Focal gives a new meaning to high-end headphones with Utopia by Tournaire. Amidst other jaw-dropping features, the headband has a trilogy setting that is made of 18-karat gold encrusted with a whopping 6.5 karats of diamonds, all done by hand. This luxury item can be yours for $120,000.
Focal’s Utopia by Tournaire is built off of their Utopia model that features entirely unique open-backed full-range speaker drivers with pure Beryllium ’M’-shaped domes for a sound like you’ve never experienced before. The magic of that sound engineering is paired with the luxury of a carbon fibre yoke and a true lambskin leather headband and padded ear cuffs that is then enhanced with the Tournaire gold and diamond touch. Surprisingly, these are not wireless, rather they come with a cable that was hand selected so as to provide the ultimate fidelity of sound at a low impedance that also allows for low crosstalk, and electromagnetic shielding from interference.
A portion of the profits from this $120,000 pair of headphones will be given to a specific charity, the P’tit LOUIS association, dedicated to saving 8-year-old Louis Biscini who suffers from a rare degenerative disease, spinal muscular atrophy type 1. You can also buy a specially designed stand just for these headphones for an extra $12,000. This is one of those products that is so fancy you don’t order it online, rather you call a French number and set it up or if you are in the neighborhood of Paris you can drop by for an in person showing.
