HomePod is priced at $349 U.S., which can be seen as expensive when compared to smart speakers from Amazon and Google. That said, Refinery29 got an early look at HomePod and compared its audio to Amazon Echo, Google Home, and Sonos One. He took another dig at Apple, saying "we believe in freedom of choice and don't want to lock people into a specific ecosystem - it's why we support more than 80 streaming services globally and will take an agnostic approach to voice assistants as well". The Sonos One is usually $199, which would make a pair of the smart speakers $398.
Sonos announced today, January 25, that it's selling two of its newest smart speakers for the price of a single HomePod, which is scheduled to be released February 9. The Google Home Max, which directly competes with Apple's Homepod also supports FLAC files, so while this is nothing new: you can rest assured you won't have to worry about skipped tracks because of mixed file types.
First launched in the fall, the Sonos One offers Amazon Alexa integration for voice control for some music services, including Spotify. The unit features seven tweeters and six microphones in a circular array, so it should fill a room instead of directing music in one direction.
HomePod is a sort-of multi-user device in that anyone can use Siri for music playback and smart home control.
HomePod is created to work with Apple Music, the company's $9.99/month Spotify-like service.
The only negative we had was the absence of Spotify voice controls at launch.
Crafted with Apple-engineered audio technology, HomePod uses advanced software for real time acoustic modeling, audio beam forming, echo cancellation and a lot more supported by Apple's A8 chip to deliver premium audio quality. Commands like, "Hey Siri, play blues" work as you expect.
The HomePod is natively compatible with Apple's HomeKit smart-home automation products, which ranges from lights and sensors, to switches and security systems.
But they're not just banking on this 2-for-1 deal in order to appeal to customers who are perhaps choosing between a Sonos One and a HomePod.
Additionally, the report said Siri will only call out notifications, including text messages and calendar appointments, when that owner is on the same network as the HomePod.
