Design

1.volume

15264.49cm³

11528.66cm³

Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.
A speaker driver is an individual transducer that converts electrical energy to sound waves. More drivers may result in better sound quality.
3.control panel placed on a device
Harman Kardon Aura Studio 3
Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 4
There is a control panel on the device body, so you can easily access the volume control or remote without having to interact with a cable or another device it's connected to.
4.weather-sealed (splashproof)
Harman Kardon Aura Studio 3
Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 4
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device. Bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.
6.has a neodymium magnet
Harman Kardon Aura Studio 3
Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 4
Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.
7.has a detachable cable
Harman Kardon Aura Studio 3
Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 4
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
Bigger subwoofers are capable of producing deeper bass sounds.
9.weight

3.6kg

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.

Harman Kardon Aura Studio 3
Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 4
A passive radiator is a type of driver (speaker) that doesn't have a voice coil and a magnet. The sound vibrations produced by a passive radiator depend on its mass and the size of its enclosure. It is usually used in combination with a woofer to produce deep bass tones.
5.highest frequency

20000Hz

20000Hz

The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
