Focal Audio…

Operating out of France, the team at Focal are renowned largely for their top-end headphone collection. Their open-back Clear headphones prove that the level of detail presented through audiophile speakers can also be delivered in the intimacy of headphone listening.

While most headphones reduce the sound stage of the listening experience, Focal’s aluminum/magnesium alloy dome reveals far more dynamics with far less noise. (Sensitivity: 104dB SPL/1mW @1kHz. Frequency response: 5Hz-28kHz.) The memory foam ear cushions and leather & perforated microfiber headband join via a solid aluminum yoke, which molds to the face and results in an extremely comfortable listening experience.

Most people don’t realize how much detail they are leaving out of their music via inferior headphones. Focal headphones, when combined with lossless audio files and a proper DAC, are an immersion in detail. Their wider sound stage and low impedance (55 OHMS) can transport the listener, and make them forget they are listening to headphones at all.

David Wasserman

CEO

David started his career in the audio business selling new and used hi-fi at Audio Exchange, a west village haven for music lovers to share stories and listen to good music.  While there, David recognized his passion for entrepreneurship. Soon after his start as a salesman, he became the store’s general manager, successfully running the day-to-day operations and increasing the business’s profitability.  After a few years leading Audio Exchange, he decided to venture out on his own.  What resulted was Stereo Exchange: a store that became a New York institution and a destination for all lovers of good music.

CEO

Ann has been side by side with David since Stereo Exchange’s beginning.  In fact, it was her initial financial investment that helped Stereo Exchange get off the ground.  Since then, she has been an invaluable part of the organization, contributing significantly to branding, human resources, and customer service.  Without her acute eye, instinct for good people, and insistence on excellence, Stereo Exchange would not have enjoyed the longevity it has.
