What Hi-Fi reviews Apple's HomePod:
As Sia’s The Greatest played out, the HomePod sounded impressive: strong bass rang out – which was perhaps the overriding audio takeaway for the speaker – but the vocals still seemed sharp and crisp.
In comparison, the Sonos Play:3 appeared uncharacteristically flat, while the Amazon Echo felt almost pedestrian.
I've had a bluetooth speaker for a few years now that's just clunky to get working with my iPhone. I'm really excited about a terrific-sounding speaker that just works. Oh, and having Siri will be pretty neat too.
