Esquire from harman/kardon

In a connected, fast-paced world, savvy consumers are constantly seeking simple, elegant and reliable products that just make life easier.

The Esquire is the latest device from the trusted harman/kardon stable, fusing high-fidelity sound with state-of-the-art teleconferencing, all in one small packet.

With a focus on sound quality as would be expected from the HARMAN labs, the Esquire enables portable sound from smartphones and tablets for music playback, while at the same time acting as a portable speaker for those all important office calls.

“Today’s digital lifestyle means people carry their lives with them, but sound quality and functionality are often compromised,” Sohan Karunaratne, Head of Marketing for Australian distributor, Convoy International, told StereoNET.

“Now, a portable device no longer means poor sound quality. The new harman/kardon Esquire delivers a refined, crystal clear audio experience wherever consumers want to enjoy it; room to room, on the go, and everywhere in between,” he said.

With a reliable 10-hour rechargeable battery, the Esquire also acts as a portable power-bank, with three built-in USB ports that can charge speakers, a phone and a tablet at the same time, as an example.

Download the harman/kardon remote app for your smartphone, and stream music collections from anywhere on a home or office network to a harman/kardon speaker in any room.
