Is a new Echo Dot worth $50? The answer isn’t so straightforward. In a vacuum, definitely. But pressed on both sides by the superior smarts and sound of the $100 Echo and the only slightly inferior Echo Dot at huge discounts?
When we tested them side-by-side last year, Google’s Nest Mini boasted slightly superior sound to the third-gen Echo Dot, and this time around, the new Dot just edges past the Mini. If you’re listening to acoustic music, such as Bon Iver’s “Re: Stacks,” at 50% volume, the speaker boasts warm tones, solid track distinction and good balance.
The Amazon founder first became a billionaire in 1998, the year after Amazon went public as an online bookseller and has since increased his fortune by 12,425 percent — now raking in more than $140,000 per minute.

But despite having such credits as The Producers, Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, Spaceballs and History of the World, Part I, Brooks takes most pride in his marriage to his late wife, Anne Bancroft.

Last year’s Dot with Clock was a great device, adding a small-but-useful upgrade to the Dot. These alternative Dots use the exact same basic hardware, but they’re more exciting products in part because they represent something beyond simple iterative improvement. They feel more sensitive to customer needs. This year’s Kids Dot adds a fun tiger- or panda-themed design and genuinely interesting kid-facing content that you won’t get on other Echo devices without a subscription (the Kids Dot comes with a free year of Amazon Kids+, which normally costs $3/month).
Even below the high volumes, the track loses distinction, becoming fairly muddy behind the clean vocals. Of course, everything is relative. Playing a song like “This Life,” by Vampire Weekend, with distinct bass, guitar, vocal and drum tracks, quickly falls into messy noise at any volume above 80%.
