Focal Elegia Audiophile Closed-Back Headphones

This product was recommended by Petar Petrov from DiamondLobby

The Elegia by Focal is undoubtedly one of the best high-end headphones that you can buy on the market today. From a high-end closed-back and lightweight design weighing just 4 lbs to supreme audio quality, the Elegia is a worthy, multi-purpose purchase. These headphones are suitable for anyone who wants to experience incredible tonal balance at both very high and very low frequencies. The ear cushions are made out of 20mm memory foam covered with microfiber fabric, which not only makes the headset ultra-comfortable to wear but also provides for excellent ambient noise soundproofing. As far as the loudspeakers are concerned, the Elegia hosts a 1.6 (40mm) aluminum-magnesium M shape dome. This offers a higher break-up point compared to the one we will have from a regular dome. So it allows the extension of the frequency response even more in the upper part of the audio spectrum. Overall, from its supreme and timeless design to impeccable audio quality, the Elegia by Focal is worth every cent.

ULTRASONE is a luxury headphone brand, founded in 1991 and making a name for itself across the globe, with successful DJs, renowned recording studios and hi-fi enthusiasts all praising their products.

This coupled with the S-Logic Plus Technology means a spatially improved perception of voices, and instruments with stereo sound signal. In other words, amazing sound clarity to give you concert like sound on a closed back set of headphones. This technology also allows a reduction of sound pressure levels at the eardrum – up to 40% less strain which significantly reduces the risk of hearing damage. To ensure comfort for hours on continuous listening, the headphones feature an adjustable metal headband and earpads with memory foam that adjust to fit your head and minimize external noise.
