Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 3 - Reviews, Prices, Specs and Alternatives
Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 3
Harman Kardon has been battling with JBL and Bose in the portable speakers market lately and I’d say all three are neck in neck with their own share of goods and bads. Stretching the meaning of the word “portable” the Onyx studio 3 is a very nice piece of equipment to have at home.
Why the quotation marks on the word? This is because it weighs 4.5 pounds and has a battery life of 4.5 hours as well. Moving this around your house is as portable as it gets. However, you probably won't want to carry this one with you to the beach or a campground.
But the beauty of this speaker is that it is Bluetooth compatible and has a built in microphone should you have paired this with your phone so you can answer important calls The maximum volume and sound quality is so great, you’d swear you were listening to a full on speaker system.
Price wise the street price is competitive, if not on the expensive side for these types of speakers at around $400. What the Onyx studio lacks in portability it makes up for beauty and some freedom of use at home, and what it lacks in functionality it compensates with great sound quality. This is a speaker you want if you need something really loud that still sounds great.
