Does this app support the studio 5?
By pugsicle3ruffles(my username)
This app is so utterly and and completely pointless that it’s depressing.I beg you do not buy this app.
Just wow ... lazy people made this 1/5
Works for my SB 26 soundbar 4/5
My SB 26 soundbar shows up after connecting via Bluetooth. Works just like the physical remote. Thanks Harman Kardon!
Harman Kardon speaker: sound quality is among the best! This app: literally destroys everything! Takes ages to setup. ‘IF’ you’re lucky to succeed, connection between your phone (or any other device) and the speakers drops randomly. Speakers stop casting randomly, app does not recognize them anymore... anyway, got 6 omni’s, €2000+ investment... making a fool out of myself when streaming during house party’s with friends.
It used to work on my soundbar. It doesn’t even show up anymore. I can’t even change the sources. Useless.
Terrible-screen doesn’t fit 1/5
By HD Sad
The WiFi connect screen is not big enough to access the password and set it up. Come on “guys” how about trying to get it right.
No bass control. 1/5
This app is anemic. There’s no way to control bass levels and other tones just volume. Will be deleting this ASAP.
Complete Trash 1/5
This app is complete trash. I let the lying salesman at sprint sell me two of these speakers claiming that they could be linked together but the only way to do that is to use this app that does not work at all. It crashes without playing music. I really expected better.
It doesn’t really seem to do anything 1/5
I occasionally open the app and look to see if there are updates that make it worth opening. Nope. I can’t use the app to switch inputs on the receiver. I can’t use it to turn it on or off. I can’t turn up or down the volume in a way that’s notably better than what I can do with the app that’s supplying the sound, like Pandora or Stitcher. Why don’t they make an app that’s at least as useful as the supplied remote?
App does not work!!!!!!!! 1/5
App was not updated in over a year. It does not work. It looks like since Samsung purchased HK in 2017 everything is going down. Probably they just want to eliminate the HK name from the market. What a shame!
Must be kidding 1/5
Useless. Tech savvy company like HK? Simply wanted volume control for my Onyx. Won’t consider HK again in future , as I replace electronics other brands offer superior integration
App is terrible 1/5
By Fed Up HK User
I will never buy another HK product solely because of the app. Never worked properly. When it did it was very clunky and inconsistent. In this day and age, to not have clean and easy app support shows how seriously you take your product eco system. It's not hard anymore but if you can't invest in app support for a luxury item, then I won't invest my dollars. Simple.
Very slow and useless app! 1/5
It looks like this app was made by scholars. Configuring Omni bar 5.1 with it is a pain.
Not only it does not see speakers but you cant play music directly from your iphone using this app. It only offers you spotify or other radios! Also this app was not updated for more than a year!
Harman this app is big disappointment!
Horrible app great Receiver 1/5
I never wrote a review for an app before, but had to say something about this experience. The receiver works amazing with all its strength. But the app doesn’t help the device. Zero connectivity with WiFi or Bluetooth( I’m tech savvy and anyone who buy this is fairly so). I just want the manufacture to invest a little into the app and make connectivity easy. Not asking for much! But what is made for.
Absolute trash, disgraceful 1/5
By MS was better
This is garbage. Literally just streams audio to your receiver. No other function. GARBAGE
Does it work? Yes... but 3/5
Does this see my Onyx 2? Yes
Does it allow me to control my volume? Yes
Can I control my music? Yes
Any equalizer control? No
Can I see my battery level? No
I would expect this app to do those 5 things. Unfortunately all can be done within the Music app in iOS. The app is utterly useless. Lots of potential though. Gonna keep and see what happens for now.
Lackluster App, Love the Speaker 3/5
The app could really use some improvement in that the layout is wonky, especially when navigating on an iPhone XS Max. As far as functionality, I have not had any functionality issues, like volume control and other features.
This app is atrocious compared to my Yamaha app.
Love the Speaker, Hate the App 1/5
I tried to set up this up with my Onyx Studio 4 via Bluetooth, as this speaker is not WiFi compatible. Even though it is clearly showing that the speaker is connected in the “settings” menu, I keep getting a message telling me to “go to the IOS Bluetooth menu in Settings to select your speaker.” I’ve done that, but still keep getting that message. I was really looking forward to using this app too. Oh, well...
False Advertising 1/5
This app is a piece of crap that doesn’t do half of things it says it does. All I wanted was a remote to control the volume on my Onyx Studio 2. So far, it’s only been able to connect to my speaker via Bluetooth one time. Couldn’t control the volume unless I used the crusty embedded media player, and played songs from my phone. Useless when I am trying to use my record player. And for god’s sake, would it really kill you guys if you put an equalizer in it? This is 2019. A digital equalizer is not beyond our technological abilities.
Just Terrible 1/5
Trash the whole app
Rather competitively eat lit coals than redownload... 1/5
In total disbelief that this app was allowed to be released. I simply want to control the volume of my Onyx. You would think that if I’m already connected to the speaker via BT then the Hk remote app would somehow be able to see it, but no. The only function the app has is a dialogue box telling me to connect to Bluetooth...Well, obviously ...What in the hell does this app actually do????? 10 year IT professional here.
No Purpose 1/5
Would be very curious to see if anyone could identify a single functional feature on this app that actually enhances one’s enjoyment of ANY HK product.
Does nothing 1/5
By Audio Reader
No control of AVR, only for playing iTunes purchases.
Constant issues 1/5
I am connected to Ethernet yet it always says connection problem connecting to network.
Battery Drainer 1/5
Beware: Apple ought to force HK to fix their app. It uses so much energy that iOS > Settings > Battery shows as using 100% battery!!!
Doesn’t work with iOS 12 and iPhone 10xs 1/5
By Iron Beagle
Says to go and connect the speaker to Bluetooth. Did that. Continues to tell me to go and connect to Bluetooth. In serious need of an update.
Update the App 2/5
Update the app screen layout I use the this app for couple of years and it still the same screen resolution and layout it looks outdated Please updated design and make it fit to the iPhone screen size
bad app!! 1/5
update for iphone x
add more setting and eq
Where’s the remote control 1/5
This was always my remote control so I need it back!
Can’t update software from the app from IPhone 1/5
HK aura will not update software from the application and not working with Mac computer. Useless app and has been like this for years. Sad they don’t spend time updating their software and iPhone application on a regular basis with as much money as they charge for their products and the fact they are a multi billion dollar business. Very poor customer experience
Can you say iTunes Seriously?
The worst and deceptive 1/5
Owners manual for hk3770 (not cheap) implies all remote operations could be performed from app. It does NOTHING other than stream via blue which is what iTunes already can do and it has access to entire library. This is totally bogus. Like the other reviewer said - save your time and don’t waste it on this.
What’s not to like. 5/5
Works great with my 1610s. Easy 5 star for me
Where is the EQ? 1/5
I only see volume.
Doesnt Work 1/5
By Pavi Pooh
Im connected to my HK onyx Studio 2 but app keeps prompting to connect to it. Dont know what else to do. I have an iphone 7 so the option to connect using a usb is obsolete. I also tried connecting vis wps. Pressing the bluetooth button on speaker and pressing wps button on my att modem
Works great with my SB35
Lousy touch recognition
No treble/ bass adjustment
Not intuitive interface
Once you enable DLNA function then you can’t access apple music local songs. You have to disable DLNA first
They have not updated this app in over a year. Everything in my apt is wireless and everything controlled on my phone, by far the worst experience. Thank God the speakers are amazing!!!
Doesn’t actually control receiver 1/5
Harmon Kardon claims the app controls every feature of my receiver. Actually it controls one: the volume. Pathetic.
Disappointing lack of basic innovation 1/5
Gee... no update Yo functionality or U/D in over a year now?? Boy, you guys are an amazing example of innovation and keeping with the times!!
God I miss my Yamaha receiver.
Onyx studio 3 can’t connect 1/5
I have iOS 11 iPhone SE, application can’t connect with Bluetooth, but sound from phone to OnyxStudio work good:( Sad
Don’t bother 1/5
Doesn’t do anything your built-in music player does better.
Please update for iPhone X 3/5
Besides looking really dated, works pretty well.
Stop working 3/5
SB35 was showing when I first installed it, once I disconnected and tried to reconnect it won't show up again
Still Great with AVR 1700 & iOS 11 4/5
Reproduces the functions of the IR remote on my trusty AVR 1700. There’s no feedback, just like the IR remote. Still seems fine on my iPhone 7 with iOS 11 although the 1700 isn’t available randomly like always.
Won’t Setup Your Speaker with AirPlay 1/5
By Devin Labadini
I’m unable to setup my Aura speaker with a WiFi connection after a number of attempts (usb and ad-hoc) including trying this app. The application simply doesn’t find any WiFi connections and therefore it’s impossible for it to send the WiFi confection credential to the speaker.
