Google Home Max review: premium sound quality at a princely price

 

Google pumps up the volume with its super-sized smart speaker

Gloriously full and detailed sound ; Google Cast multi-room ; Lots of ways to play to it

Some minor connectivity issues with the app

Google Home Max review

 

A ready-to-party smart speaker that doesn't quite hit the notes

Seriously deep bass ; Plenty of power and volume ; Great mic sensitivity

Not as refined as the Sonos Play:5

A ready-to-party smart speaker, as long as the part isn’t full of chin-stroking audiophiles.

Google Home Max review: Cranking smart speaker audio to the max

 

Google Home Max offers maximum sound, but it also has a maxed-out size and price tag. If you're tied to Google's ecosystem (not Amazon Alexa) and want

Maximum sound ; Easy to setup ; Built-in Google Assistant

Expensive ; Heavyweight with a massive footprint

Google Home Max review

 

A big speaker that nails the small touches

Sounds incredible ; Works with Google Cast products ; Bluetooth-compatible

Google Home app isn’t always responsive ; Quite heavy

If your space is in need of some more sound, there are plenty of speakers that could fit the bill. But Google’s latest creation is among the smartest around for the price and its clever design lifts it above the competition.

Google Home Max review: The loudest smart speaker gets cheaper

 

Big and bold, the Google Home Max is a beast of a smart speaker – and now it's a fair bit cheaper

Lots of bass ; Excellent smart features ; Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and 3.5mm playback

Expensive ; Less well balanced sound than Apple HomePod

They're wireless, supporting both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity (including aptX) and you can also plug in via 3.5mm cable and optical S/PDIF for legacy devices. The only caveat? They're rather expensive at £1,000. But that's half the price of the...

Google Home Max review

 

The Google Home Max is not the first smart speaker to aim for better audio quality, but it sounds better than any of the ones I've heard. And at twice the price of my favorite, the Sonos One ( £199.00 at Amazon.co.uk ) , I'd expect nothing less.

The Google Home Max builds the convenience of Google Assistant into a plus-size speaker that can fill a room with excellent sound. The microphones respond well, even when you're blasting music.

The sound can be a little too revealing, and guitar lines in particular can sound a little too piercing for comfort. If you mainly want background music, you should spend half as much on the Sonos One.

Although too expensive for mass appeal, the Google Home Max is the best-sounding smart speaker yet.

Google Home Max

 

The Google Home Max is a huge lump but it will blow your socks off. With a reduced price of £299/$299, it's worth a second look. Here's our full review.

Google Home Max review: Capable but costly

 

The Google Home Max is the best all-round smart speaker you can buy, but you probably should go cheaper

Buy the Google Home Max from John Lewis now

Google Home Max review

  (Rating Hidden)

Google's big grey canvas box is billed as a big step up in sound quality for voice-activated speakers like the Amazon Echo and the original Google Home. The Google Home Max has the same smart hub credentials as its smaller cousin, but puts a big...

Google Home Max review: An assistant for music lovers

 

If you're looking for a voice-activated speaker and want excellent sound quality, the Google Home Max is the best option on the market. It's expensive, but you get a lot for your money. If you want great audio and don't want to mess around with more...

Excellent sound quality ; Simple setup ; All the features of the Google Assistant ; Tasteful design ; 3.5mm jack and Bluetooth support for additional audio devices

Expensive, especially for a stereo pair ; Somewhat limited streaming service selection (but at least it has Spotify) ; Third-party support still trails Amazon's Alexa ecosystem

At $399, the Google Home Max will not sell as well as the standard Home or Home Mini. But many people listen to music on those devices, and a subset of them certainly would like to combine the smarts of the Google Assistant while also upgrading their...
