Any news on replacement pads, hopefully bigger size (wider entry) for these?
I already have tried HP50 (too shallow, too narrow entry) and these are even narrower.
Would be nice to have fully circumaural headphones, without the pads pressing on earlobes.
I wonder if Focal plan to release an over-ear design since this on-ear design is pinching my ear lobes, lol
BTW, I love what Focal has done with the Spirit line. Top notch work all around. Best new brand.
No headphones - especially closed headphones - are going to fit every head & set of ears ideally.
I find the Focal Spirit Pro very comfortable, and that's comparing it to dozens and dozens I've tried.
(Maybe close to a hundred by now.)
HD800 is more analytical. Highs are more detailed and extended and the HD 800 is more revealing of nuances in the music. That being said I prefer the sound signature of the Focals with most reasonably priced gear. Only time I would prefer the Senn is with specific higher end amplification.
