Price comparison

Design

1.drivers count

1

A speaker driver is an individual transducer that converts electrical energy to sound waves. More drivers may result in better sound quality.
2.volume

403.37cm³

Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.
3.driver unit size

40mm

The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device. Bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.
4.weather-sealed (splashproof)
Google Home Mini
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
5.has a neodymium magnet
Google Home Mini
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.weight

173g

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.

These microphones are designed to filter out background noise from the desired sound. Especially useful in noisy environments.
4.number of microphones

2

More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
5.has a magnetic shielding
Google Home Mini
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.).
