Discover Clear Mg, Focal’s new headphones for the home
Focal presents Clear Mg, a new luxury open-back headphone for home use. In addition to its sophisticated finishes, the sound reproduction of this headphone is even sharper than that of its Clear predecessor.
The Clear Mg high-fidelity open-back headphones incorporate the new technology of a speaker driver with an ‘M’-shaped magnesium dome. Magnesium is light and boasts a significant damping factor, offering great dynamics and detail across the full sound spectrum while preserving a neutral and balanced signature.
The gold standard in Focal open-back headphones, Clear Mg delivers outstanding sound performance and sophisticated, design-led features. Made in France, these top of the range headphones incorporate exclusive Focal technologies, the result of cutting-edge research in acoustics and Focal savoir-faire. The speaker drivers are composed of a unique magnesium cone, a material that enables sharp, precise, impactful playback that results in stunningly real sound.
The elegant finish of Clear Mg is also unique with a Chestnut and Mixed-Metals design combined with the ultimate comfort of a leather headband and microfibre earpads. Supplied with two cables and a carrying case, they have everything you could need to enjoy incredible sound in a quiet environment. Fully unleashed, the sound is incredibly pure, generating a wide range of emotions for even more listening pleasure.
Drawing on decades of experience designing and manufacturing speaker drivers, Focal first positioned itself on the global hi-fi headphone market in 2016 with the release of the Utopia. The St. Etienne, France-based brand's unique expertise as a global leader in acoustics, combined with French manufacturing mastered in its own workshops, allow the brand to guarantee uncompromising quality in its headphones. With a strong commitment to research into new technologies, Focal has consistently introduced innovative advancements that make for amazing professional and audiophile-focused products.
After four years of research and development, the engineers at Focal have designed a magnesium dome for the Clear Mg speaker drivers. This new alloy, combined with an ‘M’-shaped dome, contributes to even lightness, rigidity, and damping, the three success factors for a speaker driver. The sound reproduction is fine, precise and impactful, for a strikingly realist sound. Combined with an amplifier/DAC, Clear Mg headphones display impressive performance. Thanks to an impedance of 55 Ohms, they can also be used without compromise with a portable audio player.
In developing its products, Focal places design and materials at the forefront in its mission to create the ultimate sound and listening comfort. The solid aluminum yoke has been developed to perfectly mold to the face, the headband covered in genuine leather and microfiber offers a constant curve, no matter which way the head turns, and the perforated microfiber earpads result in enhanced opening and comfort.
The outside of the earpads boasts a sophisticated honeycomb pattern: an elegance contributed to by the new chestnut and mixed-metals finish which blends classic and modern looks. For a perfect package, the carrying case has been woven in colors to match the headphones.
