Focal Celestee High-End Headphones
Focal Celestee High-End Headphones
Elegant design and remarkable sound performance
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.
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.
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 refers to the method in which the headphones connect to the audio source. Headphones can be either wired or wireless.
The Celestee is the true successor to Focal's previous closed-back, the Elegia. Styled in navy-blue with copper finish, the Celestee is absolutely gorgeous to behold with the sound to back it up. This is one of the best closed-back headphones next to Focal's own Stellia and is a must for anyone looking for a good pair of closed-back headphones.
The Celestee headphones boast outstanding tonal balance: incredible bass extension with precise treble and high-mids to delight any music lover.
Celestee is a set of high-end headphones combining elegant design and remarkable sound performance. They incorporate the latest Focal technologies: 15/8" (40mm) Aluminium/Magnesium ‘M’-shaped dome full-range speaker drivers and acoustic treatment within the earcups to prevent resonance.

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)
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|
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 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.
