Focal CLEAR Headphones

 

Mid-line components are often the most neglected in reviews and in consumer interest. Flagships get the raves, while entry-level models get approving nods for their value and economy. But when it comes to pure value for the money, those overshadowed mid-line models are often the best options. That’s exactly what you get from the Clear—a well designed, beautifully made, high-performance earphone that can deliver an exceptional musical experience.
— STEVEN STONE, THE ABSOLUTE SOUND, JUNE 2018

  

Fortunately, listening pleasure is exactly what the Focal Clears gave me. They had that super-satisfying, just-right Goldilocks magic. They are my new real-world reference.

Headphone manufacturers pay attention: If you want to build a high-end headphone, this is the way to do it.

The Clear delivers refined and classy sound that stands with the best high-end headphones available. Improves on the original formula of the Elear, while making just enough key differences in audio quality to matter. ... one of the better carry-cases we’ve encountered.
— ROB BOFFARD, THE MASTER SWITCH, APRIL 2018

 

The top-of-the-range circumaural open back Clear headphones offer listening pleasure worthy of the best speakers. Made in France in Focal's workshops, Clear take inspiration from the best of the technologies and developments made for the Utopia headphones. This means that Clear has an exceptional performance with exclusive full-range speakers, revealing the tiniest details of musical creation. With their design even surpassing Elear in terms of openness, Clear simply makes you forget that you are wearing headphones.

The widely held impression that headphone reduces listening space disappears, with Clear's innovative design. The technologies chosen, paired with the inverted aluminium / magnesium alloy 'M'-profile dome, preserve breadth and dynamics worthy of the best high-fidelity speakers. This thoughtful design also preserves the realism of the sound reproduction: micro-perforated ear cushions and the shape of the headband make them light and comfortable. The sound is characterized by unparalleled uniformity, guaranteeing the best performance. With their new reference headphones, Focal continues the quest for absolute sound.
