good to me. they seem to be well built.
                  i think this is the best bang for the buck in this class. my first purchase were krk rocket 6's. they had almost no high end production. my mixes would be all over the place. i think they suck. the yamaha's are superior. they give a much more accurate representation of what is actually in the mix. they smoke the KRK rockets.

                  The frequency range and clarity on these monitors are amazing! Provide VERY accurate mixes that don't hide any imperfections. I do not own the sub but so far I haven't really needed it. I highly suggest getting these for a studio of any size. Great buy!
