Apple's smart speaker sounds great but feels unfinished.

HomePod has excellent bass and consistently superior sound quality across a wide variety of music genres.

I feel that the only situation where the HomePod is a reasonable purchase is if the user is already part of the Apple ecosystem, with an Apple Music subscription. The HomePod is a good speaker with an unrefined software.Read full review
I bought a smart speaker to make it easier to add joy to my home and remove friction from the joyless parts of our life. With HomePod, we hear great music more often and don’t spend moments doing tasks we don’t have to, which is a win in my book.Read full review
The HomePod is a phenomenal sounding speaker let down by the limitations of the Apple ecosystem.
I still think it’s an excellent speaker. But when I compare it to Sonos One, HomePod’s lead over the latter is not leaps and bounds, though. Sonos One is no joke, despite being half the price of HomePod.
As incredible as it is, is just another unfortunate example of Apple shooting themselves in the foot in a post Jobs era.Read full review
Sounds great – but only if you use Apple Music, an iPhone, and you can stomach the $350 price tag.

Apple has scored a home run with HomePod. It’s an excellent speaker and handy for controlling your connected devices. It’s audio quality is nothing short of remarkable and, when combined with Apple Music’s intelligence and versatility, it’s a package that is hard to resist.Read full review
Without being wowed by sound, prospective customers could be put off by Siri’s limited range of capabilities compared with the HomePod’s rivals.
The HomePod is a solid product. The HomePod is a great speaker to start, and there is plenty of room for it to get better with Siri capabilities.Read full review
