Focal Shape Studio Monitors

With a dramatic design that instantly sets them apart from most nearfield monitors, Focal Shape monitors are designed to deliver accurate mix representation from the highest frequencies to the lowest. Leave no detail of your mix unheard!

Focal chose to forego a port in favor of dual passive radiators on either side of the Shape 40, 50, 65 and Twin. This allows them to be placed back-up against a wall with no resonance issues. Likewise, their low-directivity tweeters make for a wide sweet spot. Their woofers are made of a flax fiber core surrounded by twin layers of glass fiber for rigidity, lightness and excellent internal damping.

Focal Alpha Studio Monitors

A great place to start with Focal's monitoring brilliance is in the Alpha Series. An ideal choice for home studios, Alpha monitors are designed to deliver accurate monitoring in less-than-ideal listening environments like small and untreated rooms. Their low directivity means you don't have to fuss much with their placement to get an accurate representation of your mix.

Consistency and versatility are the calling cards for Focal Alpha monitors. Their frequency response remains the same at low and high volumes and they are a popular choice for mixing anything from acoustic trios to electronic music.

Focal Headphones

Whether you prefer the feel of headphones when monitoring or want to listen to your mix on the go, Focal headphones will get an accurate reference right to your ears.

Listen Pro headphones were made to move, with a foldable design and memory foam earpads. And though they're the most affordable Focal headphones, they still deliver an incredible 5 Hz - 22 kHz frequency response.

For audiophiles, there's the Focal Elegia. These elegant over-ear headphones deliver a supremely clear audio image, with high-end response reaching a stratospheric 23 kHz. Their low-impedance rating makes them a pair that still sounds great plugged into your smartphone, too.

Focal's Clear Professional headphones are the creme-de-la-creme. These open-back headphones deliver an insane 5 Hz - 25 kHz frequency range, leaving absolutely no part of your mix unheard. Their microfiber earpads are designed to be so comfortable, you forget you're wearing headphones as you experience pure sonic bliss.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as you Pay® installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as you Pay® plans.
