Great for mellow music.
31 March 2019
This packs a punch the size cannot take. There is so much vibration for the low Hertz, it seems that it comes from something other than the driver. Great, it holds the fort and doesn't tumble over.
If your collection is bass-heavy, you'll get tired real soon; you probably don't wanna buy this one. You'll feel like you're listening to a Sony box where everything is overpowered by the bass. They should have added a bass cut off button. At approximately 80% volume, all you can clearly distinguish is the various low beats (and the hum).
If, on the other hand, you're into mellow music, this is a treat. You wouldn't believe the (artificial) boom comes from this little brick (as also the amount of the overall amplitude).
Coming from Onyx Studio 3 and 4 as well as Soundsticks 3, I can say HK delivers here too. For such music, the reproduction gets as good as the quality of the files you play back can offer (the better, the merrier).
You can safely ignore the tree stars if you don't listen to heavy stuff. This one is real cute.
