The Focal Utopia has long been recognized as one of the greatest headphones of all time, with incredible detail, resolution, and imaging and a tuning that’s on the incisive side of neutral. After creating a standard bearer for flagship headphones you might say, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” But Focal said, “how can we take this to the next level?” And so the Utopia 2022 was created.

The winner of best headphones in the world several times over, Utopia has become a market leader in high-end headphones. In 2020, Focal introduced new packaging, including several accessories (two cables and a carrying case) to give our customers an improved unboxing experience. Today, we are proud to introduce the new 2022 Utopia: an evolution in acoustics, design, and aesthetics.
Utopia still harbors its ‘M’-shaped dome, pure Beryllium speaker drivers for transparent and true sound reproduction. However, Focal has developed a brand-new voice coil that brings together reliability and lightness to the speaker driver.
Some customers have unfortunately encountered issues with speaker drivers in their original Utopia headphones, so Focal has worked tirelessly to resolve this. The new voice coil is made of 30% copper and 70% aluminum making the driver extremely reliable whilst maintaining excellent performance.
Pushing the limits even further, Focal improved linearity and reproduction of the treble by incorporating the ‘M’-shaped speaker driver grille (developed for Clear Mg), following the curve of the dome. With the new Utopia, you get unequalled sound performance with vastly improved reliability!
Combining comfort and aesthetics, the design and concept behind Utopia certainly live up to these exceptional headphones. The forged carbon yokes, made from recycled carbon, are modern and sophisticated in style, whilst providing more lightness. The honeycomb grille, synonymous with Focal's open-back headphones, and the Black Chrome ring showcase subtle design details, like the Yin & Yang on the outer case and the black and red double grille on the speaker driver.
So many aesthetic features that fiercely embody Utopia: the perfect balance between technology and design!
With the new Utopia headphones, we are delighted to introduce new design codes, which will also be used on Focal's future Utopia products.
Their full-range, Beryllium, ‘M’-shaped speaker drivers are fully open-back and run with no passive or active correction, from 5Hz to over 50kHz! The listening experience they deliver is strikingly real, precise, and dynamic, with a soundstage that is both wide and deep: close your eyes and feel the musicians beside you. Combining comfort and aesthetics, Utopia delivers uncompromising design and conception. The forged, recycled carbon yokes are modern and sophisticated in style, whilst providing more lightness. The honeycomb grille and Black Chrome ring showcase subtle design details, like the Yin & Yang on the outer case, the black and red double grille on the speaker driver, and more. So many elements that fiercely embody Utopia: the perfect balance between technology and design!
The headphones continue to be delivered in leather-effect packaging along with a carrying case. One 5' mini-jack cable with 1/4” (6.35mm) adapter and a 10' cable with XLR connector are included and dressed with an attractive genuine leather tie.
