I use this to mix in my bedroom studio, to learn mastering and most of all to listen to music in general.

People have been discouraging me from buying reference monitors to listen to music, but I wouldn't go back. Why would you want to listen to music on some HiFi speakers that enhance the EQ and essentially make it sound different from the way the producers wanted it to sound? Ha!

As for the speakers themselves, they are heavy, solid, they give the impression they're gonna last forever and they sound crystal clear. I can't imagine having to buy a subwoofer, as these give more than enough bass. The high and low cut are very useful e.g. when you have less than 1.5m of free space behind the speakers (in corners, etc.). The only downside is minor interference noise whenever my cellphone is close to the studio desk. This can be solved easily by setting it to airplane mode though.

If you want to buy the best possible 8 inch studio monitors under 300EUR/piece, get this. you won't regret it.

Had my HS8s for 1,5 years at the moment of this review and they're still working 100%, no trouble whatsoever. The Frequency range is measured at -10dB so it's not really comparable with monitors measured at 0dB. There's a slight hiss when the monitors are on but not used. This is typical for monitors in this price range and only noticeable when you put your ear really close. When I listened to these and the older HS80s in a store there was this very harsh mid range but at home in an untreated room there was none of that harshness. Go figure. They sound just as good on low volumes also. The only negative I can come up with is that the power switch is in the back but most active monitors have it in the back. Reaching back there twice a day is not too much of a hassle.
