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 area you have 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 song in moments.

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