Now, first I wanna say that these are my second monitors, before that I've had Tannoy Reveal 802. Compared to them, the Focals are an entirely different level of everything - build quality, tweaking capabilities and most importantly SOUND.
These guys gave no distortion when I played them to the maximum possible level of my sound card (which is Komplete Audio 6) and I had to play them on the max with the +6dB sensitivity knob on the back turned on to have them distort. The sound, at least in my room, which isn't treated AT ALL (still : ), was very even throughout the frequency range regardless of the volume level. The sound is smooth. I think that's the best word. High frequencies are mild IMO, I'm comparing that to the Tannoys which were really harsh and had my ears ringing in a matter of minutes and I mean a few. So you can do prolonged mixing sessions even on higher levels given you like that. Keep in mind though, that these guys sound BIG and you can easily get your neighbors pissed off and very quickly too. If you are gonna use them in a small room, like 8-10 square meters or so - either just forget about it (buy the smaller ones) or have your room treated really well. Which leads us to bass. It's very rich and full but without being over hyped. It's very well balanced in relation to the other two bands and the mids are very present as well without being "scooped". In general these speakers sound very natural and with all the tweaking capabilities you can easily adjust them to your space. As far as stereo imaging is concerned - I had them placed about 2 meters away from each other (instead of the widely proposed 3m) cause such are my spatial capabilities and yet I felt like I could "see" the sounds (now that's a strange one - FEELING like you could SEE SOUNDS?! LOL) from the midrange up as if they were visualised on a screen in front of me.
Anyway, I'm dabbling now. I wanna finish this by saying that I am by no means close to a professional level musician (yet :D) but my opinion is that monitor speakers have to be THE most subjective piece of equipment in your studio. The way your room is treated is probably 36 times more important than what speakers you have. So, if you can, always first audition the ones you are buying and then just take the ones which sound most pleasing to you. With time you're gonna learn them anyway, with their flaws and their strong sides. Obviously I like those and I'd personally choose them again over any other pair in the same price range. Simply because the price to quality ratio is insane. I hope that helps and I hope it's confirmed from other sources so there can be a trustworthy info on these. Also, time will show as well, cause the materials are a big factor too and the Alphas are a relatively new player on the market.
Thank you for reading. : )

They sound awesome!

i was a bit confused about getting the 50s or the 80s, because I have a small bedroom studio. If you treat you room accordingly they have a very clear sound, the low end is crazy and they highs and mids are crystal clear.

I highly recommend them! :D
