This is the best monitor I can think of that that price range! Sounds amazing, my mixes translate really well, it have an excellent stereo image, they are really revealing.
It have some really nice features, such as frequency cut, xlr and trs input (that is amazing for home studio guys who usually use maudio interfaces)...
Pretty easy to use, it is almost turn it on and listen.
NOTE: Everything I'm saying is based on listening to them on a well treated room with mopad under them!
So, why I gave it a seven on the sound quality ?
Well, it is because it get harsh when you turn the volume up. Sometimes I like, and it is needed to mix at loud volumes, but, if you do that on the HS50, it can get a bit harsh... Just like the guy before my stated.
About the bass, it is cool if you room is treated, if it is not, then the bass will probably sound boomy and will lack in definition (but I think every monitor would have a bad bass sounding in a not treated room)...
Conclusion: AWESOME for the price. No doubt it is my first choice for home studio if you want to save money.
