Focal Utopia Reference High-Fidelity Headphones

Utopia are high-end audiophile open-back circum-aural headphones manufactured in France by Focal after 35 years of research, innovation, and development. The elegant, clean, and sophisticated design is paired with exclusive technology for pure sound, realism, and dynamics.



Experience the Power of Luxury Loudspeakers as It Rests on Your Ears… 
Focal has harnessed the power of top-of-the-line, high-end loudspeakers into their Utopia headphones. As leaders in audio innovation, Focal has been at the head of the audio industry advancing sonic technology since 1979. They have been recognized as a leader in audio engineering, and now they bring the culmination of expansive knowledge into personal audio with Utopia. 

Focal Utopia headphones are literally one-of-a-kind. High end speaker companies have been using rare beryllium drivers in their audiophile speaker ranges for years, but Utopia carries the first 40mm beryllium driver ever to be installed in a pair of headphones. Beryllium’s ability to deliver higher frequency output and lower distortion gives it a much-needed application in headphones. 

With these exclusive, proprietary Beryllium drivers, Utopia brings you closer to your music than ever before. Their open-back construction opens the soundstage, putting you right in the room with the artist. From the roaring crowd on your favorite live album to the whispers of your favorite acapella singer, hear every dynamic pulse in the music as you have never experienced it before. 

Critics are raving about Utopia headphones, and rightfully so. Inner Fidelity’s Tyll Hertsens outright declared them, “World’s Best Headphone,” in his article of the same name. He goes on to say, “I can't stress enough how astonishingly impressive I find the new Focal Utopia and Elear headphones.” C-Net’s Steve Guttenberg also raved about the Utopia, stating, “Utopia's impeccable build quality exceeds most of the world's top headphones.” 

Immerse yourself in your music like you never have before. Focal Utopia is here to stay as one of the greatest headphones in the world.
