Wow. I feel like buying it now. Is it available in UAE ?
Which is better for families ?
The list of countries it is available in is growing. Amazon just announced 23 more countries it is available in but most of them are in the Europe and South America. I don't believe it is yet in the UAE. You can buy it but you will have to use a country location that it currently is sold in like the US, Canada, Germany, UK, or India or Japan just to name a few. You can also try some hack to get it to work in UAE until it is officially launched there.
How many people do you have in your family? You can buy just one or more than one device it just depends on what you want to do with it. I live in a household of two people and I have several Echo devices. If you want multi room music get a bunch of Echoes or Echo Dots and connect them to external speakers via Aux Cables. If you have multiple family members and you want to put one in each person's room you can use them as Intercoms so that you can call them down for dinner or whatever instead of yelling throughout the house. If you want to contact family that live outside or just far from your house you can get the Echo Show so you can do video calls. No matter which Echo you get you can set up a Smart Home, but there are some Smart Home Devices that require a Hub so if you don't want to have to buy a separate Hub get the Echo Plus because it has a Hub built in. You can't go wrong with any of them.
I have an Echo Second Generation and have some hearing loss. Is there a way to get a bit more "treble" (or less bass)? I don't see any options in the Alexa software to adjust the sound.
Thanks in advance.
Some features were updated on some Echo devices. Have you tried to see, if Alexa responds to “Alexa, turn [up/down] the [bass/midrange/treble]” or “Alexa, [increase/decrease] the [bass/midrange/treble]”?
