Thanks-repped! I had been waiting for this price since the Christmas sale.

Beware: when I bought my 3 HomePods from BB in December, all 3 were used/obvious open boxes. Of the second batch of 3 they sent, 1 was open box. You can tell if they don't have tight plastic wrap on the outside of the box and on the HomePod itself.

It was such a hassle to return the extras, as they had shipped it for free and had no record of them.

I bought one earlier (BF sale) from BB and it was NIB. So of the 7 they sent me between 2 purchases, 4 were used.

As prev comment mentioned, last promo was on Dec, when it went to 199. Just FYI. Got that one too. Does not play too well unless your whole ecosystem is with apple, you're def getting this for sound quality.

As others have mentioned if you don't have anything Apple, don't bother. That said the sound quality on these are really freakin' good for the price. I wish the sound guys that are in charge of these would take the lead on Beats because this is an impressive piece of tech for $250.

Have this. Sound is amazing. Sucks with Spotify since there's like a 2-3 delay to skip/play songs. Kinda annoying but still works.

Since the MSRP dropped to $299, I'm surprised we haven't seen more deals. This isn't as great a % off when it was $350

Agreed. When Apple dropped the price to $299 I figured we'd see the $249 deals regularly. This is the first I know of.

Can anyone with both HomePods and Sonos Play:3/5 compare the sound quality? I have Sonos setup in living room, but thinking of getting a pair of HomePod for the bedroom. Or should I just stick with Sonos?

Sound Quality is definitely better on HomePod, But Sonos comes close. Since you are already in the sonos eco system it is better to get the Sonos.

Also there is sale going on Sonos One speakers at Best Buy

Yeah, don't get what's going on. I bought one and mine had the clear plastic wrap loosely around the box. The cashier acted like it was perfectly normal for an MSRP $350 (at the time) device to be presented like this. But I checked the speakers carefully and it looked unused.

Despite what S_XADA said, a single HomePod doesn't even come close to sounding better than the Play 5. But it's half the price, so it really shouldn't.

Now a PAIR of HomePods sounds just as good as a Play 5, but it's the same price, so it should. Also, a single HomePod DOES sound better than the Play 1, for sure, and it's pretty comparable to the Play 3, maybe a tad better than the Play 3 I'd say.

Anyway, to summarize, for sound quality, the order is as follows:

Sonos Play 5 / pair of HomePods
HomePod
Sonos Play 3
Sonos Play 1

given now the MSRP is $299 instead of $349, it's a pretty minor sale. I am waiting for a sale around $200 then I will snap a 3rd one.

it has great sound for its size and price. Siri is love or hate.
Really wish: 1. sleep timer 2. ability to build multiway systems (4 or 5) beyond stereo (2.0).

All should be technically feasible if they would put more manpower on the software.
