Spectacular YAMAHA HS7 monitors!
Graham George, 16.08.2018
I needed a pair of well recommended monitors for my small home studio, recording guitar and vocals. The previous appraisals here on Thomann were pretty much all good, so I went along with all those that were happy with these speakers!

I wasn't disappointed at all, in fact they are far better than I had expected.

I am using them to monitor my own music, and especially for mixing and mastering tracks. The room I have is poor for sound quality, despite being small and with acoustic treatment, but being near-field monitors, these are ideal for close approximation to my consul desk.

(So much so, that when I step away from the desk, I can hear the dissonance of the room, but when positioned correctly in front of them, the sound is perfect.)

I was surprised not only at the quality, but that they give little or no vibration. I have them mounted on a heavy wooden table, and when using my iMac computer speakers for a rough mix before using the HS7's for the final mix and master, the table vibrates through my hands when resting on the consul. With the HS7's there is no vibration whatsoever!

Pros: The overall sound is well balanced and the details of the *mid-range are superb. The top end is crisp and clean, and the bottom end as much as I need for my style, (jazz fusion). *The mid-range has fantastic detailing, much of which I now realise that I have never heard.
I liked that they were available in white too, as they match some of the studio decor, and I prefer not to have everything black.

Cons: May seem a little pricey for a home studio, but worth every penny. Other than that, at this time I have none.

Summary:
Ideal monitors for a home studio.
Great all round sound quality and definition.
Small to medium room use, where correct positioning diminishes poor sound to room quality.

Absolutely delighted with them!

Crisp clear sound!
Stargate Max, 22.02.2018
I use them (two) for my small home studio, and I love the white design instead of more common black. This 6.5" size seems like the best bet for a smaller studio -- not too small size (thinner sound) and not too big and heavy (8"). I compensated for the lack of true bass with a separate sub anyway.

The sound quality is superb! I can hear all the small nuances and the whole stereo field so clearly. Ordinary home audio systems start to suck big time after you hear these speakers.

I don't really know any real cons other than their relatively heavy weight, but what else would you expect from a high end studio speaker?
I would prefer the power-on light a bit dimmer or in blue color (the Yamaha logo below). It's a bit too bright, especially in the dark.

To me it has all the features I need -- the power button, the volume knob. It may lack some special features for someone else, though.

I'll give it 5 stars as these two speakers are exactly what I wanted!

Excellent product for the money, recommended purchase
Carnivore, 25.08.2017
Sound is accurate and flat. What?s coming in is mirrored to what you?ll hear. By definition, the perfect near field monitoring.

I use these to produce and mix Industrial Metal, with loads of guitars and booming bass freq, which the Yamahas seems to handle easily.

Volume grants comfortable headroom and both the variety of in/out connections and the overall quality if the construction is reasonable for this price range.

Compared to market alternatives, I?m coming from Samson Resolve Series and a significant improvement was noted from the get go. MAudio and KrK, which I also used before in my projects with the same DAW and hardware, did not perform any better than these.

The white finish is elegant and seems durable.

Up to date, I could not happier.

Best Monitors, way too cheap for what you get!
13thNemesis, 22.06.2020
The monitors are great soundwise, they need some setting up but once that is done you hear new things in music that you have never heard before.

They make great music sound better and sadly also lower quality music, way worse.

I use them mainly with plugins to play guitar via my PC and to listen to music. And I really like them for that, also I took them in white instead of black since they do not get so dusty.
They do not have such a powerfull bass as "normal" speakers but very listenable and you can still enjoy fat beats .
