The closed-back headphones are Bluetooth 4.1 aptX compatible, allowing wireless use. Characterized as offering “close to CD performance” according to Focal, the headphones sport 40 mm Electrodynamic Titanium/Mylar drivers, thermo-sensitive 22 mm-thick memory foam on the ear pads intended to provide comfort and isolation, and carry 20 hours of autonomy per 3 hours of charge.
