Engineered to Outperform.

Harman Kardon CL headphones feature an exclusive acoustic system that integrates superb mechanical design, materials, and electronics. User-exchangeable bows, self-adjusting housings, soft leather cups, and slow-retention ear-cup foam ensure a comfortable fit and an optimal acoustic seal on the ear. Uniquely baffled 1-5/8" (40 mm) drivers enable the CL to outperform other headphones in extended bass response. Sandblasted steel frames and black matte housings create an iconic, modern aesthetic. A blend of sophistication and simplicity, the lightweight, comfortable CL headphones are part of the first-ever line of Harman Kardon headphones. Now you can take beautiful sound with you wherever you go.

Sophisticated, Modern Design

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

Optimized Sound Quality

High-performance 1-5/8" (40 mm) drivers produce an excellent frequency response (16Hz – 20kHz) for a natural tone. The wide dynamic range reproduces music with realism. A unique baffle creates air flow that extends low frequencies. The CL headphones also incorporate a bass tube that functions like a tuned bass port. It boosts bass performance and helps the headphones produce exceptional bass response at any volume level. As a result, CL headphones provide better bass response than other headphones in their class.

Comfortable Performance

Drawing from a rich heritage of acoustic innovation, Harman Kardon CL headphones feature an exclusive acoustic system that integrates superb mechanical design, materials and electronics. User-exchangeable bows, self-adjusting housings, soft leather cups, and slow-retention ear-cup foam ensure a comfortable fit and an optimal acoustic seal on the ear.

The sound quality is great and they have very good sound isolation.

This may not affect you but well, I wear glasses and the headband for these is a little tight for me.

What I like:
-Aesthetics: presentation, packaging, beautiful and unique sophisticated design, nice pleather carrying case
-Option of 2 sizes (small vs large) of metallic headbands
-Magnetic leather earpads are easily removable and thus replaced
-Balanced sound, more than capable (though not booming) bass. Suitable for movie-watching and all sorts of music (instrumental soundtracks, vocals, hip-hop, pop, haven't tried rock yet)
-Easily driven by Galaxy Nexus using PowerAmp app with slight boosting of the treble, no amp necessary
-On-ear design makes music more vivid than around-the-ear design of other headphones. It also does a fair job of passively isolating noise (good enough to drown out 70% of engine noise during air travel)
-Minimal sound leakage
-More premium sound and design than direct competitor B&W P3. $100 cheaper than B&W P5, and after a quick test I could not tell the difference, probably only a very discerning audiophile could

What I don't like:
-Unlocking mechanism for earpieces may disengage them from the headband if you rotate them 360 degrees inadvertently
-Comfortable for half an hour but then clamping pressure on ears causes them to start throbbing
-Cable is proprietary. It also has a straight end rather than an L-shape to connect to device
-A little bit of noise when you move around, whether from squeaky leather or rubbing the metal headband

Sound and comfort when compared to Klipsch Image One, Harman Kardon CL, B&W P5, Bose QC15, Sennheiser Momentum:
-Klipsch Image One is too bass-heavy.

I love Amazon; i buy almost everything here. But I went to Best Buy to buy another pair of headsets because you can try them out and listen to them--something you can't do on Amazon. I specifically was interested if the Beats (by Dr Dre) were worth the $250-300 they ask for. Well, to my ear, they're good, but not worth the $300--these headsets (which I got on sale at $160) were by far better in quality. I tried every pair headphones they had there--Beats, Skulls, Monster, Sennheiser, Sony, Panasonic, and some off brands. (For reference, I would say these were clearly the best, then the $200 Monster set, then the $250 Beat mixr sets were third (but better than the $300 Beats "professional" pair. Also, the $300 Bose 15 with noise reduction were great, if you want noise reduction. But didn't sound as good as these three based only on the quality of the sound.)

These don't have the volume of the Monster or Beats mixr, but they were the only pair of headphones that were clear and could handle bass. The Monster and Beats have great bass, but if you play folk or classical they don't have the clarity (you can hear a pin drop on these), whereas the Sennheiser and Panasonic were clear, but if you also listen to hiphop, sound flat (these sound fat).

So if you want a pair of headphones that can handle both extremes, also look great, fold flat and come with a case and detachable sound cord, and also have "passive" noise reduction (the cans cover your ears and you can't hear much outside noise) these are the ones you want (at least for the under $300).

Verified Purchase
I normally don't care what headphones look like - but these are UGLY when you have the large headband on (which everyone recommends for comfort), and they are very uncomfortable (even with the large headband).

Mine also were delivered defective, where the black mesh covering on one of the headphones wasn't affixed properly, so I could see the inner parts of the earpiece. I'm returning for a refund - I purchased them because of the deal price of $65 - but they hurt, and are embarrassing to wear - since they look like a weird angel halo gone bad!

I love these headphones. The sound quality is good enough that I was impressed after shelling out $200, which is saying something. 3 months later, I am still impressed.

So let's start out with the sound - it probably isn't for everybody. There's a little emphasis on bass and mids, and by that I mean these have more bass slam than a purely neutral set. The mids are also slightly forward, which is one of the reasons I love these things. Treble is...treble. They have enough to be exciting, but not enough to ever sound shrill or sibilant.

But these are all subjective things, let's get into specific examples.

"Bleed" by Cold: Probably sounds better on this set of headphones than any other setup I've ever heard. It's an acoustic guitar and vocal piece, and it's beautiful. The acoustic guitar sounds phenomenal on these, and the male vocals have excellent weight and sound superb. It's a beautiful song regardless, but that beauty is doubled on this set.

"Cheers Darlin'" - by Damien Rice: Another acoustic-type track that sounds incredible on these. Vocals of all sorts just sound "right" on these, and they have enough detail that little sounds here-and-there are audible and add to the enjoyment.

"Welcome Home" - Coheed and Cambria: Exciting. Once again, guitars sound phenomenal. They are crunchy and visceral. The bass drum hits are exciting, and the cymbals sound metallic. This is a song with a lot going on, and you can hear it all with these. Not once does any instrument start to make the others less enjoyable.

"Suburban Me" - In Flames: Another rock song, a little busier than the last one. Once again, an exciting sound. Lots going on, and these headphones keep it all under perfect control.
