Apple HomePod overview

  • 1Description

The white Apple HomePod is a wireless music speaker, a smart home hub, and a Siri-enabled intelligent assistant all rolled into one device.

Packed with Apple-engineered audio technology, HomePod uses advanced software for real-time acoustic modeling, audio beamforming, echo cancellation, and more. Powered by the Apple A8 chip, the HomePod delivers a wide, spacious soundstage. Using spatial awareness to sense its location in the room, the HomePod automatically adjusts the audio to sound optimal wherever it's placed. The large Apple-designed woofer delivers deep, clean bass while the custom array of seven beamforming tweeters provide pure high frequency acoustics with directional control. The array of six microphones can pick up your "Hey Siri" from across the room, even when loud music is playing.

Paired with an Apple Music subscription (sold separately), the HomePod provides access to up to 45 million songs. It also learns preferences and tastes that are shared across devices. Using Siri to deliver deep knowledge of artists, songs, albums, and more, HomePod can handle advanced searches within Apple Music's catalog, so users can ask questions like, "Hey Siri, when was this song released?" or "Hey Siri, can you play something totally different?" to change the mood.

The HomePod is more than just a wireless speaker. It has Siri built-in so you can send messages, set timers and reminders, and check the weather — all with just your voice. The latest business news, headlines, and sports updates stream directly to the HomePod from popular media sources, like NPR, CNN, ESPN, and more. HomePod can also be used as a speakerphone with the Apple iPhone for a hands-free conversation.

With HomeKit support, HomePod can control multiple home devices and control a number of different accessories at the same time. HomePod can turn on the lights, raise the shades, set the desired temperature, and more. You can even enable remote access and automations for certain times of the day.

The HomePod features 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5.0 technology. It is compatible with the iPhone 5s and later, iPad (5th gen) or later, iPad Pro, iPad Air or later, iPad mini 2 or later, or iPod touch (6th gen), running iOS 11.2.5 or later.

Deep Bass
The high-excursion woofer with a custom amplifier can play a wide range of deep, rich bass. A powerful motor drives the diaphragm a full 20mm. Meanwhile, HomePod uses an advanced algorithm that continuously analyzes the music and dynamically tunes the low frequencies for smooth, immersive sound.
Seven Tweeters
The 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 directional control. The seven tweeters create an all-encompassing sense of space and consistent, high-fidelity audio in the room.
Apple A8 Chip
An Apple-designed A8 chip powers the HomePod and its complex audio features, like real-time modeling of the woofer mechanics, buffering faster than real time, upmixing both direct and ambient audio, beamforming so the microphone can hear you over the music, and advanced echo cancellation.
Stylish Design
The HomePod is wrapped in a seamless mesh fabric designed for both aesthetics and acoustic performance. It also stands just under seven inches tall for a compact design.
Spatial Awareness
Setting up the HomePod is quick and easy. Simply plug it in and your iOS device will detect it. Equipped with spatial awareness, HomePod automatically analyzes 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. It can even hear your requests from across the room while loud songs are playing.
Apple Music
With an Apple Music subscription (sold separately), you'll have access to over 45 million songs. Siri helps you find exactly what you want to hear and what you want to hear next, including new music across a wide range of genres and moods. And friends connected to your Wi-Fi network can stream their music right to your HomePod.

When you're really into a song, say "Hey Siri, I like this" or "Hey Siri, add this to my party playlist." Based on what you say and play, Apple Music learns your taste in music, which means you can also just let it pick the songs. And when you open Apple Music on any other device, your playlists and preferences are right where you left them.
Touch Surface
Tap the top of the HomePod to play, pause, skip a song, or adjust the volume. Touch and hold the top to talk to Siri. You'll know Siri is listening by the LED waveform that animates with your every word.
With Siri, you'll be able to set timers, convert measurements, get translations, get live news, sports, weather, and traffic. You can also create lists that anyone can add to.
Calls & Texts
Use HomePod to send messages using just your voice. And when you receive a text, Siri can read it to you. For hands-free conversations, start or receive a call on your iPhone and hand it off to HomePod.
Just say "Hey Siri, turn on the lights" or "Hey Siri, make the room cooler." You can even ask Siri to set scenes, like "Good morning," that put multiple accessories to work — all at once. A wide range of accessories work with Apple's HomeKit platform. Just add an accessory to the Home app, then control it with your voice on HomePod.

    Apple HomePod reviews

    HomePod (White) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 36.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Audio for Music There other smart speakers available. Depending on your application, and budget if the HomePod is right for you. Apple used the extra cost in price on its device in sound quality. If you already have apple products you can use your calendar, reminder, and notes it can do those tasks, but anything more complex than that like purchasing things from Amazon. You may want to add an Amazon Dot. The build quality and sound stage is excellent nothing else comes close in sound on the same form factor. It will stream your itunes library or you can you use airplay to stream other sources that's compatible. A great product that will probably improve in time.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but could improve This review has two parts. 1. B&H was great! Wonderful price and delivery. Ive purchased items before from them and have always been more than satisfied. Now for 2. The HomePods sound cant be matched from the other devices out there. However it is very limited in its Hey Siri functions. Ive been using Amazon Echo (1st Gen) and it has grown into and information powerhouse with what it can deliver, but the HomePods Hey Siri is nowhere close to matching the functionality of Amazons Echo. If you want a great sounding music player with some other functions then HomePod is your pick. Hopefully Apple will improve the Hey Siri function as time goes on.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Updated review on stereo pairing Homepods I've updated my previous rating from 4 to 5 stars. The reason being that I discovered if I place the Homepods at ear-level and equidistant from a listening position, I get the imaging and depth I thought were missing months ago. At that time I place them on top of my existing speakers and they were slightly above my ear level. Now, with the lower placement I get more precise imaging of the music. The precision of vocals, esp females like Jennifer Warnes, is excellent. If there is a fault, it may be the upper frequencies that seem to drop off, or it may just be my aging hearing abilities. I really am enjoying the Homepods much more now. Siri has gotten better too, with the recent software updates. Highly recommended!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A real quality of sound from a real loudspeaker This unit was purchased to have music in the parts of the house where there was no existing sound system nor appropriate space to place one, such as the kitchen / breakfast area. The sound is amazingly deep and close to Hi-Fi quality for a single speaker, and it fits into my Apple-based distributed sound system across the whole house, becoming just one additional device on which music can be played from either an iPhone or iPad, or from the iTunes app on one of the computers. It is not small but neither is it obtrusive. It can be controlled directly using the tactile controls on the top, or from the device playing through it. Not cheap but definitely worth every penny.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Quality Audio I purchased a pair of Homepods for my living room and set them up as a stereo pair. I am an audiophile with an excellent stereo system and home theater downstairs. I was surprised at just home good the Homepods were as a stereo pair since my preferred seat is almost directly in front of one of the two home pods. In spite of that, the stereo effect is natural and clearly audible. As many other reviewers have noted the bass from the Homepods is solid and substantial, though in my opinion it is not over done. Ease of setup is notable and straightforward. Siri obeys my voice commands quite well. I did not purchase these for their smart speaker features as there are other smart speakers that do a better job in that area. However, for music, it is hard to beat the Homepods and I am very much enjoying them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing sound For the size, this speaker has a lot of heft and powerful sound. Planning on getting a 2nd one when Airplay 2 comes out. �I can easily play music from iTunes on any of my Apple devices, and although I don't use Siri that much, it's responsive and has accurately responded with news or music play directions. �Be aware that Siri will only respond to you, and be recognized by the Home app, if you've turned on 2-factor authentication, which is a pain w/Apple.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from 98% of what I want This is my second Homepod (first one was bought early-white) was waiting for Airplay 2 for stereo. I find I use Siri more than I thought I would from easy weather forecast to adding to grocery list (reminders) as I think of it to sending a quick message (Imessage) and use both the timer and alarm quite often. Music is terrific-big room with partial 2 story-I ask Siri to play one of number of playlists (about 98% accuracy), play Radio or even one of the NPR stations-and the sound is very very good, room filling, excellent bass and mid and with 2, well, stereo is....stereo. I have also tried it with one song in one room, one in another or same in both. Airplay 2 works very well. Recommend if you are an Apple user.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small But Powerfull I use my HomePod with Apple Music. Siri is good but not perfect, not as good as iPhone. Sound quality is very good with exceptional bass. Set up with iPhone is very fast. HomePod can be controlled from iPhone or Apple Watch. This item with Apple Music is a good match and it is possible I will never buy a CD again. All in all I could not be happier.
