Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic kit! Arrived yesterday, took all of 30 seconds to set up, so easy to use. Looks so classy and the sound is stunning. No difference in volume and quality of sound between wired and wireless. Incredibly chuffed and can’t recommend highly enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic audio quality! We have just started using one of these as a speaker in the store I work in and its fantastic. Loud and clear with great bass sound that isnt too over powering. We love it and its amazing with pretty much any genre of music.

I know it isn't water or dust resistant but can it be used in the bathroom with the shower humidity?

Asked by: Audiboy
Unfortunately it will not. Steam can lead to condensation and if it gets heavy enough, it will cause damage to the speaker.

If i buy this in France what will I need to do to use it in the US?

Asked by: Lee47
Hello! The power supply for the ONYX STUDIO 5 is set to Auto Volt so you can plug the unit into either a 110v outlet or a 220v outlet without any issues. In other words, you don't need to do anything special when using it in the US.

can this product connect to a smart tv for surround sound

Asked by: chris001
You can connect HK Onyx Studio 5 to a Television using an auxiliary cable or via Bluetooth if your TV has a Bluetooth transmitter. However, please be advised that this speaker was designed to play music only and may have delays when connecting to the TV via bluetooth.

I like to use my speaker when I’m getting ready and like to play my music while in the shower but worried about the humidity from the shower and overall dampness damaging my speaker. Will this speaker be able to handle the moist from humidity? 

Asked by: Ryan30
Hello! Sadly, the Onyx Studio 5 does not feature an IPX rating and are not designed to be overexposed to water as it could compromise the controls and sound.

Hello. Will it be possible to connect onyx studio 5 to go play? And is it possible to connect onyx studio 4 to go play?

Asked by: Deniss
Unfortunately, you would not be able to pair a Harman/Kardon Onyx Studio 5 with an Onyx Studio 4. This is because the Dual Wireless Sound featured in the OnyxStudio 5 only gives you the capability to connect to a second Onyx Studio 5 since the wireless dual sound feature only works on the same model. And the Onyx Studio 4 has a different connect feature called HK Connect that uses an app to connect the speaker to another speaker that has the same feature.

Does Onyx Studio 5 support AAC / LDAC / aptX / aptX HD?

Asked by: Valerii
Nope, the Onyx studio 5 supports usual SBC codec.

Is the Onyx 5 REALLY a better sound than the Onyx 4, given it only has 1 woofer & 1 tweeter in mono compared to 2 each on the Onyx 4?  I’m still struggling to get my head around a mono speaker sounding that great, & no stereo even when paired!

Asked by: JamesW
I know it's hard to believe, but it is. I bet you'd be convinced if you compare the two of them together.

Advice please.. not taking price into account, based on best overall sound (prefer slightly more bass but balanced  stereo feel, loudness) which speaker is best from Go+Play, Onyx 4, or Onyx 5. Use is primarily outside on deck, & medium sized lounge. Thx

Asked by: JamesW
In my opinion. I like the Onyx Studio 4 for those things , add the Connect + feature and you should be able to fill your lounge with music loud enough for everybody to hear.
