Intro Specs Performance Recommendations

Sound
The Focal Spirit One are very smooth and natural sounding, in fact, they are the most neutral closed-back phones I've heard.
The Focal Spirit One are very accurate, but as a closed headphone not necessarily that transparent. If you're trying to recreate the sound of the concert hall, it's as if there's a very thin layer of paper between you and the live sound. That's OK; it takes a $3,000 electrostatic headphone to make this go away; the $2,000 Audeze LCD-3 isn't much different here either.

The Spirit One have a very similar tonal balance to the Stax SR-007 Omega II, but little of the transparency.


The Sprit One add some extra warmth around 300 ~ 500 Hz.

The sound is pleasant and ungrating, but not as immediate as Stax. It is very pleasant, but you're not there. It's never harsh; everything is always listenable.

Auditioned with the reference Benchmark DAC1 HDR, the Spirit One are warm and smooth, with very slightly boosted, but mostly neutral deep bass.

With the Woo Audio WA6-SE, these Spirit One are even smoother, with slightly less deep bass. The Woo has a 15 Ω output source impedance and makes these sound glorious.

The added brightness of the Apogee Duet 2's headphone output (about +1 dB at 16 kHz) sounds wonderful, since these Spirit One are neutral to recessed in the highs. The Duet 2's 34.3 Ω output source impedance adds a little bit of bass boost.

Driven from the 55Ω source impedance of the Sony SCD-XA777ES' headphone outputs, there is a little more deep-bass boost, similar to, but not quite as strong, as the ATH-M50 or Ultrasone Edition 8.

Isolation

The Spirit One offer a little more isolation from outside noise than the Ultrasone Edition 8, and even more isolation than the ATH-M50.

Leakage
The Spirit One leak more sound to the outside world than most closed headphones; this probably helps add to their open sound.

Bass
The Focal Sprit one have relatively accurate bass with little emphasis, so they'll sound thinner than the Edition 8 or ATH-M50. They are fuller than the DT880.

They have a small bump at about 50 Hz, and great deep bass, even if not boosted as euphonically as does the ATH-M50 or MDR-V6.

Presence
Thank goodness, the Focal Sprit One have no midrange presence boost.
Since they have no presence boost, they are very forgiving of noise in the recording.
Movies
For enjoying movies on your iPad, the Spirit One are smooth and deep, and the sound does a reasonable job of getting out of your head.
Gain is usually optimum around 1/2 on my iPad.

Sensitivity
The Spirit One are super-sensitive, able to play very loud very easily on any portable device, be it a DSLR, iPod, cheap portable CD player (Sony D-E406CK) or camcorder.

On an iPod, I play my Spirit One at about only 1/2 to 3/4 volume for popular music or movies, and not much higher for classical. With my 600Ω Beyer DT880, I usually need to have my iPod set to the maximum.

Forget moving the jumper on the Benchmark DAC1 HDR, it has more than enough gain as-shipped.

Materials and Mechanics
It's all plastic, except for some of the aluminum-colored bits and whatever springs are inside the harps.
There is no exposed wiring to each earpiece as with the Sony MDR-7506; the Spirit One hides the wires.

Ergonomics
The cloth-covered cable is the ideal length: 4 feet or 1.2 meters. I'd rather the remote control would be closer to the plug than up by my ears.
If you get the cord caught on something, it will unplug from the headphones so nothing breaks.
I find the ear cups a little bit on the small side, so sometimes I need to wiggle them a little to get them off my ears. The earcups seal well, although they're not the most comfortable on my ears. I put harp further back on my head. The earcups pivot well.
The remote play control will start iTunes from sleep, even if you were last watching video.
The outsides of the earcups are made of smooth-feeling plastic.
If you get a fresh set, they smell funny for a few days.
The carry bag is ill fitting, no big deal, I never use it. I just throw these in my bag with my iPad.
Higher pressure on the cups means better sealing.
The headband keeps retracting so I keep having to pull down the earcups.

Remote Control
The remote is round, so it's not that easy to figure out which way is the front. Instead, it has a sharp tit on the play button for which you have to feel. Therefore, it's a two step process to find the tit and then the volume up/down controls.
To change the volume, it demands multiple clicks for up and down; you can't just hold it down to go up and down.
