The more I listen to and ponder the other-worldly design of the Harman Kardon Aura wireless home speaker system, the more I start to think it was inspired by some form of alien technology. The Aura is so capable and advanced that it would prove more than sufficient as the only sound system in an apartment or condo, while looking unbelievable as well.
Whether you’re channeling music to your Aura via an app on your smartphone, tablet, or desktop with Airplay, wi-fi, bluetooth, optical input, or the auxiliary input jack, it’s very easy to adjust the volume to keep your neighbors unaware of this advanced technology. If you want to just hear music in one room, the Aura can do that. If you are throwing a housewarming party the Aura will have you covered as well. And sound quality from the Aura is truly at the top of its class with full, rich bass and amazing definition. I heard things in my favorite songs that I’ve never heard before with this exemplary Harman Kardon product.
At the bottom the design is either white or black mesh covered to keep its advanced mid and high range drivers, as well as its sizable amplifier hidden. Personally, this is one piece of audio equipment that no one will ever talk me into loaning out for a house party. Editor: No really, James flat out refuses to send me it for a comparison review.. It’s easy to carry but you would be wise to use two hands, and due to the design don’t take it to the beach or camping as that could damage what is undoubtedly a piece of audio artwork.
There is an app that is easy to figure out on iPhone and Android devices where you can control the bass levels, volume and whether you are connected via Bluetooth or through the much clearer and flawlessly reliable Wi-Fi connection. It’s all relatively simple to set up and all of your friends (especially those with paws) will be entranced by the otherworldly glow that the Harman Kardon Aura emits around its center mounted sound tube that rises out of the top of its glass dome. Did we mention we think aliens designed it? Well no matter what planet those aliens were from, I’m pretty sure they were from a nice planet where thinking we might find odd is actually evidence of their intelligence. You know, kind of like with Ke$ha. You know she’s an alien.
