Headfonia is known for their rigorously testing capabilities and this review is no exception. From the unboxing to the test for sound quality and comparison to the Ananda BT from the same company. Of course the much more expensive Ananda BT has the clear advantage over the Deva, but they have a lot of similarities.
“The highlight of the Deva, as it was with the Ananda BT, is its excellent tonal accuracy. The instruments just sound marvelous and you let yourself enjoy the music. I also liked its coherency over the whole spectrum”
The Deva made it on the Headfonia Recommended list, which makes it a clear winner! Please read the complete review of the HiFiMAN Deva on the Headfonia website.
The German magazine Stereoplay did a review of the Deva in their August 2020 edition of the magazine. One of the quotes that perfectly describes this review is:
“Large sound image, perfect balance over all frequencies, truly defines music”
