Less than three years after the launch of the Utopia open-back headphones, Focal returns to center stage with its closed-back headphones of outstanding quality - Stellia. Equipped with the brand's very best technology, incorporating numerous innovations and providing excellent soundproofing, Stellia delivers exceptional sound quality everywhere you go, without compromising on style or sophistication. Because, at Focal, innovation goes beyond technology, it influences product use and aesthetics.
Stellia integrates a new generation of exclusive speaker drivers, capable of working at low sound levels while offering an extremely extensive frequency response (5 Hz - 40 kHz). Thanks to the numerous signature Focal technologies incorporated within these speaker drivers (frameless 100% copper voice coil, M-shaped pure Beryllium dome), Stellia delivers extreme sound precision, in both bass articulation and treble details. Voice realism is quite simply astonishing.
For 40 years, Focal has been designing and developing exceptional products drawing on its expertise and passion. Constantly innovating. Our engineers worked tirelessly on Stellia to achieve the very best. Vents are integrated to extend the speaker driver's frequency response, an EVA foam positioned behind the speaker driver absorbs high frequencies, acoustic diffusers break up standing waves to obtain sound reproduction that is free of interference... Focal has also strictly overseen every stage in Stellia's creation, from the development process to industrialization, developing a specific robot to meet the requirements of manufacturing these headphones.
Stellia uses the headband and yoke mechanical features originally developed for the Utopia headphones. The consistent curve between these two elements offers flawless comfort, regardless of the shape and size of the listener's face and head. This comfort is enhanced by the high-resilience memory foam used for the elegant, high isolation full-grain leather earpads. Each Stellia component has been developed with optimal acoustics in mind, without compromising on sophistication. The two cognac and mocha finishes showcase each element and are a testament to the meticulous attention paid to each and every detail.
For high-end headphones, a high-end pack. Stellia is presented in a faux-leather case, in the same cognac and mocha colour scheme. A storage case houses two high-quality cables with the same materials and finishes. The first cable measures 101/8 feet (3 m) and is ideal for use at home on a high-end amplifier. The second is designed to be portable - measuring 33/8 feet (1.2m) with a 1/8" (3.5 mm) stereo jack, it is the perfect solution for connecting Stellia to a portable audiophile player. The rigid travel case, in cognac and mocha woven finishes, provides effective yet stylish protection for Stellia when you are on the move. Stellia will be available with an MSRP of $3000.
