JBL LSR305 is a studio monitor speaker featuring increased HF detail. What that means, you can experience much greater details in every depth and ambience in your recordings compared to the other speakers in the class. Even in a dense mix, you can still hear every subtle detail of the audio file. The product is surprisingly room-friendly and capable of delivering neutral audio no matter how your room’s acoustic is designed, thanks to its sophisticated broad sweet spot technology. It has 82 Watts of total amplification, 43 – 24,000 Hz of frequency response range, lighter weight than Yamaha HS5 but slightly bigger dimensions.
On the other hand, Yamaha HS5 has slightly smaller size but heavier weight, compared to JBL LSR305. This speaker is about more control over your audio. The XLR and TRS inputs both accept balanced and unbalanced signals for your consideration, like the signals from mixers, keyboards, and audio interfaces, as opposed to JBL LSR305’s only balanced inputs. This speaker provides 70 Watts of total power amplification, lower than its contender here, but the frequency response range is different: 54 – 30,000 kHz. As you can see, this speaker has a higher edge so that it may provide more presence and clarity in vocals. Though, the lower edge is not as deep as its contender. The main features in Yamaha HS5 are the Room Control and High Trim response control. The room control will help you in attenuating unnatural low-frequency sounds that often occur when the speaker is placed beside walls. The High Trim allows more handling on the high-frequency.
