Finally bought a HomePod this weekend and I love it but…
Siri is always louder than the music, way too loud in opinion. Maybe it’s only a problem in small rooms but I can’t stand it.
Siri’s voice feedback should match the music’s volume or the user’s volume at least . It’s very uncomfortable to hear Siri shouting at you. That’s to me a design flaw.
I’m surprised that no one mention this on MPU but I’m not alone in this. A quick search shows threads on the Apple Support Community, Reddit etc. with the same complain.
Apparently there’s no way to set Siri’s volume independently from the music volume. I tried different suggestions mentioned in those forums but nothing really works.
Sad to see my HomePod go, it’s an impressive piece of hardware.
I wouldn’t hesitate to buy it again if Apple adds a setting to control Siri’s volume.
