Design

1.volume

9598.77cm³

5660.16cm³

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
Sonos Play:3
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
Sonos Play:3
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
5.has a neodymium magnet
Google Home Max
Sonos Play:3
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
Google Home Max
Sonos Play:3
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
7.weight

5.3kg

2.6kg

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.
8.Has a remote control
Google Home Max
Sonos Play:3
A remote control allows you to control the device remotely. The remote control can be included or optional.
9.width

335.2mm

132mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.

Sound quality

1.has stereo speakers
Google Home Max
Sonos Play:3
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 passive radiator
Google Home Max
Sonos Play:3
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
Sonos Play:3
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.
5.has a magnetic shielding
Google Home Max
Sonos Play:3
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.).

Connectivity

1.has an AUX input
Google Home Max
Sonos Play:3
An auxiliary input allows you to play other audio sources by connecting them through a simple audio connection like a 3.5mm jack, i.e for MP3 or portable DVD/CD player.
2.supports Wi-Fi
Google Home Max
Sonos Play:3
The device can connect to Wi-Fi.
3.has a socket for a 3.5 mm audio jack
Google Home Max
Sonos Play:3

4.Has USB Type-C
Google Home Max
Sonos Play:3
The USB Type-C features reversible plug orientation and cable direction.
5.supports Wi-Fi 4 (802.11n)
Google Home Max
Sonos Play:3
Wi-Fi 4 (802.11n) is a wireless standard released in 2009. It has faster transfer rates and improved security compared to its predecessors – a, b, and g.
6.supports Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac)
Google Home Max
Sonos Play:3
802.11ac wireless works on the 5GHz frequency range. It offers higher transfer rates, improved reliability, and improved power consumption. It provides advantages for gaming and HD video streaming.
7.has an external memory slot
Google Home Max
Sonos Play:3
The device has a standard memory slot (such as an SD or micro SD card slot) that enables you to extend the built-in internal storage with affordable memory modules, or easily retrieve data, such as photographs, from the memory card.

4.has a mute function
Google Home Max
Sonos Play:3
The device has an option to mute/unmute a conversation directly from the device.
