Great Sound and loud enough. Better than Bose blue tooth speakers in same price range.

  • from Mission, BC

best speaker ever! A++++++

this speaker is the best! amazing sound that fills the entire main floor when cranked (not even at full blast) its super loud and super clear!!!! worth every penny (i would even pay full price for one!) HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!

  • from Guelph, ON

A good speaker

This speaker was on sale for a very good price. The Bluetooth paring between my iphone and the speaker is fairly straight forward. It sounds quite similarly to Bose mini Bluetooth speaker. I don't feel that "wow" difference as other reviewers do. Compared to my Pioneer CD Receiver Micro System though, sound volume from this HK speaker can be tuned much louder. This HK speaker is advertised as a portable product. However, personally I wouldn't carry it around due to its bulky design. In this case, the Bose soundlink mini 2 can do a much better job.

  • from Gatineau, QC


Love the design, amazing sound best wireless speaker I've ever owned :)

  • from Markham, ON

do not think ,just buy it

probably the coolest look in the bluetooth speaker range and sounds amazing what else you want, bought it on boxing day sell, so pleased.

  • from Port Coquitlam, BC

Excellent sound quality

Just bought this speaker for Boxing Day. Great discount as worth every penny (4.5 stars)!! Sound quality is exceptional with clear notes from the drivers and great balanced base. Not compact like the Bose mini as It is about the height of a soccer ball, but is portable around different rooms, or deck. Well worth the buy, you will not be disappointed!! Have not had a chance to test the battery life yet.

  • from Montreal


This speaker sounds better than the bose soundsystems. The bass is awesome and love that you can move it from room to room. Only problem is the legs in back cannot be removed making it hard to bring on travel.

  • from Burnaby

Love it

Its worth spending money.

  • from Richmond, BC

Great Speaker, Battery Doesn't Last...

The sound is great, but treble is slightly recessed. Additionally, the speakers also cut off the lower frequencies, although understandably as they are not large enough to produce the low sounds. The design is nice but one needs to be careful when handling the speaker as the rear radiator is exposed and easy to touch. The size also makes it a bit unwieldy but the handle helps. Because of the lack of battery life, i need to carry the charger with me when i know i need the speaker for a longer period. All in all, if you can find this speaker at a reduced price, it is definitely worth the money. If you're not planning on moving the speaker and using it as a living room speaker, then this is perfect!

  • from Mississauga, ON

Great Speakers

Hands down these are one of the best sounding Bluetooth speakers out there. Looks extremely elegant, can easily be moved from one room to the other. Would not recommend to use outdoors. The only con with these speakers is the battery life of about 5-6 hours after a full charge.

  • from Ottawa, ON

Beautiful sound!

Amazing sound! Worth every penny! Bass is smooth, highs are crisp, mids are clear and has great presence. Obviously requires you feed it good quality audio like any high end speakers Battery life can be a little short at high volumes but thats to be expected.

  • from Edmonton, AB

Just I can say, It is great. There is nothing to say.

Just I can say, It is great. There is nothing to say. I never hear the sound like that. Just lovely...............................

  • from Kamloops, BC


Took this to the lake and it filled the whole campground with crystal clear tunes. With 2 of these jacked together you could have one loud dance party. Most people thought i had a big stereo system in my trailer. Just a smartphone and this speaker.

  • from Toronto, ON

Very impressive

This speaker is easy to use, carry around, and the sound from this speaker fills any space beautifully, from outdoor, a living room, kitchen, to a bathroom. Great for a variety of music genres. The sound is clean and at high volumes the bass does not become distorted unlike many other speakers. Highly recommended.

  • from Burlington, ON

Well worth the money

Should be noted that I bought this for [price] off on the July boxing week sale, but after using it for a cottage weekend with friends and everyone being blown away by it, I can safely say that I would be just as satisfied having paid the full retail [price] price for it. It completely fills the room with crystal clear sound and surprisingly solid bass from the built in subwoofer. We have a rather above average size living room at the cottage with no real close walls for the sound to bounce off of but we actually had to turn down the speaker in order to hear ourselves talk. One gripe would be that for [price] you'd think it would include a carrying case, but it doesn't. Although it's a rather odd shape for a speaker, so making a case for it might have been difficult, but I'm fine just using the retail box to transport it around.

  • from Windsor, ON

Great sounding speaker

Bought this speaker with the intention of returning, they didn't have the one I wanted in stock. Thought it looked a little weird in the store, but after bringing it home a listening to it for a full weekend I have to say I'm pretty impressed with the quality of sound & have no plans of returning it. Works well outside, fills a lot of area with nice sound & it is quite loud when you need it to be. Battery life could be longer, but not a bit deal. Good overall unit, especially for the discounted price I paid, well worth it.

  • from North York, ON

Rocks the Bose

It has nailed Bose in terms of the Bass. This thing has tremendous bass. It definitely is a great buy. You would not regret. Amazing bass!

  • from Richmond Hill, ON

Wonderful Speaker

WOW! this speaker is super good. Some reviewers in other sites complain about form-factor, but that to me is very attractive. Very unique design which works for me.

  • from Markham, ON

Best Sounding Bluetooth Speaker

Got it on sale. Far better sound than any speaker available for anything close to the sale price. Nice crisp highs. Nice tight base. Powerful enough to fill a gym or a backyard with great sound. Sound quality doesn't deteriorate even at maximum volume.

  • from Etobicoke

Simply Amazing!!

This speaker is fantastic, excellent crystal clear sound quality, deep bass from that awesome subwoofer located on the back of the speaker which definitely pounds, and room filling sound makes this the best portable speaker I have ever heard. Great design as well, the black and copper colour contrast looks beautiful too! Only con is its battery life, ranges between 2.5-4hrs depending on how loud you listen to your music. Otherwise, the Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 2 is worth every penny, especially at its price when on sale :)

  • from Woodbridge, ON

Amazing Nugget

Wonderful speaker. I tested all the bose, beats, sony and whatever else was on the shelf and this was outstanding. Would highly recommend this product.

  • from Kitchener

Avoid at all cost!

While you will be hard pressed to find a better sounding portable speaker, the build quality is absolutely abysmal!! One of the cheap plastic feet broke off within weeks of my purchase. And after a fall from table height onto the floor it stopped working all together. In total, I probably used the speaker less than five months. I still have one of the older style HK ipod docks and after more than 10 years it still looks and sounds great. Shame on you HK for making such an inferior product! A word to the wise, check out the Fugoo Tough XL instead.

  • from Chilliwack, BC

onyx studio 2

Amazing. This little unit just fills the room, worth every penny.

  • from Brampton, ON

Harmon Kardon Onyx Sudio2

Exceptional sound easy to connect thru BlueTooth.

  • from Bolton, ON

Good Sound, Terrible Design

Sound quality and range for the bluetooth was impressive. However, for a 'portable' speaker, this thing is very poorly designed. The 2 support stands on the back of the speaker do not come off and are actually moulded to the unit itself, making it almost impossible to transport without having to awkwardly place the speaker into whatever you're carrying (backpack, box, suitcase, etc). Just today one of the legs snapped off and the speaker is essentially useless now - we'll see how well some super glue can hold up. If this is a speaker that you're going to buy, place is one spot, and have constantly plugged in to a wall, maybe it's for you. But for a PORTABLE speaker, a key feature of it being portable is the ease of transport, and this speaker is terrible for that.

  • from Winnipeg, MB

Great sound

Love the sound . Great bass. The only thing that I don't like is it often cuts out for a few seconds when using Bluetooth. I don't know if this is normal.

  • from MILTON, ON



  • from Montréal, QC

Good value when on sale

Bought this at a discount around christmas, for [price]. Very easy to carry, looks good and sounds much better than any other speaker in that price range. Very easy to connect and its super portable.

  • from Winkler mb

ammmazing sound

best portable sound you'll find. It sounds great and easy to pair...

  • from Toronto, ON


Absolutely love this! You won't regret buying this if you just plan to have it in your living room. Not something you would want to take to the beach or with you on vacation.

  • from London, ON


First off, the look of this speaker is very 60's - so cool! I bought it on sale - I was looking at the Sonos 5 and saw this as a much less expensive option with excelelnt sound. Listening to jazz through Spotify has reminded me how much sound is lost when you are just listening through headphones. Dave Brubeck Take Five was a rediscovery! Sound Qulaity. Good - Midrange and high end. Bass is not great but then it isn't a subwoofer! Battery life - I only listen for a maximum of 2 hours usually so no complaints. I also have it plugged in most of the time. Portabilty - Nice handle at top for moving. Features - It is Bluetooth, so has the limitations associated with that, but you can stream from your phone, AppleTV, Airplay - I haven't found that to be a limitations.

  • from Vancouver, BC

Great speaker

Great sound,easy to use, fast delivery...overall a perfect portable speaker!Well worth the money!

  • from Waterloo, ON

Fantastic product!

I was looking at Sonos but decided to get this instead at a bargain price when it was on sale. The build and sound quality are fantastic! I only gave 3 stars for the battery life because it has been plugged in and I haven't tested the battery life but I'm assuming it wouldn't be an issue. The DLNA feature is a must and it works very well. I am using Plex Media server to stream my music to this speaker and was easy to set up and works flawlessly. I also stream using the SiriusXM app from my phone and iPad and similarly this works perfectly. Can't go wrong with the Harman Kardon brand when it comes to speakers!

  • from Scarborough, ON

Great Speaker

After a lot of research and testing of many Bluetooth and wireless speakers, when I saw the Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 2 on sale, I decided to pick one up. The sound quality is top notch. A rich full sound with good lows and clear, crisp highs. No issues pairing with various devices and good Bluetooth range from basement to 3rd floor distance without any hiccups.

  • from mississauga

Good buy

Sharp looking, great sound...surprised how clean the bass comes through.. Great value for [price] Reccomended

  • from London, ON


Bought this on sale during Boxing Week sale - thank you BestBuy! Great deal in Canadian dollars - would not buy if not on sale. Sound is excellent. It is Bluetooth - not "wireless" as in your internet. That said, most phones, laptops etc are Bluetooth so perfect unless you are looking for a wireless surround sound system - and you will pay for that (See Sonos). This is a really good speaker, at a great price (on sale)- Thank you Best BuY x2!

  • from Brantford, ON


fantastic sound, easy set up Bluetooth speaker and looks pretty regal in my living room.

  • from Victoria, BC

USB Port

The sound of this unit is great, but in the end I went with the Marley Get Together which has a USB port. My Ipod battery gives out long before the battery on the Marley, but I just plug the Ipod into the USB port and charge in. I also charge off the same port when I'm not using the system. To me this is a major advantage, and the sound of the Marley is pretty good too.

  • from Edmonton, AB


One of the best speaker with amazing sound quality. Worth buying.

  • from Caledonia, ON

Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 2

For a portable bluetooth speaker, the sound quality is awesome and i highly recommend it to anyone looking for a hi quality speaker

  • from Vancouver, BC

Harmon Kardon Onyx Studio 2

This is my 2nd Harmon Kardon product and is simply AMAZING . The quality of sound coming out of this little unit rivals anything Bose puts out.

  • from Richmond, BC

Great Value and Good Quality

You will find your money worth to buy this wireless speaker.

  • from Winnipeg

Amazing sound - a must buy!

I got this on Boxing Day and I am totally pleased with my purchase. The sound quality, loudness and bass is perfect. it's a shame the battery doesn't last that long, but I usually have somewhere to plug it into anyways so it doesn't bother me but to other ppl I can see it a problem. the sound quality alone makes up for all the negatives (which isn't much). This isn't a small speaker so don't catogorize it with the smaller blue tooth speakers. Though it is big, it can still be moved from place to place. however I haven't really moved it much because it changes a room with its look and sound that I no longer want to move the speaker and make the room it was in back to its boring self.

  • from Mississauga, ON

Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 2

Great little speaker! Don't think it was worth the original price. Overall satisfied with the sound quality.

  • from Markham, ON

In General ..... Surpassingly Terrific Sound

The sound , in general , is shockingly good . An enormous degree of bass , vey open , transparent mids and highs and distortion free volume galore . My only wish is the the mid range had a little stronger presence in the overall sound . Having said that ..... I can say that this is very likely the best mid-priced bluetooth speaker on the market . Give it a listen .... you will be surprised by what you hear . Of this , I can assure you .

  • from Burlington, ON

Better than Bose

This is the second Harman Kardon Onyx speaker I've purchased... the first one for my son. We liked the sound and Bluetooth feature so much, we decided to get one so I could listen to SiriusXM from my iPhone. I have had this one for 2 weeks and I'm really happy with it. I would highly recommend this one. I did get it on sale just before Xmas for [price]

  • from Mississauga, ON


I bought the Harmon Kardon Onyx Studio 2 Bluetooth wireless speaker a couple of weeks ago, and I absolutely love it. I tried quite a few others - Bose, Marley, JBL, Sony, and this one stood out by a mile. The JBL also good, but this amazing... so happy I got it. It's also LOUD. I feel like I could power a small party with how loud this speaker is. The highs, midrange, and bass are all more than sufficient. I mainly use it in the basement whilst I work out, but in the summertime, I will definitely use it outdoors as I BBQ. Cheers!

  • from Toronto, ON

Amazing Bluetooth Speaker

Im a music lover and like many of us, I happened to have more than a handfull of bluetooth speakers around the house, a couple of them are more expensive than this one and from brands that are considered top notch when it comes to sound, bought this one a couple of months ago and as soon as i brought it home it became my number one bluetooth speaker, it just doest not dissapoint and looks great compared to most portable speakers!

  • from Toronto, ON


Amazingly beautiful music and sound! The design is fantastic too. This has also been my biggest score during Boxing Day!

  • from Toronto, ON

Love this Speaker

Absolutely love this - just make sure you get it on sale. Great bass, huge volume.
