Huawei partners with Leica for the cameras on its premium smartphones. Similarly, the company has partnered with French audiophiles Devialet for its speakers, resulting in last year’s Huawei Sound X.
Now, the China-based company has launched Huawei Sound, which is smaller than the Sound X in size but packs a four-speaker acoustic design and also offers a 360-degree ‘surround’ sound experience.
The speaker packs three full-range 5W drivers and a 4-inch 40W woofer. With Devialet’s Push-Push configuration, two passive radiators reinforce each other to counteract back wave vibrations and reduce distortion.
As per Huawei’s claims, the high-volume sessions at up to 90dB should offer distortion-less sound. It also supports several different sound settings which can be accessed through the Huawei AI Life app, including spatial sound.
It comes with Bluetooth LDAC for hi-res audio and auxiliary connections are included. It also supports a tap-to-transfer feature for sending from phone to speaker in an instant. However, the company has removed the voice assistant, so this is not a smart speaker in a traditional sense. This means that users can’t control playback with voice commands and the device can’t be used to control smart home devices.
The Huawei Sound is now available for purchase in the UK and across Europe, for a price of £199. Those who purchase the device by 13th April will get £50 off as an early bird offer.
