Go + Play™ II is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great durability, phantastic sound! I proudly own this beast since - I don't know - like 10 years or more. I moved from Germany to England, then back to Germany, then to another city. You just can't trash it, and, believe me, I tried. It's unkaputtable - as we say in Germany. Undestroyable. It survived 3 iPods! The sound? I still can't believe what this little beast is capable of. I now use it as speakers for an Echo Dot. I guess it stays with me for a lifetime. Best purchase ever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from crisp sound and durable I have had my go and play for six years and never a problem.This unit has kept people at my pigroasts entertained for years. Still sounds as good as the day that I bought it. The remote got a bit damp last weekend and died. Love to find a new one. Overall a very good investment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Plain Awesome I have had my Go-Play for more than 8 years. It still sounds amazing. I have had to add a Bluetooth adapter because it doesn't support IOS lightning connectors but it doesn't make any difference to me as long as the sound is as incredible as it is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the bass I've had this for 2 weeks and I love it. Has very good bass. Way better than Bose

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Device I bought one of these 10 years ago and I am still enjoying the crisp sound is producing. I bought another one a month ago to have it just in case the other one goes bad but from what I can see they are very durable and powerful. The high & low frequencies are extremely good for such small device. 100% recommended.

I have a Go+ Play but can i use it also with bluetooth ? My Ipod doens't work so good anymore. Or do a need a device for it.

Asked by: Connie 010
The GO+ PLAY II does not offer Bluetooth. However, since it has a 3.5mm aux input, you can plug any non-Bluetooth device to it including your iPod using a 3.5mm audio cable. If you’re having issue with your iPod when connected to it, please make sure that the iPod is seated all the way into the docking station. You can also try to reset your iPod to possibly fix the issue. If none of these things work, please submit a case at www.harmankardon.com/contactus and the Customer Service team will be more than happy to further assist you.

I have a Harman Kardon Go Play that will stop playing for no reason then it won't connect back to our phones. Do you have any suggestions? We just purchased this about 4 months ago. 

Asked by: Mike Campbell
This product has power saving features. If the speaker does not detect an audio signal it will turn off. So, if you have the volume on GO+ PLAY II cranked up, and the volume on your portable device set really low, it is very possible that GO+ PLAY II is not seeing enough of an audio signal to know to stay on. Please try turning the volume on the GO+ PLAY II down a bit, and then crank up the volume on your device to get to the level you desire. This will send a signal to the GO+ PLAY and it should stay on without any issues. If this doesn't help, please submit a request at http://www.harmankardon.com/contactus and the Customer Service team will be more than happy to assist you.

The speakers will sometimes randomly turn off. Is this a problem with the power source or is it an old battery? I love the product and won't be replacing it soon but I am pretty lazy and turning it back on frequently especially with guest over is a hassle
