Devialet is a pioneering technology brand providing access to the best sound in the world. Built on proprietary sound processing technology, Devialet exclusively designs and engineers all of its own hardware and software in France
Founded in 2007 and based in Paris, Devialet is the premier start-up in the world for the excellence of its inventions in the sound field. It holds 107 patents and has been recognised with 61 international awards.
Devialet is a rapidly expanding company, doubling its turnover every year and currently employing 230 staff. It counts Bernard Arnault, Jean- Antoine Granjon, Xavier Niel et Marc Simoncini amongst its early stage investors. The start-up is present in exclusive stores around the world including Colette, Harrods, and Kadewe in Berlin. The revolutionary connected speaker Phantom has been available in Apple Stores since December 2015.
With its place as an industry leader only 5 years after the launch of the first D-Premier speaker, the brand has been able to keep true to its initial values, dear to the heart of its 3 founders, the engineer Pierre-Emmanuel Calmel, the visionary entrepreneur Quentin Sannié and the designer of note Emmanuel Nardin. The Enlightenment Philosophy, the principle that scientific progress makes man better, is at the heart of this story. Success has indeed been possible thanks to the succession of radical inventions in sound engineering, most notably, ‘ADH intelligence’ – the revolutionary technology that transformed the amplification of sound by enabling a hybrid mix of digital and analog electronics.
Seventy sound engineers, mechanics, electricians, and IT engineers in signal processing, the best in their field, work every day at Devialet to invent the sound technologies of the future.
Devialet succesfully raised investment of over a $100 million in 2016.
