HIFIMAN has announced the new DEVA, a high-fidelity open-back planar magnetic headphone that is available with a Bluetooth/USB dongle for wirelessly streaming true high-res audio.

DEVA is one of the company’s new breed of Advanced Active Headphones (AAH) that bring true high-fidelity output to personal audio products through the use of top-shelf components,.

Balanced Sources

Its user-replaceable 3.5mm balanced input allows for increased power levels and stereo separation when using balanced sources, yet it will extract the best sonics from almost any source, including smartphones, digital audio players, and laptop computers. An included 6.5mm makes it equally compatible with advanced desktop amplifiers.

“Like its predecessor, ANANDA-BT, the DEVA raises the bar for wireless audio but at a moderate price point,” said Dr. Fang Bian, Founder and CEO, HIFIMAN Electronics. “No matter if it is used with a wired or wireless connection, DEVA will outperform every headphone in its price class, every time.”

Bluetooth Dongle

The Bluetooth dongle turns DEVA into a powerful wireless headphone. The dongle supports such advanced high-resolution codecs as LDAC and aptX-HD, making it well-suited to most currently available high-definition streaming devices. Playback time is rated at approximately four hours per charge.

In addition to its wireless connectivity, the Bluetooth dongle can be used as a powerful integrated DAC/amp for audiophile-grade performance from smartphones and other low-power devices, simply by connecting a USB-C cable. A built-in amplifier module provides up to 1 watt per channel, and there’s a two-channel high-fidelity DAC/filter.

Planar Magnetic

As a direct descendant of the Susvara and HIFIMAN’s other advanced planar magnetic headphones, DEVA utilizes the company’s Super Nano Diaphragm: a nano-thick diaphragm. The frequency response is 20Hz-20kHz, sensitivity is 93.5dB, and impedance is 18 ohms.

HIFIMAN’s DEVA will be available in March at a suggested retail price of $299.
