Genius HS-200 Gold In-Ear Headset


I love listening to music, and I will also listen to just about any kind of music at least once. When I listen to music I demand good quality sound. When I first looked at the packaging, I thought, the Genius HS-200 looked clean and professional...

Reasonable Price at $20.00 ; Amazing sound quality ; In-line control unit for mic/volume/call answer and hang up button ; Gold tipped connector ; Slightly stronger cord ; Great comfort

Control unit is a little fragile ; Mic quality is decent

The Genius HS-Gold In-Ear Headset and its superior sound quality makes it great for listening to music and phone calls. It has has easily replaced my Philips ear buds on that alone. The great quality of sound far out-performs other more expensive...

Great Speakers


I love my new sound sticks. They look really cool and sound great. Use with my computer and I like them as much as my Monsoon speakers I had to replace when damaged in move.

Harman Kardon HS200


Great sound and it looks beautiful, while not taking up too much space.

Bit of a difficulty with setting up from manual.

Product Specifications

Designed to provide all the excitement and detail of movie soundtracks and every nuance of musical selections using only one pair of stereo loudspeakers and a subwoofer, the HS 200 is truly a multichannel system for the new millennium. The HS 200 is among the most versatile home cinema systems available, incorporating an Audio Video Controller, a DVD player and a complete 2.1 loudspeaker system in one complete system solution. The Dolby Virtual Speaker surround modes for Matrix surround-encoded or stereo recordings are available for use with sources such as CD, VCR, TV broadcasts and the system's own FM tuner. To enable you to get the maximum quality from DVDs, the HS 200 is equipped with the latest in design techniques, including advanced 10-bit video digital-to-analog converters (DAC) and Video (composite), S-Video and RGB video (RGB via SCART) outputs, to ensure that you get all the quality inherent in today's DVD medium. For optimum playback of NTSC and PAL DVD with compatible high-definition display devices, the HS 200 is equipped with an HDMI output and progressive scan component video outputs. Along with conventional Video and CD audio discs, the HS 200 is also compatible with MP3, CD-R and CD-RW as well as DivX and VCD discs. As portable USB devices increase in popularity, Harman Kardon's HS 200 is among the first integrated home theater system that allows mobile interconnectivity by playing compatible music or image files from portable devices via two USB On-The-Go inputs. A wide range of programming features makes it easy to program an evening's worth of entertainment. When playing DVDs, easy-to-understand on-screen menus and icons make it simple to change languages, soundtracks, subtitles or aspect ratio, while a parental-lock function enables you to control which discs may be viewed by younger members of the household.
