    GREAT SPEAKERS WITH SOFTWARE ISSUE

    Pros mentioned:
    Digital assistant, Sound quality, Speaker quality
    Cons mentioned:
    Bluetooth, Control with phone, Use with apple products

    I want to start out with saying I bought two of these speakers to pair for my entertainment system. There were cheaper options, but I like the ability to have google built in. Now here comes the review. The speakers sound great and look great in the way they are setup in my entertainment center. They are Bluetooth capable and their lies the problem. The speakers by themselves play great and have no issues (using Spotify). The issue is when you connect the speakers through audio cable or through bluetooth using you're phone, iPad or TV there is a notable lag in audio. The lag is software and google is aware of the issue according to multiple forums. When connected through bluetooth to your TV and you’re watching a movie the last thing you want to SEE is the words from actors before you HEAR them through the speakers. The sound is wonderful, but this lag is annoying considering 399.99 per unit. Just keep this in mind if buying for entertainment or a DJ or anything that will make a lag in audio a huge deal breaker.

    Bass, Digital assistant, For playing music

    The sound is simply stunning! Perfect Bass, treble, and mida. Don't even know what else to say other than that. You can get it setup and running in under 5 minutes. You can stream music from Spotify and Google (YouTube Music, YouTube, and Google Play Music). You can stream/cast from your phone or just tell Google what to play. You can also connect to it as a Bluetooth speaker for other music like iTunes and others if you want, but WiFi streaming (Spotify and Google) is definitely the best.

    My expectation of this product was set too high. It is not compatible with all bluetooth devices. It is huge and the sound is not as impressive as lead to believe. Price does not meet quality. It is an over priced ugly speaker

    Pros mentioned:
    Bass, Digital assistant, For playing music

    Sounds clear, bass is good and speaker microphones work well, although you may have to raise your voice from another room to get it to hear you(not yell). The information it provided when talking to it is super helpful. Can definitely be your outdoor speaker for a LARGE party. It's awesome. Google assistant is AWESOME with a huge selection of music playlists as well. It is expensive yes but far from overpriced

    Pros mentioned:
    Bass, Digital assistant, Sound quality

    I'll be honest. I was skeptical of this thing from the get-go, because it is expensive. But all of that skepticism went out the door when I started using it. First, the criticisms. The touch sensitive bar isn't fool-proof. It doesn't register correctly 100% of the time, and I found myself accidentally pausing when I was trying to adjust the volume. However, you have more options than just touching the speaker or talking to it. You can adjust the volume in the Google Home app. This is my go-to way to do so, and I encourage other people to explore the option as well. For better or worse, most people have their phones nearby almost all of the time. And that's it. That's the only criticism I have. The sound is incredible. I actually experienced this kind of revelation when it comes to speakers. I, like a lot of people, had mostly relied on small units to provide sound at social gatherings- like UE's Boom 2 and JBL's Pulse 3. Until now, I'd have told you that these speakers were great. But after listening to the Max for ten minutes, I realized that I was more at ease with the sound. Even the most raucous songs were suddenly enjoyable at ridiculously high volume. It begs the question of whether most people simply don't know what good sounds like. The bass is rich and fills the room at even low volumes without being overbearing and high notes remain crisp and clear without distortion. Google Assistant? Amazing. There's not much to say here that hasn't already been said. The best part, though, is the free year of YouTube Red. That's $120 worth of pretty much whatever you want to listen to, even if you turn your screen off and walk away. Start up a playlist and forget about it. No ads. Google Play Music included. Nuts. Using that credit allowed me to cancel my Apple Music subscription. $120 in my pocket.

    Bluetooth

    If you're wedded to the Google ecosystem, like voice controls and want a loud and reasonably high fidelity bluetooth speaker, this is a good choice. Pretty much flawless in a Google Home environment. Only real negative is the footprint - this is large for a bluetooth speaker. The audio quality is ok - great in the bluetooth world, bass heavy and not particularly impressive for the hifi market. I didn't find the adaptive EQ to add much in a challenging kitchen environment. It was much better in a stereo pair than as a single speaker.

    Digital assistant, For playing music, Sound quality

    I love music, I love speakers. Now I own a pair of Sonos Play 5’s as well as a pair of Apple Homepod’s. Now I’ve added a pair of the Google Home Max’s. So how do these sound? Excellent. I like how they adapt to their environment. I like how you can dial in the settings. These reproduce music in a most pleasing way. They do get loud but don’t sacrifice clarity while doing so. The bass is deep. Music is crisp and clear. I know people have their own preferences as to which crowd they prefer. Apple. Google. Sonos. And whatever environment you are in you can’t go wrong with any choice. These speakers are fantastic though and compete very well with the others. In my environment they get louder than the Homepods. Not quite as detailed as the Sonos Play 5’s. We are talking extremely close for all 3 though. Given the fact that they are $100 off really sweetens the deal. At that price and taking all factors into account, the Home Max to my ears is the winner. Overall sound Sonos. Sound and budget factors on sale, Google Home Max. The build quality of all 3 is very impressive.

    Use with tv

    Love these! I just wish I could use them as LCRs for my TV. There’s still a lag in sound that can’t be corrected by the TV (which usually assumes the video lags, not the audio). There are some threads on this but unclear when or if Google will release an update to solve this so we can use them as TV speakers. But using them as normal speakers (and multi room) is absolutely amazing.

    Excellent sound quality, owning since a month no complaints yet. Controlling this speaker is easy through Google assistant, Google home (in phone) & to play music from different apps, so simple to use and command, if you have a Google ecosystem. Also, I have placed this speaker in multiple places in the house and there is not much difference with sound quality at all. I have read the reviews in several sources. Although this is costly for $400, I managed to purchase for a lesser price during holiday season. Absolutely a best product to own.
