AURA STUDIO 2 is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great unit Fantastic sound, through my apple device (Bluetooth) but as you might expect, problematic with windows, (Bluetooth) device does not connect, expects it to be plugged in! As such I have not been able to make equaliser adjustments, but it's early day's, this'll be easily sorted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing A quality speaker with crystal clear sound, thundering bass, and can easily fill your home with music. Perfect for any audiophiles, highly recommend!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great sound but also the perfect fly-trap This speaker sound great and looks amazing. One of the best looking speakers I have seen. The fact that it turns off by itself is a little annoying but I can live with it. There are however some downsides to the stunning design. Its a perfect fly-trap. House flies are attracted to the light inside and walk down the little tunnel. They are then unable to get out and leave little marks (fly p00p?) all inside the dome. It took me 15min of shaking it with the Dyson facing down the tunnel to get the little guys out. For all of this hassle I think it should come with a 'Dinesh warranty' where Mr Paliwal turns up in person to clean it for you. At least update the firmware to disable the auto-off for us. Do a button combo to enable/disable auto off.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from you have totally no control of the ambient light Aura Studio 2, is an amazing looking speaker and has good sound quality,but the ambient light is a massive let down, it does not dance to the sound of the music so you could be playing rock or classical and the light show will stay the same, the light shows seems to be pre-set, and is so annoying, as every 10 to 15 seconds it goes off then comes back on again, this is so distracting that i cant really enjoy my music, i have to put mine in a cupboard and had to use one of my other speakers, hopefully Harman Kardon, will bring out firmware to up-date this,in the mean time its staying in my cupboard, if i had of know this there is no way i would have bought this Aura Studio 2 .
Date published: 2018-05-05
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor product This is a very poor product, the sound is perfect BUT if left alone for 30 minutes or thereabouts, it does not go into standby mode it SHUTS DOWN and you need to then physically approach the speaker and turn it back on so that it will connect to your device and you can start playing music, when i purchased this i was told i could just come home from work select music on my iPhone and it would play, such a misleading thing, it doe snot do this at all

Purchased the Aura 2 the second i saw it as i fell in love with it but am not happy with the frequent self shutting down of the device, especially when it does not use batteries. I must say that the concept is good but not intelligently planned.

Hi The power saving option is mandatory, and can't be avoided. You can find all the regulations in the (ErP) 2009/125/EC Directive for Energy-Related Products https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Energy-related_products

i just got my Aura Studio 2 , i cant get it to play sounds from my laptop , it always show me its discontented , is it compatible with windows 10 through Bluetooth connections ?

Asked by: Mastodon
Hi, Thank you for your question. First, you need to check your Bluetooth drivers on your PC. Our product requires the A2DP profile to send music via Bluetooth from a PC and you may need to find the right drivers at your PC manufacturer website as we are using standard Bluetooth technology and does not have any drivers stored.

When there will be optical input, automatic waking up and going into the stadby mode, I will buy it immediately. Question: Does waking up and falling asleep work when the 3.5 mm jack is connected?

Asked by: michal22
Hi, Thank you for your question. We do not have any information whether next generation will have an optical connection. You can get an optical connection by buying the AURA plus speaker. After 15 minutes of no activity, the AURA Studio will go out of standby mode and you will need to press the power button to activate it again. Contact us if you need further information on our products.

How far away from the speaker can I be with my iPhone?

Asked by: Buzz
Hi, Thank you for your question. With Bluetooth connection for this speaker, it should work 10 Meters distance away (if there isn't any interference nearby). However, you can even go further depending on your home, interference, and obstacles in-between the speaker and your phone.
