Those features include Bluetooth stereo for wireless streaming, a brushed aluminium finish along the edges, leather backing, two microphones for using the speaker as a conference gadget, and even a small battery to charge your smartphone from the speaker.
“The Harman/Kardon Esquire Mini is a bold, state-of-the-art audio solution, perfect for the on-the-go professional whether at home or in the boardroom,” said Sohan Karunaratne, Head of Marketing for Harman’s Australian distributor, Convoy International.
“No attention-to-detail has been spared – from the line-up of premium materials and craftsmanship, to the chic urban styling of its uni-body design.”
We’re told the battery can survive up to eight hours of playback, and there’s even a stand built in, as well as a leather strap for keeping the speaker on your wrist, two features missing from the original Esquire.
The price is also a little different, as this is a smaller unit, with the Harman/Kardon Esquire Mini coming in at $229.99.
Availability is right now, though, so if you’re looking for a premium Bluetooth speaker, there’s a good chance this might come up in your search.
