[test] Focal Spirit One, un casque français de qualité

diisign.com
14 January 2015
  • Summary: On sent que Focal a apporté autant de soin à ce casque qu’à ses enceintes haut de gamme : la qualité de son est sans faille, fidèle à la source originale, d’une neutralité presque parfaite et sans coloration excessive (un peu plus d’aigus, un peu moins de basses). Sa neutralité pourra rebuter les amateurs de techno, à qui les basses pourront manquer.
  • Pros: + Qualité sonore : neutre, dynamique, + Beaux détails de fabrication (câble, télécommande, arceau gainé de cuir…), + Coussins confortables, + Très bonne isolation aux bruits extérieurs, + Télécommande/micro réussie, + Housse de protection et pochette rigide fournies, + Adaptateur jack 3,5mm et avion fournis, + Designed in France…

  • Summary: Focal designs it's first headphone from scratch, including an innovative stiff, light diaphragm. Pre-production shows the resulting headphone meets design goals. Spirit One goes into production, but manufacturer, possibly having troubles with new and unusual diaphragm, ends up reworking diaphragm parts rather than throwing them out.

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.

Focal Spirit One headphones

Pocket Lint

  • Conclusion: We really like the Focal Spirit headphones, they have a sound that is very appealing. If we had to be concise, we'd say they sound "just right". There's no time when we felt one bit of the sound had too much of any one component, or not enough of any part of the frequency range. In terms of comfort, they lose a tiny bit because they aren't all that easy to adjust, clamp quite hard and have cups that are fractionally too small for our ears.
  • Pros: Sound glorious, bass when you need it, well-balanced, removable cable
  • Cons: Grip your head quite right, hard to adjust

  • Conclusion: Available in black or white, the award-winning, high-fidelity Focal Spirit One headphones are a real treat for your iOS devices. We would recommend trying them on before buying if you have adult male ears, however.
