With their connectivity and ease-of-use, wireless speakers are quickly replacing traditional Hi-Fi systems as the go-to device for anyone looking to get the most out of their music. This has naturally led to more and more brands churning out all kinds of products to meet demand. To try and buck this trend, Huawei has collaborated with Devialet to launch the Sound X, a Wi-Fi speaker which claims to deliver impressive audio quality.
The audio industry has undergone massive changes over the years, but when all's said and done, a speaker is still defined by its audio quality. This basic tenet doesn't seem to be shared by all brands though, as the wireless speakers in today's market often strive for portability at the expense of audio quality. Fortunately, the HUAWEI Sound X does not fall into this trap.
Collaboration with Devialet for high quality audio all around you
Huawei has teamed up with Devialet, one of the world's leading audio brands, to provide the Sound X with two key features which raise the sound quality far above what you might expect from a wireless speaker.
With the symmetrical Push-Push acoustic configuration, each subwoofer cancels out the backwave vibrations of the other, while superimposing the sound energy from both to suppress noise and distortion at any volume, and producing larger than life sound. Then there's the SAM® (Speaker Active Matching) bass enhancement technology. This setup includes an efficient compensation algorithm which deals with any signal distortion, so low-frequency sound is completely stable. This means the Sound X can hit deeper, fuller bass tones.
The Sound X is crafted from highly magnetic rare-earth materials (NdFeB, or Neodymium Iron Boron), which contains more magnetic energy than common iron oxides. This means that even though the Sound X is compact, its speakers are remarkably sensitive and have great transient response, so the audio produced is powerful and surging.
The Sound X reproduces the vocals fantastically, giving full expression to the singer’s voice, while also giving a breathtaking mix of sounds, instruments, electronics and vocals for an audio experience like no other. The Sound X also captures the power of the drum beats and produces a layered and nuanced sound driven by surging bass.
The unit's speakers boast dual subwoofers and six full-frequency tweeters, which cover an expansive frequency range of 40 Hz to 40 kHz, complete with rich treble and details. They deliver high fidelity sound by accurately reproducing original music recordings. The HUAWEI Sound X is fitted with six powerful full-frequency tweeters, which are evenly distributed in a ring shape. This allows the HUAWEI Sound X to provide an endless immersion amidst a lush 360° sound field.
User-friendly innovations with Huawei Share1
As well as its sound quality, the HUAWEI Sound X includes a range of innovative features to address problems found all too often in wireless speakers.
Pairing your phone with most Bluetooth speakers can be a needlessly complicated and frustrating process. That's why the Sound X features Huawei Share. With this feature, you can connect your phone to the speaker by simply tapping it against the NFC icon. So when you're listening to a song on your phone, but want to get really immersed in the music, you just give the Sound X a tap with your phone, thereby initiating Huawei Share Audio Sharing for seamless music from the speaker. Sometimes when you get a call and your phone is connected to the speaker, you might end up having the whole room listening in. That is not really appreciated, which is why the HUAWEI Sound X2 not only pauses the music playback, but allows you answer the call on your phone for privacy. On the other hand if you want to switch to a speaker call, simply tap your phone on the speaker to initiate an instant connection. When you want to pause, you can cover the top of the speaker with your hand to pause it, then cover the top again to resume playing.
1. Huawei Share is only available on phones that run Android 5.1.1 or about with screen-on, that support and have enabled NFC. The feature is currently not supported via iOS.
2. Phone sharing with software upgrade planned in summer 2020
Huawei's collaboration with Devialet has paid off helping the HUAWEI Sound X deliver on all fronts: it's stunning to listen to, easy to use, and great to look at.
In addition to this, users can also enjoy their favorite music and tunes directly from HUAWEI Music, Huawei’s official music platform that has a wide range of tracks, both international and local. HUAWEI Music also has exclusive songs from top artists that will only be available on the platform before any other music service, giving users that sense of exclusivity.
