Focal Clear Professional Open-Back Over-Ear Studio Monitor Headphones (Red/Black)

$ 1,499.00

The Focal Clear Professional Headphones are circumaural open-back studio monitor headphones designed to deliver comfortable and accurate reference monitoring for audiophiles, mixing and mastering engineers, and producers in home, project, and commercial studios. The low-impedance, high-sensitivity 40mm M-shaped dome drivers yield a wide frequency response of 5 Hz to 28 kHz with 0.5 dB variation. The 20mm thick memory foam ear cushions and leather and perforated microfiber headband maintain comfortable wearability without sonic interference or degradation. The two supplied OFC copper 24 AWG cables one with a 1/4" connector and the other with a 3.5mm jack are detachable and connect to the locking 3.5mm sockets at the base of the earcups. Two spare ear cushions are provided along with a hardshell carry case.

Clear Professional uses a new generation of Focal 40mm full-range speaker utilizing a 24.5mm diameter, 5.5mm long unsupported copper coil. This major innovation weighs just 100mg and has the effect of achieving a high magnetic field in the coil. With this, the moving parts are always under control, even at maximum capacity, providing bass articulation worthy of the best subwoofers. Formed of an aluminum/magnesium alloy and designed to deliver outstanding breadth and dynamics, the M-shaped dome offers an ideal ratio, combining low mass, high rigidity, and excellent damping. 1mm diameter micro-perforations on the outside edge of the ear cushions give a sensation of listening in the room and not through headphones. Another benefit to this design is its extreme tolerance to ear cushion positioning, regardless of head profile and size. Focal's constant curvature headband design delivers comfort regardless of listener head size. The weight of the headphones is evenly distributed over the head, support being concentrated into one or two points. Clear Professional comes with two cables so that users have the best solution for their device of choice. These OFC copper 24 AWG cables offer very low resistance and high acoustic transparency. The first cable, a 16' spiral, is terminated with a 1/4" jack for use in the studio or with a traditional audio interface or high-end headphone amplifier. A dedicated production line on Focal's site in France ensures exceptional levels of precision to be achieved. When the five manufacturing stages of the speaker are complete, every transducer is tested and measured, after which they are paired.
