Harman Kardon Soho Wireless gets local pricing
We were invited last night at JBL Sound Gallery along Bonifacio High Street in Taguig where they showcased a few of their products like ATMOS home theater speakers and portable headphones. Among these is the Harman Kardon Soho Wireless which is almost ready to make its official arrival here in the Philippines.
Announced last IFA 2014 in Berlin, the Harman Kardon Soho Wireless is the wireless variant of the Soho that we’ve had the chance to test out early last year. It’s an elegant-looking headphones made of premium material and still has the same minimalist design that made us like it the first time.
The Soho Wireless has a supra-aural design giving it an on-ear function. Its 30mm drivers are cased in a well-padded housing that promises comfort for the user as they are aimed for traveling. It connects either via Bluetooth or NFC (Near Field Communication) for those devices that support such feature.
What’s unique about these pair of cans is its touch-sensitive controls embedded on the right cup. A swipe forward skips to the next track, a swipe back goes to the previous song, and a tap pauses, plays, or answers calls. This way, you can navigate through your music with ease while on-the-go. Clever.
Hitting store shelves during the third week of February, the Harman Kardon Soho Wireless will retail for Php12,000.
