The Elex represents the culmination of Focal's brilliant engineering minds coming together to bring the best of Elear and Clear to create a truly great dynamic headphone listening experience. 

Our take: Reviewer Fc-Construct found the Elex to be a meaningful upgrade from the Sennheiser HD 600, offering a crisp treble forwardness and air with greater clarity and openness. "But what truly sets the Elex apart from the HD 600 and almost every other headphone under $1,000 is its punch and dynamics. It brings a level of energy and liveliness to music that compels you to engage in the listening experience." Read the review
