Hurry! HomePod back down to $199 at Best Buy

As with a lot of Apple's products, the HomePod smart speaker isn't one we see discounted very often – especially not by this much.

Best Buy has dropped the five-star smart speaker to just $199.99 (opens in new tab) - a saving of $100 over its previous price. That's the lowest price we've ever seen it online and matches that offered by the retailer during Black Friday last November.

The icing on the cake? A four-month free Apple Music subscription for new users who buy the HomePod.

Apple HomePod smart speaker $299 $199 at Best Buy (opens in new tab)
The HomePod is the best-sounding, most music-oriented smart speaker currently available, with a compact, solid and stylish build, good integration of Apple Music and Siri, and a weighty sound.

If you're after a smart speaker but on the fence as to which one to buy, know that this is the best-sounding speaker out there. 

We may find it very Apple-centric – best suited to dedicated owners of iOS devices, then – but it's easy to recommend for its vast feature set and class-leading sonic weight and authority. A stellar buy at its original price, a sublime one at $200.
