Rated 4 out of 5 by from A really good choice for Apple centric folk I bought the Homepod on the launch date after reading all the Pre-reviews/hype and couldn’t be happier with the decision. We have a family Apple Music subscription and don’t use other music streaming so no issues for us in that department. I won’t go into details on sound/Siri etc as there are reviews galore on the web. What we find great is how easy it is to request music that will play straight away with fantastic depth of sound. The music selected when you ask Siri for “something I like” has introduced us to a wealth of new music that we are loving. I’m actually listening more to music at the expense of watching TV which is a good thing. Redirecting the sound from the Apple TV makes that a much better experience. Siri’s ability to hear requests from anywhere in the room at normal voice level is uncanny. Ability to Airplay from iPad, Mac is also very handy. Would thoroughly recommend for anyone in the Apple ecosystem with Apple Music

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Speaker Awesome speaker, with excellent bass sound. Music is perfectly balanced and its room analysation works great too. Although a bit pricey, if you already have brought into the Apple franchise this is a must have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best thing I’ve bought It looks good, ultra easy to set up, sound quality is amazing with deep base and crisp percussion. Also does lights on and off using Siri technology. Two friends bought 1 each the following day after viewing mine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product sounds amazing I have had my HomePod for around 4 weeks it set up on my NBN connection so easily and I play my music library and it sounds great. I often move it around to find the ultimate place for it. A friend bought one on the same day he is having on going issues setting up his music library as he has an ADSL connection. It keeps saying “I’m still setting up your music library” after just over 2&1/2 weeks. We are still hopeful. The voice control on mine works wonderfully as I also use HUE lights. I’m still learning all that it can do and am surprised how much I already rely on it. Functions like time timer weather alarms lights music are all quick and accurate. I look forward to what it will do with future updates. It’s pricey but a truly great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent- Definitely recommend! I bought this recently after comparing it to other speakers etc.. The sound quality is superb, crystal clear like it was intended to be listened to. It can go really loud and fills a large room with sound. It doesn't feel or sound like a cheap portable speaker either. If your unsure whether you should get one i would recommend going in store to see it, i did and i bought it straight away. For the sound quality their really is no other comparison. Siri isn't that intelligent but what she can do is really great. If you've got apple music on IOS she has access to the millions + library of songs and can play them all. You can tell her to set alarms, message someone, set alarms with just your voice and can control a homekit supported smart home. This speaker is super easy to set up and with just a couple of setting changes you can use it with all other apple products with ease regardless of IOS version (Siri voice control is only useable with ios 11 onwards FYI)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product I bought one to trial and went back the next day for another. The sound is on a par with my top line 9.1 system but only uses 7 watts each speaker where as the surround system uses just under 100 watts. Easy to set up and with two paired for stereo is impressive with great bass and lots of volume for tiny speakers that are realistically chap. Voice control is more useful than I expected. A great product especially since IOS 10.4.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound and easy to use Very good sound quality and ideal for a bedroom speaker . Easy to set up with Apple Music and Siri works well with the music requests. As it has been documented Siri needs some more smarts and is very limited .. works well with HomeKit approved devices . I use Philips Hue lights with it that work well . But you are buying this as a speaker and you use Apple Music .
