Harman Kardon is a well-known brand, and the CL over-ear headphones are testament as to why. It's all about quality: right from the eye-grabbing aesthetics through to the ear-cushioned audio experience. Industrial yet elegant, they may not be to everyone's tastes, but we like the raw look as much as the balanced audio. However the not traditionally adjustable headband and flat ear cups aren't especially comfortable for long periods of wear, and we feel that there ought to be a pinch more top end for a more complete listen. Still, we're impressed overall.
