Focal Spirit One Headphones

post #1 of 322
Thread Starter 

There are sure a lot of head-fiers who know the Focal for its speakers. I think this is the first time Focal brings out a headphone, the Spirit One. They will cost 199€ and I think they will be available in the end of the year.

 

Here is a pic:

Me too. Yesterday I listened to some 3000€+ Focal speakers. It was great.

Haha, nice one. Focal is known for making some very good and expensive speaker drivers though. I think they've used poisonous metals like beryllium for cone material.

Yeah the Utopia Be's by Focal have those.

 

Focal and Rainbow both make super high end speakers and I think they make the best stuff if you're trying to get into super high end...

 

Right now I think Hertz is reigning champ for car speakers in terms of price/performance...

 

I have no doubt these are going to sound amazing

It's the future in many ways - i was reading this 'never ending' thread the other night on some site

lamenting how smaller living spaces and convenience is threatening to kill off the big, Hi-Fi setup

amongst audiophiles. The super high end setup will always remain, but those afflicted with small

living conditions and the ones that want portability in a setup will always turn to a headphone.

 

Another thing that Focal are doing is getting into Wi-Fi and integrating smaller packages like

the SuperBird 2.1 system.

I had expectations for studio/monitor hps from Focal.

The more time that is spent on R&D and engineering, the more likely they will sound like rubbish because it takes three seconds to know if something sounds right and the rest of the time spent is most likely the "engineers" disappearing up their own arses.
