Product Description
Made with Focal’s brilliant engineering and extraordinary attention to detail, the Elex headphones take a fundamentally different approach to dynamic drivers—and deliver a better measured performance across the board than headphones several times their price. A refinement of the $1,000 Elear with elements of the $1,500 Clear, they boast several improvements to the sound, build, and aesthetic, too Read More

Man.. so many driver failures. Kinda wondering how many were actually the cable - which also seems to fail sometimes - and they just didn't think to test that.

Also kinda hoping they were cable failures rather than driver failures. The drivers seem to be too top notch to have a inherent manufacturing defect such as faulty/delicate wiring or voice coil. My money is also on the cable being responsible for most (not all) of the "driver failures" because I don't see anyone touting *IT* as the latest in greatest. Everyone who reviews them literally says to throw the stock cables away. I'm right there with you @bding, considering I just handed over six hundred and forty-two hard earned dollars for one of these gorgeous Frenchi-collabo creations. Fingers crossed

So is the Mar/April '20 drop for delivery in August or June? The preorder says est. to ship in August, but a note in the description says they're basically having trouble meeting needs of high demand and you can reserve your order for the next drop that ships June 1st. I'm confused as I would expect it to be the other way around. I'm just wondering because I know people people are having QC issues and I also know I want these headphones. However, I don't want to get stuck with a previously opened 'unopened box' return of a busted unit 4 months down the road only to get my money refunded instead of a brand new set. Can anyone shed light on availability?

Well, went ahead and preordered. Hope I don't get shafted by driver issues and a lack of replacement stock. I've just never been this emotionally driven to blow money on such a luxury item while simultaneously cringing at the prospect of it not lasting more than a couple months. Either way, can't wait to report back because I'm sure they are going to be amazing

What is the warranty on these please? It seems there are QC issues and wouldn't want to purchase something like this which might not work three or six months down the road. Thanks!

I am located in the UK and purchased my Elex headphones as used on ebay from a U.S seller. I cant fault them at the moment but reading the comments I am concerned about the durability and what options I would have if a driver fails. Is sending them back direct to Focal for repair an option?

Not that it adds much to the conversation but the right driver on a pair of Elex's I bought back in November just crapped out after less than 15 hours of use. Awaiting a response from customer service.

I don't think they currently have any replacements. I have a replacement Elex I got about a month ago because my left driver stopped working. But I think I got some of the last ones from the last batch. I am guessing they will get another batch eventually, but it might make sense for you to get a full refund and get in on the next drop.

In the 2 days since my last post, Drop replied with a link to my RMA sticker which I took to UPS, mailed my return and, as of 10:00 this am, they have received said product. Pretty freaking great customer service by Drop and UPS!

Why they don't ship to Europe? Will they do?

I believe this was discussed when the Elex first came out. It was part of the deal with Focal - Focal did not want this lower cost version competing on their home turf.

If anyone here has a pair, I'm interested in buying Utopia pads.

If I order, or I should say, pre-order these right now my card won't be charged until the end of this drop? Or will I be charged right away?
