Last September, the companies Focal and Tournaire signed a partnership with Ubisoft to support the worldwide release of Assassin’s Creed Origins, the latest installment in the famous saga. This 100% French partnership, yet international in scope, has produced two limited series of high-end Focal hi-fi headphones dressed in the colors of the game. These jewels of technology were designed on the basis of Listen Wireless and Utopia by Tournaire.
“From audiophile headphones adorned with 18k gold to consumer Bluetooth headphones”
The Assassin’s Creed Origins Utopia by Tournaire helmet, first shown in the Ancient Egypt section of the British Museum in London last month, is made of 150 grams of 18-karat gold. This is an adaptation of the Focal Utopia by Tournaire headphones, which were launched in June 2016. Priced at 100,000 euros (110,000 with support), these headphones designed in 750 thousandths yellow gold set with 6.5 carats of diamonds is the most expensive helmet in the world. While the plot of the new installment of the saga takes place in ancient Egypt, this new Focal helmet features sumptuous patterns inspired by this era. The jewelry company Tournaire has also made a yellow bronze base which represents the bust of “Bayek”, the main character of the game.
This true work of art, which required the intervention of a 3D designer, a goldsmith and a founder, is a very limited edition of only 10 copies. Designed for the attention of the biggest fans of the saga and the wealthiest audiophiles, count no less than 50,000 euros to offer it to you and an additional 12,000 euros to obtain its associated base. The Assassin’s Creed Origins Listen Wireless is a much more affordable version, but just as faithful to the graphic codes of the license. Offering the same technical characteristics as its original version launched by Focal in June 2017, this Bluetooth headset adopts a design in the colors of the game to the delight of fans of the saga. 2,222 copies are already available exclusively from Ubisoft at 249 euros each.
Already recognized worldwide for their exceptional know-how in their respective fields, the partner companies Focal and Tournaire continue to be talked about on the international scene through important partnerships. Focal being a French brand that has been perpetuating the values of high fidelity for decades, the audiophile world can only rejoice!
