Esquire 2 is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 39.
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 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 Amazing speaker I bought this at the beginning of the month, and I absolutely love it! Very clear and crisp sound

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 5 out of 5 by from Great Speaker I recently purchased this from my local electronics shop and I am completely astounded that something this size can produce a sound so vast and powerful. Two words. Purely. Amazed.

How do I know that the speaker is charging?

Asked by: Bentoo
The Esquire 2 has 5 indicator lights on the left side that would indicate show all 5 lights steady at 100% and 1 blinking light at less than 20%. It's similar to how you would interpret a battery level indicator. 1 blinking light - <20%, >0% 1 steady light - around 20% 1 steady light + 1 blinking light <40%, >20% 2 steady lights - around 40% 2 steady lights + 1 blinking light <60%, >40% 3 steady lights - around 60% 3 steady lights + 1 blinking light <80%, >60% 4 steady lights - around 80% 4 steady lights + 1 blinking light <100%, >80% 5 steady lights - around 100%
