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

The speaker makes a weird popping noise in a certain range (not all songs but for every song that has sound in that range). It's enough to make me worry especially when some other ppl on youtube had similar experience. Is this a known product flaw? Thanks

Asked by: Inspector Norse
no es que el producto tenga algun defecto pero lo que pasa es que el subwoofer no tiende a aguantar muchos bajos por lo que reproduce un sonido extra&ntilde;o de como si se estubiera rompiendo para evitarlo tienes que utilizar un ecualizador que solo encuentras en spotify pero solo esta para dispositivos ios

i bought harmand kardon studio 2 just 3 month used but now when i switch on Bluetooth speaker switch off i can't used

Asked by: imax
posiblemente hubo algun apagon en tu casa o departamento mientras tenias la bocina conectada a corriente por lo que el cable o el regulador de energia no resistio y se quemo. pero puedes comprar otro en tiendas autorizadas de harman kardon para reemplazarlo

Hi I am interested in this speaker, i had the original aura but it made a funny wind noise, as if you could hear the air coming out the top when you play bass heavy music, can anyone confirm that this is gone?

Asked by: Houtie
realmente con el dise&ntilde;o de esta bocina el sonido del viento sigue presente ya que el cono que tiene para aumentar los bajos solo permite sierta cantidad de bajos sin tener que hacer el ruido del aire forzado

Por qu&eacute; cuando pongo una canci&oacute;n con graves pronunciados, se distorsiona mucho el sonido, como si el woofer estuvera roto.

Asked by: Mauro27
bueno primero tienes que revisar si no esta roto. si no lo esta entonces necesitas un ecualizador para reducir los bajos hasta un limite en el que el subwoofer aguante. el ecualizador lo puedes encontrar en spotify, solo debes tocar en signo de configuracion que esta en la esquina superior derecha, cuando te de las opciones buscas la que diga (reproduccion) y buscas la que diga ecualizador para reducir y modificar el audio a tu gusto

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
first you need to revise if the speaker is the aura studio 2 because the aura studio doesn't have the illumination in the turbine
