Apple has finally entered the smart speaker market with Apple HomePod. Reviewers keep praising its sound quality but criticize Siri. Although Apple HomePod can’t lock Alexa out of the gate, it’s at least a good news to Apple fans. Besides sound quality, water resistance is another feature you may concern.

Is Apple HomePod waterproof?

UE Boom 2 is IPX7 waterproof which means you can leave it submerged in a one-meter pool for 30 minutes and it’ll still work. Some of you may complain that we talk about intelligent speakers. Obviously, we never heard any advertisement promoting Google Home or Amazon Echo as a waterproof speaker. How about Apple HomePod? According to the Tech Specs on Apple official website, relative humidity of operating environment should be  5% to 90% noncondensing (the amount of water vapor present in air expressed as a percentage of the amount needed for saturation at the same temperature), which means it isn’t waterproof. And it’s better not to use Apple HomePod when you are taking shower.is-apple-homepod-waterproof-Homepod

Should I buy Apple HomePod?

No matter it’s waterproof or not, you won’t change your mind if you just want an Apple intelligent speaker. To be honest, although people are complaining about Siri’s closed system, its sound quality is really worth to be praised. The HomePod’s sound quality eclipses competitors like the Amazon Echo, Google Home, and Sonos One, according to the Wall Street Journal. When testing HomePod by listening to Tusk by Fleetwood Mac, reviewer Joanna Stern could distinguish the individual instruments like the drums, horns, and background vocals while walking through her kitchen. Google Home VS Alexa Sound Quality

Now there are two colors available, white and space gray. Only $349 to bring it back.
