Immerse yourself in the freedom of wireless sound with these versatile headphones with mic featuring Bluetooth 4.1 connectivity. There is nothing to download or install, and your headphones will connect easily right out of the box. Like the wired version, the wireless Listen headphones deliver crystal-clear audio in a closed-back design for uninterrupted listening.
You remain isolated in your aural chamber, even when you encounter noise while you work, commute or travel. The wireless range lets you move around naturally within 50 feet of your audio source with no change in sound quality. When it’s time to power up, simply plug in to the USB port using the included charger cable.
These mobile-ready headphones are built with Focal’s exclusive driver cone technology that creates big sound with a distinctly full tonal range. Whether you listen to music, video, talk radio or take a call, you will hear exceptional, crisp sound from high-quality cone drivers that are titanium-coated and fine Mylar material for acoustic depth and breadth.
You can adjust the volume or change tracks on the fly with the easy-touch buttons on the right-hand cup. The high-density memory foam blocks out intrusions and, because it is heat-sensitive, the cups feel comfortable against your skin for hours of listening. Bring your headphones to work to help you concentrate and you won’t annoy colleagues with any audio leaks.
When taking calls, you’ll have no trouble being understood with the Clear Voice Capture system that uses two microphones to reproduce your voice. There is no fumbling with settings or connections because the headphones work seamlessly with any smartphone.
If you want, you can also bypass the Bluetooth and plug in to listen with the analog mini-jack cable. The high impedance (32 ohms) protection lets you connect with any source without concerns about overload.
The impressive Listen headphones series is made in France by quality manufacturer Focal. Designers of acoustic equipment since 1979, Focal has turned acoustic expertise built around speakers, amplifiers and loudspeakers to the development of high-end headphones.
Focal’s core business is high-quality drivers, with exclusive diaphragm technology and signature attention to materials. These headphones use Electrodynamic Mylar Titanium drivers that maintain clarity throughout the spectrum with dazzling tonal balance and especially rich bass.
Designed with a European sensibility, the headphones have a minimalist style that expresses itself in the smooth curves and subtle mix of matte and high gloss black finishes. The material is easy to clean by wiping with a soft cloth, without using soaps or detergents.
Your handsome headphones come packed in the box with detachable USB charging cable and mini-jack cable, if you want to connect to an analog source. The headphones fold at the joint on the headband to fit into an included carry bag with the cables for storage. Remember that it is not good for the drivers to press the padded ear cups together hard, even with the foam for protection.
