Esquire 2 is rated 4.166666666666667 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from not happy first i had the esquire but after a about six months the cable to charch the esquire became a loos fit. so no contact and no charching. Went to store and after a few weeks i got the equire 2 because mine was beyond repare, the esquire 1 was sold out. now i got a newer model, and behold to my surprice there was no etui for the speaker nor there was a charcher, (cost more as nr 1 but you get less) now iam about six months furter on and the esquire has great difficulties to get charched. even playing the thing connected to a charcher it wil drain the battery and stops working, quite an expensive joke this thing is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small form factor and a great output How can I establish a wired connection with my desktop to use Microphone as well as speakers both? I am using ASUS X99 Deluxe motherboard and it has several connection options and that's confusing me a little bit. I read in some answers below it's recommended to use 3.5mm jack with 3 rings(aka TRSS or 4 pole cable). Does the cable on the PC end need to have a splitter, so that it can go in the line-in and mic-in ports of the motherboard(ASUS X99 deluxe)? If possible please provide a full description or the name of the cable. Thanks!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from No Charging Block? I have always appreciated Harmon Kardon products for fidelity and quality. Disappointed when spending $200 on a Bluetooth speaker (which is above average as far as portable Bluetooth speakers are concerned) then opening box to find a USB charging cable only, but no charging block. Is the expectation by HK that I always charge using my computer's 2.5v USB output current? Charging would take an eternity. I then need to spend my time finding specs in documentation to identify 5v 1 amp max current for speaker, which matches only a few charging blocks, and now I need to go out and spend more money to get a charging block for the unit? The box doesn't even state what's inside. For this reason I am giving 3 stars, and will most likely return unit to store on principle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality sound! Got this impressive little sound machine a month ago and I always look forward to using it. Amazing bass, clarity and volume for such a perfectly portable unit. Looks sharp and works great inside and outside!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elegant I bought this because of its looks. It looks very elegant, looks excellent on my desk. I was surprised (pleasantly) that the sound quality was crystal clear and the bass was deep even if it had no baffles. Cons: no carrying case No charger, only cable included. Excellent purchase.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not very plug and play friendly Bought this for Christmas, synced, paired and connected and no sound. No manual available on line from HK. Works great with Iphone, and I love the speaker, but getting it to work with my computer is frustrating. Waiting on HK to help me or I will take it back to staples.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome speaker Bought them a week ago after returning many other bluetooth speakers. I should have started here in the 1st place. I would have saved time. They're awesome, crisp, clear quality sound.

can you play mp3 music from usb drive ?

Asked by: kalsar
Unfortunately you can't, the USB port on the ESQUIRE 2 is only used for charging mobile devices and would not be able to read data from any USB drives.
