HIFIMAN Shipping Deva Wireless Headphone

HIFIMAN have launched a new budget-conscious, open-back planar-magnetic wireless headphone – the Deva – which features a TRS Bluetooth/USB (via USB-C cable–24-bit/192kHz support)/DAC/amplifier (230mW) module for on-the-go switching from wired to wireless. The new $299 USD model was originally revealed in February, but is now shipping.

With LDAC, aptX-HD, aptX, AAC and full HD compatiblity built in via the TRS module and drivers featuring HIFIMAN’s “supernano” Diaphragm (NsD), the new Deva is taking advantage of some of the latest technology in the company’s stable.

The design is an interesting one, as the DEVA is not actually a true wireless headphone. The rechargeable Bluetooth adapter which connects via 3.5mm balanced input powers the headphone and handles wireless duties. Specs on the Deva are 18-Ohms impedance, 93.5dB sensitivity and a claimed seven-10 hours of playback with each charge. The Deva follows on the previously released Ananda -BT model.

“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 of HiFiMan. “No matter if it is used with a wired or wireless connection, Deva will outperform every headphone in its price class, every time.”
