The HS-80M's designed to be true studio reference monitors in the tradition of the famous NS10Ms. The HS-80M reference monitors were designed to give you exceptionally flat response so, you can really trust what you hear. That means that mixes that sound good on Yamaha HS speakers will sound good on anything. In fact, that's the ultimate test of a reference monitor. Even better than that, HS series speakers not only sound good, they look great, too. The HS-80M is a two-way, internally powered speaker system designed to provide affordable, high quality reference monitoring for all types of recording and multimedia applications - home studios, computer-based music production, gaming systems, keyboards rigs, and personal computer systems.
