Hello all, as you can see this is my first post on head-fi . . . as some of you may know Harmon Kardon unveiled a bunch of headphones, earphones etc. at Apples WWDC. I wanted to start a thread about their "Classic" on-ear headphones. Here is a photo (courtesy of pocket-lint):
As you can see these headphones bear a resemblance to the Bowers & Wilkins P5 on-ear headphones . . . down to the swiveling earcups. The cable length is 4.59 feet with a 3.5 mm plug for all your portable DAP's, smartphones etc. and has the inline mic with 3 buttons to answer calls on your iPhone and skip tracks etc. . Impedance is 32 ohms and the frequency response is 16Hz to 20kHz. It is pretty apparent that these headphones have a focus on bass as pocket-lint says "The CL's 40mm large enclosure drivers are ported for better bass performance. The headphones are able to recycle information from the back of the driver for extra oomph in the low-frequency department - meaning extra kick when it comes to bass. Harman claims the CL will deliver better, cleaner bass performance than its competitors.". What do you think?
EDIT: I forgot to mention that these headphones are exclusively available from Apple . . . you can't even get them direct from the Harmon Kardon website! The headphones are available now for purchase from the online Apple store or from your local Apple Store.
EDIT #2: Oh yeah, I grabbed the tech specs from Apple's website.
