Focal Utopia Overview

For the last 35 years, Focal has dedicated itself to developing top-of-the-line drivers and loudspeakers. Focal has dubbed Utopia its “flagship headphones,” and a quick peek at the specifics makes it easy to understand why. These reference, high-fidelity headphones have truly paved the way when it comes to reproducing audio that’s almost as good as an actual loudspeaker.

Featuring a built-in wide range loudspeaker (which has never been done before), beryllium drivers and open back, over-ear design, the Utopia headphones will transform your favorite (and least favorite) tunes. Hear chords, instruments and vocals you might have missed for years, and let yourself get taken away.  Add a carbon fiber yoke, leather headband and lambskin leather, memory foam earcups to the mix, and it’s clear Utopia leads the way in terms of natural, clear audio and luxurious design.

Open Back Design for an Exceptional Listening Experience

Manufactured in France, Focal is well-known for technical innovations like the Utopia Open Back Over Ear Headphones. The open back design of the over ear headphones gives you an all-around listening experience ideal for sitting at home or other low-noise environments. The aesthetically pleasing design is as functional as it is beautiful, and it reproduces audio signals with such purity it can transcend a listener. Utopia are the flagship headphones for the company and 35 years of innovation and development power has gone into making these over ear headphones, designing them to be an acoustic delight for music lovers everywhere. 

One of a Kind Loudspeaker Built Right Into the Headphones

The built-in loudspeakers are made of an exclusive pure Beryllium ‘M’ shaped dome, turning the over ear headphones into a personal ported speaker that you can wear. The design of the ‘M’ shaped dome is rigid but extremely light, and the lightweight design makes for better acceleration and resolution of the sound. The Beryllium transfers sound velocity more than twice as fast as aluminum and is much more rigid while its unique open back design reduces trapped air behind the dome. 

These technological innovations come together to produce amazing clarity, realism and dynamic sound. The Utopia Open Back Over Ear Headphones and wide range loudspeaker built within the headphones results in a frequency response of 5Hz to more than 50kHz without using any crossover or passive filtering process. This gives you as pure a sound as you could hope for from a set of headphones. 

Mechanical Design Fits Any Size and Shape of Head

The carbon fiber yoke with a lambskin leather sheath on the headband provides ultimate listening comfort. Lambskin leather is also used on the ear cushions along with memory foam, so you get a soft feel and a light weight. Focal hasn’t passed on any little detail in the elegant design of the Utopia Open Back Over Ear Headphones. The mechanical design elements include a constant bend in the headband, evenly distributed weight throughout the headphones and an ideal setting of the yoke and ear pieces so that anyone can find the right fit. The sophisticated technology of the Utopia headphones is designed for comfort as much as it is for high end audio reproduction.

Easily Customizable with Balanced Cable Channel Separation

There's hardly any crosstalk in the totally symmetrical cable supplied with the Utopia Open Back Over Ear Headphones. The 3m cable is specifically selected to provide acoustic transparency and keep the original audio signal as pure as possible with very low impedance. Protective shielding allows for a convenient extended length without electromagnetic interference affecting the sound quality. The two shielded 9.5mm LEMO connectors have a self-locking bayonet design system and the 6.35mm NERO jack connector make the headphones customizable for your needs.

I have many High end Phones. With sonarworks it is the most neutral phone I have ever heared. The size of instruments and their distance is pricesley rendered. No other phone can do this.
Also each recording shows its different room size.
Many other headphones have their one footprint on all recordings.

Listening to classical music, I auditioned Focal Utopia and Audeze LCD-4Z. Both are excellent, but I thought Utopias sounded more like what I hear in the concerts I attend. I especially appreciated the rendering of violins in higher tonal range.
