Devialet’s Phantom speaker is considered a grail for most audiophiles, and the same applies to most of its premium products, but there’s one gadget the brand is yet to put into fruition until now: a portable speaker. The market for portable listening devices is overflowing, but it will be hard to top this brand-new option from the French manufacturer.
Sonically, the Mania offers refined 360-degree sound through a quartet of full-range drivers and a pair of woofers. With a whopping 95dB maximum sound level and sprawling 30hz-20khz frequency response, you can immerse in your favorite albums deep as you see fit for up to 10 hours or more when utilizing its wireless charging dock. The sophisticated smart speaker’s adaptive soundstage automatically tunes itself based on where you place it, paving the way for an adjustable listening experience that is difficult to replicate.
As you may have expected, the Mania is built for the streaming age, allowing you to connect via Wi-Fi and utilize AirPlay 2 or Spotify Connect to achieve seamless music at the push of a button. On that note, the device also features Alexa built-in tech for hands-free listening. Lastly, the splashproof speaker is IP-X4 rated, so you do not need to worry about taking it poolside or through a drizzle.
The Devialet Mania is available on the brand’s webshop in three colors for $790
