Deals: Get a New HomePod for $204.99 During OWC's Audio Sale Event ($94 Off)

by

OWC is currently holding a sale on audio devices that includes the HomePod in White for $204.99, down from Apple's price of $299.00 ($94 off). The Black color is slightly higher at $207.99. These are currently the best prices for the HomePod among the major Apple resellers online, and just about $5 more than the best-ever price tag of $199.99 seen on Black Friday.

homepod duoNote: MacRumors is an affiliate partner with OWC. When you click a link and make a purchase, we may receive a small payment, which helps us keep the site running.

Both HomePods are brand new but come in OWC's bulk packaging, which essentially means they are shipped in a bland white box and not Apple's packaging. They also aren't covered under Apple warranty but instead come with 1 year of OWC's Fulfilled Limited Warranty. Despite these caveats, OWC is a trusted Apple reseller and this is a solid sale on a brand new version of Apple's HomePod.

Otherwise, OWC's audio sale has numerous discounts on Bluetooth headphones from Beats, Logitech, and Bose, as well as markdowns on Apple's own EarPods. Browse the full sale right here, and be sure to visit our own full Deals Roundup for more Apple sales.

I wonder how smart of a move would be to get one now, considering that a new model may launch at any time soon...

Hoping Apple does a smaller version and cheaper one like something to compete against Amazon Dot

If they made a decent soundbar and sub, coupled with a pair of regular homepods, they'd have a cool little small scale home theater sound system. Something akin to Sonos' components. The only must do in my little hypothetical is proper i/o. The lack of proper i/o was the biggest obstacle to homepod purchase for me. 2nd was price. Should have debuted at $199 imo. The current price (this sale) is right there, but the lack of i/o is a deal breaker. Shame. I like the looks and the sound. Anywho, my mini home theater would be a good idea for Apple to implement.

Apple also only has two engineers dedicated to HomeKit and HomePod FYI. Very limited staffing for the product

That is very sad to hear! I wish Apple would throw more resources at this area. I love my Homepods and have a difficult time not buying more (even though I do not need them). I, too, might be interested in a mini version of the Homepod depending on its price, features, and sound (I do not know if I would buy one if it meant reduced sound quality).

Picked up two black ones for $350 from a private seller just before Christmas. Said he won them for hitting sales goals at work (car salesman) but they are not an iOS household. Gave one to one of my mother-in-laws and put the second one in another spot in our house. Having two even in a small house has really proved to be great so far.

Make a new model with more I/O please..

Speakers are something people want to keep over a long time period and flexible and diverse I/O options are required for that to be a reality.
