Aura is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 83.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic sound, better than anticipated. I had some $$$ to spend at the Sprint store and I decided to get a bluetooth speaker for the house--in our large open living area. I heard all of the ones there at the store and this one provided the best highs and pounding lows so I picked it up. Not only did it fill my room (with a very high cathedral ceiling) with a full sound but crisp as well. Nothing feels muddy about this sound! I haven't tried to connect the device from a long distance as my old iPhone 4S is now my iPod sitting next to the unit but I have no doubt it'll work as intended. My only gripe was the price, but since I basically got this for free it was no skin off my back. Strongly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition to any Studio I brought this speaker as I had previously brought an older model Onyx. I love the sound and quality of the speaker that I felt the need to add this to my home studio. I am an audiophile and don't buy into the overpriced items endorsed by celebrities. I buy pure audio quality and Harmon Kardon gets it. It does add the 360 room feel without having running wires all over the place. Overall, satisfied with my purchased, and look forward to the future generation of HK products. Just one question, there is another model Aura studio that doesn't feature the AirPlay but does offer a microphone to answer calls, where can people purchase that one?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic sound quality The Aura has amazing sound quality that fills up the room. It's probably one of the only speakers that has a subwoofer/bass. A lot of outer speakers just doesn't cut it. All you hear is the treble and you just don't hear the full sound of a song. The only negative I have is that I work in a multi unit space and since this is a wireless/Bluetooth connected speaker someone else also has a HK speaker and since all the speakers start with HK someone else connected to my speaker without their knowledge and cranked up the volume which wasn't good. We need to be able to change the names of our speaker or password protect it so this doesn't happen again. It's happened multiple times to me.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great sound but connection problems Hi, I have been experiencing problems with the connection to my Aura speaker since the beginning. I have tried to connect it to my iphone, ipad, mackbook air and the connection via wifi or bluetooth would be in any case very unstable. With my iphone and ipad I often experience that the volume goes crazy and keeps going up and down by itself or straight to the maximum volume. It is pretty annoying and, although I love the look and the sound of this device, I cannot be happy with it. Anybody experiencing a similar problem? any tip is welcome! Thanks Camillo

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Uniqe design, Outstanding performance.. I remember harman kardon audio system in BMW and I was aware of brands reputation so I bought this speaker(if you call this perfect sound system just "speaker"). The quality and bass of this speaker is just O U T S T A N D I N G. Once you connect it to your phone with Bluetooth you don't even need to power on next time, It will automatically turn on and play. I've tested a lot of wireless speakers and never seen something like this before! Well done harman.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this thing. The speakers that circle across the bottom seem to come right from Soundsticks which is another great system (I saw an X-Ray of it) I have zero connectivity issues with my 3 Android phones I have used to connect with it in the time I have had it. This device will rock the house or can be heard clearly across my immense back yard. Deep BASS and incredible sound all around. (And a note to the guy that has problems with other people connecting to it late at night... maybe turn it off?)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Aura Review Colorado This was a preorder so I never got to see any reviews online or see one in person. Pros: The sound is great, 360 degree sound projection works very well The design/style is very sleek Once you are connected via bluetooth, volume control and bass are easy via smart phone. Cons: Not as intuitive connecting via Bluetooth or changing controllers or switching from iPhone back to tv. Bluetooth blacks out randomly way to often while watching movies/tv via apple tv. The lower black part of the speaker is covered in fabric, I'm not sure if I like it or how long it will stay in shape.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible connectivity issues I bought this after reading glowing reviews about the sound quality. And I have had nothing but problems with it ever since. It's boxed up and sitting in the closet now. HK support won't answer any of my emails. The wifi connection is terrible, even sitting 2-3 feet from the apple AirPort it cuts out all the time, completely unusable. I also had an instance with the touch pad buttons glitching out and continually turning the speaker up. This happened in the middle of the night, and then somehow someone else's music was playing at full blast, I had to pull the power cord out to get it to stop. It's a lovely design, but makes a better flower vase than speaker, and forget any support from hk.

How can I avoid to BT(bluetooth) connection from anonymous? or Can I turn off BT by configuration? Now It's able to access without passcode even AURA is in not BT paring mode. So someone around my house keep trying to play music using my AURA.

Asked by: David C
When the AURA has not yet been paired to any device via Bluetooth, it will always stay in pairing mode until it has been paired. If someone already paired to it, then they have control over it. The only way to fix this is to reset the AURA, and then pair your own device to it before your anyone gets the chance to. To do this, hold your finger on the input selector field (circle with arrow pointing in) and the power button for at least 6 seconds. Now the previous source is deleted, and you can pair a new source and play from it. At this time I would recommend that you pair your own device to the AURA. From this point forward, if you want to pair the AURA to another device, you will have to press and hold the Bluetooth button in order to put it in pairing mode. No one should be able to connect to it unless they put it in pairing mode.

Can you use two of these in a stereo configuration?

Asked by: Cory
Unfortunately, no. The AURA does not have that feature. You can use two of them at the same time using a splitter AUX cable. However, audio would not be in stereo.

I currently own a HK Aura and really like it BUT how do you clean. I have some dirt/dust that has dropped into the center opening and I need to get the clear lid off to clean. Please inform the method. Thank You

Asked by: BroncoBilly
You should not open the AURA to clean it. While there are screws behind the feet, we do not recommend opening it as it could be dangerous and will void your warranty. The only solution we can recommend, if dirt falls into the AURA, is to try to shake it out through the bass tube. We do not recommend using a vacuum cleaner to suck or blow through the bass tube to remove the dirt to avoid damaging the speaker.

If water fell in the center of the speaker is there a way to remove it without damaging it?

Asked by: Nikkie
Unfortunately, no. The AURA is designed in a manner that sound would depend on the dome. It has a sealant for the dome which, when removed, would drastically effect the sound quality of the speaker.

can you conect it to a smart samsung tv?

Asked by: celia
You can certainly connect it to a TV as long as the TV has an analog line level, digital optical and/or Bluetooth output transmitter. We do not recommend Bluetooth for TV as the video usually processes faster than Bluetooth audio, causing a lag/sync issue.

The reviews indicate many complaints regarding BlueTooth wireless connectivity... has Harman resolved these issues. There is no mention of a line in connection. Can you operate ith without the BlueTooth?

Asked by: Mark N
We do not have any known issues with Bluetooth. In most cases, when people have complained about Bluetooth connectivity it turned out to be that the unit was not actually in pairing mode. As for wired connection, it certainly does have an auxiliary line level input. It can be connected wireless or wired.
