    I'm strictly basing this review on sound. Why 3 stars? It sounds great at low volume but once you start going up it shows it's flaws. It really lacks in the midrange and sounds boxy. The highs are hissy and not detailed, the lows are good up to half the volume. The design is beautiful and it's very easy to carry around. It does fill a room somewhat but again it's not quality sound. Is it better than the bose soundlink mini? Yes for the price. The Bose isn't as loud/beautiful but sound seems more balanced on the bose. For the price it's gonna be hard to beat. Features are nice.

    I bought 2 of these speakers with the intent of using them in different rooms of the house and on the go as portable sound for outdoor activities/practices. I cannot connect to each separately because they both use the same name for Bluetooth connectivity and are close enough to one another in the house that when I connect it usually picks the one downstairs instead of the one next to me in the kitchen. The sound is great at lower to mid-level volumes. When you get to higher volume levels there is some distortion from speaker vibration which will make them hard to use with outdoor activities/ practices as I intended.

    This speaker provided amazing sound that I really enjoyed. However, the design really limits the use of the speaker. The point of a wireless speak in my opinion is to be portable. This speaker (due to design) is just best left on a shelf somewhere will it would be permanently stationary. Easy to tip over and takes up too much space to be portable. I imagine the design is why the price keeps dropping on this product. But if you are just going to leave it on a desk or bookshelf, you will be pleased with the sound this product provides.

    First of all, I bought this for and use for my new TV. The unit needs to be in directly line with tv to connect consistently. If slightly off, you will get a break in the sound. The unit definitely needs a remote. Trying to locate the black up and down volume buttons at night is not that easy since they are flush with the unit. I will probably look for a better suited unit and give this one to my daughter to use while in the shower listening to music.

    It is a good speaker, a little bulky to carry around, but great sound, only thing is that the one I got, after some time failed to charge, I left it charging overnight, and by the morning, the charging light were still blinking, so I took it to the store to get a new one, but the told me that it was discontinued, too bad, now I'm hopping to see if they come out with the mini 2…

    The sound quality of this speaker is amazing, but unfortunately it didn't last. I had to trade the speaker in twice for a replacement due to it randomly going out on me. It didn't get wet ir dropped. I'm not sure why it just suddenly stopped working. It's an excellent speaker if it will stay working.

    Harmon has an excellent reputation so I gave it a try but it's JBL products are just as good with water proof features and better battery life. So unless this product sounded better and it doesn't why choose this. I returned product since it was nothing special.

    They work but the sound quality isn't as good as I had hoped. But for the price they serve the purpose for a speaker. I bought because I thought the Macmini didn't have any sound outside the unit, but it does

    Pretty annoying that it will only pair to one phone at a time. In order to get it to pair to my wife's phone I have delete the Bluetooth connection to my phone hen then reunification the pairing.

    It appears my sound card does not have an adjustment to increase bass. I cannot adjust the bass on the speaker either because it too does not have an adjustment button.

    I expected better sound from this little speaker. Probably because I have it's bigger brother. Harmon makes great products. This speaker needs more base

    The Onxy is an ok system. I was expecting with such a high price tag originally it would have been a loud better speaker. It is decent for $50 though.

    Saw many good reviews but didnt live up to expectations. Traded in for Sony much better sound & bass for about the same money in my opinion.

    Looks good and great battery life. Excellent for pop and classical music but disappointing for bass heavy and distorts at high volumes

    The speaker is very good in a bedroom or smaller room. The battery life was much better than expected.
