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.
Summary: The Spirit One's have a nice balanced sound. There is sufficient detail without the sound becoming bright or harsh even at higher volumes. The low end frequencies are controlled and fast but can reach surprisingly deep levels of bass.
Summary: There's no doubt that these headphones sound good and if based on sound alone I would like these headphones. However the two things I think let the focals down are firstly the build and secondly the comfort.
Summary: These are beautiful looking headphones in my humble opinion. I felt a little self conscious when I first wore them on the commute to work, but have had several comments of admiration from other regular commuters. They are a little on the big size, but no bigger than a lot of other brands out there.
Excerpt: Over 1 year now AKG / Sony / Sennheiser / Beyerdynamic What I love the most .... er .... perhaps we did change 3 times and it deserves to be still .... Oh yes, I also love myself realized that
Summary: Just got these headphones for my birthday and they are just fantastic. They may not be as good as the AKG's that are a similar price but those things are huge and completely impractical because of their size and also lack a mic for mobile phone use.
