KH310 Successor? Studio Monitors

KH310 Successor?

So it's been almost 4 years since the KH310 were announced.. and another 4 years back and the o300 were announced. Surely we would be expecting the next version of the KH310 to be announced in the coming quarter.

Would anyone have any particular information as to whether these would be coming in the next few months/any rumours?

I say this as I'm about to pull the trigger on the KH310 in the coming months and was wondering if anyone had any information as to whether should hold off or consider something else all together?

For this last part (I write DnB and need good low frequency coverage - down to 35z roughly). My budget is £2500-3000

Thanks,

The KH 0300 existed long before 2008. Maybe that's around the time Neumann absorbed the Klein & Hummel brand. I'll make an educated guess and say you won't see a 310 successor for 7-10 years. They are excellent especially in this price range, so there isn't a huge need IMHO.

I've got 2004 after a few hours of internet searching! Thanks for your input I'll have no need to hold off now!

Me too would assume, that the KH310 speakers will be on the market for longer than 10 years. So don´t expect a sucessor to be announced before 2024, which is model year no.11 for the KH310s

OP chiming in here... bought mine at the beginning of 2017 and they've been fantastic - despite being out of the country for 9 months and not using them I have nothing negative to say about them. Paired with my Audeze LCD-X headphones my monitoring situation is pretty much perfect!

(an spl phonitor mini, a kh805 sub and you'd be even closer to paradise...)

Cheers! I can't decide if I want a sub for them or not as they already go pretty low!

it's not that they don't go low enough, it's that one can never have enough bass! :-)

seriously now: some folks do not want a sub, others (including me) wouldn't wanna mix/master without a sub (or even multiple subs) - things become a little bit more difficulte to integrate though (so i'm using external dsp - another topic that can get you anywhere between heaven and hell).
