    MY TAKE: Focal makes some of the most technically advanced and best sounding headphones on the planet. Clear is latest addition to the line and will surely recognized as am outstanding performer in its class. – Galen Carol

     

    Inspired by our best loudspeakers, these reference headphones embody the Spirit of Sound. Introducing Focal Clear.

    With the launch of Clear, Focal solidifies its position as key innovators in the manufacturing of high-end headphones. Building off of the research used to develop Elear and Utopia, Clear is poised to be the reference open-back headphones under $2,000.


    FOCAL: CONSTANT INNOVATION

    In 2016, Focal launched the Elear and Utopia headphones, featuring a major innovation with the full-range, completely open-backed electrodynamics transducer. This technological feat freed the headphones from any distortion generated by the ports, while ensuring the absence of any subsequent dynamic compression. One year later, Focal is revealing Clear. These circum-aural open-back headphones feature an enhanced speaker driver in addition to an upgraded open back design when compared to Elear. The feeling one gets from listening to Clear overwhelms any sense that the user is even wearing headphones in the first place.


    Clear is equipped with a new generation full-range speaker driver, as well as a frame less copper voice coil. The use of copper gives the voice coil an extremely strong magnetic field, resulting in sound which fully recreates the dynamics of the original recording. Clear is capable of revealing the smallest of details in a recording, providing thanks to linear high-frequencies and the respect shown to transients. The 55 Ohms of impedance means you can use Clear with portable high-resolution audio players.


    35 YEARS OF EXPERTISE IN THE SERVICE OF ABSOLUTE ACOUSTICS

    Headphones generally sound different to loudspeakers due to the shape of the sound wave created by the speaker driver and the distance between the listener and the speaker. Whether it’s an inverted or positive dome, a listening distance of barely an inch requires that the shape of the dome be completely redesigned in order to achieve a plain wave in the context of a full-sized headphone.

    Drawing on its 35 years of expertise, Focal has developed the “M”- shape inverted dome, originally launched on Elear and Utopia headphones. Composed of an Aluminum/Magnesium alloy, it offers an ideal combination of lightness, rigidity and dampening. These traits alongside its open-back design mean that listeners will feel like they are using the best high-fidelity loudspeakers on the market, while enjoying the mobility and comfort that a headphone offers.

    • 3.5mm locking jack sockets on the drivers
    • Low impedance (55 Ohms) to ensure uncompromising use with portable high-resolution audio players
