Devialet today announces the arrival of its newest product, Devialet Mania, the company’s first portable smart speaker, promising dazzling stereo sound through luxury design.
Intelligently designed and embedding a suite of Devialet’s state-of-the-art technologies, Devialet Mania has broken down barriers for portable audio. Mania is engineered with new and existing innovations that enable the speaker to adapt sound to the space it’s in, delivering a truly liberated sound.
“Devialet is relentless in its mission to provide extraordinary sound experiences no matter where you are listening. Devialet Mania marks a major step towards that goal, bringing our proprietary technologies to a portable speaker for the very first time. Great sound has now been unleashed.”
Franck Lebouchard, Devialet’s CEO
So What Is It?
An ode to Devialet’s iconic Phantom range with its signature architecture, Devialet Mania’s spherical, polished design and luxurious woven fabric reflect the company’s commitment to bridging the gap between luxury and technological innovation. Sitting at just 170mm tall, weighing 2.3kg and with a slick handle for easy transportation, Mania is available in black and grey and meticulously designed to integrate beautifully with your surroundings whether indoors or outside. Mania Black and Grey is priced at RM4,490 each.
Extending a long-standing partnership with the Paris Opéra, the Mania range also includes a Paris Opéra edition, embellished with 24-carat moongold and including a docking station for easy charging, retailing at RM5,490. The docking station is also available separately to other Mania models for RM449.
Featuring two proprietary technologies, Devialet Mania delivers expansive 360° sound for a truly unrivalled sound experience in a compact, portable form.
ASC (Active Stereo Calibration) uses four microphones and embedded intelligence capabilities to allow Devialet Mania to automatically adapt the audio rendering to suit its surroundings. When Mania is placed in the centre of a room, 360° stereo mode is automatically activated. If positioned near a wall, two full-range speakers at the rear launch into action to seamlessly reinforce the two speakers at the front, creating an expansive, powerful soundstage for the ultimate portable listening experience.
With four full-range drivers and two SAM®-powered sub-woofers (Speaker Active Matching) in a push-push configuration, Devialet Mania delivers powerful stereo sound at frequencies as low as 30Hz and as high as 20,000 Hz, reflecting yet another feat in audio engineering by Devialet’s world-class team.
Mania is currently the only product on the portable speaker market that offers both stereo rendering and real-time acoustic mapping, which combines with the speaker’s echo-cancellation and cross-stereo architecture to offer a truly superior listening experience, anywhere, anytime.
Devialet Mania has dual streaming capabilities (Wi-Fi or Bluetooth 5.0), Spotify Connect and Airplay 2, and runs on DOS2 (via Devialet App), the same software ecosystem as Devialet Phantom and Devialet Dione.
With an IPX4 water resistance rating, ten hours of battery at moderate volume, Devialet Mania provides a smooth user experience that can be shared with whoever you’re with, wherever you need to go.
