On November 16, 2022, Devialet announced the appearance of a new product “Devialet Mania”.
Sales will start on December 8, 2022.
Devialet Mania, Devialet’s first portable speaker, delivers stunning stereo sound through a luxurious design.
With Devialet Mania, Devialet Mania combines Devialet’s suite of cutting-edge technologies in an intelligent design, breaking barriers in portable audio. Designed with innovation and existing technology, Devialet Mania adapts sound to the space in which the speaker is placed for a truly unleashed sound.
Devialet CEO Franck Lebouchard said:
“Devialet Mania is an important step towards this goal, bringing our proprietary technology to a portable speaker for the first time. I’m using it.The best sound has been released.”
Master in Metamorphose: Pioneering Techniques to Create Personalized Sounds Equipped with two unique technologies, the Devialet Mania delivers 360° omnidirectional sound in a compact, portable style. It creates a truly unrivaled sound experience.
ASC (Active Stereo Calibration) uses four microphones and built-in intelligence, allowing Devialet Mania to automatically adapt its audio rendering to its surroundings.
Place the Devialet Mania in the center of the room and it will automatically activate 360 degree stereo mode.

Equipped with four full-range drivers and two push-push subwoofers equipped with SAM(R) (Speaker Active Matching), the Devialet Mania has a frequency range ranging from 30Hz to 20,000Hz. It delivers powerful stereo sound. Again, this is a feat of audio engineering by Devialet’s world-class team.
Devialet Mania is currently the only product in the portable speaker market that offers both stereo rendering and real-time acoustic mapping. Combined with echo cancellation and cross-stereo
architecture, this delivers a truly superior listening experience anytime, anywhere.
Devialet Mania pays homage to Devialet’s iconic Phantom series with its distinctive architecture. Its sophisticated spherical design and fine fabrics reflect our desire to bridge the gap between luxury and innovation. At just 170mm high and weighing 2.3kg, the Devialet Mania comes in black and gray with a stylish handle for easy portability. It has been meticulously designed to blend in perfectly with its surroundings, indoors and out.
Expanding on its long-standing partnership with the Opéra National de Paris, the Devialet Mania range also includes an Opera model clad in 24 carat moon gold and comes with a charging station for convenient docking.
The charging station is also available separately for Devialet Manias other than Opera models. 11,900 yen (tax included)
Devialet Mania features dual streaming capabilities (Wi-Fi or Bluetooth 5.0). It supports Spotify Connect and Airplay 2 and runs (via the Devialet app) on DOS2, the same software ecosystem as the Devialet Phantom and Devialet Dione.
With IPX4 water resistance, 10 hours of battery life at moderate volume, and electrostatic buttons, Devialet Mania brings a smooth user experience you can share with whoever you are with, wherever you go. Starting today, we will be accepting pre-orders for Devialet Mania. Price 139,000 yen (tax included) Deep Black / Deep Black

Its mission is to raise the position of sound in our lives.
Award-winning products such as the Expert Pro amplifier and the Phantom connected speaker incorporate numerous patented technologies. Typical examples of proprietary patents include ADH(R) (first pioneer patent filed in 2004) and SAM(R), a number of acoustic and
microelectronic technologies. ADH(R) (Analog Digital Hybrid) is a technology that works by simultaneously providing the sophistication and linearity of analog (Class A) and the power and compactness of digital (Class D). SAM(R) (Speaker Active Matching) optimizes speaker operation by measuring and converting the operation of speaker units into data.
World-class Devialet engineers use their own innovations to create an outstanding sound experience by combining unparalleled sound quality with sleek modern design.
