Smart Sound for Google Home Max

Google Home Max is our first speaker with Smart Sound, a new audio experience where your speaker adapts to your environment, content and tastes. Room EQ and Media EQ are two Smart Sound features.

Room EQ

Once you set up Max, Room EQ measures the acoustics of your space. Walls in a room can amplify the bass. This leads to a muddled sound in which the bass overpowers the vocals of your music.

Room EQ automatically corrects for this excess bass. This leads to a more balanced sound. Smart Sound is always working, wherein if you move Max to another side of the room, it adapts within seconds, no settings required.

You can further personalize your listening experience. Just manually tune bass and treble sound settings.

Note: The microphone must be on for Room EQ to work.

Media EQ

With Media EQ, Max dynamically changes the equalization based on what you listen to, such as your Google Assistant’s voice, music or a phone call.
