Yamaha HS50M active monitor (single)

When choosing reference monitors for mixing and music production, accuracy is essential. Speakers that sound “good” on first impression may not necessarily be accurate. What you really need is an honest reference for your mix rather than monitors that have been tweaked or coloured to deceptively sound impressive.

The new HS-series reference monitors have been created by Yamaha’s studio monitor engineering team to deliver exceptionally flat, accurate response that you can trust. Unlike “monitor” speakers with exaggerated bass and treble that make a good first impression but can't be relied on for accuracy, the HS series were designed to be true studio reference monitors in the tradition of the legendary Yamaha NS10M.


  • 2-way bass-reflex bi-amplified near-field studio monitor with 5" cone woofer and 3/4" dome high-frequency unit delivers 55 Hz — 20 kHz frequency response.
  • 70 watts dynamic bi-amplified power.
  • XLR and TRS phone jack inputs accept balanced or unbalanced signals.
  • Level control facilitates precise overall system level matching.
  • MID EQ, ROOM CONTROL, and HIGH TRIM response control switches.
  • LOW CUT switch.
  • Full magnetic shielding.

Yamaha HS50M Active Monitor (Single) Reviews


Perfect for Home Monitoring.

The HS50's are a superb pair of monitors for use at home in small sized rooms such as bedrooms and offices. These are the little brothers to the mighty HS80's, but don't let the word little put you off. The 5' drivers boast a lot of power for their size, although if being used in a bigger room, the HS80's would be the wiser choice.
These units offer amazing sound clarity at both low and high frequencies and you get all of this for a very reasonable price.
It's hard to find a bad word to be said about these monitors, and when you listen to them, you can see why.


Great Buy

These are my first pair of monitors, and i couldn\'t be happier. I record and listen to anything from classical piano to quite bass heavy rock.

The clarity of the sound is quite excellent, and the room control switches are very useful (and come with a big booklet describing in very simple terms how to use them).

Every review on the planet explains how these give a great reference, and if they sound good on here, will sound good anywhere, and after a few hours listening, i can see why. Poor quality mixes and bit-rates are exposed incredibly- quite upsetting in a way.

I\'d get these, but read a lot of reviews first just so that you get the feel of what these speakers are about; particularly the bits about how the NS10s became so popular (these were built to better the ns10s...if you can)

These are superb. The thing that struck me aboutthem was the clarity and crispness of them when I first listened to them. I was going to buy some genelecs, but they sounded really muffled in comparison, and also checked out some fostex as well, and although pretty clear, they still lacked massivley compared these babies.

Now I\'ve got them at home, they\'ve really exposed the quality of the recording of alot of my music collection. Some of it sounds pants, but alot of it sounds even more fantastic, I can hear all the effects that have been applied really easily and the cymbals shimmering, picks catching the strings etc, they have blown my brains , and I\'m so glad I got them instead of the genelecs.

With my own music projects, again I can hear everything really well, and seeing as I was on a set of hi fi speakers before, they\'ve made a huge amount of difference, the biggest place so far being in the effects department because I can hear the tiniest amount of an effect I\'m applying.

These really are excellent value for money in my opinion, are humungously loud, but listen to them first and make your own mind up. They have a good rep for a reason, and I\'m saving the pennies to get the sub. That makes em even more amazing!!!


Excellent nearfield monitoring setup....

The HS50M's are definetly the best nearfield and low level monitors I have heard on the market... however if you are making music with heavy bass (50hz or below) it is essential to invest in the Yamaha HS10W subwoofer aswell.

Once these are all set up together,they are the perfect small studio monitoring system.

Excellent build quality, easy to set up with the subwoofer, and they look great aswell.
