Nova is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never give reviews but theses speakers deserve 8/5 Was on the website because I am now a loyal Harman customer because of these speakers. I saw the need for reviews and have to give these speakers the max rating cause they deserve it. I've had them for over a year now and I'm a critic for clean and full dynamic audio and these produce great quality sound. I was blown away when I first received them. I have put these speakers through it all and then back but they still produce like they did from day 1. Once I found one rolling down the street, thought it was a goner but it still works flawlessly and delivers the same suburb sound. I have been across the US and Europe with these speakers, I just hook them up to my monitor and I don't have to deal with poor sounding audio. Amazed at the overall quality and the clear sound for the cost, its a steal. Personally, not worried about the general looks when buying speakers but I have gotten so many wows and ohh cause they do look great. Decided a while ago that I will buy another set if I destroy my current ones. Without a doubt one of the best purchases I have made and I would beyond recommend these speakers to anyone that can appreciates great sound without any compromise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW !!! Great features & bass.Truly authentic man! As I am listening, my audio sounds exactly from New Age to Dubstep, it sounds exactly how its suppose to sound - I was listening to my Bose and it did not do anything, I stepped it up with my Bass when I put on my Dubstep, it really made me feel like there. I am in heaven with these. I tell people to put an extra $100 and they will get the banging sound for $300 while the others are like in the $500 and it doesn't sound anything close to it. Try them out - I know I did!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommended, but with a few warnings If you're a sound purist, your home will already be equipped with a very expensive and super-duper quality audio/video system, these speakers won't be purchased to replace such systems. However, if you're looking to equip another room, your office (provided you're working alone in that office), or your gym downstairs, or bring these bad boys to a friend's house for a party, they surely deliver what they promise. they are not quite the portable size, but they're easy to carry, honestly, even the carrying box is of great quality, and easy to carry with the provided handle. Music: high fidelity, power, high quality bass, but a bit of distortion on the trebles with my iPhone6, which I use with the EQ treble reducer settings; then it's distortion-free even with the volume at high or very high. Works great also to watch movies with my laptop, using bluetooth connection. The "on/off" beep is indeed a bit annoying, but from there to not recommend the speakers while giving a 4-star rating, yeah... some people are weird. I think it's still an awesome pair of reduced-size speakers. As compared to Logitech and JBL portable speakers (I own all of the above), these HK deliver more quality and much better sound, but they need to be powered by an outlet and not battery-operated. They remember the last used settings and they turn ON automatically when the last-used source is turned on (example, your laptop, provided the bluetooth on the laptop is ON). I like this feature a lot because you don't need to waste a "long" time to pair the speakers with the source. Switching from source to source is also fast (<4sec). Overall excellent rating, let's just hope they will last (had them for only a few weeks now).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Design and Impressive Sound I purchased the Nova's a few weeks ago after returning my Bose Companion 20's and have no regrets. I hardly ever write product reviews but felt compelled to share my positive experience thus far. I'm not a self-proclaimed audiophile but I'm an orchestral musician and can appreciate the clarity and quality of the sound range on these speakers. I'll probably only ever use these at 50% capacity and the speakers retain their quality even at a really low volume. I have a small work space in a small apartment so I didn't want a dedicated subwoofer. I like the bass boost functionality because most of the time I don't want the extra bass. The mids and highs are strong without it and the boost gives a decent kick on the rare occasion that I turn it on. Probably the best part is the design. Nothing in this price range comes close to how slick these look. The touch interface is also ergonomic and easy to use. The support for NFC, Bluetooth, and optical audio output seems rare for a two speaker system in this price range, meaning that these speakers will hold their value for a long time. I can sync my phone to these with NFC so there's no need to deal with manual Bluetooth pairing. You can also have a wired connection if you're looking to retain the highest sound quality - though it's hard to tell the difference most of the time. I'm also looking forward to trying these out on my TV (they're easy to reinstall with other configurations). All in all. The sound is amazing, but there are certainly other speakers in the price range that rival the sound quality. Get these for the design, functionality, and interface where there are no comparables.

Hello, how can I reset my NOVA?

Asked by: bar123
The NOVA does not have a reset procedure. If you are experiencing any intermittent issues with the speaker, a simple power-cycle should fix it. To pair a new Bluetooth device to the NOVA, you can either connect it by tapping it on the NFC icon (only for NFC compatible devices) or press and hold the Bluetooth button on the NOVA for &gt;2.5 seconds. This will place the speaker back on pairing mode and should allow you to connect your phone/tablet to it.

My neighbors keep connecting to my speakers via bluetooth to the point where I can no longer keep them plugged in. How can I make sure only devices I approve are connected to my speakers? Also, can bluetooth be completely turned off when not in use?

Asked by: DonTaveras

How do I get the second speaker connected? Why do you not have any product manual whatsoever ( and please do not quote the so called quick start guide which is just a stupid picture of the procuct)?

Asked by: Dallas
There is a supplied wire that must be connected between the left and right wire. This is the only way for the second speaker to work.

My Nova speakers just stopped working yesterday. I was watching a movie and suddenly there were some extra sounds and then they stopped working, the only thing that's lit up now is the power button and it's yellow. The choose input button is no longer lit

Hi there, I have this speaker and whenever listening to music while connected to Bluetooth to my macbook, it sputters and skips. &nbsp;Is there something I can do to fix this?

Asked by: Jennifer
There are a few things to check/try. 1. First, try forgetting the NOVA in your macbook. The shut down the macbook, completely (not a reboot). Then boot it back up. when it is completely done booting back up, shut it down one more time. This is very important because it now means that the macbook has gone through an entire on/off cycle without ever being connected to the NOVA. Now boot it back up one more time. When it is done booting, try pairing with the NOVA. This will likely fix your problem. 2. If 1 didn't fix your problem, please try connecting to the NOVA, via Bluetooth, with other devices. If the other devices play fine, you will need to contact Apple for a resolution. On the other hand, if the other devices also give the same problem, please submit a case at http://www.harmankardon.com/contactus. They will gladly assist you. Example: Whenever I use MediaMonkey and my phone screen is off, it skips from time to time. This never happens with any other apps. Clearly, in my case, the problem is a glitch in MediaMonkey.
