Harman Kardon AE

 

Harman Kardon's recent push into the earphone market brings us the in-canal AE earphones, which, at $149.95 (list) , are priced to compete with a very talented group that includes the Bowers & Wilkins C5 In-Ear Headphones and the Moshi Vortex Pro. The...

Quality audio performance with healthy bass response. Built-in iPhone controls and three-button remote. Excellent carrying case

Remote buttons are not well defined. Thin cable is somewhat rigid

Harman Kardon AE In-Ear Headphones

 

Harman Kardon's new headphones have aluminum-alloy bodies that match the look and texture of Apple's hardware. They're pretty, but the sound isn't.

Sleek, pretty and austere. All aluminum and black plastic — if you want some headphones to match your iPhone 5, look no further. Comfortable fit from both rubber tips and the Comply foam tips. Lots of bass from the 9-millimeter drivers

Sound is dark. Not enough detail in the high-end. Too heavy to wear while exercising. Expensive

Metal-bodied earphones - chunky design, chunky sound.

Robust aluminium outer ; Powerful bass

Non-removable cable ; Bass dominates sound ; Can sound congested

A bold entry to the high-end market, the Harman Kardon AE "Acoustically Enhanced" earphones have a design that's a few steps away from the norm. With thick cabling and aluminium-armoured earpieces, they feel tougher than the average too. However, the...
