With the newly introduced Amazon Echo taking up a lot of interest from many people, we can not ignore the fact that the smart speaker is standing at a more or less equal price of Bose SoundLink III. Amazon Echo seems to be a very fun thing to be had. Is it really worth our money? Is it really smart, unlike those annoying, misinterpreting voice-controlled apps and software? Also, does it sound as good as some other cool speakers out there, in between is Bose SoundLink III? Let us check these two products out! (See also : Amazon Echo Vs Bose SoundLink Color)
Comparing Amazon Echo and Bose SoundLink III side by side, we can immediately tell that Amazon Echo is much smaller and more compact than the other product. Does that mean Amazon Echo is more suitable to be brought for travels? Well, not exactly. While Amazon Echo is capable of space-saving, it is only AC-powered, which means that it needs to be constantly ported to a power outlet. There is no battery here. Meanwhile, Bose SoundLink III is battery powered, with 14 hours of battery life per charge. Thus, if you think that you will ever need to bring along the speaker out, Bose SoundLink III is more appropriate.
Additionally, Amazon Echo supports both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, but there are neither input nor output jacks available besides the power port. At the contrast, Bose SoundLink III does not have Wi-Fi, but has BlueTooth, aux input, and micro-USB port. Apparent enough, Amazon Echo is designed to work in a completely wireless environment. Furtherly, it is designed more to integrate with other Amazon’s products, like Amazon Prime and Amazon Kindle Fire. The main reason of why you would like to buy Amazon Echo is, of course, its smart and super-interactive voice control. You can control it easily from a distance apart, and you can ask it many things, including asking it to re-order your paper towels from Amazon or to tell you today’s headlines. The secret of its extreme intelligence is Alexa, the ‘brain’ that is built in the cloud system.
