Harman/Kardon Go + Play review: Harman/Kardon Go + Play

 

Harman/Kardon Go + Play

The Harman/Kardon Go + Play iPod boombox offers full, deep sound, along with an eye-catching design, RF remote control, video output, USB output, and aux input.

The Go + Play isn't yet compatible with the iPhone or many recent models of iPods, the power adapter is bulky, the dock is awkward, there's no EQ, no radio, and the design isn't for everyone.

The Harman/Kardon Go + Play is one of the best-sounding portable iPod speaker systems you can buy, but its high price and lack of compatibility with recent iPod models make it a limited recommendation.

Harman/Kardon Go + Play Wireless Bluetooth Speaker

 

Faced with uncertainty over Apple's Lightning connectors and the viability of AirPlay, many speaker developers have opted to update old products with Bluetooth streaming capabilities rather than create entirely new Apple-specific designs. The latest...

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,...

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...

Harmon Kardon Go + Play

 

High-end iPod dock with brilliant audio

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

Harman Kardon Go + Play 2 review

 

A powerful, portable wireless speaker that's an admirable improvement over the original

Open and warm presentation ; Loads of bass ; Detailed and dynamic

May not suit those who crave delicacy and agility

The Harman Kardon Go + Play’s tenderness and controlled aggression make it the yardstick for £250 portable speakers

Harman Kardon Go+Play Wireless: is good sound good enough?

Harman-Kardon Go+Play Wireless review

 

A great Bluetooth speaker with big bass and an easy-to-live-with sound

Detailed, agile treble and midrange ; Huge power ; Lovely design ; Charges via USB

Bass overwhelms a little ; Will not play via USB connection

If it’s big bass and an easy-to-live-with sound you’re after, this is a great Bluetooth speaker. But if you crave finesse, you can do better
