Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent ! Excellent portable home speaker and excellent buy ! Harman Kardon Onyx Studio . So compact dimensions and the sound is like a large floor speakers ! 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 !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Back side passive radiator I got this for a Black Friday deal as it was about 300 dollars off its regular price, it was a steal so I took it. So far I am absolutely amazed by what it has done for me so far, definitely the best portable speaker I've ever had, one problem I did notice although, which is the reason I'm writing this review, is the passive radiator on the back of the device, at any volume, it makes a noise with heavy bass, it sounds as if someone is tapping on the metal, I can hear the noise at any given volume, I have also noticed that with some songs, at about half volume the back radiator almost cannot take the bass and I thought I was going to blow it so I quickly turned the volume down, you could see the metal not coming in and out perfectly straight but bouncing side to side and then in and out, the noise also sounded very airy and I feared for the speaker, the song was emotional-flux pavilion. I do not know if this is just my speaker but this definitely is a letdown.

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.

Asked by: Felipe del Bosque
It sounds like the ONYX is no longer holding a charge. If you are charging the ONYX from an extension cord using the charger that came with it, please charge it directly on a working wall outlet for maximum of 5 hours. If the problem persists, it may have developed a fault. I noticed that you are in Dubai. If this doesn't help, please contact the store where you purchased it and they will be able to help, or at least guide you to the people that can help.

how to activate

Asked by: shumba
I assume you're asking on how to use the ONYX via Bluetooth. If this is the case, pressing the power button enabling the Bluetooth pairing at the same time. Search Bluetooth devices from your device source and connect to the ONYX. Play music and enjoy.

Can I connect it to my laptop?

Asked by: Arianne
Yes, you can. You can connect the speaker either via Bluetooth or wired connection. If you are going to connect the speaker wirelessly, make sure that your computer can stream audio wirelessly or the audio codecs of the computer is up to date and is A2DP compatible. If you connect the speakers via a wired connection, the 3.5 AUX port of the speaker is located at the back where the charging port is.

Hello, HK! Is it possible to disable wake up/go to sleep loud sound? Now my Onyx beeps several times a day (when the WiFi and BT goes up/down). Very annoying. Especially when I switch off the computer with BT at night and my children are sleeping already.

Asked by: minii
Unfortunately, there is no way to turn the system tone off on the ONYX. All our portable speakers have the system tone and cannot be switched off.
