About Focal Headphones

French loudspeaker titans Focal made a huge splash in the headphone market with the release of their Utopia headphone in 2016, featuring innovations from their speaker lineup like Beryllium drivers.  Focal’s long history of speaker design stared in Saint-Étienne, France in 1979, and has produced a litany of patents for speaker technology.

Focal’s headphone lineup has focused on optimizing the dynamic headphone driver, using their vast knowledge to create radical designs, pushing far beyond the old boundaries.  The result are incredibly resolving headphones with powerful, lifelike snap and energy.  Focal’s headphones are efficient, working well with a variety of amplifiers, and their transparency showcases every component in the system.

Our Take

The new Focal Stellia headphone packs a detailed. dynamic punch, using the Beryllium driver technology of the Focal Utopia headphone, in a closed-back design, instantly making it one of the world’s premier closed headphones.  The Stellia is highly efficient and easy to drive, but like the Utopia, very revealing, so pair it with a top-flight source, and clean amp like our Gilmore Lite mk2, to hear the Stellia at its best.
