STAMFORD, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA), composed of 50 special interest magazines from 19 countries focusing on photography, A/V products, home theatres, and mobile devices, has recognized two HARMAN products with prestigious "Best Product" awards for 2013-2014. HARMAN is pleased to announce that the AKG K935 Wireless Hi-Fi headphones and the Harman Kardon Onyx portable speaker have been awarded best-in-class designation.
Every year, the EISA Awards applaud the newest products on the market that combine the most advanced technology, the most desirable features, the ultimate expression of design, the most satisfying ergonomics and the greatest value for their price. EISA awards are presented to products released in Europe within the past 12 months and deemed representative of their product category by a judging panel composed of editors of EISA-affiliated magazines specializing in that product division.
AKG K935 Wireless Hi-Fi Headphones
If you want to enjoy the sound of your hi-fi system privately, but without being tethered to a headphone socket, then AKG's K935 wireless 'phone is the perfect solution. The base unit, which can be wall-mounted, includes hidden magnets that hold the headphone in place while they charge, allowing for up to eight hours of remote listening enjoyment over a high quality 2.4GHz wireless connection. RCA and 3.5mm analogue inputs are fitted along with a sensitivity switch to accommodate a wide variety of music sources. Not only does the K935 develop a very detailed, spacious and sympathetic sound, but its soft and compliant velvet ear pads and light weight ensure the headphone is equally comfortable to wear.
Harman Kardon Onyx
The Harman Kardon Onyx is a portable speaker that can start a party wherever you are and will always set the mood easily.

High-grade materials are used for the exterior, like real leather on the back panel and the brushed metal of the handle/stand, underline the system's luxurious appeal.
