Stellia headhone is the adaptation of the Utopia headphones to create a closed-back version.
Unfortunately, acoustic laws dictate that a transducer's design depends very heavily on the associated load
type and inner volume of the headphones. Stellia therefore integrates a new generation of exclusive electrodynamic speaker drivers, capable of working at low acoustic load while offering an extremely extensive frequency response (5Hz - 40kHz).
The new 110-micron NBR surround offers low compliance and a geometry that is developed entirely in
relation to its inner volume. The elongation of the moving part is thereby preserved and ensures exceptional dynamics for closed-back headphones.
Simultaneously, the frameless 100% copper voice coil (exclusive to Focal) offers an extremely reduced mass which, combined with its magnetic coupling to the motor, is able to reproduce the tiniest nuances with
great precision, whether bass articulation or the highest frequency details.
The crowning glory of these exceptional speaker drivers is the 'M'-shaped pure Beryllium dome. Focal's signature innovation, this cutting-edge technology offers three major benefits. Its very low mass (seven times lighter than titanium of identical rigidity) enables an extraordinary acceleration factor to be obtained, ensuring unfailing adherence to the original audio signal. Its rigidity ensures both impressive elongation and a high sound level, while preventing distortion of the dome. Finally, the damping level provided by the Beryllium lends it a flawless neutrality, for voices and trebles of astonishing realism...
THE PUREST SOUND
Loading a speaker driver into an small inner volume makes it highly sensitive to its environment. The Stellia's full-range speaker driver therefore includes a vent to control the balance between the bass and the midrange.
A second vent, located at the back of the ear cup, picks up the rear wave coming from the centre of the motor to avoid any compression and extend the frequency response of the speaker driver. How By ensu-
ring the connection between the centre of the motor and the outer part of the ear cup located beneath the logo. The speaker driver's response in the bass-reflex acoustic loudspeaker is thus extended to the
lowest frequencies while providing remarkable linearity and bass articulation, all without any dynamic
As for the higher frequencies, these are absorbed through an EVA foam pad inside the earcup, behind the speaker driver. Finally, the presence of acoustic diffusers inside this ear cup achieves two objectives: they break up standing waves by uniformly diffusing residual energy throughout the space.
The diffusers are also an additional material, making the "cabinetry" even more rigid and, as a result, inert.
As such, only the speaker driver generates the sound reproduction, without interfering, adding or removing
information from the sound signal.
The best sound all to yourself, wherever you go!
Focal is proud to present Stellia, its new closed-back headphones.
Less than three years after the launch of the Utopia open-back headphones, Focal returns to centre-
stage with a new product destined to become the leader among high-end closed-back headphones:
Stellia. Equipped with the brand's very best technology, incorporating numerous innovations and delivering excellent soundproofing, Stellia perfectly illustrates the renowned manufacturer's refusal to compromise on quality. This is French-made luxury at its best.
