Harman Kardon has always been known to develop audio products not only with stellar sound in mind but with stunning designs you’d be proud to display in your living room.
From the company that released the iconic SoundSticks and a bevy of other stunning devices, now comes the Harman Kardon Luna. It’s slated to be the next big thing in premium portable audio.
What to Expect with the Harman Kardon Luna
On the outside, the classy, minimalist silhouette of the Harman Kardon Luna is hard to miss. There’s an understated elegance brimming through its curved chassis, something you’d expect of a well-engineered product.
Its top panel is constructed of high-quality anodized aluminum to ensure that it’ll last years of wear and tear. Since the buttons are all placed here, Harman Kardon claims that the user’s hand will be experiencing a treat every time they have to fix the settings, play the music, or turn the speaker off.
It’s a rewarding thing to do, every single time.
Meanwhile, wrapped around the Harman Kardon Luna is a soft-touch fabric that’s only accented by the company logo. Its fabrics are weaved from 100% recycled polyester yarn, while the sustainable theme continues with 85% post-consumer recycled plastics and 50% recycled aluminum in its overall build.
The fabric’s lack of any distinct patterns ensures that it fits seamlessly into any living space, tech setup, or wherever you may think of dropping this in. It just visually blends in like a chameleon, and we think that’s pretty cool.
Don’t think that it’s all show and no go though.
The Harman Kardon Luna shelters the brand’s advanced two-way speaker system. It’s marketed to still be able to deliver the signature Harman sound, achieving clarity and detail beyond what the form factor suggests.
You can even pair two Luna speakers for a stereo arrangement. It’ll keep going and going for an estimated 12-hour battery life. And if you’re thinking that it looks like it can only be used inside the house, then we’d have to agree.
But looks can be deceiving as the Harmon Kardon Luna portable speaker comes with an IP67 dustproof and waterproof rating. That means it can sustain accidental spills, rain, or even sudden submersion in water.
More Releases from Harman Kardon
Other notable Harman Kardon products to be released in 2023 are refreshes of current offerings in the lineup.
The first is the Aura Studio 4, which stems from the SoundSticks-inspired Aura Studio line. While it mostly looks the same, the most noticeable change is the addition of textured material to the inside of the speaker.
It’s definitely a change from the Aura Studio 3, and now it even lights up in various shades.
On the audio side of things, it boasts six speaker drivers, supplemented by a 132mm down-firing bass driver that takes care of the low end. It comes in a design that’s shaped to project sound as evenly as possible.
Meanwhile, the environmentally conscious will be pleased to discover that this fourth iteration is the first time recycled materials have been implemented within this range.
The second product is the Harman Kardon Go + Play 3 speaker. It’s designed and built more conventionally to look like a home Bluetooth speaker that you can just lug around within your home.
Well, the fact that it’s larger, as well as the inclusion of a handle in its design gives you an idea of how it’s used. It’s a bit like carrying a boombox.
This one features three-way stereo drivers and a down-facing bass thumper. It’ll keep going for eight hours. While some may be a bit disappointed by that playback time figure, we’re sure you’ll be able to find a power plug within that timeframe.
If not, then perhaps the other offerings by Harman Kardon are more suited to your needs.
