Harman-Kardon-Omni-20-Black-(Table)

Harman Kardon announced their fall line-up over at IFA this year, many of which featured wireless connectivity. They had a ton of new products for the home under the new Harman Kardon Omni series that allows you to stream music to any room in your home using standard Wi-Fi network protocols and Bluetooth. I won’t talk much about those as we mainly focus on personal audio here so we’ll talk more about these other two products, the Harman Kardon Esquire Mini and Soho Wireless.

The Esquire Mini is a compact, Bluetooth speaker with plenty of style and exceptional sound. These speakers are super thin and feature dual drivers, enhanced bass, and premium materials. If sharing your music isn’t your thing, there is also the Soho Wireless headphones that also ooze plenty style without sacrificing performance. The Soho Wireless features both Bluetooth and NFC pairing and also premium materials.
