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

Hey Drop personnel: You've sold almost 2k of these headphones. How about getting Focal to offer their carrying case here at a discount. This seems like it would be a no-brainer!

Could somebody measure the size of the box? A friend of mine might bring this to me from Canada (he's coming anyway). Thank you

Does anyone know how do I contact support in case of a malfunction? The right side is muted.

Just received my Elex. Sensational headphones. My Chord Hugo2 drives these really well. Bass is fast and tight. There's a really nice sense of 'grip' on the music. The cable stiffness I read about is not an issue at all for me. The cable length is perfect for me (the 3m Elear is too long for me and the 1.2m that comes with Clear is too short for me). My only complaint has nothing to do with the received product - I wish replacement pads were available because I will undoubtedly need replacements this time next year. I'll be using these cans a lot. Clear replacement pads can be purchased and are probably similar/same except they're not black to match Elex. I really hope Massdrop allows existing owners to buy replacement pads. I'm really happy with this purchase. Dynamics are incredible. I've previously had Sennheiser HD800-S and MrSpeakers Aeon Flow (Open and Closed).

I didn't touch my HD6XX after I got my Elex. Sold them a few weeks ago. For me, absolutely no contest. Didn't care a hell of a lot for the HD800S either, very limited in terms of genres I liked on them. Elex is an all-around beast.

Seeing how much the drivers flex, I guess they require no burn in at all? XD

Hi, does anyone know if the cable that comes with Elex is like the Clear's cable which has both 3.5mm/6.3mm plug? Or does Elex's cable only have 6.3mm plug?

I've been reading through this entire thread and felt compelled to discuss my experiences with my Elex and the Elegia concerning the clipping issues users are experiencing at high volumes with tracks with a lot of bass or eq'ed bass. I'm using a THX AAA 789 with an SMSL SU-8 at home and I use a Monoprice 788 at work. I use the Elegia all day at work and use the Elex at home at night. I also have many other headphones including ZMF, Sendy Aiva and 6XX to name a few. I've never encountered any clipping of any kind or any audible issue with either of these headphones. They have been rock solid and I love them both. I'll add that I do not EQ either of them. I don't understand why anyone would ever need to boost the bass especially on the Elex.

You'd be amazed at how careless folks are with their own property, sadly. As a car guy, it always makes me sad to see so many folks at automatic car washes for example, knowing it's just going to leave swirls in their paint. It's a hassle to always hand wash my car, but I treat even my budget items with the same care I would for an expensive car. In short, some folks just don't care one way or the other until something breaks or looks bad and would rather blame the item instead of their poor habits and lack of maintenance

Ha ha, I wouldn't go as far as to say they are vandalizing their own property, but I'd make the analogy of someone complaining about their car not working properly after grinding their gears because they like to drive it way too fast and don't know how to properly use a stick shift & clutch. People can destroy their own headphones if they want, just don't complain about the product on forums when you're the one to blame for destroying them through misuse.

Are these better than the HD800S?

I'd have to label them as "different". They compliment one another but I wouldn't get rid of my HD800S for them or vice versa. I would say that I rotate between them evenly.

Last I checked it was 3.5mm. You can set a backup balance on paypal for example your debit card.
