"Flat response, but lacks sparkle"
zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I purchased these at the same time that I purchased the Yamaha HS8 monitors. My goal was to be able to get a monitor station and be able to switch between the 8 inch monitor and the dual 6 inch to validate my mix. For starters, I find the range of response between the two to be very close. The highs and the lows are very consistent across both.The primary difference between the two is in clarity. The Yamaha HS8 monitors have more clarity than the E66. In comparing the 2, the E66 sound like you draped a light towel over the speaker box. Since the E66 arrived prior to the HS8, I didn't notice the difference until the HS8 arrived.I think they are a great choice if your solely going to use these for music. However, if you have a need for clarity (spoken word, vocals, vice over) and articulation I would recommend the HS8.There were some issues with the final fit and finish, but nothing really noticeable when you set them up.
