Best Nearfield Monitors I ever heard and used. Buyers tip for smaller Studios.
Shitapple, 02.09.2019
I owned and tested a few Monitors before I ended up with the Neumanns.

In comparsion to the following (which I have tested in the studio and at Thomann direct comparision with dBA Meter), the Neumanns has the best linear sound, best stereo width and best depth.

I compared to:

- Yamaha HS80: Way to much muddy lowend for small rooms, due to the 8 inch woofer. Muddy not so present mids and highs.
- Adam A7X: Very imposant for listening but not that useable for long sessions because of the harsh and over time to loud and anoying highs. Also the bass is not so defined and a bit too less for me.
- Eve Audio SC7: Its basically the A7X with better encoders and andjustments. Best thing here is the highs are not so agressive like the A7X once. But the bass is very strong and room filling. Too much for a small room to mix correctly. No Sub needed in bigger rooms.

And the end I spend a bit more money and picked the Neumann KH120A.

The only downcase is that you need to use it with a subwoofer if you want to mix freq. under 55-60Hz.
I not went with the sub I will mix the sub freq. with my Beyerdynamics DT770. Which is much cheaper than the Neumann sub and will not cause trouble with my neighbours.

The only sub which in my opinion is working well with the KH 120As is the Neumann KH800 or 750. I tested this for over 2 hours in house by Thomann and the even the Sub10 is not accurate enough with the KH120 A together. If you have the money spend it for the Neumann sub in addition ;) Only afterwards I would go for a Moog synth or other expensive hardware.

But don't get me wrong the bass is excellent, well balanced and very accurate but only until 50 Hz or so.

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.

that monitors are extremely good for this price, small speaker but Deep bass and detail in all spectrum.
I'm very happy to purchased them after long time using KRK and Yamaha HS series. This one is different! what you hear is will be same on the other systems even with earbuds translation is quite same. so to produce or mix on this ones is pure joy and not makes your ears tired. but if you like to hear loud sound KH120 Had not go to high on levels but you don't need that much level when you mixing or producing.
