Excellent project, craftmanship, sound performance

AriT, 07.02.2017
Extremely flat and revealing monitors, with a great spatial rendition, free from any trace of harshness in the high frequencies and no bloated low-mids like other compact speakers that try to sound bigger than their size.

Coming from Adam (A5X and A7X), which to my ears resulted a little too sizzling in the highs and also somewhat muddy in the bass, the definition offered by the Neumanns at all frequency ranges is a great step-up.

Like many other users have reported, the reproduction of the mids is very precise and balanced. What is even more impressive is the low end: although the KH120 have a smaller woofer and cabinet than the A7X, they go deeper down and provide a tight and well controlled bass with no boominess: that's a surprise indeed. Just to make clear, the Neumanns could surely benefit from a subwoofer if weight in the lowest octave is needed, but even without a sub, kick drums and basses are beautifully rendered with satisfying punch and articulation, more so than on other 7" and even 8" monitors that I've tried.

The craftmanship is very fine (made in Ireland), they are extremely well-built and everything oozes quality and great care (even the scotch tape used to seal the plastic bags protecting the speakers inside the box looks to be of superior quality!)

All in all, an excellent product. The price might seem on the high side among 5" woofer monitors, but considering that sound-wise they compete with bigger ones, and also keeping in mind the quality level and the EU manufacturing, these compact Neumanns have a great cost/performance ratio.

I purchased these speakers after an intensive reading and listening few models at the local studio equipment store. However, this model was not available for testing so the purchase was, to put it this way, "blind". I currently use them for music production straight from my macbook's jack output.

I'm delighted to say that it was a very good choice they look amazing and sound clear and transparent. They translate really good to other sound systems, the highs are clear and the lows as far as these speakers can go are accurate in my opinion. It's very easy to hear flawed mixes with them.

Two cons: I would liked them to have RCA connector (I knew that this was lacking before the purchase so I had the proper cables prepared). The second issue is rather cosmetic: the front lights are not in the same nuance, one is slightly darker (at least on my pair) so my OCD kicked in and I disabled the front lights alltogether.

I do recommend them together with Neumann's table stand, should you use them on a regular table: it's very easy to adjust the height of the speakers and they isolate the subsonics good enough.
