Focal Radiance by Bentley headphone is a circum-aural, closed-back headphone that has been described as a "re-tuned" and decidedly warmer version of the Focal Elegia. Radiance combines the best of Focal technology with distinctive Bentley design elements.
The limited-release Radiance ( only 200 are being produced ), represents a three-way effort between Focal, Bentley Motors, and Naim Audio. Focal and Naim have been unified partner companies within the Vervent Audio Group since 2011. Focal, based in France, is known for speaker drivers, loudspeakers, and headphones; Naim Audio, based in England, is known for components and systems. Since 2008, Naim Audio has been supplying car-audio systems for British luxury automaker.
Now, the three companies have collaborated to produce two new home audio products: the Radiance headphones and the Naim Mu-so for Bentley Special Edition music player.
Much More than Headphones
Made in France, Radiance incorporates high-end Focal technologies with Bentley's timeless eye for luxury and high-performance craftsmanship. Copper finishes and Diamond motifs decorate the earcups and the inside of the headband. Each detail of these luxury headphones draws on the codes and signature of the Bentley brand.
Every single design decision has been carefully thought out to create the most incredible experience inside and out.
Design that Pushes Boundaries
Made in collaboration with the official Bentley design codes, Radiance features the luxury car manufacturer's “Diamond” effect on the headband, the grille of the earpads, and the cable connectors of the headphones.
With its ultra-sophisticated aluminum design and the finest full-grain leather materials, Radiance reflects the brilliance of its designers. The “Bentley wings” are also present on Radiance, in addition to an elegant copper finish. These high-end headphones are packed with the latest Focal technologies for an astonishing, dynamic listening experience. They are equipped with a full-range speaker driver and a 15/8" ( 40 mm ) aluminum/magnesium “M” shape dome. The bass is deep and impactful, the midrange is balanced and the treble is mellow and linear.
Luxury Born from 200 Years of Craftsmanship
Born from a common passion for excellence, Focal ( 1979 ), Naim Audio ( 1973 ), and Bentley Motors ( 1919 ) are three Premium brands heralded for their expertise and remarkable products. Whereas Focal stands out in the acoustics sector, Naim's expertise is in electronics and Bentley ranks among the finest manufacturers of luxury and racing cars.
Between them, these three brands represent more than 200 years of expertise and cutting-edge engineering. With their individual heritages, they are each world leaders in their field, as well as being acknowledged as exceptional brands in their respective countries: Naim has won Queen's Awards, while Bentley holds a Royal Warrant as a car manufacturer to the British Royal Family and Focal has been named an Entreprise du Patrimonies Vivant ( Living Heritage Company, or EPV ).
Innovation, Expertise & Excellence
Focal, Naim, and Bentley have innovated tirelessly since their beginnings. Their founders – Jacques Mahul for Focal, Julian Vereker for Naim Audio, and Walter Owen Bentley for Bentley Motors – each handed down a passion and taste for innovation. Each generation of hi-fi products and car models is enhanced with new technical, technological, and design innovations offering greater levels of performance and listening and driving pleasure.
This innovative spirit is combined with strict production methods, reflecting each brand's shared pursuit of excellence. Research and development investment, manufacturing and assembly in their workshops, meticulous aesthetics, and unrivaled performance: Focal's Grande Utopia EM Evo hi-fi loudspeaker, Naim's Statement amplifier, and the Bentley EXP 100 GT concept car embody this excellence: the best of Focal, Naim, and Bentley.
In a partnership that goes back to 2008, Naim and Bentley have worked together to design and integrate optimized audio systems for each of the car manufacturer’s vehicles, providing the ultimate in-car sound experience. When Focal and Naim joined forces in 2011, Focal brought its acoustics expertise to bear on loudspeaker optimization.
In 2020, the renowned build quality and performance of the three brands have come together to offer music lovers exceptional listening experiences everywhere. Designers and acoustic and electronic engineers have spent more than a year working together on the development of exclusive special products: the Naim Mu-so for Bentley Special Edition wireless loudspeaker and the Focal for Bentley Radiance hi-fi headphones, creating a unique Bentley Collection.
Refinement & Performance — Timeless Icons
Each product has its own identity, yet embodies the essence of Bentley. The Copper finishes are a reference to the styling of the Bentley Mulliner Bacalar, itself inspired by the DNA of the EXP 100 GT electric concept car. The recurring motif on the products is inspired by Bentley seats’ iconic ‘Diamond’ quilting. The pure design of these special editions is complemented by cutting-edge Naim and Focal technologies for top-end, harmonious sound reproduction, whether you are listening to the Bentley in-car audio system, the Mu-so loudspeaker, or the Radiance headphone.
