Product Description

Few multimedia sound systems can boast that their predecessor is part of the permanent collection at New York City’s Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)

Key Features

40 watts of amplification

Technically, the SoundSticks Wireless system is “multimedia,” but once you hear it perform, you’ll realize that it could easily become your primary audio system. With 40 watts of amplification producing rich, realistic sound, the SoundSticks Wireless offers strong bass output that will make all your music sound great – no matter what source is generating the music. And with the SoundSticks Wireless’ down-firing subwoofer amplifiers matched to its satellite speakers, you can rest assured that each speaker will get exactly what it needs to deliver consistent, optimal performance.

Bluetooth audio streaming

Let’s face it, most of our audio devices are Bluetooth-capable. And we’re not using them just for music; we’re watching movies, playing games and accessing social content. Using advanced HARMAN TrueStream™ wireless technology, you can connect your Bluetooth-enabled devices such as your tablet, phone, MP3 player and laptop to get the best possible wireless sound quality from all of your audio, not just your music. And it automatically switches to the Bluetooth system when your audio device is connected and playing. So whether you’re working away at the desk or streaming music while lounging on your comfy sofa across the room, you’ll still experience the same high-quality Harman Kardon sound you’ve come to love.

HARMAN TrueStream

HARMAN TrueStream is our guarantee that you will experience the best possible listening experience when streaming wirelessly via Bluetooth technology. Because there are many connectivity options when it comes to Bluetooth technology, our engineers always use the most current and most advanced. This method ensures the highest quality sound no matter the application or source device.

Thanks to its 1/8-inch (3.5-millimeter) stereo audio connection, you can use the SoundSticks Wireless speakers with nearly any device that has stereo line-level outputs
Awe-inspiring industrial design

Few multimedia sound systems can boast that their predecessor is part of the permanent collection at New York City’s Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), but that’s exactly the claim the SoundSticks Wireless speaker system can make. Taking its older sibling’s celebrated design even further, the new SoundSticks Wireless’s look is cutting edge, with a modern industrial-design aesthetic, elegant black accents and a luminescent white LED glow. And though the SoundSticks Wireless system may look like a visitor from the future with its transparent speaker covers, its exceptional performance makes it a more than worthy successor to the original, famous SoundSticks system.

1/8" (3.5mm) stereo audio connection

Though you keep plenty of songs on your Bluetooth devices, that doesn’t mean that all of your music is there. So we’ve ensured the SoundSticks Wireless’s compatibility with other sound sources. Thanks to its 1/8-inch (3.5-millimeter) stereo audio connection, you can use the SoundSticks Wireless speakers with nearly any device that has stereo line-level outputs. By offering you this user-friendly option, the SoundSticks Wireless is more than just a gorgeous addition to your desktop, bookshelf or entertainment center. It also keeps your life simple with a maximum of connection options – and a bare minimum of wiring.

Touch controls for volume and mute

The SoundSticks Wireless system makes it easy for you to interact with its subwoofer and satellite-speaker “sticks,” offering sensitive touch controls for raising, lowering or muting the system volume. By responding to the gentle touch of your fingertip, this intuitive design feature makes your SoundSticks Wireless system easy to operate and keeps this work of audio art in the best possible condition.

6" (160mm) down-firing subwoofer with volume control

In addition to 40 watts of amplification, the SoundSticks Wireless system also features a 6-inch (160-millimeter) down-firing subwoofer with volume control. By aiming sound down instead of sideways, your subwoofer makes your system less susceptible to adverse room variables – and gives you consistent performance. The subwoofer also has a flared port that reduces port noise during high-volume audio passages. This feature helps you tailor sound levels based on your room’s specifications as well as your own listening preferences.

Eight full-range transducers

Harman Kardon products have a rich history of beautifully engineered sound. The SoundSticks Wireless system is no different, coming with eight full-range transducers (four in each satellite speaker) and deftly filling your room with great sound while increasing your power handling and audio output. With low distortion and high sound quality, the SoundSticks Wireless speakers ensure that you’ll hear music or video exactly the way its creators intended.

Easy-to-adjust satellite speakers

Elegant and easy to use, the SoundSticks Wireless satellite speakers are designed to fit exactly where you want them. Aim these slim, small-footprint “sticks” at the desk where you work or at the comfy couch across the room where you take a break; either way, the SoundSticks Wireless’s “sticks” will give you great sound.

Harman Kardon sound: A legacy of achievement

The SoundSticks Wireless system strikes the perfect balance between beautiful sound and elegant design. What’s more, it allows you to access all the audio on your favorite devices conveniently and without a hassle, thanks to integrated Bluetooth technology. The system lives up to a powerhouse tradition; from the world’s first stereo receiver (the Festival® TA230) to the incarnation of the SoundSticks system that has become part of the permanent collection at New York City’s Museum of Modern Art, Harman Kardon engineers have consistently advanced the science of sound, developing magnificent audio products that are dedicated to quality and durability and, most importantly, generating rave reviews from audiophiles.

It sounds like some of the other reviewers had one-off issues with the wireless. I had no problems hooking these speakers up to my macbook pro and getting great sound.

On the sound, I'm not sure if it's the speakers' unique design or the specific components, or a mixture, but these speakers pump out loud, crystal clear audio. I mainly use them for watching movies through my computer and listening to music. Good bass response for hip hop and great range for more subtle / mid-range frequency music like classical or acoustic.

Overall, excellent speakers and I'm really happy with wireless - keeps my desk uncluttered.

I have the original sound sticks from back in 2006 and I LOVED THEM. They still work, and I had no intention of replacing them till I saw that these are WIRELESS and BLUETOOTH! These are awesome. I love these, the wireless connection is a synch. The range works really well, I can play from so far away, multiple rooms away, through multiple walls.

I highly recommend these!

Shawn

I am no audiophile, but holy Cr**p these things are amazing. Using a Macbook Pro via bluetooth and I have no volume issues. It gets louder than I would ever use it. I don't write many reviews but I am so pleased with this purchased I thought id throw in my .02 cents.

Also for the apple folks having crackling popping issues via bluetooth its not the speakers its the bit rate default settings set by apple. Google and download Pref Setter its free. Once Launched Turn off your bluetooth completely off. Locate com.apple.bluetoothaudioagent First two Bit pool settings should be Bitpool max I changed that to 80 and 2nd should be Bitpool min I changed that to 40. Haven't had the issues since doing this.

I noticed a review here that suggested some may want to adjust the bluetooth bit rate by downloading some software that is not in the Apple App store. So, I want to post how to do the same thing without downloading some unknown software:

You don't need to download this unknown software. The software mentioned in the earlier review is not in the Apple App store, so I don't recommend using it. Particularlly because you can modify these setting without any additional software.

Here is how to read and adjust these settings on your own:
In finder, search for and open Terminal
In the terminal window type: defaults read com.apple.BluetoothAudioAgent (this will show your current settings)

If you choose to adjust them, in the same terminal window type: defaults write com.apple.BluetoothAudioAgent "Apple Bitpool Min (editable)" 40

Just replace min with max and 40 with whatever value you desire

My brother had the older version,Soundsticks III, and he absolutely loved them. I decided to get one for me when I bought my MacBook Air. I was amazed by the clarity and deep bass. No matter what type of music I play, the Soundsticks Wireless definitely sounds great. It works with my iPad 2!

Just received these speakers today. They sound and LOOK fantastic! But Apple users BEWARE....I loose bluetooth connection when using my iPhone 5 (ios 6.1.2) after about 5-10 minutes. The only fix is to turn the sub-woofer off and back on and then it will reconnect. After a little internet investigating, it looks as though the new ios (6) must have a bug. Users of the older version (ios 5) had no problems until they updated their software. It does it continuously so it makes the bluetooth feature virtually useless with Apple products with the new operating system. I have a Samsung tablet and it works great with this brand. I am hoping Apple finds a fix and sends an update to their operating system...

I spoke to Harman Kardon technical support and inquired that I'd like to have the Soundsticks wireless speakers connected to my TV set via the wired 1/8" audio jack and also be able to wirelessly stream music from my iPad and iPhone when I choose to (obvioulsy not at the same time). I was told that in order to wirelessly stream, I'd have to physically disconnect the audio cable from my TV. Sadly this won't work for me. It would be a nuisance to have to do that each time I'd like to use the speaker with my AV system or then stream music wirelessly. HK should design these with a switch to select input options (wired or bluetooth).

I bought this sound system for both TV and blue tooth use. It sounds and looks great. The only reason that it didn't get 5 starts is due to the problems using it with Apple products. Apple's blue tooth connection does not work with this system. It does work fine with my Amazon Kindle though so no problems in the long run.
