Since it only comes from left side, I doubt its the driver's ability to not keep up with it. It's I'd say 75% likely it's a piece of hair stuck in the driver casing that's starting to vibrate heavily with certain bassfrequencies making that distorted sound. I get that all the time  with my Q40 due to my bassheavy setup.

Thanks for the link/review. Do you think the size of the ear cups on the professional is similar to those of the "larger" classic or more like the size of the original spirit one?  Could you give ~size measurements?

No problem. Pro & Classic are both bigger than the spirit one, and have the same size.

Thanks, I had been debating between either the Classic or the Pro and decided to go with the Pro. It arrived today! I'm looking forward to getting these new phones a little broken in.

If anybody wants Focal Spirit Ones in white for a good price, I have a brand new in the box pair that I would never be using.

 

Just throwing it out there for those seeking a deal.

How do the Focal Spirit Pro's sound for rap/hiphop music, vocals, and dubstep? Also, how well do they perform for gaming?

I'd like to know if anyone knows about diferences or have had the opportunity to compare the Focal Spirit One, Focal Spirit Classic and Focal Spirit Pro; against some other headphones like the Grado sr325i, PSB M4RU-1, NAD VISO HP 50.

 

Thanx!
