    I actually prefer the more balanced sound from my echo plus (2nd gen) without needing to mess with the equalizer. I also prefer the 360° sound from the echo plus. after going back-and-forth I’ve personally experienced the microphones on the echo plus pick up my voice better. in my opinion this new version just sounds a little bit louder with more bass even though they both have the exact same drivers with the exception of the new one having an extra tweeter which doesn’t really make a difference in the sound. I actually had to turn down the bass just a little because it sounded a little… messy. i’m not really sure why they completely changed the design and got rid of the 360° sound and made it a directional sound speaker instead. i’m a little confused. One more thing I noticed about the new speaker is when the volume goes up the bass goes down which is very common for all these speakers and most Bluetooth speakers but it seems especially evident in this newest version of the echo. they could’ve at least made the bluetooth option volume sync with your phone with this new version. and of course it wasn’t compatible to pair with my echo plus for stereo. ok i’m done.

    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!

    I have already reviewed the Echo glacier white and the bulb separately, as I provided a different rating for each. It’s very generous of Amazon to offer the bulb for free with the 4th generation Echo Glacier. It allowed me to discover and appreciate the effectiveness of each device, the Echo, and the bulb.

    As you can read in my previous reviews, I won’t repeat what I mentioned before, except that I fell in love with the Echo technology and bought another one the same week. I am planning to extend the purchase of the Echo to several rooms in the house and buy smart home devices to link to Alexa using the Echo technology. Alexa in my opinion is the most intelligent voice activated personal assistant. Since I didn’t like the bulb much, you can read my review about it, I won’t go into this review much more.

    – Inconsistent when responding – sometimes will answer you from 10 feet away, sometimes won’t respond from 3 feet away. Hot/cold.
    – On some occasions, will understand you perfectly – better than you expect. At others, you wonder if you’re on the same plane of existence.

    Speaking of Echo though, I do like the sound quality. It does sound bassy but I think there’s a higher degree of clarity. I tested this by playing “50 ways to lose your lover” (aka Steve Gadd’s iconic drum groove) on Echo 3rd gen and 4th gen. The song sounds so much better on the latter.

    Anyhoo, the model in question has poor listening skills on account of which, I rate it a glorious 1 star.

    Updating – now pretty much unusable. Doesn’t pick up our voice at all

    Updating – over time, it has gotten worse. I talk directly to it, but it never responds. All of the devices in the other rooms much further away answer. Even with an update, the microphone doesn’t work well.

    Updating my review to one less star. I have an Alexa in my kitchen, my living room (this one) , and my bedroom. Both are dots. You can be standing in the living room talking to the device over it, and the other Alexas respond to you. The microphone is awful. Thinking about returning. I stopped delivery on the 3 to order the 4 when it came out. Now, I wish I didn’t.

    My black device came with a horrible looking white aftermarket cord that is not Amazon original ; at least match the color. It sounds ok; I have Alexa devices all around my house and compared to the dot, I think it’s honestly just ok. Not amazing.

    The Echo 4 is actually beyond my expectations. It is physically fairly heavy, the quality of manufacture and finish is good. There is a standard screw thread tripod socket on the bottom of the Echo 4 and the power cable is about 2 metres long. I have two Echo 4’s which I easily paired using the Alexa app on my iPhone into a stereo group with left and right channels. I was also able to choose several streaming programs, including Amazon Music (default) and Apple Music. You can also use TuneIn, Spotify and Deezer. The amount of bass is very impressive and a bit heavy out of the box but you can adjust the bass, treble and midrange using the app or by asking Alexa. The communication ring light on the base of each unit is easily visible, it’s very ‘Gort’ in operation, especially in a darkened room. I had seen in some influencer reviews complaints about putting the ring on the bottom but it works well in this location. Alexa, hears my voice even over fairly loud music about 90% of the time and when the music is playing at low levels all of the time.

    Es un buen dispositivo y el sonido es muy bueno para una habitación, solo que siento que los micrófonos no son tan buenos como los de la tercera generación, en ocasiones hay que repetir varias veces la palabra Alexa para que te haga caso aún estando muy cerca. El color rojo es muy bonito, el hub zigbee y el sensor de temperatura son bastante útiles para el tema de la domotica.

    We’re seniors and going through the typical age-related things of failing memories and reduced hearing at certain frequencies. Alexa has been the solution to much of those issues.

    We have reminders to take our pills, reminders for appointments and all similar things. It keeps our food shopping lists.

    Because of the sound frequency, we have trouble hearing the stove timer or the microwave timer. Alexa to the rescue.

    Being voice command activated, it’s perfect for seniors who might have limited technical skills.

    The music quality is surprisingly good for the size of the unit. We bought the additional music upgrade so we can make up playlists without using third party apps. Again, good for seniors.

    We’ve now added an Echo Dot as a bedside clock and alarm. Again, being voice activated there’s no fiddling with buttons or settings that you might screw up and Santa is bringing one for the kitchen with the outlet holder to extend the music to there and maybe some recipes too.

    Sumamente limitado en idioma español. no desperdicies tu dinero. Amazon no debería promocionar este producto en Latinoamérica. La variedad de instrucciones que alexa entiende en español es una burla, la disponibilidad de contenido en español es un mal chiste. No gastes tu dinero, mejor espera algunos años a que mejoren el producto para México y Latinoamérica.
