HARMAN International on Monday introduced its voice-activated speaker “Harman Kardon Allure” in India for Rs 22,490. Originally unveiled at the IFA Berlin show in August this year, the device is available for “Prime” members on Amazon.in.
“Ever since its launch at IFA, we have seen tremendous interest and demand for the ‘Harman Kardon Allure’ from our Indian customers,” Sumit Chauhan, Vice-President, Lifestyle Audio Division, HARMAN India, said in a statement.
This hands-free speaker is powered by Amazon “Alexa Voice Service”. The device can be connected to “Alexa” through Wi-Fi to provide information, place an order, play music, among others.
Users in India can enable over 11,000 skills on “Harman Kardon Allure”, the company claimed. Place it anywhere and the speaker will be able to fill any space with refined and powerful 360-degree Harman Kardon sound, it added.
The device sports 360-degree ambient lighting design that reacts to voice commands and moves along with the rhythm of the music. There is built-in four-microphone array with advanced noise-cancellation technology that lets the user have hands-free voice control from across the room.
The speaker has transducers and built-in subwoofer that claim to produce 360-degrees sound. The device also supports wireless Bluetooth streaming.
