Esquire is rated 4.6875 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the business! A very smart piece of kit - great battery life, sounds fresh and bold and big, despite its small, compact suitcase-friendly form factor. If you're doing some internet research, you may read a few mixed reviews about sound quality, but since I bought mine, it seems that the Esquire is really tuned to be listened to from 3-8 ft away at higher volume- when you blast yourself in the face with this thing, like you do if you are sitting at a desk, it doesn't seem like the sound can spread out properly, and so you can hear some clipping and distortion - but step back and watch that disappear, and the speaker will easily fill the room with amazing depth and clarity. (For desk use, just turn it down a little!) All in all, the Esquire really is quite an impressive unit. Conference calls are a bonus, and the style, fit and finish is absolutely first class.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Got as Gift, Giving as Gift Simply, love it. Giving one to my dad for Father's Day. Tried to play with another h/k speaker - no luck. The two would not play together. Maybe they can, and I just don't know how it works; or, maybe h/k can make that happen in future designs. Great for on the go great sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Conference calls and home Concerts... I’ve used this speaker in multiple environments, so here are my comments based on a couple weeks of hands-on experience: I’ve used this speaker in multiple environments, so here are my comments based on a couple weeks of hands-on experience: -The range of sound is great. The high tones aren’t too piercing, and the bass is pretty decent. -Placed next to a wall, the sound will bounce and the bass gets a little nicer…but stand alone in the middle of the room, I’ve found the sound really nice too, bass included. -It has a great range of volume so it can be subtle in the office and a dance party at home. -The volume controls are from the device you’ve connected (I believe). -So far, I’ve tested the iPhone (5 and 6). If you use the buttons on the top of the speaker, they sync with the volume level on the connected iPhone (ie, the volume bar will move up/down with the +/- buttons on the speaker. -I haven’t been able to connect it to my iPad Air as of yet; it will not recognize it on Bluetooth. On my list to look into further. -Connecting is effortless via iPhone. -Multiple iPhones were able to easily connect and control the speaker with no setup, just a simple connect via Bluetooth in the device settings. -Read the instructions for the extras, perhaps. On my list to read further. -Battery life is great (so far). -Connected and playing music at low volume levels for 4 hours, only burned 1/5 of the power (ie, four clearly lit dots on the power indication on the side of the speaker, after four hours of fairly constant play). - Not “air-like” to carry, but incredibly portable. -Nice case comes with the speaker, and holds only the speaker. -While typically I would prefer a case that includes room for charging peripherals, this speaker has great battery life and therefore, don’t need to carry charging extras. -Conference calls with ease… -The main attraction for my use is the conference call capability (ie, built-in microphone and iPhone connectivity). While I yet to hear the output on the other end of a call from the speaker (on my list to look into further), all reports are that calls made via this speaker sound good on that end. -My only complaint is that the connect tone from the speaker is rather loud (like 1/2 of possible volume?)...is it based on last levels from previous device connected or maybe could be a lower volume by default? My two cents. Overall, thus far, I’m very happy with this purchase. Yay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Battery lasts for hours and hours Powerful, robust sound. I bought this in January 2014, and has yet to run out of battery power. So far I've only charged it twice - with a wonderful 3 port USB power adaptor that comes with this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superior Product I travel a lot and have been looking for a high quality bluetooth speaker to serve two purposes: listening to music and audioconferencing. I have used this product for five months now extensively for both purposes and I could not be happier with it, and I am fussy about sound quality too--hard to please! It is beautifully made, quality throughout, excellent battery life, and easy to use. I am also very pleased with the square form of it as it makes it very suitcase/packing friendly. I find myself using the Esquire around the house now too with my iPhone for music and podcasts. If you are looking for a very well designed and quality speaker for these two purposes I highly recommend this product.
