    It's just a feeling I have and could be wrong.

    Focal For Bentley Radiance Headphones

    I don't think Focal will be releasing a new headphone anytime soon - my prediction is never.

    Evolving the UM Reference: A New Chapter for the Mason Series—Mason Nuit Étoilée & Soleil Tombé

    Waaay too late mate - this has been happening in this industry for some time now and it's not just the manufacturers who are at fault either. Sites like this and others would have us believe that these prices are reasonable and you must also add a 3k cable to it as well to enhance the sound of...

    Focal Clear Mg Review & Measurements

    IMHO The Jotunheim 2 is the pick for the MG - with the RME ADI-2 FS it is endgame for me.

    OPPO HA-2 Portable Headphone Amplifier/DAC Discussion Thread

    Well my battery was completely gone as in no lights when charging so I was going to buy a replacement battery but just out of curiosity I plugged in the supplied quick charger and nothing. I left it connected and came back an hour later it had started to charge to my surprise. Not only that but...

    Focal Headphones 2023 US Holiday Promotion

    The distributor here was selling the Celestee @ $599 AUD - that's $382.00 USD - why is the North America distributor dragging the chain on the discounts. At least our guy said screw it - out they go at cost. I'd be waiting on further discounts if anybody here is going to buy Focal in North America.

    Focal Headphones 2023 US Holiday Promotion

    I'm not Robinson Crusoe with regard to being pissed off at Focal. Not to mention those here who paid full retail only to see them go for half of that and even less on some models not long after effectively trashing the brand here in Oz. At one stage it was only 250 more for the Radiance...

    Focal Headphones 2023 US Holiday Promotion

    Are there any new Focal headphones on the horizon or is this the end of Focal headphones?? If not please change your cheap crappy headband mechanism as I know your markups after witnessing the fire sale here in Australia.

    Focal Clear headphones

    Sorry mate but no. Besides, I'm going out on a limb here and say that Focal will not be releasing a new headphone anytime soon if ever. Read into that what you will.

    Focal owners in Australia innocent victims of acrimonious breakup

    In what looks like a very bad breakup between the Australian distributor and reseller of Focal and Naim there has been a fire sale of sorts here in Australia with prices of Focal headphones being just ridiculous thus trashing the brand here in Australia and ruining any resale value for those who...

    Focal Clear Mg Review & Measurements

    I had my MG's up for sale recently to "upgrade" till it dawned on me that there was no logical reason as I had my endgame cans. Driving them with a RME ADI DAC plus Jot 2. A satisfying feeling it is and I got them for 40% off RRP here in AU.

    Upgrade My MidFi Stack

    Actually the headphone amp ain't too shabby. I'm driving Focal and Fostex Headphones. The IEM jack is very handy indeed. Drives my AKT8IE MK II's beautifully. I do have a Jot 2 attached to at as well but it wasn't needed.

    Upgrade My MidFi Stack

    This. I got one last year and is end game DAC territory for me. Add to that a headphone amp with 2 jacks one for IEM's, a PEQ, plus a plethora of tweaking and a geeks dream for a manual. A truly outstanding device.
