OPEN BACK CIRCUMAURAL HEADPHONES:
Our top-of-the-range 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 our Utopia headphones. This means that Clear have 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 reduce 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 characterised by unparalleled uniformity, guaranteeing the best performance. With their new reference headphones, Focal continues the quest for absolute sound.

Focal - CLEAR Professional
Product Code: Focal - CLEAR Professional
Clear professional headphones represent the essential tool for the most demanding professionals. The only objective: to be the ultimate tool for high quality playback. These open circum-aural headphones incorporate a remarkable evolution of the driver and an extremely open design aiming to make the headphones disappear, for the benefit of the sound. Clear Professional headphones are so comfortable that you forget you are wearing them and the listening experience feels like studio monitors. Its M-profile Aluminium/Magnesium dome has a new copper coil which provides total dynamic respect over the entire audio spectrum, with an extremely well defined and always controlled bass. At the same time, the very low-mass speaker moving parts mean that these headphones reproduce the finest details in the higher frequencies.
Turning to the headband and yokes, their design ensures that the headphones are in full contact with the head, for optimal comfort. The new generation of perforated microfiber ear cushions provides an extremely open design.
Clear Professional uses a new generation of Focal 40 mm full-range speaker. A 25mm diameter, 5.5mm long unsupported copper coil has been developed. The material chosen, copper, has the effect of achieving an extremely high magnetic field in the coil. With this, the moving parts are always under control, even at maximum capacity, providing bass definition worthy of the best subwoofers. Its 55 Ohm impedance makes Clear Professional easy to drive, even in a mobile configuration, directly connected to the headphones output of a laptop. It contributes to an exceptional impulse response with a break-up raised to 24 kHz. Thus, high frequencies are extremely linear and transients totally respected. Clear Professional is capable of precisely revealing the finest details of the recording, proving extremely precise control.
What makes headphones significantly different from a pair of monitor speakers is the wave-form generated by the loudspeaker and the listening distance. In order to achieve a plane wave in a very close nearfield, the shaping of the dome had to be rethought carefully because of the few centimeters of distance inside it.
The French manufacturer's 35 years of experience have resulted in a new generation of domes, launched on Elear and Utopia headphones: the M-profile dome. Formed from an Aluminum /Magnesium alloy, it offers an ideal ratio, combining low mass, high rigidity and excellent damping. The depth of the sound and the dynamics won't disappoint you.
The design of Clear Professional solves the sensation of space reduction, thanks to their new microfiber ear cushions. Their one-millimeter diameter micro-perforations on the outside edge give a level of openness that is unbeatable at this price range. The listening experience in the room, rather than headphones, is intensified. The second benefit to this design is its extreme tolerance to ear cushion positioning, regardless of head profile and size. This degree of openness also provides the benefit of excellent definition of upper bass and low midrange registers, typically where headphones usually struggle in comparison with monitors.
Rigid carrying case. Thermoformed shell in the shape of the headphones. Can store one cable and an iLok® key (not provided), all within its compact dimensions.
Two OFC copper 24AWG cables with a very low resistance.
- A 5m spiral for domestic use
- A 1.2m cable fitted with a 3.5mm stereo jack connector
- 3.5mm and 6.35mm jack adapter
Optional: Specifically designed stand
