Focal Stellia. These very high-end circum-aural headphones manufactured at Focal. A new generation of exclusive electrodynamic speaker drivers is at the heart of these headphones. They can work at low acoustic load while offering an extremely extensive frequency response (5Hz – 40kHz). Stellia delivers a perfect sound thanks to the many cutting-edge technologies which are integrated in its speaker drivers. The frameless 100% copper voice coil, ‘M’-shaped pure Beryllium dome do the job whether bass articulation or the highest frequency details. In addition, Stellia’s offers extremely low impedance at 35 Ω. Consequently, they make the headphones very easy to drive through the output of a mobile audio source. Experience the purity of sound, everywhere.
Optimal acoustics are the reason for development of each component without compromising on style. Because at Focal, innovation goes beyond technology. It influences product use and aesthetics. So, the two cognac and mocha finishes and the full-grain leather were chosen to sublimate this unique object.
Focal 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. High-resilience memory foam enhances the comfort of the earpads.
NEC PLUS ULTRA FINISHES
The two cognac and mocha finishes and the full-grain leather chosen are testament to the meticulous attention paid to each and every detail of these elegant Focal Stellia headphones.
So Focal Stellia further enhances soundproofing capacity by its closed design and thanks to the earpads. 50% of their height diffuses sound through a non-perforated full-grain leather. The other 50% absorbs the audio signal through an acoustic cloth which covers the memory foam.
EXCEPTIONAL SPEAKER DRIVERS
‘M’-shaped pure Beryllium dome, frameless 100% copper voice coil, and a new surround. These are technologies which offer exceptional dynamics for closed-back headphones. So they contribute to the reproduction of the tiniest sound details at both high and low frequencies. As a result, the respect of the original audio signal by hte Focal Stellia is unfailing. The neutrality is flawless. Resulting in voices and trebles of astonishing realism.
The Focal engineers worked to achieve the pure sound. The speaker driver’s frequency response is extended by integrated vents. An EVA foam positioned behind the speaker driver to absorb high frequencies. Acoustic diffusers break up standing waves to obtain sound reproduction that is free of interference.
These headphones require a running-in period to operate at their best. They will run themselves in naturally after several hours of listening time. If you want to speed up the process, we recommend playing very bassy music through them for at least 24 hours at a relatively high volume. This will stabilize the speaker drivers and allow you to get the very best out of your Focal Stellia headphones.
