No.... They both have issues recognizing with loud music or sounds playing. You get the same issues with the dot if your speaker is placed near it, or it's built-in speaker is turned up too high.

edit: Here's amazon's placement guide for alexa devices:
> Place your Alexa device in an ideal location

> Make sure your Alexa device is at least eight inches away from walls or other objects that may cause interference (such as microwave ovens or baby monitors).

> If your Alexa device is on the floor, move it to a higher location.

Echo requires more power to power the built-in speaker. They could have opted for USB c but that wasn't a standard when it came out. Google home also uses a proprietary ac adapter, and it came out this year. They also both don't have a 3.5mm because they were designed to be used with the built in speaker that actually sounds good.

Really neither is better than the other, they're designed for different purposes. One is for voice controlled, loud, high-fidelity music playing speaker in one package and another for a low cost have an echo in every room to control your house. (Gen 1 echo dot was a limited manufacturing run, so they limited it to existing echo users to buy. It's a higher quality build too. uses american TI SoC, has stereo speakers (ones from smartphones), has the volume ring from big sister echo, so it was more expensive as well.) (Gen2 is plastic, has buttons for volume control, has a really cheap mono speaker (one you find in a child's toy), uses chinese Mediatek SoC - this is why the price is so low.)

You might want to clean the microphones of the echo (not with compressed air, use something like blutack to remove the dust. be careful and don't use too much pressure. you don't want to get blutack stuck in the hole.), and also unplug and let it sit for a few minutes if you need to shout it at it in a quiet room. That's not normal.

u/nickhollidayco · 18 pointsr/StonerEngineering

Not OP but I’m assuming It’s the putty stuff you stick posters up with - “blue/blu tack” is the branded Aussie nomenclature (think Kleenex for facial tissue).

u/Sneeko · 10 pointsr/DIY

Blu-Tack is what you need. This is pretty much exactly what it's designed for.

Blu-Tack Reusable Adhesive 75g

This stuff is great for figures. It doesn't stain and it is pretty good at holding stuff in. I use it all the time with Figmas and nendos, when scales won't stay on there stands, and for BJDs

  • Seconding /u/joefraz78's recommendation for a headboard. Or, think about upgrading your frame at some point to a something with a headboard; wood could look nice and you could eventually update your other pieces to go with it.

  • Since your bedframe is very utilitarian, and you're storing stuff under it, consider a bedskirt, or a blanket that's one size up from your bed (looks like a full, so a queen blanket).

  • If it wouldn't stick out too far for your tastes, consider rotating the bed 90 degrees so that your head is on the same wall as the dresser, leaving space between the side of the bed and the wall for your nightstand. It will look more intentional and make it easier to make the bed/change the sheets. It might even work slightly better with your TV location.

  • Lighting makes a huge difference. Overhead tends to be the harshest; everything looks better in a soft warm glow. Consider a lamp for your nightstand for reading and general ambiance -- this one has an interesting industrial look and isn't too cheesy. Think about adding a second lamp on top of your dresser, too.

  • If you have the budget for it, think about upgrading that TV stand. No judgment, we all had ones like that in our first apartments too! But a console style with some concealed storage would look more polished.

  • Art! Not sure if you can hang stuff on your walls, but Etsy and the internet are full of gorgeous inexpensive prints. Maps (nautical, star, vintage), minimal black-and-white photography, landscapes -- you name it, it's out there and you can order it. You can get fairly inexpensive frames at a craft store (Michaels, A.C. Moore, whatever you have where you are) to dress them up. If you can't put nails in the walls, Blu-Tack is good for hanging stuff without damaging the piece or the wall.

  • It may seem weird to put a rug on top of wall-to-wall, but it can make your room feel more put-together and cohesive. Plus, you can use it in your next place. Jute is usually pretty inexpensive and comes in various colors (in a small room I'd stick with a light color so as not to overwhelm the space).

  • Clear surfaces make a room feel calmer. If you have somewhere to store the stuff currently on top of your dresser (shoutout to a fellow Cornelia Funke fan), you'll probably feel better every time you walk in. Ditto for the nightstand; I'd tuck away everything you aren't using daily.

  • And finally, the obligatory plant recommendation. If you take some of the ideas above, you'll have a few different places you can put a plant. Succulents are almost impossible to kill.
u/Xonim · 4 pointsr/boardgames

The Blood Rage models are plastic, not resin. I'd recommend getting primer from a hobby store like Michael's or Hobby Lobby. It should be a little cheaper if you get one of their 40-50% off coupons from their websites. This should be fine. As with any primer, you'll want to spray 1-2 thin coats, preferably when the air is dry (less than 50% humidity). You won't lose any detail that way.

As for the wash, you probably could get away with 1 of those bottles. You could either order 1 and then just order another (if you're ok waiting) when/if you run out, otherwise just order 2 right away. If you ever paint other models in the future, you'll use it.

Edit: I'd also recommend getting some Blue Tack to stick on the bottom of your models so you can stick them to some cardboard. It makes it easier to bulk-prime, and if you're just using a wash on them, you don't even have to remove them from the cardboard when you do that.

u/Mekose101 · 4 pointsr/playrust

He's not talking about Tic-Tacs or metal pin "Tacks" LOL

u/wombat_tree · 4 pointsr/Warhammer

It's just this stuff, maybe it's called something else where you live but it's just something to hold the parts together in a way that can be easily removed so you can check any potential issues before you glue everything. You don't have to have it it's just more convenient than holding the parts together by hand.

Looking at the default loadout the kill teams have on GW's website as an example, I'd definitely leave the shield, the two handed hammer and the heavy flamer separate as they cover up large portions of the marines body and would make things hard to paint. The others I'd probably just paint fully assembled. It's not about how detailed they are, it's about whether or not there are parts to the model that cover up other parts and would make those parts difficult or impossible to paint.

u/SenseiSweets · 3 pointsr/minipainting

Hey all,

Been lurking on here mostly! This is my first mini, and I was wondering if you guys could help me out.

What can I do to save time (I'm working full time, and go to school full time) or speed up the process of painting miniatures? On another sub they've mentioned batch painting, is this what most of you do?
Lot on the pictures here I see the minis attached to a corkthing, how do you attach the mini to it? Blu tak?
*What is a good way to deal with minis that have hard to reach spots? Should I leave those spaces black?

u/InternetDude_ · 3 pointsr/iphone


It's a dream on AirPods too.

u/joseconseco999 · 3 pointsr/airpods

Blu-Tack Reusable Adhesive 75g

I pull off a half-inch piece and use it once a week for 4 weeks. It'll last you a lonnnnng time for almost $7.

u/johnsoto2 · 3 pointsr/airpods

My mother had both of her gen airpods go significantly quieter to literally no sound at all. Literally to the point where we were convinced that it was beyond repair. Then used Blu-Tack on both airpods and it literally goes inside the mesh and sticks to everything and gets everything out. To the point where it sounds like new. Ive been there and Blu-Tack was the solution.

u/impediment · 3 pointsr/DnD

> Put your mini on something, like in my picture it's tac'd to a piece of 1" pex. A lot of people put theirs on an old pill bottle or something. POINT IS, not to hold the mini with your hand. Keeps oils off and makes it easier to paint.

Blu-tack and a wine cork.

u/asdjfweaiv · 2 pointsr/CatsAreAssholes

I'll let you in on a little secret. Saved many a pretty thing in my house which is filled with cats:

It won't save everything, but it helps a lot.

u/adayinalife · 2 pointsr/vinyl

Sorry, yeah tape, but some tape is hard to get off in the end so you can also use some of that Command adhesive solution that they use for frames, should not damage the speakers. Alternatively I personally just used Blu Tack.

u/LaLocaChristina · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Not entering, but I strongly recommend taking blu tack to hang stuff with...

u/Think_Positively · 2 pointsr/BudgetAudiophile

Most commercially available stands will have 3M or similar two-sided adhesive. I use Blu Tack on mine, and it takes a surprising amount of force to dislodge the cabinets once they've settled. That's a US link, but I'm sure you can find it in Europe.

While I don't necessarily know what's available in your market, I will add that you should take precise measurements before buying anything. If those monitors aren't at ear-level, your sound is likely to be compromised.

u/ssl-3 · 2 pointsr/audiophile

Blu-tack, poster-tack, etc:

A few tiny balls of this stuff under any speaker will keep it from walking. It keeps a light, cast-aluminum enclosure that I have on a glass shelf from dancing, and it scales up just fine.

(It will probably stain. So will anything else with some weight on it. I've had the non-sticky side of foam weather stripping pull layers of baltic birch plywood apart before.)

u/ACleverMoose · 2 pointsr/minipainting
u/cupboard1 · 2 pointsr/NoStupidQuestions

I haven't used it but have heard good things about Blu-Tack:

u/TheWoodBotherer · 2 pointsr/DIY

Interesting project!

I take it that the whole assembly will be mounted vertically on a wall for display purposes?

Would a few unobtrusive pins/ pegs/headless nails into the backboard in strategic places to support the Games/Console work? You could colour them to match the background, or even just make them into some kind of shiny feature?

Alternatively, perhaps some transparent acrylic sheeting made into either a narrow shelf/ shelves or some clips, might be an option which would be near-invisible at any distance....

Or could you bend some thin, stiff wire/ brass rod into supports/clips and fix it to the backboard, as this might also be quite unobtrusive depending on how you do it....

Otherwise, magnets and/ or velcro might be a good 'Plan B,' although be careful when using magnets around electronics! :>)>

A really cheap temporary solution might be a big dollop of Blu-Tack (, but I'm not sure this would hold up very well over time :>)>

Hope that helps, good luck! :>)>

PS - don't forget to make the presentation frame easily openable, for when access to the Console is needed!

u/[deleted] · 2 pointsr/audiophile
Blu Tack is the preferred brand I believe. It actually has decent reviews compared to sticky tack.

u/amcfarla · 1 pointr/hometheater

For the mounting of the Elac B6, which I have a set, I am using these stands:

and then used blu-tack for adhesive for the speakers, and the speaker stand was knocked over by my mother's dogs which the speaker successfully stayed on the stand.

u/Mmnking · 1 pointr/Nexus6P

A link to blue tack? Any will do. Idk what county you're in, but in Australia you can just get it at any supermarket or general convenience store....

Found one anyway

u/gandhikahn · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Bring posters, while they may not want holes in the walls from pins you can put things up with Blu-Tack

u/mlph · 1 pointr/audiophile

You could place Blue-Tack, which is an adhesive and acoustically inert putty, between the speaker and the stand.

u/Nacho_Damn_Bidness · 1 pointr/airpods

I haven't had to use it yet, but I hear people post this product for removing debris from AirPods.

A clean toothbrush as well

u/bigbura · 1 pointr/BudgetAudiophile

I haven't used those so can't say. They do look 'fiddly' to me.

Vibrapod cones were recommended here. $8 each...

Some folks swear by a ball of blue tack instead of something ready made. I haven't used these things but they come up repeatedly in my reading.

u/-lllllllll- · 1 pointr/Cubers

Tip for people trying to do this themselves: use Blu-Tack to try out whatever positioning you want before you go crazy with superglue. It's a putty that acts as a pressure-based, reusable adhesive and will be fine for testing. You can then finalize with glue when you're ready/when you're sure you really want magnets in your cube.

u/Aranshada · 1 pointr/MouseReview

Paracord + bungee is the best. You want to find a bungee that has some weight to it (or you can just tape some additional weights, maybe some of those useless G502 weights) and a good solid base. I use a Zowie Camade, and it's actually the best bungee I've used although pretty overpriced for what it is. The Roccat Apuri is also nice, but it has USB hub functionality that lots of people won't need and won't be able to justify the price.

Worse bungee I ever used was the Razer one. No stability, no weight, just kept flopping around and sliding.

Some people just take some Blu-Tack and stick the cable to the monitor bezel. Basically has the same result.

u/engwish · 1 pointr/airpods

Yep, unfortunately that's just life with the AirPods, especially if you're going to put them in your pocket all the time.

You can use a Q-tip to get out the dust, or if you are so inclined you can use something like Blu Tack to get the dust out.

u/stoutdu · 1 pointr/hometheater

The straps are a great idea. I also heard that Blu Tack works well for that, might give that a try. Apparently this accessories4less site is pretty well known, 2nd mention in this thread. I'll give it a shot. Thanks!

u/jaidey · 1 pointr/steelseries

Spread some out over the rubber grips and press down firmly where it gets down in the grooves and then peel it off. It might take a couple applications but it leaves my grips looking brand new. Blu-tack doesn't leave any sort of sticky residue either.

u/Blue2501 · 1 pointr/EliteDangerous

Blu-tack in a few places on the bottom of the base will stick it to a desk nicely, and shouldn't leave any permanent marks on the desk or the stick.

u/eNonsense · 1 pointr/boardgames

I got here late, but one of the handiest accessories that I've picked up for board gaming recently is some blu tack.

If you've never used it, it's basically a removable sticky putty which doesn't leave a residue or stick so strongly that items will be damaged. It's great for temporarily sticking things down. You can use it for sticking down folded boards so they lay flat. You can also use it for sticking down small boards which are light or slightly warped and move or spin easily. You can also stick cards to boards, if it's something that will stay there the whole game and interaction with the card (taking pieces on & off) will cause it to move around.

u/enowapi-_ · 1 pointr/airpods

I suggest some putty and use it to grab and pull wax, dirt and grime OUT of the AirPods instead of "jamming" it down in there.

This is personally what I use. Blu-Tack Reusable Adhesive 75g

Great for cleaning out the screen filter and the tight spot just underneath, between the pod and the stem, as well as the inside lid and pod nest of the airpod case.

u/ncsupheo · 1 pointr/PlantedTank

I have 2 (three if you count our collective "work tank") and they do rattle. Worse with the lid on it. I think it's the lid that's the worst part. But i wouldn't say it's a significant amount. I sleep with my head 4 feet from my bedroom tank.

After a few weeks, a little gunk builds up and and that can really help quiet down the lid.
Try something like a few balls of blu-tack. It could really help silence a loud rattle. If it's still noisy, even without the lid, maybe try pulling out the little grey impeller guard and re-seating the impeller. But if it's just the lid rattling, you can quiet that down.

u/Wils1337 · 1 pointr/PS4Mods

So after a quick google it turns out Blue Tac is an Australian only thing lol.

' Just ask at a store for that clay stuff you tack memos and pictures up with and they should know what ya mean.'

Also known as: Plasti-Tac, Fun - Tac or Clay Strips

u/mnrun · 1 pointr/modelmakers

This is the stuff you want for masking with putty. I've tried other kinds and had problems with them leaving an oily residue, but never had that problem with Blu-Tack.

How did you airbrush the Vallejo chipping medium? I have some of that stuff and hate it hate it hate it. Like you said, it doesn't brush well. I've tried thinning it with all sorts of stuff and spraying it, or spraying it neat, high pressure, low pressure...whatever. Never found the right combination and just can't get a good even coat with it.

u/Kwazimoto169 · 1 pointr/tifu

I'm thinking you didn't have anything like Blu-Tack on hand? Not that I've had a rubber (pencil, or otherwise) stuck in my ear before, but if I did that would be one of the first extractions methods I'd try using.

u/fatcatvapor · 1 pointr/BudgetAudiophile

Blu tack. It's like blue putty. You make 4 or 5 similarly sized balls, and put them under the speaker.

u/fxakira · 1 pointr/Gunpla

You can use Blue Tack adhesive like these and put a small amount in the peg hole of the weapon to increase adhesion (I believe your MG ARF Kai has trouble holding the huge tactical arms sword?)

Per the Gundam manga series, the ideal enemy suit is the Amatsu Mina. Although I am currently having some problems finding this 1/100 NG from back in the day... Otherwise, the Blue Frame D is a fantastic choice as an antagonist suit.
