The title says it all. I recently bought a an Amazon echo and I am not too pleased with how well the microphone picks up my voice. Especially, when loud music is being played the echo's microphone reception isn't great. I am thinking about picking up a HomePod and was wondering if those who own one can shade some light on this for me. I haven't found much online about this except that people say it's great. Both Apple and Amazon claim that the speaker can pick up your voice over music so I wanted to hear real world accounts. Questions: How well does it pick up your voice at max volume, and if so, how far and how loud do you need to speak? How well does it pick up your voice when external noise is present (other speaker, fans, etc)?
