High Notes

Beryllium Driver

The geometry of the new driver profile provides a larger emissive area for energy generated by the Utopia’s driver to discharge. This means a louder speaker with a higher break-up point compared to headphones with a regular dome-shape.

Audiophile-Grade Kit

Utopia’s sound signature is deeply satisfying for critical listeners who thoroughly enjoy listening to detail-oriented music.

Great Top-end Sizzle

Utopia’s open-back design provides a full-range loudspeaker sound with a detailed sense of presentation that has the best top-end sizzle we have ever heard in a headphone (period).

Now, music lovers can experience the famous Focal loudspeaker soundstage with a headphone. Whether it's in a private office or at home, no matter where you listen, the Utopia will deck your ears out with 40 years of that luxury Focal heritage.

Features

  • True lambskin leather headband and memory foam ear cushions.
  • Engineered with 40mm pure Beryllium 'M'-shaped dome speaker drivers.

  • Two headphone cables are included: one braided balanced 10 ft. cable with 4pin XLR termination, one braided unbalanced 4 ft. headphone cable with 1/8-inch (3.5mm) connection-type, and one Jack adapter 1/8" (3.5mm) female – 1/4" (6.35mm) male
  • Utopia 2020 kit includes a lightweight rigid carrying case, leather owners' manual wallet, and packaged in an embossed gift box.

Utopia 2020 features a dynamic driver made from pure-Beryllium. Beryllium is special because of its unique strength to density ratio. The material is incredibly difficult to manufacture, and yet Focal selects the stubborn element because of the standard it continues to set when reproducing transients accurately.

The process of manufacturing the Utopia's driver required 2 years of research and development for Focal to build a machine capable of transforming a flat sheet of pure Beryllium into a dome-shape.

But, Focal one-upped itself when it designed a completely new driver profile for the Utopia 2020: the ‘M’-shaped driver. The geometry of the new driver profile provides a larger emissive area for the energy generated by the Utopia’s driver to discharge. What you get is a louder speaker driver with reduced distortion and more resolute details revealed in your music.
