I needed a good studio monitor to fit on a smaller desk. My main studio is limited in space and I was careful to find smaller monitors that would still deliver a perfect sound. I went to a local music store and a trusted salesman told me I won't find better than the 50M. They had the newer HS 5 in stock too but they still had a few HS 50Ms in stock as well and he said go with that.

I use them for mixing, monitoring and mastering my music.


The stereo image is great. I have two set at the same angle, an equal distance from my chair. Every little detail in my music comes out so clearly that I can't help but notice tiny things that I would never hear in normal speakers.

For example, I was mixing a project for a client and he had forgotten to adjust his mic pre-amp gain before recording vocals. He was unable to get another recording to me, so I ran it through an analog mixer to boost the volume a bit. Of course, this caused a bit of background fuzz to appear. After getting rid of as much fuzz as I could, I finished the track and sent it to the client. I explained to him that he may hear fuzz throughout the track and he responded that he couldn't! I listened in many other speakers and couldn't hear it, it only appeared with the honest response of the HS 50Ms.


I love how detailed the speaker's response is. I especially like that I can listen to the smallest changes I make in effects plugins and tell the difference.

If you can find these for around $200, they are very much worth it. If you are spending more you may compare them to some more expensive monitors, but otherwise I'd say you can't go wrong.

If something were to happen to my speakers, I would try to replace them with the 50Ms all over again. They are very nice and give you an honest perspective on the sounds you've recorded.
