Neumann KH150 is a powerful, bi-amplified studio monitor with reference-class performance. It has a 6.5” woofer in a bass reflex cabinet, providing stunning low end, high SPL capability with undiminished clarity. DSP controlled electronics ensure linear phase response and allow for room-adaptive calibration via Neumann’s revolutionary MA1 Automatic Monitor Alignment.

What You Hear Is What You Get

KH150 follows the same philosophy as all Neumann studio monitors: highest linearity, lowest distortion, no colouration, and perfect adaptability to any acoustic environment. It allows you to hear every nuance of your tracks. Mixing becomes so much faster and easier, once the guesswork is over.

What differentiates the KH150 from its smaller siblings is its deeper bass response down to 39 Hz. The KH 150 is ideally suited to urban music, EDM, film scoring, and all styles that require extended low end and/or elevated listening levels. Thanks to powerful amplifiers (145 W/100 W) and sophisticated protection limiters, no clarity is lost even at high SPLs. KH150 works just as well for everything from rock to classical music, broadcast applications and voice-over work.

KH 150 has an exceptionally linear frequency response from 39 Hz to 21 kHz (±3 dB). Not only that…it also linearises the phase response, which translates to clear mids with astonishing transparency as well as extreme accuracy in the time domain: precise impulse reproduction and finely resolved reverbs. This is made possible by DSP controlled electronics which allow for sophisticated crossovers avoiding the phase distortion caused by analogue filters.

Tonal compatibility with other KH line studio monitors makes it possible to use the KH 150 in mixed setups e.g. in surround/immersive setups. For flexible connectivity the KH 150 features both analog and digital inputs.
