1. Focal Nomad Spirit One Headphones

Now, if you aren't aware of Focal's eccentrically brilliant Grande Utopia floor standers then a) check them out and b) bear in mind how serious this lot are about audio when reading about its new headphones. The Spirit One cans sport an around-ear, closed-back design with a boasted sound insulation of 20db. In layman’s terms, they clamp around your lughole like a limpet, blocking out all background noise leaving just your heartbeat thumping away. Sound quality is exceptional, as it should be for a pair of cans costing around £200.

Price: £190, focal.com  |  Best for: Those wanting a more hi-fi version of Beats.

This years meet-up was no exception, and with premium audio giants such as Denon, Cambridge Audio and Marantz in attendance, audiophiles have plenty to be excited about in 2012.

We've been out in Munich to check out what the year has in store, and managed to stop drooling for long enough to pull together the most interesting bits of tech on display.
