Like it or not, voice assistants are here to make your life a tad bit lazier. Don’t get us wrong, we are all for the couch potato lifestyle and the Allure does it with the usual style and quality that is quintessentially Harman Kardon. The Allure, powered by Alexa can play your favourite tracks while providing a richer, more premium listening experience than other voice assistants. It can also hail you a cab, order food online, make purchases on Amazon and even book you flight tickets. Design wise, the Allure would not look out of place on the bridge of the Enterprise, with its 360-degree ambient lighting that glows from within. The far-field voice recognition, with 4 built-in microphones answers voice commands from far and the built-in subwoofer provides a rich and powerful sound. At ₹22,490, the Harman Kardon Allure is a bit over-budget compared to other vice-assistants, but the design and build make it lustworthy.
