The Utopia have already became the world reference high-fidelity headphone manufactured in France by Focal. They are the result of 35 years of innovation, development and manufacturing of high-end speaker drivers & loudspeakers. Equipped with exclusive technology, they offer striking realism, neutrality, dynamics and clarity, for sound with unrivalled purity. The headphone is unique: they are the world's first audiophile headphones featuring a totally open-back full-range speaker driver with pure Beryllium 'M'-shaped domes. 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 equivalent of two tiny authentic loudspeakers over your ears... They meet all the requirements expected of reference headphones due to their sophisticated & elegant design. Premium quality features as the carbon fibre yoke and true lambskin leather ear cushions.
The listening experience is outstanding in terms of realism, natural sound reproduction, dynamics and clarity. When listening to them, the headphones virtually disappear and the audio signal is revealed with a level of precision never achieved until the Utopia was released.
Design is also a key point in regards to the way of using the headphones, both 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 true lambskin leather, used on the cushions, reinforces the character of classically elegant lines, as well as the expression of comfort and overall performances. These headphones have immediately been applauded by the press as well as music lovers after launching.
