Design

1.volume

6164.8cm³

9598.77cm³

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
Bose SoundTouch 20
Google Home Max
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.
The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device. Bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.
5.has a neodymium magnet
Bose SoundTouch 20
Google Home Max
Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.
6.has a detachable cable
Bose SoundTouch 20
Google Home Max
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
7.weight

3.18kg

5.3kg

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.

A remote control allows you to control the device remotely. The remote control can be included or optional.
