."Its (Focal's) 35 years of speaker design experience shows here. The highlight is the 40mm Beryllium drive unit, which covers the frequency range from 5Hz to 50kHz
...As you’d expect at this level, these Focals are built beautifully, combining leather, carbon fibre and metal to produce a product that feels like it’ll last for years..." What Hi-Fi

"Overall, I think this headphone out resolves hyper-detailed headphones such as the HE1000, SR-009, and HD800 and then improves on their desirable traits. The price is definitely steep at $4,000 though it can be justified for getting the most performance from cost-is-no-object amplifiers that can run from $5,000 and above excluding tubes.
I would give the Utopia a resounding YES to whoever can afford and is having doubts to purchase this headphone. The Utopia can definitely hold its ground to whatever it’s thrown at genre-wise and this is through a few months of use now, so no holiday period here." Headphonics

"...this is a sexy headphone! In my world, killer audio gear is black, and the Utopia is unapologetically, confidently, bad-ass black...All-in-all this is a stealth-black sexy build, with terrific materials, and just the right balance of understatement and bling...the Utopia is a battle-ready flagship headphone...there's a clear difference between the Elear and Utopia: the Elear has great punch and dynamic control, but the Utopia bests it in balancing solid dynamic impact with nuanced resolve...Focal has largely redefined...or better said, refined anew, what it means to be a high-end headphone. A technological tour de force..." Inner Fidelity
