HUAWEI Sound X Unveiled with the P40, Taking Hi-End Audio to Lofty Heights
PARIS, March 26, 2020 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

The P40 celebrated its global debut at an online product release event for 
Huawei's Consumer Business Group on March 26, 2020, alongside the all-new 
Huawei-Devialet joint wireless speaker -- the HUAWEI Sound X -- a product that 
is sure to revolutionize high-end acoustic technology with sonorous audio that 
leaves an enduring, life-altering impression on the listener.

As the first top-notch wireless speaker product from the Chinese 
telecommunications giant, the HUAWEI Sound X marries first-rate aesthetics with 
exquisite craftsmanship, and has been recognized by the 2020 German iF Design 
Award committee for its stunning appearance. The Sound X has also been designed 
to facilitate seamless interaction with the smart devices in the listener's 
vicinity. Gently tapping your phone against the Sound X transmits audio to the 
speaker, providing a new layer of emotional immersion for the music that you 
love. 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 P40.

The arrival of the HUAWEI Sound X represents a new era for premium audio and 
speaker design, characterized by deeply evocative sound that lingers while you 

A Delightfully Disruptive, Joint Huawei-Devialet Effort

From phonographs to digital recorders, vinyl records to online music streaming, 
or traditional playback to Bluetooth transmission, audio technology has been 
the source of relentless innovation. However, due to soaring demand for premium 
sound quality across a wider frequency range that faithfully reproduces the 
spirit of the original recording, the next paradigm for audio has stayed 
elusively just outside of listening range. That is, until the release of the 
HUAWEI Sound X, the fruit of Huawei and Devialet's collaboration, which 
leverages the strengths of both technological heavyweights.

Devialet is a top-three global audio brand that enjoys unique reputation for 
its premium High-Fidelity products. The company has garnered 76 awards and 160 
technology patents, and cemented its position as a leader in acoustics, with 
inventive products that boast thunderous power and unparalleled performance 
within a limited-sized body, while suppressing background noise to a remarkable 
degree, providing distortion-free sound even at maximum volume levels and 
low-pitched vibrations that can literally be felt in the listener's bones.

The HUAWEI Sound X comes equipped with Devialet's patented signal-processing 
SAM(R) (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.

SAM(R) introduces an efficient compensation algorithm that is capable of 
adapting output signal to match the specific characteristics of the speaker, 
and minimizing sound distortion. As a result, listening on the Sound X provides 
for total immersion, transporting you to the scene that the music evokes in the 
mind's eye. 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.

iF Design-winning Sound X: All Eyes and Ears

As a recent recipient of the iF Design award, the HUAWEI Sound X dazzles within 
any room, as well as any sound field. The design for HUAWEI Sound X forms 
features a sleek black body, for robust sound that seems to emanate from a 
bottomless well. The main, glossy portion of the body is crafted through use of 
an advanced non-conductive vacuum electroplating process, to ensure quality 
signal transmission and reception. The lower portion uses a seamless cover that 
further facilitates free, lossless transmission. The RGB tri-color indicator 
light on the top surface seemingly blends the emitted light with its 
surroundings, for a kaleidoscopic display that is reminiscent of a glamorous 
music hall.

Wireless home speaker brands often try to maintain bass performance by making 
their products large and unwieldy. The HUAWEI Sound X represents an elegant 
solution to this dilemma, incorporating dual subwoofers that deliver 60W of 
booming bass, while remaining compact and portable for every day, all-purpose 
use. The innovative, visible bass unit creates a lasting visual impression to 
pair with the resonance of the audio.

Multi-Device Control Panel: Wireless, Lossless Audio Transmission

The HUAWEI Sound X 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. (Note: It 
is planned to launch this summer 2020)

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 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.
