Homepod Mini ReviewSource: Stephen Warwick / iMore

Picture this — you're settling in for a quiet evening enjoying a good book, maybe a nice drink, and you command your HomePod to play some music to complete the ultimate chill vibe you want for your evening. Unfortunately, the last person to play music on your HomePod was having an absolute rager, so even though you are trying to play chill music, the bass is just blaring as soon as you turn it on.

Okay, in all seriousness, the HomePod and HomePod mini have some pretty impressive low-end sound — especially when you have the volume up. While that prominent bass is fantastic if you want a heart-pumping musical experience, when it's late at night, you don't want to disturb others in your place, or you just want a more chill vibe, that bass can be a little too good. Here's how to reduce bass on your HomePod in the Home app.
