  • Excerpt: Sky-high performance for a rock-bottom price
  • Pros: : Unsurpassed clarity, detail, imaging, and transient response in its price range. Performance doesn’t degrade when placed on shelves. Built-in filters and level control. Small footprint. Exceptional value.
  • Cons: Very slightly understated sibilance. XLR connector doesn’t latch.

  • Excerpt: These monitors are very accurate with the highs and high mids. They however are not accurate with low frequencies. If you were to mix the lows on these monitors as if you would on true monitors, as soon as you take them to other speakers and consumer products the bass will not be proportional. I will be upgrading to the HS8's soon.
  • Pros: Pros, Accurate High End, Clear Sound, Versatile
  • Cons: Cons, Not Accurate Lows
