What is it?
With Elear, Clear and Utopia, Focal made a grand, and not unnoticed, entrance into the high-end openback headphones market. But that was only the beginning of the story… Integrating speaker drivers into closed-back headphones, without making any concessions on the reproduction of the lowest frequencies: that is the new chapter in the Focal story that the engineers have just finished writing by creating Elegia. Focal invites audiophiles to make a date with absolute sound whenever and wherever they want, to dive into an intimate sound bubble, without worrying that a noisy environment is going to interfere with this moment of pure pleasure.
Elegia is an audiophile circum-aural closed-back pair of headphones from Focal. The ergonomic design makes them incredibly comfortable and offers excellent sound isolation, making these headphones the ideal solution for long listening sessions. Continuing its headphone development programme, the Focal R&D team has introduced several new innovations, all with incredible audio performance in mind. The full-range ‘M’-shape aluminium/magnesium dome speaker driver provides a very high frequency response, which is the basis for Elegia’s supremely dynamic sound. In addition, the frameless voice coil, which is lightweight yet incredibly stiff, reproduces the minutest details that adds to the convincing all-round performance. With its incredible tonal balance combined with long-term comfort, the Elegia is a key reference in the high-end closed-back headphones sector.
How does it work?
COMFORT AND ELEGANCE: With its well-mastered geometry, Elegia’s headband moulds perfectly to the head, providing optimal grip for on-the-go use. The 20mm memory foam microfibre earpads as well as the yoke, which also moulds perfectly to the wearer’s face shape, are both key contributors to the headphones’ supreme comfort. They are also incredibly good-looking: noble materials such as leather, solid aluminium and microfibre finish off Elegia to a tee.
EXCLUSIVE SPEAKER DRIVERS: Elegia is equipped with a new generation of electrodynamic transducers which provide great elongation, at the heart of extremely dynamic sound, and a linear, extended frequency response of 23 kHz. The geometry of the new, half-roll NBR surround guarantees a lightweight moving part that is always under control, even at the lowest frequencies and the highest volumes. The sound reproduction is incredibly precise. And thanks to the ‘M’-shape inverted dome and its larger emissive surface, listening becomes sensational.
PERFECT SOUNDPROOFING: The closed-back Elegia headphones allow music lovers to listen to their favourite tracks in total privacy, without disturbing the person next to them, but also to experience sound fully, without the surrounding hustle and bustle hampering this moment of pleasure. No resonance, no unwanted sound signals: Elegia’s soundproofing is perfect. An achievement made possible by our engineers’ meticulous research on the vents and microfibre earpads.
