    Focal Elegia compared to Focal Stellia, Sony MDR-Z1R, and Audeze LCD2C Which Closed Back Headphone is Best?

    Focal Stellia Headphones Review

    Closed-Back Utopia? Yes. Utopia? No.  Let me now explain in detail. In 2017, Focal came to Moon Audio to introduce the pre-production units of the Focal Utopia and the Focal Elear. Sanjay Sharma & Romain VET from Focal asked my opinion of what should be next for Focal in the headphone market. I immediately said if you can produce a reference closed...

    Focal Elegia Headphones Review

    Elegia Headphones Review - Photo's don't do the Focal Elegia headphone justice. Their look and feel, something I love, is impossible to convey in a photograph. You experience Focal's new closed-back headphones value once you live and breathe with them. Once you've listened to them for long sessions over several days as I did, their outstanding performance in several areas is clear...

  7. Focal Elegia Review - Quiet Refined

    Focal Elegia Review - Quiet Refined

    Days after the French company Focal (Focal-JMLab) released Elegia their new closed-back headphones, a pair spent a morning on my head. Great to have friends who own an audio company (Drew and Nichole Baird at Moon Audio) because they let you play with their new toys. How Elegia sat on my head is an excellent place to start this review...

    Focal Elegia - Focal Rocks Closed Back Headphones

    Focal Elegia closed-back headphones were a somewhat poorly kept secret. I received a pair of Focal's new closed-back cans this morning at the Rocky Mountain Audio Festival and liked what I've heard so far. Standing in a booth at the RMAF is not optimal for listening to write a review, but Focal Clear with more bass would is my first...

    Elear Cans ROCK!

    Focal Elear Headphones Review The first time I learned about Focal Elear and Utopia headphones, I thought their new cans would be unique. I’ve heard the distinct and extraordinary sound from Focal speakers. When Sanjay, Focal’s North American Sales Manager, asked to introduce new headphones we looked forward to the meeting. Sanjay made a full and magical presentation. Focal wanted...
  11. Focal Utopia Headphone Review

    Focal Utopia Headphone Review

    Focal, the French speaker maker, blows up what the word “headphones” means with the new Utopia headphones. After spending several hours with Focal’s “Beryllium M-Shaped Drivers” a few things were clear. Focal’s Utopia headphones are the best cans I’ve heard and I own a pair of Shure KSE1500s and Fostex TH900. Thanks to friends at Moon-Audio.com, I’ve listened to great...
