Summary: Everything about the Harman Kardon CL exudes understated class - the packaging, the pleather carrying case, the old-school design, and finally the matter black housing with steel trimming - it's all pure visual delight. Put them on and you're transported into a world of exceptional aural detail. The sound signature is on the brighter side, and the highs are very well defined. The bass will surprise you with lows being both distinct, and hard hitting.
Pros: Rich audio, Well defined bass, Tangle resistant detachable cable, Comfortable
Summary: If you’re looking for a pair of high-performance headphones, then you’ll find the Harman Kardon CL to be decent, although we think you can find headphones that offer better performance for this kind of price. The Harman Kardon CL headphones sell for Rs. 9,990, which is a tad bit expensive for the kind of features and performance being offered.
Summary: The Harman Kardon CL Headphones are a classic addition to any headphone collection. It won’t break the bank too much, and for a change, you get a pair of headphones that actually look a lot more expensive than what they cost. Now that is a switch! For those that have a much more sophisticated ear and like their Jazz straight-up with a side of Billie Holiday, than the CL’s are perfect for you.
Pros: Rich acoustics. Sounds amazing when listening to Jazz, easily listening, or instrumentals. Solid design that looks expensive. Ear cups are very comfortable and only get more-so over time.
Cons: Headband starts to squeeze your head after a several hours of listening.
Conclusion: The Harman/Kardon CL is an extremely well-designed headset that had us hooked from the start. Keeping one foot in the past, and one in the future, it’s classic-yet-modern styling is perfectly complimented by its outstanding sonic performance and comfort. We took very minor issue with a lack of depth and bright midrange response.
Excerpt: Harman Kardon, a successful and sought-after name in the audio industry to say the least. The company is better known for having AKG and JBL under its audio belt as well as for its magnitude of outstanding household and desktop speakers, most notably the SoundSticks speakers which are one of the most iconic set of computer speakers ever to be made at a reasonable price. Harman Kardon has recently released it's first ever line of headphones under the Harman/Kardon name.
Conclusion: Harman Kardon's CL headphones sound as good as they look, but they have serious competition in the $200 price range.
Pros: Strong audio performance with rich bass and crisp highs. Includes removable headbands in various sizes for secure fit. Integrated controls for iOS devices. Detachable, replaceable cable. Classy carrying pouch.
Cons: Earcups can be slightly uncomfortable over long listening periods. Very minor distortion on some deep bass tracks at top volume.
Summary: Harman Kardon’s CLs tick all the right boxes for a pair of on-the-go headphones. All audio - be it music, movies or audiobooks - are played with gusto, while the design keeps extraneous perversions out and your music private. The cups do sit too snug over long sessions, but it’s preferable over stiff bands.
Pros: Proficient sound, Excellent design, Inline controls for Apple devices
Summary: I 1953 ble Harman Kardon grunnlagt av Dr. Sidney Harman og Bernard Kardon, og til tross for at vi har sett fødselen til mange audioprodukter fra dette samarbeidet måtte man vente til 2012 før den første hodetelefonen så dagens lys.
