Rated 5 out of 5 by jillybeans from Packs a punch! I have had my speaker for a year now, and love, love, love the sound. For such a small speaker the sound it outstanding! My friends, don't realize what I am talking about until I turn it on and turn it up. Great for a round the bonfire.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WWspb from The sound is just amazing!!! I heard this speaker when I visited my Dad. And I loved it so much I had to order one for myself. Sound is loud and clear . Good balance between highs and mids and the Bass is deep.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Trentonmack from Back side passive radiator I got this for a Black Friday deal as it was about 300 dollars off its regular price, it was a steal so I took it. So far I am absolutely amazed by what it has done for me so far, definitely the best portable speaker I've ever had, one problem I did notice although, which is the reason I'm writing this review, is the passive radiator on the back of the device, at any volume, it makes a noise with heavy bass, it sounds as if someone is tapping on the metal, I can hear the noise at any given volume, I have also noticed that with some songs, at about half volume the back radiator almost cannot take the bass and I thought I was going to blow it so I quickly turned the volume down, you could see the metal not coming in and out perfectly straight but bouncing side to side and then in and out, the noise also sounded very airy and I feared for the speaker, the song was emotional-flux pavilion. I do not know if this is just my speaker but this definitely is a letdown.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Iko Mesi from Excellent ! Excellent portable home speaker and excellent buy ! Harman Kardon Onyx Studio . So compact dimensions and the sound is like a large floor speakers ! Amazing sound ! Deep rumbling low tones (no distortion , any volume level and kontrabass/double bass sounds like a real instrument ), very good mid tones and vocal, clear, ringing high sounds ! Depending on the device. Pc, smartphone or whatever the Bluetooth audio device (I myself use sound equipment, which all have a 24 bit 192kHz DAC). Universal: plays and performs all music genres very well !Plays very good low-quality MP3 files - 24bit 192kHz music files ! If it is plugged in to electric socket, you will be playing a much higher volumes and even purer sound ! Every day more and more want to listen to music through the Harman Kardon Onyx Studio ! There are many different qualities of music and videos in the internet and this is the best universal ,compact , bluetooth loudspeaker in its class ! Excellent ! If this speaker is placed on the rear closed shelf , then you hear the sound even more powerful and deeper bass ! It is this type of speaker with the usual open-box serves as a megaphone! Try a variety of shelves and open wooden crates! This universal speaker sound is excellent every way and in any kind open box !

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dondon from Excellent lows & highs for it's size I got this speaker as a replacement for my Onyx Studio 2 which I returned because of it's flimsy legstands that tend to break overtime for which I'm sure several buyers have experienced. I'm glad that they came up with a redesigned sturdy legstands which is the one I'm reviewing now. Sound quality for all Onyx models are basically identical and all of them have Robust sound considering how small the drivers are. At fist glance you would think that it that the whole unit is the driver itself especially when you hear the bass output it makes. But you will surprise to find out when you remove the front speaker cover that it's only a speaker case housing 4 small drivers and two passive radiators. Not to mention the amplifier and function controls in it. It's amazing what great electronics and passive radiators can do to deliver full full bodied sound with outstanding clarity and power for such small speaker drivers. the only thing is you have to pay big time to own it. Buying it on black Friday is the way bto go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jsv123 from FINALLY !!! I've had my Onyx for 3 weeks now, still amazed every time I turn it on. I've tried just about everything out there, Big Jambox was the biggest sound I found. First saw this back in the fall and knew it was THE ONE. I was right. This speaker is amazing. The sound is exceptional at any volume level, and cranked up the bass feels like its going through you. It's a new level of sound for Bluetooth portable speakers. It is rather large to be very portable, but who cares? It's the sound that matters!! So I say skip everything else and spring for this, worth every cent.

I just received an Onyx, but there is no manual in the box. Where do I find an operating manual?
On this page, under Product Details, an Owner’s Manual, Quick Start Guide and a Spec Sheet for the ONYX is available for download.
