The Focal CLEAR headphones are the latest evolution in the Focal’s renowned, open-back, full-range speaker family. Theses high-res headphones feature a custom designed M-shaped, 40mm full-range inverted-dome driver that features a frameless copper voice coil. Constructed from an aluminum/magnesium alloy, this driver accurately produce notes along a massive frequency range spanning from 5Hz to 28kHz. Highs are crisp and sparkly. Mids are lush and full. The bass is deep and powerful. Technical talk aside, Focal CLEAR Over-Ear High-Resolution Audiophile Headphones create a spacious, immersive soundstage that lets you hear music the way artist’s want it to be heard -- clear and powerful.

Quality Components

Our friends at Focal carefully selected the finents components when they assembled their CLEAR headphones. These over-ear high-res audiophile headphones feature a patent-pending “M”- shaped diaphragm, originally developed for the company’s much more expensive flagship headphone, the UTOPIA. The over-the-ear, open-back design delivers an open soundstage. Copper voice coils extend notes at the highest frequencies adding exciting new details to your favorite tunes. But what about the bass? Thanks to the massive 40mm drivers the Focal Clear delivers impactful and accurate bottom end you can feel.

Elegant design

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, or if we are talking about the Focal CLEAR, it is on the ears of the listener. From the elegant curves of the aluminum yoke to the stylish finish, these headphones make a fashion statement. But in the case of the Focal CLEAR, beauty is more than skin deep. The leather headband, and 20mm padded headphones, don’t just look good, they fit the contour of your head, creating a custom fit that ensures long lasting listening pleasure.  

Cables galore

Amazing sound quality and comfort - it is by far my favorite headphone to listen to and one of the most comfortable.

My only issues are with regards to how well it holds up over time. I've had these for nearly 2 years now, and there is quite a bit of wear just from regular daily usage. The light color alcantara gets very dirty. This isn't as much of an issue on the earpads since they are replacable, but the headband also gets visually noticibly dirty. It is also unfortunate that the earpad replacements are quite pricy.

In addition, the silver colored paint on the plastic parts tends to flake off easily. There are some spots with raw plastic where I typically grab the headphones to put them on.

If these issues were fixed, this would be perfect.
