Design- Premium looking metal body with touch capacitive buttons
Unlike the small donut shaped round smart speakers (Google Home Mini, Echo Dot) in this price bracket, the I Smart Speaker is a fully developed cylindrical speaker with a metal mesh grille. The smart speaker measures 131mm x 104mm x 151mm and weighs 853 grams. In a 0.7 mm metal mesh, it is said that, 36060 10,531 made a sound hole accurately to make a noise around 10. The speaker is mounted on four rubberized pads to prevent vibration if placed on a hard surface. The aesthetically clean front has a small I logo in a gold color finish.
Touch the capacitive buttons
The minimally designed matte finish top has a light ring, two far-field microphones and a standard smart speaker touch capacitive button configuration – volume up / down, pause / play and mute microphone. Overall, the MI Smart Speaker Sub-5K is the most premium smart speaker finder in the price bracket. You can place it on the TV cabinet next to the TV or shelf and it will easily blend in with the home decor. Make sure you have a power plug in as you need to keep the power supply on to keep the MI Smart Speaker running. There is no 3.5mm audio jack on the speaker.
Setup and features
Like any Google Assistant-supported speaker, the MI Smart Speaker can be easily set up with the help of the Google Home app. It has a built-in Chromecast that allows you to cast wireless music over speakers through smartphones and other connected devices like smart TVs. You can cast audio from a connected smartphone or tablet. The MI Smart Speaker streams music from Spotify and YouTube Music without any connectivity issues and plays videos on a smart TV connected with voice commands.
The Google Home app for smart speakers, including the MI Smart Speaker, includes a lot of settings. One mode that comes in handy is the night mode which reduces the noise of the reactions and also reduces the brightness of the light rings in a pitch dark room. Importantly, I can use the Google Home app to control all connected devices and smart home appliances, such as smart lights, thermostats, security cameras, etc., through smart speakers.
The MI Smart Speaker is equipped with Bluetooth 2.2 which means you can connect with smartphones, tablets and smart TVs to stream audio. Last but not least; You can also connect two MI smart speakers for stereo sound setup at home.
Audio performance and microphone response
You can throw away all the features you want and design the most premium looking device but if the speaker can’t produce good audio then this is just for ory accessory to take up space in your home. In the case of MI smart speakers, it works great for sub-4K smart speakers. Powering the speaker unit is a 12W (63.5mm) sound driver that is not loud enough but is sufficient for a bedroom setup and also works in a medium sized living room. The sound produced has a whole warm signature and has the right amount of thumps. In fact, the sound is very well tuned and you will not hear any distortion while playing music at maximum volume, thanks to DTS Professional Tuning and Texas Instruments’ TAS 5805M Hi-Fi audio processing chip.
Audio delivery doesn’t come much richer and more complete than Google Home; However, it works great for speakers that are half the price of the Google homepage. And if you compare the MI Smart Speaker sound competition (by price) with the Google Home Mini and Echo Dot, they won’t get a chance. The MI Smart Speaker feels better and gives an immersive listening experience overall.
As far as microphone response is concerned, MIX responds much better if the audio is not coming to 100% volume. This is a common problem I’ve encountered with almost all smart speakers, even with modest premiums. You’re throwing music at maximum volume and you’re screaming while listening through the microphone setup. The MI Smart Speaker is responsive enough to answer your questions related to weather, traffic, daily activities and can set reminders, alarms and read your morning briefs.
If you pay Rs. If you are looking for a versatile smart speaker internally then I think smart speakers are a great deal. 5,000 looks premium, produces good, clean audio, and is packed with all sorts of Google Assistant backed smart speakers.
Smart Speakers If you are not in the market, you might want to consider several non-smart Bluetooth options that produce overall audio; However, they fail to provide the convenience and convenience of a smart speaker.
I think the price of the smart speaker is Rs. 99, but 9 but Rs. Can be purchased in 3,499 for a limited period.
