Picture the scene. The lights are low. The wine is flowing. You grab your phone, select a jazzy romance playlist, and…play it from your phone’s tiny speakers? No way. You need a Bluetooth speaker that makes a statement without being obtrusive, something that fits your modern aesthetic.
Check out the Harman Kardon Aura Studio 3 Wireless Speaker. Standing about a foot high, this unique speaker feels at home amongst mid-century modern, eclectic, and minimalist rooms alike. The smoked translucent dome screams “taste” while the clean lines whisper “restraint.” The size is just right – large enough to be a focal point in your room if you choose, but unobtrusive enough to disappear into a corner during parties. At a weight of just under eight pounds, it’s easy to move around when needed.
A powerful subwoofer and crisp mid-range tones combine with 360° sound to fill any room with deep, clear sound. This speaker is so powerful that it isn’t wireless or re-chargeable—it has to remain plugged into a wall outlet to function. This energy need boxes in your design choices somewhat, but we think the Aura Studio 3’s power is worth the limitation.
Our favorite feature is the ambient lighting, which streams from the speaker in gentle waves as music plays, further setting the tone for your evening.
The Aura Studio 3 connects to your chosen music streamer with Bluetooth, WiFi, Optical, or 3.5 mm Aux cables. The product ships with a power cable, a quick start guide, a safety sheet, and a warranty card. At $299.95, this speaker isn’t cheap. We think that’s okay—the Aura Studio 3 isn’t just about playing high-quality sound in your living room or bedroom—it’s about making a statement!
