For an entire generation of music enthusiasts, entry-level “hi-fi” systems are now more likely to be based on headphones than on speakers.

Review: Focal Spirit One

Sound & Vision Magazine
25 June 2012
  • Excerpt: Some audiophiles consider Focal’s $180,000-per-pair Grande Utopia EM to be the world’s finest speaker. The Spirit One, Focal’s first headphone, weighs about 99.9% less and costs about 99.8% less. Yet its brushed aluminum metal parts, matte black soft-touch finishes, and detachable cord with a woven cover convey some of the Utopias’ high-end vibe.

Goondu review: Focal Spirit One

  • Excerpt: Mention Focal to audiophiles and the thought of its large floor stander speakers easily come to mind. So when the French hi-fi speaker maker recently said it was getting into headphones, many head-fi folks were thrilled to hear what would come of the effort. The Spirit One is this first pair of ‘phones from Focal and after a quick listen, I’d say they don’t disappoint, as long as you avoid equipment that can add too much bass, as many portable devices and laptops can do.

  • Excerpt: I do not know if the Focal is a good choice, if only for the lack of comfort. Moreover, these headphones are suitable for a certain type of music in my opinion. A little pricey for what it is.

Focal Spirit One Headphones Review

CANADA HiFi
21 March 2013
  • Conclusion: In a nutshell, if you’re looking for a good set of sealed headphones for mobile use – the Focal Spirit One should definitely be on your short list – they provide great value. If you’re going to rely on your iPod/iPad/mobile device alone to drive your headphones – the Spirit One is an absolute must for audition.  These headphones do capture “the Spirit of Sound” and they look great while do it too!
