Studio-quality headphones from Focal

Sound is incredible and very comfortable to wear - very pleased with this purchase

one of a kind

Sweetwater is the best company I have ever dealt with, and I don't just mean music companies, I mean any company, ever. Their customer service and integrity are second to none. Nick LaMendola is the best, most knowledgeable sales rep ever. After discovering Nick and Sweetwater, I simply quit dealing with anyone else. I cannot pile on enough praise.

Great Presence

These are amazing. It is almost unreal!! After using Sennheiser 280 Pro's for years, I did not expect how much better a headphone could sound. I'm listening to some old Fred McDowell recordings, and I can't believe how good they sound; I can hear the mix with a clarity that an earlier reviewer probably describes as "objective". That is exactly what I want. The articulation of every sound is distinctly present. I don't know how else to describe it. I am blown away.

Focal Spirit headphones

Sweetwater is just the best! I called Ryan Wiltermood for a recommendation for "exact replication" headphones for mixing. Once again, his advice was dead-on and the price and delivery time were great. For all engineers and advocates of great sound; ch Eckert these out!

Worth triple the price.

What you hear in these is what you will hear everywhere. The bass is a bit shy at first, but after you get used to them everything in these headphones is spot on for translation. It's unbelievable. If you had let me unknowingly use these for a week and then asked me what I thought the MSRP was based on the quality and company name, I'd have easily said around $1000. EASILY. Listening to pro mixes in these is another bonus as the overall clarity is such that you can actually spot errors and learn techniques to get the sound you're trying to achieve. The cups are a tad smaller, but they fit well enough to wear for hours (for me) and I haven't noticed any ear fatigue. A standout product for Focal and the new standard and bellwether for headphone monitoring.

Sweetwater Advice

Carson McClain

The Focal Spirit Professional headphones are lightweight and sound as good as you would expect a set of Focal speakers to sound! I've A/B'ed them against most of the major brands in the same price range and they are the most accurate for mixing. Amazing sound at a great price!

Scott Augustyniak

The Focal Spirit Pros have really changed the way I feel about mixing with headphones. I can trust my mixes will translate using the Spirit Pros and love the comfort of the memory foam ear cups. These offer the perfect balance of highs, mids, and lows and don't fatigue my ears as quickly as other high-end cans I own.
