Focal Celestee - Closed-Back Headphones - Official Discussion Thread

Got mine from headphones.com last Thursday and have been using it since. It’s… very, very good. I’m pleasantly surprised by the sound quality for a sub-1k headphone. I think I’m going to relegate my DT 177X GO now for when I’m doing other things (and not really paying attention to the music), whereas the Celestee became my go-to set for night gaming, enjoying music, and all the good stuff. Highly recommended.

Okay. I will be the first one to ask. How much better is the Stellia than these? Point by point.

Oh, I know, I know! I bet it’s vinyl cleaner! A colleague of mine had it in a photo he sent me of his audio gear. What do I win?

Ummm, the tap is to dispense liquid Audio Enhancer. Yeah, that’s it Audio Enhancer. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

I look forward to it. I am also curious if you have had any more time with the LCDi4 and your extended impressions on those.

Man, installed a tap for whisky. Whole other level! Now I’ll be wondering if it runs back to a whole-ass cask or what :grin:

Speaking of which I wonder if there’s a whiskey thread on here… that way I won’t derail the thread :wink:

Also looking forward to this!

Yea I would be interested in your “subjective” impressions comparing this to the Focal Radiance as I recently purchased it from (shoutout to Headphones.com) :slight_smile:

I know @Resolve really enjoys the Celestee and said it comes pretty close to the Clear, which I also bought about a month ago and have really been enjoying them. Which is why I am thinking… hmmm… should I? lol
