HomePod的优先事项

HomePod推出了更长时间的实践经验。这是Brian Heater,在TechCrunch上写作

正如所宣传的那样,这听起来很棒There’s little question here that the HomePod is a speaker first, smart second, bucking the trend of the earliest Echo and Google Home devicesApple’s engineers were able to get a lot of rich and full sound out of that little footprintThe speaker is particularly adept as isolating vocals and maintaining often muddled aural aspects, like background singers and audience sounds in live recordings.

HomePod和Amazon Echo之间的区别并不在于它们属于不同的产品类别他们属于同一类别除了小工具评论家之外,没有人会在他们的厨房中放置HomePod和Echo他们会有一个这当然是一场比赛。

区别在于设备背后的优先级所有这些都是音频播放器和有用的语音驱动助手,用于信息,通信和智能家居控制它们的目的是被广泛采用但是,这些优先级的顺序会产生巨大的差异HomePod的首要任务是音质这就是它花费350美元的原因亚马逊已经将价格放在首位,这也是Echo听起来不太好的一个原因。

很多下意识的“Apple has finally lost its goddamn collective mind if they think people are going to spend $350 on a HomePod that costs three times as much as and has far fewer features than an Amazon Echo and they’re only banging the drum about sound quality because Siri has so many problems“反应完全来自那些同意亚马逊关于Alexa产品优先事项的人的观点Google seems to be in more of a middle ground, offering both an Echo-ish-priced Google Home at $130 and a HomePod-ish-priced $400 Home Max (which, judging from initial reports, clearly does not sound as good as HomePod).

在媒体上写作,我认为Lance Ulanoff的标题是在错误的脚上开始的:“最近关闭了Apple HomePod,Siri昂贵的新家”如果HomePod的主要目的是作为Siri的家,那么是的,它很昂贵我想亚马逊的Echo设备就是这样的:亚马逊想要一种方法让Alexa尽可能多地进入人们的家中Alexa排在第一位,硬件排在第二位有了HomePod,我认为很明显Apple开始讨论如何为音乐播放创建高质量的扬声器使用Siri作为主要界面只是一个设计决策但是,如果HomePod的主要目的是比Google Home Max和Sonos One这样的产品听起来更好,那就是昂贵。

如果您对高端音频质量不感兴趣,或者对您可以添加到此类设备的助手功能感兴趣,HomePod显然不适合您不过,我认为这并不代表任何人。Serenity Caldwell首次寻找iMore是迄今为止我读过的最好的,因为它是从判断它是什么而不是它的竞争对手的角度编写的。
