Huawei announced today the new Huawei-Devialet joint wireless speaker -- the HUAWEI Sound X.
As the first wireless speaker product from the Chinese telecommunications giant, the HUAWEI Sound X combines aesthetics with craftsmanship. The Sound X has been designed to facilitate interaction with the smart devices in the listener's vicinity. Gently tapping your phone against the Sound X transmits audio to the speaker. The lossless, low-latency audio can be further bolstered by a proprietary EMUI 10.1 multi-device control panel, Huawei's equivalent of Apple's AirPlay, when it is transmitted from the new Huawei P40 smartphone.
The speaker was designed by Huawei and the Devialet audio brand. It comes
equipped with Devialet's patented signal-processing SAM (Speaker Active Matching) technology, and iconic Push-Push symmetrical structure, rendering music with an audiophile's attention to detail.
SAM introduces an efficient compensation algorithm that is capable of adapting output signal to match the specific characteristics of the speaker, and minimizing sound distortion. The Push-Push structure places the two high-power speakers symmetrically, so that their back wave vibrations cancel each other out. This means even when the walls are shaking from the thundering bass tones, the Sound X body remains as cool as a cucumber.
The design for HUAWEI Sound X forms features a sleek black body. The main, glossy portion of the body is crafted through use of a non-conductive vacuum electroplating process, to ensure quality signal transmission and reception. The lower portion uses a seamless cover that further facilitates lossless transmission. The RGB tri-color indicator light on the top surface seemingly blends the emitted light with its surroundings, for a kaleidoscopic display.
The HUAWEI Sound X incorporates dual subwoofers that deliver 60W of bass, while remaining compact and portable for every day, all-purpose use.
The speaker plays audio via Wi-Fi, a process that leads to much less data compression, and fewer lag or latency issues than Bluetooth transmission. That is built on HUAWEI's self-developed technology - EMUI 10.1 Multi-Device Control Panel, which is similar to Apple's Airplay, as it can transmit high-quality audio whether online or local from Sound X speaker to HUAWEI Smartphone. Pull up the main menu of a smartphone, choose Sound X to playback any lossless audio from device, and improve its listening experience. This feature is planned to launch this summer.
The speaker also packs 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 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.
