ApolliNerd's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Ok but uncomfortable"

Focal Spirit One
I do not know if the Focal is a good choice, if only for the lack of comfort. Moreover, these headphones are suitable for a certain type of music in my opinion. A little pricey for what it is.

Well, you should know that comfort Focal are not their strong point, which makes their use in complicated long sessions.

Robust enough, I did not notice any notable degradation after 2 years utiilisation, the connection is solid.

Ideal for classical and giving a beautiful rendered faithful, this headset is quite frustrating for amplified music, lacking roundness in the bass.

Focal Spirit One
Over 1 year now

AKG / Sony / Sennheiser / Beyerdynamic

What I love the most .... er .... perhaps we did change 3 times and it deserves to be still .... Oh yes, I also love myself realized that my monitor speakers I should not buy the home.

What I like least ... surely Focal consideration to these customers

If I would do this choice? Ahahahahaa certainly NOT me who concidérait Focal as a luxury brand of audio, what an idiot I was.

Nomadic use intensive project but remained too fragile so casual because sometimes at home and
Very hot like winter
reggae / funk / blues / metal / bossa / electro / jazz / afrobeat / All music ...

very fragile and if you have a big head I can not imagine, I think the headphone does not surporterait

detachable connectors and comprehensive

Very very effective passive isolation

very good audio quality

Focal Spirit One
I use it for 6 months and I tried the Sony, the prodipe of Akg and this is one of the best in its category!

For miking acoustic guitar, and anything that is not too strong ...

FOr listening to the jazz and blues is a killer ...

For now it is good despite several crashes ...

It is well balanced and password for all styles especially jazz and blues and everything is warm

terry91's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" not terrible"

Focal Spirit One
on my way home I compare with my old Sony headphones at 60 € and not much difference,
the sound is clearer more precise in the midrange but less bass compared to Sony
I compared with other fnac demo, it is equivalent to a sound headphone € 60/80
it is only the most comfort,
but what I want is the sound, what a disappointment, and the icing on the cake
Today, more sound on the right side so that it is never out of my house and used 5 times
I checked with other cables, it is the same, more sound on the right channel,
it is expensive € 200 for 5 plays of hours
it lasted 3 months

Birdix's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" A Reference?"

Focal Spirit One
Utillisé twenty hours 3 days I know it is not reasonable.

Tested and KossPortaPro Beyer.DT 770 (80 Ohm).

Cons:
Seems flimsy facing a DT 770, one certe Ref. side strength.
For use on mobile and personal forgives him.

Amplitude settings of the arch, a big head will not be able to place the headphones on his ears, personally I'm at the end of the race is far from the case of two model mentioned above.

Goodies: Sorry but I could not place sufisament and words ...

Listening: From the first second a bad presentiment immediately dissipated I left over an hour as Koss, I was in the outside and closed headphones out I do not suporte.

Clearly we are in the right view is very good very clean clear across the spectrum are chained various ways to find fault, I note that the spectacular view Ataques are good, the performance is similar to Koss and the next one too rich deep bass of Beyer is not present.

Side comfort Bha it's like a new pair of godasse at first it hurts a little, diameter of bearing a fair bit, but by adjusting the headphones in a circular motion to bring my "big lobe auricul'air" it does ...
It tiend moin hotter than the Beyer tiend well on the head, no noise ... So far I suporte very well.

I return to the Son because it is his goal it seems, for the mobile market bha it's too good, it will not come out of it, I get too beaucout in music, say rather that m 'invaded too, but what is good.
Everything is there when there is severe on the recording you can hear it really makes the difference low battery, stamps seem just "Harmonics" and placed well, a bit too high for Koss and a bit too low for Beyer ... history of trying to make themselves understood.

Its dynamic range is not missing, Associate attacks frank, it is likely that either one of these points gives this headphone precision in playing nuances of interpreters I too rarrement course, the difference between ff and fff you to Pete G. ... Sometimes it will become in carricatural with its multitude of little details that are grafted on stuff specifically heard a thousand times.

Clearly oriented Hifiste music lover ...

I do not understand why Red LED in the test product does not intend to mix, but not certe Mix Dj Mix music side equalization levels and frequencies I would confience more focal than the Beyer is OK or the 880 or 990 and then do not mix with headphones.
And if it is in a big studio with it will quickly pass détuit I think, it is a tool that the personal: Please not touch

Said Mr Focal unn other cable longer it will not have been a lux, because finding a mini jack OD OK I might get it ...... lonnnggggggttteeeeemmmmmppppps

Q / P: the market rate.

I would do well on this choice, although I only have two ears, a second will be a great flow.

For electrodynamics and the only model of the brand: TRANSFORMS TEST.
A product which is placed in between the brand and CMS 65 Paier TWIN. Although we can not compare headphones and speakers.

NB: I do not work for Focal, I've always loved the sound Koss especially upscale 80s Pro4A Pro4X (The PortaPro had sold more than 600 francs at the time, approx. 100 of our current euro).
And early 90's I listened to the first faith a DT 100 and I said: finally someone who knows how to make a headphone.

ricoute's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" just further notice"

Focal Spirit One
I have not bought just tried

It seemed coherent with respect and in the same spirit that Audio technica ath 50 or xone xd53 allen this is only an impression (because no comparison instannée (I listened to the same songs with fnac and headphones home so concerned 1h interval but I do have a very good auditory memory

To return to the previous opinion, it seems that the balance is down, I can not say absolutely, what is true is that we have a lack of details a bit frustrating and evident in the medium acute believing that it is a little stuffy in the middle / upper spectrum

After impact is low can be caused by membranes 40mm while this kind of model (€ 200) it is often a diameter of 50/54mmm which may explain, I do not know in what are alloy magnets, membranes and materials explaining the relative wisdom (a bit similar to some of the headphones K2xx/5xx/7xx akg)

In purpose, this headphone is not a model of monitoring or studio, so it has a stereo listening wiser ... so a priori listening less sharp and detailed (though I hate rendering of outrageous 7502/7506 / 7509 sony) and écxoute more ... timid!!

After one should not compare a 900 to 350 € ath nearly double, and it is true that audio technica headphones is excellent, much better overall than ex ... by Sennheiser (sf the HD25!)
