In the chase for the ultimate listening experience, you will encounter headphones, flagship headphones, and then have end-game headphones like the Focal Utopia. Utopia belongs to a league of its own and distinguishes itself with superior clarity, cutting-edge engineering and pristine sound. Focal’s Utopia are without question one of the finest pairs of headphones money can buy.
FOCAL PRESENTS THEIR UPGRADED FLAGSHIP OPEN-BACK, HIGH-FIDELITY HEADPHONES - THE UTOPIA
Focal has 40+ Years of Audio Expertise and Innovation. Innovation, performance, and excellence are their brand values. For its unique technology, Focal is a brand that is well-known throughout the world. The market-leading products that offer natural performance filled with clarity and power are the fruits of Focal's technological innovation. Focal is now proudly introducing an all-new Utopia, an evolution of the legendary Utopia (2016). Focal's legendary flagship headphone, the Utopia (2016), now has an improved design, new materials, reliability improvements, and subtle changes to an already phenomenal sonic experience. The design is modern, the new voice coil promises to be more reliable, and the recycled forged carbon yoke is light and sturdy. Most significantly, the sound quality is still excellent. The differences in acoustic design are the honeycomb grills on the ear cups. Focal has added an 'M'-shaped grille inside of the driver to help improve linearity in the high frequencies when you compare it to the Utopia (2016). The voice coil has also seen changes, the Utopia (2016) had an all-aluminium voice coil, and the new Utopia has a mixture of aluminium and copper, which tames down the highs a little. On the speaker driver's motor unit, there is a black and red double grille that adds to the aesthetics and acoustic performance of the driver. The new Utopia is fundamentally the same fantastic headphone as its predecessor and has been improved; in every way.
INNOVATION MEETS TECHNOLOGY FOR THE 40MM PURE BERYLLIUM SPEAKER DRIVER TO DELIVER AN UNPARALLELED LISTENING PLEASURE
Focal has always strived to improvise and come up with noteworthy innovations. Focal's all-new Utopia has broken all barriers concerning; the way they sound as monumental as full-range speakers. Innovation meets technology, allowing you to experience and have a distinctive approach to sound. The Utopia unveiled in 2016; is the result of; more than 40 years of sound innovation. It is back in 2022 with a revised design and enhanced audio for an even, more musically inspired feeling. The new Utopia features a 40mm full-range speaker driver with an open-back pure Beryllium "M"-shaped dome. Focal engineers have incorporated pure Beryllium mainly because of its sonic properties. The pure Beryllium reduces distortion and allows the driver to function at its best delivering pure, rich, melodic sound. The challenge of reproducing the experience of listening to the best Focal loudspeakers has been met; by Focal engineers with the all-new Utopia! The end product is a set of speaker drivers that operate; from 5Hz to more than 50 kHz with no active or passive correction. The complete disappearance of the headphones leaves behind audio signal reproduction that is unparalleled in purity. Close your eyes, and you'll be able to; feel the musicians playing next to you because of Utopia's remarkably realistic, precise, and powerful sound.
EXPERIENCE MUSIC LIKE NEVER BEFORE WITH AN OPEN-BACK DESIGN THAT OFFERS PRECISE IMAGING AND ACCURATE SOUNDSTAGE
The new Utopia is a no-compromise headphone that delivers a transparent and entirely natural representation of even the most complicated recordings, thanks to Focal's exclusive driver technologies. Its outstanding presentation produces incredible tonality, scale, and dynamics. Without the use of boosted bass frequencies designed to colour the timbre, it offers a wider vertical soundstage and real-time timbre performance. You will be able to; imagine and place each instrument considering the stage of your recording. The soundstage and imaging will give you the impression that you are watching a live performance while seated in a concert hall. The Utopia offers an immersive listening experience. Because of its open-back design, it exudes depth and space. As a result, you will be engulfed in an intricately precise sonic voyage!
NOTE: BURN-IN PERIOD: These headphones require a burn-in period to operate at their best. They will run themselves in naturally after several hours of listening time. If you want to speed up the process, Focal recommends playing very bassy music through them for at least 24 hours at a relatively high volume. This will stabilise the speaker drivers and allow you to get the best out of your headphones.
ELEGANT DESIGN FUSED WITH FORGED RECYCLED CARBON AND PERFORATED MEMORY FOAM EAR PADS FOR OPTIMUM COMFORT AND A LUXURIOUS FEEL
Utopia, a pair of French headphones that combine comfort and luxury, is constructed of genuine leather, aluminium, forged recycled carbon, honeycomb-style grilles, and rings that are Black Chrome in colour. Utopia's High-quality components and streamlined design improve the listening experience tenfold. Like the symbolic Yin & Yang depicted on the earcups, Utopia embodies beautiful design and high-performing sound in perfect harmony. More than just headphones, this is a sound icon. Sobriety and distinction go hand in hand; to create a Utopia. It features honeycomb grilles on the exterior and inside of the earcups, mimicking Focal's open-back (Clear Mg) and closed-back (Stellia and Celestee) headphones' looks. It offers subtle and sophisticated aesthetic touches, such as crimson glimpses of the speaker drivers' motor unit or the Yin & Yang effect visible on the exterior shell, symbolising design and technology in perfect harmony, in addition to its Black Chrome-colored rings, now screwed on from the inside. The forged, recycled carbon yoke is a beautiful design element that makes the headphones lighter and more uniformly distributed on the skull. Comfort and suppleness are provided by the perforated lambskin memory foam ear pads and genuine leather-bound headband.
BUILT TO PERFECTION AND COMES BUNDLED WITH A BLACK FAUX LEATHER CASE AND HIGH-FIDELITY CABLES ALONGWITH ACCESSORIES
Focal is known to design headphones that radiate elegance and beauty. Focal's headphones have amazed the critics with their design and aesthetics giving each pair a luxurious feel. The most obvious; change in the new Utopia is the grille pattern on the ear cups. The yoke on the new Utopia is carbon fibre, which helps with weight distribution on the head. But this time, engineers at Focal have used forged, recycled carbon, so each piece has a different pattern. This design adds visual aesthetics with an all-black finish. It has a flatter finish, which makes it far less likely to scratch and accumulate oil from your fingertips, making it simpler to keep looking good. Each grille now features a flame logo in the middle. On; the speaker driver's motor unit, there is a black and red double grille, and the visible red adds a splash of colour when looking into the centre of the ear cups. The subtle yin-yang pattern on the ear cups' outer casing is another new feature. According to Focal, this symbolises the harmony of technology and design. Lambskin leather covers the memory foam on the earpads and headbands, making Utopia; a pleasant; pair. Utopia is packaged in faux-leather and includes a black fabric thermoformed carrying bag, two high-fidelity cables (10ft and 5ft / 3m and 1.5m) with 3.5mm termination, as well as Lemo® connectors and a Jack adaptor for use while travelling or at home with an amplifier. The package also includes a 10ft. (3m) cable, ideal for use at home on a high-end amplifier, thanks to its balanced 4-pin XLR connector and two Lemo® connectors. It also includes 1 x Jack adapter, 1/8" (3.5mm) female – 1/4" (6.35mm) male.

First of all, there's no doubt that this is end game product and you need not to upgrade if you own these. This is a addictive product, and you always want it to be on your ear and when it's not on your ear you feel where is this and you would like to skip your daily schedule just to have this thing back on your ear. You would like yourself to dwelve yourself into the details of your soundtrack, the instruments, how the instrument in your track actually sound, the clear background voices along with leading voice and again instruments that you have been missing previously, the dyanamics, the musicality, everything. But let me clear you about the reviews you already read online. The reviews you read actually, must have noticed the dac and amp used in for the review. Those dac and amp used ain't no cheap. Ofcourse you paid a hefty sum amount to buy this but unless you pay same equal amount to buy its equivalent headphone amp and dac you won't achieve the sound what you have read in the reviews online. Ofcourse your hefty amount spent on this ain't going waste if you don't have high end dac bcoz this is as it is designed to blow hell out of you. This will what happen if you use this terrific headphone with following
With a phone having inbuilt dac like lg v60 thinq : you will get all the details that can be achieved but in a compressed manner but still far better than from the headphones you were till now listening to.
With seperately purchased dac amp between 50k to 1 lakh rupees like fiio f9 of hifiman ef400 : with addition to above, upto some extent instrumental separation and clarity.
But to get what reviewed in online that 3 dimensity and to get out most of the juice out of your headphone, you have to for price equal to it.
We're really happy that you have such great thoughts about the product and thanks for the amazing review!
