"Exciting, Colorful, Lively, and Compelling Performer"
Focal's Spirit One is a portable headphone with a neat, upscale design. It has a resolutely modern look and is made of carefully selected materials. It includes a remote control for your iPhone, iPod, and iPad. Spirit One is very lightweight. Thanks to its aluminum frame, it only weighs 8 oz. Its adjustable headband, swiveling ear cups, and sleek pads make it an easy-to-wear, high-fidelity headphone.
"Halleluja. Flip the wig. The works," proclaims the normally unexcitable Srajan Ebaen at 6moons.com. "From my high(er)-priced arsenal the closest match on performance/price came from AKG's K702 (gussied up with after-market cable no less)
Even so the half-priced Spirit One was the more exciting, colorful, lively, and compelling performer."
Optimal Sound Reproduction
Although its comfy, lightweight, and easily portable, Spirit One remains first and foremost a Focal headphone featuring audiophile performance. Its closed-back, circumaural design covers the whole ear to offer cutting-edge sound insulation. Sound reproduction is optimal: punchy, tight bass, no smearing and refined, sharp mids that are full and highly detailed, plus a wide bandwidth. Tonal respect, definition, yield and dynamics are all waiting for you!
More Than 20 dB Sound Isolation
Designed to be used on the go, Focal's Spirit One with its innovative closed-back design completely covers the ear to help keep out ambient noise. The passive sound isolation characteristics of the design provide sound reduction up to 20 dB without the use of electronic noise reduction circuitry. Cutting out ambient noise and doing it without electronic circuitry keeps the Spirit One's sound pure and lifelike. The cleverly engineered headband includes two pivots that allow the pads to hug the ears naturally, regardless of their shape and size.
100% Focal Comfort and Pleasure
Along with the great sound, the Spirit One offers unprecedented comfort, too. The headband was designed to evenly exert pressure for long term comfort. The choice and softness of the materials, the ear pad foam, and the 'feather' weight make it one of the lightest closed-back headphones on the market. Listening to music for hours is a real pleasure a 100-percent Focal pleasure.
Controls for Apple Devices
The Spirit One comes with an aluminum remote embedded in the 3.5-mm jack cord. Made for iPod and iPhone, and iPad-compatible, the remote lets you make calls and control the essential iPod, iPhone, and iPad functions, including volume, play, pause, and previous or next track.
