Harman Kardon BT

 

The cool design of the Harman Kardon BT is paired with excellent performance, making it a compelling addition to the crowded Bluetooth headphone field.

Powerful Bluetooth wireless audio performance is clean, with rich lows. Comfortable fit. Beautiful leather carrying pouch, extra headband, and an audio cable for wired listening are included. Includes microphone and on-ear controls for mobile devices

Could use a bit more high-mid presence, and the bass-heavy sound signature isn't for purists

Harman Kardon's latest headphones have a distinct look that, paired with metallic and leather accents, practically screams luxury. The good news is that the $249.95 (direct) price tag for the Bluetooth-streaming Harman Kardon BT is not nearly as...

Harman Kardon's BT headphones deliver clean sound

 

While its design may not be for everyone, the Harman Kardon BT is one of the best-sounding Bluetooth headphones available.

Unique design; excellent fit and finish; impressive sound quality for Bluetooth headphones; built-in rechargeable battery offers decent battery life (12 hours); the Harman Kardon BT fold flat (a nice carrying case is included); works well as cellphone...

A bit bulky for mobile headphones; the battery charging cable is not a standard Micro-USB cable

Good sound quality for Bluetooth Long battery life Comfortable for most users Passive noise reduction

Some connectivity problems Heavy and bulky

Harman Kardon BT

 

Sound quality is exceptional. The BT has arguably the best Bluetooth streaming quality in its class. Balanced lows and mids make everything from Swedish House Mafia to Lindsey Stirling to Apocalyptica sound simply fantastic: you get a crisp punch with...

Harman Kardon BT Bluetooth Headphone Review

 

The audio quality over Bluetooth is basically as amazing over wired, though there's an occasional nanosecond cutout. The BT's have a very warm sound. The bass is awesome. It's not overdone, but you can really feel it. The overall audio reproduction is...

Bluetooth, Built-in Mic and Audio Controls work well, Great bass, Long battery, Audio passthrough cable, USB-rechargeable, Included carrying case, Great build quality and durability

Can hear any physical touch to the cable or headphone body. Independent volume from device, Controls/Mic don’t work when wired in and propriety charging cable. Ear cups may be to big for smaller heads

Harman Kardon did an awesome job at building a set of headphones that appeal to today’s tech enthusiasts: distinguished design, Bluetooth with built-in audio controls and mic, long battery life with optional pass-through cable, and great sound. They’re...
