Description

Since 1979, Focal's history has been based on offering the most outstanding musical experience to music lovers and ultimate immersion to audio enthusiasts. Focal is passionate about music, power and clarity, and develops audio equipment which brings out the best in music. It has a clear vision of speaker drivers and loudspeakers which respect and honor the musical creation, with the greatest subtlety and finesse. Clear uses a new generation of Focal full-range speakers. For this, we have developed a copper 25.5mm x 5.5mm high unsupported coil to achieve an extremely high magnetic field in the coil. In listening terms, this means uncompromised respect for the dynamics of the audio signal. The tiniest details of the recording are revealed. Clear represents a new evolution of Focal’s now famous completely open-back full-range speaker driver. The 'M'-shape Aluminum/Magnesium dome benefits from a new copper voice coil, providing remarkable dynamics over the entire audio spectrum; controlled bass, even at high volumes, and exemplary linearity in the high-end. This thoughtful design maintains the realism of sound reproduction: micro-perforated ear cushions and the shape of the headband make them light, comfortable and even more open. The sound is characterised by unparalleled uniformity and the best performance. The new generation of perforated microfibre ear cushions give the headphones an extremely open design. You will completely forget Clear are even there, and will be overcome by the feeling of listening to the best loudspeakers on the market.

abunda_amazon_reviews Purchased these headphones from Audio Advice via Amazon. Very reliable service from seller. Upon opening, Focal's slick packaging is a delight. These headphones perform exactly as several reviewers have described: clear, detailed, with no detectable distortion or brightness in the upper range (even for my 70-year old ears!). Ample bass is present that is detailed and not "boomy". Of course, I haven't yet listened to some of my "worst" CDs or downloads, but so far these headphones are a real pleasure to use. Build quality is superb, although the headphone cables are not as manageable as I would like. But this is not a big deal since the cables are easy to change and might be replaced in the future. Headphones are comfortable to wear even after 2 hours of use. I am feeding music from my iMac, via iTunes (gasp!) into an old Audiolab M-DAC that I'm using as a headphone amp. I'm not able to use the balanced cable as the M-DAC only has a 1/4-inch socket. Looks like I'll soon be shopping for a new headphone amp! So far, I have listened to rips (16/44.1 quality) of my favorite CDs, as well as the recent 24/96 download from HDTracks of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (Anniversary Edition) - and the sound quality is excellent. I'm very happy with this purchase.

But unfortunately, they did not have the Clears because they were sold out. After waiting 3 months, I couldn't wait for them to get them back in stock. I extrapolated what I knew about both those headphones to figure out this had to be somewhere in-between, not to mention an excellent price several hundred dollars less than MSRP of $1500. So I hate to say it, I didn't buy local but I couldn't wait any longer. My setup consists of a Bel Canto Phono 1, Schiit Valhalla 2 and a Technics SL-1200MK2 with a Ortofon Super OM 10 cartridge/stylus mounted on a Technics headshell running 1.5g of pressure. Immediately background hum, static and interference were absent vs. my cheaper headphones (~$200). I let my tubes warm up. And then I let a variety of music rip. Bjork. NIN. John Coltrane. Sasha. BB King. Orbital. I can tell you, the variety I threw at it made some things absolutely clear. I needed to clean many of my records, but those that were clean... they were transparent. The sound stage is good, not great. But the clarity of detail and channel separation between frequencies is unreal. The Clears share more with the Utopias than I care to admit barring the toxic exotic drivers in that model, than the Elears. When listening to analog music (classical, jazz, blues, rock) there is no question the sound waves are an accurate reproduction of the vinyl recording. Digital music (e.g. EDM) does see an improvement but certainly not as significant as true analog instruments. Removing the earpads is simple as they are held with 5 plastic pins. On one of the ears, it reveals your serial number. Overall, a great value for the price range. The construction is solid and high quality execution. The cables, it comes with 3 (XLR, 1/4" and 3.5mm). In addition, the travel hard case also comes with a 3.5mm to 1/4" adapter, so technically you have two 1/4" cables. When I look at everything included in the package, it is unreal. Cables themselves costs a few hundreds and they're basically being given away for free here. Don't let the frequency range fool you. It's wide enough for your music despite being narrower than many other high end brands out there on both the low and high end. The headphones are also easy to drive with just about any device you own, but only a good headphone amp will truly make these headphones shine. And for all you guys out there with your DACs and FLAC files... you need to try these on vinyl. There's no comparison vs. digital + DAC.;;Reviewed in the United States on February 1, 2019;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Great value for the money. Bought from Hifi Summit;;Christian;;;This is the end-game.
