Tinny sound got you down? If you’re in the market for a new pair of headphones, the CL on-ears by Harman Kardon are definitely worth a listen.
First of all, the CL series do not look like most other headphones available today. The original design is not only easy on the eyes but also extremely comfortable. With two sizes available and included with every pair, Harman Kardon have made sure that even those of us blessed with huge heads have access to quality sound. Rotating earpieces again add to the comfort level while only soft leather touches the listener’s ears.
As for the sound, the on-ear design actually cancels out ambient noise fairly well, a feat many headphones struggle to achieve. The levels are pretty balanced and although these headphones are slightly bass heavy, they’re not excessive like many other casual listening headphones, making them ideal for a range of music genres.
Built for seamless use with Apple products, playback and volume control can all be done while your phone stays in your pocket thanks to the cable remote.
One thing that could be improved is the creaking sound you hear whenever the top metal band is bumped, however this usually only occurs when putting the headphones on and is much less audible if bumped when there’s music playing.
On top of the unique look, impressive sound quality and super comfort level, the Harman Kardon CL headphones fold flat and come with a very suave travel pouch for your next adventure.
