Studio Monitor

When Yamaha set out to make a speaker that produced pure, unmodified sound with as flat as a response as possible, they returned with the HS8. Superb at reproducing precise sounds, highly recommended by music professionals, and including easy controls for instant customization, the Yamaha HS8 Studio Monitor gives you the clarity and power you need to fully experience your most engaging music.

Note: This drop includes one monitor in your color choice of black or white. If you need two monitors for a stereo setup, you can add an additional monitor at checkout.

Sound Design

Featuring Yamaha’s latest transducer technology, the HS8 is built with a 1-inch tweeter that delivers clear and undistorted sound up to 30 kHz. To cover the low end, there’s an 8-inch woofer designed in parallel with the overall enclosure to provide an unblemished and fully booming low end. For one last extra touch, the HS8 boasts a specifically designed bass-reflex port that reduces unwanted vibrations generated from the magnet to the edge of the speaker.

Final Touches

Should you need to adjust the HS8 to better fit your tunes or room, you can head to the back of the monitor and fiddle with the equalization switches. With the High Trim switch altering the high frequency response and the Room Control switch changing the low-frequency response, you have the ability to alter the output to better fit your room’s acoustics.
