New colorful versions of the company's wireless closed-back headphones have been revealed.
Focal has announced the upcoming launch of its Listen Wireless Chic Headphone lineup. The collection serves as a brightly colored take on the previously released Listen Wireless Headphones, offering new Olive, Purple, and Blue metallic finishes.
"When searching for colours inspiration, our intention was to follow current trends," said Focal. "The headphones now stand out through their style but still maintain Focal sound quality! Olive is one of the key podium colours. The Olive Listen Wireless Chic model will go just as well with black and white, and offers an original touch of sophistication. Purple perfectly matches with dark colours and grey. Blue remains a classic and sophisticated choice, both young and trendy. Listen Wireless Chic offers originality and combines this with a remarkable level of sound. It will accompany you anywhere you go, in style."
The Listen Wireless Chic headphones offer a closed-back design with large cushions and thermosensitive memory foam on the ear pads to enhance comfort and audio isolation. In addition, the units feature 40mm Titanium / Mylar drivers, along with wireless playback support for Bluetooth 4.1 with aptX. A dual 'Clear Voice Capture' microphone system is integrated as well to improve voice quality during phone calls. Battery life is rated for 20 hours of autonomy and 3 hours of charge.
