Focal Sphear review

 

A cracking effort, especially when you consider these are Focal's first ever in-ear headphones...

Wonderfully subtle, balanced and weighty sound ; Fluid dynamics ; Comfortable fit ; Clear with voices ; Classy design and build

Could be a touch more expressive

A gorgeous pair of in-ears that have a full-bodied, detailed sound that’s engaging to listen to

Focal Sphear review

 

Focal's first in-ear headphone impress

Comfortable for long periods ; Rich, mid-forward sound ; Lightweight

No volume control on remote ; Average noise isolation ; Plastic build

Focal’s first in-ear headphones offer clear and balanced sound at an affordable price. While not as bulletproof as some of the competition, the Focal Sphear sound so good it’s hard to get upset over its plastic build and average noise isolation. For a...

Focal Sphear review: An audiophile-grade in-ear headphone for less than $200

 

A smooth tonal balance and a comfy fit distinguish the Focal Sphear from the competition.

The Focal Sphear is a lightweight, comfortable in-ear headphone that stays in your ears and sounds impressive for the price, with full bass and pleasantly crisp treble. There's an inline one-button remote and microphone for cell phone use and a carry...

They let in a little more ambient noise than your typical noise-isolating headphone and the headphone's added transparency magnifies the flaws in poorly produced tracks or heavily compressed recordings.

The Focal Sphear is a relatively affordable audiophile-grade in-ear headphone that's easy to listen to for long stretches.

Sphear Earbuds

 

When I think of Focal I think of quality and these earbuds are rather good. However unlike a lot of items in their catalogue the price they are sold at does not make your eyes water. So these mid-priced earbuds got tested over several weeks.

Focal Sphear Wireless

 

The Focal Sphear Wireless earphones deliver solid audio in a crowded field of quality Bluetooth in-ears, but offer little excitement otherwise.

Strong audio performance. Secure fit with multiple eartip options.

No water-resistance rating. Poor inline mic. Dull design.

The Focal Sphear Wireless earphones deliver a good audio experience, with two useful EQ modes, for a reasonable price. The fit is secure and the overall design is comfortable and easy to use. What's missing is an IP rating for water resistance that...

Focal Sphear

 

The no-frills Focal Sphear in-canal earphones deliver a secure fit and a balanced sound signature that still allows for some added bass depth.

Clean, powerful audio performance with robust bass and bright highs. Ships with multiple eartip options, including memory foam tips.

Could use a bit more high-mid presence.

There's plenty to like about Focal's Sphear earphones. The no-nonsense design places an emphasis on a secure fit, and the drivers deliver an accurate sound signature. Some might wish for a slightly stronger high-mid presence, but you would never call...

Focal Sphear Review: High Quality, Great Sounding In-Ear Headphones

 

Our Focal Sphear review takes a look at these high-fidelity in-ear headphones that Focal claims are faithful to their historic acoustic signature, the "Spirit of Sound."

Great sound, premium looking design.

Might be a bit pricey for some.

Focal Sphear In-ear Headphone Review

 

High-end in-ears hit all the right notes—except value.

For a first foray into the world of high-end in-ears, the Focal Sphears clearly mean business. That said, at $180 they are probably beyond what most shoppers are looking for in a pair of in-ears. Instead, we feel that they'll primarily appeal to...
