  • Description

    Long-known for making some of the worlds best speakers, Focal has entered the headphone world with a bang. The Utopia is Focal’s shot across the bow to anyone who makes high-end headphones.

    With the Utopia, Focal has created an audio masterpiece without sacrificing comfort or appearance - a rare feat in high-end headphones.

    Made in France with the finest materials available and designed to perfection, the Utopias look every bit as good as they sound. The attention to detail is astounding. Even the box is made from leather that is much softer than it needs to be.

    The sound is thick, clear and satisfying with perfectly accurate highs and soothing lows. Everything is balanced in a way that removes layers between you and the music that you didn’t know were there until you put them on. The soundstage is so large that it’s easy to forget you’re wearing headphones (but the soft lambskin earpads make you happy you are).

    To get the most from the Utopias, we suggest pairing them with a great amplifier and DAC (Digital Analog Converter). Right now, our favorite amp to pair with the Utopia is the German-made SPL Phonitor X which really shows what the Utopias are capable of.

    Focal Utopia Headphones

    These were a gift for my son who is an audiophile. He said these are the best sounding he has ever heard. After a slight delay getting this order filled (not enough inventory to meet demand due to the sale) Headphones.com was fantastic! The CEO sent me an email!

    From the moment you open the beautiful box, until the moment you place the beautifully constructed frame onto your head, your mouth will be agape. And then you turn the music on, and your mouth hits the floor. Wow. The clarity, the punch, the accuracy...these headphones are arrestingly majestic. They truly are incredible. The ONLY "con," and this is totally based on my individual ears and preference, is that they are a bit bright. And if what you're listening to isn't mastered well, you're gonna hear it. More than you're ever heard it before. But that's hardly a negative. Just the reality of what you're getting yourself into when you buy these bad boys. The bottom line: if you have the means and listening to music is a big part of your life...make the investment.
