amazon Harman Kardon Aura Plus reviews
With the wireless speaker market overcrowded with a slew of designs over the years, HK Aura has shown it to be the most eye-catching. And obviously there will be people looking at things that look like spaceships combined with this blender that says “this is a speaker?”
Aura has a cylindrical design with a diameter of more than 20cm, and a height of less than 30cm. Such size makes it easy to place Aura anywhere in your home. Just having a space and a socket for power supply, you can set the magnet to attract all of the look in there.
The upper plastic arch, which is actually the most attractive part of Aura. The plastic veneer lumps on the top and runs along the inside of the speaker to form a very eye-catching pipe. Located in the center of the loudspeaker is a turbo-like look that surrounds a circular steel plate with glowing edges. This light border will signal volume or turn when the loudspeaker is in standby mode.
Right below the plastic dome is the place where the touch control button is placed. You can swipe your finger between the volume keys to increase or decrease the volume. The sidebar is the port selection button, power button and Wifi.
With the exception of the ultra-sensitive volume slider, the Aura’s touch buttons offer a slightly wiggle-free feel when you are not receiving any feedback from the speakers. Even the connection type button, which is predefined for each color for each connection type, also provides a rather funny user experience. You will have to hold the button for about two seconds, and remove the finger to see if it is in the color of the connection, if you do not know, you can see the manual.
While not battery-powered, the Aura Plus is still wireless. The manufacturer was very generous when it provided dozens of connectors for this speaker.
On the back of the speaker is a 3.5mm AUX port and optical input port, the two sides are the power port and USB port to up the firmware. You can connect Aura to many devices from your phone, laptop, and TV with these two physical connectors. In addition, Aura also has a 3.5mm port for headphones.
With wireless connectivity, Aura offers Bluetooth connectivity with Harman Kardon Remote or Wifi via DLNA and Airplay.
Bluetooth connectivity is easy and fast. You can also use the Harman Kardon Remote software on your phone to adjust the speaker volume and bass. However, Aura itself does not have a bass tuner, so you can only tune through the software.
With wifi connection, just through a few settings on the software you can use Aura to play music from your local network.

Aura has a slightly less impressive sound than her appearance. Of course, the sound quality of Aura is not in the ordinary or low level or in the price range, but to make me completely impressed never.
Despite the fancy design and small size, Aura is able to perform quite a full sound and internal force. Actually, thanks to the unique design, the new Aura can emit full sound in all directions. Separating the sound layer in Aura’s space is quite good, but still a little messy and sticky between the layers of sound.
Aura’s bass strings are very warm, deep, solid but still a bit lacking in speed and strength. The bass of Aura makes you feel like there is a stream of sound that is hugging body, not a little overwhelmed, let you immerse yourself in the music space.
Medium and high strings are always detailed and sharp, regardless of where you place the aura in any position. However, the trebled strips are slightly thin and slightly overhanged on some of the musical segments, while the mid strings are not advanced enough and thick enough to make the Aura sound of a lack of connection from the low band to the high strings. .
Over the course of several days, I realized one thing, and it was ridiculous that I did not know if it was a weakness or strength of Aura. This speaker seems to make everything music is smoother and easier to listen to, but in recordings that require a bit of angularity and weight in sound quality, Aura makes me somewhat disappointed.
With a strikingly beautiful design, rich connectivity options and good audio quality for all types of music, Aura is a great choice for anyone looking to find a model. Compact speakers, good singing, and capable of capturing every look.
