Using the traditional mechanical know-how in the Saint Etienne region, Focal-JMlab designs and produces speaker cabinets for the home, speakers for car audio systems, monitoring speakers for professional studios and, more recently, audio headsets.

While some of the products are top-of-the-line, luxury units, the overall line is actually quite varied in terms of use and price. Among these, the luxurious Grande Utopia is the brand’s showcase product, the one that made a name for the company on the world audiophile scene.

Most products are handmade at the plant in Saint Etienne and at the cabinetmakers’ shop in Bourbon-Lancy, in Burgundy, two sites where just some fifteen people have this unique, highly technical know-how that is transmitted in-house only.

Lastly, the company unquestionably has an international reputation as the vast majority of its sales are made with exports.
