*To clarify my 3.5/10 rating:* - I got the chance to listen to some proper high end speakers (£500k+ for a single unit and I was in a room full of them). Japanese, analog, built in the 80's (I know, old ones) but the sound quality was outstanding.  Those are a 10 on my list. Compared to those, the HomePod is about a 3.5 in every single way - volume, highs, mids and low-ends.  However - if you want a more realistic rating system, compared to the Google Home & the Amazon Echo, the HomePod is the best sounding speaker. So, compared to your average smart speakers, the HomePod sounds the best.

how much does it cost
B Whammy (3 months ago)
ZONEofTECH Do you think using the Apple HomePod in the bathroom will damage the speaker? I see that there is an option for bathroom when setting up. I need a good sounding speaker for large bathroom space. Ideally a smart speaker.

I’m heavily invested in Apple ecosystem and I still wouldn’t get one due to his lack of abilities! I’m not gonna pay $350 for a speaker when I could just stream my music via Bluetooth to my 5.1 surround sound system i have through out my house! makes no sense and if for some reason I need to ask Siri something I always have my phone on me so I could hear it clear as day through out my whole house.

Your jokes are 10/10 😂
Erik Weimer (3 months ago)
Lol no one in their right mind thinks that a solid 3.5 out of 10 is a good speaker or a good score. You really need to revise what you’re saying when you say it’s a 3.5. The audiophile on reddit that reviewed it, who also loves very high end speakers, said it was amazing and unbelievable for its size. I’m taking your score with a grain of salt here.
Lorenzo Castiglia (3 months ago)
i believe that the homepod is very useful if you use homekit, maybe you should talk about that in the full review

Does it work if not plugged in?! If no, then why is it a big deal if you can remove the cable or not??
Eddie Pollard (3 months ago)
At this point, Siri has been around so long that there isn't a good excuse for her to be the worst of the AI assistants. How in the world did Alexa become more intuitive than Siri? I guess I'm a little over Apple releasing products that look amazing, but are still kind of in beta, and they will fix and update over time, and the. Come out next year with a product that's actually polished and functional. I've got a $30 echo spot connected to a $130 Pyle speaker system that rocks the house and sounds phenomenal, and and about $200 left over in my pocket!

If a HomePod is 3.5 against high end stuff being 10. How do you score Homemax and Amazon Echo?

HI Daniel! Great first review. I would like to replace my old stereo hifi with the HomePod. I saw your excellente review on the LF OLED TV and I would like to buy one. My question: Is it possible de play the sound of the LG OLED on the HomePod?

Did you just samt 3,5 of \ 10 xD
Chris Kidwell (3 months ago)
Just got mine ! I enjoy my amazon echos but I have apple stuff as well. The music from HomePod is awesome actually so far. And Siri can hear you when the volume is 100 percent and across the room.
uh-thisguy (3 months ago)
I had it, but took it back the next day. It sounds great, but it just wasn’t worth it to me.
frankthedsigner (3 months ago)
If HomePod can just be more integrated with all the Apple devices, controlling Apple TV and setting schedules/reminders, etc. then I'll consider one. I really want to get one to have the best sound, but I'm still satisfied with my current sound setup. Guess I'll wait for 2nd-gen, never falling into the trap of Apple with first gen products.
Madder Hatter (3 months ago)
Your videos are the only reviews I watch on Apple products because they are just so real and good.
Xavier Silva (3 months ago)
I don't think it's worth the price only works with Apple products no Bluetooth no NFC doesn't support Spotify or Google Music and it's very limited in what it can do it doesn't have voice recognition so it means anyone can use it when it's hooked up to your phone read your messages and reply back without you knowing it congratulations Apple for making another crappy product and one more thing if you're just buying this to play music just get a regular Bluetooth speaker for a lot cheaper price and I will work with any phone
Gadgetonomy (3 months ago)
And yet the sheep will still pay whatever Apple asks for this junk.
portedbikes (3 months ago)
Xavier Silva agreed

Why your HomePod doesn't have a cable connected??????

Dude seriously...

Cesar Charolet III (3 months ago)
You realize that Apple has even said that removing the power cord could damage it
Jack_Cydia (3 months ago)
It probably doesn't.
LegoStudios (3 months ago)
I wish it wasn't made by Apple. Then it would actually work with the other 75% of the world.
koolkatken (3 months ago)
LegoStudios Plenty of choice if you want the other 75%. But those already in the minority now have a good option too.
Indranil Ghosh (3 months ago)
Did you want to say 9.5?

Sound is good. Very limited use. Better of with a Sonos system. It’s just another half baked idea which is far too expensive
Steve Cantrell (3 months ago)
Do you really only give the sound a 3.5? Thanks for the quick review...
kenny Hine (3 months ago)
3.5 out of ten is actually really good? Could you explain? To me at 3.5 out ten is very poor????
Erik Weimer (3 months ago)
3.5 out of 10 is terrible for everyone. His review was fine, but scoring system is totally messed up.
allanes5 (3 months ago)
Yes; please clarify your scoring system.
johnnygoodface (3 months ago)
Please please clarify!
EQUATIC (3 months ago)
if really good is 3.5 what is 10???
Sid Sid (3 months ago)
I like the look of the HomePod, but Google Home Max can play spotify or google music and can create groups for entire house music...plus siri is dreadful.
Rj Yee (3 months ago)
3.5 / 10 is not good....
Junior Gonzalez (3 months ago)
By Apple Music do you mean only Apple Music or does it work with the songs you buy off of iTunes as well?
jayjaykay111 (3 months ago)
Junior Gonzalez from all the reviews I’ve seen it works with iTunes too, which is something you could confirm
Mohamed Lamey (3 months ago)
It is a replica of the bang and olufsen M5 360 wireless speaker, an you make a comparison video
The main man (3 months ago)
Some say the bass is a lil to much and the mids are not up to par
koolkatken (3 months ago)
The main man But most say for its size and compared to others, it sounds really good

Looks boss but sticking with Alexa but Evan she is stupid 😞
Andrew Keyz (3 months ago)
If it is more designed for music they should have called it Apple MusicPod instead.
koolkatken (3 months ago)
It’s also to tie in apple home kit too.
Kozmic SK1//Z (3 months ago)
That doesn’t make much sense
Manuel Gonzalez Parra (3 months ago)
I think that makes less sense than HomePod because iPod is even more for just music. HomePod is like an iPod for your home, hence HomePod
Karim Based (3 months ago)
you are the first one to tell us, that the cable is removable! Btw great video!
Jack_Cydia (3 months ago)
No he's not.
Ronny Hislop (3 months ago)
Small? That thing looks huge, in comparison to the google and Alexa product.
guy raz (3 months ago)
wait... what did you do with the power cable? did you manage to harmlessly disconnect it?
John Diaz (3 months ago)
HomePod gen 1 sucks but I believe gen 2 will match what google and amazon have now
Wilber Berrios (3 months ago)
On a scale 1-10 its a solid 3.5?? Really???
Eddie Xiang (3 months ago)
Looks like he's 10 is $500,000 speakers. So, 3.5/10 is ok. LOL
Wilber Berrios (3 months ago)
Me too haha i was like what??? I guess he got confused cant be 3.5 out of 10 i mean i would think not
G Pizarro (3 months ago)
Right when he said that I was like huh??? Scratching my head. I hope he meant 1-5 (Ha-Ha)...
Wilber Berrios (3 months ago)
Ok 3.5 out of 10 thas bad
Ian Summer (3 months ago)
Sounds really amazing he said, and get 3.5 out of 10...

Just FYI Apple has stated removing the power cable can damage the HomePod. I don’t own one but figure this information should be updated before this video contributes to people removing their cables

Why does everyone need to mention the HomePod cable is removable..

Saif or else the comments would be filled with “you forgot to mention...”

This video is only 9 minutes long whereas the title promises a 72 hour review, when will the rest be uploaded? 😂

Superlast (3 months ago)
Sounds good. But I already have Amazon Echo. You didn’t refer to that in comparison. What’s the functionality compared to Alexa?
Ian Buchanan (3 months ago)
Superlast I have both. Alexa is more useful for getting information, and Alexa enabled smart things are a lot cheaper and more readily available than Apple HomeKit things. HomePod sounds MUCH better and obviously the integration with Apple Music is awesome. My feeling is that Siri will get better which will make HomePod more useful but for me the sound makes it worthwhile as well as not having to manage two music subscriptions (Amazon Music and Apple Music).
Morten Olsen (3 months ago)
I do not care for the sound quality of this one. For 350 bucks the sound quality needs to be better than this!
tilen brečko (3 months ago)
Morten Olsen ok then
Morten Olsen (3 months ago)
tilen brečko I've already listened to it, otherwise I wouldn't have made this comment.
tilen brečko (3 months ago)
Morten Olsen try homepod. Then decide. Peace.
Morten Olsen (3 months ago)
tilen brečko depends on what you mean with good sound quality? If the low frequencies is supposed to bleed way up in the mid frequencies and outshine the highs and destroy the whole soundstage. Well then, this speaker is amazing then. 😂 If I wanted this kind of speaker I'd go with the B&W Zeppelin, there my friend, is great sound quality. Have a great day.
tilen brečko (3 months ago)
Morten Olsen the quality is better than a lot of $1000 speakers
