Is this a picture of the new Focal Celestee?

This should be related to the new headphone that Headphones.com is unveiling shortly.

This looks nice! :)

I'm guessing it's the Stellia to the Clear maybe? Lol

Here's another photo.

@Malevolent LOLOLOL

I think you ruined the surprise if that is it. Another mid-tier headphone from focal. 😀

Just like their mid-tier utopia 😜
Well, if it was a secret, it's not a well-kept one. :wink:

If you search for "Focal Celestee" on Google, you'll find a bunch of results. It appears that some retailers were too eager to post information on this headphone; the sites have since been taken down, but Google has cached the "hits" on the "search results" page.

I also saw a result that indicates its price as $990, although it no longer appears in the list.

It does look pretty - the combination of rose gold and black has always been a favorite of mine.

If it's better than the Elegia and cheaper than the Stellia, my ears would be listening on this one :)
Yes, an intermediary between the Stellia and the Elegia is the best-possible spot for the Celestee. I have the Elegia, but I found it lacking in certain areas (notably, the bass). If the Celestee fixes these issues, and retains a decent MSRP, it'll be a winner, I feel.

My guess is that this is just the non-Bentley, non-limited version of the Radiance. I have a feeling it’ll be basically the same headphone.

I think this is one of the best looking Focal headphones so far though. Aesthetically, I’d take this over the Radiance and Stellia.

Yeah, the Bentley logo makes it a silly headphone. I'll be waiting for reviews on the Celestee. It's a pretty interesting name though.
