Harman Kardon Soho headphones

Channel5
4 October 2014
  • Summary: The Harman Kardon Soho headphones certainly have a distinctive look, but unless you’re especially taken with the square shape, they’re not worth the price. They’re not especially functional, and they’re far too fiddly to actually be portable - you’re better off with a pair of in-ears on the go instead. As it is, these are more of a conversation piece than an accessory to improve your tunes.

Harman Kardon's Soho-I: Small and swanky on-ear headphones

CNET
20 February 2014
  • Summary: The Harman Kardon Soho-I headphones are appealing if you're looking for a compact on-ear model, but they do have a few shortcomings.
  • Pros: The Harman Kardon Soho-I are stylish, compact on-ear headphones that are relatively comfortable, fold up, and offer strong performance for their size. The headphone cord is detachable and replaceable and the headphones come with an Apple-friendly remote/microphone (Soho-I) or universal remote (Soho-A) for making cell phone calls.
  • Cons: The hard clamshell case is ill-suited to the headphones' compact design and hard to use; the headphones let in a fair amount of external sound; could sound better for a $200 model.

Harman Kardon Soho Headphones Offers Sophisticated Design in a Small Package: Review

Chip Chick
26 December 2013
  • Summary: The Harman Kardon Soho headphones offer a sleek and sophisticated look that is perfect for that guy or gal on the go who doesn’t want an imposing pair of headphones on their ears. It’s small design will appeal to those that are tired of the clunky huge headphones, and they really do seem a bit more inclined towards being feminine. They are also easy to throw into a bag, and shove into that seat pocket on an airplane.
  • Pros: Solid build quality. Comfortable. Perfect for those looking for smaller headphones to grab and go.
  • Cons: Sound experience could be richer and more balanced. Those with larger heads, might want to steer clear of these and look at other

Harman Kardon Soho-I

PC Magazine
24 December 2013
  • Conclusion: Whether the Harman Kardon Soho-I's sound signature is right for you will come down to personal taste. But there's no denying the power or thoughtful design of this on-ear headphone pair.
  • Pros: Powerful bass response and quality overall audio performance. Comfortable fit. Thinnest carrying case we've seen, making this an ideal travel headphone pair.
  • Cons: Could use more high-mid presence and crispness. Doesn't include many accessories.

  • Summary: The basics We all know Harman Kardon does top notch high fidelity - but it’s usually for a high price. The Harman Kardon Soho headphones aim to change that up however, bringing in great sound quality at an (almost affordable) £150 pricepoint - and portability to boot courtesy of a clever folding system. Do the 30mm drivers inside these striking looking cans do the job? We donned a pair to find out.
  • Pros: For a relatively frail pair of over-ears, the Harman Kardon Soho pack quite a punch with a 16Hz-20kHz frequency response. Mids sounds warm and encompassing, but it’s the bass especially that impresses, with hefty, crisp reproduction of the lows (Do be aware though that this makes them much better suited to listening to music - we found that the bass tended to magnify unnecessary noises in online videos). Not only do the Soho headphones sound great, but they keep the m...
  • Cons: Harman Kardon is known for its design chops, but we’re not convinced about the Soho’s aesthetics, not by a long shot. The straight lines, felt and pastel colours all combine to create a 70s vibe - these look like something you’d see on the coffee table of a Danish shipping magnate’s hillside concrete home on stilts, especially the disgusting muddy brown model (trust us, go for the black or white). If that’s what you’re into, that’s no bad thing of course, though we ca...

Harman Kardon Soho

CNET
17 December 2013
  • Conclusion: Avec son design sobre et élegant fait d'acier et de cuir, le Soho de Harman Kardon se distingue sans se faire remarquer. Loin des casques audio tape à l'oeil, il délivre un excellent son au vu de son format très compact.
  • Pros: compact, élégant, confortable, pliable, bonnes performances pour sa taille, cordon amovible et remplaçable, version iOS et standard.
  • Cons: étui peut être un peu trop volumineux, manque d'isolation qui peut être rédhibitoire pour certains.
