Initially, we found the Echo Dot to be lacking in sound quality. This best-selling third generation model, however, got some pretty sweet upgrades over its predecessors, including an improved speaker. While it's still lower audio quality than you'll receive from a pricier model, like the Echo ($99.99, pre-order for Thursday, October 22), one reviewer noted that the Dot offered the best sound quality they've experienced on a smaller speaker of this size.
Aside from being slightly more rotund in size than the Echo Dot 2, this new-and-improved speaker, which features a light ring, syncs up to your other smart devices, including laptops, tablets, smartphones and more, as well as your smart home devices, including smart light bulbs, plugs, thermostats and more.
All in all, it's a small-but-mighty smart choice that offers up easy connectivity and Alexa-enabled features a budget-friendly price point, making it a great starter speaker for those who are newbies to the smart home speaker game.
This deal runs through Monday, October 5, or while supples last, so snag your two-pack with free Prime one-day shipping whle you can!
