Place the four smart speakers behind a piece of screen and play the music directly on Spotify. Blind listening includes professional violinists, acoustic engineers, entrepreneurs and two high school students.
Interestingly, after many auditions, no one selected HomePod. Two chose Google Home Max and the other three chose Sonos One. It is worth noting that Google Home Max is priced at $ 399, HomePod is $ 349 and Sonos One is $ 199. Sonos One performance is very eye-catching, not only the lowest price, the sound is the best.
Of course, everyone has a different view of the sound quality. Some people like bass, while others like it. Yesterday, the review from Consumer Reports also found Google Home Max to outperform HomePod.
