Made in Focal's Workshops in St. Etienne France, Clear is their newest reference high-fidelity headphone, taking inspiration from our best technologies found in Utopia and innovations that defined Elear. Clear's full-range speakers and open back design reveal the tiniest musical details. This is important because it is the widely held impression that headphones reduce the listening space, thus impeding the realism of the sound reproduction.
Focal have designed Clear to bet the pinnacle of openness, when you're wearing Clear you will forget you are even wearing headphones. Closing your eyes, it is as if you are seated in the middle of a custom listening room with the best high-fidelity speakers available placed in front of you. This is because of the inverted aluminum/magnesium alloy M-profile dome which preserves breath and dynamics worthy of Focal's finest high-fidelity speakers. While the micro-perforated ear cushions, specially designed yoke, and luxury headband make Clear both light and comfortable. What you will hear is unparalleled uniformity, and what you will feel is a transcendent understand of music.
Welcome to absolute 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.
The leather of headband and aluminum yoke are Clear’s centrepieces and provide the iconic styling, in the tradition of Elear. The sophisticated design of the headband shape means that it fits all head sizes.
