Alongside the release of iOS 12.1.3, the latest update to the iOS 12 operating system, Apple has released new 12.1.3 software that's designed for the HomePod.
The new HomePod software will be installed automatically on the HomePod after you update to iOS 12.1.3, but you can also manually update and check your software version by following the instructions in our HomePod software how to.
As Apple outlined in its iOS 12.1.3 release notes, today's HomePod update addresses a few HomePod-related bugs.
It fixes an issue that could cause the HomePod to restart and it addresses an issue that could result in Siri ceasing to listen to a command.
HomePod is currently available in the United States, UK, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Spain, Mexico, China, and Hong Kong.

The sub is only capable of outputting low frequencies so there isn’t much adjustment that needs to be made. I manually adjusted the low-pass filter on my sub to my liking but that was all the tweaking I did.
Airplay seems to connect from iphone to homepods much quicker than before.
Not sure if any of my descriptors make sense, but it does to me and my ears :D
If you pair them, I'm sure the effect is diminished.. maybe they tuned it to be more for pairing? Who knows. I only wanted one HomePod for my apt.
Enough people take issue with it, that I suspect its not just me. But not every one can hear or tell the difference. Or even have the original fw as a reference point.
The 'loud' spectacle-filled sound is what drew me to HomePod in the first place! Almost a physics-defying sound signature.
Just shared my experience, yet I got your description and purpose of acquisition.
