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.


Open-Back Design

Headphones with an open-back design, allow air to pass through the earcups. This means that Open-Backs do not block any noise from around you, as closed-backs do, and music being heard will also leak outside to people around you. So they can only be heard in a quiet environment.


However, Open-back headphones do sound more natural and open. Open-back headphones create a feeling of space, presenting audio as if you are sitting at a live concert. Audiophiles swear by open-back headphones, and they sound quite different to closed-backs.


These headphones are perfect for critical listening sessions, mixing and mastering music. They have an accurate soundstage presentation and precise imaging.


Needs Amplification

Headphones and IEMs require a certain level of power to sound their best and work at their full potential. When your headphones or IEMs are underpowered, they can sound thin or muffled.


Amplifiers are required to provide adequate power to your headphone or IEMs to perform at their best. Simply put, amplifiers allow a weak audio signal to be boosted to a powerful one.


To put it into perspective, devices such as your phones and laptops come with an amplifier, but they offer very limited output power. This output may not be sufficient to power headphones and IEMs to shine at their best. This is where a dedicated amplifier is required to deliver adequate power to hear your music in all its glory.


Focal's Flagship Open-Back Headphone

Focal's Clear Mg open-back headphones set the bar high for sound quality and feature-rich, design-driven functionality. These premium headphones feature unique Focal technologies developed through cutting-edge acoustic research and Focal know-how. Clear Mg is a prime example of design finesse and emanates exuberance in all respects.

40mm Magnesium Speaker Drivers 

The Clear Mg hosts a 40mm dynamic driver unit. Magnesium, a material that enables sharp, precise, impactful playback and produces stunningly realistic sound, makes up the speaker drivers. The sound is incredibly pure and natural, unleashing emotions for better listening enjoyment.

Features 'M'-shaped Pure Magnesium Dome

The Clear Mg high-fidelity open-back headphones feature a speaker driver with an 'M'-shaped magnesium dome, a cutting-edge audio component. Magnesium is a lightweight material with a high damping factor that provides excellent dynamics and detail throughout the audio spectrum while maintaining a balanced signature. 

Extensive Research To Achieve Accurate Sound

The engineers at Focal have created a magnesium dome for the Clear Mg speaker drivers after four years of research and development. This material encourages even more lightness, rigidity, and damping—the three success factors for a speaker driver—when combined with an 'M'-shaped dome. This brings excellent dynamics and detail across the entire sound spectrum. For even more accuracy, the 'M'-shaped grille inside the earcup follows the contours of the speaker driver.

All-Day Listening Comfort

The leather and microfiber-covered headband maintains a smooth curve regardless of head circumference, and the solid aluminium yoke perfectly hugs the face. In addition to significantly enhancing comfort, the perforated microfibre earpads also contribute to the open sound of the headphones. The external grille of the earcups' honeycomb design contributes to this openness even more.

24 Hours Of Burn-In Period

Clear Mg's require a running-in period to operate at their best. Focal recommends playing very bassy music through them for at least 24 hours at a relatively high volume. This methodology will stabilise the speaker drivers and allow you to get the best performance out of your headphones.

Futuristic Honeycomb Design

Genuine leather, solid aluminium, and microfiber were chosen as the premium materials for Clear Mg because they provide a distinct elegance and are a clear quality indicator. The honeycomb pattern on the external grille of the earcups and the Chestnut and Mixed Metals finish is timeless and design-driven aesthetic masterpieces. Simply put, they are exceptional in their sophistication.

4-Pin XLR Cable

4-pin XLR cables enable balanced audio transmission, which helps to reduce noise and interference in the audio signal. The balanced audio transmission also allows for a higher signal quality with better clarity and detail.

3.5mm Cable With 6.35mm Adapter

The 3.5mm single-ended cables are among the most commonly used audio cables and are widely available. Many portable or desktop DAC & Amps feature a 3.5mm or a 6.35mm audio output jack, making single-ended cables a popular choice.

Rigid Woven Storage Case

The protective carrying case keeps your headphones safe from accidental bumps and scratches and allows you to carry your headphones safely wherever you go.

The Clear MG serves up lashings of detail with a hugely balanced signature while adding a degree of richness, texture and dynamics that will no doubt convert listeners away from more analytic.
The overwhelming feeling I got when reviewing the Focal Clear Mg is a sense of spaciousness in the sound and a frequency response that is warm and yet detailed with perfect focus.
The Focal Clear Mg are some of the highest resolution and dynamic headphones we’ve ever heard. These headphones have the ability to magnify details while still being kind to poorly recorded source material.
Exceptional headphones with an informative, refined and entertaining sound, coupled to excellent comfort and build. Expressive and entertaining presentation, Excellent comfort, Terrific build and finish.
There’s definitely a reason to analyze both sound signatures together, but for now, I can tell you that the Clear MG has some of the best depth in Focal’s library, with bass and warm textures.
The Focal Clear Mg is an exemplary headphone, with clean, clear sound, neutral tonal balance, and wide sound stage. Superb sound - clear, open, Neutral, precise tonal balance.

Amazing headphones but they do take some time to burnin.

At first I wanted to return but give it a good 50hr burnin and the soundstage opens and everything improves.

These headphones have amazing clarity, detail and the punch and slam is extraordinary.

Soundstage wise they are not the best but I cant explain there's something to them that doesnt make them feel like they are missing something.

I have arya's too and compared the only advantage aryas have is soundstage other than that clear mg's all day.
If you listen to track that are dynamic in nature, the dynamic slam of this headphone is unparalleled.

I havent heard the clear og's but this seems to have more bass and a bit more smooth treble.

Hey Aditya, thanks for sharing this amazing review with us. We are happy to hear that you're loving your new headphones! Happy listening! :)

Amazing and Brilliant Headphones

One of the nicest and best headphone I have heard till date. These cans offer superb audio quality and I have currently paired it with the REM ADI 2 DAC. Can be worn for hours together for long listening sessions. You would need to burn in for 50 to 60 hours for it to come into its true element. Being an open back, its more natural sounding but you would need your own personal space to listen to these. Compared to the HD800s I have, the soundstage is on the slighter lower end but this has more punchy and smooth bass, This is more of a personal listening preference I would say. These are easy to drive and can be used with any phone jack, but to reach to audiophile levels you would need a dedicated DAC/AMP setup. Yes it is expensive, but with the discounts being offered currently at headphone zone, this is totally worth the money. The only gripe I have if any is the length of the Mini Jack cable as it is too short, but yes there us a 3 meter, 4 pin XLR cable given. To get the best sound I have upgraded the default cable to the LISTA silver cable from Headgear Audio, and this has it own advantages on the sound signature and is now much improved than using the default cables. Lastly a big thanks to Headphone Zone team for having this shipped in a timely manner considering the current situation prevailing.

Hey Girish, this review just made our day! We are so happy to hear that you are having a great experience with these headphones. Thanks for sharing this amazing feedback with everyone. :)

Great Head Phone

Focal clear Mg is a beautiful open back dynamic head phone with French “luxe” built all over it. Even the fragrance of the leather head band is so arousing. One can simply keep looking at this mademoiselle for hours, leave alone wearing it. I mostly listen to Tidal masters from lap top through Topping D70s /A90 combination using balanced 4 pin cables.
My observations and usage may not be that of a sound engineer or that of an audiophile, but will benefit a normal listener looking for sound quality who is willing to spend that extra bit. This can is definitely a neutral one which tends to lean over a warm tonality. What I liked the most (a feature that stands out ) is its bass that sounds so natural as if the drummer is right in front of you and the mixer did not add his extra bit while recording. You can even distinguish the second drummer. Bass has reasonable extension to the sub level, and does not bleed into the mids. Mids are good and Diana Kralls and Natalie Merchant will sound so good that one can hear their whispers. Coming back to bass, it is fast and has good slam. Listen to Batshit by Sofi Tukker, Billie Jean by M.Jackson or Mellow my man by Roots in MQA to feel the bass of this can. Treble timbre is questionable and has something lacking in a specific range of frequency. Guitars of the blues are forward and close to the ear. However there is no distortion or sibilance and is smooth.
Sound stage is wide (180 deg and forward) and I felt it has more depth than width. Imaging is excellent where you can pin point the instrument . Instrument layering, separation and details are excellent. Listen to AR Rahman - Khwaja mere Khwaja in tidal masters to experience it. Focal provides you good 1/8” tangle free SE cables with ¼” adaptor and also with a 4 pin balanced cable. It comes with a nice hard case with pockets to store the cables.
To drive a focal clear mg one does not require D70s/A90 and D30/A30 will suffice for nearly same quality of music (and save 65 K) unless you have plans to upgrade in future. Even my FiiO BTR5 was driving focal clear mg so well.
To sum it up focal clear Mg
Strengths : 1. Build and Comfort 2. Clear and fast 3. Natural sound and bass slam with no bleed.
Cons : 1. Price to benefit ratio

HI Shyam,

After about year of use and comparing it with other price range products, I find it pretty average!

This was my one of the first costly headphone purchases. At that time I found it to be quite OK type. Though even then it did not blow my mind or anything like that. After comparing it with other costly headphone like Arya, and IEMs like Thieaudio Monarch Mk II, Audio 64 Trio and u12t, Fiio FD7 etc, I find Focal Clear Mg to be anything but clear! I think there are much better IEMs available for less than half the price! Mids are Highs are still clean but bass is boomy, that makes the whole record sound bad. I fail to understand the great reviews for this HP. Either its just me or have bad device but this is now way over its burn in period and have tested on multiple DAC/AMP combos (RME+A90 and Ares II+A50s and Chord qutest). I found it pretty average sounding.
Other features like Packaging and build are excellent though.

A fancy affair

The Clear Mg is by far the finest Focal creation. The design is an iconic focal one. If you are someone like me who wears headphones for hours at a time, this one is totally meant for you. The headband & earpads give you a beautiful comfort yet fit firmly. Getting into the nitty-gritty details, as the name suggests this one features a magnesium dome enhancing the audio & can be paired easily even with the portable AMPs due to its low impedance. As an audiophile, I would definitely recommend this one.

Thank you for the detailed & awesome review Dinesh
