LIMITED EDITION - AVAILABLE WHILST STOCKS LAST

Revered speaker and headphone company Focal JM-Lab have teamed up with Shenzhen audio manufacturer Questyle Audio to present a high-end headphone and high-resolution digital audio player combo that offers a gold standard in personal listening experience.

Focal's flagship Utopia open-back reference headphonesFocal’s Utopia is a truly unique headphone product. Entirely open-back and featuring exclusive full range drivers made from Beryllium in a special M-shaped dome, the Utopia provides the equivalent of two legitimate loudspeakers sized-down for your ears. The results in use comprise a masterclass in dynamic nuance, striking realism and unrivalled clarity.

Questyle Audio meanwhile have been widely known over recent years for for their patented Current Mode Amplification, a proprietary technology that amplifies modulating current rather than voltage. The low distortion, wide bandwidth results have been well received by audiophiles, and the technology has found its way into a range of different Questyle niches including DACs, headphone amps, and of course their flagship digital audio player - the QP2R.

Perfect Partners

As a pair, the Utopia and QP2R form an ultimate personal listening machine. Questyle’s QP2R features an intuitive interface and a hefty chunk of internal storage (also expandable by MicroSD) for high resolution playback, whilst the Utopia’s unique drivers serve as the perfect canvas of clarity to reproduce your chosen musical material. Questyle have also tweaked the headphone impedance of each Utopia-bundled QP2R to further improve noise and distortion figures when used with Utopia.

Reviews

Firstly a huge thanks to Audio Sanctuary for managing to get the headphones before their official release (as I was travelling through the UK at the time). Communication was great and service top-notch.

Impressions of the headphones, whilst still early days, are very positive. They have an incredible energy that really gets the toe tapping. Detail retrieval is very good; not quite HD800 levels. They do not have the delineation, air and separation of the 800's but they have a full, meaty solidity that is more palpable and realistic. They have quite an intimate presentation, attributed to the smaller and more compact soundstage. Only in comparison to the HD800 may it come across slightly "congested" but only in comparison - these are more open than almost all other dynamic headphones.

Bass weight and accuracy is one of the key features of the Elear. Together with the upper range dynamics, music has a visceral feel that I have not experienced before. Mids and hights are aticulate and smooth. Again, only in comparison to the 800's do they sound a little subdued (e.g., vocals not quite as clear). Having said that, for a lot of music, the Elears are more suitable.

Looking forward to hearing what these do after some burn-in; during which the midrange and soundstage should open up a little. Over and above the sound itself, one positive to mention is the incredible build quality - from the presentation box with magnetic covers through to the cable, headband and pads. They are heavy, but comfortable due to the well-padded head band and even distribution. The cable is rock-solid and at about 4m is a breath of fresh air from short and poor quality stock cables that many headphones come with.

A big thanks once again to Phil for the awesome service and product.
