The Harman Kardon® engineering team, which developed the world’s first stereo receiver, now introduces the first line of Harman Kardon headphones. The in-ear, on-ear and over-ear headphones achieve a harmonic blend of sophistication and simplicity. From high-quality materials to exceptional acoustic performance, the new headphones reflect the Harman Kardon commitment to innovative industrial design and uncompromising sound quality. A triumph of craftsmanship and audio engineering, Harman Kardon headphones are designed for those with an eye for style and an ear for sound. Drawing from a rich heritage of acoustic innovation, the lightweight, comfortable Harman Kardon AE headphones feature an aluminum-alloy housing for extended bass and true low-frequency reproduction. Optimized 3/8-inch (9-millimeter) drivers deliver extended bass response, wide dynamic levels, high sound-pressure levels and sonic clarity at all volume levels. The in-ear headphones include silicone sleeves in three sizes for optimum comfort and an Apple three-button remote with built-in microphone for phone calls.

Harman Kardon AE headphones offer high-tech performance wrapped in an elegant package and interface. With its blend of aluminum and black, the AEs’ design and function complement Apple products while reinforcing the sophisticated elegance of the Harman Kardon brand.

Premium 3/8-inch (9-millimeter) drivers generate an excellent frequency response (16Hz – 20kHz) and are optimized to the aluminum housing. They produce wide dynamic range, high sound-pressure levels and extended bass response.

The housing on the AE headphones is made of an aluminum alloy that provides superior acoustic dampening. It extends the bass range with true low-frequency reproduction. The housing also reduces the unwanted resonances that can compromise sound quality.

The AEs’ 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.

Three pairs of sleeves (small, medium and large) are included. The choice of size ensures maximum comfort – and minimum ambient noise – in the ear canal.

As a one-size-fits-all option to silicone sleeves, AE headphones include a pair of Comply™ sleeves. The moldable foam provides a comfortable fit as well as noise reduction.

Made specifically for use with iPhone and iPod, the streamlined AE remote offers familiar controls for audio playback controls and phone calls.

The cable on the AE headphones features a metal plug and an elastomer-coated cable that resists tangling. High-quality materials help the cable and plug last longer.

Beautiful sound is worth protecting. AE headphones come with a carrying case that keeps the silicone sleeves from getting lost and reduces cable tangling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEAUTIFUL SOUND INDEED! I am a huge critic when it comes to audio and headphones in particular, and I must say I have spent $150 three times in a row for these headphones.
