Wireless headphones that sound as good as their wired counterparts are rare, and the Harman Kardon BT headphones might be close to joining that exclusive club, with sound that CNET calls "comparatively natural and accurate." Unfortunately, it's only close and not perfect, as Cult of Mac says the BT headphones offer "a degraded experience" and iLounge thinks Harman Kardon "really needs to improve its Bluetooth headphone technology." Not all is lost for audiophiles and casual listeners alike, though, as when the BT is connected by a cable, iLounge said it "sounds and works really well" and delivers "clean and fairly powerful sound." The reasons to pick these up over other Bluetooth, or even wired headphones might be the "robust" build quality, "distinct look," and "old-school design" that CNET admit "won't appeal to everyone," though Cult of Mac admits they are "extremely comfortable." If you like the design, and really need a set of over-ear Bluetooth headphones the BT is a good choice -- especially at that price point -- but audiophiles might want to sit this one out.
