Just saw this on the web. I love Focal speakers so I hope their headphones are as good.
September 2011 - Focal adds a new item to its sound system: hi-fi headphones. The first model in this new family, Spirit One honors the standards of the brand, with its immaculate design and high performance.
Two years of relentless work were necessary to develop Spirit One.
Resulting from a whole series of inventions, including acoustic loudspeakers like Grande Utopia, and the result of unique expertise in the field of transducers, Spirit One audio headphones...that are going to make noise!
Combining acoustic, technical and aesthetic performance, Spirit One is an eloquent indicator of Focal's creative capacities. Noble materials (Aluminum), soft touch and total comfort. On-ear model, they fit around the ear without heating the lobe, while still being completely airtight. This provides excellent natural insulation against external noises and ensures deep and solid bass frequencies.
A treat for your eyes and ears, Spirit One also fully meets the expectations of today's users. The removable cord incorporates a remote control and a mic to control the telephonic functions of an iPhone once Spirit One is connected: which allows you to enjoy your favourite music in the street without losing contact with the outside, and on the plane as Spirit One comes with a specialized adapter!
After having brought sound to homes with the sound system, in the car with world renowned speakers, in studios and public address, Spirit One is the missing link to ensure that you have Focal sound with you everywhere!
