Customer Reviews

This one is the best between all speakers.
Manuel Mattei
Playing at very loud volumes or using the USB power outlet to power a device will obviously impact that time, which is about average for this type of speaker.
Overall, this is a very nice looking piece of equipment.

Color Name: Black
I hoped the Onyx to be a worthy successor of the great and popular go&play speaker, which meanwhile is available as a wirelss version.
The Onyx is smaller but has built in battery and supports all available wireless modes you can think of, including Airplay, DLNA and Bluetooth (with Apt-X support and NFC).

But soundwise the Onyx is no match. It sounds good, but you have to crank it to at least 50% in order to really get some punchy sound and 50% is already pretty loud, much too loud for comfortable listening at home. It sounds rather flat and lifeless at lower volumes. I also own the small Bose Soundlink Mini and at low volumes the Bose outplayed the Onyx, which sounded rather honky, without any mentionable bass.
The speaker also starts to take away bass at levels higher than 70%. With particular recordings I was able to hear some distortion, but not too severe. It sounds just best at medium levels and doesn't like neither low nor high volume!

Overall I had no issues with the speaker, it worked flawlessly in Airplay mode, as it did in Bluetooth mode. I only found the loud confirmation-tones a bit annoying when the speaker connected to your router or to your bluetooth device.

The battery life was as advertised. At levels below 50% I got about 5 and a half hours of wireless streaming. I also tried it at 50% where it sounded best and I only got 4 hours until it shut off on its own.

I don't quite understand the choice of the leather for the back as you usually wouldn't see it, also the aluminium passive radiator at the back looks nice, but normally it won't be seen at the back. Unfortunately the front cloth-cover doesn't quite match the rest of the speaker as it has a cheap feel to it, I would have rather preferred a metal grille.

Color Name: White Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
First of all, it's bigger than it looks in the picture. I've uploaded one with my telephone receiver next to it for reference.

For starters the box that arrived was shows the actual size on the cover and it did take me back, because the picture on Amazon looks almost white. This unit is solid black and and the silver handle swoops over head like a ring of Saturn ( I'm quickly putting together that it's called "Onyx" because it is black but still, the white picture is a tad misleading).

The "Buttons" on top aren't really buttons but symbols that respond to your touch. There is volume, power, wifi and bluetooth on top. I wanted to see what would happen if i just plugged it in. Get this, my iPhone new there was an app available for this unit before I did anything to search for it. It was just here in the app store ready for me. I touched the bluetooth "button" on top of the unit, went to my bluetooth on the phone and paired it right up without need for a code.

The app from HK has your music library in it and I just pressed a song and the bass filled the air. I was just loving the quality of sound. I almost forgot to read the instructions.

There is a lot of flexibility with this speaker, you can usb directly to your computer, control the volume with the remote, you can connect it to your wps automatically so that you can access your speaker from any computer. The power "button" also serves as a battery strength indicator (did I tell you that it runs on batteries?). I've been listening for the last hour through bluetooth and there has been a remarkable connection from 15ft away!

I haven't fully played with the WPS function yet but will. This is a handsome unit and one is plenty for your party inside or out (it's not waterproof, just fyi).

Overall, It's a great choice for wireless or wired sound. I'm still kinda blown away.

Color Name: Black
I got this speaker after reading several reviews on Amazon and other pro-audio web sites, some of which were negative because of the feature set, set-up process and price. Boy were they wrong and I am ecstatic with the purchase. I have used and/or owned wireless Bluetooth speakers by Bose and others. What makes this speaker the best that exists is its ease of use, sound and portability. First off, it was super easy to pair with both my iPhone and Androide with no problems. Joining my home wifi network was also very easy (I have a Linksys WRT1900AC router) and took only minutes (it is 2.4ghz compatible). It fully charged within 90 minutes (and yes, contrary to some other reviews, the speaker displays charge level on the top of the speaker). It is very light (I have rib injuries and it was easy to move with the built in handle). I used it with Pandora streaming audio, Youtube videos, and music on my home network, both inside my home and in my back yard. The range is awesome with the Bluetooth (I got over 50 feet away and it worked fine), the sound, well that's where it excelled. The bass is pounding and clear, the treble high and clear. Both ran without distortion when turned almost all the way up. It is very loud for a portable wireless speaker, in my opinion the loudest in its class. The speaker stand sits anywhere in a sturdy manner and can charge your iPhone/Android while charing using it's a/c adapter, a handy feature. The buttons are in keeping with Harmon Kardon's simple approach to design and that's great, it makes using it easy. Some complained about the lack of a remote control, which boggles my mind when we all have way to many small portable devices, dongles, batteries, chargers to keep track of. You simply use the app.'s controls to control the sound and input on the unt, i.e.Read more ›
