July 2, 2020
Product : Amazon echo studio
Type : Smart speaker with Alexa and hub built-in
The amazon echo studio is a smart speaker by amazon which was released in November 2019. It is known for its good sound quality which is produced by 5 speakers built-in the echo studio for a deeper and rich sound experience. It also has the Alexa voice built-in to assist the user anytime.This speaker adapts to where it and matches the sound with the dimensions of the room it is in to give the user the best sound ever .
There are speculations that this is the best smart speaker ever.Is it ?
After reading the amazon echo studio review here,we may be able to answer this question or at least know where this speaker stands compared to the others out there .
Here are the points about the speaker that are going to be covered :
- Sound quality
- Built-in hub
- The amazon echo studio VS Sonos One
- Pros and Cons
This speaker has 5 little speakers built-in.Its sound is adaptive and has the and incredible effect. It feels like sound is coming from every direction.It is so smooth to the ear and enjoyable. The little speakers build- in the echo studio are positioned inside differently and on purpose.For music,this speaker brings out the sound as how the artist in the studio wanted it to sound exactly.It brings out al the layers of the voice and the instrumental,it is amazing.Its sound is designed to make people stand up and dance .
A smart home relies on a good flow of internet to function properly.That’s where the hub comes into play to help control all smart devices connected on the internet or through Bluetooth . The hub makes sure all the connected devices run smoothly and all the devices can be managed easily from one place using the hub. Smart devices in a home with no hub can only be commanded and controlled one by one which is time consuming and not efficient at all .
This smart speaker has the hub built-in.Smart devices in a home can all be controlled using this speaker.The user just have to connect with all the smart devices by asking Alexa to discover all the devices which can be connected together.This speaker takes care of the rest,it found the smart devices compatible with amazon voice assistance Alexa and also all the devices operating on zigbee
The amazon echo studio vs sonos one
Unlike the echo studio,the sonos one system is built with two speakers.They are both designed to drive the sound and adapt based on where they are placed .
On one hand,the sonos one speaker is used through the sonos application,it connects to most music streaming service and it is wireless. The user can’t connect another device to it, using a wire. In addition to that,sonos one doesn’t connect to Bluetooth devices .
The amazon studio speaker on the other hand,can connect to other Bluetooth devices,it also has an input port to connect to other devices .
For me,I like to hear the bass in a song, vibrating in my chest. The echo studio has got an incomparable bass sound quality. The sonos has got a nice bass too but its focus is more on the clear voice sound side .
Pros and cons
Here is what I like about the Echo studio (Pros) :
– The fact that it adapts to the dimensions of the room and based on where it is placed
-The hub built-in the speaker is actually cool, there is then no immediate need to buy a smart hub to control other devices in a smart home when this speaker is in the house .
-Its sound is not only good for music but for movie lovers as well . It has Dolby digital 5.1 and Dolby digital sound quality .
-It has a button which can be pressed to stop the speaker from listening to conversions. Most smart speakers listen to everything and record all conversations . This speaker is good for keeping privacy .
-The bass of this speaker is amazing !
The few things I don’t like about this speaker (cons) :
– Other than the sound qualities cited above,the device has more quality sound which are not available in some countries .
-Like all the smart devices,this speaker works better when there are no interference to the wireless connection . It needs a good connection ( WiFi or Bluetooth) .
-Even if it the voice sounds come out good, It is more bass and instrumental focused
-Its sound adapts better, when it is placed in the center of a room or just in the center of a house .
-For those who like to hear the sound of a speaker coming from one place,this speaker works with sound reflecting.Its sound comes from everywhere,it fills the whole space .
In closing,my opinion on the Alexa echo studio speaker is that it ranks pretty good compared to other speakers in its category and size . This speaker has one the best bass sound on the market,its bass is more powerful and clean.It definitely gives to the user more than the bulky old fashioned stereo systems which cost almost the same price, take too much room and use a lot of wiring.As we speak,the echo studio is being sold on Amazon for $259.99 Canadian dollars which is fair for the wonderful quality sound it delivers.
