Focal Listen Headphone


LISTEN are a Premium pair of headphones from Focal, targeted at the mobile user. The closed back design and large chrome plated ear cups provide excellent isolation from outside noise while offering high-quality acoustic performance, even on a busy city street or in a subway car.


Product Description

For optimal performance, a Mylar sheet is used on the driver, while a Titanium coating is applied to the dome only. LISTEN’s exclusive diaphragm technology creates its outstanding sound quality, while its high dynamic, deep and controlled bass, and overall tonal balance makes it unique in its class of headphones. The thick thermosensitive memory foam and soft touch headband provides optimum comfort and weight distribution. Focal’s LISTEN offer users a lightweight, comfortable pair of headphones for individuals on the go. With their noise isolating design, built-in multifunction remote and omnidirectional microphone, they are ideal for traveling, taking a conference call in private or for hours of intense listening.
