Focal Utopia Open Back 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

for your hi-fi headphones
Focal - Arche
HIGH-END AUDIOPHILE AMPLIFIER AND DAC
Focal has established itself as a key player in the high-end headphones market. The brand completes its high-fidelity Headphone Collection with Arche, an electronic associated solution to amplify your songs and your emotions. Thanks to the digital-analog converter and the pure class A amplification modes designed especially for headphones it integrates, Arche ensures an exceptional sound quality throughout your listening session.
All-in-one solution, Arche combines a digital-analog converter as well as two pure class A amplification modes (voltage, hybrid). Ideal to sit between the digital sources and your high-fidelity headphones, Arche is the perfect product to fully enjoy your music whilst benefiting from the performance delivered by the converter to drive a home hi-fi system. Presets for every set of Focal headphones (Utopia, Clear, Elear, Elegia and Stellia) are available to make sure you get the absolute best from this ultimate combination.
POWER AND PRECISION
The two Premium digital-analog balanced AK 4490 converters can process formats in PCM format up to 384kHz, as well as DSD 256. The analog signal is then routed towards two pure class A amplification channels for an uncompromising solution. The original audio signal is thereby totally respected, so as to reproduce the tiniest details of the recording.
CHOOSE YOUR AMPLIFICATION
Arche includes presets for every set of Focal headphones. You can use your high-fidelity headphones (open-back or closed-back) with Arche and be sure you are enjoying a combination of electronics and acoustics that is carefully thought out and sustainable thanks to the upgrade option by using a USB stick. Every user gets amplification to suit their headphones and their favourite tonal balance.
USE AND DESIGN
Arche comes with a solid aluminium headphones mount inspired by the brand’s logo: accessing and storing the headphones is therefore quick and easy, as well as looking incredible and saving on space!
