I bought the Focal Spirit Pro model and they sounded good, but I returned them after a few days of testing because I needed headphones I could wear for long hours on a tour bus and they were far too painful on my ears after such a short time. I ended up buying both Sennheiser HD 650 and Beyerdynamic DT 880 Pro models because I didnt have any time to waste. I dont know if they are technically better or worse than the Focal, but I do know they at least sound equally as good and perfectly serve my purposes. They can be worn for a long time before feeling uncomfortable and are accurate enough to get me close to a finished mix. My advice is to try before you buy!

This is my experience too - I still have them in a box downstairs but they are uncomfortable to wear for long periods of time.
