Utopia headphones by Focal first hit shelves in 2016, and they’re back in 2022 with outstanding improvements. The Focal Utopia 2022 is a headphone set that embodies Focal’s more than 40 years of creating cutting-edge sound quality. They’re open-back, wired headphones designed to provide high-end, speaker-quality sound within the private, compact structure of headphones.
The most notable feature of the Utopia 2022 is its unrivaled sound quality and purity. The speaker drivers are full-range with an M-shaped dome made from beryllium, a light yet durable material used in items like smartphones, aircraft, and missiles. The drivers function flawlessly from 5Hz to 50kHz without passive or active correction. The newly developed voice coil and speaker cone at the center of the driver are made of copper and aluminum, providing optimal sound quality without adding too much weight.
Focal fans will notice the new Utopia has a unique look. The new honeycomb interior and exterior grills offer a peek at the red speaker drivers inside. Genuine leather, forged recycled carbon, aluminum, and a touch of black chrome coloring show the French sound company’s dedication to sophisticated, high-end materials.
Each set of Focal Utopia 2022 headphones comes with a black faux leather case, two high-fidelity cables, and a hard-back carrying case. They’re ready to use straight out of the box and are available now via select dealers.
