Seems like the line-up of choices when it comes to studio monitors is pretty cut and dry. Yamahas, Presonus, KRK Rokits, M-Audio, Adam Audio, Mackies yadda yadda yadda. One could spend weeks if not months trying to decide which are the best ones. I know this because that's exactly what I did before buying these. I went to Guitar Center and heard them all, out of the bunch the Yamahas HS8's stood out to me like they do to many but that's because they are pretty colored for a studio monitor specially the mid to low frequencies which sounds great for playback. Not so much for mixing.
Generally speaking, any standard studio monitor tends to focus higher frequencies in a forward direction, becoming less and less focused in the lower frequencies. Well, not the Earthquake's. The balance on them is something out of a dream, the low end is rich and full and the mids crystal clear thanks to the ribbon tweeter. I couldn't believe how great they sounded. The low end is crazy, how they managed to get them to go down to 35hz out of a small woofer is beyond me.
Another tough decision was choosing between the 6.5" and the 8". I think we have the tendency as consumers to think "bigger is better" specially when it comes to speakers. It's all about the bass right. What people dont realize is that when it comes to music production and studio monitors more bass isn't necessarily a good thing. Unless you're willing on spending thousands of dollars on sound treating your room to control the low end frequencies. Remember that the more bass you have the bigger the problem gets and the more you will drown out the mids and highs leaving you with all sorts of acoustic problems. People usually dont think about this and just go for the bigger monitors because they think they'll sound better. I thought this too until recently.
My room is 11'x14' which is considerably big for the standard bedroom and the 6.5's are more than enough. The whole room shakes when I turn them up and go so low that it sounds like I have a subwoofer. I'm so glad I didnt get the 8 inch, it would have been a big mistake. Creating an array of problems when it comes to room acoustics.
If you're on the fence about these dont be, set them exactly how the diagram in the manual indicates. Then just sit back and be blown away. Turn the high frequency knob one notch down (-1db) and you have a perfect balance of lows and highs. They sound better than the gimmicky brands yet cost so much less (not to mention they're beautiful). I really hope this review helps others decide. I usually dont buy products from brands I've never heard of but this was a pleasant surprise.
Also the price was cheap ($126 ea) and I'm a junkie for ribbon & electrostatic.
Compare with my ML LX16, HF has slightly less ambiance and air and LF is slightly less quick & tight (just nitpicking).
The sound is very neutral & detail as described by Sean.
Great for mix though I use them as desktop speakers.
Thank Sean for his review or I wouldn't try them.
