Which less than 1/2 Price monitors to get?

Hey everyone, I need some advice. I just became a college student, and I took my pair of yamaha HS80Ms to college with me along with my mobile recording setup. I will soon be having a session back at home though, and I realize I'm going to need a second pair of monitors for home. Should I get a second pair of the Yams(what I'm used to) for $300? Or should I invest in something like the JBL LSR4328Ps for $700? Will there really be THAT much of a difference? I can also get the LSR4326Ps for $550, and maybe get a sub later? I'm leaning towards the HS80Ms for the price, cause I'm in college and as such, am poor.

My listening room at home is fully treated, but I don't have any room treatment in my dorm at school. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks a lot,
-Jared

Equator Audio D5's

Consider the new Equator Audio D5's.

Pretty impressive affordable near-field.

If you can get a pair of HS80m's for $300 do it. They are more than serviceable, you are used to them (although the treated /untreated environment will provide some issues) and you'll need to spend 4x that to get something significantly better imo.
