The French brand Focal presents a new edition of its iconic and exceptional hi-fi headphones.
A SENSATIONAL LISTENING EXPERIENCE, EVEN MORE SOPHISTICATED AND ELEGANT
Since they were first launched on the market in 2016, Focal’s Utopia headphones have been considered one of the best headphones in the world. In constant renovation, the French brand, with unique savoir-faire in acoustics, has given its iconic product a new design and has also added acoustic improvements (new voice coil, ‘M’-shaped grilles on the inside of the headphones…).
But without a doubt, the new Utopia headphones continue to include all the exclusive high-end Focal technologies that catapulted them to resounding success.
A NEW LOOK, A REFRESHED DESIGN
The design of the new Utopias is a combination of restraint and distinction. The honeycomb grille on both the outside and inside follows the aesthetic of FOCAL’s latest hi-fi headphones, both open (Clear Mg) and closed (Stellia and Celestee), and gives the Utopia a unique and remarkable.
Also reflecting the aesthetic of recent headsets are the black chrome rings, which on the new Utopias are attached from the inside for a cleaner look. These new headphones introduce new design codes, which will also be used in future Focal Utopia products. An example of this is the “Yin & Yang”, which appears on the outer casing and symbolizes the perfect balance between design and technology that embodies these high-end French headphones, as well as the double black and red grille of the motor unit of the speakers.
THE BEST FOCAL TECHNOLOGIES
Continuing the quest for excellence in their creations and starting a new chapter in the history of these iconic audiophile headphones, Focal engineers opted for a new voice coil made of copper (to improve reliability) and aluminum (to make it more light). This alloy provides an updated sonic signature, bringing even greater neutrality, with powerful lows and smoother highs. In addition, the grilles inside the earphones are now M-shaped, following the curves of the speaker drivers, for better linearity and accuracy.
In addition to these innovations, the new Utopia headphones continue to include everything that made the first editions such a success: pure beryllium full-range speaker drivers, the “M” shaped dome, and being fully open for surprisingly lifelike listening full of neutrality, dynamics, and transparency. Exclusive to Focal, the proprietary speaker drivers work without active or passive corrections, from 5 Hz to over 50 kHz. The headphones seem to disappear entirely, leaving a reproduction of the audio signal that is unrivaled in its purity.
TOP QUALITY MATERIALS DEDICATED TO SOUND AND COMFORT
The Utopias are made with sophisticated, top-quality materials. The joints, made from forged and recycled carbon, add a touch of elegance, while making the headphones lighter and distributing their weight more evenly. The genuine leather headband and perforated leather memory foam ear cushions provide unparalleled comfort and softness.
And exceptional headphones deserve high-end accessories: Utopia comes in faux-leather packaging with a thermoformed black fabric carrying case and two hi-fi cables (3m and 1.5m) to use the headphones at home with an amplifier or take them wherever you want with Lemo® connectors and a Jack adapter.
