Onyx Studio 3 is rated 4.875 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loudest Bluetooth you can get Heavy Bass, extremely loud for it's size, it can shake the room and you can feel the bass in your body. It's maybe 3X's as loud as the Bose speaker, extremely clean flat sound. It's not small but still portable, I doubt I will take it many places if any but having that ability is a positive. I can't get over how loud this thing is, A++ I picked it up to replace a speaker for my office but now that I am testing it on my TV for the weekend I think it's the new TV speaker. Buying 2 for stereo still makes it cheaper and a better package then a sound bar. I've seen and tried a lot of speaker and this little guy takes the cake, the price makes it an easy choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound! Especially With Duel Sound! Purchased 1 day ago after watching videos and reading reviews for wireless Bluetooth speakers in the $200-500 price range. I ended up buying a pair of the Onyx Studio 3's for the Wireless Duel Sound feature and couldnot be happier with my purchase. The sound from one is fantastic but having two side by side the sound is SO much more dynamic! It links very easily and is crystal clear sounding.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Onyx 3 I bought the Onyx 2 on sale and the blue tooth would disconnect every once in a while on its own. The buttons where also hard to push and one of the legs broke on a hard surface. I contacted Harmon and they relaxed the unit. I did go a month in between shipping the old unit in and getting the new one. But I'm happy they upgraded to the Onyx 3 because I didn't like the previous model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing company, service, product! Enjoyed, actually loved the Onyx Studio 2 for more than 2 years. Great outdoors for our pool parties due to quality of sound. Sound is fabulous! Called customer service and was overwhelmed with the service provided as it relates to replacing with Onyx 3. Recommend to all my friends and family. Will be purchasing additional products in my new home!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great upgrade I bought the Onyx 2 at Christmas season. Needless to say the hand pressure that was required to press the on/off button resulted in the speaker leg breaking. I returned the Onyx 2, and the Harmon Kardon Staff shipped me the Onyx 3. It is has greater sound and easier buttons control. I'm satisfied with the upgrade!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just purchased but have questions Onyx 3 has great sound, really does. I was in the process of by another but came across the go+play on the website and it seems far superior higher sound output, longer battery life and a USB port. Just want to know y does it cost less and am I able to pair the onyx 3 with the go + play

Li-ion has a limited number of charge cycles. Can this unit be operated straight from the wall outlet?

Asked by: Bam Bam
Yes, you can use the ONYX STUDIO 3 while it is charging. This won't ruin the battery life in anyway. However, you will experience extended charging time when listening and charging at the same time. And when it is fully charged, it will run directly off the electricity.

Can the Onyx Studio 3 be connected to a JBL Xtreme for Dual play?

Asked by: bsl100
No, the wireless dual sound feature is only available for the ONYX STUDIO 3 and GO+ Play at this time. Although the XTREME has a connect feature, it only works with the JBL Connect enabled speakers such as the FLIP 3, CHARGE 3, PULSE 2, and BOOST TV.
