Focal Clear Headphones - Open Box
Focal Clear Headphones - Open Box
Open-back headphone designs are often higher-performance but have poor noise isolation and leak sound. Closed-back designs provide better noise isolation and leak less sound.
Over-ear headphones sit over your ear and surround your ear with a ring of padding. On-ear headphones are padded but rest on top of your ear. In-ear monitors are worn inside your ear canal.
Speakers and headphones use a device called a 'driver' to create sound. Different types of drivers have different strengths and weaknesses, but can all produce great sound. Common varieties include dynamic, planar magnetic, and electrostatic.
Connectivity refers to the method in which the headphones connect to the audio source. Headphones can be either wired or wireless.
The Focal Clear is a new over-ear open-back headphone from Focal made for audiophiles. The Clear bridges the gap perfectly between the Elear and the Utopia, finally giving you an option between their price points. The Clear has all the strengths of the Elear with none of its faults. Gone is the mid-range dip and uncomfortable pads. The Clear has excellent bass extension, clear, detailed mids and highs that truly stand out. The Clear also features perforated memory foam cushions and a lighter design meaning it can be used for extended listening periods with ease!
The 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. The Clear from Focal has low impedence (55 Ohms) which means taking it on the go with a high-resolution digital audio player is easier than ever! The Clear also features 3.5mm locking jack sockets and comes with 3 cables (instead of just the one cable provided with the Elear and Utopia). Discover a listening experience similar to that provided by high-fidelity loudspeakers and excellent performance when connected to portable high-resolution audio players.

Headphone sensitivity measures how loud a pair of headphones will be at a given signal strength. Headphones with higher sensitivity ratings will produce louder sounds than headphones with lower sensitivity ratings. It is measured in dB SPL (decibels of sound pressure level) per unit of power (typically 1 milliWatt) or sometimes unit of voltage (typically 1 Volt) from the source at a frequency of 1 kHz.
|104dB SPL / 1mW @ 1kHz
Total Harmonic Distortion (THD)
When driving headphones at high volumes, it is possible for the diaphragm (the ‘speaker’ inside the headphones) to be unable to move fast enough. This leads to distortion, manifesting itself as crackling, popping or the alteration of musical notes. Most headphones will fall below 1% THD.
|0,25% @ 1kHz / 100dB SPL
Headphone frequency response refers to the frequency-specific sensitivity of the output. Frequency responses show the range that headphones are capable of reproducing—a graph shows which frequencies are accentuated over others. The ideal range covers the audible sound range of 20 Hz – 20 kHz.
