Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful & Stylish Wanted one of these for so long but so expensive for a wireless speaker, finally bought one yesterday on a mad Wednesday half price sale. Synched up perfectly with my Sony phone first go, tested out with some Grand Funk Railroad & the joint was rockin'. Great sound filled the room without pushing the limits of volume or distortion. Looks great sitting on a benchtop or on a table. The lighting is subtle (perhaps too subtle for some). I would personally like to see a few more colours or some strobe flashing options for a real party effect. Overall a definite must buy if you are wanting a quality bluetooth speaker with style.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Speaker - need some tweaks Just received my unit today. I have a studio about 400 sq ft and it's more than enough to fill the room. This is a great fit for someone with open floor plan because sound can travel 360 w/ no distortion. Unlike the Aura plus, this one does not support airplay, wifi, etc. only Aux and bluetooth. no remote - all as expected. The good: Connected to my echo via bluetooth. was a little worried that the unit will go to sleep automatically after 10 minutes of no input but thank goodness it doesn't turn off completely. Once I spoke to the echo the speaker came right back on. Safe to say I could still use it as an alarm via Echo with no issue. Couple of things that I think could improve: 1. in certain songs it seems to be making this popping noise in the low range. Very annoying. I googled it and others seem to have similar issues. Please let me know if this is a known product flaw or if I have a defective unit) 2. the responsive ambient light does not "respond" to the rhythm of the music. The light moves at its own pace and never stops moving when it's on even if the music has stopped which I find a bit off. If HK could make two ON mode - "responsive" or stable - it would be a lot better for me personally. Can't speak to durability yet but overall I find this speaker enjoyable so far.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It says wireless Does the speaker always have to be plugged in? When I unplug the cord the unit turns off...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It shuts down and doesn't got up. I'm a big fan of HK, I bought a SoundStick a long time a go and they were simply the best, unfortunately I broke them by accident and I felt it was time to get something new and I decided to go for the Aura Studio 2, they are connected to the TV through an audio cable as I did with my old SoundSticks. After a while if the TV is on mute the Aura shuts itself down, now when I unmute the TV they just don't come up to live again. The same happens when I shutdown the TV and then turn it on they just wont start up until I go right next to the set and push the power button, so I can use my TV remote to turn my TV on and off, but I do have to go all the way to the Aura to turn them on and it's kind of annoying. I couldn't find in the user's manual nothing about turn this "power savings" feature off so I can use them as my old SoundSticks. Another annoying thing is that when I got a new message on my iPhone they connect themselves to the Auras and stop whatever music movie I was listening on them for about 5 seconds, when the sound finally returns its volume its fixed on the iPhone volume instead of the original volume I've set for the TV. I find myself in the position to turn the Aura 2 BT off but noticed that I don't even know how to do it or if its possible, so I had to "unrecognized" the Aura on my iPhone and all the other products they use and then reconnect them when I want to use them. Is there any solution to any of this problems? Thanks

I just got an aura studio2 ... does it needs to be connected to the charger each and every time if I want to play music ??

Asked by: Kilaru Venkatesh
Yes, it must be plugged into power. There is no battery and your power adapter is not a charger.

Is there a way to turn off the power savings to keep them on? I have them hooked to my TV and they don't come up alive when I turn the TV on. Also, I have them connected to my iPhone and they &quot;auto connect&quot; all the time pausing the current TV audio.

Asked by: RunningMan
I discovered a way to keep my Aura Studio 2 powered up. Originally it was connected via line cord to an Amazon Echo Dot. It would power off after a period of inactivity. After pairing the Echo Dot for Bluetooth and hooking the line cord back up to Aux I found that the Aura Studio 2 remained on. Even though it uses the line for the audio, having the Bluetooth connection evidently keeps it alive so it doesn't power off. An additional Bluetooth device can be paired. It will interrupt and take priority over the Aux connection when it is active. No doubt this is so the speakerphone can work with a Bluetooth attached phone.

Hi my aura studio 2 does not have the light button that this manual shows, therefore I can't control the ambient light very well,only the LED ring work in mine and I can't figure how to turn the other ligjts on,the ones in the turbine.help pls.

Asked by: Andy215
It&rsquo;s on the left hand side, in line with the rest of the controls. You just touch that side button and it will fade on, or fade off. Took me a few mins to figure out too

Does the Aura 2 have a rechargeable battery this time?

Asked by: denerrn
The Aura Studio 2 does not.. added a few little things and an ambient light, beside the awesome improved sound quality.. however, sadly, no mine is wall power only or inverter in the car for the outdoors camping and whatnot. Hope this helps. ;)
