    Harman Kardon HKESQUIRE2GRY Reviews

    Esquire 2 Wireless Bluetooth Speaker (Gray) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 39.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from not happy first i had the esquire but after a about six months the cable to charch the esquire became a loos fit. so no contact and no charching. Went to store and after a few weeks i got the equire 2 because mine was beyond repare, the esquire 1 was sold out. now i got a newer model, and behold to my surprice there was no etui for the speaker nor there was a charcher, (cost more as nr 1 but you get less) now iam about six months furter on and the esquire has great difficulties to get charched. even playing the thing connected to a charcher it wil drain the battery and stops working, quite an expensive joke this thing is.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE IT!!! This speaker is perfect! I love the look of it, it sounds amazing and I use it for conference calls and it is the best speaker- headset I have used for calls. I've been told that I sound very clear using the speaker phone.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing speaker I bought this at the beginning of the month, and I absolutely love it! Very clear and crisp sound

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elegant I bought this because of its looks. It looks very elegant, looks excellent on my desk. I was surprised (pleasantly) that the sound quality was crystal clear and the bass was deep even if it had no baffles. Cons: no carrying case No charger, only cable included. Excellent purchase.

    How do I know that the speaker is charging?

    Asked by: Bentoo
    The Esquire 2 has 5 indicator lights on the left side that would indicate show all 5 lights steady at 100% and 1 blinking light at less than 20%. It's similar to how you would interpret a battery level indicator. 1 blinking light - <20%, >0% 1 steady light - around 20% 1 steady light + 1 blinking light <40%, >20% 2 steady lights - around 40% 2 steady lights + 1 blinking light <60%, >40% 3 steady lights - around 60% 3 steady lights + 1 blinking light <80%, >60% 4 steady lights - around 80% 4 steady lights + 1 blinking light <100%, >80% 5 steady lights - around 100%

    It took about 3 months for my battery to die. It currently works for 30-35 mins after being fully charged. Is there any information of how can I change it by myself, because I think there are no any official dealers of Harman/Kardon in Kazakhstan?

    Asked by: Dewken
    You mentioned you are in Kazakhstan. Please contact the store where you purchased the Esquire 2 and they should be able to help, or at least guide you to the people who can for your warranty options.

    I just purchased my Esquire 2 after wanting it for a long time. I am very happy with it so far, build quality, finish and sound. However how do I tell the speaker to switch between two different successfully connected devices with out repairing them?

    Asked by: ACTIT
    OK I see. The Esquire 2 can connect to two devices simultaneously and then you just need to start an audio source for either device and the Esquire 2 will automatically switch between them. My main issues is on turning on/off the Esquire 2 and reconnecting it as I am using a PC for Skype and iPhone for calls. It would be great to get firmware to allowing pushing the BT button to switch between connected devices and long hold of the BT button to sync devices. My work around for Windows 10 was to follow this: http://blog.jongallant.com/2012/12/windows-8-bluetooth-connect/. This works but it is not clean/simple/elegant. The firmware update I suggested would take care of this and maybe you could even increase the number of connected devices to 4 and reuse the battery LEDs to indicate which device is currently connected 1-4 etc.

    Should I charge it before using the speaker with the minimum power it came with? Or can I begin using it right out of the box using up that limited charge it arrived with?

    Asked by: Kaya

    Can I connect a phone to two or three esquire2 at the same time?

    Asked by: fernando javier
    You may not connect one phone to 2 or more ESQUIRE 2's since it does not have a stereo or party mode. You may however pair up to 2 phones or tablets to the speaker and take turns playing music.
