Focal Spirit One

12 Reasons why Focal Spirit One is better

than the average

1.Measurably lower low-frequency
6Hzvs 38Hz (the average)
vs 1Hz (best: Sony MH1CBLK)
The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
2.Significantly lower impedance
32Ohmsvs 42Ohms (the average)
vs 4Ohms (best: Flips Solo 2 Social)
Impedance is the device’s electrical resistance to the current being pushed through it. The lower the impedance, the easier it is to get higher volume and requires less power.
3.Has sound isolation / passive noise reduction
Yesvs No (51% don't have it)
The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
4.Has a tangle free cable
Yesvs No (73% don't have it)
The cable is designed to minimize tangling.
5.Has a detachable cable
Yesvs No (64% don't have it)
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
6.Has an in-line control panel
Yesvs No (56% don't have it)
There is a control panel on the cable, so you can easily operate the device without having to interact with it.
7.Sizably bigger driver unit
40mmvs 34mm (the average)
vs 100mm (best: Audeze EL-8 Titanium)
The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device. Bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.
8.Is used as a headset
Yesvs No (67% don't have it)
A headset is one headphone or pair with a built-in microphone. Headsets can be used for applications which require communication i.e. Skype, games with voice chat, mobile phones etc.
9.Has an over-the-ear form
Yesvs No (58% don't have it)
Comfortable full-size form with earcups that fully enclose your ears. This model is loved for its increased sound isolation and the fact that it won't leak sound to your neighbors. It offers potential for maximum bass and loudness levels.
10.Plenty more microphone(s)
1vs 1 (the average)
vs 8 (best: Parrot Zik Sport)
More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
11.Has a behind the neck soft form
Yesvs No (92% don't have it)
This device has a soft headband that goes around the back of the neck. It won't mess your hair and allows wearing a hat or helmet. It's comfortable and doesn't press on your neck.
12.Vastly bigger diaphragm
40mmvs 32mm (the average)
vs 85mm (best: Oppo PM-1)
The diaphragm moves air back and forth to create sound. The bigger the diaphragm, the more bass it can produce.
