Ever since the 1970's the iconic white woofer and signature sound of Yamaha's nearfield reference monitors have become a genuine industry standard for a reason - their accuracy. Unlike studio monitors with added bass or treble frequencies which may sound more flattering at first, HS Series speakers were designed to give you the most honest, precise reference possible, providing an ideal sonic platform to build on throughout the mixing process. By combining acquired knowledge and expertise with state-of-the-art sound technologies, Yamaha's speaker engineering team have examined, then optimized, every aspect that has contributed to making these monitors the most trusted in the business. The second generation HS Series also adds a new 6.5" model to the lineup, bringing its exceptional accuracy to an even greater variety of recording environments.


  • Recording studios

    Adhering to the Yamaha philosophy of sonic purity, the HS Series carries on the tradition of being one of the most trusted speakers for nearfield monitoring applications, lauded for the signature sound and superior accuracy achieved by our very own meticulously selected transducers. 

  • Home studios

    Now you can easily add extremely accurate professional monitors to your home studio that accommodate a wide range of input sources such as mixers, keyboards, and audio interfaces via XLR or TRS phone jack inputs. The versatile lineup of HS powered speakers can match a variety of room sizes and monitoring environments and even come equipped with a ROOM CONTROL feature can attenuate the unnatural low-end that can occur if they are placed next to a wall.

  • Control rooms

    The new HS-I models feature mounting points that allow for fast and easy installation in control rooms for theaters and halls. Because HS speakers come equipped with a built-in amplifier, users can easily configure a compact system for rooms with size limitations.

  • Events

    By mounting with baton brackets, HS-I powered speakers allow users to configure a sound reinforcement system for temporary installation events that require high-quality
    sound. Because HS speakers
    come equipped with a built-in
    amplifier, compact systems
    can be set up and taken
    down with a minimum of
    effort and time.

  • Cafes and restaurants

    HS-I models feature flexible mounting options that allow users to easily add the signature HS sound and stylish design to cafes or restaurant environments where superior audio quality is a priority. Models come in both black and white color options to match the design aesthetic of a vast array of commercial spaces.
