Focal Utopia High End open back headphones

Focal Utopia High End open back headphones

What we Say:

The Focal Utopia are an open back model in the Focal premium range of headphones. They sit at the top of the range and are for those seeking the ultimate dynamic headphone experience. They feature stunning build and sound quality. They also come beautifully packaged and include a carry case to keep them safe. Being an open back design they are idea for listening where sound leakage won’t be an issue. The Utopia feature a detachable cable to allow users to experiment with aftermarket cables if they wish. An extension cable is available as an optional extra.

The Utopia has a closed back model sitting just below it in the range called the Stellia. Both models benefit from using the best source components and amplification to really get the most out of them. We would recommend components such as the Naim Uniti Atom Headphone Edition to get an idea of just how good these headphones can sound. There is another open back design further down the range called the Clear MG.

The Utopia are mostly black  with features picked out in Silver. This gives them a really subtle yet elegant look.

What they say:



Focal Utopia have already become the world reference high-fidelity headphones manufactured in France by Focal. They are the result of 35 years of innovation, development and manufacturing of high-end speaker drivers and loudspeakers. Equipped with exclusive technology, they offer striking realism, neutrality, dynamics and clarity, for sound with unrivalled purity. Utopia are unique: they are the world’s first audiophile headphones featured totally open-backed full-range speaker drivers with pure Beryllium ’M’-shaped domes. The acoustic quality of this exclusive solution allowed Focal to avoid the use of any crossover or passive filtering process to achieve a frequency response from 5Hz to 50kHz! The equivalent of two tiny authentic loudspeakers over your ears… They meet all the requirements expected of high-end headphones due to their sophisticated and elegant design and to purposeful materiality, such as the carbon fibre yoke and true lambskin leather ear cushions.

The listening experience is outstanding in terms of realism, natural sound reproduction, dynamics and clarity. When listening to them, the headphones virtually disappear and the audio signal is revealed with a level of precision never achieved until Utopia.
Design is also a key point, be it in regards to the way of using the headphones, comfort, as well as the aesthetic. Another achievement with Utopia is the removal from the conventional rotation included on the yoke and its integration into the headband to ensure a total purity of the design. The true lambskin leather, used on the cushions, reinforces the character of classically elegant lines, as well as the expression of comfort and overall performances. These headphones have immediately been applauded by the press as well as music lovers after launching.
