Spirit Professional, "Listen to your music, not to your headphones!"
PRESS RELEASE • AUGUST 2013
Spirit Professional,
"Listen to your music, not to your headphones!"
The Spirit Professional headphones are the direct result of Focal’s historical expertise in the design
of high-performance transducers. In line with the French manufacturer’s monitoring loudspeakers,
the Spirit Professional headphones ensure high-quality control of monitoring activities without
exception, freeing professionals from the acoustic constraints related to the size of their workstation.
Design: comfort and simplicity
Acoustics: neutrality and transparency for total control
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 closed-type 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 for the French manufacturer. The choice to
use memory foam for the ear-pieces and the headband
ensures a perfect fit regardless of user’s morphology.
What’s more, the dimensions of the ear-pieces have
been increased compared to the Spirit One headphones
in order to reduce the pressure level whilst guaranteeing
remarkable insulation. Finally, the Black textured finish
gives the headphones a simplistic look and as well as a
shock- and scratch-resistant quality.
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. Focal also provides a straight cable (4.6ft /
1.4m) with a built-in track selector and microphone
for receiving calls, the perfect accessory to ensure
maximum mobility.

Thanks to the Spirit Professional headphones, Focal
is able to offer a monitoring solution perfectly adapted
for the modern-day requirements of recording studios,
home studios and broadcast environments. This
professional equipment offers high levels of comfort and
remarkable precision. Finally, their capacity to detect the
slightest of imperfections in a mix allows users to free
themselves from the colouration of sound resulting from
workstations which haven’t been specifically designed
or which lack acoustic treatment.
Suggested retail price: 259 euros
