  • 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

  • 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: The Focal Spirit One really took me by surprise.   A friend of mine praised them a lot so I asked him to lend them to me for a little test.   When I opened Focal Spirit Ones’ case, I found 2 detachable cables, one for smartphones with volume control, and one for normal usage, a 3.5 to 6.3 jack...
  • Pros: excellent, fast, punchy and well extended bass; lush and present mid-range ; meaty and natural sound ; good treble with no harshness or sibilance ; very fast and energetic sound (excellent PRAT); very good isolation; good overall build quality; excellent for portable use; detachable cables
  • Cons: the sound is a a little congested; voices could use more texture ; could be uncomfortable for many

" Ok but uncomfortable "

ApolliNerd, Audiofanzine

  • 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.

Neutral, detailed and dynamic.

  • 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.

Superb

Jack, Amazon

  • 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.
