    Echo dot... Does size matter?

    And do you need a Bluetooth speaker?

    20 Comments

    Depends if your women agrees in terms of size. However, performance should be somewhat sAme

    if you are using for music yes.

    I have a DOT and for me the volume is fine for what I use it for without any extra speaker needed (in fact an extra speaker would seem to be a bit counter productive for a stand-alone unit). However, I'm not one of those people that thinks music has to blow your ears off to be worth listening to.

    Same. I live in a flat and I'd feel uncomfortable playing music any louder than what the Dot can get up to. The quality is fine for general streaming music.

    Are we asking in male or female measurements?

    ​I agree.

    I have a spot and it is fine for listening to music on. also have the google home and whilst that is a little more bassy the sound doesn't seem better

    we have both and even the Echo isn't loud enough for us, so I have the dot plugged into our sound system for when we want it really loud.

    What's your preference?? Does size matter for a man ? :)))

    I've got one of these connected to my Echo Dot and it's more than enough:

    Bose

    Unless the best spot for the Echo is also a spot for a speaker, then the Dot is better. I already have a sound system so the Dot is perfect, plus it means I can place it where it's going to hear me better. Functionality wise they're the same, it's just the speaker that's extra and you can usually get a much better Bluetooth speaker for the price difference!

    ​I have the Bose, what benefit do you gain, does music play from both.

    I'm glad you said this.

    I've used both and the echo speakers are miles better. Not in the same league if comparing the two.

    The echo is good enough stand alone, however I wouldn't use the dot like that if you want to listen to any music. A Bluetooth speaker is possible but obviously you are adding another device which will require a power source.
    Having said the above, I got a dot for £30 due to a few vouchers I had, and so it's reasonable when you consider the price difference.

    It's not what you've got it's what you do with it that counts.. (_;)

    I got a dot and a jbl flip 3 (£70) much better sound quality than the echo
