Huawei Teams Up With Devialet to Debut Sound X Speaker
The Huawei Sound X is a product that will revolutionise high-end acoustic technology with sonorous audio that leaves an enduring, life-altering impression on the listener. It is the first-ever dual-subwoofer Hi-Fi speaker, co-designed with French audio brand Devialet with premium hardware, a stylish exterior, and next-level software.
The arrival of the Huawei Sound X represents a new era for premium audio and speaker design, characterised by deeply evocative sound that lingers while you listen. And it marries first-rate aesthetics with exquisite craftsmanship, and has been recognized by the 2020 German iF Design Award committee for its stunning appearance.
This collaboration leverages the strengths of both technological heavyweights: the speaker comes equipped with Devialet’s patented signal-processing SAM (Speaker Active Matching) technology, and iconic Push-Push symmetrical structure, faithfully rendering music with an audiophile’s attention to detail, within an impact-resistant form.
The Sound X dazzles within any room, as well as any sound field. It features a sleek black body, with a meticulous coating of premium, impact-resistant polycarbonate material to ensure optimal durability. The lower portion of the speaker is encased by a cover with dust-proof and splatter-proof properties. The buttons at the top are encircled by an RGB ring indicator that adjusts to account for the speaker’s operations. Set against the black body, the multi-colour indicator is designed for enhanced visual comfort.
The wireless speaker incorporates dual subwoofers that deliver 60W of booming bass, while remaining compact and portable for every day, all-purpose use. The innovative, visible bass unit also creates a lasting visual impression to pair with the resonance of the audio.
The Sound X has also been designed to facilitate seamless interaction with the smart devices in the listener’s vicinity. Like playing audio via Wi-Fi, a process that leads to much less data compression, and fewer lag or latency issues than Bluetooth transmission. This is built on Huawei’s self-developed technology—EMUI 10.1 Multi-Device Control Panel which is similar to Apple’s Airplay, which can transmit high-quality audio whether online or local from the speaker to a Huawei Smartphone.
The speaker also has the “Huawei Share” function, which saves users the hassle of waiting for a wireless or Bluetooth connection to establish. Instead, you can simply tap your phone’s NFC area against the Sound X, and velvety surround sound will begin to play without delay. Or to answer calls on your Sound X, just switch on call mode, with a tap of your hand. You can also cover the top with your hand to mute the speaker, similar to the ambient sound mode on noise-cancelling earphones.
The Huawei Sound X is available from now at a retail price of $$498 in all Huawei Concept Stores, Lazada and Shopee as well as authorised retailers including Best Denki, Challenger, COURTS and Harvey Norman.
