It sounds great!...Amazing sound....For a Bluetooth speaker the sound is very nice and clear even at a very high volume....No sub but bass is still solid and very clean Volume rarely needs to be played at max.

Sync the speaker to your phone to listen to music or complete calls with the built-in noise-cancelling speakerphone. This Braven portable Bluetooth speaker uses a 8800 mAh battery bank for up to 10 hours of play time, so you can listen all day.
While I love the Google Home I've a hard time understanding it sometimes because the speaker is so bass heavy....The LF-S50G is more of a flat sound which sounds a lot better when listening to speech....So news, weather, and such comes out clean and audible anywhere in the room....Once the "Hey, Google" is registered the LF-S50G hears me a little better.

The omnidirectional audio lets you fill the room with powerful sound, and the touch-free gesture control lets you adjust volume and play or pause audio with a wave of your hand.

The Home has it beat in the Beat department....Subjectively better than Google Home...Music with some decent bass from a tiny speaker - the Google Home (plus it's cheaper)....While I love the Google Home I've a hard time understanding it sometimes because the speaker is so bass heavy.

Great fun...Great toy!...LOL So anyway...I have been trashing this device...The Tap...because it does not have the always on feature and that is one of the things I like most about the Echo....Naturally they favor interaction with services they sell, so others will need to build links to others, but the development environment seems to support a lot of innovation already....got it on Black Friday sale.

Fun Toy...Fun Fun...At the end of the day, it's a fun device to have that provides some useful "skills" (ordering Dominos is cool, but I've only done it once) and games (I like Jeopardy) but it's true usefulness is its ability to be the voice hub for your smart home, if you're interested in having one......I bought a second one after learning that the Echo Dot can pair via Bluetooth with my laptop and relay the audio to the connected stereo in my home office (I don't believe they advertise this function, but it works well and connects automatically when I wake my computer)....This was a great value on black Friday.

Control most electric devices through voice activation, or schedule a ride with Uber and order a pizza.

It's ok...so cool...it work great, understand all command, very easily configured to my nest thermostat, control temperature using voice commands, also connect to my iphone and Bose Soundlink system, play my music on my iphone, also connect to Amazon prime and play all sorts of music, since it to connected my Bose system using Bluetooth I enjoy the music very much....It's everything that the Echo can do with a much smaller form factor and with speakers that are more than adequate for music (unless you're too picky about sound, then just connect a bluetooth speaker.) So happy, I bought another for my wife who has already set it up to turn on the coffeemaker in the a.m....I could not pass on a great Black Friday deal.

5 stars!...Its fun...We hooked it up to a wemo switch so our 4 year old can turn on her light, we will sit around the table asking Alexa to play obscure songs, but the best is when we check the weather and our 4yo goes"hey that is what mine (dot) said down stairs"....I got this after returning google home, because I had multiple bedrooms and I wanted a platform to connect them together, you would had to buy multiple google home which is expensive solution, however with echo you can combine it with alexa dot -which is a lot cheaper- in the rooms that you don't need large speakers and keep echo in the living room or so....This black Friday (2016) I purchased another Echo and a few Echo Dots (Dots are a great price) and I could't be more happy.
Echo connects to the Alexa Voice Service to control smart home devices, play music, provide information, news, sports scores, weather, and more-instantly. All you have to do is ask.
Not bad...Is good...I can control my lights and thermostat with a simple "Goodnight," or "Good Morning" while laying in bed- and since i've been getting up early lately, I can remain in my cozy bed in the evening and say softly "Hey Google, wake me up at 5:45 please," to be woken up right on time the next morning by the pleasant chimes of the Home's alarm....The Google Home is a speaker that right now has fairly limited functionality (you can ask it weather, traffic and trivia related questions) but hopefully they'll continue to improve it in the future so it can do things like act like a speakerphone for your iphone, send emails with voice commands etc...I purchased this on Black Friday so the price was $99 and well worth that spend.

Worth it...good buy...Went in to get another Bose sound dock for my new house and it must have been my lucky day because one of the Magnolia Home Theater guys stepped out to help me when I was looking at these other 2 speakers that had and open box sticker on them and he said well if you're going to spend that on two you could just one of these Sonos Play:5's and be WAY better off...then I found the white one was open box so it was a even better deal....This speaker was an addition to another Play 1 that I have, and it has changed my perspective on what Witeless system should be, the sound it crisp and clear, with a decent about of bass neither of which distort at higher volumes...it's a truly amazing speaker system, I will be adding more soon....I purchased both during the Black Friday sale so I didn't have time to talk to anyone at Best Buy as I wanted to be in and out.
