Harman Kardon Aura

 

The Harman Kardon Aura is a great-looking, great-sounding, one-piece wireless speaker system.

Powerful, clear sound. Attractive design. Lots of connection options

Awkward touch controls on the speaker itself

The Harman Kardon Aura looks more like a work of art than a speaker, but it can do the job of both. While the $399.95 device looks striking, with a clear, curved dome and subtle lighting, it's also a functional and powerful wireless speaker that...

Harman/Kardon Aura wireless speaker

 

An interesting design is just the start; this thing can produce sound that will turn your cap back

Interesting design ; Easy to use ; Very good overall sound quality ; Impressive low-frequency response

Bass tended to be too strong for trance ; Rock could've use more mid-range

Harman Kardon Aura review - Pocket-lint

 

The Harman Kardon Aura may look like The Jetson's spaceship has collided with a ultra-modern kitchen blender but this quirky design housing is actually

Space-age design looks great, excellent sound quality at all volumes, loud output warm bass sits perfectly in the mix, great separation, omni-directional output produces all-encompassing sound

Occasional erratic volume behaviour after turning on, always seeking Wi-Fi network can interrupt Bluetooth connection, design won't suit all

Space-age looks deliver a sound that's grounded in the here and now: the Harman Kardon Aura is an immensely capable wireless home speaker, whatever genre you throw at it.

Harman-Kardon Aura

 

A stunning looking speaker, but one that doesn't have the ‘wow' sound or usability to boot

Creative design ; well built ; Tonally balanced ; Room-filling sound

Lacks detail and dynamics of rivals ; Loose bass ; No dedicated remote ; App lacks features

Had this test been all about looks, this speaker would have bagged five stars – no problem.

Harman Kardon Aura

 

It's refreshing when beauty isn't just skin deep

Great design ; Minimal footprint for a single enclosure speaker ; Room filling sound ; Great connectivity options

You don't get extreme precision or detail

The speaker is quite a sight to behold and quite the conversation starter. If these factors and the connectivity options appeal to you what you get is a nice sounding speaker thrown in. Besides if you buy it straight from the company you get the Aura...

Harman Kardon Aura Review: Beautiful on the Outside

 

The Harman Kardon Aura is a really expensive wireless speaker with a wacky yet futuristic design and a plethora of connectivity options.

The box price of the Harman Kardon Aura is Rs. 34,990 but it is selling for a discount of Rs. 5,000 on Harman's official website. We don't think its performance warrants even that price. The

Harman Kardon Aura

 

Meet the Karman Kardon Aura, a speaker system that looks more like a NASA-designed deep-fat fryer than a high-end audio product, but we can assure you it's very much the latter. Harman Kardon is known for its tip-top sound quality and extravagant...

Space-age looks make for equally epic sound, and the Harman Kardon Aura delivers on both fronts, making it a very attractive speaker system for your home. It'll surely be a conversation starter, but its price and lack of decent buttons might not be...

A cylindrical dome shaped powerful standalone speaker that delivers excellent sound

Consumer review by: Speedydannyboy (johnlewis.com)

Great speaker

 

Really good sound quality, retains clarity at high volume. Hurts my ears before any distortion is heard! Bass is good and 'tight' but not face melting low. Think more hifi than teenager dub step. Sound fills a large room well and is a fantastic...
