I’ve said it before, and again I repeat – the huge growth in Bluetooth speakers has not only created a whole new category, but like the case and accessory market for smartphones, it’s now a huge area for innovation in design and features – harman/kardon’s Esquire ticks so many boxes.

I first saw this speaker in an Instagram photo – it just had that look about it. And while there are some very nice looking speakers out there, this is unique and up close its total quality.

The difference between a low-cost car and a luxury European car is often in the detail – the stitching or materials used in the interior can really give a sense of great value, and that’s what harman/kardon have done with the Esquire.

As if inspired by the iPhone there is a subtle chiseled edge around the side, then add to that the colours in the design and the leather-like back this is simply beautiful.

But you don’t pay $349 for looks.  The sound from this thing is amazing. It’s a quality that surpasses many of the sub-$200 bluetooth speakers you might have heard, the range is exceptional and gives you a sense of satisfaction with your purchase.

Add to that the 10 hour battery life, the full capability for hand’s free speakerphone calls with noise cancellation.

Tap and go NFC pairing for your bluetooth device makes setup a breeze.

Oh, and here’s a fun addition – the wall charger has three USB slots, one for the Esquire, one for your phone and one for your tablet, all charging simultaneously.

You won’t look back – harman/kardon Esquire is glorious.

    so this gadjet should solve my bluetooth phone call issues in the Prado? It looks small enough to carry in my handbag and I’ll have a go at listening to music without headphones.
