Made in our Focal workshops in St. Etienne France, the Clear is our newest reference high-fidelity headphone, taking inspiration from our best technologies found in the Utopia and innovations that defined the Elear. It's full-range speakers and open back design reveal the tiniest musical details. This is important because it is the widely held impression that headphones reduce the listening space, thus impeding the realism of the sound reproduction. We have designed it to bet the pinnacle of openness, when you're wearing the Clear you will forget you are even wearing headphones. Closing your eyes, you will feel as if you are seated in the middle of a custom listening room with the best high-fidelity speakers available placed in front of you. This is because of the inverted aluminum/magnesium alloy M-profile dome which preserves breath and dynamics worthy of our finest high-fidelity speakers. While the micro-perforated ear cushions, specially designed yoke, and luxury headband make Clear both light and comfortable. What you will hear is unparalleled uniformity, and what you will feel is a transcendent understand of music. Welcome to absolute sound.
