Ultra-clear Studio Monitors from NeumannWhen Neumann announced its intention to incorporate the Klein + Hummel studio monitor range in early 2010, the buzz was huge, the implications serious, and the result fantastic! The first of a series, Neumann's KH 120 nearfield studio monitor demonstrates both the amazing sound quality K&H are known for, and the impeccable build standards you can expect from Neumann. Highlights of the KH 120 include a Mathematically Modeled Dispersion (MMD) waveguide, which produces an absolutely huge sweet spot, as well as flexible acoustical controls, and all-analog Class AB amplifiers. Low-frequency drivers made of powerful and lightweight titanium mesh reduces distortion while providing exquisite mid- and high-frequency reproduction. These drivers sport a sandwich cone design, which further dampens breakup and reduces low-frequency distortion.

Unforgiving of a bad mix
by Adam from Seattle, WAWhen I first set these speakers up, my first reaction was, "Ugh! I paid $1400 for THIS??" They had muddy low-mids, very congested midrange, but pretty decent treble. The vocals in the song sounded ... read more [+]shrill, and the singer sounded out of breath. In short, they sounded worse than some cheap Radio Shack speakers. Then it occurred to me that maybe Kelly Clarkson wasn't proper material to evaluate these speakers with.

I queued up a recording of a jazz trio that I knew to be a full, sparse mix. The music leapt from the speakers; the bass was full, cymbals shone through, and the sound stage was immense. Still, the lower-mids were muddy. I fiddled with the EQ switches on the back and cleaned that up somewhat.
I then pulled up one of my own sessions; a very sparse, just-for-giggles song that had one acoustic guitar, drums, a lead female vocal, and backing female vocals. The singer's dynamics were very broad, such that I used both automated fader moves AND compression to make them more consistent. Still, listening on these Neumann speakers, I kept finding myself turning the monitors down at one portion of the song. So I swept and EQ notch around and found a problem frequency. I beefed up the kick a bit, and did some other final tweaks. I listened back on a more full-range source with which I'm intimately familar: my Sony 7506 headphones. The mix sounded HUGE! Big, full sound on the kick, nothing annoying in the drums, vocal sitting right where it should and no more shrillness!
These speakers reveal every little mistake you made in your mix. If these speakers aren't sounding good to you, it's the source material. Note: These never sound like a high-end hifi speaker. They're not supposed to. They are supposed to be completely neutral and revealing, and they do that job very well. close [-]
An excellent choice!
by Robert L. Smith from New York CityTook a chance on buying these monitors without hearing them first. My sales engineer knew my listening taste and it proved to be a good move. Needed something quickly to replace my old Event 20/20's. ... read more [+]They are very different from the Events, but in a good way. Everything about them I love.The mid-range is stunning. Very detailed. Low end is excellent. Much more than you would think from a 5.25" driver. They are a little darker than most monitors, but once you get used to them they are nice. The selectable eq switches on the back cover every listening setup. To summarize, great mixes sound amazing on these monitors. Anything less than do not sound good. Which is really what you want from a studio monitor close [-]

These speakers sound awesome! The Neumann KH120 monitors will not disappoint. They sound nice and balanced with a tight low end.
