Apple HomePod Review: A Purposeful Speaker

Posted on 02 August 2018 Tags: Home & Office

No question Apple devices have evolved over the years. And Apple HomePod is just another example of it. The portable speaker featuring accurate and high Siri voice, attractive design, and surround sound may become a stunning addition to your smart-home. With iOS 11.4, HomePod offers stereo pairing along with new multi-room audio support to improve the functioning of the smart speaker.

The setup of HomePods is quite easy – simply place the pair of HomePod speakers in the same room. The first speaker will sense that the second one is nearby. It will ask whether you want to pair them or not. You only need to activate one of them when using Siri commands. Moreover, iOS 11.4 devices come with default AirPlay 2. Plus, you can select multi-room audio in Control Center. It allows you to adjust the volume of each speaker. After installing, ask Siri to play music either in one room or in more.

The speaker is dense and weighs around 2.5kg with 172mm (6.8-inch) high frame. It sports a woofer along with seven tweeters with separate amplifier and six microphones spread around to pick-up your voice when you activate Siri. Apple HomePod sports only one wire, which prevents the hassle of long cords completely. This advanced device encourages you to control and manage it via Siri.

It is simple and functional. HomePod does not only provide top-notch sound but it increases the visual appeal of your space as well. The audio is splendid and fills an entire room. You will experience clear separation in all elements of a music track. Also, it offers strong bass with sharp notes. You will find plenty of clarity while listening to something like electronica. The clear vocals make this speaker worthy. The Apple HomePod, with its fantastic sound quality, can become your next speaker choice.
