Apple’s HomePod has, by all measures, been a huge success. The PR person switched playback between the HomePod and three other devices: Sonos One ($200), Amazon Echo Plus ($150), and Google Home Max ($400). Each song would play for twenty seconds (with optional replays) on each of the same four devices used in Apple’s listening experiment. The Echo used Bluetooth (which may degrade music before transmission); Sonos used Ethernet, Google Home Max used an input miniplug, and HomePod used Apple’s proprietary Wi-Fi-based transmission system, AirPlay. Head to head, does the Apple HomePod really sound the best?
