Joining the likes of Bowers & Wilkins, Diesel by Monster, and Beats by Dre in the already stacked market of premium headphones this spring would be the giant of the audio industry, Harman Kardon. Well known as the Hi-Fi supplier to luxury car makers such as BMW, Land Rover, Mercedes-Benz and more, the company coincided with the ongoing Apple WDDC 2012 conference to launch its first portable audio collection, including the BT Headphones.
The flagship product from the new line, the BT Headphones are wireless connected to your portable audio devices via Bluetooth technology standard, hence the designation “BT”. Through a wide dynamic range and clarity, wireless sound reproductions are accurately real thanks to AAC (advanced audio coding) and Apt-X coding. Playback buttons on the ear-cup for ease of control, the BT Headphones include a “closed back” design to eliminate any external noise. Comes with small and large exchangeable metal headbands, audiophiles can customize the user experiences accordingly. Packaged in a premium carrying case with various cables and I/O, the BT Headphones boast a battery life of 40 hours per charge though music lovers can also use it while connected to their favorite audio devices. Available now through Apple Store for US$ 249.95
