Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space taken up by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product fills. Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 7 takes up 12,930.67cm³, it is important to know the space that the speaker takes up just so as to ensure that it will easily fit in the available space next to your other gadgets.
Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 5's volume is 10,578.43cm³ meaning it occupies lesser space than the Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 7 with a difference cm³
We consider a lower weight better for the reason that lighter devices are more comfortable to move with.
A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
The Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 5, at 2,980g weigh less than the Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 7 with a difference g. Commonly a genuine quality system is a little bit heavier than average quality products though If you want to change the position of the soundbar after some time, then you should aim to purchase a lighter soundbar.
The height represents the vertical dimension of a device, Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 7 has a height of 302.5mm.
Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 5, at 284mm is shorter than the Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 7 by -18.5mm
This represents the horizontal dimension of a device, Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 7 has a width of 268mm.
The Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 5, at 291mm is wider than the Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 7 with a difference 23mm
The thickness (or depth) of Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 7 is 159.5mm, to know the thickness of the speaker you divide its volume(space occupied) by the surface area( length by width)
Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 5 has a thickness of 128mm, hence less thicker than the Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 7 by -31.5mm
A subwoofer is a speaker that delivers lower frequencies in the range of 20 -200Hz, the low frequencies are produced by instruments such as pipe organs, bass guitars, even the kick drums, and any explosive sound effects say in a movie. Devices that have a subwoofer inbuilt give a richer bass sound when listening to bass-heavy music like hip hop.
Both the Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 5 and Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 7 have a subwoofer
Bigger subwoofers are capable of producing deeper bass sounds. Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 7 has a 120 mm subwoofer
Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 5 has a 120 mm subwoofer
Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 7 has stereo speakers, what this means is that Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 7's speakers deliver sound from separate channels on both left and right sides, this creates a richer sound and a better listening experience.
The driver unit is basically a mini speaker that produces sound in the device, its size dictates the loudness of the headphone. Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 7 driver unit is 25mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.
Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 5 driver unit is 120mm in diameter, making them have a larger driver unit than that of Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 7 by 95mm , as many tend to believe that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
However, large drivers usually have difficulty reproducing high frequencies so it's true that, larger drivers can generate louder sound, but this does not mean that they produce better sound.
A speaker driver is an individual transducer that converts electrical energy to sound waves. Drivers come in different sizes and modes, but generally, you'll find three types: tweeter driver, which handles the high-frequency treble range (above 2,000 Hz), and midrange driver: which handles the midrange frequencies (200 Hz to 2,000 Hz). Woofer driver: handles the low-frequency bass range (below 200 Hz).
Based on the frequencies they handle more drivers may result in better sound quality, Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 7 has 3 only.
Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 5 has 1 only
A passive radiator is a type of driver in speakers that can get extra power and resonance from a speaker system, usually used in smaller speaker systems. This radiator is called passive because it is not powered by electricity but by air pressure found in speaker cones.
The sound vibrations produced by a passive radiator depend on its mass and the size of its enclosure. It is usually used in combination with a woofer to produce deep, resonant tones that would normally be produced by speakers in large boxes powered by AC.
The Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 5 and Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 7 both have a passive radiator
The signal-to-noise ratio is a measure that compares the meaningful sound a speaker produces to the level of noise produced by internal components of that speaker, the higher the number the less perceived noise. Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 7 has an audio signal level of 80 dB higher than the level of noise.
The Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 5, at 80dB has the same audio signal as the Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 7.
The audio output power of a device is based on the number of speakers and their power in watts Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 5 has 50W, this is the amount of power the speakers can be loaded with "comfortably".
A higher audio output power results in louder, clearer sounds though this is not the sole factor determining the device's loudness. To get a better understanding of how loud any speaker can get, there are other features to factor in such as sensitivity, sound pressure, etc.
Low-frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio device reproduces low audible frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal on the way through. Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 5's lowest frequency is at 50Hz, the lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
High frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio device reproduces high audible frequencies and if it changes to the signal on the way through. Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 5's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, the higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
Your speaker's battery life will reduce over time while in use, the battery life is given by the manufacturer, and with longer battery life, you get to use it for longer and have to charge the device less often. Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 7's battery life is 8 hours
Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 5's battery life is 8 hours. Each time you recharge your device, it gets a little less listening time. The effect is barely noticeable at first. But over a few years, you may find that your speaker, no longer plays for long like it used to.
It takes 5 hours to fully charge the Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 7's battery. It is recommended to fully charge the battery before using it for the first time or when they have been unused for extended periods.
Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 5 takes 5 hours to fully charge the battery
Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 5 has a battery level indicator, an indicator shows you when the device has a low battery. The battery indicator lights indicate the charging status of your speaker.

Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 7 can be used wirelessly, wireless devices allow users more freedom of movement.
An auxiliary input allows you to play other audio sources by connecting them through a simple audio connection like a 3.5mm jack
Being an industry-standard audio plug, a standard 3.5mm male connector is suitable for use with all MP3 players and computer sound cards. This means that it is commonly used in stereo headphones to your phone or connecting your phone to an external amplifier, sound bars, your car radio, etc.
Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 7 has this connector giving it a wider range of connectivity with most of the sound devices out there. All plugs have at least a tip and sleeve with the number of rings that stand as a differentiating factor.
Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 5 too has this kind of connector
Bluetooth is a wireless technology that allows you to easily transfer data between different devices, such as smartphones, tablets, and computers.
Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard that allows data transfers between devices placed in close proximity, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves. Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 7 has a v4.2
Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 5 has a Bluetooth version of v4.2. Newer versions provide faster data transfers.
Wi-Fi is a wireless networking technology that allows devices such as computers, and mobile devices .i.e smartphones and wearables to connect and interact with other devices on the internet, the Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 7 can connect to Wi-Fi.
With more USB ports, you are able to connect more devices, like those you save your music on, Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 5 has 1 only
