EISA 2018-2019 Best Product Award
"Clear by name, clear by nature. This headphone delivers a wonderfully open and translucent sound thanks to clever design and excellent build quality... Factor in the sumptuous leather-covered earpads and headband, and this new design delivers hours of musical fun in consummate comfort."

Focal Reference Headphones for much less

French audio manufacturer, Focal, creates another top performing headphone with the release of the Focal Clear open-back headphones. Following the Elear and Utopia, which were both top-selling options since their release, the Clear fits well in the line with its premium features and styling.


Clear is a new circum-aural open-back headphone for audiophiles. The 'M' -shape Aluminum/Magnesium dome is equipped with a revolutionary copper voice coil that provides remarkable dynamics across the audio spectrum, bass that is always controlled, even at high volumes, and exemplary linearity in the high-end. The new generation of perforated microfiber ear cushions adds to Clear's open design, giving the headphones a weightless, almost invisible feeling. Clear completely envelopes the user in musical purity. Given the premium materials and weighing in at 0.99lbs, you’d expect a hefty feel, but they seem light during listening sessions while still being solid and sturdy overall.

Focal Clear features leather and perforated microfiber adjustable headband with ear cup rotation and a one size fits all Aluminum Yoke with 20mm memory foam ear cushions. Clear has low impedance (55 Ohms) to ensure uncompromising use with portable high-resolution audio players. Clear also features 3.5mm locking jack sockets and comes with 3 cables. Discover a listening experience similar to that provided by high-fidelity loudspeakers and excellent performance when connected to portable high-resolution audio players.

Focal Clear vs Elear

The Focal Clear will remind you of the Elear in styling, but features a lighter grey and some stand-out features. The earcups will feel familiar with microfiber coverings over memory foam cushions. They contain the same 40mm (1.6-inch) M-type aluminum/magnesium driver, but made with a brighter aluminum housing.

The Clear also includes improved striped cables with multiple connection options and a convenient carrying case.

The Clear offers superior hardware which is evidenced by the larger frequency response range, better THD, and lower impedance.

Overall the Clear headphones don’t just sound great, they sound distinctive. The entire spectrum is refined and clear with a level of detail that isn’t present in the Elear. The engineers at Focal have done an excellent job at tuning the Clear for both lows and highs.

Focal Clear vs Utopia

The Utopia is still the best headphone offered by Focal. While the Clear is an excellent product, it doesn’t compete against the Utopia’s amazing sound and build quality.
