This might be the perfect closed-back headphone, as it does almost everything right. First of all, it's supremely comfortable, it's lighter than other Focals closed-backs, it also clamps less and the leather on the headband and the earpads is very soft. Like other Focals closed-backs, it's very easy to drive, it's reasonably portable and also seals good enough.

Now the sound. It is very resolving but not overwhelmingly so - it presents the details in a very subtle way and often you need more than one listen to truly appreciate how much resolution it can pull out of the music. Soundstage is average in size, but it's the most 3D-like out of any closed-back I've heard. It can clearly position sounds far in the front/back and up/down. Bass is the star of the show here, it's so good. It punches with a force and slams with a weight. And the sub-bass is unbelievable, it sounds like a planar when it comes to detail and resolution in the sub-bass. Mids are a bit forward and treble is a bit smoothed down. Overall they sound neutral, maybe a little bit warm; although I did find a couple of songs that sound a little bit sharp or sibilant. Timbre is alright, not the most natural sounding headphone, but still very good. It plays well with almost kind of music, however, poorly recorded songs or songs in low quality will not sound good with these as they are very resolving and will show them for what they are.

Bottom line is, that this headphone, as far as closed-backs go, is the closest one to perfection. It is not perfect, but it does match most of the boxes for me. I've been on the audiophile journey for the past two years and have been interested in closed-backs mostly. I knew about the Stellia, but I've been avoiding it because I thought it was too expensive and in the meantime I've passed though dozens of other closed-backs. Boy if I only knew how good it is, I would have definitely ditched every other headphone I've collected in that time.

So yes, it's expensive, but if you can afford it and you listen to well recorded or in general high quality music, you should definitely give it a shot.

Very Good!

The best Sound that is available for a Closed Headphone.

Beware of Headphone-Bleed though. You cannot listen on high Volumes, before your sound "bleeds" in the environment and is audible for example in the train or your colleagues at work.

Perfekter Sound für einen geschlossenen Kopfhörer. Braucht aber 50 Stunden Einspielzeit um sein Potential zu entfalten.

Just received my Stellia headphones yesterday and have only spent a couple of hours with them thus far. Much like my Aria's, I totally love their sound and aesthetic. A marvel to behold and listen to, and haven't yet completed the "burn in" process of 24 hours of high volume/high bass music. But I have already arrived at my conclusion that these headphones are my portal to musical bliss. Looking forward to years of practicing my religion, which is what I often call listening to music. Thank you Focal for allowing me to experience an even higher level of musical appreciation than I have ever done before with headphones.
