THERES ONLY ONE CATCH TO IT! HOW DO YOU UPDATE THE FIRMWRE OF THE SPEAKER! It does not connect to my laptop as if i use a usb cable nothing happens at all. Moreover THE HK CONNECT APP IS THE WORST! IT JUST SHOWS DISCOVERING FOREVER! ALTHOUGH I AM AT THAT VERY MOMENT PLAYING SONGS WITH IT! I GET MY DREAM SPEAKER AFTER MONTHS OF SAVINGS AND NOW I AM MAD AT IT!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Incredible Bass, Annoying Delay The bass on this is incredible, equivalent to my home theater 10 inch subwoofer. The main problem is there is a 300ms delay so if you try to use it with anything else (TV speaker, DJ headphones, a second Onyx 5), you get a horrible delay effect. This happens with both the bluetooth and 3.5mm aux plug. There must be a defect in the processing or amplifier. Hopefully a firmware update will fix this. Also, some waterproof protection is needed for portable devices like this. The Onyx 5 is limited to mono sound which is not the best. A least create an app that can play 2 Onyx devices in stereo. Maybe Onyx 6 will be better?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Deep bass, clear midrange/vocal, decent highs I tested this Studio-5 against Studio 4 and I was very impressed by the improvement in bass response and clarity in midrange bands. I would say that it may have a bit too much bass which may be preferred by many users. Some could argue that it doesn't get loud enough, but my counter argument would be that do you prefer distorted and highly compressed "louder" sound OR not-as-loud but less distortion while maintaining a tighter bass response at max volume level?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic kit! Arrived yesterday, took all of 30 seconds to set up, so easy to use. Looks so classy and the sound is stunning. No difference in volume and quality of sound between wired and wireless. Incredibly chuffed and can’t recommend highly enough.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great sound with fatal flaws The speakers sound great, they would be perfect with a little more high tone treble. Problem number 1, auto shut off is a pain. If you pause sound for 15 minutes or so you will have to power the speaker back on even when plugged into the wall. Problem 2, When you turn the speaker back on 30% of the time it will not automatically reconnect. Problem 3, Pairing two (and that's all you can pair) is a pain and if you don't pair the bluetooth first before you pair the two speakers together be ready to start the whole process again. Problem 4, speakers when paired together will drop connection and drop bluetooth connection as well causing you to have to start the whole process again. Problem 5, the sound sync between the two paired speakers will go out of sync often causing a delayed sound or echo effect. Summary: Great sound but horrible functionality. Absolutely regret buying them. Solution: a firmware update to disable auto off and allow the speakers to stay on all the time and auto connect when you turn your device on would be a great starting fix. The rest of the problems are probably hardware issues and I doubt they can be fixed. Harmon Kardon has had the ability to do firmware updates from onyx 1 but has never push out an update, very disappointing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good bass, though limited functions, lag on audio It has a good bass, though maybe too prominent, it gives the sensations it cannot work as a standalone speaker but completing a system(like along with the tv, car speakers) Tried to connect it along with other devices, but, surprise, the audio lag makes it unusable for that matter. It happens on bluetooth as on line in. Very dissapointed, thought I may use it along with other speakers just to complete the lacking bass but no, cannot, let's hope they will fix it on the next firmware release. I am susprised they didn't release a firmware fix by now. Still waiting, the bad reviews keep gathering meantime.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Serious bluetooth connectivity issues with Macs This is great speaker in terms of sound quality but the latest version (5) suffers from bluetooth connectivity issues with at least with all the Macs I've tried. You basically have to reset the speaker every time you want to restore connection to the same Mac. This includes forgetting the device on your Mac bluetooth settings. This is really annoying process that takes upwards 5 minutes! The other issue is that if your Mac goes to power save mode the speaker power off so you have to walk back to the speaker and turn it on before you can connect.
