What can I say about these Yamaha HS7 speakers that hasn't already been said.

From the moment you pick up the box to unpack them you just know they have a certain something special. They are heavy and solid and the build quality is superb, they have a look and feel that just says 'Quality'

Then of course there is the sound, which is why we buy these things, My HS7's are fed through a Fluid Audio SRI-2 which I have reviewed separately. I have them sitting on some t-akustic Insulators to eliminate any boom from the desk unit they are on top of.

When you turn on the power, the Yamaha logo just under the Bass cone lights up, a nice little touch. The range of adjustable presets on the rear of each speaker allow you to very quickly and easily 'dial in' to your room.

These speakers are powerful without being uncomfortable to listen to even at relatively high volume. The tonal range is clear and precise, I've heard detail in music that I hadn't noticed before. The sound is 'flat' but in a good way. These speakers don't add any kind of color or flavor to the music, they just deliver the sound as it was meant to be heard.

In the price range where they fall I think you would be very hard pressed to find anything better.

The only slight negative is that the power switches are on the rear of the unit which can be a little clumsy to reach depending on your setup. Perhaps the illuminated logo could be a power on/off switch on some future version?

In short, these speakers saw me through college and I always found them brilliant for as all around speakers. Regrettably, the hardware has developed crackling and humming after 3-4 years, which is double what most people get if forums are to be believed, but either way, having been attached to these speakers for those years, to see them fail in such a minute but ultimately decisive way is actually a bit upsetting.

They don't do well with phones or other electronics near them, which considering they're in my studio is also a bit baffling.

Pros: Cannot complain about sound. When they're at their best, I'll put them against anything else on the market in that price range. Also, a small thing but this is important, they look fantastic.

Cons: Very much has a finite lifespan. Rear port means consideration is needed as to where they will be located, perhaps not ideal for a bedroom producer

I use these studio monitors to mix electronic dance music, mostly House, Electro House, and Dubstep.
I also use them to monitor my mixes, when I'm DJ'ing at home.

The HS7's are the best choice in the price range they're in, Yamaha is best known by their NS10's, which are present in many pro studios, and still being used to mix regularly.
The NS10's are a trademark, but these new monitors (HS5/7/8) are more advanced, and better built. Overall, great quality of sound and design. Their clarity is way higher, and their sound is flatter.

The speaker cabinet is beautifully made and designed, it's simplistic design allows it to be very stealth, and the material used to cover the exterior of the cabinet doesn't stain or scratch easily, and it's super easy to clean.

What I don't like about the HS7's is the fact that the bass port is on the back, having the necessity to distance them a bit from the walls, more than normal, or having to put isolation behind them to absorb or control the bass frequencies, avoiding reflexes and phase cancellation.

Another fact is that the sub is 6,5 inches and not 7. I don't know why, but it is true that the best use you give these monitors is pairing them with an HS8S subwoofer.
A minor problem is that the treble is a little bit faded on these, but it's not a problem as you can easily tell by a reference track, what is the correct volume.


To sum it all up, my experience with these has been the best, they've almost burnt in and they are sounding great!
I totally advise anyone who is interested in a medium priced monitors with great sound to buy the Yamaha HS7's, honest, clear and high quality!

Great pair of monitors.
Andrei M., 11.10.2020
I bought these monitors for a home studio situation, that includes playing VST instruments through them, my guitars, recording, mixing, mastering etc. I wanted an all round good pair of monitor that won't overpower a regular sized room that wasn't mean as a studio. At a decent budget.

Clarity on these is spot on. You hear every little thing, which is a good thing since this is what they're meant to do. All the way from low volume to max volume the speakers provide a smooth listening experience, they don't have any overpowering frequencies. Even at max volume with the bass booming it's just as clear as on lower volume. For those thinking these don't have enough bass they do, at least in my room scenario they have plenty. I read reviews saying they tire the ear or are a bit harsher, I haven't found that to be the case. On the contrary they sound very smooth. After using them for around 2 days I can say that I'm very happy with the purchase. If you need more bass or have a bigger room you can go with the HS8's. Otherwise these are a monster deal.

Construction is very solid. Sturdy, nothing rattles or whatever even cranked. But that's to be expected I think.

Controls on the back are simple yet intuitive. They're pretty much enough for what you need, nothing to crazy to get lost in. #makeyourmixsoundgoodbro

I would def recommend these for anybody looking for a pair of studio monitors. Great build quality, great design and beautiful sound.
