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
10 December 2013
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.
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.
