Focal is on the high-end spectrum of headphones and would be considered by most as a audiophile company. Catered to the Hi-Fi music lover of sorts. You may recognize the name Focal if you got a chance to see or hear their Utopia Tournaire On Ear headphones that jumped onthe scene in late winter. They are priced about $120,000 with very limited quantities. Here is a picture below for a refresher:
Thankfully Focal has some interesting looking in-ear headphones that are priced well below that number. You can read up more about the Spark and Spark Wireless below and stay tuned to our review on both products.
Spark and Spark Wireless – Mobile In-Ear Headphones
As a follow-up to the successful Sphear in-ear headphones, Focal created the new Spark line to provide the mobile and connected consumer access to the exceptional Focal sound and performance at an affordable price.
A new way to listen
Spark has a dynamic and wide frequency response with a 9.5mm Mylar driver to make quality sound accessible at an affordable price. Spark opens the door to fans of dematerialized music who want to enjoy their favorite songs differently and to experience a more authentic sound, leaving no room for monotony. Spark offers the perfect sound for music from all music platforms in the modern age of streaming and downloading.
Designed in France, Spark delivers Focal’s quality sound in a stylish, lightweight and comfortable in-ear headphone. The body of the aluminum headphones and the three-button remote control with omnidirectional microphone give it an elegant look. The silicone earplugs, the soft touch, flat anti-tangle cable and the rigid carrying case make it easily accessible and practical to use. Spark’s shape and weight, only 0.03 lbs., offer comfort for long listening sessions.
Spark Wireless is the first Bluetooth® headset designed by Focal. Completing the Spark series, Spark Wireless is a high-quality ultra-nomad headphone providing music enthusiasts with comfort, quality listening and total freedom of movement. Focal has the in-ear solution for the mobile and connected audience to listen at any moment with complete freedom.
