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: A noise-canceling model that doesn't sound like one

26 July 2013
  • Summary: While they may not be quite as comfortable as Bose's ultrapopular QC 15 headphones, the Harman Kardon NCs offer slightly better sound and have a built-in rechargeable battery to power the active noise-cancellation circuitry.
  • Pros: Unique design; excellent fit and finish; impressive sound quality for a noise-canceling headphones; built-in rechargeable battery to power the noise cancellation; fold flat (a nice carrying case is included); work without the noise cancellation on (when the battery dies, they keep playing); include Apple-friendly inline remote and microphone.
  • Cons: Fairly pricey; the inline remote and microphone won't work with many non-Apple smartphones and tablets; the battery charging cable is not a standard Micro-USB cable.

Harman Kardon NC Headphones Review

19 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. They've done their job at pleasing our ears, our tasteful appetite for good design and even our wallet. So how does it get any better than this?

Harman Kardon NC

15 May 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. Harman Kardon provides two different sizes of headbands, so you can choose the one that better fits your head.
  • 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. Direkt enttäuscht sind wir vom Klangbild des Harman Kardon nicht, aber bei der Preisgestaltung hätten wir uns einfach mehr Wow-Momente gewünscht. Wir vergeben 4 von 5 Sternen.
  • 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
