I've been familiar with Yamaha's NS10ms since the early 1990s when I first started to use pro studios. It was a well established fact back then (and still is) that 10ms are more commonly used in studios throughout the world than any other studio monitor. It isn't a particularly nice sounding speaker, and its bass response only works when you've got a very well tuned room, however it's brutally honest in the mid-range and I wouldn't be happy mixing without them. There isn't a mix that I haven't used them for in the last five years, in the process I've blown the bass drivers about a dozen times which might be a world record.
