Focal Utopia KEY FEATURES

Pure Beryllium ‘M’-shaped dome speaker driver

THE PURITY OF SOUND AT ITS APOGEE

Utopia are equipped with totally open-backed full-range speaker drivers with pure Beryllium ‘M’-shaped domes. Once more, the engineers at Focal have pushed back the limits of acoustic innovation and have succeeded in providing a listening experience worthy of the best Focal loudspeakers. The result: a transducer with a frequency response ranging from 5Hz to more than 50kHz without any crossover or passive filtering! You’ll completely forget you are wearing these headphones, and the reproduction of the audio signal is of unrivalled purity.

High-end design

REMARKABLE DESIGN
AND COMFORT

Particular attention has been paid to the design of Utopia, in terms of use, comfort and overall aesthetics. These audiophile headphones feature elegant, high-quality materials, and comfort has been greatly enhanced thanks to the mechanical design which has been optimised to the smallest detail: the constant bend of the headband, an even distribution of weight, the design of the yoke and the memory foam ear-pieces.

High-fidelity cable

ACOUSTIC TRANSPARENCY
AND EASY CUSTOMISATION

The cable supplied with Utopia was specifically selected for its capability to respect the original audio signal, such as its very low impedance (< 90 mΩ/metre). It is totally symmetrical in order to offer extremely low crosstalk (< 70 picofarads). The shielding protects it from electromagnetic interference and allows for a longer cable (3m/9ft.). Finally, the 9.5mm Lemo® connector and the 6.35mm Neutrik® stereo jack enable easy customisation.

            Sound

            • Impedance Impedance and sensitivity go hand in hand and represent the amount of power required to achieve a certain volume level. Lower impedance and higher sensitivities are better with lower power devices such as MP3 players or smartphones.
              80 Ohm
            • Sensitivity
              104dB SPL / 1mW @ 1kHz
            • Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) Total harmonic distortion (THD) signifies the difference in harmonic frequencies between what's inputted into the headphones, and what comes out. A lower THD is indicative of better sound quality, but anything less than 1% is hard to compare without listening to the headphones yourself.
              0.2%
            • Frequency (Low) The lowest frequency at which headphones produce audio.
              5 Hz
            • Frequency (High) The highest frequency at which headphones produce audio.
              50 kHz

            • Operating Principle A headphone's operating principle refers to a physical design difference between headphones. They come in three types: open, semi-open, or closed. Open means that air can pass through the back of the diaphragm, preventing sound reflection, and producing a very accurate sound reproduction.
