Harman Kardon SoundSticks III speaker

Harman Kardon has updated its popular SoundSticks speakers to match the styling of the modern Mac. The SoundSticks III will go onsale worldwide this month for €199. 


Although not a huge change from the SoundSticks speakers that are on display at the Museum of Modern Art [MOMA] in New York, the award-winning speaker design now has a satellite switch and a braided cable that maker Harmon Kardon says improved the audio fidelity.

The original Harman Kardon SoundSticks II were launched in 2001, with a second version in 2004 and remain a popular design. The SoundSticks III, which were unveiled at the IFA 2010 consumer electronics show in Berlin this month, feature a 15cm downward firing subwoofer that outputs 20 Watts of sound. This, combined with eight transducers, results in outstanding bass performance and realistic, room-filling sound, say Harman Kardon.
