    "These are about as close to being a closed-back reference headphone as I have heard so far."
    - Ian Dunmore
    Read his full review of the Focal Elegia here.

    Introducing the Elegia from Focal. Focal hit the headphone world hard and fast when they first came into the market with the releases of the Utopia and the Elear which took the headphone world by storm. But they did not stop there, in November of 2017, Focal released the Focal Clear which was met with universal critical acclaim and became the dominant headphone in the $1k range.

    Now Focal brings us the Elegia, their first high-end closed-back headphone. The Elegia represents a closed-back headphone that is very easy to drive meaning portability is a non-issue. It also features the most incredible tonal balance we have heard in a closed-back headphone.

    Elegia is an audiophile over-ear closed-back pair of headphones from Focal. The ergonomic design makes them incredibly comfortable and offers excellent sound isolation, making these headphones the ideal solution for long listening sessions. Continuing its headphone development programme, the Focal R&D team has introduced several new innovations, all with incredible audio performance in mind. The full-range 'M'-shape aluminium/magnesium dome speaker driver provides a very high frequency response, which is the basis for Elegia’s supremely dynamic sound. In addition, the frameless voice coil, which is lightweight yet incredibly stiff, reproduces the minutest details that adds to the convincing all-round performance. With its incredible tonal balance combined with long-term comfort, the Elegia is a key reference in the high-end closed-back headphones sector.

    Comfortable and with spacious presence, balanced tone

    The Focal Elegia deliver a spacious presence and balanced tone with slight added depth in the lowest register as contrasted to the Focal Clear; all of this in closed-back, comfortable, and efficient headphones. After comparing and contrasting with other Focal models, and with Beyerdynamic DT1990, Sennheiser HD800, Audeze LCD X and Beyerdynamic 5Tp models, the Elegia offered the best balance between frequency response, portability, sound isolation, comfort and quality build. The build quality is high and the aesthetics are attractive modestly displaying the luxuriousness of these superb headphones. The included case is both stylish and protective. At this price point, the Elegia is a winner.

    Pros: Balanced tone, comfort, efficiency, ample bass, non-fatiguing sound, good sound isolation, spacious sound as compared to other closed back models and nearly as wide and deep as the Clear. A decent source is highly recommended, such as the Dragonfly Red, Chord Mojo or a dedicated high-resolution portable player, when trying to maintain mobility, or connection to a dedicated hifi headphone amplifier as part of a home system.

    Cons: Cable produces some microphonics and is rather stiff. An inexpensive third-party cable is available from NEOMUSICIA that does not produce the disturbing cable noise and does not noticeably affect the sound. The shorter length is appropriate for portability and is therefore consistent with the overall objectives met by these efficient headphones.
