Huawei Sound Joy in the test: An attractive and inexpensive all-rounder


While Huawei has a good foothold in the tech world, they’re not particularly known for their audio products, but their offering with the Sound Joy sets them apart.

A wise move in the development of this product was partnering with Devialet, a French high-end luxury audio brand, to co-develop the speaker.

The Sound Joy bears a striking resemblance to the JBL Flip, but offers a more premium look. It also comes with RGB lighting that can be synced to the audio, but only on Android devices.

They even manage to give the rubber buttons a premium look, while the quality of the lace strap is another small detail that makes it more pleasing to the eye.

It’s a bit bigger and heavier than its competitors, but still a great speaker for indoor and outdoor use.

The NFC pairing button enables a seamless connection with a device via Bluetooth. The 5.2 speaker has great range and stability. It can survive underwater at a depth of 1 meter for over 30 minutes.

The 8800mAh battery offers 26 hours of playback, which is a huge improvement over UE Boom’s 15 hours. It also supports fast charging, which gives you 1 hour of playback in just 10 minutes. The battery will be fully charged in 3 hours.

Another useful feature is the Sound Joy’s ability to sync up with another of its kind with a simple shake.

The Huawei Sound Joy does a good job when it comes to audio performance, with its punchy bass particularly standing out. With its 20 W full-frequency speaker, 10 W silk dome tweeter and two passive radiators, it offers a powerful sound.


It’s a fantastic all round speaker packed with features and all at a very reasonable price. However, iPhone users are right to have concerns as they won’t be able to use the Sound Joy’s full potential.
