With the Elegia, Focal stakes the claim to producing the best dynamic-driver closed-back headphones in the world. These headphones feature a powerful bass with deep extension, and a slightly warm midrange characteristic, and of course the eye-blinking punch you’ve come to expect after headphones like the Clear and Utopia. As with the other high-end Focal headphone designs, the Elegia pairs very well with our Gilmore Lite mk2 and GS-X mini.
To enjoy an incredible listening experience in total privacy, without worrying about a noisy environment disturbing this moment of pleasure: this is the promise kept by Elegia. These circum-aural closed-back headphones incorporate a new generation of exclusive full-range speaker drivers capable of operating in a small inner environment whilst ensuring exceptional dynamics and the most precise sound reproduction. Whether it’s the motor, the frameless copper voice coil, the dedicated 110 micron surround or the ’M’-shape inverted dome, Elegia’s speaker drivers are a mass of innovation dedicated to sound purity. And when connected to portable audio players, these headphones are incredibly high-performing. Zero resonance, excellent soundproofing: the naturalness and realism of the sound is striking from the first few seconds of listening.
Focal headphones have focused on optimizing the dynamic driver, using their vast knowledge to create radical designs, pushing far beyond the old boundaries. The result is incredibly resolving headphones with powerful, lifelike snap and energy. Focal ‘s headphone models are efficient, working well with a variety of amplifiers, and their transparency showcases every component in the system.
