Hmm, I thought this was a good deal. Maybe I should cancel my order as well 😬

It is a good deal, but the Onyx Studio 5 has been this price a few different times recently. At this $110 price, I can't think of ANY portable Bluetooth speaker that can touch it. This is a really great quality speaker.Applause

Harman Kardon Studio Onyx series has been my favorite "semi-portable" speaker for years - beating out Bose. The main reason is their price, and their speaker driver design (2 woofers - with passive radiator and 2 tweeters) - which remain virtually unchanged in their Generations 1-4.

The enhanced features like BT stereo & party pairing in the Onyx 3 and Onyx 4 only made it even better. So now I own one of each generation (1-4)!

However, I was disappointed with the design of the Onyx 5 and 6. For some reason, Harman Kardon decided to CUT OFF HALF the speakers. The Onyx 5 and 6 only has ONE woofer (with a passive driver) and ONE tweeter. On top of that, they REMOVED stereo pairing, and only allows you to have party pairing. AND, party pairing is only allowed on another Onyx 5. Not 4 or 3!.

For that reason, I'm avoiding this one. Even some YouTube reviews are saying to get the Onyx 4 for sound quality instead of this model.

There was a $90 refurb deal that just ended few days ago, also posted here.

$110 is a fairly common price for new units because the "older" model is actually better sounding than this model.

To my ears v5 sounds better than v4 but not having stereo as an option is not cool.
