HUAWEI Sound X

The HUAWEI Sound X, the all-new Huawei-Devialet joint wireless speaker was unveiled together with the HUAWEI P40 Series that was announced earlier in the year. This new audio product is going to revolutionise high-end acoustic technology with sonorous audio that leaves an enduring, life-altering impression on the listener. It is the first-ever dual-subwoofer Hi-Fi speaker, co-designed with French audio brand Devialet with premium hardware, a stylish exterior, and next-level software.

This is the first top-notch wireless speaker from Huawei, the Chinese telecommunications giant, its arrival marking the start of a new era for premium audio and speaker design, characterised by deep evoking sound that lingers while you listen. The HUAWEI Sound X is a marriage of first-rate aesthetics with exquisite craftsmanship, recognised by the 2020 German iF Design Award committee for its stunning appearance.

Huawei and Devialet Collaboration

HUAWEI Sound X is the fruit of both technological heavyweights, Huawei and Devialet collaboration on their strengths and expertise.

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® (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.

iF Design-winning Sound X

The HUAWEI Sound X has a sleek black body, with a meticulous coating of premium, impact-resistant polycarbonate material to ensure optimal durability. The lower portion of the speaker is encased by a cover with dust-proof and splatter-proof properties.

The HUAWEI Sound X incorporates dual subwoofers that deliver 60W of booming bass, while remaining compact and portable for every day, all-purpose use. The innovative, visible bass unit also creates a lasting visual impression to pair with the resonance of the audio.

Wireless, Lossless Audio Transmission and Multi-Device Control Panel

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, can transmit high-quality audio whether online or local from Sound X speaker to HUAWEI Smartphone.

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. You can also cover the top with your hand to mute the speaker, similar to the ambient sound mode on noise canceling earphones.

Pricing and Availability

The HUAWEI Sound X is available at a retail price of S$498 in all Huawei Concept Stores, Huawei official online stores in Lazada and Shopee as well as authorised retailers including Best Denki, Challenger, COURTS and Harvey Norman.

Every purchase of the HUAWEI Sound X is covered with a one-year warranty, terms and conditions apply.

CES 2019 was recently held earlier in the month of January 2019, from 8th to 11th January at Las Vegas, Nevada. I had shared a few articles on them and this would be a continuation of some of the products that were showcased during CES 2019. The next brand and products from CES 2019 that I would like to share is by X-mini and their three new portable bluetooth portable speakers, the X-mini™ TWISX™, X-mini™ CLICK 3 and X-mini™ SUPA 2.

X-mini is well known portable speaker brand in the world with its iconic capsule speaker designs.

Their X-mini™ TWISX™ looks futuristic, their X-mini™ CLICK 3 is like the iconic capsule design of X-mini that most folks would associate with and finally, their X-mini™ SUPA 2 looks really cool with their retro design!

Let me share more details and information on the three new portable bluetooth speakers by X-mini that were announced during CES 2019:

Hoong He Hin, Chief Executive Officer of X-mini, says: “This year, in line with our tagline ‘Beyond Sound’, X- mini aims to humanise technology, fusing technology and material for a unique sensorial sound experience. We want to deliver a holistic sound experience for music lovers, not only through audio, but also by invoking other senses like sight and touch. As such, we’ve included design details to help them enjoy seeing and touching our products, as well as hearing them. Our three new X-mini speakers deliver X-mini’s signature clear sound, and all in compact designs which make it easy for music lovers to enjoy their tunes anywhere.” 

X-mini™ TWISX™

‘For Twisted Fun Everywhere’ 

The everyday portable Bluetooth speaker for robust, clear sound 

With its unique cylindrical design and compact form factor, the new X-mini TWISX stands out from the crowd. It delivers heavy music performance, but is also lightweight at only 383g. Its ergonomically curved grip design with textured grooves allows the perfect grip in your hand, so you can carry the portable X-mini TWISX with you anytime. It is IPX5 certified and water-resistant, and its splash-proof design makes it a welcome addition at pool parties and outdoor gatherings. 

The X-mini TWISX uses the X-mini Proprietary TWISX™ Control: a single swivel nub designed to deliver a superior sound experience with an effortless twist of the hand. Twist and hold its knob to the left and right to skip to previous and next tracks, or press down once to pause or play music. You can also twist knobs to the left and right, to control music volume. 

Powered by a 12-watt triple driver system in a precision space design, the X-mini TWISX delivers a powerful, robust sound performance everywhere you go. Designed for optimum sound delivery, its compact speaker body makes efficient use of space, housing its triple driver system which consists of two 50mm active drivers and a 50mm x 120mm passive radiator driver. 

The X-mini TWISX also has two pre-set EQ settings: Vocal and X.Bass. Boost X-mini’s signature clear sound by choosing the X.Bass EQ setting at a click of a button, or double-click the same button to activate True Wireless Stereo pairing. 

To help you share your music everywhere, the X-mini TWISX can be used horizontally or vertically, allowing for flexibility whether you’re travelling, or listening to music outdoors or at home. The X-mini TWISX can also fit into most bicycle water bottle cages for easy transportation. Its multi-function tilt stand is designed at a 26-degree angle, for a maximised sound experience. It is also True Wireless Stereo enabled, offering robust stereo quality sound performance with left and right channel stereo sound when two X-mini TWISX units are paired together. 

X-mini™ CLICK 3

‘Made For Selfies’ 

The ultra portable Bluetooth speaker with X-mini’s signature clear sound 

Lightweight, fun-sized and splash-proof, the new ultra portable X-mini CLICK 3 is ready to travel anywhere with you. Weighing just 92g and fitting easily in the palm of your hand, it offers a big, full sound experience with its large 40mm driver. 

True to its name, the X-mini CLICK 3 is perfect for taking selfies: it’s designed with a camera-inspired shutter release button, just like traditional film cameras. Hold up the X-mini CLICK 3 and double-click the remote shutter to take pictures, and complete your selfie experience with an LED light burst effect, which mimics the flash burst of a camera. 

The X-mini CLICK 3 is ergonomically designed so its curved shape fits snugly in your palm, without restricting sound quality. It offers a better grip when taking pictures, thanks to its waterproof silicone wrist strap, and also has an anti-slip silicone base to keep the X-mini CLICK 3 firmly in place when music is playing. 

Enjoy up to 6 hours of playback time when out and about with the X-mini CLICK 3, which is powered by a 400mAh battery. With its IPX4 rating, it is also splash resistant and rain-proof, so you can take it along easily on your travels. You can also enjoy a True Wireless Stereo sound experience when you pair two X-mini CLICK 3 units together. 

The X-mini CLICK 3 also has a playful element in the form of tri-color LED lights: a red light for charging, blue light for Bluetooth pairing and a white light for its light burst effect mode when taking pictures. It also has a built-in microphone for hands-free calls everywhere you go. 

X-mini™ SUPA 2

‘The Vintage-Inspired Home Stereo’

Customise your audio experience with the X-mini SUPA 2’s 3 preset EQs – Clarity, Vocal or X.Bass – to get the best of your music. Its multi-functional handle and tilt stand can be set at 30 degrees, the angle designed to deliver the perfect sound experience for you. The handle and tilt stand can also be converted to a carrying arm, so you can bring your music anywhere you go. Powered by a 5,200 mAh battery, the X-mini SUPA 2 offers up to 8 hours of playback time, making it ideal for a relaxing night of music with loved ones.

It automatically powers on or off when the magnetic remote is lifted off the speaker or placed back in position, and controls basic playback functions, volume control, EQ modes and the answering of phone calls.

Ultimate Ears WONDERBOOM Freestyle Review

The Ultimate Ears WONDERBOOM Freestyle series belong to a family of Ultimate Ears portable music players, trendy, colourful, portable, pretty good sound quality packed inside them. Over the years, I had seen, tried, tested and reviewed a few of the Ultimate Ears portable music players such as the Ultimate Ears Roll, Megaboom and Mini Boom.

What are some of my views and thoughts on the Ultimate Ears WONDERBOOM Freestyle when I was reviewing it? Today, I am going to share my experiences and review on the Ultimate Ears WONDERBOOM Freestyle. Let me share with you the notes/points that I wrote during the review:

  • Trendy, colourful, artistic designs
  • Small, lightweight, portable, easy to carry around
  • Ideal if u want to bring it for travel overseas
  • Good for long driving road trips
  • There is a tough nylon string on the WONDERBOOM Freestyle that you can hook on to your backpack with a carabiner
  • Excellent and ideal for gatherings
  • Easy to pair via Bluetooth, seamless and smooth
  • Solid bass, not too heavy and strong
  • Treble, sharp and clear
  • Although it is a small package, possess good quality sound
  • 360 degrees of sound
  • Battery life is good, close to 10 hours of battery life
  • Waterproof – IPX7 rated

An ideal and fun travel accessory

When the Ultimate Ears WONDERBOOM Freestyle was available for review, it coincides with my travel holiday to Hoi An and Da Nang, Vietnam. I brought it along for my holiday trip with my friends, providing us with music from our Spotify accounts played with the WONDERBOOM Freestyle bluetooth wireless speaker when we were traveling to Hoi An from Da Nang International Airport.

During our holiday stay,  we played music with the WONDERBOOM Freestyle in our hotel room while we enjoyed our supper, drinks and playing cards. I also brought it out to the Hoi An Old Town, when we sat down at a café by the river, playing music, enjoying the coffee and watching locals and tourists in action!

This particular series of Ultimate Ears WONDERBOOM Freestyle collection has a few different designs and I chose the Patches design for my review. What does Patches represent, it’s about, “You wear your heart on your sleeve and plaster your personality through patches and pins. Patches is a punch of personality to denim.”

Maybe it’s an omen, maybe it’s fated, there was a big Dragon lantern along the river of Hoi An Old Town when we were there and the ABC design has a dragon on it too! Therefore, on one of the nights in Hoi An, I brought the WONDERBOOM Freestyle to pay pilgrimage to the big Dragon!

My Ultimate Ears WONDERBOOM Freestyle review has been an interesting and fun time with my travel holiday overseas. If you are keen to own a portable and lightweight wireless music player, that has pretty good sound quality, as well as trendy and colourful, do check out the Ultimate Ears WONDERBOOM Freestyle.

I would like to thank Logitech for the opportunity to review the Ultimate Ears WONDERBOOM Freestyle bluetooth wireless music speaker.

UE Roll Review

The Ultimate Ears UE ROLL was recently introduced in an earlier post on my site here. During a recently Logitech Singapore event, I had a short hands on with it on the capabilities of the UE ROLL and decided to take it for a short testing and do a review of the UE ROLL.

IMG_0937

During the event, I had a first hand look at how the UE ROLL reacted when it was placed inside a water tank filled with water. While I can’t hear the music when it was submerged, we can see the vibrations coming out from the UE ROLL because the music was still playing! Yes, it’s amazing and the UE ROLL is a portable and versatile portable speaker for your outdoor activities, you can bring it swimming or to the great outdoors!

When I tested the UE ROLL at home, it provided me with a nice set of music speakers for my home usage. Here are my thoughts and views of the UE ROLL

Pros

  • Bright, colourful and vibrant
  • Lightweight and easy to carry around in your bag
  • An elastic cord for you to hook up the UE ROLL to your bag or yourself and carry the UE ROLL around
  • Pretty nice bass sound
  • Sturdy and well built
  • Pair it with another UE ROLL and it becomes a good two speakers system
  • Ideal for use in your home and outdoors, parties and events.
  • Dedicated smartphone app to connect/pair up/control a (single/duo) UE ROLL

Cons

  • The shape and design of UE ROLL is interesting yet odd, some may like this unique shape and design, some may not like it.

If you are looking for a trendy and colourful portable wireless music speaker that is not too heavy, I would like to recommend the UE ROLL to you and take a look!

* I would like to thank Logitech Singapore and SPRG for the opportunity to review the UE ROLL *

UE MEGABOOM Review

The UE MEGABOOM that I wrote and shared recently here not too long ago, I had the opportunity to test it out and review this portable speaker for two weeks. When I received the UE MEGABOOM box package, it was nicely designed, well thought out and looks cool! I put the UE MEGABOOM to the test, playing youtube videos and short movie clips from my MacBook Pro.

Here are my thoughts and views from my short stint with the UE MEGABOOM

Pros

  • The UE MEGABOOM as the name suggests, really gives it a Mega Boom with its bass and sound for its size and form!
  • Surround sound effect
  • Pair it with another UE MEGABOOM and this will give you a nice 2 way speaker surround sound system for you to play music or watch a movie
  • Ideal for use at your home parties or outdoor picnics/parties/events
  • Dedicated smartphone app to connect/pair up/control a (single/duo) UE MEGABOOM
  • Bright, colourful and vibrant
  • Sturdy and well built

Cons

  • If you are planning to carry it out in your bag, it might not be that portable and lightweight
