Harman Kardon Go + Play review

 

A powerful, portable wireless speaker that's an admirable improvement over the original

Open and warm presentation ; Loads of bass ; Detailed and dynamic

May not suit those who crave delicacy and agility

The Harman Kardon Go + Play’s tenderness and controlled aggression make it the yardstick for £250 portable speakers

Harman-Kardon Go+Play Wireless review

 

A great Bluetooth speaker with big bass and an easy-to-live-with sound

Detailed, agile treble and midrange ; Huge power ; Lovely design ; Charges via USB

Bass overwhelms a little ; Will not play via USB connection

If it’s big bass and an easy-to-live-with sound you’re after, this is a great Bluetooth speaker. But if you crave finesse, you can do better

Harman-Kardon Go + Play review

 

If you want a stylish, well made portable iPod dock with bags of bass, Harman Kardon's Go + Play will fit the bill

Attractive looks ; fine build and finish ; spacious, dynamic and full-blooded sound

Low frequencies sound at odds with the rest of the music ; needs eight batteries to be portable

A superior portable solution, with bass that can be heard across a Glastonbury field

Harman Kardon Go+Play Wireless review

 

Harman Kardon Go+Play Wireless: is good sound good enough?

Nice and portable ; Decent looks ; Better sound

No rechargeable battery ; No AirPlay ; Takes up room

Harman Kardon Go + Play review: Post-retro design, powerful audio

 

Can a wireless speaker already be retro? Weirdly enough, that's what the Harman Kardon Go + Play feels like. There's something refreshing about how out-of-step it is. Those with picky ears can poke holes in the Harman Kardon Go + Play, but it is one of...

Great portability for a large speaker, big and bold sound, powerful low-end, distinctive look, very portable for a large speaker

Unsophisticated bass, no Wi-Fi or multi-room features

Those with picky ears can poke holes in the Harman Kardon Go + Play, but it is one of the few new, sub-£250 wireless speakers to offer both the clout of a main lounge speaker and real portability.

Plug in an iPod, hoist it on your shoulder and strut. Yes, this is the ghetto-blaster, revisited…

Harman Kardon Go + Play review: The music is in charge

 

Hard-hitting sound, but a lack of features weaken the Go + Play's charm

Sound quality is excellent ; Good looks ; Great build quality

Bluetooth only ; No Airplay, Spotify Connect or Google Cast ; Quite bulky for a "portable" speaker

It’s also heavy, a bit bulky and a touch expensive. Whether its exceptional sound quality is enough to compensate for these shortcomings is arguable – I’d certainly want a bit more for my money – but it does sound wonderful, and for that I’d happily...

Harman Kardon Go+Play Wireless review: easy Bluetooth speaker setup with great audio

 

Harman Kardon's Go+Play Wireless speaker system is a big, stylish speaker with great audio. It connects via Bluetooth but lacks AirPlay.

The Harman Kardon Go+Play is a great speaker system. It offers high quality audio, easy wireless connectivity, and great volume and bass. The lack of a rechargeable battery or AirPlay sits against it (although we'd take Bluetooth over AirPlay these...

Harman Kardon Go + Play

 

This is the only product I have so far received from my visit to CEDIA in June this year. Of course some promises always fail to materialise but this year is worse than normal. However this product took my eye as I walked past their stand.

I am no style guru but it certainly looks stylish to me and most people who have seen it have commented on it. 44cm across a maximum of 18cm wide and 25cm tall to the top of the large chromed handle that sweeps in a semi circle from one side to the...

Harmon Kardon Go + Play Review

 

Harman Kardon has a long-standing relationship with Apple and the Harmon Kardon Go + Play iPod speaker system stands to compete with many high-end makers, as it offers great sound, design and features to match. But what's its Achilles heel?

Excellent sound, unique design, loads of features ; high-end product that's lightweight

Pointless remote hard to comprehend, remote useless as you can't see what's on the iPod, high-end price

This device competes at the highest level, and is well worth the relatively high price. It's a top-class solution from audio experts, who've combined eye-catching design with top-notch sound technology to create a system that delivers excellent music...
