Our take on the Focal Spirit One

by Dave Bar
Focal

Top-notch headphones from a world-class speaker company

As one of the world's premier speaker manufacturers, Focal knows great sound. Now they've created headphones that pack the same sonic realism and precision as their speakers into a portable package you can take with you anywhere. The lightweight, high-quality Spirit One headphones deliver powerful, punchy bass with crystal clear mids and highs. Their closed-back design provides excellent isolation from the outside world. And because they're sealed, you can enjoy truly private listening without sound leaking outside to those around you.

Sirit One with accessories

The Spirit One headphones come ready to travel with you anywhere.

Take calls. Take control.

As beautiful as they are functional, Spirit One also provides the versatility today's users expect. The braided fabric cord incorporates a three-button remote and microphone to control your iPhone®, iPad®, or iPod®. Enjoy your favorite music in the street or on the plane without losing contact with the outside.


Built for comfort and speed

The headphone's ear cups feature plush cushions that feel great. An adjustable padded headband machined from aircraft-grade aluminum provides ruggedness and reliability. The Spirit One uses powerful neodymium magnets and lightweight-but-rigid 40mm mylar/titanium diaphragms for fast response and transparent sound. You also get convenient portability — the earcups fold up for easy storage in the included carry case or drawstring pouch.

Great Headphones

Written By DanS, Boulder, CO on Tuesday, March 25, 2014
 
I have owned these headphones for about 1 year and loved them. They have a great balance of sound quality, features, comfort and style. I auditioned quite a few headphones before buying these. There were a few expensive headphones I tried that sounded better with headphone amp (Grado) but didn't sound very good when connected directly to my phone or iPod. These sound great both driven by an iPhone/iPod and using an amp. They also have a nice inline remote and mic.
Pros:
Sound quality, comfort, convenience with built in remote and mic.
Cons:
The metal cover over on the headphone jack is decorative and glued over the top of a black plastic internal cover. It comes unglued from time to time when unplugging. Easy to reglue it, but it would be better if it screwed into place.
