Harman Kardon Go + Play Micro

 

When a new child is born, the older one gets neglected, especially if the little one is not so little and looks almost exactly like its older sibling. The younger child always gets all the attention, eats all the good food and is generally loved by...

Personally, I love this dock for the quality of sound it provides. I also like the video output function, although I really don’t know how often I will use it. But I hate the fact that it’s not loud enough for my liking. I also don’t like the ‘Micro’...

Strong audio performance. Attractive Design. Can run on batteries for portability. Full iPod navigation on remote control

Not all that travel-friendly given its large size. Requires eight C-size batteries to operate without AC power

Harman Kardon Go + Play II iPod Speakers Video Review

 

Portable music is really driven by the players these days, so it's difficult to find a system with good quality speakers that can be literally picked up and taken with you to a... party at the beach, for example. When we took at look at the Harman...

Harman Kardon Go + Play II iPod Speakers Review

 

When we took at look at the Harman Kardon Go + Play II it was clear this product screams one thing: "take me out and play me loud". So we did. We took it outside and cranked it up. And it plays loud.

Harman Kardon Go + Play Review and Prices

 

Few iPod speaker systems on the market today seem to find that perfect balance of features and sound. The Harman Kardon Go + Play, however, combines amazing sound, advanced iPod controls and cool looks in one package. The Go + Play boasts a smart,...

Industrial design, amazing sound, advanced iPod controls

Review: Harman Kardon Go + Play: Form hampers function

 

Posted by Dr. MacensteinHarman Kardon has made a name for itself producing some of the best sounding (and most expensive) audio devices available. Their Go + Play iPod speakers maintain both of those proud traditions, but regrettably, some poor design...

Sounds great, doesn't distort at loud volumes, can be battery powered, portable

Handle placement makes navigating iPod difficult, cannot watch iPod video directly from the unit, cannot navigate iPod with remote

Harman Kardon designed a great sounding, great-looking portable speaker system with the Go + Play, but unfortunately the form hampers function. For a speaker designed specifically for the iPod (and the video iPod at that) it is a shame that accessing...

Review: Harman Kardon Go + Play High-Performance Portable Loudspeaker Dock for iPod

 

Whether you'll think Harman Kardon's new Go + Play ($350) is an excellent or merely a very good new iPod speaker system will mainly come down to one question: how many alternatives you've heard. Having tested virtually all of the major brand iPod...

The best-sounding transportable iPod speaker system yet released, with impressive detail across the entire sound spectrum, particularly in the bass department, and capable of doing pretty well at high volumes. Includes a good RF remote control, simple...

Odd iPod dock design makes screen hard to see ; remote's complexity-adding iPod menu navigation features are thereby worthless. Despite boombox functionality, system isn't as ruggedized or iPod-protective as some competing options, and its modern looks...

Listen, i'm musician, i have a music studio! I compared to many others at Bestbuy, the seller played all high power brands, it was not too bad, but the Apples ipod hi-fi had distortion at mid volume and horrible higher volumen, and all frequencies were...

Harman Kardon Go + Play Micro review

 

There is something about an iPod dock these days that suggests that it can no longer be just about the speaker. There has to be some design element added in order to make it stand out from the crowd, whether that be a different shape or an innovative...

Good sound, flash design, well built, portable thanks to battery option

You might think the design is ugly, lacks bass like the B&W Zeppelin

We like the Harman Kardon Go + Play Micro iPod speaker dock for its simplicity and its kooky design. Combine that with a very good sound and this is one player we would recommend

Harman Kardon Go + Play

 

Great bass, detailed mid-range, rich sound, powerful remote, handle makes for great portability

Dock placement is poor, slightly rolled-off low treble notes, no bass or treble controls

Harmon Kardon's Go + Play is a brilliant high-end iPod dock. Its audio is well balanced and almost flawless. The design has one niggling issue, but the large, sturdy handle certainly adds to the unit's portability

Sitting in the upper echelons of the iPod dock category in terms of cost, Harmon Kardon's Go + Play joins units such as the B&W Zeppelin and the Bose ...

Product Specifications

Understated, sublimely functional industrial design. Unsurpassed performance and ease of use. From its flat, protective iPod cradle and smart RF remote to its arching stainless-steel handle, this is the portable loudspeaker dock that only Harman Kardon could build. Harman Kardon Go + Play delivers tight, thunderous bass from high-excursion low-frequency drivers. Just as important, the highs are distinct and crystal clear. Go + Play is AC- or battery-operated, so it will go anywhere your iPod or other music player goes - and make your favorite music sound better when it arrives. And as a multimedia entertainment center, it even sends your iPod photos and video to a TV monitor. But however and wherever you use it, it's the sound that sets Go + Play apart.
