I just bought a pair of Yamaha HS5. After having them I saw they are ported monitors, not a closed cabinet but working below 50hz is not something I use to do. However I am curious to know if you can tell me based in your experience ┬┐Does the response below 50hz affect to the timbre of sounds I would play at 81hz or 256hz or 2khz? Like a guitar or a violin.

No, you can safely apply an 80Hz high-pass filter to a guitar or violin and not lose anything useful. Any subsonic information will just be mic noise, etc.
