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.

Open-Back Design

Headphones with an open-back design, allow air to pass through the earcups. This means that Open-Backs do not block any noise from around you, as closed-backs do, and music being heard will also leak outside to people around you. So they can only be heard in a quiet environment.

However, Open-back headphones do sound more natural and open. Open-back headphones create a feeling of space, presenting audio as if you are sitting at a live concert. Audiophiles swear by open-back headphones, and they sound quite different to closed-backs.

These headphones are perfect for critical listening sessions, mixing and mastering music. They have an accurate soundstage presentation and precise imaging.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

The end game product but with equivalent accessory

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!
