The circum-aural open-back headphones have a special speaker driver which features a frameless copper voice coil. This voice coil has a strong magnetic field and as a result, reacts very quickly to dynamic changes in the music. As a result, your music will sound more like the original record and produce a more precise and "clearer" (pun intended- I'm sorry) emotional feeling. The headphones produce detailed transients with linear high frequencies.


The Focal Clear Open-Back Headphones include the same "M"-shaped inverted dome that the Focal Elear and Focal Utopia headphones have. This helps to make the headphones produce a plain wave, which otherwise would be impossible because, after all, the spears are barely an inch away from your ear. The dome is made of an aluminium/magnesium alloy making it light yet rigid, with a good amount of dampening. As a result, the lucky listeners who will own the Focal Clear Headphones will have the best fidelity headphones on the market that employ such mobility and comfort.

Ear pads on the Focal Clear are specially designed to act like a high-end listening room. They have very small 1mm sized perforations, contributing to the overall openness of the sound. The headband and ear cup position and shapes are designed to fit so comfortably on the head as to make them feel weightless.

The headband itself has a constant bend so that no matter the size of the head, the weight is distributed evenly to take pressure off the ears. It provides top-of-the-line sealing and comfort.


What the press is saying:

"Yes, $1,499 is a lot of money for a pair of headphones. But the emotional involvement and sonic revelations you’ll uncover listening to your favorite music through these headphones will be worth it. You'll hear your musical collection like the first time."


"These $1,500 headphones from France feel and sound divine"

Focal does it again

I actually got goosebumps listening to opera. It kills on rock and any live recording is a front row seat. It's a major investment but it pays you back ten fold. Puts you into the songs. I'm going to take Sunday and devote it to getting lost in my music. If you can manage the cost, the satisfaction will overwhelm you. Enjoy life with misic

These are amazing, detailed and balanced from the lows to the highs. A little on the bright side, but i like that sparkle up top. Bass is full and tight, not overdone. Even upon first listen these are wonderful. I'm sure they will improve with break in time. Also having a balanced cable built will help, these are power hungry so have a good source. On Fiio M15 they can handle every bit of 3.5mm over ear headphone mode without a hint of distortion. They will benefit with the extra power of balanced mode for sure. Audio46 delivered fast, and has the best customer service. Really happy with my experience and this was a great purchase. High quality product that sounds great. Thank you!

As the name Clear

Focal clear is the headphone designed in between Utopia and Eler. I really love the completely balenced sound image. All frequency was clear. There is nothing to complain about it with the price tag and build quality.
