Grab the Harman Kardon Invoke Cortana speaker for just $40

The Harman Kardon Invoke is back on sale, slashing Cortana-infused commands and impressive audio quality to its lowest price yet.

With an insane discount via the Microsoft eBay Outlet Store, this homely smart speaker has dropped to just $40 in the U.S. – hefty savings upon its original $200 retail price. Accompanied by free shipping, it's a deal that's hard to resist.

The Invoke melds Harman Kardon's audio know-how with Microsoft's digital assistant, first on store shelves in late 2017. Leveraging the same Cortana found on Windows PCs and Xbox One, it's a perfect companion for smart homes, entertainment, and productivity. As stated in our review, despite Cortana's shortcomings and lacking a "killer feature," it's a capable smart speaker that nails the home basics.

Essentially, the Invoke mimics functionality you'd find in other smart speakers that pack Amazon's Alexa or Google Assistant. Backed by crystal-clear, room-filling hardware in sleek "Graphite" black, the cut to $40 is an unmissable deal even for its quality alone. With a limited quantity available available at this price, be sure to act fast to secure your saving today.
