Replaceable Cables

A pair of headphones with a replaceable cable has many benefits, and one of them is if the connecting cable has a problem, it doesn’t mean that you have to buy a new one. If the connecting cable gets pulled or damaged, you can replace it and keep using your good-old headphones or IEMs. This way, your headphones will be protected and will last longer. With the advancements in cable manufacturing, you now get a variety of replacement cables with various termination options, lengths and quality.

REVEALING THE TINIEST DETAILS IN SOUND WITH AN OPEN-BACK DESIGN THAT PRODUCES EXCEPTIONAL SOUNDSTAGE AND IMAGING

Clear are audiophile circum-aural open-back headphones. They represent a new evolution of Focal’s now famous open-back full-range speaker driver. The M-shape Aluminum/Magnesium dome benefits from a copper voice coil. This implementation provides remarkable dynamics over the entire audio spectrum. Bass is always controlled, even at high volumes, and exemplary linearity in the high-end. The completely open-back speaker provides unparalleled respect for dynamics. The Focal Clear offers a realistic listening experience. The aluminium/magnesium alloy M-profile dome offers an ideal combination of low weight, high rigidity and excellent damping. This means that high frequencies are linear and transients are comprehensive. Clear is capable of precisely revealing the tiniest details of the recording, taking you to the heart of your music. Unparalleled depth and dynamics are the signatures of this beautiful pair of headphones. For an open-back headphone, the Clear will surprise you with the immersive soundstage that it provides. The imaging on Clear is spectacular; you will be able to place and get a good sense of the instruments and vocal separation.

MICRO-PERFORATED CUSHIONS OFFER SUPERIOR COMFORT FOR LONG LISTENING SESSIONS

The Clear is designed for superior comfort and openness. The headband and earpads are lightweight and offer a fatigue-free listening experience. The one-millimetre diameter micro-perforations on the outside edge of the microfiber ear cushions give a level of openness that is unbeatable. The microfibre ear cushions provide a degree of "openness" unequalled in this price range. The sensation of listening in the room, and not through headphones, is intensified.
