Absent for several years from the world of nomadic audio, Harman/Kardon is making a strong comeback in this field in 2020, especially with headphones true wireless Fly TWS who intend to shake up the heart of the market.
You don’t have to do active noise reduction and just look for intras true wireless offering the best possible sound quality, but the Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 2 are out of reach for you? Then the Harman/Kardon Fly TWS have you covered. Beware, however, of their ergonomics, which may not be suitable for all ear morphologies, especially the smallest ones.
- Very clear and dynamic sound reproduction.
- Very responsive bass.
- Build quality, splash resistance.
- Very complete orders.
- Excellent hands-free kit.
- Very slight lack of definition in the extreme highs.
- Limited stereophonic width.
- High latency.
- Thick case.
- Comfort can be problematic for people with small ears.
NB: The reported price drop is calculated by comparing the lowest price of the day with the average of the lowest prices charged by all merchants for the product last month, with security rules to exclude prices from shops whose the VAT policy is not clear (known as “grey” shops, typically in the case of imports from China).
The FreeBuds 4i are certainly not free from defects – in addition to their disappointing noise reduction, we especially think of their controls which are too scanty. But that does not prevent them from boldly teasing many supposedly more prestigious models, thanks in particular to extremely solid comfort and sound performance. A great success.
