Connecting Keyboard Phones/Out To 2 Studio Monitors (TRS ins)

Hi all, I am experiencing some confusion with this setup.

My digital keyboard has one phones/out.

I would've assumed that if I had to split the phones/out from keyboard to two monitors that I would need a Y cable (1 TRS to 2 TS).

However my Yamaha HS7 monitors accept 1/4 TRS inputs.

So what would be the right connectors for the 2 monitors to my keyboard?

Your initial thought is correct; the splitter cable, and plug the two TS plugs into the two monitor's TRS jacks. The ring and sleeve will both connect to the sleeve of the TS plug, and you'll feed the balanced input with an unbalanced signal, and stuff will work.

Thanks DrewE! I just really did not know if doing that was ok or would work well.
