Earlier today, Reddit user Hwheeler96 claimed that they visited someone with a test unit of Apple’s HomePod in their apartment and said: “the sound quality is spectacular.”
The user went as far as to say that it sounded better than a Sonos speaker (presumably the Play:3). The Redditor also claimed that the microphones are very sensitive, being able to pick up a normal speaking voice over music that was really loud.
You should take this report with a grain of salt, as there is no way to prove the Redditor’s claim. However, that being said, the user claims the device is so good that it is worth the wait.
Will you be picking up a HomePod when Apple starts selling them in stores? Let us know in the comments below!
