Clear Mg Headphones


Clear Mg headphones from Focal supersede the Clear model and have several improvements.

New magnesium drivers offer a real performance enhancement, with tremendous audio quality across all frequencies. The build and finish quality is excellent with a striking chestnut/metal combination and comfort is exceptional, even for long listening sessions, with a leather headband with perforated microfiber central to that comfort.

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.

After four years of research and development, the engineers at Focal have designed a magnesium dome for the Clear Mg speaker drivers. Combined with an ‘M’-shaped dome, this material promotes even more lightness, rigidity and damping, the three success factors for a speaker driver. This innovation brings great dynamics and detail across the full sound spectrum while preserving a neutral and balanced signature. The ‘M’-shaped grille inside the earcup follows the curves of the speaker driver for even greater precision.

These headphones require a running-in period in order to operate at their best. They will run themselves in naturally after several hours of listening time. If you want to speed up the process, we recommend playing very bassy music through them for at least 24 hours at a relatively high volume. This will stabilise the speaker drivers and allow you to get the very best out of your headphones.
