Harman Kardon FLY
Also launching for the first time in New Zealand are two models from the Harman Kardon FLY line-up – FLY BT (Bluetooth) and FLY ANC (Active Noise Cancelling). Specifically designed for busy lifestyles these headphones put Harman Kardon’s high-quality audio centre stage, alongside support for voice assistants for a better user experience.
Harman Kardon FLY BT
The in-ear FLY BT model brings intuitive features in an effortless design. Harman Kardon’s signature sound ensures each note is captivating, while 8.6mm drivers guarantees 8-hours of active listening. The FLY BT is equipped with speed charge functionality, allowing users to quickly power-up their headphones before heading out the door.
Magnetic earbuds, a high-quality fabric cable and compact storage pouch provide a seamless, tangle-free experience, while retaining durability if listeners need to quickly toss the headphones in a bag or pocket. The FLY BT even supports smartphones’ native voice assistants – simply tap a button on the in-line controls to activate the Google assistant or Amazon Alexa.
Harman Kardon FLY ANC
With 40mm custom drivers and a sound signature optimised for travel, the over-ear FLY ANC creates an immersive audio experience, perfect for working or enjoying music on the go. Listeners can block out external noise for up to 20-hours of uninterrupted listening with Bluetooth and active noise-cancelling enabled, and effortlessly transition from watching a movie to taking a call with multi-point connection between two separate devices.
A detachable audio cable, speed-charge capabilities and a hard-sided travel case provide flexibility and durability while traveling, perfect whether you’re catching a flight or making your way across town between meetings.
The Harman Kardon FLY models are the first headphones with added support from the Harman Kardon app. By connecting the headphones to the app, users will be able to have intelligent, advanced control over their listening experience. Adjust the audio to fit each individual song, with pre-set equaliser options for Classic, Orchestra and Stadium modes.
