  • My favorite so far
    Reviewed by Randy - May 24, 2020

    I have had 8 BLUETOOTH speakers over the past few years. The sound from this is crisp across most of the spectrum. Best sounding speaker I have owned. I am already having separation anxiety for the day it wears out! I hope at that time there is another HK speaker as good as this one to buy. This is a great product. Offers the option of pairing two of them. The only glitch I have noticed is it has a momentary blip or cut in the broadcast that appeared to be a characteristic of the device. To be on the safe side I exchanged it for another same speaker only to find out this one does the same thing. Not worrying about it causing failure now since it is the same in both speakers. Presently I have 3 HK speakers. I also have two Alexa enabled HK Astras. Love them all. The HK Onyx Studio 5 is the best speaker I have ever owned.

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

  • Incredible Bass, Annoying Delay
    Reviewed by BrianT - August 20, 2019

    The bass on this is incredible, equivalent to my home theater 10 inch subwoofer. The main problem is there is a 300ms delay so if you try to use it with anything else (TV speaker, DJ headphones, a second Onyx 5), you get a horrible delay effect. This happens with both the bluetooth and 3.5mm aux plug. There must be a defect in the processing or amplifier. Hopefully a firmware update will fix this. Also, some waterproof protection is needed for portable devices like this. The Onyx 5 is limited to mono sound which is not the best. A least create an app that can play 2 Onyx devices in stereo. Maybe Onyx 6 will be better?

  • Onyx 4 comparison
    Reviewed by DuckMafia - March 2, 2020

    I have the Onyx 1 and 4. I use the Onyx 1 for outside. This model, the 5 is smaller than the 4. It has one less Woofer and one less Twitter. It's also NOT really for outside use. This speaker is meant to be stationary, not mobile. The frame is not metal and the covering is not waterproof at all. I also noticed its good for music but not video playback as the video and audio were not synced completely. I asked Harmon/Kardon customer service and they acknowledge this. You can pair the 5 with another 5 but it doesn't make it a right/left system and won't pair with another Onyx model. It's a good speaker for the price, I just found Onxy 4 a better speaker. Hope this helps.
