Aura is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 96.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound in such a small package I bought this a few weeeks ago. I’m so impressed with the sound that it delivers. Great highs and plenty of bass. Fills up my entire living room. I only regret that I only bought one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, nice package, good flexibility I bought this for my son who lives at home and commutes to college. This fills most reasonable-sized rooms.The sound is impressive and compares extremely well with a Bose Wave radio (the comparison was done using the auxiliary input on the Bose). The Bluetooth connection posed no problems for any of us trying it out with our phones and computers (Android & iPhone, Windows & Mac). The WiFi connection also worked fine so far on the iPhones and Mac. Haven't yet tried that yet with either Android or Windows. (The Bluetooth worked too well, I guess.) My only regret is that I didn't get a second one for the kitchen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Sound and Bass Is it possible to like the Aura to another HK Bluetooth speaker in a separate room via Bluetooth or WIFI.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from the wow factor Bought mine from a second hand shop. it was an unwanted gift and im not kidding but it is as good as my bose wave and im fussy about my sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cool speaker for any room Cool design. Very good sound. The bass can be adjusted via HK Remote app. Blue tooth pairing and wifi connection are easy to set up. Works well with my Amazon Eco Dot.

Hi, I now have 2 Auras & neither of them seem to let me change 'source' from bluetooth? Both speakers beep but should the button light up a different colour please? I'm trying to use the aux. Thanks

Asked by: Jules54
Hi Jules, Yes, when the source button color is Blue, it means it is still receiving an active Bluetooth signal from somehwere. Try un-pairing your mobile device from Bluetooth ( or just turn Bluetooth off on the mobile devices to test ) and play audio through AUX. The source led should not light up at all then. When playing on WiFi, the source led is Green. When on Bluetooth, it's blue, and when playing through Optical cable, it should be white. When on AUX, no led should be on on the source button. If this doesn't help, please contact our customer support for assistance.

can you pair more speakers with the aura?

Asked by: kyle g
I pair 3 Auras and a main Harman kardon stereo amp through airplay. The only way to have them play is by using Itunes/apple music. It is an apple only feature.

1. How to see a list of paired devices on this device and remove them. One of my neighbor has connected to it while it was in pairing mode and keeps waking us all up by playing noisy songs. Even when i am using he/she just connects to it & disturbs us.

Asked by: Gajendra D Ambi
Unfortunately, there is no way for us to see the list of paired devices and remove one of them. What we can do instead is to reset the unit to remove all that has been paired to it. To do this, While in operational mode, press and hold the Source and Power buttons for about 6-7 seconds. You will need to repair all the devices manually to the speaker again after this.
