A worthwhile investment!!
Angelface 28.12.2022
I eagerly awaited this colour Black. Thomann were brilliant and one of the 1st to stock them (based on my research)!

I was really impressed with how they were packaged. And most importantly the headphones look great and build quality is superb!

I am left handed so the right side headphone lead is preferable for me. Unlike with the silver (original NDH 20) option, only one cable is supplied which is straight cable. Whilst that is still my preference to use, I would however have liked the coiled option to be included (especially at this price point). The ear cups even though they are circular are comfortable for me, but may not be the case for those with larger ears. The headphones clamp tightly on my head and surprisingly also are very comfortable when wearing glasses…..Now to how do they sound?!! Transparent and high frequencies were a little harsh upon first listen, but I put this down to previous headphones HD650 being much more subtle in the higher register. Bass is there but again less then I am used to, but I like this for mixing as they are close to that of the Neumann KH80’s, so it’s easy to work with them both, without nothing drastic changing on either option. I did also try these with Sonarworks ID with which work great in combination with HD650, but really didn’t like using it with the NDH20, as it removed any low end and made higher frequencies even more harsher and abrasive.

Overall, I am happy with my purchase. They lose a point for not including coiled cable as well as flimsy storage pouch-would have liked something a little more robust. That being said these headphones really do compliment my workflow and allow me to trust my mixes when working with them.


Good but not great

The sound is nowhere near flat. The bass is super hyped and there is a weird peak around 3-4k. These factors make the headphones unsuitable for mixing/mastering purposes, and also a little bit fatiguing. I personally don't find them enjoyable either, even just for sitting down and listening to music. They are good but for the price, I definitely expected more. My favorite headphones (Sennheiser HD600s) cost half the price and deliver better in almost every aspect. Neumanns have better imaging and lower bass extension (which is too much for my taste). So if you're a bass head go for it, but if you listen to music with distorted guitars, be aware.

The comfort is surprisingly bad. The headphones are very heavy and the headband is quite hard. After an hour you will feel like taking a break. The ear cups are big enough but I wish they were oval shape, rather than round.

Overall, its a pretty good closed back headphones. If you are restricted to closed backs, this will probably be a great choice. But if you can open backs, there are much better options out there for cheaper prices.

In general, the headphones sound very nice although I wish they had a better low-frequency range. Regarding comfort, I have to say is not as good as I hoped for. The earing covers slide from their place from time to time and is very annoying to put them back in their place.

Exzellenter Kopfhörer, vor allem ...
Freund_Blase 01.10.2022
wenn man die KH120 als Monitore hat.

Versteht mich nicht falsch, auch ohne die Monitore machen die Kopfhörer einen hervorragenden Job. Sie sitzen bequem, trotz des Gewichts, sie sind absolut tadellos verarbeitet und der Sound ist so präzise, wie ich es noch nie vorher gehört habe. Jede kleine Veränderung am Mix stellen diese Kopfhörer direkt dar.

Sie haben einen sehr linearen Klang, manch einer würde sagen, Sie wummern sehr, weil sie untenrum ebenso stark klingen, wie obenrum präzise. Aber bei aller Stärke sind sie nie ungenau, ich kann immer genau hören, wo etwas brummt, überschneidet oder unsauber klingt.

Warum nun sind Sie eine tolle Ergänzung zum KH120 (oder die KH120 eine tolle Ergänzung zu diesen Kopfhörern) ?

Weil Frequenzgang, die Charakteristik der Wiedergabe, fast identisch ist. Mische ich etwa auf den Kopfhörern, kann ich mir sicher sein, dass auf den Monitoren nichts überspitzt oder zu unterschwellig wird, ohne das ich es möchte. Genauso geht es auch anders herum. Kann ich aus verschiedenen Gründen nicht über die Monitore mischen, dann sind es die Kopfhörer, die mir genau zeigen, wie es auf den Monitoren klingen würde, addiert mit etwas mehr Tiefen. Das bringt mir vor allem Kontrolle im Low-End, wenn ich keinen Subwoofer habe.

Die Stereobühne ist auf Grund der geschlossenen Bauweise nicht so weittragend wie bei den DT990 oder NDh 30, aber dafür dringt absolut kein Geräusch nach aussen oder nach innen. Für mich deutlich wichtiger, das Panorama mische im Feintuning über die Monitore.

Sie kosten zwar etwas, aber das Geld ist es in jedem Fall wert - egal, ob KH120 vorhanden sind oder nicht.
