    Overpriced, maybe. But why do you say it is "garbage"?

    Because it sounds on forums. I think for just the sound quality and processing alone this price is ok. Siri is, well still Siri. It is amazing how well it picks up Siri commands even with loud music playing.

    My Homepods (both picked up at $249) are the best investments I have picked up recently! Are the overpriced... at $349... definitely, at $299... yes, at $249... no way! If I could get them cheaper I would own more than two. Still, I love this product... music sounds amazing!

    It really is too bad that only US BestBuy has been running these promos. I love my HomePod in the living room and have been looking to expand into other rooms if the price is right. I haven't found any deal, other than open box, saving just $20 bucks off the Apple Store price. If I could get them at $300 Canadian, I'd buy two more.

    Bought one at launch and returned it so no that’s not it.

    I bought one at launch too. I liked the sound (for the unit's size) but really disliked its obvious issues. Price was one, the other its Apple-Music dependency. So I returned it and went with other airplay gear instead.

    Since then, I've succumbed to the lure of Apple Music (family sub) and like it a lot. A lot.

    So at $250 I was tempted and bought two 'Pods recently. The bathrooms never sounded better! Practically everything I have is HomeKit enabled, so it all works seamlessly.
