      Comments about Spirit One Closed-Back Headphones (White):

      These are great headphones for the price. I originally got them because of a very positive CNET Review. The review was accurate, the sound is very smooth from deep bass to high treble, very accurate and clear and never distorts, things sound as they should. Comfort is actual pretty good, but I have a smaller head and ears, so these don't fit quite as tight as on other heads, these are far more confortable that my SOL Republic Master Tracks or the Skullcandy Aviators I had before. Very durable, with an array of accesiories, two cables, a three button apple cable and a regular cable, that are both very thick and have a nice shealth, I can tell they will last quite a while. A hard carrying case and a nice fabric bag as well as a airline adapter and a 1/8 plug adapter. Overall the sound has burned over a week but I knows it usually takes about 100 hours or about a month if you listen for about 4 hours a day to really sound their best, so I'm only waiting for them to get better. 5/5 for value and sound, 4/5 for comfort. 5/5 durability and craftmanship.

      Comments about Spirit One Closed-Back Headphones (Black):

      I purchased these because I prefer a warm sound and by other reviews they fit the bill. The sound is excellent, warm-leaning, good bass, and they respond well to amplification.

      Unfortunately, there are two problems: Focal advertises these as fully circumaural - be warned, they are not. These are certainly supra-aural as the cans and pads are not nearly large enough to encompass an adult ear. The second problem is related, in that the clamping force is very high - if you are sensitive to pressure on the ears, you will not enjoy wearing these headphones.

      Otherwise, build quality is good, accessories are good, case is good. Appreciated is the ability to fold the 'phones flat for travel/storage.

      Comments about Spirit One Closed-Back Headphones (Black):

      Focal headphones are very well made, and do have an outstanding sound quality. However, maybe the next generation of Focal headphones will be made a bit more comfortable. While the tight fit is good for the external noise isolation, the TIGHTNESS of the headphones on the head is very fatiguing after a short while. But, everyone's head and ears are different, so you might feel otherwise. One must give these headphones a good listen. Sonically, they are flat, but highly detailed and balanced.
