Great Sound

Great Headphones.....five stars price considered. You will need to spend another 600-1000 dollars to out class these. Match well with Tube Amp and they will reward you with some great sound. They are a little light in the bass for me. They are fast, articulate, with great high end. I like my sound with a little more air and space think Sennhieser or Audeze LCD series Super easy to drive which is big plus if using with a IOS Phone. Pleased with the purchase they can sure rock when you want it.

My New 'Go-To' Headphones

I looked high and low and read tons of reviews. I tried Grado GS1000e, Sennheiser HD650, Master & Dynamic MH40, and B&O H6. These are IT for build quality, design/style, comfort, versatility in the context of music genres, and overall acoustics. Closed ear headphones have their place, but if you are really after high fidelity presentation of the music...these open cans are the best that I have come across. It worked well with the various headphone amps I have...tube, hybrid and solid state....and coming straight out of my CD player. The Elear is a tremendously dynamic and musical headphone...an 'all rounder'. The bass is superb...punchy, tight, controlled. The mid's are clear and expansive. The highs are crisp and non-fatiguing. I listen to a lot of Grateful Dead and these are a great match. It's extremely detailed and it really shines on the jazz recordings with very capable sound-staging. For hip hop, It tames the thumping bass rhythms without taking anything away from the music. The Elear will be my 'go-to' headphone for many years to come. I haven't even burned them in thoroughly yet...and should only improve over time. Kudos to Focal for a great product.

Thrilled

I have been listening to these headphones for about two weeks now and I am thrilled. I have been using a pair of Denon AH-D7000 cans as well as JH Audio Jh16v2 Pros. The Focal Elears are obviously engineered quite differently and sound simply amazing. The sound stage and ambience is enormous and provides a clearly defined spatial representation of the music that is both immersive and expressive. The little details present themselves in a way that I am simply not used to hearing. You can close your eyes and imagine being on the stage or in the studio. So many little nuances...

Excellent

The Focal Elears are very comfortable hp's, first off I'd like to say these headphones are very dynamic sounding, the vocals are very much forward Wow super good treble is excellent, Bass is extremely good and tight almost as good as my LCD 3's and I mean it's very close, The mids are just about the best I've heard on hp's, Everything is well controlled instruments are separated very nicely with these hp's. The Elear really makes the music more enjoyable they are truly superb headphones. Build quality is well only the best, I'm listening to these hp's with a Woo Audio WA22 + a Nuprime Dac-10 just amazing sounding headphones very well worth the price..Enjoy

Best Headphone Ever

Really the best headphones I have listened to over the past 5 years. Everything the reviews say they are. Seems to be well balanced and the bass has a texture to it that I have not experienced in the past. Mids and highs are spectacular. Superb micro dynamics. Might be the last pair I purchase. Using with the tube headphone amp and the pairing is really nice. You will not be disappointed if you have a decent amp.

Best headphones under $1,000

You can find full reviews on Head Fi and other audio sites and forums so I'll be brief. I've had my fair share of quality headphones and listened to many others and the Focal Elear is among the best I've heard and it is the best $1000 and under headphone imo. The dynamics are some of the best I've heard and the depth of field and imaging is also fantastic. They are comfortable to wear and build quality is what you'd expect from a $1000 headphone. If you can only buy one headphone and have the money to spend these are it unless you can spend thousands on something like the Utopia. I like them so much I'm going to sell most if not all of my other headphones and that's something I never thought I'd ever do.
