After careful consideration, we’ve decided to end support for the Cortana service integration in the Harman Kardon Invoke speaker in early 2021. We know that most of our customers primarily use the Invoke to play music because of its premium quality sound. To make sure you can keep listening to music or your favorite podcasts, we’ve worked closely with Harman Kardon to create a Bluetooth-enabled device transition plan that we hope will help ease the impact of this change. 

Customers who receive a firmware update from Harman Kardon in early 2021 will still be able to continue listening to their favorite music, podcasts, and radio stations on their Invoke via Bluetooth. The firmware update will be delivered automatically to devices connected to Wi-Fi within six months of its release. Once the Invoke is updated, Cortana will no longer be accessible on the device. The update started rolling out to all devices in March 2021.

Additionally, we offered Invoke customers one Microsoft Store promotional gift card per active Invoke. The gift card program ended on August 1, 2021. All gift cards that were not redeemed before this date have expired.

We’ve spent a lot of time thinking through this transition and understand that these changes may be disruptive to some of our customers. We look forward to continuing to innovate on ways Cortana can help you navigate the modern workplace so you can save time and focus on the things that matter most in your day.

Frequently asked questions

A: After careful consideration, we’ve decided to end support for the Cortana integration in the Harman Kardon Invoke speaker in early 2021. We’ve worked closely with Harman Kardon to create a device transition plan that we hope will help ease the impact this has on some of our customers.  

As we shift Cortana to a more productivity focused transformational AI-powered assistant experience in Microsoft 365, we need to shift our areas of innovation and development to provide our customers the best possible experiences. Part of this shift involves rethinking Cortana’s integration within the Harman Kardon Invoke, where few users engage in the productivity tasks that Cortana is focused on. We greatly value our customers, and this was a tough decision we did not take lightly.  

We are excited for what the future holds for Cortana and all the productivity assistance it will provide our customers in the future through deeper integration within Microsoft 365 tools and services, and have taken steps to minimize the inconvenience to our active users.  

A: Although Invoke users will no longer be able to access Cortana through their device as of early 2021 when they receive the firmware update from Harman, customers will still be able to leverage the premium quality sound available with the Invoke via Bluetooth. Customers will automatically receive the firmware update when their device is connected to Wi-Fi.

A: If your Invoke speaker is connected to Cortana via Wi-Fi, then Cortana will automatically install the update silently in the background – you will not need to take any action. After the update Is installed, your Invoke will perform like other Bluetooth speakers – you will be able to pair it with your phone or other audio source and stream music to it. But Cortana and other Wi-Fi functions will no longer be available. 

A: Harman plans to roll out the firmware update in early 2021. We will update the support page once dates have solidified.

A:  The gift card program ended on August 1, 2021, and all gift cards that were not redeemed before this date have expired. Gift cards that were redeemed before he expiration date must be spent within one year of the day they were redeemed.  See full promotional gift card terms at Microsoft gift cards terms and conditions.

A: No, gift cards are for U.S. Invoke customers who were using Cortana on their Invoke prior to July 31, 2020 (the date of the announcement of end of service). See full terms above.  

A: If you claimed a Microsoft gift card for your active Invoke but are having difficulty using it at the Microsoft Store, including issues with expiration dates, contact [email protected]

A: The MAC address is a 12-character alphanumeric code that can be found on the bottom of the Invoke, or in the Cortana mobile app under Devices > Settings.

A: Once the Invoke is updated, Cortana will no longer be accessible on the device, but customers will be able to continue listening to their favorite music, podcasts, and radio stations on their Invoke via Bluetooth connection to another device.

A: After the update, the top panel touch function will control Bluetooth audio playback. The blue ring will be removed from top-panel animations. For detailed information about how to operate your Invoke speaker with Bluetooth, please visit www.harmankardon.com/invoke.

A: No. The Invoke does not support other digital assistants.

A: You can still use the Cortana mobile app to configure your device through early 2021. After the Cortana mobile app retires, you will still be able to configure and update your Invoke through the Cortana Device Setup app on Windows 10.

Note: It is not currently possible to set up your Invoke speaker using iOS version 14.2. Please upgrade your iOS to a newer version or use one older than 14.2.

A: To receive the update, your Invoke must be connected to the internet and kept online overnight, between 2 AM and 5 AM local time. The update started rolling out to some devices on 2/25/2021 and will roll out to all devices in the following weeks. 

If your speaker isn’t already connected to the internet, it’s encouraged that you connect as soon as possible to ensure you receive the update prior to July 31, 2021. Please note that the Cortana service on the Harman Kardon Invoke will end in the coming months regardless of whether you receive the update.

A: After the firmware update, you will be able to pair your Invoke with your phone, PC, or another device via Bluetooth. To enter pairing mode on your Invoke, shortly press the Bluetooth button, then find your Invoke (HK Invoke_XXXXXX) in your device’s Bluetooth settings. You will no longer need the Cortana App to listen to your favorite music, podcasts, and radio stations on your Invoke.

A: Signs you have received the update:

  • When you press the Bluetooth button, you see three spinning white lights and hear a sound that lets you know it’s in pairing mode.

  • There’s a blue light and no voice response when you tap the touch surface.

  • There's no voice response when you say, "Hey Cortana."

  • There's no red or white light when idle.

If you haven’t received the update (and your device is plugged in and not muted) Cortana will respond to “Hey Cortana” or when you tap the top of the device. 

A: Unplug your device for at least one minute and then plug it back in. This should re-trigger the firmware update. Once it’s finished you will be able to connect to Bluetooth.

A: Even if this is the first time that you set up your Invoke, you can still receive the update for Bluetooth-only functionality. You must go through the initial Cortana setup for the update to come through. To set up your device see, Set up my Harman Kardon Invoke with Cortana. 

A: If you change your Wi-Fi network name and password after you’ve received an update, the Invoke will permanently disconnect from your Wi-Fi network and the Invoke will not receive any further updates. Keep your Invoke connected to receive all the updates. Once your device is fully updated Wi-Fi will disable automatically. We expect Invokes to be fully updated by July 31, 2021, so please don't purposely disconnect your device from Wi-Fi before then. 

A: This is a known issue and we’re currently working on a fix that will roll out in a future update. 

A: The Microphone button reset feature has been temporarily disabled while we roll out the updates and will be re-enabled after the final update.

The pinhole reset option is still available, but it’s not recommended because it will disconnect the device from Wi-Fi. Once your device disconnects from Wi-Fi, you won’t be able to reconnect and therefore won’t receive the update.

A: Unplug your device from its power supply for 2 minutes and then plug it back in. Two circling white lights will signal that your speaker is updating.

If you don't see 2 circling white lights, leave it plugged in and connected to Wi-Fi overnight. The speaker should receive the update between 2 AM and 5 AM local time. 

A: The gift card program ended on August 1, 2021. All gift cards that were not redeemed before this date have expired. Gift cards that were redeemed before August 1, 2021 must be spent within one year of the day they were redeemed.  See full promotional gift card terms at Microsoft gift cards terms and conditions.

Ratings and Reviews

Does not find Sabre SB35

This app is horrible. I’ve had the Sabre sb35 for some time now and the physical remote control for the sound bar is absolute garbage. It doesn’t even work half the time. So I’ll just download the app and use my phone for the remote, right? There isn’t even an option for the sb35 in the add speaker list. How do you make a soundbar, that retailed msrp for $1000 and have the absolute most god awful remote that a company has ever created, then not even have development support for applications that you provide. Get it together Harmon Kardon, I would give zero stars if the sound bar didn’t sound so good.

Really not so bad

Don't know if previous versions were really that lousy, but I just installed in July the app works fine with my 3770 (a receiver I freakin love, so that probably factors in to this review...).

The app works fine for what it's supposed to, all the basic functions you get out of a remote. Although its definitely disappointing that there's no 2 way communication with the receiver. Like if I'm streaming with the vTuner as I so often do, I'd love to see the station I'm listening to on the app, as opposed to just tune up or down blindly. Update that functionality and it deserves 5 stars all day!

Works with AVR1700

Works from my iPad with my AVR1700. Can stream directly from iTunes to the receiver (in addition to/instead of within the HK app itself) with volume function. For AirPlay, be sure to put the receiver on "Server" mode and not on "Network" mode, even though the HK app sees the receiver via Ethernet on both settings. I've noticed a few crashes with the app itself when changing settings, but I have had no issues when simply streaming from iTunes instead.

Harman Kardon

South Korean division of Samsung electronic company

Harman Kardon (stylized as harman / kardon) is a division of US-based Harman International Industries, and manufactures home and car audio equipment.

Harman Kardon was originally founded in 1953 by business partners, Sidney Harman and Bernard Kardon.[1]

History[edit]

In the early 1950s, Sidney Harman was the general manager of the David Bogen Company, a manufacturer of public address systems at the time. Bernard Kardon was the chief engineer at Bogen. Due to management changes at Bogen in the early 1950s, both men resigned. With $5,000 investment each, Sidney Harman and Bernard Kardon founded the Harman Kardon Company in 1953.

In the 1950s Harman Kardon designed some of the first high fidelity audio products that lent to starting the high fidelity business. Integrated receivers (with a tuner, preamplifier and power amplifier) was an idea to introduce and provide high fidelity performance in a single unit. However, integrated high fidelity receivers were not new as, for example, Scott Radio Laboratories had manufactured such items in the late 1930s.[2] The company's first product was an FM tuner.

One year after its founding, in 1954, Harman Kardon introduced their compact size high fidelity receiver, the Festival D1000. The D1000 was one of the world's first AM/FM compact Hi-Fi receivers, and a forerunner to today's integrated receivers. This monaural unit was aimed to introduce non-technical consumers to high fidelity and combined many now-familiar features such as a tuner, component control unit and amplifier in a single chassis. The shape, form function and size of the D1000 was a forerunner of the modern integrated receiver. Early Harman Kardon Hi-Fi equipment can be identified by a distinctive design of a copper plated chassis with a copper and black color scheme for panels and enclosures.[3]

By 1956, Bernard Kardon decided to retire and sold his interest in the company to Sidney Harman. As the sole head of Harman Kardon, Harman continued to make the company a technical leader in Hi-Fi products. Sidney Harman would change the company's name to Harman International, but the receivers, tuners and amplifiers were still branded Harman Kardon. The products continue to be branded as Harman Kardon.[citation needed]

In 1958, Harman Kardon introduced one of the first stereo receivers, the Festival TA230, once again aimed at non-technical users with the intention of making high-fidelity stereo widely available. Stereo sound was achieved by using one channel from the AM band, and one channel from the FM band. This early form of stereophonic reception was called simulcast stereo. Early FM broadcast signals did not have the stereo carrier (pilot) signal that carried the stereo left and right channels. After the stereo signal standard was established, a stereo multiplex circuit connected to or built into the receiver was used to decode the stereo signal. The first true FM Multiplex Stereo Receiver was sold by H.H. Scott in 1961 with introduction of the Model 350 tuner.[3]

In 1959, Harman Kardon marketed the Citation II, an early ultra wideband stereophonic tube amplifier. It featured 60 watts/channel output with a frequency response of 18-60,000 Hz at 20 watt output.[4] The company promoted their philosophy of designing high fidelity sound using amplifiers that provided widest possible audio bandwidth. Although the human ear highest audible range is around 20,000 Hz, the full range of sound goes beyond that with harmonics and overtones that may be beyond the hearing range of the human ear. These harmonics interact with other frequencies to produce audible secondary sounds or interference.[3]

In 1969 Harman bought the major speaker manufacturer JBL. In 1970 Harman marketed the first stereophonic cassette recording deck with Dolby B noise reduction.[3]

In 1976, Harman supported Jimmy Carter's bid to become President of the United States. When Carter became President, he appointed Harman to be the Deputy Secretary of Commerce. As US law required appointees to have no direct business interests in day-to-day activities, Harman had to sell the company, and he sold the company to Beatrice Foods, a large conglomerate, for $100 million.[5]

1980 brought the introduction of the Citation XX high current amplifier, which provided quicker response to large signal transitions from the power amplifier to the speakers. The Citation XX amplifier was called "the world's best-sounding power amplifier" by the editors of The Audio Critic magazine.[6] The amplifier was designed by Finnish engineer Dr. Matti Otala [fi] who discovered transient intermodulation distortion (TIM) in 1970[7] and worked to mitigate its effects in the following years. The Citation XX was a project to get the best possible measurements of output signals, and the best perceived sound.[8] A record player with tangential pick-up arm Rabco was released in 1980, too.[9]

After the Carter presidency, Harman regained ownership of Harman International. In 1980 he purchased Harman International from Beatrice Foods for $55 million.[10] However, the receiver group was not included in the purchase because Beatrice Foods had previously sold the group to the Japanese company Shin-Shirasuna. The Harman Kardon receiver group was the heart of Harman International, and in 1985 Harman purchased the receiver group and returned the company to its pre-1976 form.

From 1999 to 2007, Harman Kardon worked to develop digital processing for audio products. In 1999 the company introduced the CDR-2 compact disc recorder, the first with 4X high speed dubbing. In 2000, Harman Kardon produced the AVR-7000 audio-video receiver, which was able to decode and process HDCD.

Harman retired in 2007 at the age of 88. At that time he hired technology executive Dinesh Paliwal to succeed him as CEO.

On March 11, 2017, Samsung Electronics announced the acquisition of Harman for a reported purchase price of $US8 billion.[11]

Harman Kardon Soundsticks

The Harman Kardon iSub 2000 Subwoofer and SoundSticks were introduced at the July 2000 Macworld expo. Harman Kardon partnered with Apple to design and manufacture these products.[12]

Apple did the industrial design and mechanical engineering to have the product fit into the Apple product family. This product won an Industrial Design Excellence Awards gold award[13] and was featured on the cover of I.D. magazine. The SoundSticks II were a minor upgrade, with the addition of capacitive volume control buttons and a 3.5mm mini-jack input replacing the previous USB input. The SoundSticks III were a further update changing the styling slightly using black highlights and white lighting to match the new iMacs, instead of green and blue of the original SoundSticks and the SoundSticks II.[14] The Soundsticks Wireless introduced the capability to accept Bluetooth inputs. However, it retains the wires between the speakers.[15]

Car audio[edit]

Harman Kardon supplies or supplied audio equipment to several vehicle manufacturers including Volkswagen, Audi, BMW, Land Rover,[16]Mercedes-Benz, MG Rover, Volvo, Buick, Kia, Ssangyong, MINI, Saab, Harley-Davidson, Chrysler, Alfa Romeo, Dodge, Jeep,[17]Ram, Daihatsu, Toyota, Honda, Jaguar, Suzuki, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Subaru and Tata Motors.

Computer speakers[edit]

Harman Kardon has made desktop computer speakers. Harman Kardon has also made laptop speakers, which have been used in certain models of Toshiba, Acer notebooks, Asus laptops, AppleiMacs and Huawei's M5 tablets. A pair of Harman Kardon transparent spherical speakers, along with the Apple G4 Mac Cube for which they were designed and produced from 2000 to 2001, are housed in the permanent collection of New York's Museum of Modern Art.

Smart speakers[edit]

In 2017, Harman Kardon released a smart speaker, powered by the Microsoft Cortana virtual assistant, called Invoke. In August 2018, Harman Kardon announced the Citation 500, a US$700 smart speaker running the Google Assistant.[18]
