The Onyx Mini has a round shaped speaker. At the top of the device, you will find all the controls like Bluetooth, power button, volume rockers and a phone mode button. As for the Bluetooth, it connects fast and can connect up to three devices simultaneously. The stylish design can blend well in any office or home set up.
The Onyx Mini has a wireless dual sound feature in which if you connect another Harman Kardon with the same feature, you will experience double the sound output plus a truly surround sound. Audio quality is truly great.
Now,we do admit that we are not audiophiles but we know great sound. Getting to max volume is impossible because it will really blow your eardrums off and neighbors will curse you for the loud music. Whether watching a movie on Netflix or sound tripping via Spotify, audio is excellent whatever volume you are in.
You can also use the Onyx Mini for phone calls. It has a built in microphone that has a noise and echo cancelling technology. This also works on Skype and Viber calls.
Harman Kardon promised 10 hours of playtime and it did lives up to the promise. We managed to squeeze five movies on Netflix before the Onyx Mini turned red. It is also the same thing when we streamed music using this device.
The Hardman Kardon Onyx Mini delivers all its promises – excellent audio, great battery life, and stylish design. For 7,999 it can be your all-rounder speaker for your home and a perfect music companion for work.
