Esquire 2 is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 33.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from No Charging Block? I have always appreciated Harmon Kardon products for fidelity and quality. Disappointed when spending $200 on a Bluetooth speaker (which is above average as far as portable Bluetooth speakers are concerned) then opening box to find a USB charging cable only, but no charging block. Is the expectation by HK that I always charge using my computer's 2.5v USB output current? Charging would take an eternity. I then need to spend my time finding specs in documentation to identify 5v 1 amp max current for speaker, which matches only a few charging blocks, and now I need to go out and spend more money to get a charging block for the unit? The box doesn't even state what's inside. For this reason I am giving 3 stars, and will most likely return unit to store on principle.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from not happy first i had the esquire but after a about six months the cable to charch the esquire became a loos fit. so no contact and no charching. Went to store and after a few weeks i got the equire 2 because mine was beyond repare, the esquire 1 was sold out. now i got a newer model, and behold to my surprice there was no etui for the speaker nor there was a charcher, (cost more as nr 1 but you get less) now iam about six months furter on and the esquire has great difficulties to get charched. even playing the thing connected to a charcher it wil drain the battery and stops working, quite an expensive joke this thing is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing speaker I bought this at the beginning of the month, and I absolutely love it! Very clear and crisp sound

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elegant I bought this because of its looks. It looks very elegant, looks excellent on my desk. I was surprised (pleasantly) that the sound quality was crystal clear and the bass was deep even if it had no baffles. Cons: no carrying case No charger, only cable included. Excellent purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome speaker Bought them a week ago after returning many other bluetooth speakers. I should have started here in the 1st place. I would have saved time. They're awesome, crisp, clear quality sound.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I use this far device lots, every day. This is such a useful device. I brought primarily as a wireless speaker to stream music or radio from my phone or laptop when I am away - which it does effortless. I thought the conference call facility was a bit of a gimmick, but am though surprised how much I use the it not just with colleagues on a conference call but in my office as a speaker phone. Now 80% of my calls are taken through this device - far better volume and sound quality than my iphone and the mics pic up my voice from a good distance. For me its money well spent - don't get hung up by the absence of extras, appreciate how good the kit is HK do give you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Speaker I recently purchased this from my local electronics shop and I am completely astounded that something this size can produce a sound so vast and powerful. Two words. Purely. Amazed.

Can I connect multiple of these together to use as PA speakers. Or place multiple on a table for a conference room conference call?

Asked by: Gauntlet_KI
Unfortunately, you can't connect these speakers together . I would suggest to get a PA speaker since it would be a complete system.

I connect my Esquire 2 to my Windows 10 Microsoft Surface Book via Bluetooth. I use it to make Skype for Business. At random intervals the speaker/mic turn off and I have to press a volume buttons to wake it up. Does the speaker have a sleep to save power

Asked by: ACTIT
Hi, The speakers have a power saving feature that turns the device to sleep if not receiving any audio signals for 10 minutes. It may be that the Esquire 2 is not detecting the signal volume from the source since it's too low hence it goes into sleep/off mode. I would suggest to raise the volume on the source and adjust the volume on the Esquire 2 to make it louder or softer.

Is de Esquire 2 ook te koppelen met de Go + Play?

Asked by: armandlooye
Helaas is het niet mogelijk om de Esquire 2 met andere luidsprekers te verbinden. Tenzij het mogelijk is om meer dan 1 luidspreker met je bron (smartphone, tablet, etc.) te verbinden, dan kan dezelfde muziek op meerdere luidsprekers zoals de Esquire 2 en Go + Play gespeeld worden.

Which speaker is better in sound quality? Squire 2 or onyx studio 3

Asked by: juanpespinosa
These are two very different products. Both have the Harman/Kardon signature audio sound quality. Feature functionality was based on specific design application uses to accommodate our customer demands. Both portable. Yes. You are correct. Sound quality is the same. However the Onyx Studio 3 is louder.
