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.

Awards & Reviews

EISA Award for Best 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.
