About the Harman Kardon Esquire

Elegant and practical

The Harman Kardon Esquire makes a smart travel companion for the business traveler – or anyone who wants a portable Bluetooth speaker that looks a little grown up. The system features an attractive leather panel over an aluminum enclosure for a handsome appearance. And the Esquire sounds as good as it looks. Two high-performance drivers provide clear, detailed sound with a passive bass port to reinforce the low frequencies.

The Harman Kardon Esquire makes a smart travel companion for the business traveler – or anyone who wants a portable Bluetooth speaker that looks a little grown up. The system features an attractive leather panel over an aluminum enclosure for a handsome appearance. And the Esquire sounds as good as it looks. Two high-performance drivers provide clear, detailed sound with a passive bass port to reinforce the low frequencies.

Harman Kardon Esquire A simple array of buttons lets you control the Esquire easily.

Quick pairing with NFC

The system uses Bluetooth and has NFC (Near Field Communication) built-in. Just swipe your NFC-compatible smartphone or tablet close to the Esquire to pair and start streaming music right away. You can also pair the Esquire with other Bluetooth-enabled devices, such as a portable game console or laptop computer.

Versatile speakerphone

Further evidence that the Esquire was made for the business traveler: inside are two noise-canceling microphones. When the system's upright, a single microphone is activated when a call comes in on your paired smartphone. When the Esquire's laid flat on a table, both microphones are activated, making it an effective speakerphone hub — ideal for meetings.

Built to travel

The built-in rechargeable battery provides up to 8 hours of continuous operation. The USB wall adapter has three USB ports, so you can recharge your Esquire plus two additional portable devices from a single wall socket — a welcome feature in a hotel room! The system comes with a durable carry pouch which holds the Esquire, its charging cable and wall adapter.
