Esquire 2 is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 29.
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 LOVE IT!!! This speaker is perfect! I love the look of it, it sounds amazing and I use it for conference calls and it is the best speaker- headset I have used for calls. I've been told that I sound very clear using the speaker phone.

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.

Can I connect multiple of these together to use as PA speakers. Or place multiple on a table for a conference room conference call?

Asked by: Gauntlet_KI
Unfortunately, you can't connect these speakers together . I would suggest to get a PA speaker since it would be a complete system.

I connect my Esquire 2 to my Windows 10 Microsoft Surface Book via Bluetooth. I use it to make Skype for Business. At random intervals the speaker/mic turn off and I have to press a volume buttons to wake it up. Does the speaker have a sleep to save power

Asked by: ACTIT
Hi, The speakers have a power saving feature that turns the device to sleep if not receiving any audio signals for 10 minutes. It may be that the Esquire 2 is not detecting the signal volume from the source since it's too low hence it goes into sleep/off mode. I would suggest to raise the volume on the source and adjust the volume on the Esquire 2 to make it louder or softer.

Which speaker is better in sound quality? Squire 2 or onyx studio 3

Asked by: juanpespinosa
These are two very different products. Both have the Harman/Kardon signature audio sound quality. Feature functionality was based on specific design application uses to accommodate our customer demands. Both portable. Yes. You are correct. Sound quality is the same. However the Onyx Studio 3 is louder.

I have Esquire2 speaker only 6months old, i can't use more then half an hour when it has full off charge. Also indicator shows 4 bars or 3 bars and then turn off it self.

Asked by: sertac
What you are experiencing is not normal. Try charging the ESQUIRE 2 using another cable, power adapter and power source. If these thing didn't work, please try to reset the speaker by simply pressing and holding Volume + & phone button at the same time while it's on. When the unit is reset, it will power off, and turn on the unit again, and it is reset. If the issue persists, please submit a case at www.harmankardon.com/support-contact.html and the Customer Service Team will be more than happy to further assist you.
