Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible Sound for the Size! I bought my 5 on eBay at auction for $73 however it was the best sound investment I've ever bought. The bass is amazing, crystal clear mids and highs with outstanding surround sound. I friend has the 4 which is another great product however it's not as portable as this one. The alluminum handle and flat bottom sets the 5 apart from the 4! All around best portable speaker I've ever bought!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blown away by this Full disclosure I got this speaker for $200 from Sprint and it came with a plane ticket but I’m blown away by the quality of this speaker. I haven’t had the chance to truly break it in yet but the volume, clarity, and feel are fantastic. I haven’t seen any information about it’s weather resistance which concerns me and for almost $500 I’m not convinced it’s worth that much. If you’ve got the money or find it on sale you’d be a fool not to grab it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, loud and easy to take on the road. I accidentally purchased this, I slightly regret it because of the price but it works really well. It’s really loud and connects really easily on your phone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent sound Bought 2 of the hk onyx 5 at sprint for $200 each or $215 with tax which was a good deal. so i can pair them as a stereo speakers. Heres what i have observed Amazing sound with good base and clear highs and lows. Easy BT pairing but doesnt really sepearate a left and right speaker. Loudness of both speakers is not enough to justify buying 2 speaker. When the speakers shuts off you have to manually pair them again evertime they shutoff which is a hussle.

Why wont my Onyx Studio 5 Connect to The HK Connect, HK Remote, or HK Controller App?????

Asked by: jacks12321323
Unfortunately, the Onyx Studio 5 is not compatible with our HK applications. It features the Dual Wireless technology which allows you to connect to a second Onyx Studio 5. Due to its limitations, it does not connect to any of our apps.

Is it possible to connect a MacBook Pro to it via Bluetooth? I just bought it and my phone connected instantly without any problems, but I can't seem to get my MacBook to work as well. It says it's connected, but no sound comes out.

Asked by: Will D
Hi, Thank you for your question. Your MacBook needs to have the latest A2DP drivers for your Bluetooth profile. Check with Apple to ensure you have the latest ones.

can you answer phone on onyx 5 do not see capability.

Asked by: ab357
Seems that you can "not" answer phone calls with Onyx 5. It only connects as a media player. I also don't believe that there is a microphone for this unit.

Does the speaker need to be charged before using? Is there a way to know battery level?

Asked by: Sunnydaydreams
The HK Onyx Studio 5 comes with a factory charge when brand new, but it varies. With this, there is really no direct time-frame that we can provide for an initial charge. Unlike older devices that needs a certain amount of time plugged in initially, batteries now are better and does not require this. To keep the battery healthy, it is not advisable to drain the battery before charging it, small, frequent charges are better than charging it 0-100% at a time. The speaker has an indicator light by the middle of the speaker that would start blinking red once the battery runs low.
