Design

1.volume

9598.77cm³

9742.22cm³

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:5
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:5
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:5
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:5
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

4.15kg

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:5
A remote control allows you to control the device remotely. The remote control can be included or optional.
9.width

335.2mm

365mm

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