Neumann KH 310 Stereo Pair by chrisdee
After having some trouble getting my KH120's to translate bass/lowend well it was time to look for new and bigger monitors. Enter the KH 310's!
I'm tempted to just write WOW and end the review with that.
But here is a short review :
As with the KH 120 the very first impression is kind of boring and flat. However first impression quickly passes when I start to eq and mix and hear how accurate the monitors are. They make the KH 120's top end sound a bit harsh and the bass/lowend lacking and struggling in comparison.
I'v read several other reviews of the KH 310 as being effortless. That's my impression aswell. They are never struggling with any frequencies or level. The width/soundstage is huge compared to the other monitors i've had. With some reverb and delay effects it sound like a surround system. I hear sounds coming from behind!
For my budget (hobbyist/purist) they are expensive, but from other reviews I'v read they are among the top 5 commercially available monitors you can buy today. And the others on the top 5 list cost two and three times as much. They originally cost $5500 here in Norway but I got them for $4750 factory new.
Still expensive but I'm happy with these
