It’s very nuanced. Does microdynamics very well
Focal headphones are legit. Unfortunately, my mom liked my Clear so much she "borrowed" them. I haven't heard them in over 6 months. Thankfully I have a Utopia but still....rude :P
You flagged one thing I love about Focal headphones too. Super satisfying at low volumes. Can’t crank them either IMO, but I’m ok with that.
That’s what I love about the Elex as well. Crank the leftmost knob on the Loki and enjoy low-volume listening while working.
@zonto - The headphone does begin to fatigue at higher volumes. It's like Focal is forcing me to not exceed safe listening levels.
@TheIceman93 Agreed. Haven't used mine in a while, but when I measured Utopia at normal listening volumes on Ragnarok 1, anything above 80dB average on rock/punk was too much. Could go a little bit higher with Ragnarok 2. Need to get a new headphone amp...
