Lacking in the high-mids. Not for those seeking an accurate sound signature.

Focal's recent headphones have exercised a little more restraint in the bass department and focused more on accuracy. The Spark's boosted bass is not unpleasant in the slightest, but it's missing its counterpart in the high-mids and highs—if we're...

Focal Spark Wireless headphone review: Great sound without wires


The Focal Spark wireless headphones offer the same great sound as the wired Spark headphones, but with freedom from wires that you need on the move.

Great looking design ; Sound is well balanced ; Look ma! No wires!

Fit issues while exercising ; Price may be a bit high for some

The Focal Spark wireless headphones offer the same great sound as the wired Spark headphones but give you the freedom from wires that you may need if you’re on the move quite a bit. Whether you are commuting, exercising, or hard at work, going wireless...
