Studio Monitor Speakers

Accuracy is Everything

Yamaha's studio monitors are designed for professional engineers who are serious about their mixes and demand the most precise, high-quality sound for their monitoring needs. Accuracy is our top priority throughout the entire production process, from the meticulous material selection for our own customized transducers, to the rigorous testing of the acoustic properties and design of the enclosure. Combined with built-in high-efficiency amplifiers our near-field monitors deliver a supremely accurate and honest sonic platform to build your sound upon, in a powerful yet compact package that meets the demands of even the most discriminating ear.


HS Series

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.

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.
