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.
> F or 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.
It results in a very shallow depth of

choosing the on-wall installation,
Focal imagined a support, which is
perfectly adapted to associate simply the screen and the soundbar on

Dedicated to sound and comfort
Very first Focal in-ear headphones, Sphear
breaks with conventions and proves that
high-fidelity in-ear headphones can be
used for hours on end without the slightest
Its innovative concept when it comes to shape,
Sphear has redefined the approach towards
the ear canal: memory foam or silicone
tips on the front adapt naturally to the ear;
an extended housing at the back shifts the
weight of the headphones to the inferior
auricle of the ear. This relieves the ear canal
from excessive volume and weight which
generally resulted in temporary discomfort.
10.8-mm transducers successfully provide
surprising tonal balance never heard before
in this family of headphones. It is faithful to
Focal’s historic acoustic signature, the “Spirit
of Sound”, with a particularly rich mid-range
which is never muffled. Moreover, the bass
level on Sphear has been slightly increased
for mobile use in noisy environments. Finally,
these in-ear headphones offer harmonic
richness from the low end to the high end, for
true listening pleasure.
Sphear are the most accomplished in-ear
headphones to date, the most comfortable
and the most generous for enjoying your
music, wherever you are. In this age of “HighResolution”, through its spherical design and
its preservation of Focal’s acoustic signature,
Sphear provides a unique solution for those
passionate for high-definition sound.

Spirit Classic is a closed headphones with
premium materials and sophisticated finishes
(solid, brushed and polished aluminium).
The large circum-aural ear cups, the use
of memory foam cushions and the large
headband offer more comfort during long
listening sessions.
Ear cushions perfectly fit with the head shape

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.
