Plus the Harman Kardon Remote app guides you through the easy set up, while giving you full control over your wireless Harman Kardon ecosystem.

  • I liked my Soundstick II speakers better, but those die and can't be fixed.

    1.0 out of 5 stars

    What I liked:
    This unit looks great, super design.
    I love the fact that it has airplay, wireless and dlna connectivity.
    I could What I liked:
    This unit looks great, super design.
    I love the fact that it has airplay, wireless and dlna connectivity.
    I could connect all Apple devices vie bluetooth and wifi without a problem. However, I didn't like the fact that the speaker was visible for other devices outside the house. Meaning, our neighbors could connect to the speaker and start playing their music (??)

    What I didn't like
    The sound is not great, but decent. Not sure the $400 price tag is justified.
    Also, there is no way to equalize the sound output.
    Starts up at full volume sometimes.
    I also didn't like the fact that the remote control app disconnects after 10-15min so every time you want to use the remote control you need to "shut down" the app and restart it. Not cool.
    OK sound, not great ( sounds a little muffled in the mid and highs, bass is good). HORRIBLE HK tech support ( That's why only 1 star, that and the full volume issue). Called them 6 times as I think there is a firmware issue. Sometimes when you power on it starts at FULL VOLUME, bad for speakers AND internal amp)!! After the language barrier ( BAD Chinese/ English) I was promised 3 times a supervisor would call me back. NOPE.

    They also REALLY need a remote as when the phone rings you have to find the app which is open and hit pause. Forget about using the horrible HK app as it times out VERY fast and has to find the speaker again.

    The speaker often disconnects from the sound source so you end up listening to your iOS device only. This is very annoying, especially for such an expensive device.
    Now, what really bothered me is that there is no remote control. Yes, I know, for many people not necessary but why should I always need my iPhone or iPad to turn the volume up/down, change songs, etc.
    Also, you cannot change the sound source from the app, e.g. from wifi to optical, or from optical to wifi/bluetooth, etc. Which means, you need to do it manually in the speaker.
    Finally, why there is not an option to turn on/off the device from the app? Again, you have to do this manually in the device.

    In sum, great looks, excellent choice of connectivity but only decent sound, and definitely not mature enough execution.
    I don't like to return things but this one is definitely going back.

    I liked my Soundstick II speakers better, but those die and can't be fixed. I suspect this will have the same problem. Forget about support from HK. If you want a paperweight, this is an expensive one if it dies.
