Focal Easya Wireless 2 Way Floorstanding Speakers
The name Focal commands the utmost respect throughout the audio industry for many good reasons. For one, they manufacture the Utopia, widely regarded as the industry’s most accurate, technically capable speakers and the standard the rest of the industry is constantly attempting to live up to.
The Easya is another speaker everyone will be scrambling to match. Its signature is one of pure and unadulterated musicality with Focal’s trademark accuracy.
While the Beolab 18 showcases superior transmission tech, with the new WiSA standard supporting up to 24/96k (Kleer comes up a bit short at 16/44k), and sports better microdetailing as a result, the tonality of the Easya is more neutral and will probably please audiophile ears compared to the richer response of the Bang and Olufsen offerings.
The Easya also includes support for the higher-resolution APT-X Bluetooth codec, ensuring the highest quality transmission from compatible mobile devices including the Samsung Galaxy and HTC One lines of Android smartphones. Unfortunately Apple has left users with standard Bluetooth, but they can still connect to the Easya albeit with lower fidelity transmission which won’t quite do justice to the Focal’s audio chops.
High-end products targeted at consumers tend to come and go, but Focal always prioritizes sound quality and accuracy above all. Since they’ve taken the first step in targeting audiophiles with wireless tech, the rest of the industry will be close behind. Despite transmission limitations, the Easya is no slouch and I’m sure it will find a happy audience as a more casual setup for audiophiles in the office or bedroom.
