Elegant design and remarkable sound performance

Cup style More information
Open-back headphone designs are often higher-performance but have poor noise isolation and leak sound. Closed-back designs provide better noise isolation and leak less sound.


Wearing style More information
Over-ear headphones sit over your ear and surround your ear with a ring of padding. On-ear headphones are padded but rest on top of your ear. In-ear monitors are worn inside your ear canal.


Driver type More information
Speakers and headphones use a device called a 'driver' to create sound. Different types of drivers have different strengths and weaknesses, but can all produce great sound. Common varieties include dynamic, planar magnetic, and electrostatic.


Connectivity More information
Connectivity refers to the method in which the headphones connect to the audio source. Headphones can be either wired or wireless.

Title Description
Sensitivity More information
Headphone sensitivity measures how loud a pair of headphones will be at a given signal strength. Headphones with higher sensitivity ratings will produce louder sounds than headphones with lower sensitivity ratings. It is measured in dB SPL (decibels of sound pressure level) per unit of power (typically 1 milliWatt) or sometimes unit of voltage (typically 1 Volt) from the source at a frequency of 1 kHz.
105dB SPL / 1 mW @ 1 kHz
Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) More information
When driving headphones at high volumes, it is possible for the diaphragm (the ‘speaker’ inside the headphones) to be unable to move fast enough. This leads to distortion, manifesting itself as crackling, popping or the alteration of musical notes. Most headphones will fall below 1% THD.
0,1 % @ 1 kHz / 100 dB SPL
Frequency Response More information
Headphone frequency response refers to the frequency-specific sensitivity of the output. Frequency responses show the range that headphones are capable of reproducing—a graph shows which frequencies are accentuated over others. The ideal range covers the audible sound range of 20 Hz – 20 kHz.
5Hz – 23kHz
Driver Type Electrodynamic full-range
Driver Materials & Size 40mm Aluminium/Magnesium ‘M’-shaped dome
Headphone Weight 430 grams
Warranty More information
Warranty differs from manufacturer to manufacturer. Warranty covers factory defects but most manufacturers do not cover drops, water damage, driver damage, mistreatment of the product, etc. It is always best to look at the manufacturer's website for the most up to date warranty information.

What is the Focal Celestee warranty?

The Focal Celestee comes with 3 years of manufacturer warranty.

Can my coworkers or family members hear my music when I'm listening?

The Focal Celestee offers excellent isolation and in 99% of cases, no one will hear the music you are listening to. However, if someone is in close proximity, there is a chance they will be able to hear some music depending on your listening volume.

Does the Focal Celestee require a headphone amplifier?

No the Focal Celestee can be run straight from your phone! For optimal listening on the go, we recommend pairing it with the iFi Audio GO Blu or the iFi Audio Hip DAC V2
