”The Focal Celestee is one of the best-sounding closed-back headphones you can buy.” ’TechRadar’ – Recommends.

Uncompromised sound

Using a combination of aluminium and magnesium, the 40mm drivers deliver exception levels of precision. Focal’s unique ‘M’-shaped inverted dome speaker system increases the radiating surface, helping to improve dynamic scale and bass response. Play your favourite track and expect to hear deeper bass and the most subtle detail that you might not even have heard before.

Closed back for isolation
The closed back design helps keep the sound in and the rest of the world out. Over ear pads and soft foam create a seal around your ears, further isolating you in a musical bubble.

Comfort for all
Featuring a lightweight, aluminium yoke, these headphones smoothly adjust for a snug fit. The deeply cushioned earpads and headband ensure long-term listening comfort.

Premium finish
Using top quality semi-aniline leather for the earpads, the Celestee headphones look and feel as good as they sound. The headband combines leather on the outside with a microfibre inner, giving the perfect combination of style and practicality. Copper detailing combines with the navy blue finish to create a unique and distinctive pair of headphones.

Ready to travel
Suitable for use with portable devices, the Celestee headphones come with everything required for music on the move. The supplied travel case is semi-rigid, making it tough enough to protect the headphones when not in use. The cable is detachable – letting you upgrade or attach different cable lengths. A 3.5mm to 6.35mm convertor plug is also supplied.

Upgrade your listening experience to first class, with the Focal Celestee.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth the money I’ve never spent so much on a pair of headphones before but so glad I did, excellent quality and sound. The only negative I have is the cable length, I ended up having to buy an extension cable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best closed-back I've ever heard As my wife has started working nights, I needed a closed-back set of headphones, having Sennheiser HD600 and AKG 702 open-back pairs. I was able to test both the Elegia and Celestee models, thanks to the helpful staff at the Manchester City Centre shop (which has some quality audio gear in stock these days!). The Celestee was a lot more detailed and natural-sounding, and I went for those - they were at a very good, reduced price. I continue to be impressed: the best closed-back headphones I have heard, and an improvement in most areas on my other pairs. They show very little of the 'cupped' or 'boxy' sound that other closed headphones I have heard exhibit. The height and width of the more speaker-like soundstage is another striking virtue. One obvious problem for home hi-fi users is the supplied cable, which at less than a metre in length is quite daft! [Fine for portable uses, obviously] I managed to get a good quality 3m cable from ScandiSound via Estsy for £90 and am now well-chuffed with both the sound of my Focals and their usability. This has been a worthwhile investment: not exactly cheap, but it is worth pushing the boat out a bit to avoid something disappointing, if you need to get closed-back headphones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buying experience and excellent advice Not used the items yet since they are for my birthday but the manager at Guildford was extremely helpful considering this was my first time back to vinyl, he took time to understand my needs and recommended sensible options to my naive wish list.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing sound I hummed and ahed for a long time before I took the plunge and that was because of the cost, they are amazing. I could go on like I’m some high end expert, talking of the lower to mids are great, but I’m not, but what I can tell you is, the sound quality linked with my dragon cobalt blew me away. I don’t regret it and they look as good as they sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Music in my head With family taking over the living room and kid's tastes dominating the entertainment choices I invested in my first headphone upgrade since the 1990s. Many thanks to Matthew and the team at Richer Sounds for getting me the desired candidates and giving me time and space to thoroughly deliberate and make up my very subjective choice. The Focal Celestee are very typical closed back with a very tight 'in your head' sound - binaural recordings sound fantastic. I compared with the Clear MG which obviously has a much wider soundstage but it just sounded to 'nice and the clean ' whereas the Celestee put my ear right into the music giving me the occasional goosebumps. Needs a more powerful headphone amp though in my mind so I upgraded that too..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning headphones I bought my Celeste about 2 months back from Richer sounds Middlesbrough store, Staff here are excellent, I wanted to let them run in a while before gave my opinion on them, I use these with my smartphone connected to a ifi HIP DAC portable amplifier, I use tidal hi-fi as my steaming service, build quality is top notch as usual from focal, Sound quality is simply stunning very detailed crisp treble, solid mids and a lovely tight bass and very comfortable to wear while you are enjoying hearing little things in recordings that you have never noticed before buy with confidence but use a quality amp to hear them at there best! For me worth every penny spent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Boom, the closed back I have been looking for I have not heard Focal headphones before, previously I have been using Beyerdynamic, Sennheiser or Audeze etc. All of these have been open back and I needed something to keep the little daily noises out of the music. Straight out of the box these were amazing, great sound and wonderful build, they also look very sexy in the flesh. Brilliant. Oh and great service as usual, big up to Marko from Southampton store, amazing customer service.
