Here are the best affordable wireless and smart speakers in our comparison

In its fourth edition, Amazon's Echo speaker tries a new approach with its spherical design: a choice that allows it to finally raise the bar, if not completely revolutionary.

Without essentially reshuffling the cards, the fourth-generation Amazon Echo has the advantage of laying more solid foundations than previous versions. The manufacturer's connected smart mini speaker delivers decent performance with finally decent sound reproduction (conditioned by a necessary adjustment to dampen its energy in the bass), high-quality sound pickup and intuitive use. Hence Alexa users on a budget will find what they need here. If your priority is to get the most capable smart speaker under €100, regardless of the Assistant on board, the Google Nest Audio would be a better option.

strength point

  • A rounded, warm response (which still requires pre-adjustment to stay nice).
  • Mini-jack analog input/output.
  • Good build quality.

Weaknesses

  • Very average sound accuracy.
  • The power reserve is particularly limited.
  • Some bugs cause the voice assistant to trigger sometimes.
