Focal Clear

Open back circumaural headphones

Clear are audiophile circum-aural open-back headphones. They represent 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. This provides remarkable dynamics over the entire audio spectrum; bass that is always controlled, even at high volumes, and exemplary linearity in the high-end. The new generation of perforated microfibre ear cushions give the headphones an extremely open design. The user will completely forget Clear are even there, and will be overcome by the feeling of listening to the best loudspeakers on the market.

  • Exclusive full-range speaker driver with an 'M'-shape Aluminum/Magnesium dome (patent pending)

Awards & Reviews

EISA Award High-End Headphone 2018-2019

Clear headphones deliver a wonderfully open and translucent sound thanks to clever design and excellent build quality. (…) Focal has gone all out for greatness and succeeded. (…) The Clear’s dynamic drive units have a specially shaped diaphragm with a roll surround, optimizing response while controlling any break-up modes: this makes for a crisp and insightful sound that’s fatiguefree yet boasts a particularly firm and animated bass.
