Overview: The Harman Kardon BT over-ear Bluetooth headphones
let you enjoy music from your smartphone or other Bluetooth devices wirelessly.
The BTs are made of
high-quality materials to provide an exceptional acoustic performance. The
headphones have 40mm drivers and a unique baffle design for clear highs and
extended bass response. The BTs have interchangeable parts that let you custom
fit the headphones to your head. The ear cups swivel to lay flat for easy
storage in the supplied leather case.
Bluetooth Technology: The H/K BT wireless headphones
supports Bluetooth 2.1+EDR with A2DP (v1.2), AVRCP (v1.0), HSP (v1.2) and HFP
(v1.5) protocols. In addition they employ AAC and aptX coding to give you the
best wireless audio performance available. The Bluetooth operating range is
approximately 26 feet.
Rechargeable Battery: The headphones are powered by a
3.7-volt rechargeable battery. The battery charges in approximately 2 hours via
USB, using the supplied USB charging cable. (Charging from a laptop computer may
take longer.) Typical battery life is approximately 12 hours.
Cable: When the battery becomes exhausted, you can still
enjoy music playback from your device via the supplied bypass cable. The heavy
duty cable plugs into the left ear cup via a 2.5mm sub-miniplug, and is
terminated with a durable straight 3.5mm plug.
Built-in Remote/Microphone: The BT headphones have a
built-in microphone on the front of the left ear cup for carrying on phone
conversations. Also, there is a 3-button control panel on the back of the left
ear cup. The controls allow you to raise and lower the volume with the top and
bottom buttons, while the center button
can control your phone calls or music. The remote control is "Made for iPod,
iPhone, and iPad", which means that it is certified to meet Apple performance
standards. During music playback and phone calls, the control function is
determined by the number of center button presses:
- One Press: Pause/Play; Answer/Hang Up
- Two Presses: Skip to next track
- Three Presses: Skip to previous track
- Press and Hold: "Voice Over" feature (such as the
iPhone's Siri), if available
Design: The headphones have a closed back design and
slow-retention premium foam ear pads to keep outside noise out and keep your
music and phone conversations from leaking out. The ear cups swivel in two
directions to maintain the acoustic seal around your ear.
Interchangeable Bows: The H/K BT headphones come assembled
on a "small" metal headband bow. If you need or desire a larger fit, you can
remove the ear cups and padded from the original bow and attach them onto the
supplied "large" metal bow.
