HUAWEI’s Sub $250 Sound Joy Portable Speaker Cops Devialet Tech

French technology firm Devialet is renowned for crafting seriously high-end audio equipment with seriously high-end price tags to match. Since its inception in 2007, the brand has dished out remarkably astute releases that blur the lines between accessory and design staple, in a similar vein to Bang & Olufsen. Much like the Danish legends, however, fans of Devialet have been unable to indulge in the technology without forking out a hefty sum. Thanks to a new partnership with consumer electronics company HUAWEI, that barrier to entry has finally been lifted. Following the launch of its HUAWEI Sound release in March, HUAWEI has announced Sound Joy, a portable speaker co-engineered by Devialet that arrives for a fraction of the French brand’s usual cost.

Designed to be used on the go, the HUAWEI Sound Joy features a vibrant woven fabric design that offers an IP67 dust and water resistance. According to the brand, this means the new portable speaker will be able to tackle everything the environment can throw at it, from sand and dust to seawater and campfire smoke. The new speaker also cops an impressive 26-hour playback and comfortably fits into a bike bottle holder, but that’s not really what has got fans hot under the collar.

Taking the audio quality to a completely new level, the Sound Joy is backed by Devialet’s four-unit setup. Adopting a two-way speaker system, the co-engineered speaker produces loud high frequencies and deep bass at a high volume, courtesy of a dual tweeter and speaker structure. This setup allows for improved mids and lows that when combined, produce clearer and “more penetrating” audio. Further to that, the Diavelet Push-Push passive radiator arrives with two diaphragms placed back to back to offset sound waves for clearer and distortion-free sounds.

On the connectivity side of the equation, HUAWEI has stepped up to the plate, backing Sound Joy with a number of interesting adaptive features. One-Touch Transfer allows music sharing by NFC and Shake Stereo Link Up lets two units of HUAWEI Sound Joy pair and connect to form a stereo system. Throw in voice assistant, automatic discovery and 40W fast charging that hits a full charge in just three hours, and you start to see the benefits of collaboration at play.

For all the HUAWEI Sound Joy’s big ticket features, the consumer electronic brand’s most impressive feat has been keeping the price down. Priced at $229, the new Diavelet co-engineered portable speaker offers an incredible value-for-money release, backed by one of the biggest and most revered in the game. If you’ve been waiting to upgrade but weren’t keen on forking out a week’s wages, the Sound Joy might just be your best bet. The new HUAWEI Sound Joy will be available for purchase in Australia from 2 May 2022.
