The new Deva from Hifiman is a magnetostatic headphone, wireless via Bluetooth and therefore versatile.
On Friday April 10th 2020 we held a live stream of almost four hours during which we discussed twelve headphones. We showed measurements and demonstrated to you – via a modified version of Harriëtte – how they perform. And for those of you who want an overview: here you are! Let’s have a look at […]
HIFIMAN has announced the new DEVA open headphone, a planar version with Bluetooth dongle for wireless listening.
We already saw the Hifiman Ananda BT headphones at the iEar show in November 2019; now we have the opportunity to try and test Hifiman’s Ananda Bluetooth. A bluetooth planar headphone with a price tag of € 1,200? Let’s hear it!
The Hifiman Jade II headphones are so light you won’t feel them anymore. When we turned on the music, our first impression was that speakers were playing.
Where at Level 1 we still heard significant differences between the headphones, this is mainly about nuance and taste. The measurements also show that. It will be about the match between the other devices in your system, your musical preference, the desired use. In that sense, good quality headphones are no different than speakers.
The Arya of HifiMan: noblesse in a sober jacket. For about half the price of a HE1000 you have the same technique on your ears. The Arya looks less impressive than the HE1000 and may not have the comfort of its legendary big brother, but you get a whole lot of listening pleasure in return. Everything that makes planar headphones attractive from an audio perspective is found in the Arya. Make sure you get a good match with an amplifier that has ‘balls’. Because this Arya requires quite a bit of power before she really starts singing. Once there is a match, then there is a good chance that you do not want to take off the headphones.
