Shape and weight offer comfort for longer listening periods Alberta, CANADA, July 22, 2015 — Focal®, a leading French speaker and headphone manufacturer, today announces the company’s first in-ear headphone, Sphear. As a follow up to the successful and well-received over ear headphones in the Spirit line, Focal has built the Sphear from the ground up, aiming to combat two pain points of discomfort with other in-ear headphones; excessive weight and volume at the ear canal. “Consumers seem to have a ‘love-them-or-hate-them’ attitude towards in-ear headphones,” said Ben Jensen, president of Focal North America. “Those that dislike them, typically complain about the weight, excessive bass and overall discomfort caused over long periods of listening. We’ve spent two years of development taking a new approach, not only to the design of the headphone for sound quality, but also in relation to how it interacts within the ear canal, offering a lightweight alternative.” Focal’s innovative concept with the shape of Sphear, utilizes memory foam tips on the front which adapt naturally to the ear, while an extended housing at the back shifts the weight of the headphones to the outer ear.  This bulbous shape makes it possible to have a larger 10.8mm…
