On top of Alexa, the product boasts superior audio which seems to be one of the most criticised aspect of the Amazon Echo, might worth a look if you're looking for a substitute to Echo. Strangely, a simple Google search returned more info about Zolo Mojo (similar to this item but instead of Alexa, it's Google assistant enabled) compared to this version. Dunno if it's Google pulling strings. But hey, you can just return if you're not satisfied with this speaker. Supports bluetooth and there's AUX-in too so you can use it as a traditional speaker.


Superior Audio: Professionally tuned 5W high-excursion speaker and bass port deliver exceptional sound quality and rich bass from Halo's miniaturized body.
Alexa Built-In: Voice-activated Alexa functionality with over 10, 000 life-enhancing skills. Stream audio and music services (including Amazon Music Unlimited, TuneIn, iHeartRadio, Audible); check news, traffic, and weather; find answers; control smart home devices; and shop with your voice.
Multi-Room Sound: With simplified Wi-Fi connectivity, link up to 6 Halo speakers simultaneously for house-wide audio and Alexa communication.
Bluetooth Connectivity: Not only a Smart Speaker, Halo works as a stand-alone high-fidelity Bluetooth Speaker.
What's in the box: ZOLO Halo, AC power adapter (5 ft/1.5 m), user manual, safety instruction card, Quick Start Guide, worry-free 18-month warranty and lifetime technical support.

is this any good? it's the price of the echo dot when reduced but has a bigger speaker. i guess it doesn't have the same amount of microphones to hear over the top of tv's etc. i can't find any reviews for it. wondering if i should get this instead of the dot
5Watt in a speaker of this size is pretty good .
Easily fill a big size living area .
I still have 2 small jams working together linked to my iPhone . And have been great for 3 years now . No need to be spending £150 plus on speakers unless your a sound purist !
I can't tell whether this uses "Alexa" wake word or you have to press a button. Might be a deal breaker
Mentions a zolo play app, guessing you can't use these integrated with other echo dots?
I actually have one of these and they are very good. You can indeed wake it just by saying 'Alexa'. Not sure on the integration with other echo dots but you can certainly integrate these with each other, think it's up to 6 halo speakers you can have connected at one time.
Had the Echo, sent It back, also had issues with Alexa on the dot, sent that back, back to using our old Sony dab mini system, sometimes old school is just easier, and sounds better, a lot better.
So this has a better speaker, but worse microphone / Alexa (Amazon Eco Dot v2 has a 7 microphone array)
Due to the fact no info is available, I'd assume this has 1 microphone.
Likely still a good price though
Can anyone confirm if this works with spotify premium , like the Echo does ?

You can play spotify through it but you can't tell it to play a certain song on spotify with voice control. Think this is the same with all Alexa supported speakers?

Pretty sure that is down to the Amazon Alexa software and not the actual speaker itself.

The Google assistant version has 2 mics, so guessing this does too.

I regularly ask my 2 Echo and Show to play a certain song from Spotify and it happens every time. Am I not reading your comment correctly?

Can Alexa app be used with it as well?

I also asked my Alexa for specific songs many times, and it worked grin from Spotify and Amazon music.

Asking Alexa to play a specific song works fine on my echo dot. I don’t say ‘Spotify’ in my request tho so maybe that’s where you’re getting the issue?
Doesn't support the calling function (for intercom) which is a shame but it's a great deal if you're not bothered about that feature.

Perhaps! Maybe I've just set it up wrong. Although, from a bit of googling it appears that Alexa can play Spotify from Amazon devices but can't do it from non-Amazon devices, which is very strange.
FM radio on this thing?

It's an internet connected device, so it will be internet radio through tunenl. It won't use a traditional radio signal. This device really needs to be connected to your internet to be of much use

Don't think so, but possibly TuneIn Radio will work as it does with Echos

Yeah that's the issue with these 3rd party devices Inc Sonos, you're relying on them to update. At least with the echo there are weekly updates to the app and all their devices are updated too.
Sold Out! Had stock whilst I was reading the page, then sold out!

Seems a nice piece of kit.
