The $279 Focal Spirit One is affordable for a headphone designed and engineered in France (but actually made in China). The Spirit One's ear cups are somewhat larger than the Bowers & Wilkins P5 on-ear headphones ($299), but the size advantage pays dividends with superior isolation from environmental noise. I prefer the Spirit One's sound over the P5 because it has more powerful bass, and the overall sound is more immediate and lively. With strong sound performance, cushy ear pads, and a generous two-year warranty, the Focal Spirit One deserves a solid recommendation for anyone shopping for a universal over-ear headphone. Focal's engineers put extra effort into developing a headphone that conforms to a variety of head and ear shapes, but comfort is only average. It's great that the earcups pivot on not one, but two vertical hinges and one horizontal axis to help ensure the soft, faux leather earpads apply equal pressure around your ears. The clever design improves the seal on the ears to more effectively block external noise and maximize bass.
When a renowned hi-fi brand moves into multimedia and nomadic devices, you can be sure it'll cause a stir! Focal, which has been flirting with the computing world for a few years now, is trying its hand at mobile devices with an ambitious product: the Spirit One. Focal was right not to rely on its name alone to sell the Spirit One. They obviously paid a good deal of attention to style as well. Decidedly modern, these headphones combine a matte black finish, brushed-aluminium imitation plastic and red colouring inside the earcups for a look that's sober, yet stylish and effective. The only esthetic issue we have is that the swivel joints for the earcups jut out away from your head, without adding any noticeable impact on mobility. And you'll have to watch out, because like most of the body, the mechanism is made of plastic, which isn't reassuring for the lifespan of this headphone. In fact, when you take a closer look, you can see several little areas where the finishing could be greatly improved. Even more visible, there's a good deal of play between the three sections of the headband, and it's not uncommon to get a strand of hair stuck in between these parts when putting the headphones on—so you have to be careful when taking them off.
