Harman Kardon CL

 

Harman Kardon's CL headphones sound as good as they look, but they have serious competition in the $200 price range.

Strong audio performance with rich bass and crisp highs. Includes removable headbands in various sizes for secure fit. Integrated controls for iOS devices. Detachable, replaceable cable. Classy carrying pouch

Earcups can be slightly uncomfortable over long listening periods. Very minor distortion on some deep bass tracks at top volume

Rich acoustics. Sounds amazing when listening to Jazz, easily listening, or instrumentals. Solid design that looks expensive. Ear cups are very comfortable and only get more-so over time

Headband starts to squeeze your head after a several hours of listening

Harman Kardon CL Headphones Review

 

The brand Harman Kardon comes to mind when you think home theatres and high-end audio systems. They aren't really known for making headphones, but the Harman International Industries already has a brand called AKG under its belt that specialises in the...
