Amazon’s ecosystem (Echo-system?) by no means stops rising. Its latest participant has arrived: the Echo Pop, a $40 sensible speaker with a half-circle physique as a substitute of the absolutely rounded types of Amazon’s different Echo audio system.

I’ve been having fun with the Echo Pop as a small desk companion. Its sound is ok sufficient for its worth—although different, equally priced Amazon audio system will probably be a greater music expertise—however the greatest enchantment of the Echo Pop is well the enjoyable colours and attention-grabbing kind issue it has.

When it is subsequent to the Echo Dot (fifth Gen), the Echo Pop seems to be the identical measurement—that’s, for those who’re wanting head-on on the Pop’s flat, round face. But if you check out the Echo Pop from the facet, you’ll be able to see it is solely about two-thirds as deep. Where you actually can see the dimensions distinction is on the underside. The Echo Pop’s base is almost a full inch thinner than the Echo Dot, giving it a slim oval base as a substitute of a big rounded one.

That smaller measurement and base helps make it simpler to position into numerous spots round your private home. With its half-moon kind and single flat face quite than a complete rounded speaker, it is a good match for desk corners and small cabinets or facet tables.

The Pop additionally has barely bigger front-firing speaker than the fifth-generation Dot—1.95 inches versus 1.73—letting it sound a lot loud from whichever house you’ve got squeezed it into. I positioned mine on the nook of my desk and added it to my Alexa app in what felt like seconds. I already had Spotify linked, so I used to be jamming to Dua Lipa’s new music in moments.

The Echo Pop sounded nice with pop music (ha!) and digital lo-fi. But once I turned on sounds with decrease bass notes, I discovered these acquired misplaced on this little speaker. When it involves sound high quality, the Echo Dot is a bit higher and solely prices barely extra. You’ll get barely extra sturdy sound thanks to raised bass, although neither will evaluate to an even bigger sensible speaker just like the fourth-generation Echo (8/10, WIRED Recommends).

If you are much less apprehensive about improbable sound and extra a trendy speaker, that is Amazon’s greatest providing, and possibly the most effective model selection out of the world of cheaper sensible audio system. I’ve three totally different sensible audio system on my desk, and out of any of the pint-sized choices from Amazon, Google, and Apple, I’d quite take a look at the Echo Pop than any of the others.
