Harman Kardon Soho-I ( White)


Harman Kardon, a relative newcomer to the headphones market, impressed us with its debut models, which include the CL (Classic) , BT (Bluetooth) , and NC (noise-canceling) . They're a good blend of unique styling, impressive sound, and a fairly...

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...

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.

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.

Harman Kardon Soho-I


And yet, compared with the B&W P3, the Soho sounds a little crisper on vocals, whereas the P3 delivers similar higher frequency response, and a more prominent focus on the lows and low-mids. These two headphones appear priced and designed to compete...

Powerful bass response and quality overall audio performance. Comfortable fit. Thinnest carrying case we've seen, making this an ideal travel headphone pair.

Could use more high-mid presence and crispness. Doesn't include many accessories.

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.

Tech Review: Harman Kardon Soho Headphones


Ultimately, the Soho headphones are a difficult product to recommend. They are one of the few headphones that are classy, and refined, in a market that is trending toward the overly flashy. They are built very well and can easily withstand a great deal...

Harman Kardon Soho On-Ear Headphones Review - TechWeLike


One would get these headphones mainly for sleek and discreet style. The compact size and non-flashy (unless you get the white model) design is great for those going for the mature look. They are very attractive. I would wear these on a day that it'd...

Harman Kardon Soho Review


Play it safe and try them on for size prior to purchase, or at least check the return policy. Due to their small size and narrow band, the Sohos can't offer every head the firmest fit. That said, if you want some of the best-looking design around, try...

Harman Kardon Soho Headphones Review


The Harman Kardon Soho are a pair of on-ear headphones that have clearly taken some design inspiration from the Bowers and Wilkins P3. Priced at �180, you can now actually buy them for closer to �80 on Amazon putting them into budget headphone realms....

Sleek, stylish design Comfortable ear cushions Folding design

Slightly tight fit Lacks clarity Poor noise isolation

The Harmon Kardon Soho are a pair of compact, good-looking headphones that lack the sophisticated sound quality to justify the price.

Harman Kardon Soho On-Ear Mini Headphones – Refined and Portable Performers


If you have been looking for on-ear headphones that don't feel like they were made for someone with a giant head and that won't start to hurt you after you've been wearing them for a few hours, the Harman Kardon Soho headphones definitely deserve a look.

Compact size; lovely to look at; not too weighty; they don’t hurt my ears (I can wear them all day); excellent sound; while they do block out some background noise, they don’t completely isolate me when wearing them; perfect for travel

The cable is not tangle-free; may be too tight for those with larger heads

Harman-Kardon SoHo Headphones Review


We have high expectations from the Harman-Kardon SoHo. Lucky for us, this compact headphone rose to the occasion and delivered exactly what it says on its box; Refined | Portable | Performance. The Soho has all the makings of a premium headphone. In...

Minimalist design • Compact and lightweight build • Remarkable sound performance • Wide soundstage

Price • Mediocre audio cable • Sound output is a bit on the soft side

The Soho by Harman Kardon


The $200 headphone market is now probably one of the toughest markets to come out on top. Just about every headphone maker worth their salt is trying to make this dollar mark their own. The Soho will have to take it's chances but its strong visual...

Harman Kardon’s Soho… ‘Ho, ho, ho!’


The Soho headphones incorporate an impressive 30 mm driver per ear cup that has a frequency response of 16Hz-20kHz . While determining which audio products are “better” can be subjective, it is objectively clear that these Harman Kardon headphones...
