Fantastic sound, comfort issues.
on 28 May 2014
As earlier reviewers have mentioned, the sound quality is fantastic - neutral (in a good way), wide soundstage, excellent separation.
However, the ear cups are not big enough for slightly above average sized ears. They are not truly 'circumaural' and the pads tend to rub my ears. The calliper pressure is also very high out of the box, though this reduces with time.
Focal need to consider either thinning the ear-cups, increasing the size/ dimensions somewhat, or giving users the option by making XL ear-pads, as V-moda did with theirs.
Could have been fantastic, Focal just need to sort the comfort out.
