Harman Kardon Allure Voice-Activated Speaker Overview

Combine the brains of Amazon’s intelligent assistant Alexa with the beauty of Harman Kardon audio, and what do you get? H-K’s new Allure, which listens carefully to your commands, and responds with gorgeous sound and stunning looks. Alexa’s skill set is constantly growing – it can place orders, lock doors, turn down the lights – and Harman Kardon’s proprietary multiple-microphone array hears you and responds, wherever you may be, while a multi-speaker array surrounds you with streaming songs. (Allure’s not the only smart speaker in Harman Kardon’s new line: the Invoke uses Microsoft’s Cortana, and JBL’s Link line stars Google Assistant.)

Around-the-room superior sound…

Harman Kardon, a pioneer in music reproduction since hi-fi’s earliest era, has engineered its sonic expertise into the Allure. A 60-watt amp drives three full-range drivers arrayed around the cylinder for a full 360-degree sound field, and a 3.5-inch low frequency driver supplies surprisingly strong bass for a device of this size.

…Plus pinpoint hearing

The four-mic array offers far-field voice recognition, and advanced noise cancellation circuitry means that Alexa hears and obeys, no matter where you’re sitting or what’s going on around you.

Flexible network options

The Allure supports dual-band (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz) Wi-FI networks, with 802.11ac support. And built-in Bluetooth allows you to directly stream you favorite music from your personal mobile devices.

Simple setup and control

The H-K Alexa setup app is downloadable for Android from Google Play, and for Apple devices from the App Store. And while you can order Allure around via voice, physical controls on top allow you to turn the mic entirely off and back on, change the volume, and awaken Alexa into action.

Amazon’s amazing Alexa

Alexa listens and obeys. Want news, sports scores or weather reports? Hungry for pizza? Need household supplies? Want to unlock the doors or dim the lights? Or just want to stream your favorite tunes from Amazon Music or other online services? Alexa understands all that, and more, with a library of skills that grows daily. And the Allure upgrades itself via the Internet, so it’s nearly future-proof.

Huge sound, solid bass
The Harman/Kardon Allure will fill a room with sound in a way that most Alexa speakers will not. Voice recognition is excellent even while music is playing. It has a larger footprint than many speakers but that's a worthwhile tradeoff for the exceptional sound.

Excellent when it feels like working
When working the sound is excellent and alexa works well. The problem is every morning when i come to use it it does not responed and does not show up on the app, i have to reset and start again a real pain. No internet outage or power cuts so must be a software issue.

Amazing sound. Echo integration needs more work
The audio quality is amazing as one would expect from Harmon Kardon. What is disappointing is the integration with Alexa/Echo is extremely basic lacking most features one would consider standard on any Echo enabled device. The device does not support multi-room audio nor are you able to customize the settings at all. No ability to enable a sound when you wake Alexa. No ability to customize the sounds at all. The HK app is for setup only. It has no customization settings aside from device name. Settings within the Alexa web page for the device are missing all customization settings. I was also surprised that HK support was completely unfamiliar with the product. I'm hopeful HK does some work on this.

No customer support or solutions for issues
The sound quality is good but I do not recommend this speaker. The volume controls are super fiddly. The bass is super overpowering, with no direct way of adjusting the intensity. ie cannot be done via app or using alexa voice commands. You cannot enjoy the music at louder volumes without thumping bass that rocks the whole house. The bluetooth audio is out of sync with videos. Customer Services haven't offered any solutions to my problems (they weren't even familiar with the speaker) so I am returning it.?
