GOOGLE HOME MAX REVIEW | Is “Smart Sound” a Scam? Smart Speaker & TECHNICAL COMPARISON SOUND TEST


hi close friends this is brain firm this is technology today and also we’re going to look at the brand-new Google house max the Google house max is the 3rd and also biggest Google home device that has actually been released thus far it’s certainly way bigger as well as has much better noise however is it worth $400 not rather sure but let’s locate out why so in terms of the actual equipment of the Google house max it has a touch surface area in the top that has the ability to play and pause you can slide to the entrusted to transform the quantity down or glide it to the right to turn it up however as other individuals have actually noted you need to swipe a few times to obtain right up or right down it doesn’t function from one swipe on the back there is a USB C port which I’m not truly sure what it’s for yet it does charge my phone as well as remarkably sufficient it charged my macbook pro and there’s some reports that you can link an Ethernet port to it on this dark charcoal variation the power plug is white I hear that the other variation kind of has an olive look to it which appears type of unattractive there’s additionally a button on the back which permits you to make any kind of adjustments to it like

Equipment setup there’s even a three-and-a-half millimeter jack so if you have a record player or any kind of audio interface that sustains three as well as a fifty percent millimeters it’ll function there’s likewise a switch in the back to mute the microphone the mics off it informs you and it sort of has this sort of want to it I truly do not like this choice I such as the choice that’s on the back of the original Google home where it’s simply a switch but this appears to be the kind of layout language that they’re making use of on the brand-new go Google house tools like the Google residence Mini there is a little mat that you can place on the base of the audio speaker and also that’s actually really trendy and truly helpful when you have a speaker up versus a difficult or level surface specific frequencies in the songs or sound that you’re listening to can shake that surface area or anything around it and also that can produce some problems you do not want to have rattling when you’re listening to songs it’s magnetic so it fits both at a horizontal alignment and after that a vertical positioning one thing that’s really cool is when you’re flipping between the vertical and straight positioning you can actually hear the

audio speaker’s modification so when you have it vertical it remains in mono which’s truly terrific particularly if you connect it up with one more audio speaker what you can do as well as when you rotate it horizontally it goes back to stereo in regards to the smart-home side of whatever is much like any kind of other google house gadget and also ask it different points like hi Google play some copyright complimentary songs alright shot this radio mix from google play songs based upon the semi copyright cost-free songs playlist so the Google house max is an extremely huge speaker it’s a large tool and also in comparison to the Google house you can see it truly Dwarfs it and also it was very shocking once I took it out of package however a bigger speaker is in fact an advantage since the entire physics of how audio works you need to have a larger magnet and also a bigger audio speaker in order to have a fuller noise there’s simply no navigating physics as an audio engineer I am truly skeptical concerning really pricey audio speakers especially ones that come out from non-traditional speaker business and after that when you talk concerning points like smart sound or AI artificial intelligence as well as you toss it in there it makes me a bit unconvinced but I have to confess I was really stunned so if you open the Google residence app

there are a couple of settings there if you’re currently playing music from the Google house max you can click the little card that has there and you can regulate the sound and you can stop it you can skip onward to different components of the playlist if you intend to as well as there’s even a equalizer up here now if you wish to use the Google house acts and not just with casting however with Bluetooth you just go right into the residence app as well as if you’re currently playing something from it you can just click the card as well as hit the little gear symbol there or click on the burger menu and after that click on tools and afterwards discover your certain audio speaker and you’ll see the bed room audio speaker below is what I require to click on settings as well as you’ll drop to combined bluetooth devices you click that and after that allow pairing setting when you intend to do that you most likely to your Bluetooth settings and also then most likely to even more settings and afterwards match a brand-new tool and also you ought to have the ability to see the gadget there considering that I already have it paired on my phone it’s not revealing up on this listing yet it will certainly for you of what it is as well as it’s not a complete on audio system with like a sub and other speakers yet it’s a solitary contained audio speaker it’s really good it’s not overly severe it’s rather complete that’s not mosting likely to be as full as something that has a specialized subwoofer yet it’s complete

enough that it can truly provide the energy to the songs that you’re listening to as well as it can actually kind of fill the space quite well now I actually do not assume you ought to use this for a multimedia system like with your TV and also I’ve really listened to that some individuals have been having concerns with that said and I have not had the ability to get to work myself you wind up having some lag and points like that so it’s actually planned just to pay attention to music with when you integrate an actually excellent loud and also complete noise together with the Google aide the microphones need to be really great and remarkably it does a really excellent work at that a person thing that I have actually had concerns with with the original Google house and often the Google home Mini is whether it can truly acknowledge me from throughout the room occasionally I have to duplicate myself a couple of times however with this one not as much the truth they can hear me over very loud songs is truly unusual yet inevitably when you have it in between the 80 to 100% quantity array it can have some troubles there if you go to that 80 to 100% array in terms of quantity it’s not great as well as the reason why is because the low-end can not stay on par with a high-end it finishes up

kind of separating and also distorting and it starts sounding thin because the treble or the greater regularities are much louder than the reduced end so the wonderful spot for me is really from 75% as well as down honestly you shouldn’t be listening to it a hundred percent it’s method also loud as well as when I was recording this video testing out various points at just how percent my ears started sounding it’s it’s it’s way too much you just have one collection of ears so make certain you protect them men because it’s the greatest speaker the inquiry is just how does it compare to the others below’s a little examination I did to compare the 3 various Google house tools as well as see how loud they are and right here’s a little examination to reveal how each of them appear so what are your thoughts what are your monitorings obviously the max is mosting likely to be the loudest in the max there’s something that’s fascinating concerning this speaker that’s various than a lot of as well as it’s type of comparable to what the Apple residence pod is advertising it has a smart function to it an AI or equipment discovering where if there are

microphones are always paying attention and also it adjusts the eq according to its surroundings currently if this in fact does function and function well it’s kind of amazing in the audio designer area being able to place your speakers and a speaker and different things like that within a space it’s very hard you need to do a lot of dimensions you obtain a flat microphone you use a program you examine just how whatever appears on then you eq it that in itself is gon na be thousands of dollars simply to do and it’s just a great deal of work one of things that you’ll see is if you move an audio speaker into an area that protests a wall surface or specifically behind-the-scenes there’s a whole lot of bass build-up so realistically the smart noise ought to be decreasing the bass however I really did not actually hear that way too much and also if I did I had not been too certain if that was a sugar pill impact or otherwise I did a few tests and I paid attention to it both on an open location on this desk right below as well as after that against the wall on a floor and I really did not observe anything instantly and after regarding a minute or so I really didn’t see a significant difference then either there may be a slight bass

distinction once again I’m unsure if my ears simply recommended to it so the very best point that I can do is obtain incredibly clinical about it so what I end up doing is tape-recording the audio from the audio speaker utilizing my sennheiser the industry standard microphone for a great deal of flick collections and i tried to see if there’s an eq distinction from the beginning of the clip as well as completion of the clip let’s go see what change we’re gon na look at the analyzer and we’re gon na use our ears fine so we’re considering this very first clip and it’s where the audio speaker was on my table there’s a device called a regularity analyzer which permits us see what the EQ appears like on a certain audio recording so on the frequency analyzer we can see that the height is around that 20 mark and also one of the most optimal frequency curve that you often tend to want is one that’s level so it’s great to for me the note that I boosted the low-end on the speaker itself simply to stress this examination now this next one is where it gets on the ground up versus a wall surface so right here we can see that it’s peaking around the 15 mark so it has to do with five decibels of difference in this certain regularity range now there’s absolutely a whole lot more to it in regards

to various other regularities listed below it that might transform the way that the bass is viewed so this is not like very comprehensive yet it gives you a concept and after a bit of time I do not really see way too much of a difference in the optimal there may be two or 3 decibels however I’m truly having a tough time telling as well as in the waveform you do see at the beginning it’s a bit louder yet I’m unsure if that’s just an anomaly so what we’ll do is we’ll compare the audio today at the beginning of this clip in the long run to see if perhaps this smart sound is doing something ultimately I don’t believe there’s a huge sufficient difference either it’s not reducing sufficient base when it’s up against a wall or when it gets on a table not versus a wall surface it’s not increasing the base enough as well as I really just don’t such as having the absence of control over what’s taking place or even just understanding what’s taking place yet what do you assume go on and also leave your comments down below so do I assume it deserves $400 I really don’t think it is it’s a bit pricey for me if it was a $250 it’s an immediate buy if it goes to $300 it’s a solid factor to consider I have actually listened to that the Apple residence

covering is priced at $350 so I imagine this guy will certainly decrease 50 bucks at the very least to match that price I have $350 it’s still a little bit of a high-pressure salesmanship for me so if you’re an audiophile there’s a great opportunity that you currently have a respectable collection of audio speakers as well as because case I would certainly simply recommend obtaining a Google house Mini and also after that a chromecast Sound you can hook that as much as the audio speakers that you already have and truly it winds up costing much less than regarding 80 or 90 bucks to do that whole upgrade so at the price of a normal Google residence you’re able to update your whole system to have Google assistant support so with that said in mind it does become a little bit challenging to market you in a $400 clever house audio speaker right so if you are sort of an audiophile however you’re not the type of individual that desires to go like extremely crazy excessive like me where I have studio monitors and a below then this may be a great alternative if you intend to spend $400 one other thing that gives way some

individuals is that the Google home max comes with YouTube red for one year as well as that additionally includes google play music which I truly like so there’s some financial savings there however regrettably for some crazy reason Google is not enabling existing consumers to retrieve that deal I do not actually obtain it but they must absolutely toss us a bone a bit simply to keep us as well as incentivize us to purchase these points right so what are your ideas concerning all this are you considering getting your groove on house max go ahead as well as leave some comments down listed below I’ll have some web links down below for the chromecast Audio and if you want purchasing simply a Google residence Mini as well as some supplementary speakers I can list some stickers down listed below that I really like at different cost rates as well as while you’re down there if you discovered this video useful or intriguing please give me a thumbs up that still remains to growl me as a small youtuber and assists other people find my video clip in Network I really value all the support that all of you have given me and if you want to support me in various other methods I have a patreon so go on and also take a look at the web link down below in the summary many thanks once more for viewing this is tech today till next time
