Focal's Listen Wireless headphone is worth listening to


The highly regarded French audio company's first stab at premium Bluetooth headphone delivers excellent sound. But is it the right sound for you?

The Focal Listen Wireless has a sturdy design, fits comfortably and snugly, and sounds excellent for a Bluetooth headphone. It folds up to fit in an included neoprene case and comes with a cable for wired listening. It also works well for making calls.

The sound is a tad bright, which can make some music sound harsh. Heavier than some competing models. Lacks active noise cancellation.

Focal's Listen Wireless is well-built Bluetooth headphone with rich, refined sound imbued with a lot of presence -- perhaps too much for some people.

Focal Listen headphone review: Audiophile sound for an affordable price


You may not have heard of French company Focal, but it makes some very good-sounding headphones. The latest case in point is its new Listen closed-back over-ear headphone, which retails for $249. No word yet on an international launch, but that price...

The Focal Listen has a sturdy design and a comfortable and snug fit, and it sounds excellent for the price. Detachable cable includes an integrated one-button remote. The headphone folds up to fit in an included neoprene case

Headphone is a tad heavy, may fit a little too snugly for some folks, and may not have enough bass for some listeners

French company Focal's closed-back, over-ear headphone is designed for mobile use and delivers excellent sound for $250.
