What is it?
Listen are Premium mobile headphones and like all of Focal’s other headphones, they are designed in France and combine all the advantages of Premium mobile headphones, for intense listening sessions. They provide excellent noise isolation with large ear cushions that ensure Listen headphones preserve all their acoustic qualities, even in loud environments. The heat-sensitive, very high density memory foam offers impressive comfort for the listener. Listen also benefits from all the research that went into designing Utopia and Elear headphones with the aim of keeping the shape of the headband constant, regardless of the size of the user’s head. This has resulted in remarkable comfort, even during long listening sessions.
When designing Listen, particular attention went into ensuring their ability to withstand the great physical demands one has of portable headphones. What’s more, the compactness of the headphones when folded away makes them an ideal travel companion.
Listen are supplied with a flexible carrying case and an aircraft adapter. A 41/2 ft (1.4m) cable is also provided with a 3.5mm jack and a bayonet connector locking device, where a quarter-turn holds the cable in place to ensure it stays connected to the headphones, however demanding the environment. The in-line omnidirectional microphone offers excellent sound pickup, even in loud surroundings. Finally, the large remote control with just one button (compatible with all smartphones) makes it extremely simple and quick to manage calls and control your music.
In terms of speaker drivers, Focal showcases its 35 years of expertise. At the source of Listen’s acoustic quality is the innovative 11/2″ driver (40mm). A Mylar cone has been used on the entire driver, and the dome has been given a titanium coating. This ensures optimal suspension compliance and gives the dome a lot more rigidity. Thus, Listen also has an excellent dynamic range, tight bass and remarkable tonal balance.
How does it work?
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. At the core of its acoustic quality is the innovative large driver (137⁄64” – 40mm) made of Mylar and Titanium. 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.
