Focal's Spirit Pro Headphones

Focal who is known for high end studio monitors has announced the imminent launch of their Spirit Professional Headphones ($349 at select dealers).

"The Spirit Professional headphones benefit from Focal’s years of expertise. Focal has been designing and manufacturing speaker drivers and loudspeakers since 1979. These headphones have been designed for sound engineers and musicians. The neutrality of the sound combined with the dynamics of the transducers will enable you to work with great precision. The memory foam ear cups provide excellent insulation and outstanding comfort.""The highly accurate reproduction of bass frequencies will reveal the smallest defects in the mix, while avoiding acoustic constraints of the workspace. Spirit Professional offers excellent acoustic insulation to address the constraints of the often noisy environments specific to Broadcasting and Home Studios."

  • 2 x matched 40mm transducers featuring mylar/ titanium composite membranes and neodymium magnet 
  • Closed-back design 
  • Memory foam ear cups and headband 
  • Two cables are supplied with the Spirit Professional headphones:
  • A coiled cable providing extremely faithful reproduction of the audio signal and optimal performance. We recommend using this cable.
  • A straight cable with built-in remote control. This enables you to use your headphones in hands-free mode with your telephone or other devices equipped with remote-control functions compatible with this remote control.
