Uncompromising Harman Kardon sound and teleconferencing in a sophisticated, portable footprint
STAMFORD, Conn. – HARMAN International Industries, Incorporated, marries hi-fidelity sound with state-of-the-art teleconferencing in the Harman Kardon Esquire, a new compact, all-in-one sound system.

Custom-tuned microphones with noise-cancellation technology ensure crystal-clear conference calls from your Bluetooth-enabled smartphone. An adapter with three built-in USB ports that can charge your speaker, phone and tablet at the same time and Harman Kardon Esquire 10-hour rechargeable battery will never leave you in the lurch.
