  • Summary: Harman Kardon NC headphones don’t neglect sound quality in favor of sound cancellation. For noise-reduction headphones, these are a little on the heavy side, but the long lasting battery and passive play option still qualify them as some of the best noise-cancelling headphones.
  • Pros: The built-in battery is easy to charge, lasts for 40 hours and even with a dead battery you can still listen in passive mode.
  • Cons: Even though they’re very stylish and well made, these noise-blocking headphones weigh 11.2 ounces, which is a lot of additional weight for your ears.

Harman/Kardon NC Headphones

Geek Beat
24 June 2014
  • Excerpt: For the past several months, I’ve been using the Harman/Kardon NC Headphones as my primary monitors for video editing and I haven’t looked back.  Out of all the headphones I have at my disposal at the Geek Beat studios, these are by far the most comfortable headphones I’ve used to date.

Harman Kardon NC Headphones Review

25 April 2013
  • Excerpt: When Harman Kardon introduced its first line of consumer headphones last year we marveled their high-end, unparalleled aesthetics and appreciated the fine audio quality that came with it all. In many ways Harman Kardon's CL Classic headphones were and still are a trowback of modern sophistication.

Harman Kardon NC

30 August 2013
  • Excerpt: Harman Kardon’s $326.99 NC features both a simple name and a minimalist design. If you’re a fan of Apple’s hardware, you’ll appreciate the look of the NC. Thin, metal trim surrounds rectangular black earcups, which are connected by a sleek metal headband.
  • Pros: Good-looking; two different sizes of headband
  • Cons: Not very portable or travel friendly; disappointing sound quality

  • Excerpt: Grundsätzlich ist der NC etwas dunkel abgestimmt, trotzdem ist sein Klangbild weiterhin als neutral zu bezeichnen. Audiophile Highlights konnten wir nicht vorfinden. Vor allem wenn man den Preis im Hinterkopf behält, ist das eine gute Performance, mehr aber auch nicht.
  • Pros: Hoher Tragekomfort, Erstklassige Verarbeitung, Stylishes Design, Kopfhörer verfügt über ein Mikrofon, Fernbedienung integriert, Abnehmbares Kabel, Noise Cancelling verfügbar, Mit iOS (iPhone, iPod, iPad) kompatibel
  • Cons: Relativ teures Modell, Keine Farbauswahl verfügbar
