Harman Kardon enters the headphone market with the CLs, which have a striking design, are well-built, and include a mic and controls for your iOS device. In the words of What HI-Fi, the over-the-ear headphones are "very impressive and thereâ€™s a lot to like about the sound quality." They are, according to What Hi-Fi, "a likeable addition to the burgeoning headphone market." Pocket Lint also likes them, calling the design "industrial yet elegant." They offer, according to Pocket Lint, "balanced audio" and "eye-grabbing aesthetics," though the site warns that they may not be comfortable for "long periods of wear." Buy them for the sound (and the design), but if you can, try them on before you buy.
