The Focal Utopia is the result of 35 years of intricate development and manufacturing experience, culminating in a high-fidelity reference headphone with clarity and neutrality truly comparable to that of a high-end loudspeaker.
The Utopia's open back circum-aural design comprises of two beryllium M-shaped dome loudspeaker drivers, memory foam ear-cushions, a balanced cable with channel separation, a leather headband with length adjustment and earcup rotation, and Lemo self-locking connectors.
They have received critical acclaim including a 5 star What Hi-Fi rating. The Utopia's are something very special and were described as ''some of the finest headphones on the planet''. This conclusion is based on the sound quality, build and comfort.
Reviewers have noted that they display a natural, unforced and tonal balance, bringing precision but without sounding over-analytical or fatiguing. They are refined but offer an authority to their sound that remains composed while delivering huge dynamics.
