Excerpt: The rush to sell you headphones pushes on unabated. The thinking seems to be: for the time being people are prepared to spend £200 on headphones, it won't last forever, so let's make some money. And when there's demand, you'd be crazy not to try to satisfy it.
Pros: Sound glorious, bass when you need it, well-balanced, removable cable
Excerpt: Closed-back headphones, constructed from a mixture of aircraft-grade aluminium, leather and rubberised plastic, the Focal Spirit Ones are sturdily made and feel built to last. Behind the bright red mesh in each ear-cup sits a 40mm mylar/titanium diaphragm driver, a light, rigid unit designed to major on sensitivity and linearity.
Pros: Feel durable, sound refined and detailed
Cons: Not the most exciting, or dynamic, headphones we’ve heard
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.
