“I’m an old-fashioned music listener and prefer to put on a record than go through the rigamarole of setting up a wireless speaker,” Jasper Hamill writes for Metro UK. But I’m starting to think that I might finally change my wicked old ways after trying out a pair of stereo Apple HomePods.”
“In my review of the HomePod, I said that anyone who can afford the £329 price tag should rush out and buy one because you’re really not going to get a better sounding wireless speaker at anywhere near the price,” Hamill writes. “Today I’m going to go a bit further and recommend you get the credit card out and buy two because linking two HomePods makes for a strikingly different experience.”
“The sound boost you get from two stereo speakers is also quite astonishing, with the huge, shuddering sub-bass boosted to room-shaking volumes and beautiful high or mids singing out clear and undistorted,” Hamill writes. “A pair of HomePods really does come close to matching the sound quality of a ‘real’ system costing thousands of pounds.”
