Hi, which year does HK launch ONYX?  I am thinking to buy ONYX or Studio 3.  Except for outlook and Wifi connection, Are their sound performance the same?  If wanna let my mac project movie and ONYX plays the sound via airplay, is ONYX better choice  

Asked by: Ethan
The ONYX was launched in 2013. The sound quality for the onyx seeries are the same. Both speakers, ONYX and ONYX STUDIO 3 are good choices.

The ONYX STUDIO 3 features are wireless dual sound, where you can connect the 2 ONYX STUDIO 3 or any HARMAN KARDON speakers with the wireless dual sound feature, Bluetooth.

Why do you have fatally flaw design with cord and Transformer?  Defeat travel capability when you have to bring separate charger and cord for one item.  Tell me when you travel you haven't asked why in you own experience.  Rather pay more bring less.

Hi, I just want to understand the difference between HK Onyx, Onyx Studio 2 and Onyx Studio 3 and which is right for me (key use: outdoor BBQ, pool side, excursions, etc.) 1. What are the differences in features? 2. What are the model launch years

Asked by: shariqmunir
The ONYX STUDIO 3, ONYX STUDIO 2 and ONYX have identical drivers and are both rated at 60W. The difference is, if the ONYX STUDIO 3 is running on battery, it will only output half of that rated wattage (half as loud) to save battery. You can only use the full 60W when running with the power cable plugged in. Second, the design, the ONYX uses a steel ring while the STUDIO 2 and 3 has legs to stand up. Third, the connectivity, the ONYX STUDIO 2 only has Bluetooth connection, ONYX STUDIO 3 both has auxiliary and Bluetooth and ONYX has both and wireless connectivity that can be connected to your Home Network for DLNA/Airplay. Fourth, the OnyxStudio 3 offers Wireless Dual Sound. This allows two Studio 3’s to wirelessly connect to each other, or to the Go+Play Mini and Onyx Mini, to play music out of them simultaneously.

I bought my speaker one year ago and never had a problem. Just use it four or five weeks per year. All of a sudden started just working if plugged in to a power outlet. Looks like the battery does not charge anymore. Do I need to replace the battery?

Asked by: JoaoJ
I'm sorry to hear that you are having issues with the ONYX. Unfortunately, you cannot replace the battery. What you can do is to try plugging the charger to a different wall outlet or try a different charger. I noticed that you are in Portugal. If you are still experiencing issues, please contact the store where you purchased it from and they will be able to help.
