Looking forward to auditioning the new models.

I was impressed with Spirit One's sound, but not the style. Classic looks good though.

The fs1 sounded about average for the price. The style was really good though. Id like to try them though.

Hi Jude,

Thanks for the excellent video!

I don't recall you however mentioning the RRP of the Spirit Classic.

Do you know what it will be?

Cheers,

This combination of posts is basically a summary of all the on-topic debate that's ever happened on the FS1 thread.

Good catch. LOL. And we got there in only a few posts this time.

Hi Jude, do the earpads of the Classic go all the way around the ear (as opposed to the Spirit One that sit partially on the ear)?

I would like to know this as well - pretty important for us big head types.

I have the Pro in review right now and I am very impressed by how it sounds. I can't wait to check out the Classic. I may have to own the Pro & the Classic for my personal collection. Thanks for the first look Jude.

I've watched this video a few times just so I can see the headphones again.  Man, I know I will be buying one.  BTW, Focal will have some nice surprises to show us at CanJam.  :)

Great video Jude!!
 

Also looking forward to buy one

 

Anyone knows when will it be released?

post #14 of 172
Wow, these look damn nice! Too bad it's so expensive. frown.gif

Considering the price is $399 I wonder how these compare to the new B&W P7. Although I don't know why I want to know, I can't afford that one either! One day... rolleyes.gif

Yes, these will be interesting to compare, specialy taking the 100+$  extra for the P7 into acount. And then wait for a over-ear model from KEF:)
