High-end French audio manufacturer Focal is offering the chance to upgrade your headphone game this September as part of its new trade-in scheme. Act fast this month and you could get anywhere between £150-£1000 / €150-1000 off suggested retail prices when you swap out any, yes any, pair of headphones you like.
The promotion, which runs from the 4th to the 30th of September, is available on six pairs of Focal headphones, including the fantastic, five-star Focal Bathys cans and the awesome (and awesomely priced) flagship Utopia model. To take advantage, all you have to do is return your old headphones to one of Focal's given retailers, choose a pair that you would like to upgrade to and then receive the given discount on your fancy new French cans. It's that simple.
How much you will receive, of course, depends on the model in question. With six models included in the deal, the trade-in values for Focal's own cans are as follows:
- Bathys: £150 / €150 reduction on a new model
- Celestee: £200 / €200 reduction
- Clear Mg / Clear Mg Professional: £300 / €300 reduction
- Stellia: £600 / €600 reduction
- Utopia: £1000 / €1000 reduction
We have been hugely impressed with Focal's recent efforts within the world of (mostly) high-end headphones, awarding practically every model we have tested a coveted five-star rating. The Focal Utopia 2022 wowed us with their exceptional detail and articulate bass, while the slightly cheaper Stellia are as sonically refined as they are stylishly rendered. The famed Focal Bathys, meanwhile, remain one of the best pairs of headphones you can buy for under £1000 / $1000.
For further information, a list of Bathys retailers and a full rundown of the headphones involved in the scheme, check out Focal's official website. Please note, however, that the promotion is not available in North America. Happy trading!
