Product Features
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 driver system
High-performance 1-5/8-inch (40-millimeter) drivers produce an excellent frequency response (16Hz – 20kHz) for a natural tone. The wide dynamic range reproduces music with realism. And a unique baffle creates air flow that extends low frequencies. As a result, CL headphones provide better bass response than other headphones in their class.
Bass tube
CL headphones 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.
Sonic clarity and accuracy even at low volume levels
The CLs’ 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
To facilitate the optimal positioning of the ear cup on the head – and improve acoustic performance – CL headphones come with headband bows in two different sizes: small and large. Users can easily swap the headbands to determine which size maximizes comfort and fit.
Self-adjusting housings
The rugged steel hinges connecting the CL’s housings to its headband enable the housings to swivel in two dimensions. This structure maintains an ideal fit and acoustic seal on the ear, enhancing comfort and maximizing the rejection of outside noise for superior sound.
User-detachable, soft leather ear pads
The pads on the CL headphones feature a soft, protein leather that rests comfortably on the ear for a luxurious feel. If necessary, you can remove the pads to clean or replace them. When attached to the housings, the pads are secured with industrial-strength magnets and PORON® foam.
Slow-retention premium foam
Another factor contributing to the CL headphones’ excellent passive noise reduction and extended bass response is the slow-retention foam in the ear pads. The premium foam helps maintains an acoustic seal on the ear, which keeps outside noises out and also keeps the listener’s music from disturbing others.
Apple three-button remote with built-in microphone
Made specifically for use with iPhones and iPods, the CL’s streamlined remote offers familiar controls for audio playback controls and phone calls.
2D folding mechanism
The CL ear cups fold flat when they’re not in use, making the headphones easier to transport and store.
Detachable cable with metal connectors
The CL headphones’ cable is wrapped in tightly woven nylon fabric and includes highly finished 1/8-inch (3.5-millimeter) connectors on both ends. Flexible and durable, the heavy-gauge cable resists tangling, as does the cable’s single-side entry to the housing.
Premium carrying case
Beautiful sound is worth protecting. CL headphones come with a carrying case that reduces cable tangling. The flat-folding headphones and carrying case slip easily into bags or briefcases – which makes them especially convenient for travelers.
Reddot Design Award Winner
The Red Dot is the prize for high design quality. The international jury only awards this sought-after seal of quality to projects that set themselves apart significantly from comparable projects thanks to their excellent design.
