Focal ELEAR 

The Focal Elears are a top contender for best headphones in their price class, while the Focal Utopias are one of the very best headphones on the planet. Elear delivers 70 percent of the Utopia’s sound—they’re that good.

Sweet Jesus they are comfortable. ... the dynamics on these cans is out of this world. In this regard, every other headphone I have heard has to bend their knee to the Elear.
— DAVE, HEADFONIA, JULY 2017

 

Build quality is spectacular; comfort is very good... Sound quality is superb; this is an extraordinarily dynamic and punchy headphone. Oh my yes, these are hitting the "Wall of Fame" with a vengeance. ... This headphone is a game changer.
— TYLL HERTSENS, INNER FIDELITY, JULY 2016

 

The Elear scores a 9/10 and is my pick for the best full-size headphone to come along in a very long time.

These audiophile headphones have been conceived for true music lovers, who want to rediscover their tracks with so fine details. They exalt the intimacy of a personal and passionate listening session at home while opening new fields of emotion and feelings.

Elear are technophile open-backed headphones manufactured in France by Focal. Inspired by the best technology and acoustic research that went into designing Utopia, our flagship headphones, they offer truly exceptional performance. The mechanical design provides remarkably smooth and seamless style due to the solid aluminum yoke. They also feature memory foam ear cushions for maximum comfort, an essential quality for long listening sessions. Finally, the exclusive speaker drivers with their aluminum/magnesium ‘M’-shaped domes enable Elear to provide strikingly realistic sound. Be inspired by the sound of a high-fidelity system with a pair of Elear headphones, for hours of listening pleasure.
