Designed in France by Focal’s acoustics engineers, Listen combine all the advantages of premium portable headphones for hours of intense listening pleasure. Excellent noise isolation is guaranteed with the closed-back design and by the large ear cushions which preserve the headphones’ acoustic qualities, even in noisy environments. The heat-sensitive, very high-density memory foam ear-pieces offer maximum comfort for the listener. Finally, at the source of Listen’s acoustic qualities are the innovative 1¾″ (40mm) drivers. Thus, Listen has an extremely dynamic sound, tight bass and remarkable tonal balance. These qualities are what make Listen the ideal travelling companion: listening pleasure, everywhere.

Our Take

A revelation in the portable audio space! The FOCAL Listen offers a superb bundle of features, including smartphone compatibility, removable cable, foldable design, and durable build, and does so with a well-balanced audiophile-oriented sound signature. No boomy bass or muddy midrange here, the Listen takes control and offers sound quality previously unheard of in an affordably priced closed-back headphone.  If you need an everyday, everywhere closed headphone, look no further.
