HomePod (2nd generation): Apple’s second shot at the high end
HomePod 2.0: Apple’s Second Shot at the High End
If you’ve ever wanted to be showered in glorious Apple-grade sound, the HomePod 2.0 is without a doubt the speaker to get. That is, if you’re willing to pay Apple’s sky-high price tag!
This $299 beast boasts a ton of goodies, perfect for anyone looking to up their sound system. Seriously, this thing has everything:
- improved audio for you to hear every element of a song
- interactive Siri, always ready to answer any query
- an iconic design, taking the original HomePod’s aesthetics to the next level
- compatibility with Apple Music and sound coming out of your Apple devices
Worth the Splurge?
It’s not easy to pull out your wallet for the Apple HomePod 2.0. But then again, the sound quality is *undeniable* — plenty of bass and a loud, expansive soundscape. Plus, the designs looks *beautiful*, giving a new modern home decor statement.
However, it’s worth considering a few things before making the purchase. Though Siri has certainly improved in terms of accuracy and functionality, it still doesn’t compare to Alexa & Co. And since it’s an Apple device, it only support Apple Music. Still, if you’re an Apple family, this speaker is a great choice for its compatibility and top-notch sound.
At the end of the day, the choice is up to you. The Apple HomePod 2.0 is really the cream of the crop when it comes to sound. But with a hefty price tag and limited music streaming options, it’s no surprise that this elite speaker is only for the most committed Apple fans!
