Focal Elegia headphone review: Rich, luxurious sound and impeccable design


Focal's first closed-back headphone for audiophiles is a winner.

Gorgeous styling and build quality ; Rich, lush, musical presentation regardless of genre ; Super easy to drive with any smart device

Pricey ; Can't quite match the Focal Clear's sonic clarity

Focal’s continued foray in high end headphones hits another high note with the Elegia. Its design will turn heads while offering snug comfort on your head. The lofty $899 asking price delivers an equally lofty and rich musical experience. This is a...

Focal Elegia review: My first true Hi-Fi experience was amazing


I've tested a lot of headphones at Techaeris but the Focal Elegia were my first true Hi-Fi headphone experience and they are amazing.

Easily the most comfortable pair of over-ear headphones I've used ; Amazing looking design ; Premium materials and stellar build-quality ; Amazing Hi-Fi sound made even better with a DAQ

Pricey and probably out of reach of most consumers

Hands on: Focal Elegia review


French audio company Focal is well-known for its luxurious, over-ear headphones and speakers – and the prices that kind of luxury entails.  Even their so-called entry-level headphones, the Focal Elegia, will cost you a pretty penny –...

Impressively wide soundstage Comfortable Luxurious feel

Very expensive despite being ‘entry-level’

Our initial impression of the Focal Elegia headphones is very good; they sound fantastic, look great, and are comfortable to wear. However, that price tag means that only the most dedicated audiophiles will likely consider buying them.

Well Worth it


I bought these to go with an Astell & Kern SR25 and replace some Sennheiser Momentums. The difference is wonderful, hearing bits I have never heard before.

Excellent headphones


These headphones are very comfortable and fit over my ears very well. The build is good and the sound is rich and well balanced. The only quibble I have is that the cable is short and I have to use an extension when using the headphones.

Stunning sound


As I wasn't able to demo in-store, I was promised a home trial which was perfect. I will definitely be keeping them because the sound quality is superb - it is incredibly detailed without being aggressive or tiring.
