The technology that developed so rapidly made various electronic devices more compact and easy to use. Recently, portable technology is widely applied to various electronic devices, such as speakers. Now, we don’t even need to plug the power cable in to use the speaker, because, with portable technology, the speaker can be carried anywhere because it uses battery power.
In addition, audio input also does not use cable anymore but uses Bluetooth technology so that the speakers are directly connected to devices such as smartphones or laptops that are used as music players. One of the leading portable speaker manufacturers is Harman Kardon, whose products always have the highest quality. This time, we will try to discuss and compare two Harman Kardon portable Bluetooth speaker products.
Harman Kardon Go + Play
This Harman Kardon Go + Play speaker is one of the best Harman Kardon products because this portable Bluetooth speaker is able to produce clear audio output even though in size, these speakers are relatively small.
One of Harman Kardon’s flagship speakers has a pretty elegant and beautiful design. In fact, even if this item cannot function, for example, this speaker can still be a decorator or room decoration. However, of course, this is not made so.
The more functional value makes Harman Kardon Go + Play has a high enough rating in the eyes of consumers. Just imagine, in various online shopping portals, this product never gets an assessment of fewer than 4 stars.
As stated earlier, these speakers adapt Bluetooth technology as audio input. Users only need to connect a Bluetooth connection between Go + Play with other devices such as cell phones or laptops that act as media players. Furthermore, Harman Kardon Go + Play is also capable of connecting to 3 devices at once.
This feature makes its use more concise. Say goodbye to traditional loudspeakers that require a lot of cables to operate, both for power and for audio input-output. Furthermore, the Harman Kardon Go + Play speaker is also reinforced by a built-in rechargeable battery capable of operating the speakers for up to 8 hours nonstop. In fact, the Go + Play power can be used for reverse charging to music player devices.
In addition, this speaker has a microphone with noise cancelation feature, so it can help make the sound that goes through the microphone can sound clearer and clearer. Of course, this feature will be very helpful for various user needs or activities.
With a weight of 3.4 kilograms, this Harman Kardon Go + Play has a dimension of 8.3 x 16.4 x 7.1 inch (HWD) and has 2 x 3.5-inch woofers and 2 x 0.7-inch tweeters. In addition, this Harman Kardon Go + Play can also respond to frequencies up to -6 dB or around 50 Hz to 20 kHz.
In terms of connectivity, this speaker is supported by Bluetooth version 4.1 A2DP 1.3, with Bluetooth transmitter range of 2402 MHz to 2480 MHz. Meanwhile, in the power section, this speaker is supplied by a 22.2 Wh rechargeable battery. It can take up to 3 hours to fully charge the battery.
Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 4
It’s different from this one product. Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 4 is one of the newest products from Harman Kardon. This Bluetooth portable speaker is no less reliable than its partner, Harman Kardon Go + Play, in terms of sound clarity. This speaker will provide a new experience in listening to music for users.
Just like Harman Kardon Go + Play, Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 4 also has Bluetooth connectivity as its audio input. Onyx Studio 4 can connect directly to smart devices that function as media players. Unfortunately, this Onyx Studio 4 is only able to connect with 2 devices at once, unlike Go + Play, which is able to connect to 3 devices. However, both of them can only play media from one device, the number of connected devices only helps to switch.
On the other hand, these speakers also have a battery life similar to their relatives, Go + Play, which can operate up to 8 hours. In addition, one thing that makes Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 4 unique is its ability to connect with other Harman Kardon speakers wirelessly, so of course this will produce very bombastic audio output, and also provide a new experience listening to music.
Made from premium ingredients, Onyx Studio 4 has high durability. In addition, a simple and minimalist design is also very beautiful to be placed in various corners of the room. With a size that is not too large, this speaker is able to give a new feel to the room as well as for music playback.
This circle-shaped speaker is 10.2 x 10.9 x 6.3 inch with a weight of only about 2 kilograms. Onyx Studio 4 also has 2 x 0.7-inch tweeters, the same as Go + Play. However, the difference is, Onyx Studio 4 has 2 x 2.9-inch woofers.
