56318 ratings | 1564981 views
Google Home Max is a ridiculously powerful smart speaker for $400. Is it worth it?

Google home is really cool and useful with other smart home items. But it SUCKS when it doesn't work xD

I really like your reviews and as such I got a pixel2 that I absolutely love!! However, while watching this you activated Google assist about 8 times on my phone lol. Nothing like 8 unintended breaks.

At first I didn't bother with any videos about audio, until I heard some great speakers at a friend of mines place. It really makes a big difference in every single experienced with sound, especially music.

The Max sounds amazing in comparison to the others
Brent Tipton (10 days ago)
I know you can connect it to a turntable via the 1/8" aux input. Can the turntable output be broadcast to other connect Google Home/Minis, or is a direct input to the Max only? I'd love to be able to broadcast my turntable to my entire network of Home/Minis.

TheDanielShepherd (12 days ago)
Urgh, I can tell I hate the sound signature from that even from your short demo - that typical horrible boxy consumer speaker sound that they all seem to go for. For this price you could buy a Elac Uni-Fi which is about 1000x better sounding - granted you need an amp and another one, but these things are still expensive for dreadful sound quality and all those horrible over priced boxy junk from Bose, H&K, Sonos, JBL, B&W. You can get a pair of ADAM A7x studio monitors for this price and feel the sound in front of your eyes.

Can you please do an in depth review of the HP Elite x3?
2cool0 (13 days ago)
Wise leader Marques, tell me more about this chrome cast audio and google Home combining. If I get google Home mini and chrome cast audio can you also connect one more thing to the chrome cast audio? So say I have google Home mini connected but I want to play a song from my phone to the chrome cast audio. Can I do that while the Home mini is connected?

This shit is garbage for even $60. You're telling me this is more technology advanced and expensive to make than the PS4? You can big a big stereo surround system for that price. What's with stupid young people thinking this is worth the money? And I'm young myself.

I ended up buying one of these as well and fell into that niche of people who this thing was made for.  Ended up putting it right next to my bed since I liked it so much.  Really enjoying the Max! Thanks for the review!

When measuring speaker SPL don't measure so close. 1 meter is a good distance for most speaker and less is always bad. The closer you are the bigger the tolerance on your measurement.

Can the Max be paired with other Google Home devices? Can they play the same music at the same time? If I ask a question, will the closest unit answer the question, as it does with an Android phone and Google Home?
Takeit Easy (19 days ago)
Grr watching this with my Home in reach was a bad idea haha. However I will say it is really good at even quiet voices, as you said "Hey Google" my Chromecast turned down the volume quite low and the Home still picked you up so clearly.

Myst Morales (19 days ago)
Another piece of google trash. I have the Hotline number saved to my head because of calling so much because of issues almost everyday no matter how many replacements i have gotten; i still had the same type of problems !!! The source of the problem is the unfinished careless/abandoned software! Google cannot seem to get it right for some odd reason? Anything dealing with Google is a annoying problem especially with new updates crashing and breaking most systems which requires master resets repeatly which never end up working as good as it use to in the long run smh!. What is google's plot? ..

This garbage should only go for no more than 90$ (online) and 150$ (locally).

Not sure if its part of Google's complex YouTube algorithm but I've never search Apple Home Pod before yet when I typed A that was the first suggestion. That is weird because I was going to search that. Sorry found that pretty cool.

NIce video. So I am interested in this Chromcast thing (this is the first time I looked into it). I have a Denon 7.2 surround sound receiver with Polk Audio Signature series 7.2 set up. Could I use a normal Chromcast (not the audio, since I'll need HDMI) to do the same thing with the Google Home Mini?

Do you mind repeating how you could hook up a different speaker system through Chromecast? Thanks
Sam C (25 days ago)
Well, at least it’s designed to be a premium audio device, a device which promises premium sound, unlike the HomePod, which is basically at the same price.
