SoundSticks Wireless is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 160.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic System for my computer! I bought the "recertified" version of these speakers as they were within my budget. Was a little concerned as I wasn't sure what to expect from recerified stock. The product I received was in all its original packaging and as far as I could tell there was absolutely no difference to a brand new one you would pick up in store. All speakers and cables carefully wrapped and no damage/scratches, etc... Set-up was a breeze with all the included documentation and the sound quality absolutely amazing! I would definitely recommend. I hope this answers any questions first time buyers, like myself, of recertified stocks have and puts any concerns to rest.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful design / Bold Sound I have been listening to classical and jazz on the sound sticks for a month and I am very impressed with its musicality. They fill a small room with clear crisp sound in the mid and high range and the sub woofer provides plenty of base notes. I would prefer the volume to be a dial switch and the power button to be located on the left or right channel speakers rather than on the sub woofer unit. Also the blue tooth and power on indicator lights would be better if both could be turned off for those people who want to fall asleep listing to music. That being said, I would recommend the sound sticks to anyone who appreciates design and music in the same space.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for everyday use! It's amazing and simply compact system which exceed expectation (it is quite small but heavier than look). Really great for listening music, or watching show or movie with really GREAT bluetooth connect quality. Very good sound clarity, effective bass, and enough detailed in higher parts. BUT - this is no Audiophile, or HiFi system so if you expect The Old Harman Kardon Quality (HK- sorry for that) better choose something else. In Sum – Great for fun listening, Great for TV / Computer, Great for Bedroom! p.s. there is no remote control (bass or volume) but you can operate volume by bluetooth device

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best speakers you can buy for under $500 I've looked at just about every available set of speakers you can buy for under $500. As a best buy employee, I have access to tons of choices and can demo any speaker system I wish. After thoroughly testing many speakers. I decided to try the HK SoundSticks. I wasn't disappointed. They offer crystal clear sound at any volume. Although there are only 2 speakers and one small sub, the 4 drivers per speaker, deliver super powerful, high quality sound. They are loud enough to full any room or small apartment. The Bluetooth has surprising range and transmits even through walls and floors. Not to mention they look absolutely stunning. The futuristic and elegant design adds class to any room. Overall an incredible system at an unbeatable price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Sound and Value I am thrilled about this purchase. The sound quality is outstanding and better than I could have ever imagined! The highs are super crisp and sharp with zero distortion and the bass is better than anything of comparable size. I was concerned when I read about the relatively low output wattage but that concern proved unfounded. These speakers are more than powerful enough to fill a very large room with incredible sound. My only complaints are minor and in no way change my opinion of these fine speakers. They really could use a remote for music, but it is most inconvenient when running a TV through them, because (at least with my TV and Time Warner STB), adjusting the TV volume and muting does not affect the speakersound

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Speakers Initially ordered these speakers due to their looks, as well as the reputation of Harmon/Kardon, and all of the great products they produce; however, I was worried about the volume as it's meant for a desk next to the computer. Once I plugged these speakers in my worries went away as my entire living room, bedroom, and kitchen filled with crystal clear sound, along with the shaking of the sub. Not only do these speakers look awesome, but their sound is even better, I would recommend to anyone on the fence about these speakers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Price, Amazing Sound What can I say about the Sound Sticks besides they are amazing! Great compact design for showing them off, or hiding them behind your monitors. The Bluetooth as amazing range and clarity for a Bluetooth speaker, defiantly worth the premium over the Sound Stick III. And the sound, it is amazing what you can get from the tweeters on these speakers. Sure the mid range is not the best, but it is not the worst. The sub is nice and subby and the audio clarity is top notch. Good jib Harmon Kardon!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound, some security issues Have had these speakers for a couple years. They sound great and very easy to use. My only issue with them is the bluetooth discovery feature is always turned on. Living in an apartment, I've had neighbors randomly connect to these speakers and start playing music, videos, etc through them because there is no need to enter a bluetooth code to pair with these speakers. Unfortunately there is no way I've found to turn this off short of turning off the speakers.

Do these have both cable AND wireless connection? Also, isn't there any latency when playing videos or movies, as this usually happens with audio connected via bluetooth (the video playing on the screen and the audio become slightly out of sync).

Asked by: alexmarkus32
Yes, the Soundsticks Wireless does have both cable and wireless connection via Bluetooth. Latency only happens in Bluetooth as you know, so we we would advice using AUXwhen playing movies/videos.

Can I connect these to a regular TV? My TV has two Audio Out jacks that have L and R written above them.

Asked by: arthmost
Sounds like your TV has RCA connections. You can get an RCA to 3.5mm adapter. That should allow you to output from your TV to the HK speakers.

Can the sound sticks be placed on separate floors in a home and still be operational? 

Asked by: Cubmatt
Soundsticks are designed to be near each other as if they are too far apart or on a separate room you can only hear a specific channel(ie. right only, left only). So it is not recommended to do that.

Nachbarn haben sich aus Versehen mit meinen Soundsticks verbunden und ich hörte plötzlich fremde Musik. Kann man Bluetooth abschalten? Kann man fremde Musikquellen blockieren? Kann man die Liste der verbundenen Geräte löschen, z.B. per Reset? 1 Antwort

Asked by: Andi66
Nein, Geräte lassen sich nicht blockieren. Einen extra Reset braucht man nicht durchführen, da dieser bei jedem Abschalten der Lautsprecher geschieht.

Ich beabsichtige den Anschluss an den Fernseher als kleine 2.1 Anlage zu nutzen. Wie kann erreicht werden, dass die Boxen betriebsbereit sich sobald der TV startet und wie verhalten sich die Boxen nach Abschalten des TV.

Asked by: Raute
Die Sounsticks einfach nicht abschalten. Sie verfallen nach rund 5 Minuten automatisch in den StandBy-Modus, aus welchem sie bei eingehendem Audio-Signal (>Fernseher an) auch wieder erwachen.
