I have recently added my first HomePod and have been absolutely loving it! (Why did I wait so long?)
The Siri smart assistant is what it is - very good at what it does but probably not yet up to par with Amazon or Google. However voice recognition is excellent and highly accurate!
However the audio quality is excellent and the integration with Apple Music and optional integration with Pandora puts my entire music library only a voice command away!
Other music services also work well via AirPlay as long as the device your app is on is AirPlay compatible. Of course, all Apple phones and tablets are, however I’m not sure about other vendors devices.
I have already purchased a second HomePod which I will be adding to pair in stereo with the first one. However I am planning to further deploy units in our home. I absolutely LOVE the audio quality of these devices, however I am curious to get feedback from anyone who can compare their audio quality to the HomePod Mini.
The smaller size could make the Mini less obtrusive in a bedroom setting, but I don’t want to have to settle for “small” sound quality! I don’t need quite as much power in a bedroom speaker, but I still want the full, rich sound with deep bass and crisp, clear highs.
How do these compare in your opinion?
