Summary: I was looking for a quality set of bluetooth headphones for the holidays, and I almost gave up hope given my current budget ($150) until I found the Harman Kardon BTs on ShopHQ for $99. These headphones retail on Amazon and other sites for nearly twice as much, so as soon I saw them...I ordered them.
Summary: I have used everything under the sun. For over the ear, I have used Sony, Sennheiser, and Logitech. For Bluetooth options I have used Motorola, Blue Ant, Bose, Jaybirds, and Jawbone. For a one ear solution, I highly recommend the Bose Series 2. But when you want a fuller audio experience at the computer, listening to music at home, watching TV while the family is sleeping, or on the go I highly recommend these. The Bluetooth option is just a bonus.
Pros: Full music range, especially when you tweak the EQ to get it right where you want it. Option of plug in or Bluetooth. Nice looking and comfortable. Competitively priced, especially when on sale. The carrying case is good for protecting your investment.
Cons: Only charge by USB. Would be better if it came with a charging cradle or a wall charge option included.
Move over Beats, there's a new kid that's kicking you to the curb!

Summary: The first song I played was "Nothing Lasts Forever" by Maroon 5 and I was hooked! Then I played "Won't Go Home Without You". The snap of the drum to the empty bottle hit, rang crisp and clear. The mids were well-defined and the highs rode on air all the way through. Bass is hard and thumps, but not to where it crashes into anything. Vocals were situated perfectly so as not to be stepped on by the busy sounds around it.
Summary: For the price I paid you will not find a better sounding or better built headphone. They are comfortable and come with an additional larger headband. The only thing I don't like is the lack of a wall charger. You have to plug it into a USB port on your device.
Summary: I just took back the ClarityOne W102's and got these. I decided to go Bluetooth to avoid cable damage (ClarityOne's gave me a bad vibe about the cable). I was not aware that the cable comes off of the Classics as well, until now, but no cable is great. Of course Bluetooth sounds worse than cabled...and cabled sounds worse than cabled with an amp, but plenty good for on the go.
