Celestee follows in Stellia’s footsteps as headphones that seem to defy the very laws of nature themselves in how they provide a sense of space and soundstage with a closed-back design. While it can’t match Stellia’s level of space, detail, and dynamics, Celestee creates a new standard for sonic refinement in a closed back headphone under $1000.

Following the launch of Stellia in 2019, global audio leader Focal presents Celestee. Delivering uncompromising audio quality, these headphones feature modern design and a blue finish, showcasing the French brand’s savoir-faire in audio. Focal has been present on the headphones market since 2012, developing a universally acclaimed collection of open-back and closed-back headphones.
A Brand New Navy Blue Color
Navy is the new Black! Dark blue is a versatile and timeless colour that has been increasing in popularity. By choosing Navy Blue, we are adding a sophisticated,
sumptuous feel to the headphones. The combination of this blue with copper and bronze accents is a trend influenced by interior and accessory design, and
has become popular in watchmaking and consumer electronics sectors. These shades offer a very interesting and elegant alternative to more traditional chrome and silver parts.
Focal focuses on combining sophisticated shades to create headphones with a highly original identity, unique in its market segment. The brand has chosen
Navy Blue after working with a Designer & Product Colourist. It is the first time this blue has made an appearance in the Focal collection, and it blends harmoniously with the Soft Copper finish.
Unique Focal Savoir-Faire
For over 40 years, Focal has been characterised by French innovation and manufacturing. The engineers have taken inspiration from their developments with
the Elegia headphones and introduced acoustic treatment inside the Celestee earcups. The sound is precise, balanced and boasts beautiful depth in
the bass. This exclusive technology is enhanced by the French savoir-faire of Focal: once the five manufacturing stages involved in the speaker
drivers are complete, they are tested and measured, and then kitted out by dedicated teams to provide uncompromising audio quality.
Fine Materials and Comfort
Celestee incorporates a combination of fine materials. Once again, attention is paid to every detail, including the accessories with the thermoformed woven carrying case in colours to match the headphones. The clean
lines of the aluminium yoke create controlled geometry to mould perfectly to the head while providing optimal grip. The choice of a semi-aniline leather and microfibre headband, as well as leather earpads, provides added
comfort while offering excellent soundproofing, whether you use Celestee at home or on the go.

So before owning the focal Celestee. I had a pair of Sennheiser hd820,and the sound stage was there but I felt something was missing. Now, having received the focal Celestee and had time to enjoy them. I came to a conclusion that these are my headphones. The Focal Celestee just destroys the Sennheiser HD820 in sound and price. Iv been in the market for a pair of really nice sounding closed back heaphones around $1-1.5k and these are the ones. Now, I own a pair of sennheiser hd800s so I know a wide sound stage and one thing I will say is that the Focal doesn't do well is soundstage. It has a narrow soundstage, but it makes up with really high details and just fuller sounds. The noise cancellation is there and when the music is playing you can't hear a thing around you. I would recommend these for anyone who is looking for some high end closed back heaphones that won't completely break the piggy bank. I would also like to say thank you to bloom audio for having such amazing customer service and really fast shipping. Thank you guys for the sweet treat that came with my order. You guys are awesome and I will continue to purchase my audio equipment here from now on. Thanks again!!
