Podcast: The Focal Revolution: How a French Hi-Fi Manufacturer is Revolutionizing Your Music Listening Experience

How did Focal become one of the leading high-end manufacturers of loudspeakers and headphones? The Focal revolution is changing how you listen to music.

Driving change in any industry is difficult; it took Apple more than two decades to become the leading media and technology brand in the world and in the process completely changed how people consume music, movies, and television. On a much smaller scale, Focal is changing how high-end consumers listen to music outdoors, while traveling, at their desks, and in the home.

Their award-winning loudspeakers and headphones can be found in every corner of the globe and their Focal Powered by Naim retail experience is winning converts across North America, Asia, and Europe. The French manufacturer took the long-term view and it is paying off. How did Focal get here? EIC Ian White sat down with Focal’s Marketing Product Manager, Rejean Bedel, to discuss the past, present, and where the Focal/Naim family is headed.
