Huawei is far from being the first manufacturer to enter the wireless speaker market, but the manufacturer wants to mark the occasion with the Sound Joy designed with Devialet.
Huawei unveiled its first battery-powered Bluetooth speaker this week, the Sound Joy. At 20.2 cm tall and weighing 680 grams, the manufacturer ensures that it is as easy to carry as a water bottle with its cylindrical shape. And with a power of 79 decibels, it will be able to be heard several meters around.
Large battery for long autonomy
Huawei lands here in a particularly crowded sector, many manufacturers have entered the niche, whether Sonos, Ultimate Ears and others. To stand out from the crowd, the group worked on the Sound Joy with Devialet, whose SAM technology they incorporated for a more authentic audio rendering with minimal sound distortion. The cabinet also includes a passive Push-Push diaphragm with two diaphragms positioned back-to-back to compensate for sound waves for sharper, distortion-free sounds.
The Sound Joy also features a two-way speaker system for powerful high frequencies and deep bass, even at high volumes. There will be a tweeter and a speaker unit for midrange and bass. In terms of autonomy, the speaker promises an autonomy of 26 hours with its battery with a capacity of 8,800 mAh. It includes a 40W fast charging system (one hour of listening for 10 minutes of recharging, full charging requiring 3 hours).
Huawei has packed its speaker with “smart” functions, such as Watch Control to control playback and volume from a manufacturer’s watch, the Automatic Discovery function which allows you to configure the speaker with a tap with a smartphone or tablet, or again pairing two speakers to create a stereo pair.
The enclosure will be on sale from November 10 at a price of 149 €.
