Harman Kardon Citation 300 Smart Speaker - Grey is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 41.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Needs serious improvement / upgrades Adjusting the volume does not adjust the volume of the assistant! so you lower the sound but the assistant still belows back. No tuning / EQ No easy way to turn off some lighting effects - if I turn the microphone off, there's a bunch of bright red LEDs on permanent display. Podcasts on the assistant are very random - I can't get any BBC podcasts to work (other than workaround using chromecasting). To be for, it's not clear whether that's an Assistant problem, or a hardware intergration problem. Volume adjustment buttons (hardware) only partly responsive as reported by other users. Pros: Solid, good quality, nice design. Good quality sound. Very powerful. Does not require seperate app / works with Google home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Harman Kardon Citation 300 Test of Harman Kardon Citation 300 Through Reviewclub I have been given the chance to try this speaker from Harman Kardon, This is a speaker with Google assistance which is exactly what I was looking for, I think the function with Google assistance works pretty well. Google needs to learn voices and commands but it works better every day. The sound in the speaker is very good and the design was for my part appealing, the speaker can be placed anywhere without having to be ashamed. I use the speaker to turn on and off the lights in the house, check the traffic before I go to work check weather forecasts and so on. I'd rather add the difference to this than buy a Google Home speaker.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The product is broken When I connect this speaker and play the music, it has a lot of noise. I tired to change the wifi connection, reset the settings, change the powet connector but no use. The right side speaker looks broken. Now I give up. I don't understand how this kind of faulty product is shipped. Lokks like there is no quality control. I want to return and get my money back. But I ordered from over oversea so not sure what to do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Plugged in, connected up and WOW!! This speaker is better than advertised. We have two folks in our home and it was simple to have it identify both. Great sound. We are jazz fans and this covers the spectrum of sound very well. Clear highs and mid-range with strong, but not obtrusive bass. Significantly better than our Friends' other smart speakers. We have it set up in the middle of a large room behind a couch. Fills the room at 40% Attractive cabinet. The Google Assistant is spot on for a number of challenging requests. Extremely pleased. Only downside is we cannot get it to pair with our I-Pad. I'll check that out and revise if that is just our lack of knowledge. If you are in the market for a smart speaker, this is an excellent value!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great sound when it actually works.. I bought this nearly a month ago and it took me hours to finally get it connected to wifi. Initially it kept saying it couldn’t connect. Once I got it working I enjoyed it for hours. Then next day all of a sudden it says it’s hasn’t been setup yet. Weird. Same ongoing issue that’s annoying to get fixed every time I want to use it. Also shipping was HORRIBLE! The box was bent and dented and not even taped well. You could literally stick your hand in

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic purchase I just love this speaker. It looks so stylish, has google assistant and incredible sound. It really sounds so good. I read many negative reviews and decided to give it a chance anyways. I am very happy that I ordered it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ordered two. One doesn't work... Was able to install the first one fine, though only after it complained that it couldn't connect to WiFi (but had done so successfully, only the Google Home app didn't know that it had). For the second one, the install went more smoothly, but the actual device is inoperable because the LCD track pad doesn't work. It is stuck on "Select Your Language" and no amount of pressing, touching, and sliding will let me select a language. Very poor quality control to ship a speaker when the main physical interaction method is inoperable.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok sound, easy setup (the second time) Setup failed at some point so had to reset and do it again. No biggie except what the heck??. Then the function to record button shortcuts suffers of non intuitive programming. It will take me 6 lives to do it.. Not worth the time typing. Finally Spotify most times does not recognize it. I have to open home from Google, click on cast to device, and then Spotify can see it. Again sloppy programing. My heos speaker, the smaller one sounds almost as loud and just as clear but the difference is that it just works consistently

Can a Citation 300 be used for a Conference Call? It seems echoing all the time from my experience, but maybe I didn't set up correctly?

Asked by: Veronika
I'm using my 300 for video calls over Google Meet, Zoom and Skype. Works well. I'm using a Microsoft webcam with built in mic, and my Citation 300 for sound.

Hi there, Can you tell me how I can connect my Citation 300 speaker to my PC via Bluetooth without having to use Google Home? Thank you, Mitchell

Asked by: Mitchob
You will still need to set up our Harman Kardon Citation 300 first through Google Home app before you can use Bluetooth. After setting it up, press and hold the Bluetooth button or command Google to "turn on Bluetooth" to activate pairing mode, you'll then see under your PC's list of available Bluetooth devices our Citation 300 ready to pair.
