Just for the record; only the Utopia has beryllium drivers. The less expensive Elear has aluminium/magnesium ones.
BTW, it may be a bit early to expect consumer user reports. I was looking at the Focal website just now and they are still listed as being on pre-order. Which implies that they haven't yet reached shops even if a few reviewers have them.

have demo units and some will be available soon. The US is getting the first shipments and there are Elear in the hands of owners now.
By all accounts the Utopia are spectacular and that is none that have been truly broken in yet.

Well if they are now reaching orinary consumers I hope that soemone posts a review or other comments as they are top of my list of possible 'phone purchases. At least the Elears are, the Utopias being probably more than I would consider spending - maybe.
Very good Tyll Hertsens reviews over at Inner Fidelity.
