OWC's HomePods are new and come in non-retail packaging, meaning you'll receive them in a nondescript box instead of Apple's official packaging. These HomePods are covered under one year of OWC's Fulfilled Limited Warranty instead of Apple's warranty coverage. Both colors of the HomePod are in stock and available to ship today. Free shipping is available with an estimated five to eight business days for the delivery, depending upon your location.

Besides the HomePod, OWC is currently running a sale on refurbished models of the MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, iMac, iMac Pro, Mac Pro, Mac mini, and more. These computers all include a 14-day return policy, free shipping, and Parallels Desktop Pro Edition for $19 (originally $99.99). The retailer fully inspects each device, and ensures that they will perform reliably even in refurbished condition.

We track the best deals on HomePod every week, so be sure to bookmark our guide if you're on the hunt for solid HomePod discounts.

Update 4/28: This deal has now expired, but the white HomePod is available for $214.88, which remains the current low price on the smart speaker.

65$ is, what i would see a fair price.
and if they spy at me, it should be free!

Get over yourself. Please keep buying the cheaply made Chinese knockoffs if you want. I don’t feel this thing is worth $349, but when I’ve spent a couple hundred on Bose and Sony speakers, a $200 Price is not excessive.

Plus, if you are truly worried about people listening in, I guess it’s time for you to toss out your computer, iPhone, tablet etc. You DO realize there are mics on those items too right? Smh

If they just allowed bluetooth I would buy one. You can buy a bluetooth speaker for $10 today, yet the top of the line Apple speaker doesn't have that functionality. FOH.

But that $10 BT speaker doesn't employ multi-speaker automatic adaptive beam-forming to equalize room acoustics, providing superior sound. Nor does it have an adaptive beam-formed away of microphones so that it can precisely locate a user's voice, at a normal level across a room, for siri music commands in a noisy environment.

That $10 BT speaker also doesn't work autonomously, without the need to work with a phone/tablet/computer for playing Apple Music.

In other words, it does more than what a BT speaker does, and was not designed to compete with BT speakers. Two very different devices.

Nice price! Sadly, with overly restrictive ways to get audio into it, it is a no-go for me... you're killing me, Smalls! :confused:

I got one to try and no way it it worth 300. Even at 200 it’s still to expensive imho. 130-150 is the sweet spot. Been looking at used ones.

It is when it's locked to Apple's ecosystems. No bluetooth, no Spotify, no Pandora...

Heck, my Cortana speaker has more functionality than this thing, and it sounds really really good, too.

How does it have more functionality?

And you are in Apple's ecosystem. Most of us have iPhones or Macs or iPads. That is literally what we use to output audio so AirPlay works very well for us. We aren't trying to have our friends come over with ThinkPads and play on our HomePods. So tell me, what are you prevented from doing that you actually do often? Because, again, this product, like all Apple products, are marketed to Apple consumers.
