Design

1.volume

9598.77cm³

13637.54cm³

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
Google Home Max
Harman Kardon Citation 500
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)
Google Home Max
Harman Kardon Citation 500
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
Google Home Max
Harman Kardon Citation 500
Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.
7.has a detachable cable
Google Home Max
Harman Kardon Citation 500
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
8.weight

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.

Harman Kardon Citation 500
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.
3.has a noise-canceling microphone
Google Home Max
Harman Kardon Citation 500
