To mark their anniversary with a unique product from their High-Fidelity Headphones range, Focal has developed the Symphonie 40th: a stunning case that houses their two best Made in France audio headphones, Utopia and Stellia, along with cutting-edge electronic solutions amplifier and DAC Arche and Questyle player QPM.

Symphonie 40th offers two sensational listening experiences: with open-back headphones Utopia and amplifier & DAC Arche, home listening quite simply enters a new dimension; with closed-back headphones Stellia and the Questyle high definition QPM player, you can enjoy your music to the absolute fullest when on-the-go.

These two flagship headphones are brimming with innovations and genuine conveyors of musical emotions. Utopia is a leading reference at Focal, incorporating the very first open-backed full-range speaker driver with a pure Beryllium ‘M’-shaped dome: the sound delivered is worthy of the very best loudspeakers! Closed-back version, Stellia integrates next-generation speaker drivers that create exceptional dynamics for a pair of closed-back headphones: the tiniest sound details are reproduced and voices are strikingly realistic.

For total user convenience and to get the absolute best out of these headphones’ respective performance, there are four dedicated cables included for the different listening options: a 4-pin Litz XLR cable to connect Utopia and Arche; a 3/16” (4.4mm) jack adapter to link Stellia and the QPM player; a mini-jack adaptor for Utopia and the player; and an XLR cable for Stellia and Arche. This way, each set of headphones can be combined with each electronic solution, especially Arche, which combines a digital-analog converter with two headphone-specific pure class A amplification modes for the purest of listening experiences.

Finally, there is an elegant carrying case available so you can take your headphones with you wherever you go in total safety.

These ultra-high-end audiophile solutions and components nestle gently within a stunningly elegant numbered case. The sophistication it exudes is worthy of the very best trunk-makers.

The outside of the Symphonie 40th case is shrouded in a Macassar ebony veneer, a noble variety of wood with a satin finish. The inside is lined with beige microfibre for a soft, distinguished look and feel. The metal clasps and side handles round off this luxury piece, that will blend seamlessly into any office, living room or anywhere you like, looking fantastic as well as providing pure listening pleasure.
