Focal utopia в авто

Что касается подачи и первого впечатления, то тут, конечно, всё безукоризненно. Матово-чёрная упаковка одним своим видом создаёт флёр дорогой вещи, из-за чего динамики хочется брать в руки как можно бережнее. Впрочем, цены в накладной как бы тоже заставляют быть собраннее.

Если новые твитеры (Focal TBM) с первого взгляда ещё похожи на предыдущее поколение (хотя внутри они совсем другие, потом сами увидите), то НЧ/СЧ динамики (Focal 6WM) выглядят совсем экстравагантно.

Диффузор имеет необычный М-образный профиль. Снизу по ребру прикреплена звуковая катушка – её диаметр составляет 80 мм. Такая сложная форма даёт редкую для динамиков конструктивную жёсткость – катушка толкает диффузор не как обычно, за вершину конуса, а заставляет его работать в прямом смысле подобно поршню. Причём практически во всём своём частотном диапазоне – изгибные моды при такой конструкции отсутствуют как класс.

Материал диффузора – сэндвич со средним слоем из вспененного полимера, его структуру хорошо видно по внешнему краю диффузора. В таких слоёных композитах Focal, пожалуй, преуспел как никакой другой производитель автомобильных динамиков.

Понятно, что при столь немаленьком диаметре катушки магнитная система имеет обращённую конструкцию, т. е. сам магнит расположен внутри катушки, а снаружи – только магнитопровод. Магнит неодимовый, в описании указан диаметр 75 мм. Намотка звуковой катушки – проводом CCAW.

Центрирующая шайба с такой катушкой получилась относительно узкой, но её внешний диаметр сделан максимально возможным. В итоге для заявленного линейного хода 5,5 мм её ширины, в принципе, вполне достаточно. Профиль прогрессивный, т. е. шаг «волн» ближе к центру и ближе к краям разный.

Верхний подвес – тоже не так прост, как можно было бы предположить. Кольцевые утолщения – средство для гашения резонансов, с ними подвес ведёт себя более корректно, а не колышется как желейная масса. Подобное решение в Focal назвали TMD (Tuned Mass Damper), и его можно встретить, кстати, и в других динамиках Focal, например, в серии K2 Power.

Твитер похож на предыдущий только на первый взгляд. Действительно, у него осталась та же вытянутая форма корпуса и тот же принцип установки – он крепится четырьмя винтами к литой металлической установочной «чашке». Разве что нежный бериллиевый обращённый купол теперь закрыт несъёмной сеточкой. Кстати, вот за это разработчикам отдельное спасибо: кто хоть раз чувствовал боль (и попадалово на приличную сумму денег) от случайно примагнитившейся биты или какого-нибудь винта – тот поймёт.

Если же рассмотреть твитер повнимательнее, то можно заметить, что плоский подвес уступил место в новом TBM более привычному, с волнообразной формой. Это призвано увеличить линейный ход излучающего элемента, чтобы твитер мог увереннее работать на более низких частотах.

Если снять чашку, открываются более существенные отличия от предшественника. Теперь Focal TBM имеет практически открытое оформление – вместо закрытой камеры с тыльной стороны имеется просто вставка акустического сопротивления из пористого материала (похож на поролон, но плотнее).

При этом в комплекте всё же идут пластиковые чашки, которые превращают акустическое оформление в более привычное закрытое. Разница получается заметной, её хорошо видно на измерениях и, главное, хорошо слышно.

Для начала снял электромеханические параметры. Совпадение с заявкой для 6WM достаточно точное, это хорошо. Что касается твитера Focal TBM, то по графикам это не слишком очевидно, но, к примеру, его резонансная частота без камеры составляет, судя по описанию… 280 Гц. Ещё раз – двести восемьдесят. Да, для твитера. До этого момента чего-то подобного в автомобильных высокочастотниках я ещё не встречал.

Первое, что сразу же привлекло внимание в параметрах 6WM – наконец хоть кто-то вспомнил классику жанра – высокую механическую добротность. И по заявке, и по измерениям она получилась порядка 10, что нынче встречается очень редко.

Как показали наблюдения за много лет измерений и работы с динамиками, излучатели с чрезвычайно вязкими подвесами (низким Qms) звучат до безобразия скучно – без драйва и хлёсткости в мидбасовом диапазоне. Динамики с высоким Qms в этом плане обычно более эмоциональны. Впрочем, полная добротность в любом случае задаётся в основном электрической составляющей Qes, и тут всё однозначно – динамики для дверной установки, и в корпусах им делать нечего.

Идём дальше. АЧХ удивила – Focal 6WM не просто может спокойно работать в двухполоске, но и даёт при этом некоторую свободу в выборе частот раздела. Играет высоко, так что мучительно настраивать раздел полос, подтягивая НЧ/СЧ звено к твитеру, тут не придётся. Да это и на слух, кстати, тоже хорошо слышно – звучание на верхнем краю СЧ диапазона достаточно лёгкое, без потери динамики.

Фаза практически не беснуется – спасибо жёсткому диффузору. Никаких признаков его «ломки» нет и в помине. На ВЧ необычная М-образная форма даёт о себе знать, но тут уж никуда не денешься – когда длины волн становятся сопоставимыми с размерами диффузора, интерференция неизбежна.

По искажениям всё в пределах нормы. С повышением частоты, пожалуй, они падают даже ниже обычного. И я подозреваю, что не в последнюю роль в этом играет короткозамкнутый виток (кольцо Фарадея) в магнитной системе – судя по кривой импеданса он здесь есть, с ростом частоты график почти не ползёт вверх.

С твитерами интереснее. С камерой и без камеры разница получается весьма существенной, и в основном – до 8-10 кГц. По крайней мере, по графикам. На слух – разница слышна во всём диапазоне их работы.

Для начала снял характеристики без камеры. Видно, что с понижением частоты амплитуда колебаний растёт. Предположу, причина тому – отсутствие механического сопротивления движению бериллиевого купола.

При этом хоть Fs и получается неприлично низкой, сильно опускать частоту ФВЧ я бы точно не стал – ниже 7 кГц искажения начинают расти и к отметке 3 кГц вплотную подходят к критическому для твитеров уровню 1%.

Попробовал на слух, и предположение только подтвердилось – ниже 6 кГц я бы точно частоту раздела не опускал. Похоже, этот вариант будет оптимальным для 3-полосного применения. Либо если есть возможность стыковать полосы в 2-полосной системе достаточно высоко по частоте, благо, 6WM это позволяют.

График фазы особых сюрпризов не преподнёс – нормальное поведение обращённого купола. Признаков «ломки» никаких. Да и откуда им взяться-то, зря что ли все эти заморочки с бериллием.

Теперь пробую другой режим работы – ставлю на твитер с тыльной стороны акустическую камеру. АЧХ с понижением частоты начинает вести себя спокойнее. Предположу, что относительно упругий небольшой объём воздушной массы сдерживает амплитуду колебаний с понижением частоты.

При этом, судя по графику искажений, твитер может работать в таком виде гораздо ниже, чем при открытом оформлении.

Когда пробовал компоненты на слух, это предположение подтвердилось – вариант с акустической камерой больше подходит для 2-полосных систем. Правда, буду откровенен – на самом верху звучание показалось всё же скучнее, уже не таким лёгким и воздушным. Хотя к структуре верхних частот по-прежнему претензий никаких, всё очень точно и правильно.

При этом опускать частоту раздела совсем уж низко я бы тоже не стал. В этом смысле новые Focal TBM хоть и лучше, чем предыдущие (те часто упрекали в характерном резонансе в районе «нижнего верха»), но физику всё равно не обманешь. Если это учесть и не наступать на эти грабли при настройке, то и прежние, и тем более новые Utopia я бы смело признал одними из лучших твитеров в автомобильном аудио.

С фазой вопросов тоже никаких, разве что перелом в районе 2 кГц нивелировался акустической камерой. Выше же 3-4 кГц график практически полностью повторил таковой для «открытого» твитера.

Если заглянуть в словари, то под словом «утопия» обычно подразумевается что-то несуществующее, несбыточное. Это во многом объясняет, почему флагман Focal носит именно такое название. Тем не менее, в нашем случае Utopia оказалась вполне реальной (хоть и недёшевой), со своими достоинствами и. хотел было сказать недостатками, но на самом деле – особенностями, которые довольно легко обойти.

Динамики действительно выдающиеся. Попробовал их в своей системе, поиграл с настройками. Лично мне понравился хлёсткий, очень ясный и динамичный характер Focal 6WM – с приятным артикулированным и эмоциональным мидбасом и абсолютно без зажатости на СЧ. Если не знать заранее, можно было бы предположить, что работает 3-полосная система с хорошими среднечастотниками. СЧ динамики Focal 3.5WM, кстати, – отдельная тема, надеюсь, удастся вернуться к ним позже.

Что же касается твитеров, то я по-прежнему считаю, что Focal Utopia – это одни из лучших высокочастотников в автомобильном аудио. Но при одном важном условии – если не отпускать их играть слишком низко. Ну а возможность менять оформление (кстати, открытое оформление твитеров до недавнего времени у Focal встречалось только в домашних ВЧ динамиках) даёт дополнительную свободу в настройке системы.

Outstanding Headphone.
Can’t put the soundquality in words.

Transparent, accurate, fast. The Focal Utopia are easily the best headphones I’ve ever owned.

An amazing all rounder
Transparency and speed all in one

It’s a briliant headphone. Absolutely lov’in it.

One of the best headphones on earth! I couldn’t believe my ears when I hear this, amazing.

Buy it now, you won’t regret.

I think this is the best headphone I have ever used before. Amazing quality of sound with all the details.

I have only had my headphones a few days, I can’t stop listening to them! I am hearing deeper into the music and feeling the emotion of the music, great headphones!

Most likely one of the most perfect headphones I have tried out so far. I was testing a view from other companies, but the combination of the Utopia with the Arche amplifier gives such an enjoyment and pure music reproduction.

The best headphone I ever tried and no regret owning a pair of these detail monster!

If anything the «rock» tracks were a tiny bit base heavy for my tastes, but that is probably the mix or it could be the high impedance amp I am currently using.
No issues for me with alleged overly narrow the sound stage or overly bright treble. What I hear is huge detail and prices reproduction of the data in the track.

My comparison options are limited to the Grado PS1000 I bought a long time ago and there simply is no comparison worthy of comment. The Utopias are just so much more delightful.

I await the opportunity to play these via my Pathos Aurium Tube Headphone Amp (with its

This is, hands down, the best headphone in the world. The best separation. The best detail retrieval. The most luxury build. JUST SIMPLY BEAUTIFUL

THE best headphones I’ve ever heard.

I have many High end Phones. With sonarworks it is the most neutral phone I have ever heared. The size of instruments and their distance is pricesley rendered. No other phone can do this.
Also each recording shows its different room size.
Many other headphones have their one footprint on all recordings.

Very good headphone, I like its sound about Utopia

Great sound, looks and feel! amazing tone balance and tone

Amazing product. Simply in love with this.

This is a new replacement headphone. The first one was DOA.

Listening to classical music, I auditioned Focal Utopia and Audeze LCD-4Z. Both are excellent, but I thought Utopias sounded more like what I hear in the concerts I attend. I especially appreciated the rendering of violins in higher tonal range.

Amazing headphones. Crystal clarity, amazing depth. My best audio equipment.

The best ever! Do the research and experience Utopia!

Hi Focal please find my review here on this YouTube video

The best headphones I have ever heard.

The best open back headphone produced. The sound and build quality cannot be matched.

The best Headphone I’ve ever had. Phenomenal resolution, wonderful tonal balance and extremely fast and revealing sound. Much better than the planars that I have, Focal Utopia has dynamics and punch, it is much more exciting than all the planars that I’ve heard. Focal Utopia has the most revealing trebles I have ever heard, and at the same time it is delicate and musical, very different from my HD800 which is less revealing and at the same time makes the music sound boring. The bass is not loud, but it is deep and defined. The mids sounds magnificent, vocals sound sublime on this headphone. The build quality is top notch and the box that the headphone comes in is beautiful. The comfort is impressive, it is not as light as the HD800 or my Hifiman Arya, but it is extremely comfortable and is more satisfying to use than both because the weight is well distributed in the head. I listen to Focal Utopia for hours and it’s a blessing to have it, Utopia makes you want to listen to music all the time, so listen to music at low volume like I do! I have the Utopia & Arche combo and I can’t recommend it more. It is spectacular and without a doubt one of the best headphones in the world. Focal Utopia can be a good economic decision because it makes you want to sell all of your other headphones :).

I was fascinated by your Utopia headphone, which was posted in Youtube with special offer limited number; surveyed necessary information in the web, finally decided to purchase together with short Lemo cable. (unusual without direct checking, but your technology and exclusive material were fairly enough to decide).
I have 2 vintage audio, non of them have headphone consent, so tried my mobile (LG G5), not perfect but much better than expected!
I have two plans with Utopia headphone;
1. Mobile(Samsung Note 10+ 5G): via HUD100(tiny DAconverter with amplifier), will post later
2. fitting 6.5mm headphone socket with speaker plug(banana jack) for integrated amp and for KT88 tube amp.

I am so pleased to enjoy my favorite music via Utopia anytime from now.

It should be very helpful if you provide more product information like specifications and maintenance.

Mind-blowing headphones with amazing details and transparency to the sound. Pair it with a good OTL tube amp and on top of that you will gain quite spacious soundstage as a bonus

Just received my Focal Utopia. Only on day one, but very impressed so far. Fit and finish are fabulous and they are clearly one of the best, most revealing headphones I’ve ever listened to. Soundstage, clarity, presence and separation are all fantastic just with the stock cable. I am anxious to see what they are like when completely broken in. Obviously very happy so far.

Perfect balance of sound. As close as I’ve got to the sound from my Naim floor standers. With the option of playing at unsociable levels as night.

Would be nice the same cable connection like the Stellia is included since this is the flagship product

Uniquely revealing and balanced headphone.

I’ve tried many different products in all the years I’ve listened to high end headphones and I’ve never found the perfect tuning you can find on Utopia while providing an extremely confortable form factor.

This is a no-compromise top of the line product with stunning design, functionality and audio performance.

Fantastic sound quality with open-back details and sound stage!

Absolutely stunning sound right out of the box. I’ve never had a more engaging listening experience than with the Utopias. Bravo!

excellent build quality, still new and running the headphones in and only time will tell how good they will be, but so far so good.

Top headphone but i miss the 4m cable version!

Mind Blowing.My Tool sounds amazing specially the song Invinciible

These Headphones are simply superb.
They are expensive but the best I have heard.
They are light, comfortable. I could wear them and listen to music all day.

Great sounding,but the accessories doesnt hold up qualitywise,from the headphones themselves.

Amazing clarity, outstanding dynamics.

The Best Sound design and joy

Best headphones in this world.

Love them! Amazing transparent sound; excellent materials and construction.

A truly superb headphone!

The Utopia is faster, crispier and more defined than anything I have previously owned. It’s like a magnifying glass on the music. Precise as a razor blade, each note starts and ends at the exact moment it should. Its timbre correctness is unmatched in the industry.

Surprisingly good headphone; I do love it despite the outrageous price.

Very detail and dynamic headphone.

I upgrade my Stax SR-007MKII to Focal Utopia
thanks a lot to Ming (M&LaMusique)

Utopia sound AMAZING, just grab your set!

Klang +++++,
Tragekomfort ++++-
Ausstattung+++—
(ein symmetrisches Kabel sollte bei dem Preis mitgeliefert werden.)

top notch headphone
easy to dirve
very pleased

I have within the past year upgraded from the Elears to the Clears and very recently to the Utopias. All three headphones are great, but the Utopias are something else. I have always used Chord DACs and continue to do so, but have now acquired the Questyle QP2R DAP as well, as part of the bundle offered by Focal. This is proving to be an excellent match with the Utopias. I still have some slight reservations about the lightweight and rather short cable supplied with the bundle, but it seems to work well enough. As for the Utopias, they are quite mind blowingly good, even before they are fully burned in and I am so glad I decided to make the very substantial investment required.

The best headphone I have ever heard! Absolutely resolving and liquid from sub-bass through to the highs. Confident and competent in every way to reproduce the input signal.

Zu diesem Hörer wurde bereits alles gesagt, was zu sagen ist.

Für mich einer der Besten der Welt.

Unbedingt mit einem vernünftigen Kopfhörerverstärker betreiben, mein Tipp wäre ein Lehmann Linear.

Best set of headphones I’ve ever heard.

The most wonderful audio product of my life.

GREAT Sound! Even seems to improve with break-in use. Well balanced and highly detailed.

Rediscovering my music collection with these. Can’t recommend anything better.

Outstanding performance from these fine pieces

The almost perfect Headphone. This is the absolute most resolving headphone I’ve ever had the privilege of owning. For my personal listening tastes it checks absolutely every box except sound stage. I’m honestly not sure there is a headphone out there I can give a 5 star review to just yet and I’ve tried most in existence but this comes darn close. An honest 4.75 stars out of 5.

Sub note: These cans absolute transform with your system and cables. So possibly I just haven’t found the perfect combo to open up the sound stage yet. Regardless of my quest for the perfect setup still not being complete. I don’t think any audiophile that can afford the utopia is going to regret adding them to there collection. Happy Listening everybody.

Overall I liked the headphones, high quality sounds. Bought the product December 2017, now (Sept 2018) left side cup is deaf.

Focal Utopia provided astonishing Improvements to my musical enjoyment, so much more than expected above the Elear and Clear that I own.

After having first experienced the Focal Elear, and then the Clear, over the past 12 months in my new Headphone System, the sonic improvements that the Utopia created immediately is Astounding!!

The Utopia Headphones the Very Best Headphones I have ever enjoyed. They created even more significant improvements in the sonic transparency of all Hi-Rez music played, particularly in the Mid and the High Ranges of every song, when compared to the Clear. The Base is very crisp, accurate and appropriate (not bloated) for the sound of each particular recording.

I can unequivocally state that there were greater, very subtle but significant sonic improvements to the soundstage, clarity, detail and musicality of each Hi-Res album played; albeit not equally for every one, which I must attribute to the initial recording parameters. And the vividness of the soundstage, coupled with added details from the recordings make this the most musically enjoyable set of headphones I have ever used.

The Focal Utopia has become indespensible for truly appreciating and enjoying the music in my Hi-Rez system; so much so that I am divesting all other headphones I own, including the Elear and Clear, and will use the Utopia exclusively for all my future listening.

Heavenly headphones! I didn’t know this was possible. Don’t think about it anymore just pull the trigger and make the purchase. Your world of sound will be very different once you own these.

A magnificent headphone, providing the quality of hearing experience I always wanted. Not so good:
— Instructions of use available in French only,
— no indication where to find the serial number,
— no explanation whether there are alternative cables with other sockets might be available.

Well worth the money- mesmerizingly good!

I am not a headphone geek. I was going to buy your Clear’s so I could listen to music and not bother my wife. The Clears are. very very good. I made the mistake of trying on a pair of your Utopia’s. I was totally «blown away» from the sound. I know there are people, looking at the forums, etc., that live and breathe headphone stuff. I did read reviews on your Utopia’s and the general conclusion was that they were the best. period. I was VERY impressed on how comfortable they are. I had tried a lot of headphones on, at the Munich audio show, and found that many headphones did not feel «just right» for my long Danish skull.
So..I bought a pair. I am VERY happy. All I now need to buy is a shorter cable and maybe a headphone amp.
Anyway. they remind me of the Marker’s Mark Whiskey ad. Taste expensive. and is! Not much impresses any more at 71 but the Utopia’s did!

Very well made. Excellent sound quality. Very happy!

The demo sounded great! I am still breaking mine in. 🙂

The Focal Utopia yields jaw-dropping sound, and I am so glad that I purchased them!

A wonderful world class set of headphones. Refined, elegant, and robust in their sound. My personal favorite.

Incredible headphone! Brings impact and detail like the best loudspeakers from Focal. Definitely recommend!

So far so good, just burning these in, love them!!

Sounds superb. Best headphone I have ever listened to.

Feels like you aren’t wearing a headphone (fit & finish is excellent). Cord is a little heavy- but it’s all top quality.

Best Headphones I have used

It’s difficult to explain how incredible these headphones are without experiencing it firsthand. After years of suffering through lesser headphones, putting on the Focal Utopias is akin to someone seeing the world without colorblindness for the first time and now that I’ve been introduced to this world of music out there, I never want to go back. The build quality is exceptional and the comfort is incredible. Every music lover owes it to themselves to try the Utopia headphones once.

These are the best headphones I ever heard! Period

Incredible sounding headphones, even hearing it right away without any break-in. Pairs very well with neutral to slightly dark tube amplifiers, as you get all of the incredible resolution and bass kick.

Best Headphone I ever heard. I’ve listened to Sennheiser (HD800, HD800S), Beyerdynamic (T1), Ultrasone (Edition-Collection), but the Focal Utopia topps them all.

The Focal Utopia headphone is the final headphone for me.
I have tried numerous transducers over the last 10 or so years, and nothing comes close to being a master of all genres like the Utopia does.

Pricey but well worth it.

The best Headphones I have ever heard!

Overwhelming experience of reality in music listening. Since the 12th of December 2017 when my Focal Utopia were delivered a new page in my life has turned. I now enjoy recorded music on a totally different level. My old mate the Sennheiser HD800 has started its shelf life and my new life companion Utopia takes me to a paradise of listening experiences. Thankyou!

Simply the best headphones I ever heard!!

After Sennheiser, AKG and Stax definitely the best headphones I ever heard!
The Highs could have been a bit more open, but details and resolution are outstanding.

Superb clarity and detail. Very lifelike. The only quibble I have is that the sound seems to form almost a straight line in your head, as opposed to sounding like it’s coming from all around you.

First time in a long while an audio product has lived up to it’s hype; very impressive.

Outstanding sound! Crystal clear highs with extreme detail without any harshness at all. Coming from the Sennheiser HD800, the Focal Utopia is not only easier to drive, but just has a natural sound without any loss of detail.

Beautiful design, the sound out of the box is fantastic and I expect it will get better with more playing time, fit and finish par excellence.

I have listened to the headphones, and they are truly outstanding. Thank you.

I have the Elear for about a year and I bought the Utopia a week ago. It exceeds my expectations. I frequently go to live classical and jazz events in NYC. Every other headphone I had tried except the electrostats was such a big compromise that turned me away from listening classical from headphones. I could listen jazz or other genres but not classical. Utopia is the exception. Its neutrality, transparency, speed, and precision provide an experience that is simply on a different level.

Utopia Headphone is one of the best tools for audio engineers in its category

Utopia has changed the way I listen to sounds in that with my ears I am now able to feel the upper range of high frequencies when I am mixing in my music studio.
I am also capable of tweaking frequencies in the lower range of the audio spectrum with confidence than before. Utopia headphones widely extend the frequency spectrum of any sound from the sub-bass which is below 60 Hz to the top called air around 20Khz plus.
Since my Utopia headphones arrived, my AKG K812 headphones have become a second class tool even if they are very good in capturing the lows, the mid and high frequencies with almost a flat frequency response.
However, what makes me admire more the Utopia headphones is the fact that their frequency response is so flat in a such way that I love my mixes now than before as everyone else. Whatever I add to a sound translates beautifully through the entire chain of my audio system.

Indeed, I consider the Utopia headphones as one of the best tools for audio engineers. Nothing else comes close to this magnificent piece of the technology built by Focal team.

I bought these Headphones after my HifiMan HE1000. These are more engaging, more resolving and more speaker-like. Highly recommended.

Focal Utopia Headphones

The Focal Utopia is well balanced and terrifically clean sounding. A headphone for people who enjoy spending as much time as they can listening to music that actually sounds musical.

Focal has captured the spirit of sound with its new flagship headphone aplty named Utopia. These headphones are the most accurate, well balanced and well made cans I have ever owned. They sound fantastic on any source, daps, amps or dacs you connect it to. The hype is real as it truly brought out the very best from my songs I play it with. The highs and mids are just phenomenal, buttery smooth and the lows extends well and are so well controlled. Compared to other high end cans, the Utopia has overtaken them by miles. My only gripe is i hope they included a 4 pin balanced xlr cable. For 4K USD, the Utopia may seem over priced, but you actually get a headphone that will stand through the test of time and will become part of headphone’s history as being one of the best headpones ever made.

High build quality, great sound, punchy and extremely dynamic. Unfortunately, there are no included accessories such as adapters, balanced XLR cable and case.

The best headphone I have heard, the clairity is amazing.

Now I can really hear where the strengths and weaknesses of my stock HD800 are versus the Utopia.

The Utopias are the least «shout-y» sounding phones of any I’ve heard. When late 19th and early 20th century classical scores with full sized modern orchestras call for loud crescendos the Utopia maintains composure better than anything else I’ve auditioned. Highs are bright and have bite but still, they never irritate like HD800 does on certain recordings. The HD800 gets frazzled (a combination of the 6Khz peak and some ear pad chamber resonance perhaps?). But then every other HP I’ve listened to gets frazzled as well at some point. Dynamic range seems better than anything else I’ve auditioned, the difference between the softest and loudest sounds is very wide. The Utopias seem to be coasting when some other phones are sounding stressed.

Listening to the natural brassy edge on horns and high notes from sopranos allowed me to zero in on a strength of Utopia’s. Even with complex scoring at louder levels, soprano voices in their upper registers are cleaner, sweeter sounding than with HD800. Vocal groups (say 6 to 12 singers) sound like a collection of several individuals instead of one large voice (hard to describe). Horns have a realistic sounding brassy edge on Utopia without some irritating glare-y sound I sometimes hear with HD800 at high levels.
Attacks and decays on Utopia seem a bit quicker sounding than HD800 and allow me to listen into the music better and ferret out some subtle details (on very familiar music) unheard by me until now. Or, is it the lack of spurious resonances in Utopia that provides a level of clarity over the stock HD800 and that lets me hear more of those subtler details?

I find both HP’s provide an equally wide sound stage, after all the comments I read about a narrow sound stage I found them very similar? HD800, however, are much better at recreating an illusion of depth, as much as any headphone can, all headphones are poor at that as far as any I’ve auditioned over the past year are concerned. Utopia is quite up front and flat. This is Utopias biggest weakness, maybe it will improve with time and use. (I note here that after 7+ months almost daily use last year with stock HD800 the highs got smoother and the bass more full and satisfying so adequate break-in can change a lot of the sound characteristics – but, as always, the recording quality is a huge part of that equation. Complementary coloration’s in the cables I’m using may also have helped the HD800).

The HD800 presents a sound that is translucent, airy. It can convey a sense of the hall and fool the ear that a sound field with real depth revealing aspects is being presented.

The Utopia is more opaque. However, the tonal characteristics of instruments are very realistic with a presence and dynamic capability at extremes of the frequency range the HD800 doesn’t have.

Surprisingly, the weight and control of the bass and mid-bass (on my 7 + months broken in HD800) is more to my liking at this point and sounds more impactful and tighter. This would seem contrary to most of what I’ve read of others impressions in comparing the 2, but perhaps this will change with break-in. I’m not saying the bass is more accurate, just more to my personal liking on my HD800 at present. I’m still using the stock cables at this point with Utopia and DanaCable Lazuli with HD800. A case of complimentary equipment coloration’s giving my ears the sound I’m looking for? Maybe. High frequencies with Utopia are much smoother, sweeter, and never sound strained or glare-y and that’s right out of the box with stock cables. Midrange on both, well, I like both in that range.

The other phones I own as well as those I’ve in home auditioned in home for at least a week over the past year include: PM-1’s, HD600, HD800S, E/A Dharma, Abyss 1266, HE1000, and several LCD models at dealers. Turns out I prefer dynamic to planar drivers in a headphone. None of the foregoing bests the Utopia overall.

So for now this is it, Utopia and HD800 are my phones of choice and I will keep both. They give me what I’m looking for sound wise but in slightly different ways and with some different strengths and weaknesses. The performance of both encourages me to want to listen to my music.

My Equipment : CD Transport AES/EBU to Schiit Yggdrasil DAC to Schiit Molnir2 or Ragnarok or Jotunheim, and Oppo HA-1 headphone amplifiers. IC’s and HP are DanaCable Sapphire Reference.

Note: the dealer gave me 10 days in-home to demo the store’s Utopia unit which is only a month old and may not be fully broken in. My purchased unit is new out of the box and will require some time to break-in. With dynamic drivers in particular I think the surrounds need time to settle in.
