Feel like a bit more needs to be said.

Most people are going to be driving these headphones from their laptops/phones and most laptops/phones do not have the sufficient power required to drive headphones like these.

So then you have to start thinking about buying a DAC, AMP, or DAC/AMP combo.

Then you have to ask yourself do you only want to listen to your headphones while sitting at a desk (with a wall outlet DAC/AMP) or want to be portable (requiring a portable DAC/AMP)

Budget solutions range between $100-200 for a decent DAC/AMP combo

Now that you have that figured out you need to subscribe to a music service that actually offers music streaming at a higher bitrate. Cheapest solution right now is Apple Music HD as Tidal HiFi is ridiculously overpriced and their MQA format is snake oil at best.

Once you got that figured out you will enjoy audiophile grade headphones and be able to appreciate new subtle nuances and aspects of songs you have heard 100s of times before.
this is most definitely not a no name brand. as a matter of fact, focal is one of the most popular brands in the world of audiophiles
Super helpful comment, looks like. Cheapest price available right now is this post, but OP must be a shill then. Guess the shill helped me find a really great priced headphone to go to my collection. Damn shills.

When I was younger I would have said a person is crazy for spending this much on headphones. After growing up I would say Focals are money well spent. The only way these are a waste of money is if you listen to mp3s.

Works fine without a dedicated DAC/Amp. And this is coming from a guy that has a decent stack. They sound incredibly detailed just like the regular focal speakers. Well maybe a bit more refined than the Aria line. That said, mine went dark on right side after 4 months of intermittent use. Like a couple of hours every few days. I am not the only one with the quality issues either. Fantastic sound but worth getting an extended warranty I think.

OP is probably an adorama shill. he posted links to these discounted focal elegias multiple times and if you search for the focal elegias on the adorama site without this direct link, it costs $890. SHILL DETECTED!!!
