Apple has recently released the HomePod, the company’s version of a high-end smart speaker. But how does the sound quality measure up to existing models like the Google Home Max and Sonos One?

While smart speakers have been around for a few years at this point, the scene is gradually shifting more towards a focus on sound quality as the smart functionality has continued to improve. As the novelty of a voice-activated speaker has started to pale, more customers are looking for a media center that sounds great in addition to featuring the intelligence to interpret and respond to commands. The Apple $350 HomePod joins the $200 Sonos One and the $400 Google Home Max as some of the highest-quality smart speakers around, but does the Apple HomePod perform well enough to hang with these existing audio powerhouses? According to various media sources around the web, Apple’s newest smart speaker falls short when it comes to sound quality.

It’s important to note that the Apple HomePod does have high-end audio quality, but when compared to the performance of the Google Home Max and the Sonos One, it fails to offer any significant improvements over these tried and true competitors.
