Product Description

Product Description

Introducing the BTs, over-ear headphones that offer high-quality wireless music streaming from any Bluetooth-equipped device. Blending acoustics and aesthetics, Harman Kardon BT headphones embody the essence of "Beautiful Sound," while providing the un-tethered freedom and convenience of wireless music enjoyment.

Harman Kardon BT headphones with Bluetooth offer more than a musical escape. They let you escape from wires. They employ AAC and apt-X coding for the highest quality wireless audio streaming and incorporate a built-in microphone and playback buttons on one of the ear-cups. It's the tangle-free, hassle-free way to enjoy your music.

The USB-rechargeable BTs have a battery that lasts up to 12 hours. Unlike other Bluetooth headphones, even when the battery dies, BT headphones will still work when connected by the supplied bypass cable to a playback device.

They also feature a closed-back design that keeps outside noise out and keeps your listening experience for your ears only. Lightweight and comfortable, BT headphones let you take Beautiful Sound with you wherever you go.

From high-quality materials to exceptional acoustic performance, these new headphones reflect the Harmon Kardon commitment to innovative industrial design and uncompromising sound quality.

From the Manufacturer

Sophisticated, Modern Design

Harman Kardon BT headphones offer high-tech performance wrapped in an elegant package and interface. With their blend of sandblasted steel and black matte housings, the BTs’ design and function complement Apple products while reinforcing the sophisticated elegance of the Harman Kardon brand.

AAC and aptX Wireless Coding

BT headphones employ AAC (used by Apple) and aptX coding to ensure that it provides some of the best wireless audio performance possible from Bluetooth equipped devices.

Passive Playback Mode

Unlike other Bluetooth headphones, BTs let you enjoy continuous playback even when the battery dies.Just connect them to the playback device using a supplied bypass cable. This makes BTs ideal for enjoying in-flight entertainment systems.

Optimised Driver System

High-performance 1-5/8 inch (40 mm) drivers produce an excellent frequency response (16 Hz – 20 kHz), wide dynamic range and high sound-pressure levels. As a result, BT headphones deliver accurate sound and extended bass response.

Sonic Clarity and Accuracy Even at Low Volume Levels

The BTs’ acoustic engineering and passive noise reduction mean that you can hear music and other audio content clearly at low volume levels, so you can enjoy all the music definition without all the volume – and that’s safer for your ears.

User-Exchangeable Metal Bows and Self-Adjusting Housings

BT headphones come with two headband bows (small and large) to optimise fit and improve acoustic performance. Rugged steel hinges enable the BTs’ housings to swivel in two dimensions. This ensures comfort and maintains an ideal acoustic seal around the ear.

Slow-Retention Premium Foam

Premium foam in the ear pads contributes to the BT headphones’ passive noise reduction and extended bass response. The slow-retention foam helps maintain an acoustic seal around the ear, which keeps outside noises out and also keeps the listener’s music from disturbing others.

USB-Rechargeable

BT users can charge the headphones on the go with a supplied USB cord, which eliminates the need for batteries or an extra charger.

2D Folding Mechanism and Premium Carrying Case

The BT ear cups fold flat when they’re not in use, making the headphones easier to transport and store. The flat-folding headphones and included carrying case slip easily into bags or briefcases, which makes the BTs convenient for travelers.

I've had these for about three weeks now(not from Amazon as they weren't available here then)

As far as sound goes, they are fantastic, I've had several pairs of bluetooth headphones previously, and none have sounded anything like this, they are as close to a wired set of top quality headphones as you could wish for(I use a set of Sennheisers at home and these sound as good).

They seem well built and look great.

However.....these headphones have no damping materials in them whatsoever, so if your collar rubs on them, you get a massively loud rustling sound in your head, and when you walk along with them on, you can hear the metal headband flexing if you don't have the music on loud! If you try and use them wired, and the jack plug rubs against anything, then again there is a lot of noise!! The plastic pouch that comes with them for storage is cheap and nasty, I'd have expected better at the price.

Also..!! they can make your ears very hot indeed, when the weather get's warmer I won't be able to walk along with these on for long(I've just bought a pair of Creative WP350's for the warmer months, but they sound truly awful compared to these!)

The upshot is, if you can live with their flaws, the sound is superb, but they would be hopeless for someone exercising, or for a lover of classical music who wants to listen on the go.

These are my first phones with the APT X codec, and it certainly seems to make a difference to the sound.

These are sturdy well built headphones
I own several including Bose NC 15,Dr Dre Beats, Jabra bluetooth.None of them is as functional as these.
I spent months searching and trying out wireless headphones before I found these by chance.

Pros
Very good sound - excellent bass.
Very comfortable fit
Functionality - you could walk around the house or use it in your office at work and they are great
linked to your iMac, iphone or iPad without having to struggle with wires all the time.
Good value for money
Comfortable - sits comfortably around the ears and your head - I wore it for 7 hours straight no problems
(I tried the Parrot Zik and I was not able to wear it for than 5mins - heavy and very uncomfortable on the scalp)

They may not be Noise cancelling but it fits so well around your ears and blocks out the noise around you.

Long Battery life - I have managed 8 to 10 hours on one battery charge and it lasts for days.

The carry case is pure class.

I do not understand the issue about rubbing it on your collar.
When the music or film is on you do not hear anything else - it effectively blocks out the noise around you.

Cons
The bluetooth light may be slightly visible in a very dark environment but it does not bother you in any way and after a short while you wouldn't even know it is there.
I have struggled to have two devices linked to the headphone at the same time.

This all in all is an excellent headphone and very good value for money.

Other options - Parrot Zik - Great design like all products from Zik, uncomfortable and from reviews short battery life,Logitech - Comfortable, however expensive and poor sound quality

First off it is amazing to use and blocks off most sounds but not entirely which is good if you want to hear at least something happening around you.

It would have been perfect if my ears didn't hurt after wearing it for a long time. I need it for long hours and it isn't nice after a while. Just amazing to believe that it costs so much and then isn't comfortable, you'd think that would be a priority.
Another thing is that it turns off after a while and then reconnects again when you play some sound. It's too frustrating.

These are awesome bluetooth headphones. They look stunning, very classy and well built, I like the positioning of the buttons, but they may seem fiddly for some. The quality of the wires are great and the spare larger headband will be handy for some. I find them very comfortable, the leather covered memory is soft and the square design works well on my ears and blocks out most sound. The sound when wired is probably as good as you will get when on your phone or ipod, and wirelessly they are excellent considering that music over a bluetooth connection is never going to be as good as when wired. I have only charged them once, but I only use the bluetooth outside, had about ten hours wireless so far. Please ignore reviews that state noise from the headphones rubbing on clothes or uncomfortable with glasses as this can be said of almost all over ear headphones! I got these for £98 and would happily fork out more for them, beautiful and unique.

I think that there are some very good things about these headphones but I would not recommend them for mobile use as they are very microphonic. By this I mean that the structure of the headphones picks up sounds such as footsteps. Gentle footsteps are okay but heavy footsteps will resonate through the headphones. I found myself walking like a buddhist monk when wearing these headphones. However I will mention that I am very particular about this issue and others may not worry about this. I think that the problem lies in the undamped aluminium headband. I think that resonates very easily.

The actually sound quality of these headphones is extremely good indeed. The clarity is truly excellent. When used with my AptX savvy MacBook Pro I had the best sound quality. For any programme material with speech they are quite superb. For watching videos I think they are a good choice. When watching videos with bluetooth headphones there can be a problem in that the sound lags behind the picture but with these there was only a very small lag and it was not a problem.

There is one rather daft aspect of the design which is that the button that turns them on and which is used to connect to bluetooth contains the indicator light which means that you have to press the button carefully with a fingernail so that you can still see this impotent indicator light.

The overall design is very nice apart from the problems I have raised.

I found the range to be about twenty feet from source before the headphones would start dropping out. This is about the same as other bluetooth headphones I've used which have been much cheaper. I think this range is much the same for bluetooth headphones regardless of make or model.

I am returning them to Amazon because they to microphonic for me. I think that I will buy some Sennheiser bluetooth headphones instead as these also come with AptX.
