We are delighted to present Clear Mg : a new model of high-end open-back headphones. Combining new heights of innovation and performance with exceptional style and comfort, Clear Mg headphones offer class-leading quality.
Made in France, the new headphones boast upgraded performance thanks to new magnesium dome drivers. After more than three years of research and development, our engineers chose this new alloy which - combined with the dome's 'M' shape - gives the headphones even greater lightness, rigidity and damping: the three success factors for any speaker/headphone driver.
The light and flexible surround also provides better dynamics and greater bass impact. The sound reproduction is even finer, with even greater precision and impact, creating a strikingly realistic sound.
The new grille has a honeycomb 'M'-shaped design that more closely follows the curves of the driver. The more open design allows for a wider soundstage, while the reduced space between the driver and grille enables even more precise high-frequency reproduction.
Clear Mg headphones stand out first and foremost for their look. With their Chestnut and Mixed-Metal finish and their fine materials (leather, aluminium, microfibre), the headphones are extremely elegant. The new honeycomb grille on the earcups is a design highlight: not only does it increase the perceived value of the headphones; the more open structure contributes to the upgraded sonic performance. Finally, their perforated microfibre earpads offer enhanced opening and comfort.
Acoustics are also exceptional: the full-range drivers with 'M'-shaped magnesium dome provide even more dynamic sound rendering, particularly in the low frequencies, and more detail across the full spectrum. Meanwhile, we have preserved the neutral sound signature that was so popular in the Clear.

Focal Clear Mg Open-Back Headphones **IN STOCK**
These headphones are amazing. Comfort wise they feel soft on the ears and can be worn for many hours at a time. Sound wise they have a great tone. It feels like I'm at a concert with the open back design of these headphones. The highs sound smooth with nothing overpowering and the bass is very solid. This is an amazing set of headphones that I would recommend to all people. Also the looks of them is phenomenal.
A beautiful presentation of the music with great lush mids and great extended high without the harsh metallic edge. The best timbre of any full dynamic headphone I’ve ever heard. Great punch and great bass and mid bass textures. Focal did a great job with the magnesium driver taming the slight bright edge from the outgoing model. A keeper.
I love everything about the Clear MG. They are beautiful, well built and extremely comfortable. Most of all the sound signature exhibits just the right amount of warmth to my taste, and at the same time excels in detail retrieval. I've never heard the original Clear, but now I don't think I need to thanks the the Clear MG. I would definitely recommend these to family and friends, or anyone for that matter.
Though I have never heard the OG Clear, I bought the MG solely off it's color and the review from Head-fi that it basically sounds the same with smoother treble. The decay / realism in the music makes this a great headphone to listen to and enjoy music for me
