    Excellent… Very Excellent

    Bought this as part of a bundle during a sale for $50. After getting it and listening to it for a bit I had to pick up a few more. They really deliver on the sound given the size.The built in Zigbee hub as well as the temperature sensor is a nice have. The ultrasonic sensor can control things, though it has a long delay (~30 minutes) between triggers, so it doesn’t respond quickly to people leaving the room.But that isn’t enough to even knock off a point. I have no problem recommending these speakers to people.

    Potencia y sonido superior

    Les puedo decir que estoy super feliz con mi compra. Aproveche los especiales de Amazon para adquirir 2 que me salieron exactamente a 50 dolares cada una y las pude pagar en 5 comodos pagos sin intereses.Me he enamorado de su sonido. Ya solo me falta para la coleccion la Echo Studio y posiblemente la Echo Sub. En un futuro comprare 2 Echo 4ta Gen mas para completar mi setup en la habitacion. Por ahora las escucho en un grupo llamado COCINA, donde suenan las 2 Echos 4ta Gen y mi adorado Echo Dot 3ra Gen y estoy ENAMORADO de como suenan en conjunto. Una pasada.Les digo si que a veces es un poco engorroso que se conecten todas a la vez, pero luego de conectarse varias veces parece que aprende y lo hace ahora a la primera orden.Estan muy bien logradas estas Echo. Recomendadas.

    Best smart speaker available today (comparison)

    I have had homepod mini, the original homepod, and most of the Echo first party devices, including echo studio. The echo 4th gen is definitely the best of all of these. I have even owned the bose portable, some really expensive Sony speakers. For the size and sound quality and reliable and fast voice recognition, these can’t be beat.Issues with the homepods:The homepod had great sound quality, but it was big and you still dont get the stereo separation effect you can get with two speakers one on each side of the room, and after a firmware update the speaker developed a weird and terrible sounding issue and I had to throw it away. Apple discontinued it so I couldn’t buy a replacement. The homepod minis used to be good, in fact better sound quality than probably the echo dot 5th gen (I didn’t test it personally, just heard the sound in a review). However they started becoming unreliable as well, one would cut out midsong or there would be a weird echoing effect and the voice recognition was always slower than an echo device. And sometimes siri wouldn’t recognize at all, or she would say ‘something went wrong, this is taking longer than I expected’…. a lot.So switching over to two Echo 4th gens, in a stereo pair, was really great because the voice recognition is faster and she usually understands what I say and play it. I could say the same request to both and Siri wouldn’t get it while Alexa would.However there was a major issue, at first they wouldn’t pair in a sound pair. I had to web search and find out that what you have to do is plug in one speaker only, say ‘alexa check for updates’ and then wait until that speaker updates, then unplug it, do that for the second speaker, unplug it when done, then update the alexa app on your phone, then plug everything back in and try to pair them again in the app. That worked for me. Amazon really dropped the ball on this, and I had to remove a star, you shouldn’t get a product that has a basic feature like the speakers working in a stereo pair that requires a bunch of googling to solve. I can imagine the frustration if you buy two and then they don’t work in a stereo pair and your googling skills aren’t good enough. Another knock on Alexa compared to Siri in general, is that lately Alexa has been spamming me asking me if I want stuff. Siri never does that. Alexa will say things like ‘by the way (advertisement, would you like to try it/buy it?) However as far as I know there is no reliable Apple smart speaker that exists so this is your best option. Note that I didnt try the google products because I gave up on google made products, they all seem to break (chromebook, pixel 6, google wifi, etc. and then google always makes some excuse why they wont fix it- so not only do their products break but they also won’t fix them- I gave up on them)

    This is probably the best thing I bought on a whim

    We had been using an echo dot for several years and found it to be not only educational but entertaining for the grands with knock knock jokes etc. When the volume became inconsistent, I figured it was time for a replacement. After reading the reviews, I selected this Echo. I love it. The sound quality is phenominal; probably equivalent to Bose. Buy one for yourself, youll be glad you did

    Low profile better quality sound

    I love the fact that I was able to get this in a lighter color. I was sick of the black tower. The lower profile Alexa hub made the space less cluttered and the sound quality is amazing. The wake word is much faster to respond than the older models and that is a huge plus.

    I am so happy to buy this product that I can’t say anything bad . because the sound quality is excellent and contrary to appearance it has a very good bass and I am Iranian and it helps a lot in translating words and my suggestion is about Alexa home applications because Siri doesn’t have Farsi translation.

    Great as Individual Speakers – Multi Room Just Doesn’t Work

    I have fully automated, high tech and super luxurious AirBNB that I call the Cliffwood Experience in Houston Texas and it is a resort style vibe and we have hosted many famous and demanding clients. I wanted the best multi room speaker system I could get to complete the experience for my demanding clients. I had owned a few Alexas dating back to the original and they always worked great, but not so much for this application…THE SETUP:I purchased a mixture of Alexa Echos (4th Gen), Studio Alexas distributed over 10 rooms in this 3400 Sq Ft home. All rooms are setup in a stereo pair, and 3 of the rooms also have Alexa Subs and 5 rooms have Amazon Fire TV 65″ Omni Series and those rooms are setup in Home Theater mode.My internet is Xfinity is rock solid and fast at 1,000 Mbps down and 120 Mbps up.The wireless access points were Eero which the Amazon site says “Works W Alexa” but it doesn’t allow you to force all devices onto the same speed, which support says is required for muilti room sound to work properly. So I ripped out the Eero, and installed the $1,500 NETGEAR Orbi Quad-Band WiFi 6E Mesh System (RBKE963), Router with 2 Satellite Extender which I purchased on Amazon.com. This system is on of the most highly rated by noted reviewers like PC Magazine and Toms Hardware Guide.I am using a paid Spotify account as well as the Amazon Music Family Plan. The default is the Amazon Music Family Plan account.THE GOOD:The Home Theater pairs work flawlessly, and its a simple and affordable way to have an easy to use home theater and the voice control is a huge plus. These are especially nice when you add a sub.The Alexa Echo (4th Gen) speakers are very impressive for the size and the Studio Alexas sound downright amazing, especially when paired w a subwoofer which all 3 rooms w Studio Alexas are.Its cool being able to play different streams in different rooms, which became possible when I changed to the Amazon Family play. The standard plan only allowed one stream at a time and it often would refuse to play at all stating that music was already active in another stream even though it wasn’t.This is a very simple and economical way to add theaters, stereo pairs and multi room to your house.The Alexas work great for controlling lighting, HVAC, and other devices.THE BAD:The multiroom music is a disaster, my “Everywhere” group that includes all rooms, wont work at all. It starts playing the chokes out a few notes before giving up.My “Central Speakers” group which includes 5 of the Rooms works intermittently. Sometimes it will play for seconds, sometimes minutes, but it always stops. More often than not it crashes after a few minutes.I am also required to say “play music on central speakers” because the feature that allows you to always make a speaker or speaker group play in a room or group of rooms crashes each time I attempt to change it.I have replaced the Orbi wireless system which was the best I could find, and this allowed me to force the same speed for all of the Alexas and TVs and Subs. Tried forcing all devices to 2.4, which made it worse, but forcing them all onto 5Ghz was a definite improvement. With 3 wireless access points I have very strong coverage throughout the house so the shorter range of 5Ghz is a non issue.I have spent countless hours on the phone w Amazon support and they always do the same things. Update the firmware, delete and rebuild the speaker pairs, delete and rebuild the groups. Unplug all the alexas, TVs & subs for 30 seconds. I finally put all the network gear, Xfinity router and wireless access points on a battery backup so I could just kill power to everything by shutting off the main breaker to the home and not waste time running all over the house unplugging 30 devices.SUMMARYIn short, if you want a simple home theater, stereo pair or even a single Alexa to listen to music, or control lighting and other smart devices in a single room these are great.But if you have a large home and need a multiroom solution, you should look elsewhere. Amazon Alexa solution simply doesn’t work for this application.

    WHITE POWER CORD

    This 4th Generation replaced my 1st Generation Echo. The sound is upgraded from the1st generation and still offers all of the other skills. My biggest gripe is the “power cord”I purchased the wall mount for many reasons, just like my 1st Generation Echo for sound, ease ofoperation & no accidental falling from a stand (cats). The cord is white – my Echo is charcoaland its short – too short to be able to place it at eye level using the wall mount. The cord just pops out. Looks absolutely stupid. Why white??? So it has made me spend money to get a black adaptor cord that is long enough to properly use the wall mount at the correct height & look aesthetically with the charcoal Echo & wall mount. Good call Amazon!!! Cha Ching $$$$$$

    Don’t let the five stars fool you !

    The Echo (4th Gen) is a powerful smart home hub that offers premium sound and Alexa capabilities. While this device is an excellent addition to any home, one downside is that it has a limit on the number of speakers that can be added to create a home theater setup.Unfortunately, the Alexa app only allows you to add up to two speakers to your home theater system when using the Echo (4th Gen) as the hub. This limitation can be frustrating for those who want to create a more immersive audio experience, as it prevents them from adding additional speakers to enhance the sound quality of their home theater setup.It’s important to note that this limitation is not unique to the Echo (4th Gen) and is a limitation of the Alexa app in general. However, it’s still disappointing for those who were hoping to create a more robust home theater setup with the Echo (4th Gen) as the hub.Despite this limitation, the Echo (4th Gen) is still a great device that offers excellent sound quality and a variety of useful features. Its smart home hub capabilities make it easy to control various devices in your home, and its built-in Alexa functionality provides a hands-free way to access music, news, and other features.Overall, while the limitation on the number of speakers that can be added to a home theater setup may be a drawback for some, the Echo (4th Gen) remains a powerful and useful device that offers a lot of value for its price

    Great sound (for the size and price), good voice recognition when located correctly.

    I’m fairly new to the Alexa universe, and the 4th generation Echo is my first such device. My first impressions are that the sound quality (for the price and size of the device) is excellent. There is copious quantities of base. The highs are also quite good provided you place the speaker out in the open and are facing the front side of the device. The voice recognition is almost flawless if the room is quiet. However I found that Alex has some issues hearing me correctly whenever I was playing music, listening to the TV, or when my Roomba was banging around the house. I think it’s reasonable that situations like this can cause Alexa to either not hear you, or misinterpret what you said…. and I can accept that.My Echo’s are connected to my 5GHz wifi network and are located all within 30 ft of my router. I’ve never had any issues with the wifi connection. A couple of times in the past 3 months the Alexa service has gone down, which can be a real issue. Luckily, “most” of my smart devices (Kasa and Feit) could all be controlled through their native apps. Fortunately for me, Alexa was only down for a couple of hours, and then all was good. The bad part was that my mother-in-law, who is in a wheelchair, uses Alexa to control the lights, ceiling fan, and TV in her apartment. The lesson here is that if you have a technically challenged person who relies of Alex, just realize that there will be times when Alex lets you down… and you’ll need to have a backup plan to get buy until the service comes back online.Regarding integration with other manufacturer’s devices is hit and miss, depending on how main stream (widely used) their products are. I had no issues getting 5 Kasa smart plugs (for air cleaners and dehumidifier), 4 Kasa smart dimmers (for lights), 3 Kasa smart switches (for ceiling fans), and about 20 Feit smart bulbs, all connected and integrated into Alexa. Personally, before choosing a brand of smart product, go onto the Android/Apple app store (as appropriate for you), and check out the “Start” rating for that manufacturer’s app. If it has a poor rating, it might be a good idea to choose a different manufacturer. The 4th generation Echo has a built in temperature sensor, which lets you create “routines” that can be triggered by the room temperature. The Echo can also listen for sounds like “glass breaking”, and “smoke/CO alarms”. If the Echo hears these sounds, you can get a notification on the phone app. Awesome feature, and it’s free. There are more advanced security/safety features, but those have a monthly fee.It’s hard to review just the Echo, when in fact it’s impossible to separate it from the Alex service. As a piece of “hardware”, what you get in such a small package is impressive (5 stars). The other half of the rating is how well Alex integrates with your smart devices, and how well you use the capabilities within the Alex app to configure your Echo device. One of the most important functions is the ability to create “routines”. A routine is a set of commands that get performed, when the trigger phrase is spoken.I’ll say that the capabilities available with routines is mind blowing. Many people might be intimidated trying to set them up. If you are not tech savvy, you might need to find someone who is to help you out. I’ve got a computer engineering degree, and it was fairly intuitive for me, but I’m an extreme example…

    Incredible sound. Incredible bass. Can’t get Spotify to work with “Everywhere” group 🙁

    No se pudo cargar el archivo multimedia.

     I cannot get this device to play Spotify with 4 echo dots (3rd generation) that I have scattered throughout the house. I was really hoping I could say, “Alexa, play music everywhere” or “Alexa, play music on my Everywhere group” or “Alexa, play spotify everywhere.” But, nope. When I say all that, Alex answers, “Sure, here’s spotify on the everywhere group”, but then nothing plays anywhere from any speaker. I almost returned this, but then out of curiosity I tried it with Amazon music. If I say “play amazon everywhere,” all the speakers play music from Amazon. I can’t figure it out.That being said, if I had not ordered this, I would have missed out. This is the most incredible, little speaker I’ve ever heard. I can’t believe this little 3 inch woofer has so much bass. It does a good job filling my 3 room “abode” with sound. I almost don’t need that 3rd echo dot in my bathroom. I can hear the music from my living room with this bigger Echo.I have not tested the In/Out jack yet. I was surprised to see it is referred to as both In and Out. If that’s so, and it will work, I’m going to end up ordering another one and connect these things to my TV with a 3.5 aux splitter cable! This speaker sounds better than my $125 soundbar.

    A Powerful Echo – Great for first-time Echo users, unimpressive for those upgrading.

    QUICK SUMMARY:—————————The 4th generation Amazon Echo brings welcome upgrades from previous generations. The device features a Zigbee smart hub, improved sound reproduction, and a temperature sensor. Alexa integration works as expected. I would recommend the 4th gen Echo to those who are in the market for their first Alexa device and who listen to music often at a casual level. I would not recommend this as an upgrade for those with previous generation Echo devices if they are functioning normally, or for those expecting a high-end audiophile experience.PREFACE:—————————I have owned the 4th generation Amazon Echo for 9 months and use it daily. I upgraded from a 1st generation Amazon Echo. As part of a Prime Echo trade-in promotion, I was able to purchase this for $25 off the $99 MSRP.Tasks I utilize Echo for:—————————• (Daily) – Adjusting power/brightness/color of 2 connected LIFX smart bulbs• (Daily) – Retrieving daily weather forecast information• (Daily) – Retrieving temperature of the room the Echo is in (room is hotter than the rest of the house)• (Weekly/Monthly) – Engaging with various media/games (Pandora, Amazon Music, Question of the Day, Jeopardy, etc.)• (Weekly/Monthly) – General search query for basic information/knowledgeEnvironment:—————————The Echo is 3 feet away from where I sit. It’s placed on a table in the corner of a 10×10 room, about 2 inches in front of a (silent) PC tower. It’s on a flat, level surface, and is within line-of-sight with no obstacles or materials between myself and it that would hamper its ability to hear me. On the opposite side of the room is a small air purifier at floor level that is always on and set to its lowest setting (40 dB of white noise).PROS:—————————• Sound Reproduction: The upward-firing 3” woofer and two, forward-firing 0.8” tweeters push out more sound than expected for a device of this size and price. Bass is surprisingly powerful, covers a lower frequency range than expected (it won’t rattle the room like a dedicated subwoofer, however), and is capable of filling small rooms with ease. Treble is clear and crisp without distortion. Mids are pronounced and dynamic, but can be overpowered if bass and treble are simultaneously working hard. Dialogue from movies, videos, and podcasts is clear and feels well-balanced. Casual audio tinkerers will be pleased with additional EQ settings in the Amazon Alexa smartphone app, although audio sounds excellent as-is and adjustments are likely not necessary unless specific listening needs require adjustments.• Temperature Sensor: This is an odd bonus to me, but a welcome one that I use often. It is self-calibrating, and routines can make use of its readings.• Line In/Out Audio Jack: There is a 3.5mm jack on the bottom of the device next to the power adapter port which can be toggled to send audio out to another device if you wish to use the Echo with external speakers, or to accept audio if you wish play audio from another device using the Echo’s speakers.• Build Quality: It feels sturdy and has heft but isn’t burdensome. The fabric mesh that covers the top-half of the sphere is a nice color, the buttons are pleasantly tactile but quiet, and the circular grip on the bottom ensure it won’t slide around while playing music or if gently bumped.NEUTRALS:—————————• Response Time: Marketing for this Echo focused heavily on the all-new AZ1 Neural Edge processor at the time of purchase, bragging of faster, smoother, and more natural Alexa voice interaction performance and processing times. The marketing was heavy, and over-emphasized what is an unnoticeable difference; there is, at best, perhaps fractions of a second saved compared to the 1st gen Echo, but it’s case-by-case. In most cases, the processing time is the same.• Alexa Features/Performance: Largely unchanged compared to previous generations due to Alexa being a multi-device AI ecosystem rather than a single, device-specific feature. It does what you expect of Alexa.CONS:—————————• Voice Recognition: Bad. The environment outlined above is how I’ve used this Echo since I purchased it. The previous, 1st generation Echo had no issue with white noise, background noise, etc. This 4th generation Echo struggles to pick up my voice if there is any level of white noise, or if I’m speaking to it from more than a few feet away. 90 – 95% of voice interactions require that I repeat myself with increasing volume (sometimes two, three, four or more times) for it to register what I’m saying correctly, if I’m heard at all. Voice commands are constantly misinterpreted (verified by reviewing the history in the app), and wake words are often missed. Voice recognition performance is so poor, I have considered replacing this device altogether with one from a different ecosystem. I shouldn’t need to be just beneath shouting volume to be heard, and I shouldn’t feel constantly inconvenienced by using voice commands versus smartphone apps to control smart home features.• Temperature Sensor Rate of Refresh: I have found no documentation or answers about how often the temperature sensor is refreshed. However, it often seems like the readings are delayed and take a long time to change, even when there is a noticeable increase/decrease in air temperature as a result of thermostat changes.

    ¡Su sonido es increíble!

    La instalación es muy fácil y su sonido es increíble, anteriormente había comprado el Echo dot 4ta generación y a pesar que no puedo crear un sistema estéreo entre ambos dispositivos, si puedo crear un grupo o habitación para que reproduzca el sonido en ambos dispositivos al mismo tiempo.Recomendado.

    Might not be worth it

    I have an echo studio that has better sound but more expensive. I have a small echo dot that sounds pretty good for the size and is less expensive. I feel if you bought this on sale you might be sorta happy. It is faster to respond to commands.

    This one works perfect

    I bought a refurbished Echo Dot for $40. Whatever they did to refurbish, it was a waste of time. So I ended up having to spend some money and get one that’s actually brand new. And this one works as advertised. Just a thought, but when you go to buy something refurbished thinking that it will work as stated there’s a 50-50 chance that it won’t. Better to spend the money and get something that actually works as stated.

    Review from a stutterer…

    I have a severe stutter, delay, cluster and some times sound doesn’t come out of my mouth. I bought this device after reading it has adaptive learning and because I was sick of my echo dot stuttering back at me every day of my life (yeah, true story)…I’ve had this device for about a week now and even when I’m not fluent when giving a command, my device still does what I ask and it does not stutter back at me.Also, the sound is incredible when playing songs from Amazon music.

    Microphone placement seems to be lacking.

    I think I like the old cylinder style better, technically takes up smaller footprint on countertop and don’t know if it’s because of the extra height or’s microphone placement but it seems to have heard me much better than this round ball style. Maybe I just got one a little towards the lemon side. It sits in the same exact spot my old cylinder style echo used to be but 70% of the time I have to repeat myself three times with my voice volume going up each time before it recognizes my voice. Once again it could be placement which is next to a couch arm and a wall, But my old cylinder style echo heard me 80% of the time instead of just 30% of the time like this unit. Nicely designed looks good integrated into my Alexa system basically easy when changing over. Except blink cameras, it randomly overtime would show up a different blink camera as new device discovered. I would have to say my favorite part is it doesn’t fall over like the cylinder when the cats rubs up against it. All in all the sound is decent or good enough for me, I am no audio file nut and listen to very little music, device looks good, and eventually does what I request of it. I do find all echo devices do have their strange quirks, which I don’t understand because I would think they all work off the same cloud and would use the same exact commands; that does not seem to be the situation at least not in my experience. Had an echo show five that I just traded in that constantly I needed to use different commands than any of my other devices. And this new echo device (4thGEN) for some reason decided that it will not work with my living room light unless I specify in the command “living room light”even though the light is in Alex App as just living room and the old tower echo device used to accept just the word “living room off/on”, took me a while to figure out what was going on and why the device was telling me “living room does not support this command”. Also constantly have problems with the play and pause fire TV command, after pausing when I use the play command it tends to change the TV into a search mode. I find it just easier to manually play and pause. And the occasional changing of commands overtime is also quite annoying. Certain commands I used for months/years and suddenly one day they would not work and I had to figure out what the new command was, this is extremely annoying. Please stop doing this Amazon leave well enough alone.

    Best Echo

    I’m very pleased with the 4th Generation Echo its response time is much quicker than the 2nd Generation that I own. If your thinking about getting one yourself you won’t be disappointed.

    nice speaker

    nice and easy speaker, do not expect the biggest sound, but is ok, Amazon need to do a type of configuration in order to reduce the sensibility of the voice recognition, because I have another echo 8 like a 6 or 7 meter at the kitchen, and everytime we call any booth,, booth listen at the same time, will be great to reduce and increase the sensibility of the devices

    Having owned all previous versions of echo devices with hubs…

    we have a home full of alexa enabled devices and have for a few years. getting the first version with a hub as opposed to the others was the single best thing we did to improve our overall experience with. so when the newest came out with increased range i wanted to give it a try.the most important benefit of echo units with hubs is the ease of adding new alexa enabled devices. instead of having to sort of setup steps which vary wildly between devices, with hubs like this has all you need to do is say, “alexa find new devices.”the second reason we specifically went with this newest echo with a hub has increased range over its predecessors. bluetooth low Eeergy (BLE) which helps extend the range of low-bandwidth devices. this was something i wanted to try in hopes of improving the feed from the many cams we have enabled around and inside our place. before we had this installed two of our outside wyze cams furthest from the house were unreliable for viewing, after rarely ever an issue.last the sound is noticeably improved over all previous iterations. the 3” woofer and pair of tweeters work better than expected. it is the first time i have been able to notice any sound improvement since the introduction of the first version echo. you can actually listen to music and have it sound decent(at low to mid volumes) where before it wasn’t all that good. nice too that they still include the 3.5mm audio out jack!the only two minor gripes i have with the device comes down to shape and microphones. the shape, design being totally changed into a round ball means that many of places we’d typically put a larger echo just don’t work with this form factor. it comes down to the additional width not height but a minor detail for us.the other minor ding has to do with microphone sensitivity. when i first noticed that the mic’s seemed to be less effective than our others i went to test it out. in a quiet room with the previous generation sitting next to the newest. i changed the ‘wake’ word on the one to ‘computer’ so only one would react to my command. i spoke from the same spot, same voice volume, same words and confirmed my suspicions. this newest version does not hear quite so well as the others. it isn’t a big difference but enough for me to notice another words when i have to repeat the same thing twice but louder the 2nd go round. it might be due to the new design and positioning of the mic’s? that said not a reason to shy away from this device imho.i think overall the improvements with range and sound are good enough reasons to pick up this newest version of the echo. while it isn’t perfect it is all things considered better than those that have come before. i would recommend this to those looking for a first time echo hub or even those like myself who already had hubs but needed a bit more from them.

    Improvement over our old Echo

    So far the sound of this Echo 4th gen is much better than our old Alexa unit. That got moved to another room and this one has taken over the living room. The volume and mute buttons are much easier to see and use.

    Nice but microphone seems not as good as my older Alexa devices

    I am happy with this overall but it seems the microphone is not as good quality as my older Alexa devices (Dots and Spots :-). It often does not understand me and when I then instead ask another Alexa device (they have different names), the other one does understand me even though it is farther away in an adjacent room. My other devices are older so I’m thinking Amazon has cheaped out on the microphone components. With this one I have to speak louder and pause between words and pronounce more carefully, so it takes more effort to use it. But I am happy with the sound. I got it to play music in the kitchen and it works well for that.

    Surprisingly Big Improvement Over My 3rd Gen Echo

    I really have enjoyed both my second and third generation Echos and bought this one for its change of shape and it was on sale plus 5 payment option.First off the bad. If you’re used to room enveloping sound with no sense of stereo this one will disappoint. Dual tweeters firing forward give it a true sense of direction so sticking it in a corner and have it fill the room will not be as satisfying. You’ll notice where it’s located more, especially if there’s anything blocking your direct line of sight ( hearing ) . Where I keep mine only needed a slight shift to make it not be partially blocked by my sofa . Volume was still plenty loud in its old spot but it just didn’t sound right. Easily solved but might not be that easy for others and some might actually prefer the directional sound more.The bass can be a bit boomy though while listening to YYZ live in Rio the bass drum didn’t sound bad at all and overall everything was satisfactory though slightly lacking in the mid highs. The eq settings in the Alexa app are set to flat on all 3 choices .It’s wider at the base than the previous generations by a lot. This could be a problem for some .Star Trek Self Destruct Skill doesn’t work on this one or my 4th gen Dot but does fine on my previous generation ones for some reason . Instead of blowing up my den it searches for “zero zero zero” movies on my Fire Stick. I’m sure that won’t last long though .Enough about the bad.The bass is no longer wannabe but real. No longer does it struggle with everything below mid level voices but as I wrote above , bass drums actually sound like bass drums and Ends of the Earth by Lord Huron excels at all of the music ranges considering its size. Johnny Panic and the Bible of Dreams also sounded very nice across the sound spectrum . Music For Tables extreme from the high notes in the keyboard to the lows didn’t miss a thing whereas the cow bell was very slightly muddy but the wood blocks sounded right . Am I saying it’s as awesome as my studio headphones ? Not by any means but they took a huge step forward over the 3rd generation , which I was quite content with .Response time seems noticeably faster and more accurate than the gen 3 I use . Only once did Alexa not understand my query and that was while setting up a traffic check routine. All I had to do was rephrase a little and now Alexa tells me the commute traffic and fastest way to get to work 5 minutes before I have to leave . 95 is terrible for accidents and Maps tells Alexa the best alternative if there’s any.I think my favorite thing though is the new shape and I REALLY like the lights being on the bottom, especially once the lights go off .If you’re still smitten with your gen 3 Echo or don’t like the mini Death Star look of the new model skip this one as the performance improvements are readily apparent they’re not earth shattering. Amazon will have to do something mind blowing next year to get me to part with my dough ray me for a gen 5. The more I listen to Fourplay on Echo the more I’m liking it for the music , nevermind all the super cool stuff I can do on it or my Dots or my Flex .

    I upgraded to this model because I listen to music all the time. The quality is great and especially at the price I paid. Very happy with the sound quality and I liked that there were other options of colors.If you already have a echo dot, when you order this model- it will ask if you want to link it to your devices and internet. This was too easy!!!

    People can only have three pods?

    They don’t tell you how many pies you can have. Yeah, you can have as many as you want but they’re not gonna play the same channel on the same music on all of them unless you subscribe to Amazon Music which cost 1599 a month they don’t tell you that so I have three and I bought two more and I am refunding two of them because I want to music playing and all my house so I think the description of the Amazon pods need to be clear that you can only have three that play the same station and music the others are not going to play the music.

    HONEST REVIEW/COMPARISON FOR ALL INTELLIGENT LIFE FORMS.

    This is an honest review and comparison of the new 4th Generation Echo (not Dot) vs. the 2nd Generation Echo Plus (the last Echo Plus that was launched with the 3td Generation Echo).I actually purchased two 4th Gen Echoes to create a Home Theater Group with the FireTV Stick 4k latest variant. I’ll include notes about that as well.Sound Quality Pros: I really enjoy music from different genres and I like to tinker with equalizer settings so that I get the fullest sound out of even a cheap speaker. I also like when a speaker(s) can pull double duty as a surround sound system for my television as well. That’s what attracted me to the new Echoes.Regarding music streaming from Amazon Music HD, I must say the sound is really smooth and crisp. I adjusted the equalizer settings for the individual devices in the Alexa app to boost the mid most, followed closely by the treble and a moderate bass setting (if they are paired in a stereo pair or Home Theater, adjusting one device automatically adjusts the other). I have my Echoes placed about 12 feet away in front of my primary seating spot on the sofa and the are spaced about 8 feet apart flanking the television. They are situated about 4 feet off the ground on book shelves. This positioning has been perfect for the accoustics in my 15×18 living room with tall ceilings. The speakers really fill up the space. And I am most impressed with how the sound bounces off of the walls and truly feel as if it surrounds me and immerses my eardrums into it.This holds even more true for when I watch a movie with the Dolby Atmos setting on. I can hear the channels fairly well and it really seems like I own my own private movie theater in my living room. There’s been times that there’s a sound affect so specific to one channel and reproduced so clearly that I’ve actually muted the show thinking that I was hearing some noise from outside or in the hallway of my apartment building.These two devices together get pretty loud without any noticeable distortion. Now I haven’t played much bass heavy music but I do love action and sci-fi movies that are sound effect laden and peppered with bass booming explosions etc. The new 4th Gen Echoes keep up very nicely.In contrast, though I thought I really loved the Echo Plus 2nd Gen, I now find that I really can’t enjoy music or movies as much on it. I think that this is because the main speaker fires downward and the rest of the sound is omni directional. This sounds good on paper but in practice, at least for my uses, that type of speaker just seems muffled and really a waste of sound waves. Let me explain. How often to you place the Echo device in the center of a room to benefit from an omni-directional speaker? Most people don’t have floor outlets under their coffee tables so it sits on an end table or bookshelf. It’s usual home in a bedroom is on the end table. Even in a kitchen, unless placed on the island, the Echo rests with it’s back to a wall. So, why then, would you want (let’s say) 40% of the sound waves to be directed to a big slab with no ears to appreciate it?The directional sound setup of the new Echo 4th Gen is ideal, really, for it’s positioning in most homes. Sound is really diminished if you are behind it or immediately to it’s side but comes barrelling at your ear drums when you are any angle in front of it. It’s louder, more clear, and much more advanced when it comes to being able to utilize Dolby Atmos playback. I definitely choose the 4th gen over the 2nd Gen Plus any day. I almost feel bad for unloading the Plus onto my parents when I bought the 4th Gen. I’ll upgrade them this Christmas. Lol.The omni-directional speaker would be a benefit if it were placed in the center of a patio for a gathering or party, but again, where’s your outlets? Not in the middle of the concrete or deck floor. So chances are, even on the patio, it will be placed backing up to an exterior wall. So the myth of the omni-directional speaker advantage is busted in my book.Voice Recognition:At first, I felt there was a noticeable difference with the Plus having the upper hand when I comes to summoning Alexa. However, I believe there have been some fairly large software updates recently that included fine tuning adjustments to the mics on the 4th Gen devices. They now clearly pick up my questions or commands from across the room and quickly cancel out the other Echo Dot I have on the far side open floor plan nearest the kitchen. Before, with the Plus, it was a toss up as to which one would respond because I firmly believe the best mics are still on the Echo Dot 3rd Gen with clock variant. Hands down. If only the echo show 5 in my bedroom would be even half as good, I’d be happy ( that unit is by far the worst with just 2 lack luster mics vs the 4 on the Dot and Plus).Alexa is also quicker to respond on the 4th Gen too. Now that’s a combination of the 450-ish gbps internet speed I am fortunate enough to have but I understand it’s also due to a better processor and improved software.And let me just say one thing… I don’t know anyone who buys their smart home devices with Zigbee compatibility being the #1 consideration. Who cares? I have bought the best reviewed for the price smart bulbs, TV, and plugs etc not giving a thought to Zigbee because the latest generation smart devices don’t require a hub.All of my smart home devices work just fine by enabling the skill on the Alexa app with that of the manufacturer’s chosen app and linking the accounts. The biggest issue I have is trying to remember what I named each lamp and group to turn on and off the lights. First world problems, I know.For what it’s worth, the big 3 smart home apps which seems to be used by these el cheapo devices are Kasa, Govee, and Smart Life. I have devices on all three and the Alexa integration is seemless. Except the darn ceiling fan speed control. Still haven’t completely figured that one out entirely.Setting up the devices and Grouping:Both the Echo Plus and 4th Gens are very easy to set up initially. The Alexa app, though not entirely user friendly regarding the UI, does all the work and guides you through the process fairly quickly. The oddball thing that’s a bit more challenging is knowing what the difference is between a stereo pair, a home theater and a speaker group.First, a stereo pair must be two identical models (I believe an Echo Sub woofer can be added as the one off) and the pairing is only for music streaming. Only one Echo will respond at a time when you are conversationally interacting with Alexa.In a Home Theater grouping, one or more Echo devices of the same model can be joined with a FireTV device such as the Stick 4k. A sub can also be added. The crummy part at first, is that you can’t include your existing sound bar into this Home Theater Group. Amazon devices only, folks. So you must choose which you want to listen to.Now, I’m not horribly disappointed because the sound quality of the two 4th Gens on each side of the TV is really great so the sound bar isn’t needed but I hate the thought of the wasted money sitting 32 inches wide in front of me producing no sound at all.IF, you have a smart TV like a Vizio, there is a way to activate the sound bar and have the Amazon Home Theater working at the same time. And here it is: the sound bar must be hooked up to an optical cable and the audio setting on the TV must be set to PCM not automatic. Auto defaults to whatever device you are streaming on ie a FireTV Stick. Then, while playing your FireTV Stick, choose the Home Theater as your audio source on the Fire TV menu. So in essence, the TV thinks it must send sound to the sound bar only while the Stick thinks it should be using the Home Theater. Through whatever glitch, I now have all three speakers working in tandem. BUT ONLY while using the FireTV device. It does not work if I am using the smart TV streaming apps from the Vizio home screen. Which I don’t do anymore except for a couple things that are not found on the Amazon App store.FYI, I don’t believe that the Fire Edition Insignia and Toshiba televisions sold here and at Best Buy have the capability to set up the Home Theater function with the Alexa app.Finally, a speaker group is the best way to get unlike models to sync with each other to play music. However, there’s a catch… You must ask for that group’s every time at the end of your request to play music etc.Meaning, with the stereo pair and home theater, music and movies are automatically played through those selected speakers by means of the Alexa app. You would simply make the standard request for Alexa to play a song or album with no extra added specification. But remember, you’re limited to only pairing the same models together for this to work like that.Now, with a speaker group, you can include your Echoes, Dots, Shows, Spots, Inputs, FireTVs, Tablets etc etc into that group and have them all going at the same time through out your home, so long as you name this all-Echo inclusive group something like “Every where” or “all speakers” or “whole house”. Be creative 🙂 “Echo Symphonic Orchestra”, “Live from the Love Shack”, or “on all decks of the Enterprise” (you can even call your individual room groupings for lights and sounds things like ” the Bridge” -Living Room, “Ship’s Galley” -Kitchen, “Ten Forward” – dining or rec room, “Shuttle Bay Two”-garage, ” Engineering”-utility room/basement, and “Captain’s Quarters”-master bedroom, “Risa” -backyard patio). Lol. Alexa groups can be named whatever you want! I digress though….The point is you have to tell Alexa to play music AND include the name of the speaker group everytime or else music will just play from the device you speak into. Ex: “Alexa play the song Starships on all decks of the Enterprise” or (boring) “Alexa, play Mr. Robot-o, everywhere” or “Play a lullaby in the dirty diaper factory (nursry)”. Get it?! I can sense your mind is starting to ignite like a solid rocket booster, now.I really hope this helps someone. I know it’s been a learning curve for me. And not always a lot of fun. Just wait til you first start exploring how to build your own custom routines or then decide to relocate devices into different rooms as you upgrade with new ones. It can be a labor of love…or regret.Bottom line, if you are looking to upgrade but aren’t entirely sure, try out the new Echo 4th Gen (especially in a pair for a Home Theater) and decide within 30 days if you really like them. Definitely explore the Alexa app and routines. And commit to replacing at least one bulb in each room with a color changing LED smart bulb to experience the fun you can have with this device. Also, I think you will be pleasantly surprised at what many people say is a drawback about being a directional speaker is really a benefit for most user’s needs, including yours.Some people will find fault in anything and some will find that they can’t have everything to their exact liking. There’s not a perfect smart speaker out there, so figure out what you must have features are, your nice to haves, and your deal breakers are and make the choice.Regardless, enjoy these little glimpses of the future. Heck, they’re even spherical shaped just like what the future devices and ships looked like in 2001: A Space Odyssey and Space Balls or a Borg scout ship, even. You gotta think that’s at least a nice nod for sci-fi fans everywhere. Or if you are a devotee of mod design or simply a believer in form following function, then this ball of joy is sure to please. So, enjoy your new Echo; It’s outta this world!-Picard, out. Hailing frequencies closed.

    Easy setup, great for what it is.

    Well, I have to say I love that its a speaker that has Alexa on it. If I had to complain though it would be easy truthfully. The music function. I had the advertised Unlimited plus music feature, after it was advertised as the only way for my grandmother to play certain old songs she was looking for with ease instead of her asking and then getting a different song with an advertisement worked in. However, it worked out for 2 seconds because I thought, why not pay more and get an Amazon Echo dot too for her room ao she could listen through the house. So that apparently added almost 20 bucks a month to a free service we had before. Mind you, I already pay for Prime and I added the Music Unlimited. But because she wanted to play her music softly in her room for ambience and then play it differently in the livingroom, Amazon said she had to upgrade to another more expensive music package called Unlimited Family. Thats the only way to she can listen to music she wants on her devices throughout her home. Again, the service costs more than most video services and is more than spotify, xm radio, or well just about any radio service that allows the option to pick a song via voice recognition these days. They really like to nickel and dime you for the most basic things and it isnt riggt in my opinion. If you pay to have music options through Amazons library, why should you pay more and more for ease of getting to that music? I mean, Amazon music uses to have all the music I could ever look for free with my Amazon Prime membership. And I think they added the voice search feature before this fee on top of a fee thing happened. It is crazy to me that every time you want to actually use the products that come out to the desirable extent they are advertised, you get either microtransactions blown at you, or even worse now you get a hefty monthly additional bill. Again, after being a member with the company paying a monthly fee for over a decade. Why would they think this would keep customer loyalty? All it does is make customers hope for and await another option that has something similar or even a little less nice for a better price. Can you imagine if a competitor like Ebay or Facebook got together and created a decent music library access via buying something like soundcloud or spotify. It has to be easy for the CEOs to themeselves want another option on a platform built similar to the Echo. And people themselves in the public that for the middle class have to like me be eager to seek out that second option. Yes the supply chain and easy shipping options makes it the onlyntrue source to buy things quickly and easily and Prime is still a great deal for that reason. But the echo, the dot, etc… are all just waiting to be taken off the shelves at this rate. And it is awful, because the advertised version and or even the versions where you can use the full functionality after burning a million dollars on unlocking them each month proves the Echo and its component products can do and be great products that make amazon something worth keeping a membership with for years to come. However, selling a product to active prime members and then putting limiters all over the software with the intent to create more monthly revenue on a loyal cusyomer base that you could of just succeeded in making that much more reliant on keeping a membership. Thats jist greedy and dumb at the same time. The echo or other products of this line have zero need to have these extra upcharges is the point. Get rid of them before your customers get rid of the products tge moment a better option becomes viable. Yes we will keep prime for the shipping. But heck, prime video is just rediculous right now with advertisements, fees for decent shows and movies and then just nothing of real value for prime members. It used to be a great service with limited options. But we loved and used it all the same because it was free for Prime members. Same with Amazon music. I loved it and used it all the time. No its advertisements for every song or monthly fees. So tired of the fee onslaught that comes with buying anything that looks like its useful these days. Thats the summary here. Amazon, you dont need to do what your doing. Your products have the ability to be in every household and used regularly everywhere. You will make a killing just selling the next updated color of the echo. Imstead of closing up video and music access. Eat the costs on rights and give it to your prime customers. You already raised rates for that too. But your cutting services on top of raising rates. What are you thinking. Your monopoly isnt unbeatable. Its difficult to see past the day people choose something better knowing what your chains look like right now. But Im telling you, this way of pushing customers for everything you want just because you can at the moment will end up making you the myspace of well….you know. Thats just my and millions of other peoples opinion though right now. So take it for what its worth.

    New Shape, New Processor, Better Sound

    The new Echo 4th Gen is a big change in aesthetics and design for the Echo line. The new spherical shape is wider and shorter than previous Echo versions, and now focus sound in one primary direction instead of 360 degrees. It adds an extra tweeter, and seems to produce more sound than previous versions. Here are my early thoughts so far, after using it for about 24 hours:THE GOOD:Setup was incredibly simple. I just powered the device on, and the Echo announced that it was ready for setup. I opened the Alexa app on my phone, and the new Echo was automatically detected and set up instantly. I didn’t have to enter any information at all. It can’t get any easier than this.BETTER SOUND. This new Echo has an extra tweeter, for a total of two 0.8 inch tweeters, and the same 3.0 inch Sub from the Gen 3 Echo. This new Echo is designed with the tweeters pointed forward, and the speaker placement seems to generate more bass also somehow, even with the same Sub as the Gen 3. All in all I think it sounds much better than Gen 3, with a little more bass and louder max volume. This could also be do to the sound-mapping feature that allows Echo to maximize the sound by detecting the acoustics and shape of the room. You can also pair two of these in stereo; and you are supposed to be able to use it as a speaker for your FireTV device, though I haven’t tested that out yet.Temperature sensor included. Yes, you can ask Alexa what the temperature is, and it seems very accurate so far. This is a nice touch, and I look forward to doing more testing, to see if I can set up routines based on temperature.AZ1 Processor. This new Amazon processor promises better voice recognition and faster Alexa responses. In my testing so far, I have barely noticed a slight speed improvement (for example turning on certain room lights) but there are supposed to be upcoming updates that will make an even bigger difference in speed.Zigbee + Sidewalk Bridge. This comes with a Zigbee hub, just like previous versions of the Echo Plus. It also contains the new Sidewalk Bridge, which allows the Echo to use bluetooth and radio connections to connect to some smart devices at long range, and push data to the internet.THE BAD:No 360 degree speakers. While I personally prefer the sound of this new version, some people might miss the 360 degree speaker setup of previous Echo generations. It certainly might lead to a situation where the ideal placement of the Echo in your room could be different.White power cord. This is minor, but a strange choice. No matter what color Echo you get, the power cord is white. Some people might find that annoying.Voice detection is not great while loud music is playing. This surprised me, as previous generations haven;t really struggled with this in my experience. I’m not sure if it is because this speaker is much louder, but Alexa hasn’t heard me a few times when I talked while the music was playing at max volume. This could be annoying if you often listen to very loud music.NEUTRAL: -Aesthetics. I think I preferred the look of the cylinder design, instead of this new sphere shape. This is totally personal preference of course. I also wish the entire sphere was fabric, instead of being plastic on the back side. Some people might prefer the ball shape though, so that is up to you.All in all, I’m keeping this new Echo because of the better sound and faster responsiveness, but it is not really a massive upgrade. Pretty decent so far, I’ll update this review and try to answer any questions in the future!

    These are like echo dots on steroids!! Twice as big but sound 5 times Better!!!

    I have my apartment which is not a small apartment and it has a loft as well for my 12-year-old son so he has his own area he’s getting to that age so anyway I had I think 5 echo dots and one echo show that had the visual screen for pictures and things like that but without a subwoofer or anything I was fine with the multi room music and I used it for that and basically also used it so I could just tell any of my echo dots or just basically when I open the door I would say Alexa Turn on my apartment!! Immediately all of my lights would come on and some of them are dimmed to a certain level which you can do in the settings on your Alexa app that most people have on their phones. I even have a couple lightbulbs that are multicolored so I have them set to green and red currently for Christmas!! So the lights all come on when I tell Alexa to do that including my living room TV as well. You can add numerous other items that are compatible with Alexa and/or SmartThings app and you name it. If you don’t have something that is compatible or doesn’t have Bluetooth or wifi etc… as long as you use a plugin for that item you can at MINIMUM turn it off and on with your voice or touch screen on your phone or Alexa show and I bought 2 of these Echoes because my friends have one or more and it is a sphere. So even though it’s twice as big as the echo dot, in the newer generations at least, they started out looking like a hockey puck which is still good and people have them still but I started using Alexa products just a couple years ago so, mine are all round balls that you can talk to and play music and control lights and cameras for security while home or check on your home while you’re not there!!I bought 2 regular Echoes to replace 2 of the echo dots because they have 3 or 4 different speakers in each one!!! Crazy how much sound you get from the dot but the bigger one the regular echo, sounds like a huge floor speaker but it’s just a ball and you can get black or white or blue and more so I got 2 of them to pair together for stereo sound and to my Samsung TV that has an Alexa app built into it. So I can rock out or get surround sound when paired with my TV and Soundbar Sub woofer which I don’t use the soundbar anymore the echoes sounded better but I got them last month. They were 49.99 a piece!!! That’s like half price and why I hadn’t bought them before so for 100 bucks I have a completely wonderful set of speakers that you barely notice and they sound wonderful and you can buy them with a Studio speaker by Amazon or an Amazon Subwoofer bundled for even more awesome sound but I live in an apartment so I don’t want to get kicked out!!! They act as a hub for all of your Amazon devices also so you don’t need anything else but one echo honestly to run all of your lights just get the type of bulbs they suggest and they have bundles for those also and it’s truly amazing what quality of sound and other things that they can do but I have already typed far toooooo much. Start with 1 even for listening to music over the holidays and add devices as you go. That’s what I did and 2 years later I have it set up so we’ll that I can talk to my son when he’s at his Moms house on his echo and my echo here and there’s no need for buying him a cellphone!! Yet!!There’s just so much I could say about what these things do for 50 bucks to get one of them is a steal because you’re just keep adding things and finding different things like grocery list reminders and alarms. It helps you with many things you wouldn’t even imagine.So now, when I open my door to my apartment, I have it set to where the lights automatically come on with my TV. I don’t even have to talk. It’ll do that too so kudos to the designers of these things because they are very affordable and do so much.!!!

    As Usual, Amazon Rocks!

    I am leaving the same exact review for the Echo speakers as I am leaving for this wonderful subwoofer. Amazon has asked for images when I leave reviews, so here are a couple. You can see the Echo Show (a tablet) and my entire system in the Man Cave. It’s all Amazon. Here’s the way to do this. First, I have a Fire TV, as you can see, and then I have speakers hooked up to it along with a separate subwoofer purchased through Amazon for about $100. It sounds like a multi-thousand dollar system. There is no need these days to spend a lot of money because everything is digital. But sometimes I don’t want to turn everything on with regard to the Fire TV but instead I just want to tell Alexa to play my playlists. This is when the Echo speakers you can see, along with this fabulous subwoofer, take over. All that is needed is Amazon Music and my voice and then I get real rock and roll sound with just the subwoofer and the two fourth generation Echo speakers! I listen to Zeppelin, ZZ Top, Beck, Clapton, The Beatles, Rush, Kiss, Yes, Lynyrd Skynyrd and the rest. And I listen LOUD. It doesn’t matter. The Amazon products take the heat and deliver chart-stopping sound with a beautiful sound-stage created by this subwoofer. It is just a small system for when I orally tell Alexa to play my music instead of turning on the other system. But boy is it powerful, with huge bass and a full-control equalizer through the Alexa app. And the bluetooth and Wi Fi never cut off or cut out. I recommend this highly.

    She who must not be named snowball edition

    A friend of mine recently gave me an echo. 2nd Gen. And I didn’t think I was going to wind up using it very much but being visually impaired I wound up using it a lot more than I expected.I came to find out that I could listen to my audible books and also my kindle books read to me which is great for my visual impairment it makes it a lot more enjoyable during the day when I become bored with trying to figure out what is actually on the television with my provision some things are just not watchable like they used to be.But the echo. 2nd Gen. Speakers are well they leave a lot to be desired and I had to add additional speakers so when I saw this item I was like I’m gonna go see what the reviews are like and everyone said they were awesome they’re awesome and so much better than the. 2nd Gen. So I decided to go ahead and get one for my birthday as a gift to myself and additionally I got the battery and the silicone carry case combination to go with it and I can take the thing all over my house in my yard and that is so cool.Since I’ve gotten this particular one though I have found there are so many other things that I can do with it other than just listen to my audio books and kindle books I can listen to podcasts I can get the daily news I can check the temperature in the room that the echo is in it is in which is really cool because I don’t have an interior thermostat in my house I run on a space here and a wood stove so I never know what the interior temperature of my house is but I do now.There are also cool games you can play play I’ve been playing prices right and Trivia and a choose your own adventure kind of game andAre you smarter than a 5th grader by the way I’m smarter than a 5th grader.I opted in for Amazon music and not only am I finding all the songs that I’ve forgotten from my past but I found some really cool new ones things things that I would have never found without this echo.I’ve created playlists that when I’m in the mood for one thing or another I just tell she who cannot be named what playlist I want to hear and all of a sudden there I am.She can also actuate my televisionI have a roku TV but I have also added a fireStick as well and she can actuate both of them and also my easy buzz camera that I have to keep an eye on my front porch and yard and be able to speak to people out there when I have guests without going to the door.Being visually impaired this thing is a real helping hand the only thing would be better is if she could clean my house maybe Amazon will get there eventually.But for now I’m very fond of this deviceOther cool additional thingsI like how much bass the speaker has I like to listen to binaural beats music and meditation music and some dance music for exercise and I can feel the music it’s pretty cool.The speaker is pretty darn decent.I chose the white version because because white is a color that I can see better with my vision the only concern I have is that the speaker cover might eventually get dirty but they get dirty I try to dust it on a daily basis just to make sure.We also are using it for well-to-do list for one, alarms, oh and I’ve set a household network up where the smaller echo. that I was gifted is now in my kitchen and I can play them as a group oop or someone in my kitchen can drop in on me and ask me if I want dinner or if I’m busy and vice versa I can drop in on them as well well additionally I’ve set it up so I can tell it to make phone calls directly from my cell phone and works as a great speaker phone I’ve tested it out a few times and everybody says that they can hear me just fine and clear.By the way for a little fun ask her to Beam me up Scottie. Just be careful of the tribbles.

    Effortless everything. I’m living in the future and that Future is here NOW!

    I have 8 Echos in various rooms and from several generations. Yep, I have a big house… What attracted me to this generation was that onboard voice capabilities that makes response faster and sure, who doesn’t want even better sound quality? I also liked the design better than the looks of the previous generations and that I could see the activity ‘light ring’ when I was sitting down. The spherical designed has some real advantages and it’s apparent in the improved sound. And improved it is. Music is easily better, more complex and effortless. This is NOT supposed to be a blast the neighborhood out speaker, but it did fill a larger room with quality sounding music that is noticeably improved to past generations. Voice commands and responses are practically instant and tigger happy quickly improved… Me likes so much that I replaced 2 of my 8 for in the areas where I am most using them. I even returned my first gen to amazon to get 25$ off then new one. Understand, my old ones are in pristine condition with all the original packaging and boxes, but how great to be able to do this!My whole house is voice controlled, lighting, fireplaces (ceramic logs with LED ‘fake fire lights’), thermostat and as an early adopter of the Echo Voice Assistant, I’ve never looked back. Being able to ask any question, to ask about a stores hours before even driving there to make sure it’s open and then being given the option to phone DIRECTLY from the device, is sweet. And how about NEVER having to touch your alarm clock to hit snooze or turn it off again? Yes please. Get quick and accurate local weather reports instantly, air quality too! Need to be reminded, multiple timers or announcements and intercom functions. Just say the word. I have every news channel I want set in my flash briefing and LOVE these, hearing them most days. Here’s my line up: Daily scripture, this day in history, Fox news, BBC news, Management tip of the day and a few more. You can easily add what YOU want to hear and it’s a treat. I LOVE podcasts and there’s a series called “Hardcore History” with hundred of episodes. Some of which are 6 hours long! What’s cool is I can start one of these while I’m cooking in the kitchen, tell the device to stop when I’m finished and when I later (day, month, weeks or whatever) tell it to “Play Hardcore History” it will name the episode I left off on and pick it up for exactly the same spot! How sweet that??And guys, knock yourselves out because there are thousands of podcasts on virtually any subjects to enjoy and learn from. I love having this ability!!! LOVE, Love, love the ability to always be learning new things from this device while still doing what I do do in the background. There’s so much more and I could literally go on for hours with what a great enhancement this has been in so many ways, learning, security, information, entertainment, news, communications, etc. Being able to have my arms full, walk though my house and just TEll a light to turn on along the way without having to touch or find a switch is sublime! Yep, you need the right lights, but boy, talk about convenience and living in the future now. NEVER going back! Even my landscaping lights and sprinkler control system, my security cameras works with it. And if I want to make an announcement to the whole house, I just say, “Echo, repeat EVERYWHERE” and then tell it what I want to say. And all 8, in every room will go off: “Dinner is in 5 minutes!” So sweet!I also have 2 of the Echo Clocks that work with the device and they are awesome. The LED ring and countdown before the alarm going off is sweet.But guys, I even LOVE just telling the Echo to play rain/storm sound effects and it’s calming, deep and healing. What a wonderful, effortless device with so many capabilities. Even during one of my personal bible studies, I can ask Echo for some background on virtually anyone I reading about and background is forthcoming.Yes, I was an early adopter and man, these are a purchase I’ve never regretted making. I use them EVERY day and they have enhanced my life in ways that are special, rich and convenient. Like something out of a Dick Tracy comic from the 1930’s, this system is here, ripe, mature and developed. I’m such a fan!The only suggestion I have for Amazon would be to give me the option in a metal package. Who wants to dust fabric? Lastly, IF you built in even great Biblical knowledge capability, you’d sell even millions more. Give me a teaching assistant that has a data base to field just about anything biblical I could ask of it.LOVING this product and the direction it’s going. The future IS now and ECHO is the best, most supported, device with thousands and thousands of functions. Thank you Amazon and keep enhancing this baby because I’m upgrading all along the way. I returned on for a discount and the other 1st gen is going to a charity raffle. And heck, it’s in perfect condition with all the original packaging and boxes.Hot Dog!-G

    Alex, turn up the music!

    The Amazon Echo (4th Generation) speaker has a sleek spherical design that is available in three colors: charcoal, glacier white, and twilight blue. It offers great audio quality for its price compared to premium speakers from other known brand, with one 3-inch woofer and two 0.8-inch tweeters that deliver strong bass and clear highs. The Echo has great smart home skills that can take control of compatible devices without the need of a separate hub. One of the neat features of this speaker is that it includes support for Amazon Sidewalk which can extend the range of your smart devices. The Echo also has and 3.5mm audio input/output that can be connected to external speakers or headphones as well as receive audio from other devices. Aside from controlling your devices, the Echo includes Amazon’s Alexa voice assistant that can answer questions, play music, set timers, control smart devices, and so much more.When it comes to my experience with the Echo, I can’t praise it enough. The initial setup is a breeze. There is only a power cable to plug into the device and to an electrical outlet. The Amazon Alexa app does a great job in walking you through the steps to get you up and running. For the most part, the speaker works great. In some occasions, the speaker doesn’t wake up properly when using the wake word, in my case “Alexa.” I’ve noticed that after several days I would have to unplug the device to force reboot it whenever it would happen. However, when Alexa does wake, she can sometimes have trouble hearing me even though she’s placed well in the center of my bedroom. When it comes to audio quality, I’m very impressed. The Echo easily became the go to speaker to listen to when I listen to music at home. For the current price, it’s a great purchase and easy recommendation and even better when it gets marked down on sale. Can’t wait to see what the 5th Gen brings to the table.

    DON’T buy a used one!

    I bought 2 of these as refurbished, to add to the other 3 that I have in the downstairs of my home. One would not connect after repeated attempts. Not the end of the world, just inconvenient and a hassle. Especially after working all day, this should be about a 15 minute procedure for BOTH units. So, after 45 minutes on ONE, I stopped attempting the connection, and switched to the other unit. The other unit connects within minutes (as it should) and I went back to the other one. This is the 5th time now to attempt a connection, and it won’t take. So, I click on the Alexa app for an Amazon rep with technical support to call me. So, a guy calls, and wants me to walk through the connection process with him on the phone. I get it, they need to verify the issue, so I oblige him and go through it with him on the line.Well, attempt number 6 fails with him on the phone, and let him know that was as far as I could get prior to asking for tech support. He wants me to unplug it, and start it back up again. I said OK, but this will be the 6th time of doing that exact thing. So I unplug it, and it reboots itself (as before), and we walk through the setup process again, and guess what? Will NOT connect. I asked since this was refurbished, if it was possible, by any chance, that it is still connected to the previous owner? He said he already checked on that, and it was not. So, now he wants me to unplug it once again, and close the Alexa app. I did both already, and informed him of such, but he insists that we need to do so. OK, we’ll try it again. So unplug, close the app completely, plug back back in, power up, and reopen app. Go through set up process, will not connect again. Frustration is starting to creep up on me, and he says hang on, I am going to reset your system remotely. Ok, maybe that helps (perhaps he should have suggested that early on?), I don’t know. Either way, phone is silent for a minute or so, then the hold music starts to play for another minute or 2 (maybe 3, not even sure now) and then I am disconnected! Wow, really? Ok, I am sure that was an error on his part, not intentional, but still….So, I call back, get bounced to the right department, tell the story to another tech support guy, he agrees that it is faulty and says he can just refund my purchase. Well, I let him know that I don’t want a refund, I want a replacement item. That is why I bought 2 more to begin with. No luck, refund only, so I agree to it.Well the other that is connected up, once I played some music on it, the speaker was obviously worn out, and distorted.So now, I am returning both of them.Probably going to go with 2 new ones at this point.

    It was great, for a couple of years…

    I was very impressed when I received my 4th gen Echo in November 2020. It had clarity, volume, plenty of bass (which I wasn’t expecting), and a clear top end. Of course, this doesn’t compare with my high-end stereo system but it beats the pants off of other small speakers. Yes, it’s better than the Google speakers and it’s hugely better than your phone.I put mine on a table in the kitchen because my main home stereo is in another room and the sound doesn’t reach the kitchen without blowing the ears out of family members in the living room. It was never subjected to extreme heat or high humidity but it was played daily while cooking.Last week it was playing during lunch when there was a pop and the music stopped. All of the other Echo functions continued to work except the main feature that I purchased it for… music. I tried unplugging the Echo and plugging it back in. I also reset my modem but it still doesn’t work. Of course, the warranty has expired.
