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

With the Sohos, HK has designed a very good looking pair of cans that also deliver at their primary assignment, which is sound. They do an excellent job of handling Afro Beats and West Coast Rap–the specificity being smooth melodies and not heavy on...

Great Design + Bang for Buck

Sound (especially bass) could be better - In-line Remote is limited to certain models

They look great, are cheaper than the competition and are well built. The sound reproduction could be better, but at their price, You can't complain.

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

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...

Harman Kardon Soho Headphones Offers Sophisticated Design in a Small Package: Review


The Harman Kardon Soho headphones offer a sleek and sophisticated look that is perfect for that guy or gal on the go who doesn't want an imposing pair of headphones on their ears. It's small design will appeal to those that are tired of the clunky huge...

Solid build quality. Comfortable. Perfect for those looking for smaller headphones to grab and go.

Sound experience could be richer and more balanced. Those with larger heads, might want to steer clear of these and look at other Harman Kardon headphones.
