  • Summary: Very good headphones if you want something fun, lively and bassy. I was really impressed at first but with time I started to notice the short comings. Although relatively open sounding the sound is quite synthetic, almost forced.
  • Pros: Clear bass, excellent build. Lively presentation.
  • Cons: Overly bright. Synthetic sound.

  • Summary: I was overall unimpressed with the Focal Spirit One cans.  I'm hardly a connoisseur of headphones, but I was let down a bit by the sound and the manufacturer's advertising.   I compared these to my reference headphones, which are at the moment a pair of Sony MDR-V6.
  • Pros: Warm, good bass, feel sturdy, good aesthetics, detachable cable, nice included accessories and case
  • Cons: Not actually circumaural, cheap cables, overbearing clamping force, highs can be shrill

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.
  • 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.

  • Excerpt: Focal présente son Spirit One comme un casque à la fois Hi-Fi et nomade, une prétention ambitieuse pour un objet vendu à 199 € « seulement ». La réputation de la société stéphanoise dans le monde de la Hi-Fi n'est plus à faire, mais elle débute dans le domaine des casques : sa promesse d'un son de...

  • Excerpt: Egentlig beskæftiger de sig med højttalere hos Focal. Men de har åbenbart tænkt, at springet til hovedtelefoner ikke kan være så stort for en højttalerproducent. De har brugt over tre år på deres første hovedtelefoner og brugt erfaringerne fra udviklingen af højttalere til at skabe Spirit One.
  • Cons: Behersket dynamik

  • Summary: Si la spécialité de Focal reste de par son histoire l'enceinte, qu'elles soient Haute-Fidélité, Home Studio et Home-Cinéma, la marque française à ces dernières années fait une incursion remarquée dans l'univers des kits d' enceintes multimédias avec le très bon Focal XS 2.1 , et il y a quelques mois...
  • Pros: Très bonne dynamique, Performances sonores à la hauteur, Qualité du médium/aigu, Belle neutralité, Confortable, Design
  • Cons: Le grave manque de fermeté, Structure pivotante des oreillettes fragile, La rallonge jack 3.5mm vraiment trop courte et de qualité basique, Pression exercé sur les oreilles difficilement tenable après 1h
