Apple HomePod - The New Sound of Home

The Apple HomePod is a breakthrough in home smart speakers. With more of a focus on the quality of the music you listen to, Apple have produced a powerful speaker that sounds amazing and adapts to wherever it's playing. It's the ultimate music authority, bringing together Apple Music and Siri to learn your taste in music. It's also an intelligent home assistant, capable of handling everyday tasks - and controlling your smart home. HomePod takes the listening experience to a whole new level. And that's just the beginning.

A breakthrough speaker all round.

We completely reimagined how music should sound in the home. HomePod combines Apple-engineered audio technology and advanced software to deliver the highest-fidelity sound throughout the room, anywhere it's placed. This elegantly designed, compact speaker totally rocks the house.

Deep bass. Engineered to lower the boom.

We built the high-excursion woofer with a custom amplifier to play a wide range of deep, rich bass. A powerful motor drives the diaphragm a full 20 millimetres - remarkable for a speaker this size. Meanwhile, HomePod uses an advanced algorithm that continuously analyses the music and dynamically tunes the low frequencies for smooth, immersive sound.

Seven tweeters. Amazing sound from every angle.

HomePod has a unique array of seven beamforming tweeters. Each with its own amplifier and transducer. And each custom designed with a precision acoustic horn that focuses sound for tremendous directional control. Creating an all-encompassing sense of space - and consistent, high-fidelity audio everywhere in the room.

A8 chip. The biggest brain ever in a speaker.

An Apple-designed A8 chip powers the most complex audio innovations in HomePod. Like real-time modelling of the woofer mechanics. Buffering that's even faster than real time. Upmixing of both direct and ambient audio. Beamforming so the microphone can hear you over the music. And advanced echo cancellation. So you get amazing sound without even thinking about it.

Beautiful design with a purpose.

HomePod is wrapped in a seamless mesh fabric designed for both aesthetic and acoustic performance. Available in white and space grey, it's gorgeous from every angle - yet virtually transparent to the music. And at under 18 centimetres tall, it can fit anywhere in your home.

It's easier than easy. It's automatic.

Setting up HomePod is quick and magical. Simply plug it in and your iOS device will detect it. Equipped with spatial awareness, HomePod automatically adjusts to give you optimal sound - wherever it's placed. It can even hear your requests from across the room while loud songs are playing. All you need to do is enjoy your music.

Senses the room and tunes the music. All by itself.

Place HomePod anywhere in the room. It automatically analyses the acoustics, adjusts the sound based on the speaker's location, and separates the music into direct and ambient sound. Direct sound is beamed to the middle of the room, while ambient sound is diffused into left and right channels and bounced off the wall. So your music sounds amazing, wherever you are in the room.

Create stereo sound with a second HomePod.

Put another HomePod in the same room and they automatically detect and balance each other. With advanced beamforming capabilities, a HomePod pair is able to create a wider, more immersive soundstage than a traditional stereo pair.

+ Good looking great sound. Easy to use.
- Not fully developed when released so initially lacking some features. To be fair many of these are being sorted with regular software updates.

+ Quality of speaker, sleak design
- Lack of apps, inflexibility of alarms/timers, not being able to play radio stations not on Apple Music, feels like a rushed out product so hope things will improve as software develops

Confirmed Purchase: 08 March 2018

+ Beautiful design. Wonderful musical cadence and well balanced and strong sound. For now it represents a superior product to its closest competitors.
- Siri, does by and large respond to your requests. However, there certain deficiencies in as much that it does not always respond to one’s requests and altough Apple vaunts it has a huge music base of songs there are notable lacunae especially when trying to source certain Soca / carnival music from a particular year’s hit parade. I find this annoying as you can easilyYouTube these songs your wish to listen to which for inexplicable reasons Siri does not allow you to access. Apple needs to review such criticisms and make it easier to access its putatively vast music data base. It is expensive when compared to its nearest rivals in terms of sound quality.

+ Love the connection to Apple Music and the speed your requests are granted!
- Dose not always understand your requests, which can be quite amusing or frustrating. But you need to learn how to phase them. Haven’t yet worked out how to sync more than one phones playlist. The only music radio stations is beats!
