I was waiting for something good, like a Massdrop LCD-X or something, I guess this is something good. Its out of stock at my local Focal dealer. It’s also smoother than what I remember of the HD 600 and therefore “smooth enough”. It’s significantly lighter, its headband design avoids hotspotting on the crown of my head, its oval ear pads provide enough room for my pointy ears, and after manually loosening the clamp it clamps strongly enough to feel secure on my head yet gently enough to avoid causing discomfort, even when I wear glasses. Tyl's review of the "new" (read the review - you have to put "new" in quotes) 660S is devastating.

Both of these headphones roll off a little but extend surprisingly well and remain reasonably articulate down there. The story is definitely the strongest pillar holding up ELEX. I … I listen to pretty much all kinds of music, but skew towards stuff that includes at least some acoustic instruments and unprocessed human voices. If Tyll says so it has to be true correct? It’s still no Elex, but it’s not bad. The DSD capable dac along with support for android and ios devices as source piques my interest. It’s also far more comfortable for me to wear than the Elex. The HD600s are smoother and more natural sounding especially in the midrange with acoustic instruments and vocals. Listen to your music, not to your headphones! Beyond that, while the Elex can sound very technically impressive on the right tracks at the right volume, not once did it allow me to lose myself in the music the way that I can with the HD58X. The electric guitar at the end of Second Hand News demonstrates this well–on the HD58X it has body, crunch and bite, on the Elex it’s all bite. The Focal Elears are a top contender for best headphones in their price class, while the Focal Utopias are one of the very best headphones on the planet. Male and female vocals are well balanced with each other and with the rest of the instrumentation. Of course that would mean giving up the pursuit of new headphones, which is a whole 'nother subject! Now obviously I can't demo the Focal Elex, while I can demo the T1.2 on Saturday this week. They are not in the ballpark of Audeze LCD series weight though, so that’s a blessing. following the recommendations in the MiniDSP manual, but at a lower SPL to match my typical listening level. If there’s one song that best demonstrates why I love the HD58X, it’s Stevie Ray Vaughan’s Tin Pan Alley from “Couldn’t Stand the Weather”. Will be pre-ordering it. Focal has come out with three headphones that is fabled for their unique intimate sound: Utopia ($3000 USD), Clear ($1,100 USD) and Elear ($647 USD). I’d always wanted to hear the famed Focal sound and I hoped that it would sound like my old DT 1990 without the big treble spike, so I picked up a pair. The Elex gains body by turning up the volume to 75 dBA or higher, to which the Elex responds beautifully in other ways too. Open-backed dynamic drivers often suffer from pretty severe sub-bass rolloff and dramatically increased distortion in this region. It has a neutral sound-signature that leans bright, providing additional detail and air, and retains a good deep bass that chooses quality over quantity. Some people might mistake me for musically inclined until they hear me sing, at which point they’ll realize that I have awful pitch. Since I’d like to preserve my hearing, I tend to listen at low levels (70 dBA or below). Having recently gone on a DSP binge and sold my Beyerdynamic DT 1990 because I was having so much fun with my Audeze LCD2C, I came off that binge wanting to own some headphones that don’t need any EQ or crossfeed to sound good.

It loses to the Elex on technicalities like speed and detail retrieval, and it’s less smooth, but it’s pretty darned good across the board, images exceptionally well, an… Out of interest, what problem do you have with weight?

I listen to a lot of music during the day while I work as a programmer, I occasionally do some focused critical listening for enjoyment and writing reviews like this one, and I like to listen in the evenings for relaxation. $299. Neither of these rivals my LCD2C for bass performance and if I were to sit down for a listening session dedicated to electronic music, I would stick with the LCD2C, but for the occasional deep bass track these both get the job done. BUILD. The Elex has more detail, speed, dynamics, and soundstage. Both headphones have what I would call “enough” treble, providing enough energy to cymbals and sweetness to female vocals, but never becoming sibilant or fatiguing. 11:11 and the 2nd track from The Marriage of Figaro really show off the imaging. My measurements (relative to a Harman-like target) illustrate the general similarity in their tonal balance versus something like the LCD2C. A drum hit and guitar strum that mimic a gunshot at 5:11 begin a stretch with particularly strong macrodynamics. Speaking of comfort, Focal did a terrific job with the headband on the Elear. Turn up the HD58X too much, and it starts to sound muddy and congested. Both of these headphones really nail it all around. I’ll need to spend more time with it before I come to a final conclusion, but the HD58X + LG V20 augmented by an NX4 for critical listening could be my sweet spot. And they don’t just look expensive, they feel it too. I’m still learning what “microdynamics” really means, but their rendering of the tremolo in the voices around 1:00 into Get Lucky seems like a good example of these headphones’ capabilities to portray small volume swings. What bothers me just as much is the graininess of the HD6XX treble. Whereas the HD58X always has a tiny bit of haziness to its background that reduces its resolution a bit, the Elex presents a perfectly dark background out of which its very detailed sounds seem to emerge. They offer a balance sound signature that is both wide and detailed. By continuing to use this site, you are consenting to our use of cookies.

Focal believes the M-dome allows an added degree of physical space in the earcup that allows the plane sound wave to fully develop much as it would in a loudspeaker, but in the limited space available inside the Elear’s ear cups. On The Marriage of Figaro, both headphones convey the sense of actually sitting in an opera house. The twists are unexpected and memorable. Counterintuitively, even lower toned percussion like toms seem to need some energy in the treble to sound punchy and believable, and thankfully both of these headphones deliver on that score. The … Frankly, we wouldn’t have been surprised to see a price tag twice the size on these over-ears. 11:11 doesn’t contain many parts, just a couple of guitars, some banging on the guitars and some clapping, but the recording places each one in a slightly different location across the stereo image and both headphones use the available soundstage to the fullest. In particular, I never feel the need to turn on crossfeed to narrow the stereo image. By contrast, listening with the Elex I found a lot of songs that sounded impressive from a critical listening perspective, but nothing that tickled my musical fibers like the HD58X does. I guess Elear it is. Ears validate the measurements, not the other way. 90 %.
