Huawei & Devialet Join Forces For A Beautiful Hi-Fi Smart Speaker

Dec 2, 2019

Category: Tech

Premium audio outfit, Devialet has been cooking up its high-end speakers and amplifiers since 2007, though more recently the French company has begun looking to break into new, previously untapped regions and sectors by licensing their advanced tech to established, third party manufacturers. Devialet’s first foray into this collaborative realm consists of a new smart speaker, created in partnership with Chinese multinational tech firm, Huawei.

Dubbed the Sound X, the sleek little speaker is being sold solely under the Huawei banner and, at least for the time being, is exclusive to Huawei’s native Chinese market. Sporting a pill-shaped profile — not too dissimilar to the Echo Studio — the Sound X packs a 60W Dewar dual-subwoofer setup that projects 360-degree sound as loud as 93dB. Half-a-dozen internal microphones afford the speaker voice-control functionality, and Huawei has designed the transducer to pair with its phones, as well as the company’s HiLink platform. And, despite boasting Devialet tech and componentry, the Sound X — which is currently available for preorder — is priced at a markedly more accessible point than existing high-fidelity offerings from the French speaker purveyors with an MSRP of 1,999 Chinese Yuan — which translates to just under $285.
