New Media Catalogue

Between acoustic excellence and new trends…

With 35 years of experience in the design and manufacture of speaker drivers and hi-fi loudspeakers, Focal has also been displaying its expertise in new ways to listen to music in recent years. This is the DNA of the New Media Collection: while its design and miniaturization are different from the usual form of our traditional loudspeakers, the heart of the product, the authenticity of the sound, the quest for excellence, are exactly the same...

Focal has always focused all its attention on the reproduction of a textured and rich sound. Our unique know-how, our many patented technological innovations, the use of specific materials: all of these components are symbols of the attention we pay down to the smallest details. Details that enable us to better manage all of the factors that influence sound quality. Controlling the mass, rigidity and damping provides our cones with strong acceleration and low distortion. The result is dynamic real and natural sound that is unique to Focal, and a major asset in terms of responding to the demands of audiophiles and other music lovers.

At the same time, the music world has undergone many changes in recent years.

Access to music is easier than ever with files going digital. The trend towards miniaturization has opened the door to new players, the "plug & play" solutions are buzzing all around, sources are many and wireless, and TVs are becoming sources in their own right. In short, uses evolve and music is everywhere, at the flick of a switch.

In this context, Focal decided to integrate these new ways of listening into its range, including miniaturization of speakers, but without compromising the quality of the music, which forms a core part of our values. This challenge required the expertise of our enthusiastic engineers and gave rise to the New Media Collection: multimedia wireless speakers, mini

Home Cinema systems and satellites, subwoofers or even headphones all have the characteristic of a tailor-made design and with great ease of use and integration.

The New Media Focal are products adapted to new uses, to which we applied the formulas that have made our classic ranges a success to bring out real hi-fi products and to remain true to our values while satisfying our customers of today and tomorrow.

>

For over 35 years Focal has been developing and manufacturing loudspeakers for the home, speaker drivers for the car, monitor speakers for recording studios and more recently headphones.

Market leader in high-fidelity, Focal’s worldwide reputation is well known: our brand is recognised everywhere for its sound quality and its numerous technological innovations.

Dimension,

The Real TV Sound

Building on 35 years of expertise when it comes to the expectations of music and home-cinema fans in terms of sound, Focal infuses its acoustic know-how into a new sound object: the soundbar Dimension.

A key innovation is the five patented high-bandwidth and ultra-thin speakers, offering a very low frequency response and featuring a central inverted dome which radiates the treble.

We were very quick to notice that most soundbars try to seduce consumers by combining a compact design with adequate sound power, even if it means forsaking clarity and neutrality of dialogues. Easy to install and use,

It results in a very shallow depth of

65mm and a remarkable coherence across the audio spectrum, regardless of listening position.

innovative and distinctive by its acoustic design, Dimension goes further and provides flat screens with real power, excellent audio quality and a perfect integration.

The Spirit Professional headphones are the direct result of Focal’s historical expertise in the design of high-performance transducers.

In line with the Focal Professional monitor range, this monitoring solution will exceed the

Studios, Broadcast environments as well as

Home Studios’ expectations and needs.

Spirit Professional is an exceptional work tool, capable of ensuring high-quality control of monitoring activities. The close attention paid to the design of the Mylar/Titanium alloy speaker drivers ensures sound reproduction, which respects the original dynamics of the audio signal offering remarkably high definition and neutrality. Finally, the extremely precise reproduction of bass frequencies detects the slightest of imperfections in a mix freed from the acoustic constraints related to the size of their workstation.

In a studio environment, comfort is critical for a professional headphone that will be used for extended periods of time. The circum-aural closed design of the

Spirit Professional headphones was chosen to optimise fitment around the ear and memory foam was used for the ear pieces and the headband to ensure a perfect fit regardless of user’s morphology.

The Black Textured finish gives the headphones a simplistic look and providing excellent shock and scratch-resistant qualities.
