Open back circumaural headphones
Our top-of-the-range open back Clear headphones offer listening pleasure worthy of the best speakers. Made in France in Focal's workshops, Clear take inspiration from the best of the technologies and developments made for our Utopia headphones. This means that Clear have exceptional performance with exclusive full-range speakers, revealing the tiniest details of musical creation. With their design even surpassing Elear in terms of openness, Clear simply makes you forget that you are wearing headphones. The widely held impression that headphone reduce listening space disappears, with Clear's innovative design. The technologies chosen, paired with the inverted aluminium/magnesium alloy M-profile dome, preserve breadth and dynamics worthy of the best high-fidelity speakers. This thoughtful design also preserves the realism of the sound reproduction: micro-perforated ear cushions and the shape of the headband make them light and comfortable. The sound is characterised by unparalleled uniformity, guaranteeing the best performance. With their new reference headphones, Focal continues the quest for absolute sound.
Full-range speaker with M-profile aluminum/magnesium dome
Revealing the tiniest details in sound
The completely open back speaker provides unparalleled respect for dynamics. Clear offer extremely realistic listening. The aluminum/magnesium alloy M-profile dome offers an ideal combination of low weight, high rigidity and excellent damping. This means that high frequencies are linear and transients are fully respected. Clear are capable of precisely revealing the tiniest details of the recording, taking you to the heart of your music. Unparalleled depth and dynamics are the signature of this beautiful pair of headphones.
The microfibre ear cushions provide a degree of openness unequalled in this price range. The 1 millimetre diameter micro-perforations on their outer edge help give an impression of a very open space. The sensation of listening in the room, and not through headphones, is intensified.
