Design

1.volume

1450.55cm³

Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.
A speaker driver is an individual transducer that converts electrical energy to sound waves. More drivers may result in better sound quality.
3.control panel placed on a device
Amazon Echo (3rd Gen)
There is a control panel on the device body, so you can easily access the volume control or remote without having to interact with a cable or another device it's connected to.
4.weather-sealed (splashproof)
Amazon Echo (3rd Gen)
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device. Bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.
6.has a neodymium magnet
Amazon Echo (3rd Gen)
Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.
When covered under the manufacturer’s warranty it is possible to get a replacement in the case of a malfunction.
Bigger subwoofers are capable of producing deeper bass sounds.
We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.

Sound quality

1.has stereo speakers
Amazon Echo (3rd Gen)
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
2.has a subwoofer
Amazon Echo (3rd Gen)
Devices with a subwoofer have a higher quality, deeper bass.
3.Has a passive radiator
Amazon Echo (3rd Gen)
A passive radiator is a type of driver (speaker) that doesn't have a voice coil and a magnet. The sound vibrations produced by a passive radiator depend on its mass and the size of its enclosure. It is usually used in combination with a woofer to produce deep bass tones.
4.has a noise-canceling microphone
Amazon Echo (3rd Gen)
These microphones are designed to filter out background noise from the desired sound. Especially useful in noisy environments.
More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
6.has a magnetic shielding
Amazon Echo (3rd Gen)
A magnetic shielding limits the coupling of a magnetic field between two devices. The purpose is to prevent magnetic fields from interfering with electrical devices and avoid distortion (of TV, monitors, hard drives etc.).

7.supports Wi-Fi 4 (802.11n)
