I have a pair of Focal Spirit Professional headphones. I would compare them to Sennheiser HD600 for sound quality. But they are not comfortable and have very small ear cups.

Professional headphones are designed for isolating sound. They don't want you to get disturbed, as well as sound leaking out of the ear cup and got picked up by mics. So small ear cups and high pressure against ear are very common.

I have thoose to. Good sound, horrible quality. I woulld not recommend Focal to anyone. Support is bad too. Stay away.
Can one of the massdropeprs comment on what the warranty is? I don't see anything on the description page.
I used to really love this headphone. But...
Warning. Those with big noggins need not apply. My cracked and soon to completely break headband has spoken.

Fyi, listened to the new Focal Listen at CanJam NYC last weekend. It's a worthy successor to the Spirit One in every way. I will be buying one.
In for one at the lowest price.
Stay away. Far, far away. Look up a couple reviews on youtube and you'll understand why.
Are these better than theAudio Technica ath m50x?

I don't think there is such a thing as "universal smartphone operation" for three-button cord controls. The center button (play/pause/answer call/end call) may work on all phones, but the volume/track controls will either work on iPhone or Android, but not both. At least that has been my experience is spending a LONG time looking for an Android friendly 3 button remote headphones.
Be advised: Focal headphones are prone to breaking at the hinge. The hinge consists of a ball in a sleeve and the sleeve on the outside of the ball (inside of hinge) is made of a hard plastic to hold it in place. That plastic, through repeated use of stretching the headphones to open them and put them around your head to cover your ears, will crack over time and eventually break.

I've owned two and recently viewed their line and it's engineered the same. The flaw is in the design and I don't believe that even a different plastic would fix the inherent problem.
As for sound, I love the Focals. After my second set, I decided I'm not a big enough fan because when those spider cracks start you get a weird feeling in your stomach because your money grew wings.
I'm reluctant to buy an yet closed back because most people post their initial impressions and have no long term experience with them yet.
Those that do often work in a professional environment where they don't have to actually pay for their headphones so they have little motivation to post how the headphone held up over time.
These are my opinions based on my experience and I am neither a professional nor an employee of any company related to the industry yet I believe when companies listen to actuall paying customers and make modifications to their product everybody wins.

I contacted Focal Customer Support by email a while ago asking about a driver quality control issue of the Spirit One mentioned by Innerfidelity review and got a response from a sales service person who said "We're very proud of the Focal Spirit One headphones and believe you will enjoy them a great deal for many years to come." Yeah right, but he never addressed my concerns.
Speaking of the hinge breaking, Pioneer HDJ 1500 had the same problem. One of the hinges broke after 9 months of casual use. Pioneer do sell the replacement part (they call it the End Tab). But it costs about $45 each plus shipping,. Really? $45 for a small piece of plastic? No thank you. I would never buy another Pioneer product.
I was very interested in the Spirit One S but after that email from their customer service and reading about the hinge problem. I guess I would stay clear of this product.
