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.


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.
