The Amazon Echo Studio delighted testers with its sound quality and how easily it picked up voice commands. They commended its support for both WiFi and Bluetooth, but they weren’t happy with its lack of a battery and its inability to pair with another device. They also didn’t appreciate its single-color variant.

Product testers were pleased with the Amazon Echo Studio’s sound quality and how easily it picked up voice commands. Specialists from Tech Radar were impressed with its audio capabilities after conducting sound tests with 3D music (This is one of the reasons it has the edge over the Amazon Echo Gen 4, which we covered in our Amazon Echo Gen 4 review). They liked that the speakers could produce a large soundstage and a great bass response even after they hooked it up to a TV and streamed movies. Critics from Rtings were also happy with how well it “heard” voice commands from a distance and that its microphone was mutable. It doesn’t have support for Siri, but if this is something you’re keen on, go ahead and check out our Apple HomePod Mini review.

Still, testers complained that the Echo did not have a battery. They also lamented its lack of support for multi-device pairing and didn’t like that it only comes in one color variant.

The Amazon Echo Studio is a top-tier Bluetooth speaker that was first available in late 2019. The smart speaker is cylindrically shaped with an LED ring on its top, and, like most highly rated speakers, it comes with support for both WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity. Its WiFi connectivity makes it possible to use Amazon Alexa, and its Bluetooth range of up to 331 ft allows users to stream their music from the speakers even when far away. It is easy to set up and manage through the Amazon Alexa app, and since it also has a Zigbee hub built in, it can be integrated with other smart home devices so owners can control them through voice commands. This feature is quite tricky to find, even among the best Bluetooth speakers. The Echo Studio will need to be connected to a power source to work since it does not have a battery. This limits it to indoor use. For an alternative that can be used outdoors, check out our Anker Soundcore 2 review.
