Focal Spirit & Sphear












Closed back, circumaural professional headphones


Spirit Professional headphones have been specifically designed to meet the expectations and requirements of Recording Studios, Home Studios and Broadcasting Studios.




Reference Studio Headphones


The extreme care paid to the design of the Mylar - Titanium alloy transducer enabled us to combine rigidity, lightness and high damping properties to preserve the dynamics of the audio signal and to provide remarkably neutral sound without any distortion.


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.

Design: comfort and simplicity

The circum-aural design of the Spirit Professional headphones was chosen to optimize the acoustic coupling to the ear. This monitoring tool for professional recording studios is also suitable for broadcasting or home studios, where the noise level is much higher. This is the reason why these closedtype headphones were the obvious solution.


The frequency of use and the length of time they are used for are two of the most important aspects to take into account when designing professional headphones. The optimisation of the comfort of the headphones was essential. Thus, the choice to use memory foam for the ear-pieces and mthe headband ensures a perfect fit regardless of user’s morphology. Moreover, the large earpieces guarantee a remarkable insulation whilst reducing the pressure level.


Finally, the Black Textured finish gives the headphones a simplistic look and as well as a shock- and scratch-resistant quality.




Acoustics: neutrality and transparency for total control


The close attention paid to the design of the Mylar/Titanium alloy drivers ensures sound reproduction which respects the original dynamics of the audio signal without distortion, preventing auditory fatigue.


The neutrality of tonal balance combined with the remarkably high-definition enable the reproduction of all audio signals, even at the lowest of listening volumes. Finally, work on the acoustical load of the transducers has resulted in articulated bass worthy of open-style headphones, but with the advantages of insulation.


The low-impedance OFC coiled cable (13ft/4m) enhances the transparency of sound, an important concept for the brand.

Rich and natural sound


Never wanting to change music as it’s intended, with Sphear, Focal also offers a sound which is precise and clear, and extremely faithful to the original music. These unique in-ear headphones offer harmonic richness, from the low end to the high end, for true listening pleasure.


Our research and development teams have perfected a Mylar driver whose specific shape and ridging were designed to avoid deformation and distortion. Equipped with an acoustic chamber with port for providing remarkable neutrality, such astonishing tonal balance has never been heard before from this family of headphones.


The spherical design of Sphear’s ear-pieces makes it possible to have a larger driver than usual. The 10.8mm multi-channel transducer, one of the biggest in its category, and the Bass Reflex system provide extended frequency response in the low end and ultra realistic bass. Additionally, the bass level on Sphear has been slightly increased for mobile use in noisy environments.
