Good but disappointing,
This review is from: Focal Spirit One Headphones - White (Electronics)
There's no doubt that these headphones sound good and if based on sound alone I would like these headphones. However the two things I think let the focals down are firstly the build and secondly the comfort.
Regarding the build, it's not that I think these are badly built, but just that they do not feel like premium headphones. They are almost entirely plastic, not in itself bad, but they have stuck onto this plastic thin bits of metal on the adjusting band and the 'focal' badge and the bits that are plastic feel cheap. Furthermore the adjusting mechanism is loose almost to the point of feeling broken.
Despite this, the comfort is the worst thing. These are LEAST comfortable headphones I have EVER used. I appreciate comfort almost if not more than sound when it comes to premium headphones and these are just not up to par. The earcups are ridiculously small, yet too big to be comfortable as on-ears. After about half an hour I found myself with aching and clammy ears, the feeling i got after using them put me off even putting them on
Other than that these come with a really nice load of accessories but its not enough to make me keep them
FYI I sent them back
