After the (almost) surprise presentation of Apple's HomePod connected speaker. The US media was able to test it at WWDC 17. The first returns are more than positive with incredible sound for only $ 349.
The HomePod competes with both Echo Amazon and Home of Google but also Sonos, Bose and company. With its design reminiscent of the Mac Pro 2013, the HomePod seems to have conquered music lovers.
Quality sound and a listening assistant
As we mentioned, HomePod has an A8 processor, 6 microphones, 7 tweeters and a subwoofer to reproduce a true sound adapted to the room thanks to a real-time balancing. The first feedback is clear: the sound broadcast 360 ° is clear and enveloping, the bass is rich and striking and Siri is very quick to help us. In the first tests, the headphone is better than the Sonos Play: 3 that we tested here.
A success that will happen to us in 2018 because the first deliveries are reserved for the USA, UK and Australia in December.
Here is one of the first video tests of HomePod
Price and date
HomePod will be sold in December in the US, UK and Australia to start at $ 349. It remains to be seen when he will arrive in Europe and especially in France.
