by Natalie Daher
Wireless headphones from European audio company Focal just got a color-palette refresh.
Described as “delicate and yet expressive” by Focal, the Wireless Chic line is now available in blue, olive and purple. The headphones are equipped with Bluetooth technology and a dual-microphone system.
Focal’s first wireless headphone, the Listen Wireless, retails for $299 and was released in 2017. Rated 3.5 stars by CNET, the sturdy design, sound and call capability were notable features. The headphones’ weight, occasionally harsh sound and lack of noise-cancellation were drawbacks.
According to Focal, the Wireless Chic’s over-ear design includes large ear pads and a “heat-sensitive” memory foam material for comfortable wear. The headphones have 20 hours of battery life and take three hours to charge.
