First high-end closed-back headphones by Focal
In these high-end circum-aural closed-back headphones, Focal have combined the best of their skillfully created technologies, developed and assembled their workshops in France. Elegia incorporates a new generation of exclusive full-range speaker drivers capable of operating in a small inner environment whilst ensuring exceptional dynamics and the most precise sound reproduction. Whether it’s the motor, the frameless copper voice coil, the dedicated 110 micron surround or the “M”-shape inverted dome, Elegia’s speaker drivers are a mass of innovation dedicated to sound purity. When connected to portable audio players, these headphones are incredibly high-performing. The naturalness and realism of the sound is striking from the first few seconds of listening.
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. Thanks to the “M”-shape inverted dome and its larger emissive surface, listening becomes sensational.
Loading a speaker driver into a “small room” makes it extremely sensitive to its environment. Our engineers’ 40 years of expertise and know-how led to specific work being undertaken on the vents, so as not to limit the frequency response in the low-range and thus properly manage the air flow. With Elegia, there is no resonance to disturb the listening experience and the closed earpads round off the remarkable soundproofing.
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 incredibly good looking and made from noble materials such as leather and solid aluminium with a microfibre finish.
