Focal Spirit One review

 

Another premium headphone to add to your shortlist, but not the most exciting sound

Feel durable ; sound refined and detailed

Not the most exciting, or dynamic, headphones we’ve heard

Yet another premium headphone to add to your shortlist

Focal Spirit One review

 

A spirited beginning

Great build quality ; Neutral audio characteristics ; Built-in mic and controls

Not very comfortable ; High frequencies can be harsh ; No cable locking mechanism

The Spirit One is a fairly great first attempt by Focal in creating a audiophile headphone, but that’s to be expected from a company as experienced and skilled in audio products as them. It has accurate sound representation and enough bass to power...

Focal Spirit One review

 

The $279 Focal Spirit One is affordable for a headphone designed and engineered in France (but actually made in China). The Spirit One's ear cups are somewhat larger than the Bowers & Wilkins P5 on-ear headphones ($299), but the size advantage pays...

The Focal Spirit One combines sleek styling and vivid sound quality in a relatively small circumaural, over-the-ear headphone design.

Comfort is good, but not great.

Focal may be new to the headphone market, but its Spirit One is an auspicious debut with the look, feel, and sound of a winner.

Goondu review: Focal Spirit One

 

The market is strewn with many options now, but the Focal Spirit One is worth a listen because it rewards "on the go" users with better-than-average sounds that go against the market trend for imag...

The market is strewn with many options now, but I’d recommend giving the Spirit One a listen if you are looking for a good-sounding pair of ‘phones for your frequent train or plane rides.

Focal Spirit One

 

First off, let us just say that these headphones ooze quality straight out of the box. The design is stunning and the build quality is excellent – far above what you'd expect for a pair of $299 headphones.

Luxurious; audiophile sound; good price for what you get

Smallish earcups; tight fit

Available in black or white, the award-winning, high-fidelity Focal Spirit One headphones are a real treat for your iOS devices. We would recommend trying them on before buying if you have adult male ears, however.
