Replaceable Cables

A pair of headphones with a replaceable cable has many benefits, and one of them is if the connecting cable has a problem, it doesn’t mean that you have to buy a new one. If the connecting cable gets pulled or damaged, you can replace it and keep using your good-old headphones or IEMs. This way, your headphones will be protected and will last longer. With the advancements in cable manufacturing, you now get a variety of replacement cables with various termination options, lengths and quality.


Closed-Back Design

Headphones with a Closed-Back design are completely sealed around the ear cup, allowing the sound to travel directly into your ears. This means that closed-back headphones block out outside noise, giving much better isolation, and minimising sound leakage to those around you.


Needs Amplification

Headphones and IEMs require a certain level of power to sound their best and work at their full potential. When your headphones or IEMs are underpowered, they can sound thin or muffled.


Amplifiers are required to provide adequate power to your headphone or IEMs to perform at their best. Simply put, amplifiers allow a weak audio signal to be boosted to a powerful one.


To put it into perspective, devices such as your phones and laptops come with an amplifier, but they offer very limited output power. This output may not be sufficient to power headphones and IEMs to shine at their best. This is where a dedicated amplifier is required to deliver adequate power to hear your music in all its glory.


Discover The Purest Form Of Sound With Focal's Closed-Back Headphone

Celestee combines cutting-edge design, opulent materials, and phenomenal sound quality. Focal's proprietary speaker drivers offer High-precision sound and excellent dynamics. The earcups have undergone acoustic treatment to prevent resonance and achieve uncompromised audio quality. The result is a clear, precise sound with good bass extension.

40mm Aluminium And Magnesium Dynamic Driver

Celestee is a closed-back circum-aural headphone hosting 40mm aluminium/magnesium electrodynamic full-range speaker drivers. These produce outstanding dynamics and have a linear frequency response that extends up to 23 kHz. Extremely accurate sound reproduction is present. The larger emissive surface area of the 'M'-shaped inverted dome speaker drivers greatly improves listening clarity.

Easy Drivability & Optimum Isolation

Celestee is the perfect headphone for use around the house or when you're out and about because they were made to be used at home and on the go. With a portable audio player, their low impedance (35 Ohms) ensures uncompromised sound. The semi-aniline leather earpads and the earcup design offer comfort and soundproofing of the headphones. 

Semi-Aniline Leather Provides Greater Comfort

A stainless steel grille is placed on top of the leather-covered earcups. The earpads are made of semi-aniline leather, while the headband is made of leather on the outside and microfiber on the inside. High-quality materials have a significant impact on the Celestee's design, appearance, and comfort. The controlled geometry of the aluminium yoke allows it to perfectly conform to the head while; still offering excellent grip and even more comfort. Whether at home or on the go, Celestee conveys the intensity of every listening moment.

24 Hours Of Burn-In Period

Celeste requires a running-in period to operate at their best. Focal recommends playing very bassy music through them for at least 24 hours at a relatively high volume. This methodology will stabilise the speaker drivers and allow you to get the best performance out of your headphones.

A Colourway That Impresses The Rest

Navy Blue is a timeless and sophisticated choice for Celestee. It is the first time this blue has made an appearance in the Focal collection. It blends harmoniously with the Soft Copper finish found on the rings of the earcups, internal grilles, logo and cable connections.

3.5mm Cable With 6.35mm Adapter

The 3.5mm single-ended cables are among the most commonly used audio cables and are widely available. Many portable or desktop DAC & Amps feature a 3.5mm or a 6.35mm audio output jack, making single-ended cables a popular choice.

Thermoformed Storage Case

The protective carrying case keeps your headphones safe from accidental bumps and scratches and allows you to carry your headphones safely wherever you go. The protective case is thermoformed in the shape of the headphones.

I love the Focal Celestee. They're gorgeous to look at and hold in your hand. The attention to detail and build is second to none. Focal made the Celestee to be a warm and laidback sounding. But as a closed-back, it's hard to find a better-sounding headphone in this segment.

RAGHAV SOMANI

Right out of the box, the Focal Celestee headphones are just spectacular. They deliver an audio performance that is simply out of this world by fusing fine craftsmanship, cutting-edge technology, and unwavering attention to detail.

Absoulutely incredible

I was a little skeptical at first when buying the Focal Celestee, given the price and the fact that, coming from an HD660S, I didn't expect the increment in sound quality to be that much. But, boy was I surprised with the quality once this burnt in.
Having used the Celestee for almost 3 weeks, I'm so happy with the sound quality and the overall sound signature. Super detailed and not too bright is how I would define the highs, the mids are perfect and the bass just gives you a nice tight hug when powered by the right source (I use my Schiit Hel 2E and Denon AVR). If you are looking to power it off a phone, please not that the bass may not be as dynamic or pronounced as it may be on a dedicated dac-amp.
The build quality needs no comments, its top notch. I had a little creaking, but it sorted itself out after some use. The accessories are also great, love having them around. Focal says this is a portable headphone, but clearly the definition of portable is different in France. The headphones in the carrying case is as large as a neck pillow and as wide as my work laptop. I still carry them regardless. Once you experience this quality, there is no going back in my opinion.
Pros:
- Excelled sound quality
- Detailed bass and dynamics
- Warm sound
- Build quality
Cons:
- Cable is too stiff and short, even for casual listening
- A little creaking from the left yolk
- Not exactly portable
- Very large carrying case and it doesn't fold, like a DC audio Aeon Noire
Conclusion:
An amazing pair of headphones for the price, if you have a great source to power the pair, it just enhances the listening experience exponentially. An additional benefit, it is just so beautiful to look at. Would highly recommend anyone looking to go ahead and consider this as a top option. If you can go have a lit
I would also like to thank Ian from the Headphone Zone team for clearing my queries and recommending this pair.

Thanks a lot for your detailed and genuine feedback, we're glad that you have such positive thoughts about the product and we'll share your thoughts with the brand as well. It'll also help our fellow customers to make the right choice!

Best Close back I've heard

The build quality is excellent as you would expect from a Focal.
The soundstage is narrow which would be considered as a downside. The sound quality makes it so good that you will feel the difference if you are upgrading from a bluetooth headphone. The bass response is very good and you can feel the bass. It can be run without an amplifier, but it sure as hell benefits from one. I paired it with a zen dac v2 and the difference in sound quality was night and day. Overall, a very good headphone, very well worth the price.

Hey there, nothing makes us happier than knowing you loved your purchase, hope you had a comfortable shopping experience and thank you for the great review and ratings!
