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.
