Crin has published new headphone measurements. Interesting to compare Deva with others. Here is comparison with Ananda(red color)

Still have this lingering chemical smell coming out of my DEVA after 2 months of ownership. Quite disturbing, distracting and disappointing.

I have been listening to the Deva for about 3 weeks now.
I was initially impressed but somehow...with burn in, it seems the bass has become lacking somewhat.
I switched from my dragonfly black to an E30 + JDS Atom stack and there have been improvements, but not in the bass department.
Strangely, it seems to me that they have started outputting less bass.
Compared to them, my SHP9500 provide noticeably more bass.
You really don't notice the bass on a song unless it is a good 20db higher than other frequencies.
Anyone else experiencing this ? Maybe it's because the pads have started softening...

Not so I've noticed, bass remains. If anything I'd say it's improved a touch.

Does the red charging light ever go out? I have had mine plugged in for several hours and it still glowing red. Thanks

As per Hifiman;
"To charge, connect the USB charging cable to the power supply and Bluemini then it will charge automatically. It can be charged when switched off. The light will remain red. When turned on the light will flash red and white while charging and once fully charged the light will flash green and white.

Just turn it on with the charger connected it the LED should flip to green. Mine is currently fully charged, turning off and connecting the charger the LED is a solid green. Might be related to USB C and the charger, Hifiman did update the Bluemini's firmware a few months back as well. (May 15). I cant remember exactly if the LED flips to green once fully charged.

Thank you so much. I just recently took them out of the box and haven’t had a chance to read the manual yet. A brief listen makes me think it is a killer value.

Deva certainly is for the asking price and offers a great deal of utility, given they are wired, USB DAC & LDAC BT capable.

Quick update, just put my set on charge and the light flipped to green after a few minutes. Shouldn't take very long to charge even from flat say around 45 minutes to full.

While I wait for the blue mini to be replaced, I am listening to my pair in wired mode. They sound fantastic at lower volumes and don‘t seem to lose anything in the presentation. The only other headphone I have that performs like this are my ThinkSound On2. Awesome, as I typically listen at lower volumes to save what is left of my olden, golden ears. We have a winner!!
