Focal has three new earphones that are ready for release. The Wired and Wireless Spark models utilize an in-ear design and of the trio, they’re they the most affordable. However, anyone looking for a more traditional headset may want to check out the Focal Listen Wireless model which features an over-ear design and boasts better performance.


The Spark and the Spark wireless feature a 9.5 mm driver encased in an aluminum enclosure. Both have an estimated frequency response of 20Hz to 20kHz.

As far as color choices, the wired Spark is available in Black and Silver with a sleek Cobalt shade coming in July. The Spark Wireless is currently available clad in Black and White with a Rose Gold tinted version expected to arrive in July.


If you want a more traditional headphone then the Focal Listen Wireless ear cans may be more your speed. Since they’re bigger than the diminutive Spark earphones, they have room for a bigger 40mm driver. According to Focal they have an estimated frequency response of 15Hz to 22kHz. Each ear cup is layered with memory foam to help ensure a comfortable fit.
