Received these over the weekend, and am very happy with them. The dynamic range is very impressive. They fit me but are on the smaller side...... President Obama should not purchase these head phones. I hope they don't crack.

**EDIT: Pushing Date Out
I know these kind of comments don't really add anything useful to the discussion but I just wanted to mention how amazing these headphones sound. Had a chance to audition them at The Sound Room in Vancouver and wasn't expecting how neutral and musical they were going to be, I couldn't find any faults. I originally came in the store wanting to test out some ATH-AD900X but ended up listening to the Focals for the majority of my visit. These headphones left a great impression on me, hope to own a pair in the future.
Anyway! in my place 'The Focal Spirti Classic pricing is Massdrop double So? I joined !!
Would love to see the Focal Elear Headphones drop for $699.
Is it an Ultrasonne imitation ?
Nick1986
I don't know, but I doubt these are imitations of anything because Focal is one of the world's premier manufacturers of loudspeakers. Some of their speakers are among the best in the world (do a search for Grande Utopia!), and they even make drivers for other companies.
not a ton of info out there about these, but what reviews that are out there look pretty positive. While I was researching it on Amazon, saw a used pair there for $139, so I just bought that since it had such a great price (I don't think it comes with a box or anything. Hopefully, it's OK otherwise.). If it works at all, I'll use it in the office. Will be curious to see how this compares to my Oppo PM-3, Audeze Sine, and massdrop Fostex TH-X00.
EDIT: just received the headphones from the seller on Amazon. They were defective so if you see them again on Amazon, don't buy them. They were certainly comfortable and were over-ear on my small ears (on-ears can be annoying). Oh well, to drop or not to drop, that is the question.
I haven't had any problems with them cracking or falling apart yet. The biggest issue I see with them is fit, especially if you have bigger ears. I'm able to listen comfortably for a while, but certainly not to the same extent as something like the K7XX's.
I own the Focal Spirit One. I haven't heard these before. Anyone know how different the Classics are compared to the Spirit Ones?
I've owned and used these and they are great for tracking. They are very neutral to my ear and I think one of the best closed ear headphones in this price range.
The big minus with these is that while the hinge is strong to fit well around your head for great isolation, the plastic that the inside of the hinge is made from, gets brittle over time, starts to crack and will eventually break.
I had Sweetwater's extended warranty so they replaced them for me and I ended up selling them.

Sorry to hear that, I was lucky I had the warranty.
I wanted to post something so anyone interested knows that this model has an Achilles.
I looked at a new pair just recently and it still has the same design flaw.

Was interested in this headphone but will definitely stand away from this due to the crack, as well as the PRO model. Thanks!

So this drop did end early....good for the 15 who got in though. I was hunting for place to audition them too before committing.
I was actually tracking it and it took days to go from 15-8. Then the remaining 8 get sold in a matter of hours? Bleh.
If I had to guess, I bet the drop was limited to 15 people.
It said 2 days left and now it's gone :-(
does anybody know of the exact time massdrop deals usually end? I am seeing 2 days however am hoping to audition some spirit one professionals before committing to the deal to ensure the sizing isn't a problem.
Thank you!
Oh man.....I would love to own these, but I've read about fit issues for bigger ears+heads. If only I could audition this somewhere in the real world...
Super cheap! Better than the Sennheiser Momentums and now for a lower price too! :)
I was in the market for a new pair. All the reviews for this have really described the sound as something up my alley......feeling very buy-curious on this one.....
At the bottom of the page it says "Domestic and international orders will be shipped by Massdrop." How come I only see US shipping?
Shipping to US only? Recommended for portable use?
This headphone has received amazing reviews across the board. Intrigued.
Any assurance that the ones sent out are going to be shrink-wrapped/sealed? I've heard that several vendors of the Spirit Professionals have been sending out opened units pawned off as 'new' when in fact they should be shrink-wrapped if truly unopened/unused.

Good question, and while I certainly do not know the answer, it seems that Massdrop contracts with the manufacturers, not vendors. From the FAQ: "Our staff negotiates with the companies that manufacture the products".

Hey AB01,
Everything listed on Massdrop is new, unopened, un-fooled-with condition.
These headphones are coming direct form Focal's US branch.
EDIT: I originally posted this comment in 2014. In the last two years we've worked with a number of manufacturers to offer especially excellent prices on B-Stock items. On the rare occasion we do a drop for B-Stock products, it is explicitly stated on the drop page and often in the title of the drop. Felt it necessary to update this post given it could be interpreted as incorrect given events over the last two years.
$289.99 is a great price for these. I think i'm going to pick these up.
Heard very good stuff about these headphones and how they are comparable to Mad Dogs

i ordered the mad dogs 3 days ago and wish i saw this!
