Focal Utopia Headphones

Focal Utopia Open Back Headphones are THE reference high-fidelity headphones manufactured in France by Focal. They are the result of 35 years of innovation, development and manufacturing of high-end speaker drivers and loudspeakers. Equipped with exclusive technology, they offer striking realism, neutrality, dynamics and clarity, for sound with unrivaled purity.

The acoustic quality of this exclusive solution allowed Focal to avoid the use of any crossover or passive filtering process to achieve a frequency response from 5Hz to 50kHz!

The listening experience is outstanding in terms of realism, natural sound reproduction, dynamics and clarity. When listening to the Utopia, the headphones virtually disappear and the audio signal is revealed with a level of precision never achieved until Utopia.

Design is also a key point, be it in regards to the way of using the headphones, comfort, as well as the aesthetic. Another achievement with Utopia is the removal from the conventional rotation included on the yoke and its integration into the headband to ensure a total purity of the design.

The Pittards leather, used on the cushions, reinforces the character of classically elegant lines, as well as the expression of comfort and overall

What the press is saying:

Hi-Fi+ - Utopia - Editor's choice - 04/20 - Hi-Fi+ 

"In our test, Chris Martens felt the Utopia offers “an effortlessly neutral frequency response, coupled with the resolving powers and transient speeds of an electrostatic headphone, while it renders instrumental and human voices with coherency and harmonic integrity.” He concluded by saying simply, “I consider this headphone a masterpiece.”

 An effortlessly neutral frequency response, coupled with the resolving powers and transient speeds of an electrostatic headphone.”

"The Focal Utopia Headphones are the Cadillac of headphones. They look, feel, and sounds incredible. The Beryllium drivers give them accuracy and transient response rivaled by few. They are expensive, at ($3990 for the Standard package) but if you can afford it and appreciate highly detailed music listening, you should drop everything right now and buy these headphones. I don’t say that often, but for these headphones it is true."

home theater review

"With all the tracks I listened to, the Focals had an uncannily large image with tons of ambiance, combined with image specificity that kept all of the instrumentation locked into a realistic three-dimensional space. The upper treble was clean and crisp, presenting cymbal crashes tightly and precisely, without smearing. Midrange frequencies had heft and displayed a finesse that I rarely experience even with the best of headphones. Bass was exceptionally neutral: not lacking in the lowest registers nor overemphasized and bloated. Precise is a great word to describe the overall sound if I could only use one."
