Following the examples of Google and Apple with their Nest Audio and HomePod Mini, Huawei announces the Huawei Sound, a smart speaker that is the compact version of an older device. In this case, it is the Huawei Sound X. But it is not to worry, the sound quality of the Huawei Sound is once again guaranteed thanks to the work of Devialet.
In terms of design, it must be said that the Huawei Sound is not too different from its older brother, the Sound X. It is just a smaller version of that. And while the size affects the power of the device Huawei has been prepared with new hardware so that the surround sound experience is equally impressive.
Huawei Sound Features
With Devialet behind the sound engineering the Huawei Sound is promised to deliver performance commensurate with the manufacturer’s reputation. Its powerful woofer has Speaker Active Matching technology that consists of synchronizing the vibrations of the woofer to reflect greater fidelity to the original recording in the reproduction.
The Huawei Sound is equipped with three tweeters that point in different directions. In this way, not only the treble also have the highest fidelity and volume, but they guarantee an enveloping sound that with the help of artificial intelligence synchronizes its vibrations to cover the largest possible dimension of the room in which this device is located.
Huawei announces the Huawei Sound at a price of € 200 for the European market. This is somewhat more expensive than we would expect for a compact device. Especially considering that the Google Nest Audio and Apple HomePod Mini, its main competitors, are both available for $ 100.
We understand that Huawei is betting on superior sound technology and the fact that the European consumer of this type of accessories is usually in a better economic position. But it still seems to us something overpriced.
