ONYX is rated 4.611111111111111 out of 5 by 54.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent lows & highs for it's size I got this speaker as a replacement for my Onyx Studio 2 which I returned because of it's flimsy legstands that tend to break overtime for which I'm sure several buyers have experienced. I'm glad that they came up with a redesigned sturdy legstands which is the one I'm reviewing now. Sound quality for all Onyx models are basically identical and all of them have Robust sound considering how small the drivers are. At fist glance you would think that it that the whole unit is the driver itself especially when you hear the bass output it makes. But you will surprise to find out when you remove the front speaker cover that it's only a speaker case housing 4 small drivers and two passive radiators. Not to mention the amplifier and function controls in it. It's amazing what great electronics and passive radiators can do to deliver full full bodied sound with outstanding clarity and power for such small speaker drivers. the only thing is you have to pay big time to own it. Buying it on black Friday is the way bto go.

Amazing sound ! Deep rumbling low tones (no distortion , any volume level and kontrabass/double bass sounds like a real instrument ), very good mid tones and vocal, clear, ringing high sounds ! Depending on the device. Pc, smartphone or whatever the Bluetooth audio device (I myself use sound equipment, which all have a 24 bit 192kHz DAC). Universal: plays and performs all music genres very well !Plays very good low-quality MP3 files - 24bit 192kHz music files ! If it is plugged in to electric socket, you will be playing a much higher volumes and even purer sound ! Every day more and more want to listen to music through the Harman Kardon Onyx Studio ! There are many different qualities of music and videos in the internet and this is the best universal ,compact , bluetooth loudspeaker in its class ! Excellent ! If this speaker is placed on the rear closed shelf , then you hear the sound even more powerful and deeper bass ! It is this type of speaker with the usual open-box serves as a megaphone! Try a variety of shelves and open wooden crates! This universal speaker sound is excellent every way and in any kind open box !

Can you pair two of the Onyx speakers together? If so how?

Asked by: Catherine
Unfortunately you cannot pair two ONYX speakers wirelessly, you can use them together via a hardwired connection using an AUX splitter cable. What you can pair together are speakers with the Wireless Dual Sound feature namely the ONYX STUDIO 3 and the GO + PLAY MINI.

Hello, I purchased my Onyx a year ago and it has been good up until a month ago when the battery started to fail. It only lasts about 15 minutes and then it shuts down. I have tried everything from resetting it to recharging. No luck, very disappointing.

Hello, I bought the HK ONYX with the silver ring around it a year ago or so. I've never had any trouble with it until today. I tried to activate it but it doesn't work. it's charged and everything but it wont turn on.

Asked by: Sappawf
The ONYX must be behaving erratically if you're unable to power it on when pressing the power button. In order to ensure that the issue is caused by a defect in the ONYX, please try plug it in at an alternate power source. I noticed you are in Netherlands. If this doesn't help, please submit a case at http://www.harmankardon.nl/contactus and the Customer Service team will be more than happy to further assist you.

I got my Onyx Studio 2 speaker for x-mas. I'm careful and treat it delicately. With that said, I set it down last week and one of the legs just fell off. Looking at the design, a 1/4" ?? plastic connection to the speaker seems weak. What do I do now????

Can this device  be used with Guitar 

Asked by: Afaa
The ONYX does not have amplification components as a guitar amplifier, thus if you connect a guitar to it, it will cause damage to the speaker.

Is the onyx speaker waterproof? And if not, what should I do if it got wet?

Asked by: Matgau
The ONYX is not a waterproof speaker. Damage isn't generally caused by water itself, but by the electrical shorts that it creates. So if it got wet, dry the speaker off right away. Remove the grill and let the speaker dry for 48 hours or so. Just make sure that the ONYX is totally dry before attempting to plug it in to a wall outlet.
