That's not even close dude. People on here have all the Summit-fi headphones. But I'll get there eventually.i spent my fair share of a penny on the 9 cans I owe so far.

The Utopia's are tough to beat, but every time I listen to the Z1R the more and more I realize how impressive their sound and build is. Sony hit the mark when it came to tuning these. You have something special.

Oh yeah, Sony went all-out on their z1r, apparently trying to invoke the famous R10 that was a rare but very "peak summit" headphone.

Q: Can I travel with the Utopia on airplane without storing them in a pressure sealed case?

It better be good for portable use so it can replace my Shure SE846. Else I won't buy it tongue.gif

I will also have to see how it looks on me in a mirrow when I audition them. The NAD HP 50 was a no go based on looks for example.

Anyone keeping score on Focal driver problems (aside from Focal)? Is it mostly the Utopia with its Be driver and former-less voice coil? Or have there also been driver issues with Elear's?


Dear FLTWS and all,

Following the recent questions about drivers issues, I would like to precise that they came from new production on a limited number of headphones.

Focal has personally taken on all concerned customers' headphones. These issues are no longer topical.

 

Be sure, that we still pay close attention to our products quality and there is no other issue on Utopia and Elear manufacturing.

Best regards,
Marine, Community Manager Focal

Jason but you do not listen to the Utopia on the plane right?

It's great that Focal directly address our concern here. Thank you.

I don't but I have tried to use them on planes. Not a real good option. On planes I use the Focal Listen or my Ether Flow C.

I want to see someone give a comparison between the Audeze LCD-2 and the Focal Elear.
