When selecting studio reference monitors for audio mixing and music production, one consideration takes precedence above all others – accuracy.  Many manufacturers seek to enhance the sound of their monitors to make them SOUND impressive… however, these Yahama studio monitors are designed to achieve the best possible mix by ensuring that the sound is true t the original.  That’s what makes the HS Series by Yamaha so great.  

The Yahama HS Series is available in 3 different sizes:  HS5, HS6.5, and HS8. I personally have the HS8, and can attest to their signature quality and sound accuracy.  

If the price of the Yamaha’s HS is a bit too high for your liking, check out the PreSonus Eris E3.5 – 3.5″ Professional Monitors.  These are a more affordable alternative.

Bundles like these give you everything you’ll need to start flying and traveling with your drone, such as: a landing pad, a cleaning kit, a travel bag, extra propellers, and extra batteries!  And believe me, you’re going to want more than 1 battery.
