HS Series speakers have become the standard in studio monitors, trusted for many years by the world’s top audio engineers, producers, and artists. Now Yamaha has redefined their essence in a compact housing. The HS3 is a powerful tool to help create a wide range of audio content—from music production to video editing—that meets the expectations of creators who have limited space and need to keep the volume down but do not want to compromise on monitoring quality.

Sound That Is Always True To The Original
The HS3 continues the design philosophy and know-how of previous Yamaha studio monitors. No effort has been spared in the pursuit of the optimal product, and the resulting speakers comprise carefully selecting parts such as a high-performance class-D amp, a highly resilient MDF cabinet, and woofers and soft dome tweeters that deliver a sound that is faithful to the source despite their small size. They also feature proprietary “Twisted Flare Port” technology that reduces air turbulence noise in the bass reflex port, providing clear and accurate bass. That’s the secret to why the HS3 delivers outstanding resolution, sound image, and depth, with a flat response across all bandwidths without any colouring of the original sound.

Optimal Sound Tailored To Your Environment
The sound produced by speakers is sometimes affected by the surrounding environment. The rear panels of the HS3 is equipped with ROOM CONTROL and HIGH TRIM functions that allow you to make adjustments to achieve the ideal sound for any environment, such as reducing the unneeded, exaggerated low-end that can often occur when speakers are placed next to walls.

Inputs And Controls To Fit Any Use Case
The rear panel of the HS3 is equipped with combination XLR/TRS phone, RCA, and stereo mini connectors, allowing you to connect to a wide range of professional and consumer equipment such as computers, audio interfaces, audio mixers, and electric instruments. The most commonly used features—power button, volume knob, and headphone connector—are located in the front for easy access.

Compact And Portable
The compact size of the HS3 was made possible thanks to the highly efficient class-D amp. Using one amp for two speakers has enabled us to both reduce the weight of the speakers and simplify the cable connections. They take up little space even in a small bedroom studio, and are easy to take with you on the road.
